  • "A few days later, I discussed with a friend about this pest solution situation and was advised by them to get a second opinion, especially with the large cost involvement. I contacted my realtor at Park Homes, Midland, MI, who recommended someone out of town for a subjective opinion... I called John Spencer, 989-777-0235, of Sherlock Homes Inspectors from Frankenmuth, MI to inspect my home and he found NO MICE DROPPINGS IN THE BASEMENT above ceiling tiles. He said the insulation was fine and it was obvious to him, somebody KICKED around the insulation making cold spots for us, because mice couldn't do that much insulation movement and destruction. I have photographs he took in a detailed report. The mouse droppings were found all around bait boxes. Tom, the Orkin representative, said our insulation was unine stained by mice and in bad shape. It is supposed to be WHITE AS SNOW but ours was grey. John, the home inspector said our insulation IS SUPPOSED TO BE GREY and it is fiberglass and much better than cellulose. Tom showed me the grey insualtion and rolled it into a ball, saying it shouldn't happen. John, on the other hand said fiberglass insulation is rollable into balls. Tom called our type of insulation ROCK WOOL, but John said they stopped making ROCK WOOL back in the 1950's....My home was built in 1997, and NOT... ROCK WOOL. Furthermore, John never heard of TAP insulation...and he never heard of sucking out attic insulation either... Orkin's bi-monthy inspections are really unnessary at this point because there are no pests, but most of all, I have personally lost confidence in their integrity, who they are as a company. Furthermore, there is so much fine print on their contracts. It says I could never obtain a lawyer, and all disputes would go thru their arbitration. They seem to have their contract loopholes all set in their favor. The bi-monthly inspections are not as thorough as the first time either. Orkin does not move furniture to get to spray wall baseboards either. I always have to provide a ladder for them. I was told they were not allowed to carry ladders on their truck. Clayton, is the bi-monthy guy, who calls before coming out. He is very nice. However, due to his BMI, and physical condition, he is unable to get into the attic... Tom, however, could maneuver about easily, being in better physical shape. I trusted Tom and felt he was professional at the time, non the less, even though he lied to me. The first spraying was done by another worker. He raced rapidly around the house, working very fast. He was almost breathless and seemed he was in a big hurry....but what he did worked. I'm really sorry I wasted money on a one year contract. I got on the internet and read some negative reviews for Orkin afterward. I was surprised what was reported by others. My advice is to always get a second opinion on large jobs. Read the internet reports on Orkin and decide for yourself what is your best alternative."
