After speaking with the gentleman on the phone for about an hour describing my issues and making an appointment I Made an appointment for a two hour window _ they never showed up when I called to ask about it after being relayed between a couple different people asking me the same questions, they argued with me about it saying that I had put in a "request" not an actual "appointment" apparently with a "request" you're supposed to sit there and hope somebody comes that day if you're lucky ... going someplace else

We have used Terninix since we moved into our home and am happy to say we are all but totally bug free. Sure we get a litlte bug now and then but I would be horrified if I ever saw a roach. For years we always had the same technician, which I really like. Lately it is a different one each time and I do not like that, but they always get the job done.

On our last inspection the service technician did a very in depth inspection. He also cleaned the eaves,and checked for wasp nest. Whe he entered the house he covered his shoes and then inspected the inside of the house. Very efficient and pleasant.
