What does the inspector look For?

Common wood-destroying insects found in southeast iowa.

  • Termites –  subterranean termites are commonly found in the Midwest. They live in underground colonies and feed on wood.
  • Carpenter Ants – Carpenter ants build their nests in damp or decaying wood, often damaged by mold.
  • Carpenter Bees – Carpenter bees don’t eat wood, but they can cause damage by drilling holes to creating tunnels inside wooden structures.
  • Wood-Boring Beetles – Wood-boring beetles lay their eggs within cracks and holes found in wood. Their larvae gradually eat their way out over a span of several years.
