BUGCO's Termite and WDI Inspections
Why Look Out for Termites?
Termites thrive in the Houston area, as do a variety of other wood-destroying insects (or WDIs), posing major problems for both residential and commercial property owners. Ruling out infestation by termites and similar insects is a crucial step for those looking to buy new property.
Termite inspections are one of BUGCO’s specialties. Although we’re usually called to give termite or WDI inspections as a part of the real estate transaction process, we can provide you with a thorough, professional termite inspection for any reason.
They tend to eat and shelter in wood, termites can be extremely destructive to buildings and other structures. They’ll burrow into timber from the ground without causing apparent external damage. This allows them to go undetected until they have practically ruined the wood.
Termites’ harmful effects can range all the way from just being an unsightly nuisance to causing expensive property damage. They can also ruin buildings’ structural integrity, thereby making them unsafe. They cause billions of dollars’ worth of damage to wood structures in the US every year, often in southern communities such as Houston. So, if you have or even suspect a termite problem, don’t mess around!
Home Inspectors Services
We have many years of experience working with Fort Bend County and Houston real estate professionals, home inspectors, and home buyers and sellers to provide WDI inspections and termite inspections. We understand the real estate transaction process and can typically work within the time constraints imposed by buyers and sellers to provide a professional, thorough WDI inspection as well as a Texas Official Wood Destroying Insect Report.
You first need a careful, competent inspection by a highly trained professional who can identify the termites or other WDI, map out the scope of their activity, and come up with an appropriate plan of action. Different strategies will be useful depending on whether you have drywood, subterranean or Formosan termites, or some other insect altogether.
Whatever the case, your BUGCO termite inspector is trained at identifying all species of Texas termites and other wood-destroying insects and can provide you with a reasonable plan for eliminating any colonies. If termites or other wood-destroying insects are found during an inspection, BUGCO Pest Control can destroy the insects and provide you with our termite warranty.
