This inspection is commonly requested to evaluate structures for the presence of termites (dry wood and subterranean) and other wood-boring insects (such as carpenter ants found in some California communities). The inspection also covers fungus infections such as dry rot.  Pest control inspection companies are licensed by the State of California and must file reports to the State Pest Control Board, where they remain on file for public benefit.


Changes in the reporting method provide for separation of the report into Section 1 (Active Infestation Items) and Section 2 (Recommended Corrections). Review of the State licensing guidelines is recommended to understand the guarantees provided by licensed pest control operators when they issue a Pest Control Certification (Clearance).


The Structural Pest Control Board can be reached at 1-800-737-8188 for questions or clarifications.
