Do you have wood in or around your house that’s in disrepair?
It may be time to inspect for termite damage. Termites are attracted to wood, particularly moist wood because they use it as food. The wood inside of your home is susceptible to termite damage, as is wood outside of your property. This can present a serious problem if the wooden
structure is close or comes in contact with your house foundation. Living in South Florida doesn’t make matters any better. Termites thrive here because of the moist, humid environment. So, if you are a homeowner in Hollywood, West Park, Fort Lauderdale, or any other city in
South Florida, it’s time to contact the experienced team at Captain Termite for pest control in Fort Lauderdale, FL.

Termites may be living in your home without your knowledge. In most cases, they go undetected until serious damage becomes obvious. If you don’t know what termites look like or how to pinpoint their damage, these are the signs to look for :
- Piles of wings around the house
- Termite pellets (these resemble mounds of salt or pepper)
- Stuck windows and doors
- Damaged wood
- Discolored drywall
- Hollow sounding wood when struck
- Ceiling and wall damage that resembles water damage
- Termites around your home (they look like winged ants)
Don’t Attract Termites
You could be attracting termites without realizing it. In many situations, we discover that our clients are attracting termites in the following ways:
Tree stumps: If you have a tree stump on your property, this is a perfect home for termites. Once there, it’s only a matter of time until they reach your house.
Mulch: If you use mulch for gardening, termites will be attracted to it. Make sure your mulch isn’t touching your home’s foundation. Place a barrier between your home and the mulch, as this can help prevent termites from migrating to your house.
Poor roof maintenance: There are many ways your roof can invite termites. Clogged gutters and low-hanging tree branches are just two examples we can think of.
