It’s your home: only the very best protection from termite damage will do.
Your Ocala home can be severely damaged by termites. That’s why you need the professionals at Turner Pest Control to provide safe and effective termite protection.
Termite damage can cost homeowners thousands of dollars in repairs. You should only accept the best termite protection available—and that’s through Turner Pest Control. Other Ocala termite and pest control companies may provide minimum treatments, but we use the maximum application allowed for the most effective treatment.
We also provide homeowners a choice of termite treatment levels:
We recognize that our client’s homes and budgets are unique, so we create a termite control plan that is just for you. Our technicians perform a full perimeter treatment, including underneath your patio and concrete slabs, behind and inside bricks, and even around pipe penetrations that other companies ignore.
And you’ll have peace of mind because our termite treatment plans come with a zero-deductible termite warranty. We also offer no-tent Drywood Termite programs for Ocala residents.
Many termite control companies use shortcuts by spot treating for termites or simply excluding areas from their treatment plans. This allows them to provide more but less-effective treatments.
At Turner Pest Control, we make sure your home is protected wherever termites can enter and cause damage. Our termite treatment plans offer soil protection and more to ensure complete termite protection.
Here are a few more reasons that Turner Pest Control’s termite treatment plans are the best in town:
We do not believe in using termite bait systems. We believe soil treatments are a much more effective treatment for termites. Soil treatments are designed to kill termites and termite colonies before they can gain a foothold into your home and they work more than 10 times faster than termite baiting systems. If you think you already have termites, or just suspect there’s termite damage, there is no sense in wasting time with baiting systems.
Termites can do thousands of dollars of damage to your home. Our comprehensive termite protection wipes out existing colonies and prevents future infestations.

Termite are small, soft-bodied insects that live in large colonies and feed on wood, including timber and the wood in structures. The three major types are subterranean, drywood, and dampwood. As their names imply, subterranean termites usually live in soil; drywood termites prefer very dry wood; and dampwood termites prefer wet wood, such as in forested areas.
Turner does not offer a warranty on drywood termites, but we can spot-treat them. If you have a severe drywood termite problem, we will refer you to drywood termite treatment professionals.
The presence of termites alone is not a definitive indicator of whether damage has been done. Determining if your home has been damaged requires an inspection. If you suspect you have termites, Turner offers a free, no-obligation inspection.
It’s easy to mistake termites for flying ants. Both have four wings, but termite wings are uniform in size while flying ants have larger wings in the front. Generally, termites range from ¼ to ½ an inch long and are pale in color.
Each species has its own swarming season, but in general, spring is primetime for termites. Formosan subterranean termites, the most destructive type, are seen in spring and swarm at night. Contact us immediately if you notice swarming termites.
Termites do billions of dollars’ worth of damage in the U.S. every year. They eat nonstop, around the clock, so large populations can quickly damage wood and threaten the integrity of your home’s structure. The good news is that Turner’s comprehensive termite control services can take care of existing colonies and prevent their return.
The key to termite prevention is reducing or getting rid of the moisture that termites need. Take steps to reduce the humidity levels in your crawl space and attic; divert water away from your home’s foundations with gutters; and fix leaks coming from pipes, faucets, and your outdoor AC unit. You should also get rid of roots or tree trunks, wood stakes, or old form boards that are close to your home. Regularly inspect your home’s foundations for termite damage signs.
This is one area of pest control that homeowners should not attempt on their own. Licensed pest control professionals have the experience, extensive training, technology and products required to effectively control termites populations and protect your home.
We do not do WDOs. These are typically done by home inspectors.
