    2012 I had a "swarm" of termites, viz. newly hatched critters came into my house. Terminex treated the property and no more termites. I declined any further agreements.

    Yesterday I had another "swarm." I scheduled an appt w/a rep for tomorrow but the lady on the phone was extolling the virtues of a longer term contract.

    I also have another company rep scheduled, also for tomorrow.

    If the treatment lasts 8 or 9 years, is there any advantage to an ongoing contract with such a company?

    Gave them a shot, didn't like 'em and switched to Orkin, who I recommend.

    Too-casual workmanship, Required long-term contract comittment, and heavy pressure for added services.

    I had to have my house tented year and years ago, but I can't remember who we used.
