Memphis Pest Pressure
With its humid, temperate weather and proximity to the Mississippi River, Memphis, TN, regularly ranks among America’s top cities for mosquito problems. More than just backyard annoyances, these pests caused a local yellow fever epidemic in the 1800s and continue to raise health concerns today. Mosquito bites can transmit the Zika and West Nile viruses to humans, as well as spread heartworm to pets.
Memphis is also home to many wood-destroying pests, including termites, carpenter ants, and carpenter bees. Termites consume wood that touches the soil or wood that can be reached by their mud tubes, while carpenter ants create galleries inside timber to house their colonies. Over time, both pests can weaken wooden support beams in houses, threatening homeowners’ safety. In addition, carpenter bees create holes that have a negative effect on the appearance of wooden structures and can encourage the growth of wood-decaying fungi in homes.

Very lousy Custermer service
Shows up without calling, when I call the local number no one answers or returns call. Debit card was hacked and had to replace and when I tried to call to give them the new number, I got voice mail and no one returned my call until they wanted a payment there payment. I explained that I called four times and left two voicemails no one return my calls and then I was given the excuse that their voicemail service was broken and where going to replace it still the same issues. Did not run my debit card guy did not show up to do the service again and now I am my house is infested with lady bugs. I would not recommend them to anyone. They seem to run there Business like its a part time job.

Great Service- Depending on the tech
I have been using Orkin for over a year and our last tech, Mark, for the Humboldt TN area was beyond great. He always called and worked with my work schedule to be able to service the inside of the house. He was very thorough and educational. However, Alex, who is apparently our new tech is really making me doubt my decision to stay with Orkin. He didn't called for our last service. I have called customer service twice and he was supposed to call me back over the past 2-3 weeks. No phone call. It's upsetting that we are paying for service and aren't even able to get in touch with the tech. He might be new, but not even returning a phone call is obviously poor service. These ratings are based on our last service or lack there of.

I am very disappointed that for the weeks since my September service I have consistently been finding spiders and other bugs in my house. Not once since my first application has ORKIN entered my home to treat the inside of the house or the garage. Normally I am working when there is a scheduled visit, but in September I was home all day the house was treated and the technician never came to the door. If this is the service I can expect in the future I intend to cancel.

Last week I had an appointment from 9-11. No show no call. After numerous attempts to the branch I finally got a call back and a technician arrived around 2pm. He was knowledgeable and apologized that I had slipped through the cracks. I made another appointment for today from 11-1. We joked about them not being good from that 9-11 time. Needless to say no call no show and it's 3:30 in the afternoon. I've attempted to reach the branch and the inspector that came out. I've sent him a text message about no one making it to my house. No response. I've paid my requested deposit and still no priority service. I would never recommend this company. At a time of crisis when your home is no longer yours you expect top notch service especially from a nationally recognized company. At this point there is no excuse for not even receiving a phone call. Don't take business you don't have room to service. That's called greed. I would give NO STARS but the system makes you check a star to proceed.

We have been real happy with Orkin Pest Control services. They are very kind. When we were out of town a few years ago on vacation, we had a flea infestation at home. Our son called and he went over to let them in. They took care of it right away. We came home to a flea free home. How wonderful!

1. They had to come out to spray and then change our regular spray date.
2. When they spray for ants, we have to re spray for ants ourself.
3. We were told that someone would be out to recheck our dry zone and no one has been here.

Margininal at Best
Be great if I knew when they were coming. You send a notice each month telling me the Day the next service will be. Its at least 2 weeks after that date and sometimes has been after I call Orkin and ask the when my service will be.

I 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.
Thank you for coming and talking to us about the different kinds of insects. The pamphlets will be very helpful in our studies. Now we know more than we used to.
On a blistering afternoon, the Orkin Man stopped and changed a tire for us. Needless to say, nothing could have repaid his kindness and courtesy. I’m sure my sister returned to her home in Spain, as I did to mine in Ohio, impressed by the knowledge that Tennessee’s young men are still as gallant as we remember. Orkin is fortunate to have a representative of this caliber.
This letter is to inform you of the excellent service I received from the Orkin Man during the past three years. I understand his route is changing. He’s always been prompt, courteous, and very helpful in serving us. He became a trusted friend, and I want Orkin to know how pleased we were with his service. You will have to look long and hard to find a better representative for your company.
