The humid subtropical climate of Newport News, VA, makes it an ideal breeding ground for a broad spectrum of insects. Flying pests from the wasp family disrupt outdoor gatherings in summer, stinging if they feel their nests are being threatened. Many of these pests are attracted to sweet foods and trash cans, making backyard barbecues a hot zone for potential strikes. Mosquitoes, which can transmit diseases like West Nile and Zika viruses, are also prevalent during warmer weather months.
Since winter temperatures can bottom out in the 30s, residents of Newport News have to contend with pests that are driven indoors by the colder weather. Mice will squeeze through small cracks and gaps along foundations and other entrance points and start living in attics or behind walls. Their search for something to eat inevitably leads them to kitchen cupboards, where they contaminate stored food with their saliva, droppings, and fur. In addition, all-weather pests like bed bugs are an ongoing problem. Riding into homes on luggage, clothing, and secondhand furniture, these bloodsuckers come out at night to feed on sleeping humans.
Last Thursday we had our regular inspection for termites. I, also, asked for a special inspection for spiders, having recently sustained what we think must have been a spider bite. We found the Orkin Man to be the most helpful Orkin employee encountered to-date and have been with you since 1973. He was neatly turned-out in your uniform and headgear. He knew what he was talking about and made us feel we are with the right company.
The Orkin Men were proud to be part of the Orkin/Rollins service. They put customer satisfaction first, and believe me we put them to the test. We have been with Orkin now for several years, mostly for our trust in your company and peace of mind for pest protection. A company is only as good as its people. Because of these two men, not only will we stay Orkin customers, but we have recommended your company to several friends.
