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 in every place where 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, 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!): is 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 termite 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.

Get rid of the moisture that attracts termites by reducing humidity in your attic and crawl space and by using gutters to divert water away from your home’s foundation. Also fix leaks in faucets, pipes, and your outdoor AC unit. Also remove wood stakes or old form boards that are located close to your home and get rid of roots or tree trunks that are near the foundation. Monitor your home’s foundation for any signs of termite damage and, if you see some, contact us online or call (239) 334-0880 today.

When we visit your home, we’ll share the results of our thorough home inspection, go over your personalized, no cost, no-obligation estimate; and answer all your questions, including the treatment plan we’ll use and what you can expect—which will include resolving your termite problems.
If you plan to compare quotes, keep in mind that Turner Pest Control doesn’t do spot treatments or simply address the obvious problems and call it a day. Instead, our West Palm Beach termite control services will tackle your termite infestation and can prevent them from gaining a foothold in your home.
If you suspect or know of a termite presence in your home, no matter the season, don’t wait to address the infestation. Once termites settle in, they will continue to reproduce and feed on ever-growing amounts of wood in your home’s structure, causing damage and perhaps even threatening the home’s integrity. So, if you have a problem, please reach out for a free termite inspection before it becomes more significant.
If, however, we had to choose a specific season when West Palm Beach termite control services can be the most effective, we’d say winter. In Florida’s warmer temperatures, termites may gnaw on wood a bit further from their colonies’ home base, returning to them when temperatures drop in winter. Because the majority of the termites are typically close to their nests in this season, they’ll more consistently be impacted by the highly effective termite treatments we’ll apply. That said, as an assistant professor of urban entomology from the University of Florida points out, termites are most visible in our state during the spring and summer, which can make these seasons good ones for termite home inspections.
Definitely! Termites cause billions of dollars in damage each year to homes in the United States—and this includes homes in humid Florida. Plus, many times, homeowner insurance companies will not cover this damage. So, it makes sense to either proactively protect your home if you don’t currently have a termite presence or use West Palm Beach termite control to kill off the pests if you do have an infestation.
Looking at the proactive approach, first do what you can to reduce the humidity in your crawl space and attic, divert water from your home’s foundation with gutters, fix leaks, and so forth. Also reach out to the experts at Turner Pest Control in West Palm Beach to stop termite infestations before they ever get a chance to settle in. We go way beyond spot treatments, comprehensively treating the soil around your home and interior places like bath traps, pipe penetrations, and so forth. With our preventative termite control, you’ll enjoy peace of mind, knowing that termites simply aren’t welcome in your West Palm Beach home. Interested in our proactive approach? Contact us online or call (561) 791-2400. We’re here to protect you and your home!
No, it’s not, to many peoples’ surprise. Turner Pest Control provides highly effective termite treatments that don’t involve fumigation, including the following:
Florida has twenty established termite species with two of them the most problematic in West Palm Beach—formosan and the eastern subterranean—and the University of Florida offers crucial insights into the second. Because subterranean termites can be found in mud tubes located in between your home and the ground, fumigation is actually “useless for them, as the rest of the colony can move right back after the tent is removed.” So, they recommend the types of treatment that Turner Pest Control offers.
If you know (or even suspect) that you have a termite infestation, reach out to us, ASAP, either online or by calling (561) 791-2400. Some exterminators take care of the easily spotted pests and then consider the job to be finished—but that’s not the way Turner Pest Control operates. Steps we take to protect every problem spot in your home include the following:
