Arizona Wood Destroying Insect Report Form Template

Ispecx Software includes Arizona WDIIR Report in the Inspection Templates. The Arizona Wood Destroying Insect Inspection Report is the official wood destroying organism report form, published by the Arizona Structural Pest Control Commission

What is a Wood-Destroying Insect Inspection Report?

A Wood-Destroying Insect Inspection Report (WDIIR) is a document prepared only by a licensed pest control business that informs a lending institution and a buyer about termite damage or presence. As a protective measure, banks and lending institutions often require that homes be inspected for damage from termites or other wood-destroying insects before closing the sale of the home.

WDIIR's have two pages. The first page provides basic information about the inspection such as the address of the property and answers general questions, such as:

  • Are there any obstructions or areas inaccessible to inspection?
  • Is there any visible evidence of infestation or previous treatment?
  • If the damage is present, who will correct it?
  • A statement of the inspector describes the terms, conditions, and limitations of the inspection.

The second page of the WDIIR goes into more detail. It pinpoints special areas of concern such as locations of previous treatment, and areas that are inaccessible to inspection. At the bottom of page two, there is a space for the inspector to draw the structure with these details included. Obviously, this is where accuracy matters most because the buyer and lending institution rely on this specific information when deciding whether or not to go through with a sale.

Termite Information

Arizona is home to subterranean termites. The subterranean termite can severely damage structural timbers in homes, buildings, utility poles and other structures built with cellulose materials.
