Subterranean termite control bait stations are a bit controversial amongst termite control operators because these are products that create a perpetual need for maintenance service.

If you don´t keep bait stations filled with product, termites will go into your home.

Then, a termite control technician needs to add more product to the bait stations on a regular basis.

Here is the controversy:
Termite control companies LOVE repeat and residual business.

Maintenance services are our jam and so there is a very strong fan base among termite companies for a service that creates a perpetual need for itself.

The controversy is that there yet a few of us termite control companies who are not convinced that subterranean bait stations are working better than other methods.

As of now, there is not enough convincing evidence or data to suggest that these bait stations produce significantly better results enough to justify charging customers up to 10 times more than other proven methods.

We must be sure termite bait stations produce 10 times better results than traditional methods in order to charge our customers 10 times the price.

I cannot honestly say that subterranean termite bait stations work better or worse than other subterranean termite treatment methods, but until the products, methods, and data improve, I would NOT pay for it in my home, nor will I sell it.

In short, your escrow time is not just paperwork time. Escrow time is the time to get the necessary repairs and work done in order to successfully clear escrow.
