It’s your home: only the very best protection from termite damage will do.
Other Tampa pest control companies may only meet minimum treatment specifications, but at Turner Pest Control, we exceed them by treating with the maximum application allowed. And, unlike other companies, we give you your choice of three levels of termite treatment:
FREE ESTIMATES: There’s never any charge or any obligation for quotes on our comprehensive termite treatment plans, and you can request your estimate online.
A THOROUGH INSPECTION: Our expert technicians know just where termites hide. We inspect your home’s interior and exterior for signs of termite damage and termite activity.
A CUSTOMIZED PLAN: Based on the results of our inspection, we create a termite extermination plan that meets your specific needs and pest pressures.
EXPERT TERMITE TREATMENT: Our up-to-the-minute training and technology ensures that your termite control service is the safest, most effective, and longest-lasting treatment available.
Every home is different, so we create a termite extermination plan just for you. We perform a complete perimeter treatment, including under patios, within adjoining slabs, behind brick and inside blocks, bath traps and pipe penetrations. Our plans include a zero-deductible termite warranty.
Termites can enter a crack that’s less than the width of a human hair. Even though termites cannot eat through solid concrete, the tiniest cracks in your foundation provide a pathway for them to get to the materials they can eat.
When the concrete around your bath was poured, it may have been formed with wood. If this wood wasn’t removed, or if cardboard or plastic buckets were used for forming, you may have a termite problem in this hidden area.
If the addition of a room or patio to your home leaves the soil level too high, termites can move straight into your house and stay undetected until extensive damage becomes apparent. We inspect these areas of your home to determine if termites are entering your home through these often-overlooked entry points.
Termites can do thousands of dollars of damage to your home. Our comprehensive termite protection wipes out existing colonies and prevents future infestations.

We believe in doing things differently — we want to make sure we don’t omit any areas for treatment. We make sure to get protection in every place where termites can enter your Tampa home or cause damage. If soil protection, pipe penetrations and bath traps aren’t part of your termite control plan, you may not have complete protection.
Termites 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 Tampa 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 Tampa 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.
