Tiny Termite House

Out of sight doesn’t always mean out of mind, especially when it comes to termites. The groundbreaking research study conducted by the National Pest Management Association illustrates how much damage termites can leave in their wake if left unchecked. Check out this video for more on the ‘Tiny House’ Project that highlights how quickly these voracious eaters can destroy homes from the inside out. Source: NPMA

The Orkin Process

The A.I.M. Process: How We Help Get Rid of Termites


    An Orkin Specialist will perform a thorough examination of you home by checking your basement or crawlspace for moisture, your foundation for wood debris, and other risk areas that may attract an infestation. Orkin utilizes state-of-the-art equipment such as IR thermometers, moisture meters, and termite detection systems to help him scientifically assess your home. When we are done, you will receive our recommendation, complete with customized digital diagrams and an Orkin Inspection Report outlining problems we identified, as well as recommended plan to protect your home from termites.

What our customers have to say

The technicians were personable, knowledgeable, and not only willing to accommodate my need to keep indoor only cats confined, they went out of their way to insure the cats were safe. Top that off with the neat way they filled all the visible holes that had to be made in drywall. After the Harvey flood, they were pro-active in contacting me about redoing the outside barrier, and got it done earlier than I might have expected. All in all, I couldn't be more pleased with the service and the product. High five, guys!!!

We’re not happy until you’re happy.
