The NPMA-33 is the Wood Destroying Insect Inspection Report usually provided as part of a real estate deal. It does have its limitations though. Here’s what buyers should know about the NPMA-33 form.
NPMA-33 Form Limitations
The NPMA-33 documents inspection findings regarding wood destroying insects. These insects include:
- carpenter ants

The NPMA-33 does not document any findings of the following wood destroying organisms though:
- non-insect wood destroying organisms
Other NPMA-33 Form Limitations
Inspections documented by an NPMA-33 include inspections in which no inspection was made would it have meant the breaking apart or into, dismantling, removal of any object. So, inspections didn’t include observing for possible wood destroying insects that could be hiding in the following locations:
- behind moldings
- under floor coverings
- behind wall coverings
- beneath siding
- above fixed ceilings
- beneath insulation
- within or under furniture
- behind or beneath appliances or personal posessions
