Why you can trust Top Ten Reviews Our expert reviewers spend hours testing and comparing products and services so you can choose the best for you. Find out more about how we test.

The advantage of Bulwark Pest Control is that it's a relatively local company, only operating in 12 states: Arizona, Georgia, Kansas, Missouri, Nevada, North Carolina, South Carolina, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Utah and Washington. This means it becomes very familiar with the areas it does business in, and the pest problems they're impacted by. They have a big presence in the southern states, so are familiar with scorpions, spiders, roaches and some rarer pests that are found in these areas. They have quick and friendly service, and flexible payment plans.

If you have a pest emergency and you’re a current client, Bulwark will send a technician to deal with the issue within 24 hours. Generally, you can get a technician to come out to inspect and treat your home within 24 to 48 hours after your initial estimate. It’s up to you whether you want a one-time treatment or an annual plan for pest and termite control. Following the treatment, the tech will give you a list of the areas he or she treated so you can avoid those areas until they’ve dried. Of course, as with the best pest control companies, Bulwark uses eco-friendly pest control products, and the company will use only what’s needed to deal with the pest.

Most pest exterminators won’t give you a quote over the phone or online for termination of termites, and Bulwark is no exception. Exterminator prices are only approximate when given over the phone, but you can get a quote after scheduling an inspection with a technician.

The range of pests that Bulwark can eliminate is wide. Whether you’re dealing with cockroaches, mosquitoes, beetles, moths, spiders, ants or termites, the service can help you get rid of the infestation, and employ different methods to keep the pests from coming back.

A service agreement with these exterminators includes a guarantee, regardless of whether you choose a one-time treatment or an annual plan. If you aren’t satisfied with the technician’s work or if bugs come back, you can give the company a call and request another round of bug control or extermination. Although you cannot contact a Bulwark employee 24/7, you can adjust and manage your account online.

If you’re uncertain of what type of pest you have roaming your halls or pantry, you can check the pest library on the company website. You can get tips on preventing pest infestations, but there aren’t any solutions posted on the site.

Should you choose Bulwark?

Bulwark can exterminate almost any pest problem you have and provide pest control for your home. The company guarantees its work and offers return service if you aren’t satisfied for any reason, but the response time is slower than other services on our list. Although you cannot get 24-hour assistance from Bulwark, you can manage your account on the company’s website.
