Here in Texas we've got the red imported fire ant. Typically setting up camp along the sprinkler heads and along sidewalks and streets, but when the rain dries up and we have less rain, they will congregate around this area because it's just more moisture. They've moved along this expansion joint, come out underneath the expansion joint where there's more water in this watered lawn, setup camp right here. When this dries out they start moving along the concrete slabs and eventually migrate to the home. The house is like a large rock in the forest and the moisture content under the house is much more constant, much more steady, it doesn't dry out as fast. The first place they'll show up is right underneath the splash guards. They'll set up camp right along the foundation here. When we move it back you can see an entire nest; you can see all the channels and the tunnels and everything that goes on underneath this splash area. The key with ants is to actually get the queen, because if you just get the worker ants the colony will either move, split, or rejuvenate and then you have a problem again.

You know I have been bragging about how well my pest control company has been about keeping my home scorpion free for years. We went from 3 a month to 0 per year... unfortunately this year broke the record and we found 2 scorpions in our home upstairs. I was a little disappointed. When they called to schedule my appointment I told them about my scorpion troubles. The said they would tell the tech. To my pleasant surprise, the tech came prepared. He was aware of my needs and wants and quickly set about doing his work. He went above and beyond his call of duty to make sure we were satisfied. Thanks Brian. It's funny that I rarely see Bulwark or notice them when they come out to spray. Its like they are constantly working behind the curtains with no glamor, glitter, or spot lights on them. I mean, pest control doesn't seem all that sexy of a job. In fact I think it was on the dirtiest job show a while back. But Bulwark really does deserve some spot light and show time. They are extremely clean and professional. I am not happy that I saw a scorpion in my house again, but I am happy that I was reminded of how well this company takes care of me. And for the record, I would take 1 scorpion a year over 3 a month any day. Hopefully it will be another at least another 2 years before I see another one inside. Thanks again Brian B. for being an exceptional technician.
