October 2023: A long time ago neighbors suggested to use Bulwark Exterminating to protect my home from pests and turned out to be a great decision. I have custom needs where do not allow spraying inside my home and only spray round the home and get rid of wasps, carpenter ants and cockroaches. The service guys are always professional and friendly like Joe V., who currently services my home. He cleans up any webs, takes down wasp nests, and takes care of my mosquito problem. I have no complaints.


We have been with Bulwark for years. Anytime services are required outside of our normal schedule they show up within hours. We have had Jayden Meeks servicing our property for most of this year. It is great to have the same person show up each time and know the details of your home and what it requires. Like, I prefer to keep my spiders on the outside, so I don’t like them knocked down.



Finding the Right Solution to Pest Control in Show Low

If you’re dealing with spiders or rodents, including gophers, in your Show Low home or business, pest control is probably at the top of your mind. Considering all your options can help you find the right pest control solution for your property.

DIY Pest Control vs. Professional

Pest control solutions typically fall under two categories: DIY options and professional ones. Both options have pros and cons that are worth considering.

The most effective way to control pests is to understand which pests you have and the preferred treatment options. Professionals have the expertise to accurately identify pests and decide on the best way to treat them. Identification can be challenging for novices and, in the case of spiders, potentially dangerous. Novices also usually don’t understand the way that variables such as the size of an infestation or property and the current climate can impact treatment options.

Most DIY pest control solutions use harsh chemicals, which can decrease the air quality in your home and put you and the members of your household at risk. These options also increase your carbon footprint. Modern professionals often have less toxic extermination options. Choosing a company like Bulwark Exterminating, which prides itself on organic, eco-friendly, and pet-friendly extermination solutions, is much better for you, your loved ones, and the planet.

Buying DIY pest control solutions is much cheaper than hiring professional exterminators in the short term. However, DIYers often end up spending more as they try different solutions to drive pests out. They also often have large bills for property damage caused by stubborn pests. A professional exterminator may seem expensive at first, but their services are often more cost-effective.

Many pest control services also offer a guarantee on their services, such as any follow-up treatments being free of charge. DIY solutions offer no such guarantee, so you can often spend more than you expect.

How Much Does Pest Control Cost?

The cost of pest control varies depending on factors including the size of the infestation and property. Here are the average costs of some of the most common exterminator services in Show Low:

Spider Exterminator Cost
The average spider extermination costs between $200 and $500. Prices vary depending on the extermination method used and the location of the spiders. Regular maintenance also typically costs less than the initial spider exterminations.

Mice and Rat Exterminator Cost
The average mice exterminator costs between $450 and $600. There is a wider average range for rat exterminators, with typical prices ranging from $200 to $800. Prices vary depending on the scope of extermination services, the location of the mice and rats, and the entry points requiring sealing.

Gopher Exterminator Cost
The average cost of a gopher exterminator is between $500 and $700. The number of gophers, the extent of yard damage, and the extermination method can all impact the cost.

What To Expect

Knowing what to expect when you book an exterminator can help you feel more confident about using their services. Here are some things to expect during and after your extermination services for common Show Low pests.

What Can You Expect After an Exterminator Sprays for Spiders?

Exterminators use sprays that offer protection for around one to three months. Exterminators spray around the perimeters of the treatment area to create a barrier that keeps spiders out. You should avoid hard scrubbing around your skirting boards and baseboards to preserve this barrier.

You may also notice more spiders and other pests soon after spraying. This is totally normal as pests living within your home get flushed out by the treatment. You should notice far fewer webs within around four weeks. Around six weeks after the extermination, your spiders should be totally gone. It’s a good idea to book follow-up treatments every two to three months to keep spiders at bay, especially if you have woodpiles or a lot of nearby trees that attract arachnids to your property.

How Do Exterminators Get Rid of Mice and Rats?

As mice and rats are similar rodents, exterminators use the same process to get rid of them. First, they inspect the property to determine what rodents you have, where they live, and the food sources and access points they’re using. They may use a UV rodent tracker, which highlights rodent urine around your home or business. They then seal the entry and exit points rodents use, including vents, holes, and crawl spaces, and remove their food sources.

With the rodents trapped inside the space, exterminators eliminate your mice and rats with bait stations and traps. Once the mice and rats die, your exterminators safely dispose of their remains and the traps, including the baits that can be dangerous to pets. They then ventilate the rooms so you can use them again.

How Do Exterminators Get Rid of Gophers?

Gophers can be among the trickiest pests to remove from your home, so it’s always best to trust the professionals with this job. Exterminators start this troublesome task by assessing your property and the damage they’ve caused. Once they understand your gopher situation, they smoke out their tunnels and nests. Responsible exterminators use this method over traditional poisons and traps as it is safe for pets and won’t cause explosions, which can further damage your land and start fires.

After treating the gophers, exterminators apply a topical repellent to the grass. Its strong odor and unfavorable taste deter gophers from returning to your property. Gophers can quickly cause damage, so exterminators recommend booking this topical treatment regularly to make sure these pesky rodents stay away.
