More Than Just Termites

The acronym WDO stands for Wood Destroying Organism, and is used to classify pests and fungus that actually digest wood, i.e. they use your home as a source of food. Because WDOs often present little evidence of activity, they can go unnoticed for years and can be difficult to detect. Organisms included in a WDO inspection report include the following:

  • Termites, including subterranean and drywood varieties
  • Wood boring beetles, such as Powderpost Beetles
  • Wood decaying fungi (i.e. wood rot)

They’re a Bigger Problem than You Think

WDO inspections are required for VA or FHA mortgages as well as other loans from many financial institutions — and for good reason. Common industry estimates pin termite damage alone at around $5 billion every year in the United States. The average cost for repair after a termite infestation is $3,000, but can be much higher depending on the extent of the damage and what part of the home they fed on.
