All types of homes are susceptible to an infestation of termites (wood destroying insects), even if your home is made of stone or brick. Most windows, doors and walls are made of wood which means no home is safe.
Its important to include a wood destroying insect inspection during a general home inspection. During a wood destroying insect (WDI) inspection the home inspector is checking for any signs of infestation.
Any evidence of wood destroying insects must be visible and accessible. The types of wood destroying insects the home inspector is looking for are subterranean termites, wood destroying beetles and bees.
Some signs to look for if you suspect you have an infestation of wood destroying insects are....
-shelter tubes or mud tubes
-wings around windows or on the floor
-small nail looking holes
-holes the size of your pinky finger
-wood shavings on floor or ground
-wood appearing a whitish-yellow color with an odor
-wet or spongy wood when probed
