TREC Approved Course #38224

Termite (WDI) Inspection and Moisture Investigation

The goal of this course is to teach Texas Home Inspectors how to perform wood-destroying insect inspections according to Texas Real Estate Commission and Structural Pest Control Service guidelines, as well as state approved reporting methods using the NEW T-5 Wood Destroying Insect Report forms.

While wood destroying insect inspections exceed TREC SOP’s, Texas Inspectors may find that their general knowledge, as well as their home inspection services, can be enhanced by becoming familiar with the different Wood Destroying Insects (WDI) in Texas, along with structural threats they pose. The state specific guidelines for WDI treatment can help Texas Home Inspectors add value to their inspection services and provide useful information to their clients.

This course teaches the inspector how to inspect for indications of infestation of wood-destroying organisms that may exist in a building using a visual examination with the use of specialized equipment.

Topics Covered:
  • Licensing Requirements by the Structural Pest Control Service. 
  • Identifying conducive conditions that attract wood destroying insects to a structure.
  • Identifying moisture problems in a home, which is a key factor in helping prevent attracting Wood Destroying Insects to a structure.
  • Describe and sketch the biological aspects of common wood-destroying organisms.
  • Identify and describe termites, fungi, and common wood-destroying insects.
  • Communicate treatment and management options for wood-destroying insects.
  • Methods to prevent termite damage.
  • Inspect crawlspaces; basements; and foundation structures by following an inspection checklist and WDIR form.
  • List the critical laws concerning wood-destroying insects.
  • Describe the value of the inspection in relation to the real estate transaction.
