Annual termite inspections are essential for early detection of termite activity. If detected in time, you may be able to prevent the risk of large scale damage and expensive repairs. Termite inspections assess the conditions that make a property susceptible to timber pests and identify ways to mitigate and minimize risks of infestations.
Regular inspections help our technicians identify the risks of termite infestation on your property. In the case that termite activity is found, our technicians will identify the termite species infesting your home and recommend the most effective termite treatment for your particular needs.

Using local knowledge
Where you live is unique; there really is no place like your home. Western Exterminator specialists have on-ground termite control experience and in-depth local expertise, backed by science and industry-leading innovation. They understand the climate and pest pressures of your area, making Western Exterminator your best defense against termites.
Your specialist will provide you with a full report at the completion of every termite inspection. Combining their findings with local insights – from wood types to weather – they’ll work with you to develop a customized treatment plan for your unique property.
Scheduled inspections take an average of 1 to 1.5 hours to complete, depending on the size and intricacy of your property. Here is what you can expect during a termite inspection:
Before your termite inspection, one of our licensed inspectors will discuss your concerns and any particular needs you may have. The inspector will then give you a thorough description of what the inspection will involve. In order to facilitate this inspection process, please eliminate any clutter and remove items stored against the perimeter of the premises. The inspector will require access to all walls on your property.
The inspector will examine both the inside and outside of the property, including attics, patios, porches, garages and sub-areas (basements, crawl spaces, etc.). In each of these locations, the inspector will look out for possible leaks in high moisture areas, areas with compromised structural integrity, and signs of termites themselves.
When the termite inspection is complete, you will receive a report describing the findings - whether or not termite activity was discovered, areas of concern and damages (if any). Recommendations and an estimate for treatment, repair and follow-up will also be provided in the report so that you can determine the best course of action.
When it comes to termites, there is often no obvious indication to the untrained eye that a structure is infested, or vulnerable to infestation. If you’re looking for a home termite inspection near you, Western Exterminator offers a free termite inspection that will provide you with all the information you need when deciding what to do next.
Most lenders require a termite 'clearance' before providing funds for a home purchase. Similarly, most buyers want confidence that the property they are purchasing is free from infestation before making a large investment. Western Exterminator is certified in conducting real estate inspections, providing all necessary documentation in compliance with full disclosure laws, ensuring no surprises from voracious wood eaters when escrow closes.
Home sellers should consider getting a termite inspection prior to listing the property. That way, any required work can be factored into the listing price. By acknowledging the presence or absence of pest activity or damage early in the process, you can avoid delays in closing escrow.
Home buyers should ensure that a termite inspection is part of the escrow instructions. Whether your lender requires it or not, it is in your best interest to be vigilant. After the inspection, you can feel free to contact our inspector for any clarification required. We are happy to answer any questions.
Western Exterminator also provides Wood Destroying Organism (WDO) inspections for real estate purchases and refinancing. In addition to termites, our technicians are trained to inspect for evidence of carpenter ants, carpenter bees, and wood-boring beetles, among other wood destroying pests.
