Protecting more than just your home
Left untreated, termites can literally eat up the equity in your home. According to the National Pest Management Association, termites cost Americans more than $5 billion in damages each year. That’s more than fire and flooding combined. And their destruction knows no bounds because any home, regardless of its construction type, can offer the ideal combination of warmth, moisture, and food for a termite attack. Additionally, many homeowners’ insurance plans won’t cover any of the damage. Not having protection can lead to problems when selling a home, since many lending institutions require a termite bond before lending money to home buyers.

[ A.I.M. ]
If you have seen evidence of termites, The Orkin Man® will come and inspect your home. The Orkin Man® will perform a thorough examination of your home by checking your basement or crawlspace for moisture, your foundation for wood debris, and other risk areas that may attract an infestation. Your Orkin Man utilizes state-of-the-art equipment such as IR thermometers, moisture meters, and termite detection systems to help him scientifically assess your home. When he’s done, you will receive our recommendation, complete with customized digital diagrams and an Orkin Inspection Report outlining problems we identified, as well as a recommended plan to protect your home from termites.

Getting The Job Done
If The Orkin Man finds a termite infestation or the potential for one, he will discuss the best solution for your situation. Termidor® Liquid Treatment
- This solution works inside, outside, and within the foundation to provide a protective area around your home.
- The treatment offers immediate protection as well as protection from future infestations throughout the duration of the protection plan.
- We use application flowmeters to record the amount of termiticide used in each area and the cumulative total recommended after each treatment, to deliver the precise amount needed.
Dry Foam And OrkinFoam
- These solutions are used to treat voids and spaces in exterior and interior walls, under slabs, around pipes, and for certain surfaces.
- OrkinFoam treatments expand to reach critical areas, providing extra coverage and protection against termites.
- The ultralow moisture content in Orkin Dry Foam® helps prevent it from soaking through and damaging your drywall.
Sentricon® Bait and Monitoring
- Sentricon® targets at-risk locations around your home such as, old tree stumps, moist soil, irrigation sprinkler heads, roof downspouts and other moist areas.
- The bait present at bait stations disrupts the molting process termites require for growth — targeting the source of the problem.
- Sentricon® provides ongoing protection against future termite infestations without any drilling or damage to your landscape.
At the end of your service, he will fill out a Termite Control Service Ticket that outlines exactly what he did and when he’ll be back to check on your progress.

A Year-Round Solution
After your treatment, your Orkin Man will implement a Continuous Termite Protection Plan to monitor and help protect your home for any future signs of termite activity. Your plan will also include a Re-treatment Program. That way, in the unlikely event that termites invade your home following our visit, the Orkin Man will also return to battle the problem at no additional charge.
He will check for new pests while monitoring the status of previous treatments.
The Orkin Guarantee
We’re Not Satisfied Until You’re Satisfied.
If termites return to your home following a treatment, your Orkin Man will re-treat the problem at no additional charge. If you’re not completely satisfied with your termite program’s results, simply write to Orkin within 30 days of your initial treatment. If Orkin is unable to rectify the problem within 30 days of written notification, we guarantee to refund your initial treatment charge and any prepaid renewal.
We won’t let termites eat you out of house and home.
In addition to bugging you, termites pose serious risks to homes. Every year, termite infestations cost homeowners over five billion dollars in damages. When it comes to termites, “out of sight” shouldn’t mean “out of mind.” Even though signs of a termite infestation are difficult to spot, we know what to look for. Termites may run, but they can’t hide from your Orkin Man.

Our Orkin Men use the latest (and coolest) science and technology available to tackle your pest problems including moisture meters, telescoping cameras, heavy-duty vacuums, UV lights, and termite detection systems. These tools give your Orkin Man an advantage over other pest control companies — and pests.
Our people are the best in the business. We pride ourselves on providing all of our technicians with extensive training, led by our dedicated team of scientists.
