Satisfied Customers
BulwarkExterminating LLC has been my pest control/termite company for many years. They honestly are the best exterminating company that I know. I have used many other different vendors at other locations, but they did not run their business the wayBulwarkdoes. The technicians are great. They are professional, knowledgeable, honest, and caring people. They are a pleasure to do business with. One of their technicians-Luke, was wonderful. He took the time to come by on several occasions on a Saturday just so that I could meet with him to discuss what type of service I needed. He also followed up with me to make sure I did not have any pest problems later. The office staff is super easy to talk to and they care about their customers and their concerns. They even look out for your vegetable plants when spraying. If I had not of chosenBulwark, I would probably still have those ants coming in my new house. They put an end to our pest problems and they kept it that way. Their prices are great too
