“Every home in Buckeye should be inspected at least once a year for termites.”
Everyday hundreds of homes across the valley come under attack from micro-sized wood eating insects. Even more frightening is that because of the cryptic nature of these critters many of these infestations will not be discovered for months, years or in extreme cases decades. The threat is so real that getting a Buckeye termite inspection should be a no-brainer.
Although there is no law requiring a termite inspection report for the sale or purchase of a home your lender may require a Buckeye termite inspection report as a condition of the loan. Regardless…given the destructive nature of these critters…a termite inspection report is a valuable tool in making a good home buying decision. Nobody wants to buy a infested home and or one riddled with years of termite damage. Informed consumers should insist upon a thorough inspection and thoroughly review the findings prior to agreeing to purchase.
Buckeye is home to all 17 species of termites found in Arizona, including one of the most destructive in North America. Most termite inspectors are only familiar with one or two of the more common Arizona termites. This leaves the potential for an inexperienced inspector to overlook an infestation and/or hidden termite damage.
Consumers should be concerned about other wood eating insects such as Carpenter Ants, wood boring beetles and Carpenter Bees etc. An inexperienced termite inspector can overlook obvious signs of infestation or damage from these pests.
