As you can see from the map below, wood-destroying insects including termites are very common in both North and South Carolina. A state approved wood-destroying insect information report is usually required when purchasing a home. In North Carolina Form WDIR-100 is used and in South Carolina Form CL-100 is used. We partner with local third party licensed pest inspection companies to perform these inspections. For your convenience, we schedule the wood destroying insect inspection for the same time as the home inspection.
The wood-destroying insects information report is the careful visual examination of all accessible areas of a building and the sounding of accessible structural members to determine the presence of wood-destroying insect infestation. Infestation includes both present and past activity of wood-destroying insects visible in, on, or under a structure, or in or on debris under the structure. Permanently attached decks, porches, storage sheds, etc. are included in these inspections. Outbuildings or other detached structures are not routinely inspected unless specifically requested by the client. In order for the report to be completed correctly the pest control inspector must have access to all interior and exterior areas of the structure to be inspected.
