Termites cause over $5 billion in damages annually to homes across the United States—and that figure doesn’t include damages caused by other insects, such as carpenter ants or wood borers. Before buying, selling, or refinancing a home, make sure there’s no damage by requesting a Wood Destroying Insect Report (WDIR) and receiving a Termite Certificate.
A WDIR is an inspection completed by a registered pest control company that looks for signs of wood-destroying insects, such as powder post beetles, subterranean termites, drywood termites, and Formosan termites—both past and present. As a company with over 20 years of experience, we know exactly what to look for, allowing us to accurately complete the report. When you trust Extermatrim Exterminating, you know your home will be in capable hands.
One of our exterminators will complete a careful visual inspection of all accessible areas of the home, including permanently attached porches, decks, storage sheds, and other structures. We’re searching for signs of insect activity such as actual insects, discarded wings, tunneled wood, and debris.
The WDIR is issued for informational purposes only, and it’s not a guarantee that the home won’t be infested in the future—only professional termite control can help with that. The report will either include the presence or absence of wood-destroying insects, along with conditions that can lead to a termite infestation.
The estimated cost of an inspection and termite certificate is $150 if you have slabs or an open crawls space and $250 for a closed-in crawlspace.
A home is a big investment and the WDIR is designed to ensure that all parties are aware of the condition of the home. This allows any problems to be addressed easily and prevents issues down the line. They’re especially important as Louisiana is a high-risk area for termites, and it’s possible to have a full-blown infestation without realizing it. The termite inspection will also inform you of any conditions that may be conducive to wood-destroying insect infestations.
When it comes to wood-destroying insects, you need the best pest control company in Louisiana—you need Extermatrim Exterminating. Our team is trained to spot the most subtle indications of a termite infestation and can save you a lot of time and money with an accurate Wood Destroying Insect Report. If we do find signs of an infestation, we can also create a custom treatment plan that’s guaranteed to work.
