Unfortunately, termite inspection reports are not always easy to understand or helpful to buyers and sellers. Different termites have different biology and behave differently. Termite reports are useful tools to know about any termite damage and their general whereabouts. However, these reports don’t provide anything on the biology of the termite species. Furthermore, one termite species can be mistaken for another species. Other times, sellers and buyers can get confused about the necessity of a particular treatment and may wonder about the reason behind a specific recommended treatment method.
