In Kansas City, houses and termites go together just like any other bad relationship – you can expect some damage and plenty of disappointment.
So along with the home inspection, radon test, and sewer scope, the termite inspection (technically the Wood-Destroying Insect or WDI) rounds out the 4 most important inspections every homebuyer should always consider.
Kansas City has a few different types of havoc-wreaking wood-destroying insects that eat, burrow, and live in and around our homes.
The most common is the subterranean termite but there is also the carpenter ant and the carpenter bee.
These are the Big 3. In fact, it’s not really a matter of IF one of them pays you a visit, but WHEN.
