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.
RatsRecently, we had a problem with rats in our attic. The Orkin Man showed us the utmost courtesy and compassion throughout this somewhat horrific process. His attention to detail made my husband and me feel that everything would be all right. His upbeat, positive attitude made it easier on us. It is very comforting to know that all we have to do is call our Orkin office, and he will be sent to us as soon as possible. It was, also, nice to know he would be able to pick-up right where he left off. If Orkin continues to hire and cultivate such Orkin Men, I can assure you we will always be loyal customers.
Insects and Spiders
AntsAnts cannot chew their food. They move their jaws sideways, like a scissor, to extract the juices from the food.
SpidersUrban legend says the average person eats eight spiders a year in their sleep. Is it Scientific Fact or Scientific Fake? Orkin reveals the truth behind this creepy-crawly claim. Continue reading

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?
FleasFlea Watch We think of fleas as being most active in the warm summer months, but they can survive in cooler conditions as well.
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.
TicksTicks Ticks are most active in the spring and summer. They’re most commonly found in the woods, our homes and other places their host might be.
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.
HornetsHornets These social insects are most aggressive during the late summer and fall, when their food sources drastically decrease and they’re forced to forage.
