Default Reporting WDO

Tonight I inspected a 55 year old home that was previously treated as per the drill holes throughout the entire unfinished basement. I did find 2-3 small, old mud tubes on a joist with no damage. How would you write it up on the NPMA-33? Would you recommend a treatment being it was already treated?

If it was previously treated and there were no signs of any live termites I would check the box that says the area was previously treated and then check the box that says no recommendation for further treatment.

From the rear of the form:

2. Treatment Recommendation Guidelines Regarding Subterranean Termites: FHA and VA require treatment when any active
infestation of subterranean termites is found. If signs of subterranean termites — but no activity — are found in a structure that
shows no evidence of having been treated for subterranean termites in the past, then a treatment should be recommended. A
treatment may also be recommended for a previously treated structure showing evidence of subterranean termites — but no
activity — if there is no documentation of a liquid treatment by a licensed pest control company within the previous five years
unless the structure is presently under warranty or covered by a service agreement with a licensed pest control company.

Yeah I know what it says but in this case there is no definitive way of knowing if the treatment was within past 5 years as it is an estate sale of an unoccupied home. I just hate to recommend a treatment for old non-active signs of termites.

Yep. Down here I recommend treatment "if not under a current control warranty".
It protects the consumer and yourself.
