WDI Insect Inspection



What is a wood destroying insect?

Wood Destroying Insects like Termites, Carpenter Ants, Wood Boring Beetles and other Wood Destroying Organisms (WDO), cause significant damage to homes and buildings here in Massachusetts and across the U.S.. WDI Inspections can help determine whether or not a building or structure has an active infestation. WDI and WDO essentially mean the same thing. Some organizations refer to wood destroying pests as insects while others call them organisms. Most wood pests are both insects and organisms so both terms are appropriate and often used synonymous. However, there are some organisms that are a wood destroying fungus and not actually an insect.

When is a WDI pest inspection required?
