I used to be a so-called “inspector” for Terminix.  That was the pleasant name for salesperson they used. I was one of the “Top Dogs” for awhile, my name was always on the top of the sales board.  That was until I started seeing the whole picture.  I was promising these people a rose garden that, I came to realize, would never ever bloom!  At first, it was one bad incident, then another and so on and so on.  It finally came to the point where I was disgusted with myself. I was straight out lying to people.  At times, I couldn’t even keep a straight face. Even if you put aside the fact that they really did not care about the customers (except getting new ones), their so-called “technicians” that do the treatments don’t have a clue on what they’re doing. I’ve even heard of technicians running out of pesticide (because the company was so cheap), so they would just spray water around the house, but the customers wouldn’t know the difference.  It would amaze me every day how screwed up and unorganized they ran the whole operation. I finally quit and found a great company that takes care of their employees, which is more than I can say for Terminix.  I’d advise people in need of pest control to stay as far away from Terminix as possible, and I am dead serious!
