A Wood Destroying Organism (WDO) Inspection Report 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 dry wood termites, but will also cover wood destroying beetles and wood destroying fungi.

A WDO report is also commonly called a “Termite Inspection”, “Clearance Letter”, or “Termite Letter”.

A WDO inspection report is provided when a home or other structure is being sold and the mortgage lender or buyer requires the inspection as part of the transaction. If an inspection is done for these purposes, the inspection must be reported on a specific report form as required by State Law

The WDO inspection can only be done by a wood-destroying organisms identification cardholder (or acertified operator with the wood-destroying organisms category) of a pest control company licensed by the state. These employees must receive special training to be qualified as WDO inspectors

Wood Destroying Organism (WDO) Report

A WDO report tells the buyer if the pest control inspector saw any evidence of the following:

  • Live termites or other wood destroying organisms;
  • Evidence of infestation by termites or other wood destroying organisms including wood destroying fungi);
  • Damage by termites or other wood destroying organisms;
  • Previous treatment for termites or other wood destroying organisms
  • The inspector must report the common name of the wood destroying organism identified and the location of the evidence. If any areas are not accessible for inspection these areas and the reason they are inaccessible must be reported. (For example – if an attic is not inspected, this must be noted and the reason, -e.g. “low crawl space” must be put on the form).
