Comprehensive Termite Escrow Reports
Termite Real Estate Transaction Inspections (WDOR, NPMA-33 report, WDI)
The termite inspection report is also known as the “wood-destroying pests and organism inspection reports.” Termite escrow reports are typically ordered by the bank funding the property’s loan or second mortgage.
Your Triton Termite Inspector will start by inspecting the outside of the home or building. After thoroughly examining the outside of the home or building for evidence of termite infestation, the termite inspection will move to the interior i.e. to the bedrooms, living rooms, kitchen, bathrooms, attic, subarea and/or basement, and garages. This will include inspecting for leaks in the plumbing. Your inspector will pay extra attention to typical termite harborages like rafters, roof facing, roof shingles, fascia, windows, and doors.
As an agent working on behalf of your clients, you have the responsibility to make sure that all aspects of their transactions are looked after in every way. And you need a reliable and fully-licensed termite inspector to perform a quality termite inspection and possible treatment and/or repairs. Triton Termite & Pest Control is your trusted partner.

Subterranean termites move through mud tubes known as “shelter tubes” which protect them from predators. Your License-To-Kill termite technician will thoroughly inspect your garage, attic, and other areas for these tubes and other evidence of Subterranean termite activity. Subterranean termites live in the ground and come up to feed on the wood in your home. It is necessary to treat access points throughout the home where the subterranean termites can enter. Many times, front porches, garages, and other areas that have cement need to be drilled and injected with termiticides underneath the cement slabs to provide successful termite control. These treatments place a barrier of protection in the soil around the foundation of your structure. When termites cross it, they pick up the termiticide on their bodies and spread it to other termites, eventually eliminating the entire colony. Liquid termite treatments come with a three-year warranty. This warranty is renewable and transferable.
Drywood termites swarm into the home, creating new colonies. If your structure has an infestation of Drywood termites, your termite inspector will see evidence of wings, boring dust, fecal pellets (termite droppings), or termite galleries during the inspection. We treat for Drywood termites in several ways; fumigation, localized “spot” treatments, and wood replacement. Liquid termite treatments come with a three-year warranty.
There are two different kinds of fungus that all termite inspectors look for. When wood has become infected with fungus or dry rot, it must be removed immediately. Care must also be taken to ensure the source of moisture is sealed to prevent further leaks. If left alone, the excess moisture and weakened wood provide a perfect entry point for a colony of termites.
Both true and false Powder Post beetles will leave holes and other damage in wood. We treat wood-boring beetles in a variety of ways depending on the severity of the infestation; whole structure fumigation, local “spot” treatments, and/or wood replacement.
When wood directly contacts soil, the wood decays rapidly. Timber to soil contact conceals termite infestations and causes dry rot and fungal infections. Typically, the wood will need to be replaced – or at the very least, the soil re-graded.
Any type of paper trash, leaves, wood branches, firewood, cardboard, etc. left under or around the home will encourage termites to feed there. Removal of these items will decrease the chances of infestation.
