Organisms categorized as a WDO include termites, powder post beetles, carpenter ants, carpenter bees, and wood-destroying fungus. WDOs can lead to significant damage to your home and property. CMS Home Inspection is trained and certified to provide pest inspections as part of a regular residential or commercial inspection, or as a stand-alone service.
Signs of Possible WDO Infestations:
- Sawdust-Like Frass
- Damaged Wood Members
- Mud Tubes Made by Termites

- Commonly found on the outside or inside of the home, especially during the fall or spring when larvae begin to hatch and leave the home colony.
