What Is Included in a Home Pest Inspection?
A pest inspection includes a detailed visual examination of your home’s interior and exterior.

They’ll pay special attention to areas that tend to attract pests, including basements, attics, and crawl spaces. Once the inspection is complete, they’ll offer recommendations on how to proceed.
How Long Do Pest Inspections Take?
A pest inspection typically takes about 30 minutes, though this varies by the severity of what’s found during the inspection.
