A Wood Destroying Organism (WDO) Inspection Report, better known as a Termite Inspection is a written report of an inspection on a home for visible and accessible evidence of an infestation or damage by wood destroying organisms. Usually this means subterranean or drywood termites, but will also cover wood destroying beetles and wood destroying fungi. In Florida, carpenter ants and carpenter bees do not have to be reported.
The WDO inspection can only be done by a wood-destroying organisms identification cardholder (or a certified operator with the wood-destroying organisms category) of a pest control company licensed by the state of Florida. These employees must receive special training to be qualified as a WDO inspector. A written inspection report must be provided by Termite Inspection Fort Lauderdale Fl and a specific report form provided by the state must be used if a fee is charged to perform this inspection.

Live termites or other wood destroying organisms.
Evidence of infestation by termites or other wood destroying organisms (including wood destroying fungi).
Damage by the termites or other wood destroying organisms.
Previous treatment for termites or other wood destroying organisms.
