Florida Termites

Lake City and the surrounding areas 
Wood Destroying Organisims Inspections

WDO or Termite inspections in the North Florida area are looking for signs of Dry-wood, Subterranean termites, Wood-devouring beetles, and more.

An inspector also looks for wood decay and or damage from past infestations and other conditions that make the property a prime target for an infestation. 

 

We can recomend WDO inspections through a trusted third-party licensed pest control company that services Lake City, Live Oak, High Springs, White Springs, and all the places in between.

 

WDO (wood destroying organisms: termites, wood boring beetles, wood decay, fungi, etc.) are a familiar part of our environment and therefore our homes should be inspected.

Some lenders may require a WDO inspection before closing to make sure that our home is free from anything that can destroy our property.

What WDO inspectors look for

Termite damage
  • Evidence of Termites: Inspectors look for visible signs of termite presence, such as mud tubes, wings, or swarming termites.

  • Wood Damage: Termites feed on wood, so inspectors check for any structural damage or weakened wood caused by termite infestations.

  • Moisture Issues: Termites are attracted to moisture. Inspectors look for leaks, water damage, or excessive moisture around the property that could attract termites.

  • Crawl Spaces and Basements: These areas are commonly susceptible to termite infestations. Inspectors thoroughly check these spaces for signs of termites.

  • Foundation Inspection: Termites can enter a property through the foundation. Inspectors examine the foundation for any vulnerabilities or termite entry points.

  • Inspecting Wooden Structures: Wooden elements like decks, fences, and porches are prime targets for termites. Inspectors carefully examine these structures for any signs of termite activity.

  • Tree and Landscape Inspection: If there are trees or wood-based landscaping features close to the property, inspectors assess them for signs of termites that could potentially spread to the house.

  • Attic Inspection: Termites may infest the attic, especially if there is wooden framing or other susceptible materials. Inspectors check for signs of termite activity in the attic.

  • Exterior Inspection: Inspectors examine the exterior of the property, including siding and eaves, for any visible signs of termite damage.

  • Previous Treatments: If the property has a history of termite treatments, inspectors check for evidence of previous termite control measures and assess their effectiveness.

  • It's important to note that termite inspections should be conducted regularly, especially in areas prone to termite infestations, to catch potential issues early on. If you suspect termite activity, it's recommended to consult with a professional termite inspector for a thorough assessment. For more information,  Call us today 386-361-8040
