WDO Inspections In Bradenton, FL & Surrounding Areas

Wood destroying organisms, are defined as arthropods or plant life that can infest decaying, or “seasoned”, wood and cause damage to a structure. A short list of the most common occurring WDO are: termites, powder post beetles, old house borers, and wood-decaying fungi. The thing with WDO is you may not notice the damage until the repair costs reach into the thousands or tens of thousands of dollars. A WDO inspection helps identify damage, and potential damage, caused by different types of wood destroying organisms. The inspections are crucial in determining if you have a pest problem, or something bigger. In fact, wood destroying organisms are such an issue in Florida, you may be required to have an inspection if you are buying or selling a home.   WDO inspections shouldn’t only be performed when buying or selling a home. Homeowners should schedule an inspection if they are concerned that wood destroying organisms are present in their homes or if they simply want peace of mind.

Keller’s WDO Inspection & Reporting Services

Keller’s Pest Control performs WDO inspections to a “T”. We follow the strict guidelines given by the state of Florida’s Department of Agriculture, which are outlined in from DACS-13645. In general, we:

  • Look for visual signs of wood destroying organisms.
  • Note the type and location of the organism(s) found.
  • Provide/note evidence of WDO (e.g. live/dead wood-destroying insects, frass, mud tubes, exit holes, etc.).
  • Note the visual damage caused by the WDO.

If the inspection comes back clean, we will complete and provide the report mentioned above.

If the inspection reveals subterranean termites and/or other wood destroying organism activity, we will complete the report and develop a treatment quote, focusing on the specific problems noted. All reports conducted are reviewed same day and on-site.
