Albany - - A class action lawsuit accuses Orkin Pest Control of taking money for work it doesn't do.

Camilla lawyer Patrick Millsaps is handling the suit along with former Governor Roy Barnes and two other attorneys. This week, a judge granted class action status.

The lawyers claim they found significant evidence over the past 5 years that Orkin failed to live up to its obligations to 98-percent of its customers.

"You pay them every year to re-inspect your home and its important to re-inspect your home because you don't know how to look for termites. They're providing that service. What we found and what we have alleged and showed this judge is simply put, Orkin does not do those inspections," says Attorney Patrick Millsaps.

Millsaps says in many of these cases, customers had already paid for service. We contacted Orkin today for comment, but our call was not returned.
