We have been with Bulwark for the past couple of months after using several other companies. By far Bulwark beats them all hands down. Our tech Jameson has been great. He listens to our problems and addresses all issues both chemically and with personal knowledge on scorpions. Bulwark is always updating their techs with the latest info. They always take the time to answer any questions and describe what they have done at the end. Not like the other guys who spray and run. Highly recommend them!‎
