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

Tick Invasion

tick

I remember a call that I got last April, and it is a month this customer will never forget. While in her laundry room, she noticed an odd, gray bug clinging to the wall.

Searching out the Source

One day I went to a Peoria home for a call back service.  The family said that they were hearing crickets in their bathroom and they couldn’t figure out exactly where they were coming from.  They were getting annoyed and weren’t able to sleep at night.  I first started inside the house looking around the bathroom.  I noticed a compartment in the cupboards under the sink.  It opened up into space underneath their tub.  When I took out the screws and opened up this door, I noticed cricket droppings all over the inside of this space.  I treated the inside of the space with delta dust and Cy-kick.  I also… Read More

Ants and Bees

A customer that I serviced in Litchfield Park had a problem with ants and bees coming in and out of her dog’s water dish.  She had ants all over her front yard.  I took the time to follow the trail of ants leading to a dirt area outside their lawn.  These ants had to of been traveling over 50 to 70 feet just to get to her house.  I sprayed the curbing were the ants were trailing and around their hill with termidor.  I told her that the treatment may take up to 3 days in order for it to fully work.  As far as the bees were concern, I… Read More

Svea customer satisfaction

My name is Svea Owens and I work out of the Phoenix Branch of Bulwark Exterminating. I was calling routes one day and I was talking to a customer and she had felt a little uneasy about taking service. I had asked her if it was something we had done and she said not really. She then proceeded to tell me that for her first service she had a new technician and she wasn’t 100% comfortable with his knowledge. She said that the next technician that came out did a great job and was very informative and she was very happy with her service, but she still felt a little… Read More

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
