"A home inspector, upon observing some apparent WDO damage during the home inspection, can state that he or she observed damage to wood or the structure, but the inspector cannot state that it is due to a wood-destroying organism. As long as they are NOT diagnosing the condition or stating that it's due to termites or some other pest, they are okay." -- Florida Department of Agriculture (read the email).
