Tired of sleepless nights? Sick of bugs?


Collectively, ants outnumber all other species on Earth, yet they do more good than harm. Ants are nature’s cleaning crew as they contribute to the process of decomposition by feeding on organic waste, dead animals, and other insects. They also work to aerate the ground and till the soil, fertilizing and creating fertile topsoil. When in their natural habitat, the work they do is of the utmost importance, but when they invade your property, garden, or home, they become a pest that needs to be controlled. Here are the common ant species you may encounter.


Of all insects that infest homes, ants are the most common. Ants are also very tricky pests to control. If you’ve tried to eliminate the pesky invaders yourself, you’ve likely discovered that just because you kill a few ants, you haven’t solved an infestation. The vast majority of pest control sprays that you purchase at your local hardware store cannot eliminate an infestation. Most of those sprays simply act as a repellent. Some of those sprays may even make your problem worse by causing the ant colony to bud. Ant budding is when the colony splits to make two separate colonies. The frustration of spraying the wrong pesticides has left many homeowners overwhelmed with the scope of their ant problems. You have good reason to contact a pest control professional and Bulwark Exterminating has a five-step ant control process that is a guaranteed ant control solution.

Bulwark’s Five Step Ant Control Process

  • Step 1: Inspection. The first step in controlling an ant infestation is a thorough inspection of your property. A Bulwark Pest Control technician will find ant colonies by tracing foraging trails back to their nest. Ants like to travel inside driveway and sidewalk cracks; and along fence lines and foundation walls.
  • Step 2: Identification. Once a Bulwark Pest Control technician has discovered an ant colony, they will determine exactly what type of ant is infesting your property. Technicians may even collect specimens for positive identification. Each ant species is unique in terms of nesting sites, habits, characteristics and feeding preferences. It’s imperative to understand what type of ant is bothering you, in order to best treat the infestation. It’s important to note that you may be dealing with multiple types of ants, or multiple ant colonies.
  • Step 3: Recommendation. After inspecting your property, and identifying the type of ant pest, an experienced Bulwark Ant Control professional will recommend a plan of action. Actions will likely include the application of a unique ant control solution, and other non-chemical measures. A Bulwark technician may also recommend trimming vegetation, eliminating moisture problems, removing dead wood, etc. Correcting these conditions will help prevent future infestations. Multiple treatments may be necessary to completely control or eliminate an ant colony.
  • Step 4: Treatment. Through years of experience and research, Bulwark has established a very effective ant control solution. After strategically applying this solution; non-chemical ant control measures will also be taken to eliminate conditions conducive to ant infestations. Your technician may opt to use ant baits, sprays, and granules in a variety of combinations as the infestation dictates.
  • Step 5: Evaluation.The key to long-term success in controlling and eliminating ants is to follow up and assess the effectiveness of the measures taken. Additional treatments may be necessary to ensure the ants never come back. With an every-other-month contract, a Bulwark technician will be continually evaluating and treating your home and property for ants.

Bulwark has been doing a great job of keeping our home free of pests without messing up the nature in our yard. Joe V recently came and did a great job taking care of a small fire ant infestation we had.


Torrey was great and very professional. We started pest control maintenance mainly for ants. He sprayed the areas needed and removed existing webs around the house. His communication was very informative. Torrey even came back to the house to make sure the gates were closed. Thanks Torrey!
