      Mark ** was the inspector. He was so helpful and so nice. I would highly recommend him to anyone. He could not have been better. One day prior to his inspection, I had found a black snake in my patio storage room. He looked through my storage room and patio and outside my patio, searching for signs of the snake. He found no signs but was so diligent in his searching. I was so impressed with him. Thankfully, his inspection also did not reveal any signs of termites. Thank you again, Mark. You were super!

      This company are well educated on different types of bugs and insects. They do spread sufficient amount of spray and traps. I had terrible experiences with German cockroaches. This company gave me time to prepare my place before the actual process of their pesticide against these German cockroaches. They have reacted on a timely manner before these terrible pests multiply so quickly and spread the whole place.

      We live in Miami Florida, I called yesterday to set up a Termite Inspection and they gave me an appointment for today, The Female Inspector called me this morning to let us know she was on her way, and arrived to our house within our appointment time range... We were very satisfied with her knowledge and professionalism. Thank God, we don't have Termites, but we sign up to have them fumigate our yard every two months... I hope we can continue with a positive

      outcome in the future..Thank you Tania ** for a job well done..!

      Orkin treated bed bugs in my home. I paid them $2,100.00 for the whole home treatment (as they do not do a one room only treatment because they can’t guarantee the bed bugs will not run to other rooms. This costing more money in the long run). The Tech explained to me that I had the option of a one time treatment, which is only guaranteed for 30 days, or I had the option to add 1 year monthly follow ups, thus providing me a one year guarantee in case bed bugs ever return. Treatment was great and they followed up in 7 days to make sure bed bugs were gone and followed up Monthly after that. The Tech took the time to educate me about bed bugs and how easy it is for ANYONE (even myself) to come into my home and unknowingly have bed bug eggs or the adult bed bugs on their clothing, thus infesting my home again.

      I’m so glad I chose to have the monthly follow up inspections/treatment for a whole year because I had out of town company who actually brought bed bugs back into my home again. Orkin was great... they sent the Tech out to treat my home again and since then I’ve had not other problems. It is definitely worth the money to have a one year added guarantee.

      After all, it’s better to be proactive than reactive. My experience with Orkin was a great one and life saver. They never hesitated and sent the tech out right away to take care of the bed bug re-infestation problem. My experience has been WONDERFUL! And I will recommend Orkin to everyone. They stick by their word, are honest, and as a customer I can’t thank them enough! I rate them 5 stars (would rate them a 10 - but 10 is not available) as compared to any other pest control company. I will never use anyone other than Orkin for any of my pest control needs. Thank you Orkin for a job well done!

      So many bad reviews and I will tell you why. The main reason is people are either impatient or have no money. They took less than 5 minutes. Problem solved. I have seen a decrease in just 4 hours. I live in apartment so I pretty much need them to come back often. Signed the longest contract for the cheapest price. Cancel anytime if needed. No fees. I just resign up if I need it again! Thanks for getting rid of the problem.

      They call you 5 times per day to make you pay for the service in advance then when you need the service they are not available. I am talking about the service branch in Pikeville, KY. Stay away from these thieves.

      My apartment complex hired Orkin to come and inspect after I moved in back in 2012 and I like the guy, but he lacks professionalism as I've had to get my apartment sprayed for bed bugs in 2013 and recently he looks for fleas and told me I didnt have them. Guess what. I do and this is the second time I've had to hire someone to take care of my apartment. He hasnt sprayed the outside of my building in a couple of years and when he comes to inspect he is on his phone in/ out. I'm disappointed and may ask my apartment complex if I can refuse him as I've had to hire someone to come to my studio apartment to treat it and I have to remove myself and cat. So disappointed in Orkin. I do not recommend them at all.

      I have one mice, I called Orkin to get rid of the problem. Oh No. 1st time coming out the rep didn't even put a trap in the kitchen where it hangs out. Within that week I saw the mice again, someone different came out. Still didn't resolve the problem. My daughter seen it again, call Orkin to come out. This is the 3rd time.... still no results... I'm pissed now, I'm sitting on the couch. Guess who just come out? The mice. What the.... I'm done with this bogus company!!!

      Do not use them! Roto-Rooter recommended them and they were no good. They charged my credit card twice and did not fix my problem! Try someone else but leave Orkin alone. Check your bank and credit card statements. Stay away!

      When I called them about my mouse problem they came out and started a year contract with me. After about six months the infestation got so bad that I called and talked to the Skokie mgr. He sent someone else out and they suggested that I get my house treated with a steel wool like material that would be shoved between my shingles. They guaranteed that if I spent this 1000 and some change that this would get rid of the problem. On top of that I had this yearly contract with them which even offered me better protection. I went ahead and signed a electronic device, did not get a hard copy of what I was signing in till months later when I asked for it.

      Fast forward a year later still had the infestation the mgr came out because I was so upset to see a mouse in the bed of my grandbaby. The mgr finally told me that he could not do anymore and that there were places like my washer line that needed to be filled before he could get rid of the problem. Okay fair enough but couldn't you of told me this at the first inspection that you Guaranteed me no more mice problem, instead of insuring me that you have seen and gotten rid of worse. So after 50 a month and a thousand and some odd dollars the only thing that I got rid of was ORKIN. :( Also to make things worse do not sign up for auto pay. They take their money before the actual service. Honesty is the best policy something I feel you are not transparent about.
