Given the large population and hot, dry summers in Sacramento, CA, many species of pests are attracted to the area. For example, household ant infestations are common and annoy homeowners when they move indoors. They mostly infest homes looking for food and water and contaminate stores of syrup, honey, fruit juice, and meat in the process. Other insects like Indian mealmoths, sawtoothed grain beetles, warehouse beetles, red flour beetles, and cigarette beetles are also frequent contaminators of stored foods.
Parasites like mosquitoes and bed bugs are also found in Sacramento. Since the California city is home to several rivers and large wetlands, mosquito populations are especially active. These pests breed in standing water, and the females feed on blood. While feeding, they can transmit West Nile and Zika viruses to people. Bed bugs thrive in areas with abundant populations of humans where they can find a blood meal, which is their only food source. The pests are unknowingly brought into homes on secondhand furniture and by travelers who have stayed at infested hotels. Since they reproduce quickly, bed bug infestations can get out of hand if not addressed at the first sign. They feed on people as they sleep, which sometimes induces psychological trauma in their victims.
Recently, we had a problem with rats in our attic. The Orkin Man showed us the utmost courtesy and compassion throughout this somewhat horrific process. His attention to detail made my husband and me feel that everything would be all right. His upbeat, positive attitude made it easier on us. It is very comforting to know that all we have to do is call our Orkin office, and he will be sent to us as soon as possible. It was, also, nice to know he would be able to pick-up right where he left off. If Orkin continues to hire and cultivate such Orkin Men, I can assure you we will always be loyal customers.
Over the past three weeks, we’ve experienced a rat and mouse problem not previously seen. Due to nearby home construction, large numbers migrated into our neighborhood and found their way to our home. The Orkin Man spent considerable time and clearly explained their habits and appropriate eradication measures. He then set-up traps to ensnare a specific rat that had gotten into a bathroom wall and caught it within three hours. He located several entry points around the house, sealed them, and showed us how to set additional traps in the most advantageous locations. He, also, left us his phone number if additional support was needed. Between the information and materials provided, we have killed seven rats since last Saturday and believe we’re well on our way to solving the problem. He is a true professional and exemplifies the topmost standards in good customer relations.
I commend the Orkin Man for his professional manner and commitment to service and product. I look forward to a positive working relationship with Orkin and feel confident that our expectations will be met.
The Orkin Man treated our 57 unit apartment complex for 2 years. In all that time, we never once had any problems with the service received from him and continue to receive from him. He is without question a very strong asset to Orkin.
