It’s your home: only the very best protection from termite damage will do.
Some exterminators in West Palm Beach, FL kill the easy-to-find termites—and then call it a day. That’s not, though, how we operate at Turner Pest Control. We get protection into every place that termites can enter and cause problems in your home.
Here’s what you can expect with our termite pest control in West Palm Beach, FL:
These sneaky invaders will feast on the wood in your house’s structure, doing so stealthily. Although the first couple of bites won’t cause huge damage, termites just keep on gnawing, invisibly, having the power to ultimately destroy a home.
With significant infestations, you may spot termite swarms in your home. You won’t necessarily see them, though, and you could have large numbers of them without knowing it—so keep your eyes open to signs of their presence. These can include shed wings or mud tubes close to your house. If you try closing the mud tubes and they reappear, that’s almost certainly a sign of a termite infestation. Or, you may simply note the damage they’re doing to your home.
Two common termite varieties in Florida include the Formosan termites and Eastern subterranean ones. Formosans are quite aggressive and they enjoy living in our state. In fact, just one single colony could boast more than a million members. So, when we say they can live in big colonies, we mean BIG colonies.
Although the second species—the Eastern subterranean termites—are less aggressive, they’re extremely prevalent. Because of their numbers, they can actually cause more damage than the more aggressive Formosans. These aren’t the only two termite species in Florida. Numerous species appreciate our state’s wet wood and gravitate to that food source.
Here’s the bottom line: if you see a few termites in your home, plenty more are probably lurking out of sight. Termites live in colonies and the queens can lay eggs throughout their entire life, which can be up to fifty years long.
If you need termite control in West Palm Beach, FL, here’s how you’ll benefit from our termite treatments. Turner will:
Yes, we’re an exterminator In West Palm Beach, FL—and we also believe in stopping termite infestations before they ever get settled in your home. We treat soil around your house as well as interior areas where termites might gravitate to, such as pipe penetrations and bath traps.
Spot treatments are simply not enough for effective termite control in West Palm Beach. Fortunately, Turner is here to provide comprehensive termite treatments for complete protection.
Termites can slip through cracks as tiny as 1/32 of an inch, which means they can easily slither into your home. That’s why we treat even the smallest of foundation cracks, knowing that termites can use them as entry points. Another vulnerable spot that’s often overlooked (but not by Turner!): plumbing entry points. Yet another: when builders pour concrete, they may use and leave behind wood forms, an ideal place for termites to feast.
Plus, termites often hide in above-slab patios and room additions where soil levels are higher. They can then use them as an on-ramp to your home and its wooden structures. If that’s true for your home, Turner uses termites treatments for the soil to destroy the colonies before they get inside. Soil treatments work ten times more quickly than bait systems, which speeds up the destruction of these pests.
Termite damage can total thousands of dollars. Fortunately, Turner Pest Control offers comprehensive termite protection to exterminate existing colonies and prevent new ones from taking hold.
