Having a home inspected for Wood Destroying Organisms is critical. Many homes in Georgia have a termite warranty, however this may or may not cover any damages caused by termites. A termite warranty does not protect you from the other wood destroying organisms such as Powder Post Beetles, Wood Boring Beetles, Drywood Termites, and Wood Decaying Fungi. Even if a home has a termite warranty, it may not have been inspected for years. Yearly inspections are not required by Georgia law. So protect yourself and your investment by demanding an Official Georgia Wood Infestation Report from a licensed Georgia pest control operator. This will help you make an informed decision including the history of evidence of both past and present infestations of Wood Destroying Organisms.
