Our up-to-the-minute training and technology ensures that your termite control service is the safest, most effective, and longest-lasting treatment available.
Termite infestations often go unnoticed. They nibble away from the inside, often feasting on important structural parts of the home.
Over time, termites can destroy a home. Orlando homeowners should be particularly watchful for signs of termite damage since the dreaded Formosan termite species is found throughout the city.
Turner Pest Control’s termite plans begin with a complete termite inspection. Only after a comprehensive report is assembled are we able to recommend a customized treatment plan that’s right for your home and your budget.
We offer three termite treatment levels:
At Turner Pest Control, we believe in preventing infestations before they can begin. That means treating the soil around your home, as well as the areas around pipe penetrations and bath traps. Spot treating for termites is not a comprehensive plan for termite control and extermination. Without attention to prevention in these areas and more, you are not receiving complete termite protection.
Termites can do thousands of dollars of damage to your home. Our comprehensive termite protection wipes out existing colonies and prevents future infestations.
We treat under patios, inside pipes, inside blocks, and anywhere else termites hide
We offer economic Premise treatment, high-tech Termidor, and environmentally friendly Altriset

Our green treatments are so safe that no warning labels or first-aid instructions are needed
In Orlando, where the Formosan termite is prevalent, it’s essential that a treatment and prevention plan include attention to the following areas:
For homes in Orlando, we use soil treatment rather than termite bait systems. It’s a technique based on prevention: eradicate termites and their colonies before they can enter your home and gain a foothold.
The added benefit of soil treatments for Orlando homeowners are that they are faster — more than 10X faster than baiting techniques!
Everyone knows termites love to eat wood. But did you know they prefer their wood to be wet? Even better if it’s moldy! It’s yet another reason homeowners should be on the lookout for mold in their homes. And in a humid, semi-tropical climate like we have here in Orlando, homeowners need to be extra careful when it comes to mold.
Here are a few more termite facts you should know if you own a home in the Orlando area:
Want to know more about termites and other pests in Orlando and how you can protect your home? Turner Pest Control has answers, advice, and solutions.
With so many different types of pests in the Orlando area, it’s not easy for most homeowners to easily identify all of the flying and crawling insects without the help of a pest control pro. Even if you don’t know what termites look like, however, there are ways you can spot termites in your home. Contact us for termite control service if you see any of the following:
There are three major types of termites: dampwood, drywood, and subterranean. These names are very descriptive: dampwood termites like damp or wet wood; drywood termites eat very dry wood; and subterranean termites live on and/or below the soil. If you believe your Orlando home has termites, our trained technicians can identify the type you have and recommend the best treatment.
Termites eat cellulose, which is the main “ingredient” in the walls of plant cells and vegetable fibers. Cellulose can be found in both natural and manmade materials, including sheetrock paper, fabrics, insulation, newspaper, cardboard, wood, plastics, wallpaper, boxes, carpet backing, foam, plants, and more.
Although the exterior of your home may not be clad with wood, wood is likely to have been used somewhere in your home’s construction. Stucco homes are built over a wooden frame and concrete block and bricks homes can have wooden sheetrock furring strips, subfloors, roof trusses, load-bearing walls and more.
The most important thing to remember about termite prevention is that they will be attracted to moisture in and around your home. Think about how you can lower the humidity in your attic and/or crawl space; direct the flow of water away from the foundation of your house; and repair any leaky faucets and pipes to reduce moisture outside of your home. Also look for old wood form boards near your home, and get rid of tree stumps entirely. The best form of prevention is vigilance: Inspect your home several times a year for signs of termite activity.
Do-it-yourself termite extermination products are available on the market, but considering that there may be thousands of dollars in damage at stake, it’s never a good idea to tackle termites on your own. A professional pest control technician has access to the most effective products and has the knowledge to apply them properly and safely. Termite control experts know where to look for hidden termites, identify the specific type you have, and use a combination of methods to eradicate them. If you’re considering a DIY termite solution, contact us first—we offer a no-obligation inspection at absolutely no cost to you. Call us at 407-675-5000 or complete the form at right to schedule your appointment.
