Could some of this be catching up with Terminix?  I work as a partner doing termite repair for Terminix. Well, I did. We had to drop them from our client list.  What could be the reason a small-town carpenter would drop a National account from their client list? They don’t pay!

When you begin work with Terminix, you are told checks are paid three weeks after you turn in your bill. Well, first it was four weeks waiting, then up to nine weeks.  We told the folks we would no longer do business with them, but they blamed the delay on an ice storm.  Giving them the benefit of the doubt, we agreed to do a job about 75 miles away from our homes.  The original agreement was that they would pay one carpenter for driving each way and pay for fuel used.  (They were too cheap to put us up for the night, which should have set off bells and sirens; but we wanted to do the right thing and gave them one more chance.)  That was four months ago, and we still have not received our check.  BTW, travel time was not allowed; and fuel will not be paid for IF we ever get our check.  Perhaps they should not contract work they can’t afford to pay for.

There must be financial problems at Terminix for something like this to be going on.
