ABOUT TERMINIX

Terminix is the leading provider of termite and pest control services in the United States. Headquartered in Memphis, TN, Terminix services more than 2.8 million residential and commercial customers in 47 states and 11 countries. Terminix provides pest control services and protection against termites, rodents and other pests threatening human health and/or safety.

  • Terminix holds the first patent for termiticide, awarded in 1932 when senior chemist Frank H. Lyons created a unique insecticide.
  • Terminix was the first termite control company to franchise. The termite franchises were first marketed under the name "Bruce-Terminix".
  • Terminix was the first company to provide a termite protection guarantee or contract in 1955.
  • Terminix began offering treatment for general residential and commercial pest control services in 1958.
  • ServiceMaster bought Terminix from Cook Industries in 1986 as one of its first steps in building a network of consumer services companies. Today that network fulfills a broad range of needs for business and residential customers.
  • In 2020, management of ServiceMaster Global Holdings made the strategic decision to focus on the growing pure-play global pest control market and sell the legacy ServiceMaster franchise businesses, adopting the powerful name Terminix for the parent company. Terminix is now independently listed on the NYSE under the ticker TMX.
