This doesn’t mean that you need to write a junior high style research report on various kinds of wood destroying insects. A wood destroying insect report is a professional inspection and documentation of the presence or absence of insects such as termites, wood-boring beetles, carpenter ants and other wood destroying pests. The inspection and report will also include information about damage that has occurred from pests and potential issues that could entice the insects.
