What Is a Home Pest Inspection?

A home pest inspection is a professional examination of a property to identify and assess pest infestations and potential vulnerabilities to future infestations.

Why Is a Home Pest Evaluation Important?

A home pest inspection is important for a few different reasons including:

  • Homeowners Insurance Exclusion: Most policies don’t cover termite damage, emphasizing the need for early detection.
  • Preventative Action: Halts potential infestations before they begin, avoiding extensive damage.
  • Early Treatment: Addresses current infestations promptly to prevent worsening conditions.
  • Knowledge and Peace of Mind: Provides certainty about the presence or absence of pests in your home.
  • Moisture Evaluation: Identifies moisture problems that could attract pests or indicate hidden issues.

What Can Be Found During a Pest Inspection?

An in-depth 5-point pest inspection typically focuses on key areas of your home to identify and evaluate the risk and presence of pests. While the specifics might vary, here are the top 5 aspects commonly examined during such an inspection:

  • Entry Points: Inspectors assess potential entry points for pests around your home. This includes examining doors, windows, vents, and utility lines for any gaps, cracks, or holes that could allow pests to enter. Special attention is given to areas where different materials meet, such as where brick meets wood or foundation meets exterior walls.
  • Moisture Levels: High moisture areas are attractive to many pests, including termites, carpenter ants, and rodents. Inspectors might use moisture meters to identify areas of concern, such as leaky pipes, poorly ventilated bathrooms, or areas with standing water around the foundation, which could serve as breeding grounds for pests.
  • Food Sources: Pests are always on the lookout for food. During the inspection, areas where food is stored, such as kitchens and pantries, are carefully examined for signs of pest activity. This includes looking for improperly stored food, pet food, and garbage that could attract pests.
  • Harborage Sites: Inspectors identify potential nesting and hiding spots for pests within and around your home. This could include cluttered areas, overgrown vegetation close to the structure, woodpiles, and other debris. Inside, they’ll look at basements, attics, and crawl spaces for signs of nests or conditions conducive to pest harborage.
  • Signs of Infestation: Finally, the inspection will look for direct signs of pest infestation. This includes droppings, gnaw marks, damaged wood, mud tubes (for termites), nesting materials, dead pests, and live pest sightings. The presence of these signs helps in identifying the specific types of pests that may be troubling your home and begin pest control measures as soon as possible.
