Florida

We want to let you know how pleased we are with the Hallandale service manager. He has been so helpful with our termite situation. Every time we speak, he acts on it and is very reassuring. You have an excellent manager, and we want you to know how well run the termite department is.

He sent two Orkin Men, and they were outstanding. They knew just where to attack the problem and were clean, neat and so helpful to us. Thank you for hiring such competent people. It sure helps, and that is why we have been customers with Orkin since 1961.

~ Broward, Fla.

 

This letter is to commend The Orkin Man for a job well done. He is very pleasant and does a thorough job.

~ Central Fla.

 

The Orkin Man is always courteous, extremely punctual and takes pride in his work, which is very refreshing. He is excellent, thorough and always on time for scheduled appointments.

~ Clearwater, Fla.

 

We would like to take this opportunity to put on record that for the many years Orkin has done our pest control, we have been very happy. Our restaurant is totally pest free and this is mainly because of the expertise of The Orkin Man. Not only is he a professional, but his attitude and pleasant manner are a delight.

~ Clearwater, Fla.

 

We called Orkin and spoke with The Orkin Man. Due to the efforts of this individual, we received our usual outstanding service response to our tenant’s needs. Such individuals are a credit to a service-oriented industry and are the bottom-line reason we are an Orkin customer.

~ Clearwater, Fla.

 

My experience with Orkin is pleasant. This is mainly because The Orkin Man is so efficient. He routinely calls prior to arriving for his monthly servicing. I must say, few service people with whom I have dealt even bother to call first, much less get here when promised.

Also, a termite inspector was by and missed me. He called again to try and catch me at home. Then, he discovered that we had no problem with termites. He didn’t try to sell me a bill of goods but explained honestly what the drywood termites next to the house could mean. He did not try to have me spend a lot of money needlessly.

You may feel such service is a standard thing, but I most definitely assure you, it is not.

~ Clearwater, Fla.

 

The Orkin Man is a gentleman and mannerly to a degree not often witnessed these days.

~ Clearwater, Fla.

 

Thank you for the 13 years of service when I lived in Clearwater. It was always satisfactory. As soon as I arrive and settle in Charleston, you may rest assured that I’ll continue with Orkin service.

~ Clearwater, Fla.

 

We are very pleased with the thoroughness of the service received from The Orkin Man. His effectiveness was emphasized recently when we had air conditioning installed. The installer found many dead insects in the attic, proof of his success.

~ Clearwater, Fla.

 

I wish to compliment The Orkin Man. His courteous and prompt service, together with his personal interest in solving our pest control problems, has made me happy that I do business with Orkin.

~ Clearwater, Fla.

 

Because of unavoidable conditions, The Orkin Man had to make three tries before we could have him in. The first two times it was raining, and he was soaked. Nevertheless, he was polite, patient, businesslike at work and most thorough. One meets so much indifference and inadequacy nowadays that the opposite deserves notice.

~ Cocoa, Fla.

 

The excellent service I received from The Orkin Man simply cannot be overlooked or ignored. This young man takes a personal interest and pride in his work. This is a rare thing these days. My school and my home are serviced like never before since he started this route. It is more important to keep the customers you have satisfied than to send a good route man out to sell. He is a good salesman, also, but a lot of people can sell. Very few are conscientious about service work and show the interest and pride in accomplishment that this young man does.

~ Cocoa, Fla.

 

It’s so nice knowing there are no insects skittering about.

~ Cocoa, Fla.

 

Now we have a moisture-proof and termite-free home and made two very dear and honest friends.

~ Cocoa, Fla.

 

We want to express our appreciation to The Orkin Man who has serviced our home these past few months. We do hope he will continue to be in charge of this area. He is one of the best—keep him happy, as he is a fine person and knows how to treat his customers.

~ Cocoa, Fla.  

 

The Orkin Man is always courteous—even during the times when I give him reason to be irritated. He is a super individual, and we appreciate the efforts he makes on our behalf. He is the reason we are still with Orkin!

~ Cocoa, Fla.

 

Last week I did a very silly thing. I called The Orkin Man for service when, in fact, I am not one of your customers. You were, however, kind enough to respond. The problem: I was shaken after seeing a rat crawl out of my bedroom. For regular monthly service, I use another exterminator. When I saw the rat, my mind automatically reacted to ‘Orkin!’ The power of advertising, I guess. Anyhow, thanks a lot, and if I ever become dissatisfied with my present service, I’ll take Orkin on permanently.

~ Coral Gables, Fla.

 

We are truly amazed at the vast difference The Orkin Man’s work meant for our house—no more surprise guests in the middle of the night! Please convey our gratitude for his excellent workmanship, attitude and concern for his clients.

~ Davie, Fla.

 

I appreciated The Orkin Man’s help. My late husband always attended to these matters. I now have a much better understanding of the services Orkin provides in protecting my home.

~ Daytona Beach, Fla.

 

The Orkin Man is efficient, conscientious and always does a thorough job. As long as he is our Orkin Man, we will be happy customers.

~ Daytona Beach, Fla.

 

The Orkin Man took such an interest in his job. He was very well-mannered, as well as respectful to our home.

~ Daytona Beach, Fla.

 

Congratulations on having an employee like The Orkin Man. It’s Sunday night, and he’s due here tomorrow. He just called to see how we are doing with our rat problem and to see if he should bring anything extra along.

~ Delray Beach, Fla.

 

We just had the most thorough annual inspection ever. The crawlspace, attic, outside and inside were all a first-class job. Our regular Orkin Man is knowledgeable, prompt and friendly, too. Orkin, you’re in great shape as far as we’re concerned.

~ Delray Beach, Fla.

 

The Orkin Man is trim and neat in his uniform but within minutes may don a jumpsuit, grab a flashlight and be on his way to remote nooks and crannies in attics and crawl spaces.

~ Delray, Beach, Fla.

 

I want to commend The Orkin Man on his recent yearly termite inspection of my home. He found termites in my bathroom and immediately addressed the matter. He did a fine job with application. I would also like to commend another Orkin Man, who’s inspected my home monthly for the past 10 years, for his excellent work. Your men are not only good workers, but also fine gentlemen.

~ Delray Beach, Fla.

 

We were given rapid service, completely informed, and in every way made to feel that the job was being done right.

~ Delray Beach, Fla.

 

We always found The Orkin Man to be a pleasant, sincere, methodical worker; however, facing an ant problem, he impressed us tremendously with his ability to handle it. Not only was he sympathetic to our concern, he maintained a cooperative, pleasant manner and a determination to be successful—which he was!

~ Delray Beach,

 

As an Orkin customer, we had a problem. The Orkin Man came, knew his business, was very patient, knowledgeable and solved our problems.

~ Delray Beach, Fla.

 

The Orkin Man is highly professional, competent and provides prompt service. He’s also pleasant and friendly. What a fine ambassador for Orkin!

~ Delray Beach, Fla.

 

I couldn't think of a nicer Christmas gift to give my exterminator than to write and tell you what a wonderful job he is doing. He is always cheerful and friendly and always asks if I had any special problems during the month. Thank you for excellent service all year and Merry Christmas.

~ Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.

 

The Orkin Man gave my home a thorough inspection. He checked every baseboard, doorframe, attic and plumbing area. He demonstrated a high level of professionalism and expertise in his work. All in all, I now have the peace of mind that my house is professionally treated for termites.

~ Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.

 

The Orkin Man is efficient and courteous.

The Orkin Man is pleasant in dealing with his customers.

I would like to tell you how much we like our Orkin Man. He does the best job of any we’ve ever had. He did such a super job that I’m finally rid of my crazy ants. He even took off the wall plugs in the kitchen and sprayed behind them.

~ Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.

 

Please allow me to pay one of your employees a compliment. The Orkin Man and his crew did the best job I have ever experienced. I am a customer who will complain and give compliments when each is deserved.

~ Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.

 

The Orkin Man is excellent about calling to set up appointments. He’s always on time or early. He is extremely courteous and professional and always goes the extra mile to provide service. He listens to our problems and is knowledgeable about his job. We’re very pleased.

~ Ft. Myers, Fla.

 

I write you to commend the caliber of service provided by The Orkin Man. We also appreciate his knowledge of our problem, his courteousness and his promptness. He represents Orkin well.

~ Ft. Myers, Fla.

 

The Orkin Man is a pleasant, even charming representative. He upheld the response and service for which Orkin is known.

~ Ft. Myers, Fla.

 

The Orkin Man is a very personable and high-quality person. He did an excellent job.

~ Ft. Myers, Fla.

 

The Orkin Man was exemplary in his demeanor, ability and knowledge. He won our confidence from the very beginning. He provided us a precise explanation of the service, showing his expertise. You should be proud of him and his work.

~ Ft. Myers, Fla.

 

The Orkin Man was at a termite job yesterday when the lady of the house, who is sickly, fell in the driveway. He was the first one to her and kept her still until the ambulance arrived. The husband, who was at the back of the house when it happened, called and thanked Orkin and told us how much help he had been—called him an angel. Fortunately, the lady had no broken bones as a result of her fall.

~ Ft. Myers, Fla.

 

After observing The Orkin Man fumigate yesterday, it is obvious that he takes pride in his work and is a dedicated Orkin employee.

~ Ft. Myers, Fla.

 

I am very pleased with Orkin’s service. Special thanks to The Orkin Men who helped get rid of the million carpenter ants in my attic.

~ Ft. Myers, Fla.

 

Our current Orkin Man has worked with us for the last several months and is the absolute best. We have not seen a single bug! It would be great if he could continue with us at our new home. Keep up the good work.

~ Ft. Myers, Fla.

 

I’ve had the same Orkin Man for a few years. He is the most helpful, prompt and conscientious that I’ve ever had. Thank you.

~ Ft. Myers, Fla.

 

No roaches since your service. Thank you!

~ Ft. Myers, Fla.

 

Service is excellent. We highly recommend Orkin.

~ Ft. Myers, Fla.

 

Thank you for taking care of the problems in my home and for sending one of the nicest ladies ever to walk through my door.

~ Ft. Myers, Fla.

 

The Orkin Man is very personable and doesn’t mind taking extra time to answer my questions. I also appreciate his willingness to work with our scheduling issues. He is definitely an asset to Orkin!

~ Ft. Myers, Fla.

 

I wish to comment on the very thorough check-up my house got from The Orkin Man. It was the most painstaking that I observed, and he was also pleasant and interested in the job. He did find evidence of drywood termite damage in one bedroom, but found no sign of living organisms.

~ Ft. Myers, Fla.

 

The Orkin Man was very thorough. He is a gem, and the best representative of your company.

~ Ft. Myers, Fla.

 

We would like to commend the thorough and industrious work performed by The Orkin Man. We will state without reservation that he has the interests of the company and the customer in mind when performing his excellent work. We can trust him to do a thorough job unsupervised.

~ Ft. Myers, Fla.

 

The Orkin Men took the time to answer all of our questions. They did their job well, and we were very impressed with both.

~ Ft. Myers, Fla.

 

We would like to call to your attention to the excellent service received during our recent outbreak of mites. At all times, The Orkin Man and office staff never refused to come to our aid. It is nice to know that even with a very busy schedule, they are always willing to try and solve our most difficult problems.

~ Ft. Pierce, Fla.

 

The Orkin Man is one of the most efficient, professional workers I have ever observed. More important is his sincere, caring attitude and concern that the customer is pleased with Orkin’s service.

~ Gainesville, Fla.

 

This is one service where I think I get my money’s worth. You have a fine bunch of men in your Gainesville office.

~ Gainesville, Fla.

 

The Orkin Man is an asset to your company. Working with two of these gentlemen was a pleasure for our family.

~ Gainesville, Fla.

 

The Orkin Man is a true gentleman and a conscientious worker. He is always prompt, gracious, efficient, thorough and eager to please.

~ Hallandale, Fla.

 

The Orkin Man personally resolved my issue and was courteous and helpful. He is a credit to the Orkin name.

~ Hallandale, Fla.

 

Our Orkin Man has been with us for 15+ years, providing service to my parents in their Miami home. He is much more than ‘the bug man’ to us. He’s supportive and a very close friend. We lost my father 18 months ago, and mother passed away in May. He offered his condolences and strength to our family during this very difficult time. Yet, his actions remained nothing short of professional. Orkin is very lucky to have him as a representative.

~ Hallandale, Fla.

 

Because of The Orkin Man’s patient, caring and courteous manner, your company has become our pest control provider of choice. I will certainly do all I can to spread the word to potential customers about our trust and confidence in your integrity.

~ Hallandale, Fla.

 

The Orkin Man is highly motivated, courteous and trustworthy, does an excellent job and is the best pest control technician I’ve ever had in my home.

~ Hallandale, Fla.

 

Not only is The Orkin Man prompt, courteous and businesslike, he is also friendly and concerned about whatever problem I may have. He leaves me feeling confident. Keep up the good work!

~ Homestead, Fla.

 

We are very happy with our Orkin Man. He is prompt, courteous, dependable and conscientious.

~ Homestead, Fla.

 

A year ago I seriously considered dropping the Orkin service, but since my current Orkin Man began, I am quite satisfied. He even makes sure my dogs have plenty of water.

~ Hudson, Fla.

 

I want to compliment The Orkin Man for his competent and professional manner when servicing my home. I’m rather neurotic about seeing bugs in my house. He doesn’t mind answering all of my questions. It’s a pleasure to have him working for me.

~ Hudson, Fla.

 

The day The Orkin Men serviced under the house for subterranean termites was probably the hottest day of the year. Not a breath of air, and the thermometer read 98 degrees in the shade. There is only a small crawlspace under the house. In spite of the heat, the crew burrowed under the house. It was a terrible, hot, dirty job, complicated by broken glass. They worked mercilessly and stayed with it until the job was done and done right! They emerged from their subterranean explorations looking like coal-miners, but refused to come into the house to get cleaned up for fear of dirtying it. I brought them soap and towels, and they used the hose outside. During the whole operation, not once did I hear a cuss word, and heaven only knows they had provocation.

A few days after the job was done, an Orkin representative came by the house to make sure we were happy with the work. We did not feel that simply telling him about the outstanding work and dedication of the crew was sufficient, hence this letter. We live in what is perhaps the worst termite-infested area in the USA. Thanks to Orkin, we can stop worrying. Will we recommend Orkin to our friends and neighbors? You bet we will!

~ Hudson, Fla.

 

The Orkin Man assisted my neighbors and me with a wood ant infestation. My wife was ill when he came to spray our apartment. He knocked and entered after receiving no response. After discovering my wife, he offered to call for medical attention (since he thought she was there alone). I am grateful for his sincere concern.

~Jacksonville, Fla.

 

The Orkin Man traced the address book to my parents in Mississippi, called them to verify and then mailed it to me. I was so impressed that someone would do this for a total stranger and refuse to accept a reward of any kind. I want to let you know what a good representative this man is for Orkin.

~ Jacksonville, Fla.

 

We wanted to express our deep appreciation for Orkin’s tremendous efforts with removing our furry little friends. To date, we have not a peep! We are so happy! We are very grateful for The Orkin Man.

~Jacksonville, Fla.

 

Please allow me to congratulate you on having employees the caliber of The Orkin Man. He is certainly one of the most accommodating young men I have known. I had car trouble, and he not only stopped and helped me get the car started, but also located and pointed out the cause of my trouble. I appreciate so much meeting him and his kindness to an elderly man. I certainly want you to know the kind of person that’s representing you in this area.

~ Kissimmee, Fla.

 

Before the realty company switched to Orkin, we heard nothing but complaints about the pest control service. They day Orkin arrived to do the first few buildings, many residents called to thank us. Our thanks go to The Orkin Man for being such a professional and courteous salesman.

~ Lake Mary, Fla.

 

The Orkin Man works very efficiently, is sincere and is dedicated to his job. It is a pleasure to have him service our home. He has a great personality and is truly a complement to Orkin.

~ Lake Mary, Fla.

 

I am very pleased with the service of The Orkin Man. He was just so nice to me and wanted me to be happy.

~ Leesburg, Fla.

 

I recommended your company very highly to the operators of the mobile home park across the highway from us. I think we are some of your most pleased customers and recommend you to everyone. We thank you for the wonderful service provided at our house. We only wish we had started 10 years ago.

~ Leesburg, Fla.

 

Recently, we ran into a problem with termite damage to our home after treatment by Orkin. For whatever reason, the termites continued to do damage. Our claim was handled by The Orkin Man in a very professional manner. He was extremely sympathetic to our problem and did a wonderful job resolving the problem. For this, he earned our continued business at not only our home but other properties we own.

~ Lighthouse Point, Fla.

 

We recently moved from Fairfax, Va., where we were Orkin customers for 10 years. We appreciate the excellent, completely outstanding service rendered by The Orkin Man at our new home in Florida.

~ Longwood, Fla.

 

I would like to express my appreciation for the fine job The Orkin Man did in the food service department of Stone School. He was most helpful and concentrated on the trouble spots I pointed out as well as all of the general areas. I want you to know how pleased we are.

~ Melbourne, Fla.

 

I want to recognize one of your Orkin Men who has done an outstanding job for our Sunny Isles Beach business. Every time I see him, he has a smile and is willing to do whatever is asked. We recently had a problem, and even though just here, he returned immediately and took care of it. You should feel proud to have an employee like this, and at the same time, we are proud to have a company like Orkin servicing our account.

~Miami, Fla.

 

I am very pleased with your company. The Orkin Man is always courteous, pleasant, efficient and ensures proper service. I feel that I made the right choice of pest control companies because of his personal and sincere attention.

~ Miami, Fla.

 

The Orkin Man is always prompt, friendly, efficient and extremely professional.

~ Miami, Fla.

 

I can truthfully say that I have never met a more hard-working or nicer man.

~ Miami, Fla.

 

I would like to compliment The Orkin Man’s competent, prompt and courteous manner.

~ Miami, Fla.

 

All work—no fooling around. All business, but very kind and very painstaking worker.

~ Miami, Fla.

 

On Oct. 10, The Orkin Man treated fleas in our apartment in Miami Beach. He found a serious infestation in the apartment and sprayed accordingly. The following day we experienced fleas, again. I phoned Orkin and he promptly returned my call, set up an appointment, and very effectively took care of the problem. So far, we have not experienced any more fleas. In this time of hurry-up work and rip-offs, I would like to commend The Orkin Man for the excellent quality of service provided. You are fortunate to have an employee of this caliber. The impression made has turned me into an Orkin customer forever. This kind of goodwill and good service is worth more than all the millions that companies spend on advertising. When anyone asks me for an exterminating company, you can be sure I’ll recommend Orkin.

~ Miami, Fla.

 

The manner in which The Orkin Man converted a potentially disgruntled customer into a satisfied one speaks highly of his professionalism and concern. I look forward to my continued association with Orkin.

~ Miami, Fla.

 

Thank you for your service. It’s a pleasure to deal with a reputable firm like Orkin.

~ Miami, Fla.

 

The Orkin Man came to our house by appointment for a termite inspection, as did representatives of other firms we called.

We would like to say that, without a doubt, he is a conscientious and dedicated employee. He did a thorough inspection of the house, which other firms failed to do. He was extremely courteous and answered our many questions.

The purpose of this letter is to say that very seldom is praise given to those who earn it. Criticism is quick. We feel with Orkin, The Orkin Man and your guarantee, we have the best.

Thank you for sending a perfect gentleman as your representative.

~ Miami, Fla.

 

The Orkin Man provided valuable assistance to the residents in my development after the hurricane. Orkin's willingness to cover our roofs with plastic for a minimal fee was very much appreciated. It helped many of us take control of our lives again. Thank you.

~Miami, Fla.

 

I must relate my total satisfaction with the professional ethics, response, service and attitude your company rendered my hotel over the past several months. The Orkin Man was instrumental in ensuring that the hotel was properly serviced and a good relationship maintained. The ‘never say die’ attitude brought about all the solutions needed to conquer the problems that existed.

~ Miami, Fla.

 

Your Miami office is very efficient, and I thought you’d like to know.

~ Miami, Fla.

 

We appreciate the fine, dependable service rendered to us by your company.

~ Miami, Fla.

 

Thank you so much for your attention and the concern shown for our bug problem. You really went out of the way to help us.

~ Miami, Fla.

 

The staff of the Hallandale, Fla., Orkin branch is the most well-mannered, accommodating, courteous group of people I have met in a long, long time. I had a severe ant problem that would not go away. Whenever I called, Orkin came immediately, no matter the time of day. The Orkin Man came out two or three times a day until the matter was corrected. I can’t emphasize enough the trust and faith I have in Orkin.

~ Miami, Fla.

 

I wish to commend The Orkin Man, who, it seems to me, performs his function ‘above and beyond the call of duty.’ I think he is a fine representative of Orkin.

~ Orlando, Fla.

 

The Orkin Man has been friendly, helpful and considerate of our schedule right from the start. We know to expect him on the same day every month. Sometimes he has to let himself in and spray the house. We have not seen a bug in our house in two years. The $1.00 increase a month is okay with us.

~ Orlando, Fla.

 

The Orkin Man came to our home and, in a most professional manner, laid out very clearly a plan for pest control in our home and yard.

~ Orlando, Fla.

 

The Orkin Man is to be commended for his efficiency.

~ Orlando, Fla.

 

The sales and service staff were very cooperative and did everything to assure me that Orkin would take care of our problem. The Orkin Men were very polite and courteous and very particular about performing their job. If the occasion should occur, I would recommend them all.

~ Orlando, Fla.

 

The Orkin Man is pleasant and understanding when scheduling and performing our service. He keeps his appointments, is punctual and considerate enough to call ahead if delayed. He does not hesitate to perform above and beyond the regular schedule. We really appreciate the level of concern for his customers and the Orkin name.

~ Orlando, Fla.

 

We greatly appreciated your servicing the house a day early so things could be put away prior to the hurricane. Please extend our thanks to The Orkin Man. It was after business hours, and he took his own time to complete the work. It is certainly nice to have a courteous and cooperative organization like yours to do business with.

~ Panama City, Fla.

 

Thank you for truly outstanding service while we lived in Panama City. After Orkin began, we never saw another pest in the house. We will continue to have Orkin service the property.

~ Panama City, Fla.

 

I want to take this opportunity to compliment The Orkin Man. He was most courteous and very efficient when at my home to arrange for the renewal of my five-year drywall termite insurance. An employee of his caliber is surely an asset to Orkin.

~Pompano Beach, Fla.


You have a very fine Orkin Man. I really appreciate the good service rendered and doing business with Orkin.

~ Pompano Beach, Fla.

 

The Orkin Man provided outstanding service and proved himself skilled, thorough and dedicated. He undertook a job that was somewhat dangerous and stayed with it until successfully completed.

~ Pompano Beach, Fla.

 

Hats off to The Orkin Man for doing an outstanding job! We appreciate his superb service. It’s a pleasure to have him in our home.

~ Pompano Beach, Fla.

 

The Orkin Man arrived in torrential rain to perform his inspection. I plan to use this situation as a demonstration for my students that even large firms like Orkin have people who care about their work and their customers.

~ Pompano Beach, Fla.

 

The Orkin Man explained the exterminating procedure and was patient and helpful. We appreciated his advice and availability to answer any questions in the future.

~ Pompano Beach, Fla.


Last month I wrote about a problem. You must have called the Orkin Army. The entrance criteria for membership in that army must be stiff, because they are excellent people. Not only are they friendly and intelligent, but they obviously like their work and care about their customers. Besides that, these people are extremely efficient. You have a great company. I can’t say enough about The Orkin Man.

~ Sarasota, Fla.

 

When The Orkin Man arrived, he found my husband on the floor (unable to get up). He then got help, and they were able to move my husband into a chair. I’d like to thank him for his kindness to my husband.

~ Sarasota, Fla.

 

I want to take a minute and thank The Orkin Man for a most successful and knowledgeable talk, which he presented to my class. He had the complete attention of this group, and they listened closely to his remarks concerning the important subject of ‘Sanitation and Pest Control.’

~ St. Petersburg, Fla.

 

On July 4, The Orkin Man was here to fumigate our flour silo. He presented himself as a professional and very competent representative of your company. I am pleased with the work completed and will call him again when the need arises. Just wanted to let you know the type of people you have.

~ St. Petersburg, Fla.


We’ve been Orkin customers for many years and had several courteous and conscientious Orkin Men to service our home. Our present one is tops! After a recent invasion of fleas, he kept after the problem until it was solved. He has a pleasant personality and is an efficient worker. Thank you.

~ St. Petersburg, Fla.

 

He is super. The Orkin Man is always on time, always courteous and most efficient.

~ Tallahassee, Fla.

 

I want to let you know how impressed I am with my new Orkin Man. He is very conscientious and also has such a pleasant personality. Thanks for letting him service my home.

~ Tallahassee, Fla.

 

The Orkin Man came to my aid at a time when, due to my husband’s sudden death, I had to sell my home and found my Orkin service canceled I called to explain my situation, and he was there that day. He would personally hand-carry necessary papers to parties needing them and saw to every detail necessary for the quick sale. He came with a smile, spoke softly and showed concern. Without his kindness and knowledge, I would have had many more problems and trips to make.

~ Tallahassee, Fla.

 

I would like to compliment The Orkin Man on the fine job at my residence. He is dependable, courteous and always professional. Because of people like him, I continue to do business with Orkin. I commend you on your excellence in personnel.

~ Tampa, Fla.

 

I have had pest control service for a long time and always thought one company as good as another. If the whole Tampa branch is as sharp as my Orkin Man, I am really impressed! He does the job right!

~ Tampa, Fla.

 

Unlike many customers who never express their gratitude, I am writing now to inform you how pleased I am with the services of The Orkin Man. He provides services above and beyond those that I would normally expect. He is always prompt and courteous and stays on top of my termite problem with a high degree of professionalism.

~ Tampa, Fla.

 

I would like to take this opportunity to express my opinion about The Orkin Man who is extremely polite, sincere and exercises above-average knowledge of the pest control profession. He is able to explain various pests and put forth valuable suggestions for controlling them in the future. It is really great to have a qualified professional take the time to make completely sure our company is pleased with its service.

~ Tampa, Fla.

 

We contracted with Orkin to rid us of all pests. The Orkin Man does a super job. Not only is he most cooperative, but a fine gentleman. He is a credit to Orkin.

~ Tampa, Fla.

 

The Orkin Man carried out a thorough and detailed inspection and confirmed that there were no termites. He went on to explain the real problem, which was minor. His knowledge of the area, the house construction and its possible problems surpassed that shown by the selling realtor and the agent’s home inspector.

The Orkin Man explained the extent of our bug problem, how it could be dealt with and the costs involved. I knew that I was dealing with trustworthy experts and signed the service contract without hesitation. Our monthly treatments are done by a different Orkin Man. He does an excellent job. We’ve not had any problems in four months of living here.

~ Tampa, Fla.

 

I can’t thank you enough for helping me with the worst infestation of roaches ever. The Orkin Man does a great job for the Bayshore Terrace area.

~ Tampa, Fla.

 

This is a beautiful Sunday afternoon on which one looks to the beach for recreation. Not so with The Orkin Man. He just finished doing more than an hour’s work of the tedious kind that is required to prepare a house for fumigation to rid it of termites. He volunteered to assist me in this task and agreed to come on Sunday afternoon so my house would be ready for Monday morning. He not only promised but kept his word. He was here promptly and worked expeditiously. He took time away from a family reunion to help me. My husband and I are extremely grateful to him, and I sincerely hope that he will be rewarded with more than my thanks for this display of initiative far beyond the usual call of duty. I can only hope that I shall find the remainder of your staff as satisfactory as The Orkin Man whose praises I cannot sing too highly.

~ Vero Beach, Fla.


My wife is always concerned with who she lets in the house and feels personally secure with The Orkin Man. He does a fine job and, just as important, is extremely courteous and thoughtful. To us, he is Orkin.

In an era where service is, in general, mediocre at best and impersonal at worst, The Orkin Man’s professionalism and good nature in an otherwise annoying situation were a pleasant surprise. Despite the fact he was not on call and had a prior engagement, he responded rapidly and successfully handled the issue.

We are more than satisfied with The Orkin Man’s service and care. He is the best to ever service our home. We have never had to call for special service from Orkin, because he covers all possible invasions.

When we require extra service, The Orkin Man promptly calls us to arrange a convenient time. He is also very thorough and takes the time to do the job right. One of your national competitors called to offer their monthly service for $10 less than Orkin. I can’t afford to take a chance and lose a good Orkin Man.

I have used Orkin Pest Control in my home for more than eight years. I write to tell you of my satisfaction, not only with your company, but with The Orkin Man. Since starting work full-time, there are occasions when I am not available. He goes out of his way to make sure my service is maintained. He is friendly, courteous and genuinely interested in my home and its problems.

I ran outside and yelled for help. The Orkin Man came running and saved my dog from drowning. I am seven months pregnant and could have gone into labor if I had tried (to save the dog) because it weighs 50 lbs. I am thankful he was at my home that day.

The Orkin Man’s obvious professionalism and good nature in an otherwise annoying situation was a pleasant surprise. He accomplished his mission efficiently and calmly.

I commend your company, especially The Orkin Man, for the very fine inspection.

Over the past four years, The Orkin Man provided superior technical service to our residence and has always gone beyond the required support to ensure all aspects of his technical responsibilities are achieved. He further demonstrated his customer service commitment this month while performing our scheduled maintenance. Upon entering our home, he detected an odor that appeared to be ‘burning rubber.’ He determined that the refrigerator, which was left running in our absence, was the source. He took the initiative to unplug the appliance, remove the ice trays and contacted me personally. In today’s environment of people not wanting to get involved, these actions reflect the high standards of customer service Orkin uses in the selection of their employees. Having known The Orkin Man over the past several years, I know this is not just one occasion and that he would have taken this action whoever the customer or whatever circumstances might have been.
