I had to get a termite inspection due to my VA loan and went with Crispy Critters. Very professional.

I wonder if Las Vegas climate can even support termites?

We do have Subterranean Termites here. Only really see them a couple of times a year. If the home is older I would suggest getting one. It depends on if it is a VA loan or if the under writer requires on if you will need it.

They are commonly required on FHA and VA loans and some conventionals. Ask. Note that many of the inspectors are qualified to do it as well.
