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.

These eggs are usually found in a secluded crevice of some sort. Only a small percentage of eggs make it all the way to maturity.
