Start With a Pest Inspection When Moving to North Port or Venice Florida

Good pest management in southern Florida communities like Port Charlotte and North Port starts with a thorough inspection of your home. Be aware that a pest inspection can mean two different things to a Sarasota area pest control company. Sometimes a wood destroying organism (WDO) inspection is called a “pest inspection”. This is a “termite inspection” and may be required by a lender prior to mortgage. This inspection is tedious and involves checking everywhere in the house or structure from top to bottom for signs of insect activity that may cause physical damage to the home such as termites or powder-post beetles for example. A wood destroying organism (WDO) inspection requires a special State of Florida license and additional business insurance requirements. All findings must be reported on a state mandated form using specific language and formatting. Learn more here: http://www.floridatermitehelp.org/
A general pest inspection can also mean an inspection for general household pests like roaches and ants. If you already own you home, you should have a general pest inspection performed at least yearly if you don’t already contract with a pest control company. This type of inspection can eliminate surprises and provide good advice to homeowners on how to minimize the potential for pest related activity. Although I recommend on-going quarterly pest treatments, having at least one treatment done per year can be helpful and discourage massive infestations from taking hold.
