Working with a pest control company should be a priority as soon as you buy a new house. Identifying past or present pest damage early can prevent costly infestations and repair costs from damage caused by wood destroying insects such as termites and carpenter ants.
A WDIR is a report detailing any presence, or lack there of wood-destroying insects in or around your home. To perform an inspection, your pest control expert will look at any wooden components of the house to see any visible signs of wood-destroying insects, past or present.
The most common wood-destroying insects are termites. Termite inspections are especially important if you've noticed detatched insect wings around your property or near your windowsills. While performing a termite inspection, your pest control expert will look at any of the wood features of your home that are susceptible to termite damage. They'll look at the walls to make sure termites aren't creating a home in the wood as well.
Examples of other wood-destroying insects are:
All these pests have their own unique methods for getting into the wooden components of your home and destroying them. However, they all share the ability to cause costly damages to your home.
Working with a pest control company should be one of the first items on your list of "what to know when you first buy a home."
This is because pests can cause damage to your house that can cost thousands of dollars. It's important to know if there have been any pests in the past so you can continue to have routine inspections. If there are active pests in the home, you may be able to settle on a deal with the seller before paying for the treatment and damage yourself.
Even if you don't find evidence of pests in the home, it would be wise as a new homeowner to set a monthly budget for inspections. The pest control experts at Viking Pest explain, if you catch wood-destroying insects early enough you can minimize the amount of damage caused. We prefer to focus on prevention rather than crisis management because it saves you time and money in the end!
