Tucson Pest Pressure

The climate, elevation, and population of Tucson, AZ, contribute to its unique blend of pests. While surrounding cities in the arid, desert environment are largely untouched by wood-boring beetles, Tucson’s high elevation raises moisture levels in local trees, cut lumber, and existing homes. This attracts pests, such as powderpost and deathwatch beetles, which leave unsightly exit holes in houses and can weaken structural supports. Drywood and subterranean termites cause similar property damage, though their large colonies mean they can be even more destructive.

Pests that benefit from living near people, like rats and ants, are also common around growing Tucson neighborhoods. Roof rats are agile climbers that often live in attics, overhead garage storage, or vines on fences and home exteriors. The pests contaminate stored foods with their droppings, gnaw on wiring, and tear up insulation. Native to Arizona, southern fire ants and desert fire ants can cause problems when they nest in yards, flower beds, and wall voids. Walls near to bath traps, shower stalls, and hot water heaters are most at risk. These aggressive pests protect themselves with painful, venomous stings and bites.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Orkin is disorganized. Frank Enos called me on 9-29-15 to tell me that he would be coming to my house on 9-30-15. I reminded him that he had already called on 9-21-15 and I had told him on the 21st that Festus Kahn had already done my house on the REGULAR day which was 9-8-15. Festus showed me that you had rescheduled me in September for 9-22-15. Nobody from Orkin had told me about the new date and if Festus had not come on the REGULAR day, I would have been left wondering what happened. When Frank Enos called on 9-21-15, I told him Festus had already been here for September and we scheduled the October trip for the REGULAR DAY of 10-13-15. So I was surprised when he called on 9-29-15 and didn't even remember what we had decided the week before. I have found Orkin to be poorly organized and this is just the latest example. I am sorry Festus Kahn will not be the one coming on October 13 as he always called me the day before and did an excellent job.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Useless Service!! Hi ordered Orkin pest control to eliminate Scorpions and Spiders and other bugs. Since the time they have started spraying, there has been no change in either. My son almost got stung by a scorpion and the location i kept mentioning to the tech still keeps seeing scorpions. When talking to the tech, he says, i need to pay extra to prevent the scorpions from entering in. He also said that their spraying does not work against spiders. I'm now going to search for a different protection company

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Scheduling I receive a phone call from the exterminator when he is finished, what about the inside of the home? shouldn't you schedule before so I can be home.

The Orkin Man was very concerned about our cricket problem and took special efforts to schedule visits. He is conscientious, thoughtful, and kind.

I would like to comment on the professional manner in which Orkin Pest Control representatives conducted themselves in the service of 800 Model Cities units. We ran into some difficulties in the initial service (due to communication problems and lack of understanding on the part of tenants). But the Orkin Men were very understanding of the problems and many times went out of their way to service a unit. It was a pleasure to work with the professionals of Orkin.
