Orkin’s mosquito offerings help to provide added protection from mosquito-borne diseases, such as Zika, West Nile Virus, and Chikungunya. The mosquito service uses a combination of treatments that break the life cycle of the mosquito that prevents larvae from becoming adult mosquitoes that bite, breed, and carry the previously mentioned diseases. To start your service, your local Orkin technician does a thorough property inspection to locate the best places for mosquitoes to breed around your home and identify what type of mosquito is living on your property. After the assessment, the technician will prepare a treatment plan that is ideally suited for your home.

 

Pros

Customer Reviews

When choosing a mosquito control company, a significant factor to consider is whether or not your neighbors use and enjoy its services. To help your find the best providers for your needs, we read through Orkin customer reviews on ConsumerAffairs, Yelp, and HomeAdvisor to gather the main points from current and former customers. With Orkin being a total pest control company, it is hard to find reviews specifically for their mosquito control services.

There were a few customers that complained about the price of Orkin services and the lack of organization at their local branches. With franchise business models, however, this feedback can be expected.

Overall, Orkin is an excellent pest control company that consistently has tried and true processes to treat your specific pest problem. Most of their locations have rave reviews for knowledgeable technicians and friendly customer service representatives.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS RATING:

“This company are well educated on different types of bugs and insects. They do spread sufficient amount of spray and traps. I had terrible experiences with German cockroaches. This company gave me time to prepare my place before the actual process of their pesticide against these German cockroaches. They have reacted on a timely manner before these terrible pests multiply so quickly and spread the whole place.”
