I've been dealing with Orkin for a long time, so they follow me from house to house. They're always very pleasant and they answer all my many questions. I'm satisfied with them.
Orkin does a good job. They come monthly and I like them as far as what they do for me. I had a lot of roaches before I started with them. They have taken care of that really well. Get Orkin. It's a good company.
All my experiences with Orkin have been outstanding. They come regularly about once a month and their representatives have always been phenomenal. Usually, when they do whatever they do, it remediates the problem. Sometimes not the first time, but it does. Whenever I need a service, I just call them and it's very easy to get through to an agent. Then, the response to my request is always within three days, sometimes much faster. I would tell my friends that they should hire Orkin.
Orkin Pest Control is always so responsive to anything to come out. They come right away if I call. Nathaniel has been my technician for the last year. He's amazing.
It's great with Orkin. I love these guys. We've been at the property 20 years now, and every guy that Orkin has hired has been unbelievable. They're personable.
Scheduling service with Orkin is very easy. The service is good and I don't think the cost is outrageous. Their technician is very pleasant. He seems to be very thorough in what he's doing.
The techs from Orkin schedule their own stuff. They have a period of time to do different things. They come out and spray the house inside and also do some stuff outside. We are in good shape with them. They're professional and fine people. They always go around in uniform and identify themselves when they’re coming ahead of time. Usually, when they get to the driveway, they'll call us to say they’re there. If I didn't like the cost and the quality of service, I’d quit, because it's been a long time.
I've been using Orkin for a year and a half and they have been very knowledgeable. They are ready to answer all my questions and very polite. They came out originally for ticks for the dogs, and for the scorpions. The technicians were very nice, very nice. They were very polite, attentive and knowledgeable. They were very good people.
Orkin Pest Control maintains the fact that we don't have any spiders or bugs that we had previously. And as long as that keeps going on, I'm gonna continue to use them. The techs were always great. When they needed to come inside during the height of COVID, they always wore masks and thick gloves. The gentleman that's my normal tech sent me an email, said that they were setting up a visit, asked me what time was the most convenient. He came almost exactly on time, said that he was in the process of doing the outside treatment, did it, and was as professional as he usually is. We were fortunate enough to get a good technician, and the services he provided were great. I would highly recommend Orkin if you have issues regarding pests or bugs.
I'm paranoid when I see bugs. They make me break out in hives so I like Orkin’s services. They are very thorough and they tell me when they would come in, which I like. They put it in my email two days or a week before then appointment. I like all of that because I need a lot of reminders. Also, they told me to call back if I have any problems and they will come. I'm very much satisfied with Orkin.
One thing I like about Orkin is that they come every three months and most of the time when they come, they're very prompt. With the internet now, they can tell you what time they're coming and when they're coming, which is a plus.
I've always had an excellent service with Orkin. They're always on time and they are dynamic company. I've only had one tech years ago who was kinda lazy sometimes but he did his job. I really like Orkin. I haven't even thought about using anyone else because they've made me have a beautiful, pest-free home.
Our experience with Orkin has always been great. There have been a couple of people through the years that have been extremely wonderful. The person that we have right now is fabulous. He goes above and beyond, so I'm really pleased with him. We live 1,800 miles away from that property that he does, and it's nice to have somebody who's willing. He first said something to me and asked me about something, and that was totally appropriate. I said, "Anytime you see anything, just let me know and I can get whoever I need to take care of it. I appreciate your eyes on things and noticing things.” It was something like lights had been left on. It was one of those sunny days when my cleaner was there and she had forgotten to turn the lights off. He said, “No problem. I’ll just turn them off.” He's amazing. He's done such a great job.
We have had an issue when we didn't have somebody coming in quite as regularly and doing things quite as thoroughly as this guy has been doing for two years now. Right before he took over, the girl was good, but she would forget to check this outside closet. This is a nice warm spot and packrats love it, and they chewed all the wiring, and it cost us several hundred dollars. Had she just checked it, we wouldn't have had that. The guy now was checking it every time and literally writing on the report, that he checked it. He also checks everything inside. He always goes through the back door and goes out, and then makes sure the door's locked.
I like the Orkin technicians. They've all been nice and we love our little fellow that comes now. The bugs seem to disappear and if they do come back, I can call Orkin and the tech will come and spray again. The service is not too terribly expensive and there's been no problem with scheduling. Other than that, I'm always concerned about the safety of my cat when they're spraying chemicals. So, I like it that the chemicals that are used doesn't harm my furniture floors or my pet.
My experience with Orkin has always been very thorough and proactive. We've had the service for years now. I have a regular tech that comes to my house. His name is Theodore and he's awesome. The service is automatically scheduled. But if I need something in-between, I can call and make a request.
We had Orkin come out for a special issue. We had a bad ant problem that we couldn't handle on our own. It took a while for the issue to dissipate. The gentleman that we have now is super friendly.
Was told no contract. Was asked to provide credit card information for the appointment and I would charged $220 the day of service. Was also told that 10-14 days after initial service that someone would come and look over everything and go from there what further treatment may be needed. I never got that. Was told I was infested w/ mice and roaches but no follow up ever came after I told the salesperson that came w/ the tech that I wasn't and wasn't going to spend $5000 that he said I would need to pay.
Instead I just got charged $90 for a contract that I was told I signed but I was told it was to run my cc for service; which I explained to a woman named Joyce and she said, "Well I am sorry we dropped the ball. We not sending someone back in that frame" that once again I had to explain that was supposed to be part of the $220 for the 15 min they were here; I even asked the tech if I booked it w/ him. He knows the office will be calling me which they never did.
According to Joyce I was charged $90 on Feb 1st and without even to my knowledge I am supposed to have someone come here and spray for mosquitoes in February and will be charged again another $90 on the 13th? After several times expressing the fact I had absolutely no knowledge of being in a contract much told there's no contract for me to worry about when I 1st made the appointment w/ a man named Bob who I originally spoke w/ and conversation should be recorded to. Please go listen to it. She said they are no longer allowed to listen to calls? I told her 3xs that I would be calling my bank to dispute these charges. I got absolutely no help from the lies and errors this company has managed to do with me.
We have a wonderful technician named Dylan that services our home once a month. He is very thorough, professional, and courteous. He always listens to us, and comes up with a solution when we relate any new issues regarding pest control.
Excellent service. Jerry does an excellent job!!! Thorough and professional follow thru. Spring spraying has been great for dealing with "flying" insects; as well as the deer ticks. This was a real problem as we have six or seven deer flop in our yard. Our grandchildren do enjoy the yard.
Orkin's techs would come out at least once a month. They sometimes take care of the inside of the house and sometimes they do the outside. They have been very good and thoughtful. They are competent, they do their job and don't waste time, and when they go, everything is fine. Getting Orkin's service is a good way to spend your money.
I am very happy with my service. I have asked for additional spraying from time to time and it's always accommodated. My technician is always pleasant and always asks if there are any problems. I wish I would have thought of this service years ago.
Orkin usually comes out every two months to spray the basement of our house. We have a technician by the name of John and he's very nice. We spend about six months down in Arizona. During that time, I have a friend that comes to my house and she gets ahold of John and lets him know. They work out the time when he can come. John has been very accommodating about working with my friend. When John gets done spraying and doing all that work, he always asks us to write something about how we like them. The only thing is it's very difficult to get ahold of Orkin's people and let them know what's going on or let them know that I really like John and I really appreciate Orkin.
We have an older condo and have pests and bugs. The pest activity is better when we take care of them. We just have to be careful to keep things sprayed. One time, Orkin talked about possibly having something up on top of the walls in the basement and that can possibly be removed then sprayed. That might take care of some of the pests.
Tech is always on time and very professional. I have no signs of bugs inside my home. Pricing is reasonable. Has to be reminded to close the gate. No signs of roaches or rodents. Never had to report any issues. Always give heads up before arriving.
Orkin comes out every other month and they go through the house and the garage. They spray to keep bugs and mice out. 30 years back, we had an issue with a technician who had a little bit of an arrogant attitude. But since then, they've been fantastic. The one we have now is wonderful and we don't have pest activities. Orkin does a great job. If we would have an issue, we just call them and they come out.
Orkin is always on time and provides an amazing service. I haven’t had pest issues for years and Orkin continues to keep them away. My technician, Mason, is professional and thorough. He explains what he did and what to expect following his treatment.
No complaints. Orkins alerts us 3 days prior to their visit and then the day before. We also receive a phone call telling us about what time he will arrive. When he first arrives, he asks if we have any on-going problems that we are aware of. When done, we receive a paper reviewing everything that he saw and took care of. Quite happy with the company.
From the people who answer the phone, to the technicians that come to my house, I've only had positive experiences. And their science works! I've had other companies before and they're ok but I don't know if I can trust their product or if it's toxic/too strong. Jorge and Jeanette have both been wonderful techs and they're like friends.
Pest control appointment went well. Technician was very thorough & answered all my questions. Been using Orkin for over a year or so. Have had no issues with their services. I find them quite reliable & if you have a problem they will return to solve it.
We appreciate Orkin’s dependability every service date. If they say they’ll be there, they will. If not, you are notified promptly. Orkin has a very friendly staff and they are knowledgeable about our situation and are ready to help. Thank you!
Orkin is dependable and our technicians have always been very good. We’ve had Victor for some time and he's very good at what he does. If he says he’s gonna be here at a certain time, he's here. Also, he rapidly took care of the issue we had been having and we never had another issue with it.
