Red, White, & Blue Bugs That Will Terrorize Your Independence Day

Every year we hear threats here and there against our country, but the biggest threats are right in our back yard. Pests like ants, beetles, and termites can truly terrorize homeowners year round. This fourth we want you to feel protected from these colorful bugs that can infiltrate your home.

Blazing Red Fire Ants


Hotter than your barbecue and chipotle chicken, Fire ants can be disastrous pests to crash your 4th of July celebration. Fire ants are extremely aggressive and territorial. They are well known for their harsh sting, which is unique to this pest. Avoid getting stung, or you’ll really have blazing chicken legs! The queen can produce up to 1,600 eggs per day, and colonies establish themselves quickly. Whether it’s on the grill or inside your home, Bulwark Exterminating will put out any blaze.

These pests won’t just steal your hot dog; they’ll steal the stick too. Bulwark is here to terminate these pests.

Bulwark is here to keep the beetle show under control.
