Fluorescent Lights Burn Out Too Quickly

I am having trouble with my 8 foot florescent lights at my business. They turn black on the ends and only last about 2-3 days. Could it be the ballast?

While the ballast could be putting in too much voltage, it is more likely the lamp sockets being lose. Check that they are tight in the fixture and that the bulbs are properly seated in the sockets.
