Houston, Texas, is home to many pests that can wreak havoc on your daily life. Whether it’s termites, ants, cockroaches, crickets, mosquitoes, or fleas, when pests take over your property, it can fill you with fear and anxiety. Luckily, Bulwark Exterminating can help protect your home from an infestation and rid any unwanted pests from your property so you can have peace of mind.
Before we can choose the best treatment plan for your home, we send one of our technicians to your property to conduct a thorough inspection. Inspections are necessary so we can determine whether to use a liquid treatment, bait stations, or both to eradicate your termite problem before it gets unmanageable.
Our liquid termite treatment is available to create an exterior barrier around your home. A technician will disperse the solution along each side of the property to keep termites from getting into your home and causing damage. This solution disorients the termites, causing them to return to their colony. The affected termites then further disperse the liquid solution to other termites that come in contact with it. The goal is to reach the queen, wiping out the entire colony or preventing it from expanding.
The second treatment option is our termite bait stations. These are very simple to install but high on impact. We place these bait stations above or below the ground surrounding the perimeter of your home. They contain poisonous wood and other materials that termites ingest. The scent attracts the termites, which then carry the material back to their colony. Similar to the liquid solution, the goal is to kill the queen and wipe out the colony.
If we conduct our inspection and find that you have an extensive termite problem, we will apply our liquid treatment around your home and strategically place bait stations in areas with a lot of termite activity. Our goal is to make sure no more termites enter your home and those that do don’t last long.

We also offer multiple mosquito treatments that can protect you and your family from irritating bites and possibly diseases such as the West Nile virus and Zika. The most effective method we use is mosquito fogging around the perimeter of your home.
One of our technicians will use a specialized fog machine to cover your yard and any areas where mosquitoes are prevalent in a solution mist. The mist will not kill the mosquitoes, but it will deter them from entering the barrier created by the fog. We recommend repeating this fog treatment once every 30 to 60 days or whenever you start to notice mosquitoes within the barrier zone.
To eliminate the cockroaches from your home, you can deter them in the following ways:
If these methods are not producing results, and you still see cockroaches, it might be time to contact a professional to prevent further infestations. At Bulwark Exterminators, we have special ways to deal with these pests and their destructive habits. So contact us to schedule an inspection.
For other bugs such as ants, spiders, or crickets, you can apply a few preventive measures to limit or deter infestation.
For ants, you can set up small traps around your home. The ants will carry the poisonous material back to their colony, hopefully killing off a large part of it.
You can also prevent ant infestations by keeping a clean home, storing food in sealed containers, making sure firewood is not placed against the house, and pruning trees or shrubs that rest against your home. This is an extremely important measure to take, as ants can climb up branches, onto the siding of your house, and then into unsealed cracks or vents that lead into your home.
Spiders are another pest to watch out for. Black widows, wolf spiders, violin spiders, and harvestmen spiders are particularly common in Texas. For spider prevention, seal foundation cracks around the exterior of your home, limit clutter, and vacuum rooms frequently to deter web-building. You can also try to increase sunlight in usually dark corners where they would be most likely to build webs.
Crickets are noisy pests that can enter your home through unventilated areas. They are particularly fond of dark, damp places, typically in basements or crawl spaces. To prevent crickets from finding their way into your home, seal any exterior cracks in the foundation, windows, or doors. Another way to deter crickets is to install yellow lightbulbs at the exterior points of your home and to weed garden beds regularly.
To sum it up, keeping a clean home with a tightly sealed foundation is essential for preventing pests from entering and building a home for themselves in your home with you, your children, and your pets.
