WDO inspection is checking for Wood Destroying Organisms. This inspection is more commonly referred to as a termite inspection. It's called a WDO because termites are not the only wood destroying organisms in the world. The WDO inspector is trained to look for things that we don't typically think about. They inspect the attic for minute damage that indicates the house has an issue. Always hire a qualified inspector to perform your WDO inspection. In Florida, it is imperative that all structures be WDO inspected.
A Wood Destroying Organism (WDO) Inspection 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. Usually this means subterranean or dry wood termites, but will also cover wood destroying beetles and wood destroying fungi.
In Florida, carpenter ants and carpenter bees do NOT have to be reported.
