Wood Destroying Pest Inspections for Wilkes-Barre, Scranton, and Allentown:
Procor’s pest inspectors will do a visual inspection of all readily accessible areas of the structure such as attics and crawl spaces. The inspection also includes probing any unobstructed and accessible areas to determine if there is any visible evidence of the presence or absence of a termite infestation or any other wood destroying insects.
We can also provide pest control options if termites or any other wood destroying insect activity is found in the home.

The NPMA-33 Report is separated into 5 Sections:
- Section I, General Information: Basic information, such as address and date of inspection, that is required about the property that is being inspected.
- Section II, Inspection Findings: Contains the inspector’s findings. Procor will report whether or not the structure had any visible evidence of wood destroying insects. This would be evidence of either live activity or evidence of an infestation with no live activity; live activity is not always necessary. We will also note if there is any indication of previous treatment for pests. Evidence of a previous treatment might include pesticide dust on joists, drill marks around the foundation, termite bait stations around the exterior, etc.
- Section III, Recommendations: This is the section where the inspector will recommend if treatment is required and for what type of wood destroying insect. The FHA and VA require treatment when signs of any active infestation of subterranean termites are found. A new treatment might be recommended, even though a structure might have been treated in the past, if there is no documentation of a liquid treatment by a licensed pest control company within the previous five years or if the home is not under any active termite warranty with a licensed pest control company.
- Section IV, Obstructions and Inaccessible Areas: This type of inspection is a visual inspection only. Procor’s inspectors won’t break apart, dismantle, or destroy anything in the home. We can’t see into sealed walls, nor can we pull up flooring. Procor’s inspector will use the key provided in Section IV to indicate which areas are deemed inaccessible.
- Section V, Additional Comments and Attachments: The pest inspector will sometimes list conditions that might be conducive to wood-destroying insects They will also attach any other documentation that might be an integral part of the report.
