Termite & Wood Destroying Insect Inspections
In the United States termites cause more than the combined damage of fires, earthquakes, and storms. In greater Cincinnati, we find about one house in ten infested. A far greater number of homes have had termites. The most important value of a properly written report is the disclosure of the damage to the structure caused by wood destroying insects. It takes an experienced inspector with the appropriate license to make this inspection and write an accurate report.
This report is for more than just termites. The subterranean termite is the number one wood- destroying pest in the United States. That is why its name is often attached to the "termite report".
There are other wood destroying insects such as:
Carpenter Ants do not eat wood, but excavate it. They prefer to live in moisture-laden wood and are usually evident when moisture problems are prevalent.
Powder Post Beetles: small beetles whose larvae feed in hardwood such as oak
Amoeboid Beetles: small beetles whose larvae feed in softwood such as pine
Old House Berets: rather large beetles whose larvae feed in softwood timbers.
Bumblebee sized insects that drill a dime-sized hole in un-painted wood surfaces.
