Ive worked at Terminex for seven years in Connecticut as a scanner for termites. I check bait tubes around peoples houses, the Service master motto is "to honor God in all we do".

Since March 1st of this year we have no supplies and my manager Kevin tells me just to go out and "make it look like im doing something"!

I hate stealing, cheating and robbing my customers but if I don't listen id lose my job. Do you think we honor God in all we do?

Very common practice 180 dollars for replacement monitors online,1 box of active bait at our branch 30 replacement caps for hundreds of customers,all they do is watch there p l maybe that's why Fallon left? He knew what goes on here they are all in on the scam! GOD HAS A PLACE FOR THEM HOPE THEY LIKE IT HOT!

I had a Terminix Salesman use the same "hard-sell" tactics on me. He was telling all kinds of scary stories about pest infestations in the area. And he was trying to pile-on all types of extra Terminix services, that I found out later were not true and not needed either.

I posted my story about their entire scam on www.consumeraffairs.com

You folks have hit the nail on the head about the continuous fraud that Terminix is perpetrating!

For more information; visit the "Terminix - Consumer Alert!" website at www.syix.com/emu

This site lists all of Terminix Customer Complaints, Employee Complaints, Lawsuits and Government Actions against Terminix.

Also BEWARE of TruGreen LawnCare, and American Home Shield, as they are both owned by the same company [ServiceMaster] as Terminix.

Speaking first hand as someone who worked a few months as a salesman for Terminix, you are right. Two comments that you made in your narrative are spot-on!

a] "These guys must be under a lot of pressure." Terminix employees have a weekly sales quota that they have to hit, or get wrote-up and lose their jobs!

and b] "....he was incompetant or a crook." Either this guy was new, or he was out-right lying just to hustle you for an upsell. You were very smart in getting the facts first, and then going with a local company that actually cares about having your business!!
