We started using Bulwark and Ed Sakugawa as soon as we moved in to our newly built home which has been more than a year now. I have used a monthly (sometimes bimonthly) pest control service for more than 30 years now since I am a person who hates bugs. I was impressed from the get go at how Ed performed the initial service of treating the inside of all our electrical outlets. I have seen him every two months since. He never fails to be on time, to be courteous, to answer every question I pose, to educate me on what he is doing and to take a little extra time being kind and attentive to our two puppies. In my opinion, Ed is outstanding at his job, he is conscientious and takes pride in his work, he is a caring individual and, I think that Bulwark is successful because of their ability to hire and retain employees like Ed.‎

What Do Springtails Do?

Springtails are so-named because of their sharp projection at the tail end called a furcula. They snap this appendage down on a surface to suddenly spring themselves into the air. Springtails are tiny insects that thrive in damp locations. They live in the soil, in leaf mold, under bark, in decaying logs and on the surface of freshwater pools. When found in structures, their presence may indicate excessive moisture conditions in walls or crawl spaces, under sinks, or around indoor plants. Springtails are harmless to humans, although allergies and dermatitis have been reported in some people sensitive to their presence.

How Do Springtails Reproduce?


Interesting Facts About Springtails:

Springtails become active in early spring and may be seen on snow cover, which is why they have often been called snow fleas. They are drawn to water, and commonly appear in vast numbers on the surface of swimming pools, seemingly overnight.
