New Homeowner

Congratulations on your new home. Make sure your first guests aren’t pests or termites with the expert help of your local Terminix technicians.

Do you need a termite letter?

Whether you’re buying or selling a home, you may be here because you need a termite letter. As a seller, this termite letter, also known as a wood-destroying organism inspection (WDO inspection) or a wood-destroying-insects report (WDIR), depending on the state where the property is located, can help speed up the selling process.

As a buyer, this process helps instill confidence that the home you’re purchasing, among other concerns, has no visible evidence of termite damage, active termite colonies or other wood destroying insects. Terminix can help.

Terminix offers WDO inspections.
Call (855) 485-6300 to get started.

  • Termite activity and damage can remain hidden

    Termites do most of their work beneath the surface, meaning termite activity can be hard to spot. Once termite activity and damage are above the surface, repairs are probably in order. That’s why it’s important for your home to have an annual termite inspection. Terminix termite professionals are trained to identify visible signs of termite activity.

  • Know the signs of termite activity

    Signs of termite activity that you can look for include blisters in wood flooring, hollowed or damaged wood, discarded wings, mud tubes and drywood termite droppings. If you notice any of these signs, it’s important to have a termite professional come out to inspect your property as soon as possible.

  • Can you prevent termites?

    You can help protect your home from termites and the damage they can cause. Terminix offers different types of protection plans that include an annual termite inspection for any new signs of termite activity. Our termite plans are here to keep your property protected and, depending on the plan you choose, will cover treatment for new termite activity discovered1 and repairs for any damaged caused by termites2.

Should you buy a house with termite damage?

Buying a home is equal parts exciting and stressful. On one hand, there’s the natural excitement that comes with new beginnings. But there’s also anxiety that comes with making perhaps the largest investment decision of your life.

That investment may seem even scarier when your wood-destroying organism inspection (WDO) comes back with reported termite damage.

But don’t worry – we have tips and guidance to help you navigate the situation.
