I have had other pest control companies in the past. Now and forever they will remain in the PAST. I was referred to Bulwark by my ever so GREEN conscious daughter who raved about the pet friendly service and pest control. I was not impressed when I sat at my house for 4 hours waiting for a tech who never showed. I called and was told they forgot to schedule one. I advised I was a Realtor who would have liked to refer Bulwark, but not after this first contact. I was assured they would send their BEST Tech...AND they DID. Ryan Peck was sent out probably forwarned by the office, but he was knowledgeable, courteous, and went above and beyond to make my experience with Bulwark a memorable one. Because of Ryan Peck I have referred several clients to Bulwark and personally would not allow any other tech to service my home. Bulwark needs to hang on to Ryan Peck with both hands, without him, I would either have criters or track him down and bring him back.
