James Foster is an outstanding technician, incredible employee (I'm sure) and a consummate professional. He not only has identified, treated and rid our home of unwanted bugs and roaches, but found a gas leak on a follow up inspection!!! His dedication to his job and to us was truly reflected as he stayed at the house with my family (I was out of town) until the gas company arrived. He is always a phone call away and always takes care of our home. James is a tremendous person of character and loyal to his company and their customers. Great Job James. BULWARK - Give this guy a raise!!
