Pests Covered

Terminix offers both residential and commercial pest control plans. Unlike some other pest control services that bundle everything into a single pricing plan, Terminix offers different plans for various infestations and situations. This can be a good or a bad thing, depending on your pest issues. If you are looking to cover every pest eventuality, this can be a more expensive way of going about it.

On the other hand, if you have a particular bug or pest problems, having a more specialized plan for a lower price can actually help you save money. Since this is the case in the majority of homes, Terminix is considered good value for your money. Some of the pests covered by the standard coverage plan include:

  • Clothes moths
  • Rats
  • Mice
  • Scorpions
  • Cockroaches
  • House ants
  • Silverfish
  • Spiders
  • Centipedes
  • Earwigs
  • House crickets
  • Millipedes
  • Paper wasps

Terminix also has a premium plan which covers more pernicious pests including:

  • Fleas
  • Ticks
  • Carpenter ants
  • Fire ants
  • Pharaoh ants
  • Tawny crazy ants
  • Black widow spiders
  • Brown recluse spiders
  • Bees (yellow jackets, hornets, wasps too)

Finally, Terminix has separate plans for termite control and bed bug removal. There is a commercial termite treatment plan for businesses that are experiencing infestations. Some commercial treatments available are Liquid, Tent, or Bait Defend Systems and coring techniques that install baiting stations around the concrete or asphalt perimeter of your business to thoroughly remove any termite problems.

Pricing

As mentioned previously, Terminix has several plans to choose from, so you get the coverage you need without having to pay extra for treatments that don’t apply to your issues. Terminix also has 300+ local branches. That means a technician will be at your home faster than most other services. Another thing that makes Terminix stand out is that it works in 47 of the states across the country. Considering most companies work with just a handful, this is a major benefit for Terminix customers.

Pricing plans will vary depending on the severity, specifications, and other factors of the infestation. You can choose from annual or single visit plans. Terminix also has a refer-a-friend program to help save money on your pest control treatments.

Guarantee

Terminix provides customers with a 30-day money-back guarantee. If you are not completely satisfied with the services provided by Terminix, you’ll get a free refund for the service and/or plan that you subscribed for.

Customer Service

Terminix is big on customer service. It strives to provide helpful and fast service to all its customers (and potential ones). You can reach out to customer support through the phone number: 1.844.687.3770. Terminix also has an online contact form that you can use to email a representative with any questions or complaints. What's nice about this service is that it is available 24/7, so if you need pest control help at any time of night or day, there’s someone there to field your call.

One other thing Terminix excels at is informing the public. There is a massive pest awareness library of resources on the site. It talks about all types of pests, what to look for, how they can affect your home, and what you could do about it on your own. It's a valuable resource for consumers.

Green Pest Control

Terminix doesn’t specifically use green pest control products. What the company does is implement the safest and most environmentally-friendly chemicals possible given the situation. Terminix also minimizes the amount of chemicals used and the proximity to people to ensure safety.

Testimonials

Customers seem to be very happy with Terminix services. Here are a few real user reviews based on their experiences:

“Great customer service! Just started using Terminix due to our plague of ants this year. Great rate to get started and excellent customer service from sales to technician! I’ve already passed the word on to my neighbors.” V. H.

“I'm a busy real estate agent.  The only company I recommend to my clients for pest issues is Terminix.  They have always been prompt, polite, and effective.  Every technician has been able to explain in simple terms what the issue is, how they will solve it and what to expect in the future. I hear only praises from my clients.” - Tom P.

“We had an issue with stink bugs coming in through a skylight.  The technician was on time, did a thorough job, and advised what to do if they returned prior to the warranty period. No bugs since then!  Great to work with if you need help!” - Diane C.

Bottom Line

Terminix is an industry-recognized leader in pest control. With nearly 100 years of quality service, these guys really know their stuff. Specialized plans mean you pay for the problems you’re experiencing and save on the ones you’re not. Plus, you can reach assistance at any time of day or night.
