As defined by the state of Florida, a Wood Destroying Organism (WDO) Report is “a written report of an inspection on a home for visible and accessible evidence of an infestation or damage by wood destroying organisms.” Types of wood destroying organisms include: subterranean termites, dry wood termites, wood destroying beetles, and wood decaying fungi. Carpenter ants and carpenter bees are NOT recorded on WDO reports.
By Florida statue, a WDO report is provided when a home or other structure is being sold and the mortgage lender or buyer requires the inspection as part of the transaction. If a WDO inspection is done for these purposes, the inspection must be reported on form 13645, as required by Florida Law [Chapter 482. 226, Florida Statues and Chapter 5E-14. 142(2)(c), Florida Administrative Code].
Our WDO inspectors have pest control identification cards from the State of Florida, designating them as having received special training to perform WDO inspections.
