Crazy “Princess”

As a technician in San Antonio, Texas you see a lot of different things, meet a lot of people & enter some interesting houses.  As usual, on one of our hot summer days, I stopped by a customer’s home that was on my route for a routine service.  I parked my truck, got out & walked to the front door to greet the customer.  A lady pleasantly answered the door. I proceeded with my routine script, “Hello Ms, my name is Ande. I’m from Bulwark Exterminating & I’m here to do your routine service. Are you having any pest problems or seeing anything inside your home?” She replied, “Yes. I’ve… Read More

Chance encounter

Unique story-  Rodney Crumpton This week I was running a route in Chandler, in an area I was assigned to as a missionary in 2001.   One of my stops was Susan Powell.  I didn’t recognize the name at first but the memories came back as I was driving down the gravel road to a family’s house I had become good friends with during my stay in Chandler 8 years ago.  When Mrs. Powell came to the door I let her know that I was with Bulwark but that I had been to her house before and she had fed me dinner about 8 years ago.  She reached back into her… Read More

Time Out

Have you ever tried to talk a woman out of Pest Control? There are certain things that you should just pamper your wife with, and pest control may fall into that category.

Booty “Service” Call

I recieved a call at the office and the customer was needing a callback for silverfish.  So I told them I would come right out and take care of the problem.  When I got to there, a man was at the door and said to go ahead and start on the outside before I do the  inside. So, I said, “Okay, no problem, I’ll take care of that for you.”   As I was spraying and I got to the backyard a nude lady was laying out in the sun.  So I thought to myself, I think the guy at the door forgot to inform his wife that I was going to… Read More

Roving packs of dogs

It was a typical hot, humid Texas Summer day. I had completed most of my schedule and I was getting into the stretch where every customer is home and needs just a little special attention to feel comfortable that their bugs will be gone. I pulled up to the next house ….

Dog Bite

I was working out in Scottsdale.  I arrived at the home and checked the back gate only to notice a BIG dog charging at me.  I quickly shut the gate.  I called the customer and she answered the phone.  She was home, but didn’t hear me knock.  She told me the dog was nice and would just jump on me.  The dog was put away and I started spraying the perimeter of the house.  I was in the front yard when the customer opened up the door to take out the trash.  The dog snuck out and started running at me.  Again she said the dog was nice; however, the… Read More

Don’t get Hosed

One day I was just finishing service at a home and was rolling up my hose when a neighbor walked up to the service vehicle.  So I stopped and went around to the other side of the truck to speak with her. She wanted service later on that day. I discussed the price and what we do exactly and she wrote down her address and information on the service agreement. She even paid and signed it if I would come back that same day at 4 PM.  I agreed and told her that I would see her at 4 and bounced my happy self back to the truck.  I hopped… Read More
