Terminix, the regional franchise of Terminix International, has been locally owned for 70 years. With modest beginnings in a small office on Poydras Street, Terminix has grown to offices on the Southshore, Northshore, and in the River Parishes. Terminix of New Orleans has been internationally recognized for the company’s Formosan termite research and treatment techniques. The late founder, Eddie Martin, Jr., entomologist, was recognized as one of the country’s foremost Formosan termite experts. Recently, Martin was elected into the Pest Control Hall of Fame, which recognizes leaders and pioneers in the pest management industry nationwide.
