On this Veteran’s (Armistice) this is dedicated to my father who’s war ship pulled anchor next to the Arizona, and was the first war ship to leave Pearl after the hospital ship the Hope and the treaty with Japan was signed.
Now The State of Arizona is trying to extort money from him via use of the Wood Destroying Insect Inspection Report, as turned in by an honest inspector who is not allowed to report the termite damage is inactive, thus requiring a treatment, which will return the same result, termites are not active.
Therefore this inspector does not want to treat for termites that are not there, that which is required since reporting the are not there is not allowed by The State of Arizona, and the lending institute of the borrower.
This has likely happened to many Arizonians selling homes. So it is likely that Arizonians have payed out millions to the termite industry, and for the lending institutes.
This likely goes beyond any type of extortion done by the criminal industry.
It should be noted that many termite treatments given for house loans in The State of Arizona are a form of extortion, because the honest termite inspectors are not by The State of Arizona WDI Wood Destroying Insect Inspection Report are not allow to report that no termites were found or the termites are inactive.

If Arizonians, believe, in extortion, of money during the process of purchasing or selling a home is correct by treating for termites, which through legitimate termite inspection are not found, but THE STATE OF ARIZONA does allow this to be reported, and the lending institution therefore requires a costly unneeded treatment, and THE ARIZONIANS DO NOTING, unlike my WWII, father did during WWII, then Arizonian deserve to be extorted from.
WHO’S ON THE TAKE;
- Politicians which received money from the termite industry, and do not promote reform, of the industry, in which questions in all cases on THE STATE OF ARIZONA’S Wood Destroying Insect Inspection Report (WDIIR) inspector’s termite form will require the inspector to put whether the termites are active or inactive.
- Termite Inspector’s which do not call for the reform. The consumer should only pay treatment, when they have termites are found. Treatment given when no termites are found, returns the same results no termites are found, but the purchaser is extorted money for therefore no service rendered.
- Real estate sellers, which do not call for reform are also on the take.
- The media which does not break the story and has in the past been paid advertising dollars, from the termite industry is on the take. Lets see if ever; if THE ARIZONA REPUBLIC will break the story.
- Lending institutes which require treatment, via Wood Destroying Insect Inspection Report (WDIIR) of THE STATE OF ARIZONA, without truly checking whether there were termites found, and not asking for reform of the given form to be corrected to showing no termites. For the lending institute to be honest they should not accept Wood Destroying Insect Inspection Report (WDIIR), form, and take it that there are no termites, unless specifically stated on form. Because it is not stated on the form that the termites are active. To be honest the only course of action the lending institutes can take is to say that termite treatment is not needed. For the lending institute to require treatment when the inspector has not stated on the form the termites are active is out right extortion by the lending institute, and is extortion of a WWII which fought for this nation’s freedom.
SINCE THE NEWS MEDIA COULD EASILY BE ON THE TAKE;
Though I am not very good at social media, I would like this link to passed, on by social media such as; FaceBook, Twitter, LinkIn, Google+, and EMAIL instead going through the News Media. Only utilized those news medias which break the story about extortion trough unneeded termite treatments from purchasing or selling in THE STATE OF ARIZONA. By now the amount of money from this type of extortion is in the millions of dollars.
Having been a school teacher (math/science), and retired in THE STATE OF ARIZONA, for many years, do not feel that young people entering their respective careers should be corrupted, especially in the termite and pest control industry.
If the young people feel the same, then foreword this link; to friends who will also foreword. Also foreword this link to people in politics, real estate, pest control, news media, and the financial home lending institutes, and see how they react. If they do not react to make corrections, then you can learn how honest they are. If they do not do a thing then they are not as honest as my WWII dad or the termite inspector which inspected his house.

Because of the nature of this site, and the manner in which the media has more of a monopoly in AZ. If you could clone this page on to your website, so I can find it in Google, it would greatly be appreciated.
In my folks case on the termites the extortion was going to the buyer, seller or Realtor. In this case it was the Realtor.
Realtor said, the people who did termite treatment, said NO TERMITES, so treatment was a method by The AZ WDI to extort money in process of a house being sold.
The real estate industry of the people of Phoenix valley do not need this type of extortion by their Arizona State Government.

VA Loan Rules for Termite Inspections
Termites and what the VA labels “wood-destroying pests” can be a serious problem for home owners, buyers and sellers. House hunters often worry about the condition of older homes when it comes to these pests–in some cases rightfully so. How can an untrained observer tell whether or not a home has been damaged or infested by termites or other pests?
According to some experts, it’s very difficult to spot unless there’s obvious damage or infestation. Fortunately, VA loan rules are designed to protect the buyer and the property the VA borrower wants to purchase.
According to the Department of Veterans Affairs, “Termite inspections are required on existing properties if they are located in an area where the probability of termite infestation is “very heavy” or “moderate to heavy” according to the Termite Infestation Probability Map published in the International Residential Code.”
IF THE INSPECTOR FINDS PETRIFIED TERMITES HOLES; HE HAS TO REPORT THIS DAMAGE, BUT IS NOT ALLOWED TO SAY ON THE AZ WDI TERMITE FORM THAT THE TERMITES ARE INACTIVE. SINCE THE TERMITE INSPECTOR HAS REPORTED THE PETRIFIED HOLES AS DAMAGE, BY DEFAULT SINCE THE PETRIFIED TERMITE HOLES ARE NOT LABEL AS INACTIVE FOR THE VETERAN’S ADMINISTRATION THEY ARE TAKEN AS ACTIVE BY THE FORM WHICH THE GREAT STATE OF ARIZONA USES – WDI TERMITE FORM, AND THERE FOLLOWING IS EXTORTION OF PAYING TO TREAT TERMITES THAT ARE KNOWN BY THE TERMITE INSPECTOR AS NOT BEING THERE.
