It’s your home: only the very best protection from termite damage will do.
When it comes to termite control in Fort Myers, we never cut corners. Instead, we apply protection everywhere that termites can get inside to cause damage.
While other companies that provide pest control in Fort Myers might only meet the minimum requirements for termite treatments, we exceed them. At Turner Pest Control, we use the maximum allowable applications, giving you a choice among three levels of termite treatments:
Each home is unique—and so are the plans our exterminators in Fort Myers will implement for you. They all contain a complete perimeter treatment, which includes behind brick and inside of blocks, bath traps, and pipe penetrations; and under patios and within adjoining slabs. For complete protection, our plans also include a termite warranty with zero deductibles. Plus, we provide treatments for Formosan termites as well as for swarming termites and more.
Termites can slither through tiny cracks, including ones less than the width of a single human hair. They can’t eat through solid concrete, but they can take advantage of minuscule foundational cracks as a pathway to materials they can gnaw.
When your home was built, the concrete around your bath may have been shaped with wooden frames. If the contractor didn’t remove the wood—or if plastic or cardboard buckets were used to form the shape—then termite problems can exist in this hidden space.
When a patio or room addition leaves too high of soil levels behind, termites have an on-ramp to move into your home. Once inside, they can hide, only visible via the extensive damage they can create. The Turner team inspects these areas of your house, investigating whether termites are entering your home through these overlooked spots.
Soil treatments are the ultimate, killing termites before they even enter your house. Plus, this superior treatment works ten times faster than bait systems. Once you know about termite presence, there’s no time to waste. Damage is already in process, so we won’t waste your time with inferior treatments.

We Do Things Differently
Not all termite treatments are the same. With Turner, we ensure we don’t skip over any treatment areas providing protection where termites can lurk. So, if soil protection isn’t part of your termite control plan, you may not have complete protection. The same is true if you don’t have protection in bath traps and around pipe penetrations.
Three major types are subterranean termites, drywood termites, and dampwood termites. They’re all small, soft-bodied insects. They gather and live in large colonies, which feed on wood. This includes wooden structures found in homes. There are, however, differences among types. Subterranean termites usually live in the soil. Drywood ones, meanwhile, go after very dry wood while dampwood ones seek out wet wood.
What’s most crucial: reducing or eliminating the moisture that termites require. So, lower the levels of humidity in your attic and crawl spaces, and install or clear out gutters to most effectively channel water away from your house’s foundation. Check your faucets, pipes, and outdoor air conditioning unit for any leaks and repair any found. Also remove these things away from your home’s foundation: wooden stakes, roots, tree trunks, and old foam boards. Don’t make it any easier for termites to get inside. Finally, check your foundation regularly for any signs of termite damage and reach out for help when you need termite control in Fort Myers.
You still can, yes. Even in homes without wooden exteriors, builders most likely used wood in the construction of the house. For example, stucco homes are built over wooden frames while brick homes can have plenty of wood: as subfloors, load-bearing walls, roof trusses, and sheetrock furring strips made of wood. If you have any reason to suspect a presence or infestation of these gnawing pests, contact our exterminators in Fort Myers.
Although there are DIY products on the market, it’s never a good idea to try to take care of these pests yourself. Termites can cause thousands of dollars of damage in your home, and companies offering professional pest control services can safely and effectively apply the latest products.
