Description Of Work:
We had experienced ants coming into our garage and home. This had been going on for a few months. Then I heard a “critter” scratching around in our attic. That prompted me to call an exterminator and take care of both problems. Bulwark got me quickly on their schedule. Very personable, knowledgeable man came and sprayed inside and outside for the bug problem. Also set a trap in the attic and bait boxes in the back yard to catch the RATS – PLURAL!! Eeeck!!! (determined by the type and amount of “droppings” found in attic). They came back 2 weeks later to check the traps (found 1 dead rat). They are coming out 2 weeks from that follow-up date to check again. They’ll keep coming until that problem is resolved. Thank goodness!!

Thanks Debbie!

We are grateful for your feedback! Fire ants are a big problem in the Austin area and regular pest control is required to keep these aggressive ants under control. A fire ant queen can produce over 1000 new eggs a day!  Yikes.  It’s also interesting that the queens fly in to start new colonies.  These new colonies will go unnoticed for few days to a couple of weeks until the queen is ready to hatch out her eggs.  Then they push up those easy to spot fire ant mounds placing the eggs near the top so that they can heat up and start blowing up like popcorn.  Pop, Pop, POP!  And out come your newest harvest of fire ants!

But don’t worry!  We’ve got you protected.  Even when these mounds pop up in between your regular visits!  Just call us up and we will be out within 48 hours to treat the fire ants at no extra charge.

Most Reviewed Austin Pest Control Service

Listen to what Tony has to say:

“We just celebrated our first year here in Austin and as you can imagine, we love everything about it: the people, the weather, our exterminating company. That’s right, I said it. When we first moved in we immediately noticed that we were going to need a good pest control service (ants, rolly pollies, June bugs, etc.). Luckily for us, Bulwark knocked on our door our third day here. They advised us that we needed to set up service and quick…with them or with someone else but do it and do it quick. After consulting with family and neighbors, Bulwark came highly recommended. And boy were they right. Every time they come, they are professional, personable, and most importantly, GOOD. With three kids and two dogs, it was important to us to get the bugs in our backyard under control. And since Bulwark started coming, it’s all good. And the last two times we’ve had the pleasure of having Roger as our technician. He’s been on time, professional, and great with the kids and dogs. In addition to doing a good and thorough job of spraying, he’s given us some great tips on how to combat Texas critters. I sincerely hope we can have him assigned to us permanently. And for anyone that is looking for a pest control company, look no further. You’ve found the best. Thanks Bulwark and thanks Roger.”

Jessica writes:
“Have been a customer for 7 or 8 years at two different residences. Jeff Baker has been our technician on several occasions here and is terrific. Listens to what our specific needs/problems are, is full of excellent information and tips about the various creepy crawly things we live around, takes extra precautions treating the area around our rabbits’ dwelling, and puts my mind at ease, giving the outdoor perimeter and our indoor living space the level of treatment necessary to keep us safe from all the scorpions and centipedes here in the hill country. We have had great service from other Bulwark technicians as well, and Bulwark is always willing to get someone out here quickly for us, anytime between regular treatments…we recently completely cleared our backyard of years and years of layers of leaves and, as a result, suddenly saw scorpions and centipedes in the house…I called yesterday and Jeff came out today and did a great job!”

Chris writes:
“Admittingly, I have been an ABC Pest & Lawn customer for as long as I can remember. My parents have used them since I was a kid growing up, and I continued to use them myself. My family and I just moved into our house a few months ago and were getting ready to transfer our pest control service from our old home to our new one. I was approached by a enthusiastic Bulwark employee named Oliver who sold me on the idea of “thinking outside of the box” and trying something new–which happens to be something that I am not used to doing. I signed up with Bulwark yesterday and first thing this morning, technician NATE BURGI was at my door (actually, he was 15 minutes early which is a plus in my book). Nate was extremely knowledgeable, professional and was very interested in assisting with my pest control needs. Nate was extremely diligent in providing a thorough and quality service for me and my family. So far, I am extremely impressed with Bulwark and I am glad that I made the decision to switch from ABC to Bulwark. Thanks Nate, Oliver, and Bulwark Exterminating. Chris F. Teravista/Round Rock.”

Winged Ant or Winged Termite?

Thursday, 2 July, 2009

We received this email yesterday from a local Austin resident-

“I found a few winged insects in my home tonight and I am unsure if it is a flying ant or termites.” -Cain C., Austin, TX

Great question Cain. How can you tell if it’s a winged termite or a winged ant?

The winged termite and winged ant look similar. They can both be dark in color and have very long wings. Termites, however have rounder bodies and shorter legs, for the most part. Ants are usually larger and have a bend in their antenna. But the biggest give away is that ants will have a “waist” between the upper body and lower body. The ant’s abdomen essentially looks like a big butt. Here is a perfect photo to show the difference:

termite v ant Winged Ant or Winged Termite?

The difference between a winged ant and a winged termite

My guess without seeing the insect would be that its an ant, as it is ant season right now and those reproductive ants are out looking to establish new colonies. But being either an ant or a termite a winged insect means that they are reproductives so get rid of it and then you better start looking for the main colony.
