If you have termites, or if you think that you do, you will need to get a termite inspector or pest control company to visit and carry out an inspection for you. This could be fraught with risks of scam inspectors and bogus pest control firms, if it were not for the The National Pest Management Association.



The National Pest Management Association is the national governing body for pest control professionals in the United States. Whoever you ask out to give you a pest control inspection, survey or quotation, has to be a member of The National Pest Management Association or give them a wide berth.



When someone comes to do a inspection for you, ask to see his NPMA ID card and ring them up to check that they really are registered. If they are not, do not employ the company and once they have left your premises, ring the police and report them as potential con men.



Pest controllers who are really registered with the The National Pest Management Association will use an NPMA-33 Termite Inspection Form to present their report. These forms are sold by the NPMA to their members.



There can be copies of the NPMA-33 Termite Inspection Form floating around scam rings and the Internet, so you cannot use sight of an NPMA-33 Termite Inspection Form as evidence of bona fide pest controllers.



The NPMA-33 will hold all the details of the termite inspection and will provide copies of the inspection for you, the NPMA and the pest control firm. The inspection sheet will also have a unique reference number so that the report can be easily found again.



The NPMA-33 Termite Inspection Form is a very precious document as it can be utilized as evidence during the sale of a building. It can be requested by the buyer or the estate agents or the vendor can offer one willingly. The NPMA-33 is testimony that the house has been checked and given the all-clear or that it had termites and that they have been wiped out.



The NPMA-33 Termite Inspection Form is very simple and easy to understand, so should not be mystery of technical jargon to whomever commissioned it.



The first part of the form specifies the property that was surveyed and the name and registration number of the company that filled out the report. The registration number does not refer to their NPMA membership number, but to their state license to function as a pest control company.



The second part of the form gives particulars of the commissioner of the report and the actual person who carried out the survey along with his or her license number to work as a pest control inspector. The next section deals with any problems found and how to rectify them.



There should be no section or even space or field left empty on the The NPMA-33 Termite Inspection Form. When it has been completed, copies should be sent to interested parties and agreements about remedial work made. It is a question of mutual agreement whether the remedial work is carried out by the vendor or the buyer.
