Wood Destroying Insect Inspection

Termites and other wood-destroying insects (carpenter ants, powder post beetles) can cause serious problems in the wooden structural components of a home that go undetected for long periods of time. Wood Destroying Insect Inspections have different names in different areas of the country including Pest Inspections, Termite Inspections,


Wood-Destroying Insects Inspections, and Wood-Destroying Organisms Inspections, etc. Whatever it is called in your area, the inspection is generally inexpensive but could save you thousands of dollars in structural repairs and treatment.


Northern Michigan, where the climate is cooler doesn't typically have to contend with termite issues. This portion of the state does contend with carpenter ants, powder post beetles, and other wood-destroying insects. Therefore, we offer our Wood Destroying Insect Inspection to all our clients. In Southern Michigan, we're always on the watch for termite infestation as well as the other wood-destroying insects.
