What are the requirements in PA to perform a wood destroying insect inspection? I was told that in order to perform this inspection on FHA homes, you need an applicators license. Does anyone know if this is true or where I can access information as to PA requirements? Thanks

That's strange. I get :

"NACHI Forum Index
Information

The topic or post you requested does not exist"

Bummer. I've been looking for info about that for hours with not much luck. I was very interested in reading that thread. Any suggestions ?

Good move, the WDI has been a bone of contention with many poor reports by home inspectors.
