RodentsHarborage Points: Rodents and cockroaches seek living spaces that are small and dark. Little cracks and crevices throughout your facility can provide breeding and living areas for pests.
RatsEvery month our Orkin Man calls to schedule an appointment and there is no time that is inconvenient for him. He even comes early in the morning before I go to work, and I do not hesitate to leave him alone in my house when I have to go to work before he is finished. I recently was having problems with rats in my utility room and he offered to come and pick up the dead ones for me. If you continue to employ Orkin Men like him, Orkin will keep clients like me happy and retain us as customers for many years.
Insects and Spiders
AntsFrom the first time I contacted Orkin due to ant infestation in my house, I was immediately provide with prompt and courteous help. Once I explained to them my ant dilemma, a technician (Jaime) was sent to my house within a reasonable time. When the technician came to my house, he was very personable and courteous, and after I discussed with him the ant problem that I had, he promptly proceeded to perform the required spraying. Over a course of several months, I intermittently have had to call Orkin for recurring ants presence, and again, Jaime has come over promptly and performed the needed spraying. Ants continue to appeal periodically, but I am very pleased that a call to Orkin takes care of the problem.
SpidersThe Orkin Man took over our account, and we have not seen a single ant or centipede since! There has, also, been a significant decline in the number of spiders. We couldn’t believe what a huge difference he made, but the proof was right before our eyes! One primary difference we noticed right away was that each time he came to treat our house, he changed out the sticky traps and sprayed (or at least inspected) the exterior perimeter. It’s not easy to find the kind of thorough professionalism and thoughtful, courteous service that he provides. We thought you should know what a wonderful Orkin Man you have.

Bed bugsQuestion: I was in a hotel last week, and after being home the last few days, my husband and I have gotten new bites at night. Do I need to have someone come and treat for bed bugs?
FleasThe Orkin Man accommodated our needs and did an extraordinary job. For example, in late August when we returned home from vacation, we walked into our house to find it was infested with fleas. I called on Saturday afternoon at 4pm desperately in need of help. He arrived at my house in one hour giving us the service we needed. This is one of several situations in which he accommodated us. Orkin can truly say they have an employee who knows how to keep customers satisfied. Isn’t that what a company wants to hear!
CockroachesAnswer:: It is a difficult battle to try to control cockroaches because they can easily move from one unit to another. Contact your property management and ask them to call Orkin for a free and comprehensive inspection of the complex.
BeesTom is my Orkin Man, super professional.always calls to confirm. Last year I had an ant attack. Tom came out ASAP. Unreal gone the next day. Last week I had a swarm of Bees go in my garage. Tom came out ASAP and checked all over and assured me that they were just passing through. He takes his job very seriously and is so knowledgeable!!!! Please give him special recognition
WaspsI am a longtime Orkin customer. Throughout the years, I have not had one problem with pests. Two weeks ago, I found two carpenter ants in my home and several wasps flying around. Even though the temperature was in the 90s, our Orkin technician spent over an hour examining my home, inside and out. He found the carpenter ant nest in a damaged part of an old tree. He explained what method he would use to treat the area and how long it would take before the ants would be gone. Brian also found several dead carpenter ants in my basement, which indicated the quarterly treatments were working. Then, he pointed out another line of ants along the outside foundation of my home. He also treated that area. The Orkin Man educated me on the wasp problem, explaining that they were mud daubers – solitary wasps and not aggressive. He was very knowledgeable and had the ability to give information in a way that a lay person would understand. I thought he was an excellent teacher. I appreciate the excellent service at my Orkin branch.

CricketsIn March and April for 18 days and nights, every 5 or 6 seconds I have a sharp noise in my laundry room and spare room. I thought there were crickets breeding. I sprayed every day for about 10 days until I was getting a headache, even with open doors. I called Orkin and the Orkin Man came in less than an hour. Upon entering the room, he told me that it was the smoke detector and it needed a battery. I just can’t tell you what a relief that was. In addition, there wasn’t a service charge. It sure is good to know that there are still honest companies left. Also, this Orkin Man is the finest gentleman I have ever met.

CentipedesBecause of the location of our home, we seem to attract more than our fair share of scorpions and centipedes. Each time we’ve called Orkin, the Orkin Man responds quickly. He advised us when he’s changed treatments or procedures to better deal with these pests. He provides an invaluable service. Congratulations on having an exemplary employee.
BeetlesI have had several Orkin Men, but the best is my current one. I found several spiders and beetles in my home and called Orkin. He came immediately to spray. He demonstrated great concern for me and my home, and I appreciate him greatly.
ScorpionsMy family & I recently moved into a home that had scorpions. I am terrified of them & couldn't sleep for days worried that I was going to get stung by one. I urged my husband to call Orkin (had used them in the past & was extremely happy with them) to come & take care of the scorpion problem. They were very professional & courteous. They suggested what we needed to do on our part and they did their part. I am one happy wife/mother! They provide service every other month and so far, we have not seen a scorpion. I highly recommend their services. They are wonderful and friendly.
