The conventional method for control of subterranean termites is to apply a chemical barrier in the soil between termites and the structure to be protected. Additionally, bait stations containing pesticide bait can be installed in the soil surrounding a home. Termites feeding in the stations then transport the bait to other members of the colony to feed, resulting in the elimination of the entire colony population.

Wood-destroying fungi digests moist wood and could potentially cause damage to your home and other cellulose-based materials and plants such as trees. Common wood-destroying fungi include brown, white, and soft rot. Fungi can significantly reduce the strength of the wood if the condition continues over a period of time. Proper identification of fungus is essential to developing the appropriate control measures.
Lenders (bank, mortgage company, or guarantor (FHA, VA, HUD, etc.) may require a WDO inspection. This inspection looks for evidence of infestation by termites, wood decay, fungus, wood-devouring beetles, as well as evidence of past infestations, damage to wood, or conditions conducive to infestation, and evidence of past treatments. Not all home inspectors can legally perform WDO inspections unless they work for a licensed pest control company and have been properly trained.
