Timber damage by insect larvae

A next-door neighbour warned us about an infestation affecting properties nearby. Is a HomeBuyer Report advisable?

Homes are generally free of vermin, but it is inadvisable to risk buying without more information if you have suspicions. Pests quite literally come in all shapes and sizes, and can be more difficult to treat than many buyers realise. It may not be obvious that a building is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked, a moth infestation may not be found for months after purchase, and even if treated, may never be fully eradicated. Remedies to vermin can include insecticides. As awareness of less common problems grows, more surveys should identify these and advise on remedies.
