WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

I just started my treatment and I can say Jonathon A, my technician, had customer service as his first priority. I’m looking forward to working with Bulwark as they help me to say “Good Riddance” to the pests around my home.

I have been using Bulwark for 5 years. The techs are professional, kind and always on time. Very accommodating both on our monthly service schedule and any one off treatments that I have needed throughout the years. I highly recommend Bulwark for your exterminating services.

Most Common Tacoma Pests

Cockroaches

Cockroaches, or roaches, form part of an ancient group that dates back at least as far as 300 million years ago. The modern cockroach started to appear in the early Cretaceous Period, which began around 145 million years ago. It’s likely that these insects are the most primitive winged insects on Earth today.

Spiders

Spiders are predators to many pests and may be considered pests themselves, when prevalent in your home, especially for those who have arachnophobia. The misunderstood fear of spiders and their creepy appearance is among a few of the top reasons why spiders are on the most hated list, and reason for some to have them eliminated when they find their way indoors.

Rodents

It’s that time of year when the temperatures drop outside and all the warmth is found within the walls of your home. You’re not the only one looking for shelters with warmer temperatures. More than twenty million rodents will start their search for warmth, water, food, and shelter during these freezing months (NPMA (National Pest Management Association)).

Ants

Ants are industrious insects, and finding a way into your home is easy. When there are cracks and crevices in the flooring, walls, and baseboards, around pipes under the sink, around windows, and heating and air conditioning ducts, ants will find these entry points and use them to access your home. Not only will ants have access to water, but they will also have access to food sources and areas where they can build their nests.

Fleas

Fleas are flightless insects that survive by consuming the blood of mammals and birds. There are over 2,000 species of fleas in the world and more than 300 in the U.S. alone. They are the most prevalent parasite that you’ll find on dogs and cats. The most common flea is Ctenocephalides felis, otherwise known as the cat flea. Other types of fleas are human fleas, dog fleas, and rat fees.

Hiring Pest Control Professionals

Pest control professionals must be trained and pass state certification tests to practice and charge as experts. Many Tacoma pest control professionals will begin their education at the University of Tacoma or Washington State, pursuing studies in Etymology. Book smarts get professionals started, but hours of on the job, infield work is required to be a certified pest control operator and the responsible party for an entire pest control company. Every business that wishes to charge for pest control must have a Qualifying Party (QP). Every technician must work under a qualifying party and pass exams each year.

HIRING

Finding a service that meets the basic requirements to operate in Tacoma is easy. Beyond qualifying for a license comes the experience portion of the exterminator of hire. Taking it one step further, understanding the background of a pest professional whom homeowners will be trusting to go inside their homes is also weighed heavily in the hiring process. Most consumers feel reassured when a company performs background checks for criminal history and drug tests for drug use.

The smile tops the success of professionals off. Knowing how to kill bugs, having a license, and providing a grump face does not equate t being a professional. Professionals have the knowledge, skills, and etiquette to make homes bug-free and customers happy.

EXPERIENCED

Many professionals will list the years they have been in business: “Family pest control service since 1999”. Hiring the right professional experience matters, as those who have been around longer having seen more and dealt with the vast array of pest problems in the Tacoma area. Understanding the different methods to use on a cockroach population that has become pesticide-resistant is a matter of experience. Tracking mice and rats and spotting their entry points and nesting areas comes with experience. While the price tag on experience may seem high, getting it done right will save time, headaches, and having to employ multiple less experienced exterminators.

TRAINED

What new practitioners lack in experience they can overcome with proper training. Where service pros are quality trained in-house by experienced stewards, one will find consistent and reliable service across an entire company. On-going training means getting to higher tiers faster. On-going training also means preventing troughs in the quality of service.
