    I had an appointment 7/28 with Terminx regarding mice from 1-3 and it is now 4:00 however the techician has not call to say anything. Just never showed up so, I called Terminx to check the status. I spoke with a representative who informed me that a supervisor would be calling me back to discuss this further and when he called all he could say was that he dont know what happen but he was going to try and contact the tech. This was a whole day waisted and the problem still not resolved. This service has given me a headache since I signed the contract. It nothing like they advertise. Don’t use this service it is terrible.

    I have an agreement with Terminex for termite control and quarterly pest treatments. Not only do they just show up unannounced – they do not show up at times at all when they say they are. Than they have the nerve to say they have a slip saying they were there and bill you. WOW – Also, they come out sit in their truck which I suppose has a tracker on it for 30 minutes leave a work order in your mail box that they treated and everything was okay and than they leave and bill you when they DID NOTHING. They are poor business people and the people in customer service suck. A manager never returns your call when you ask for one. Do not use this service THEY SUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    TERMINEX SOLD US ON A TERMITE EXPERMINATION WHICH COST APPROXIMATELY $1,500. A LITTLE OVER ONE YEAR WE FOUND OUT THROUGH VARIOUS RELIABLE SOURCES THAT WHAT WE HAD WERE ‘FUNGUS GNATS’ NOT TERMITES AT ALL. THE UNTRAINED TECHNICIAN HAD TOLD US THAT THESE INSECTS AT THE TIME WERE CALLED ‘TERMITE SWARMERS’ AND THEY ARE THE INSECTS THAT ‘LAY THE EGGS’ THAT RESULT IN THE SMALL, LONG-WINGED, LIGHT COLORED TERMITES. WHEN I BROUGHT THIS TO THE ATTENTION OF THEIR ‘RISK’ DEPARTMENT, I WAS MADE TO FEEL LIKE A ‘PERPETRATOR’ ON TRIAL. I WAS ASKED ‘WELL, WHY DID YOU LISTEN TO THE TECHNICIAN IN THE FIRST PLACE. FELLOW CONSUMERS, RUN FROM TERMINEX!!!!!

    I am free! Free of commercials that invade my room and disgust me?.

    That Terminex ad did it, the one with the worm crawling out of the sink/.

    I called my tv cable provider and cancelled cable! Then I went to the store and

    bought all the Frazier, Cheers and other sitcoms I enjoy, for $15 for a season’s

    episodes?. WITHOUT ADS! No more worms, no more crawly things, no more ads

    at all! We are so happy we broke the tv habit|. Yes, we now watch all of our favorite

    shows and movies, for free! Without Terminex ads!. Or any other ads?.

    So Terminex, you did it:. You are solely responsible for losing a couple of tv viewers

    permanently! Thank you! And now, please go out of business, you sicko’s!.

    I wish I could meet you personally and throw up on you.

    I had a year contract for quarterly visits.They called me up and asked if they could come out and do the service.

    Little did I know that the service period was up and now I am charged for that visit. After my call to them once I received the bill they told me I can cancel at any time. When asked why I was not told when they called to schedule an appointment that my contract was up. They said I should have known.

    They called on my cell phone while I was driving.

    Like any keeps the anniversary date to their exterminator in their car.Bottom line is POOR communication and not they are sticking me with the bill.

    Terminix is the most deceptive, incompetent and worthless pest service on the market. We have been triple-billed (under the guise of “pre-billing — the language used by their “customer service representative”) twice for the same service agreement. They have attempted to collect, not once, but three times for the same contact. Their billing department’s incompetence rivals that of a Chicago lone shark — only we would likely trust him more. Unfortunately, we did not do adequate homework before contracting this disreputable company. And when we did cancel the contract (after two months of trying to discover why they kept billing a contract that was paid in full for 12 months) we have been told (by a very rude and obnoxious billing / call center agent) that they don’t issue refunds. I would rather have my home destroyed by pests than to employ these incompetents again.

    same problem of not showing up for initial inspection, no calls, etc. Fortunately this caused me to loose confidence and I found this web site showing all the problems with the company. Obviously I won’t be doing business with them.

Rate this company
