Nevada Exterminators

Las Vegas ExterminatorThe 7th largest state in the United States is Nevada, and is home to over 2 million Nevadans.  With Nevada’s many beautiful white capped mountain ranges it is no wonder why Nevada is derived from the Spanish word “snowcapped.”  Nevada is famous for having the world’s biggest littlie city; Reno, NV. In addition, the world famous city of Las Vegas, and the awe-inspiring Hover Dam, are also found in Nevada.  Nevada is also home to many pests like crickets, cockroaches, spiders, scorpions, and ants. All of these pests will need to be exterminated or they will cause a huge problem.

Where will Nevada pests live? 

Most of the pests that live in Nevada are going to live on the outside of the home. Pest will live anywhere from plants, to woodpiles, grass, under rocks, and even in pool equipment. These areas will provide protection for the pests to live, and provide a valid food source. When the pest starts to over populate outside the home, they will then make their way into the home. Inside the home they will infest the walls and cause a major problem.

What will an exterminator do to stop the infestation? 

To stop pests from infesting a home, an exterminator will need to do a very intensive treatment.  The exterminator will need to identify what pests are living at the home. When the pest is identified, the exterminator can then treat for the problem with the correct product(s). The exterminator should also do an in-wall treatment to kill any pests living inside the walls of the home. The exterminator will then power spray around the whole home, and then treat the plants and bushes with granules.  This will provide the home with a strong barrier, and exterminate any pest trying to infest the home.

Where can you find a good exterminator? 

The best place to look for a good exterminator in Nevada is online. You can do this by looking on Better Business Bureau, Google and Yelp.

Easy Pest Control Strategies

Whether you accept this fact or not, but the ugly truth is that your home is vulnerable to pests. If you don’t implement precautionary measures from the beginning it will get just more and more difficult to get rid of them. There are more than 5000 different species of pests that can make your home as their breeding grounds. We have been struggling with pest control from times immemorial. Pests like cockroaches are actually one of the oldest living organisms on the planet and have evolved to survive in the most unfavorable conditions. Pest presence in your house can cause serious health problems. Malaria, dengue and typhoid are just a few to name from an array of diseases that pests can cause. At times these diseases can even prove to be fatal. For these reasons it becomes extremely important to adopt measures of preventing them from flourishing in our homes. It is also equally important to keep the surroundings of your house free from pests as sometimes these surroundings become the breeding ground for pests, ultimately leading them in to our homes. If you find your home infested with pests, your best bet is to immediately call a pest control professional. Professionals dealing with pest control are known as exterminators. In this article we will mention some steps that you can take to check pest population in your home.

  • Be observant:

No matter what pest control method you adopt, your home will never be free from pests unless you are observant. To start with, you should check your walls for any cracks. Pests literally love these small cracks. They burrow in to them and make them their breeding grounds. Any cracks that you find in your walls must be immediately sealed. Also check if your doors and windows are closing perfectly. Open doors and windows are an invitation for rodents.

  • Check moisture level:

In a survey it was found that almost thirty percent of calls that pest control professionals receive are for termite related problems. Termites can destroy your wooden furniture. If your home is built from wood, you should be even more worried about their existence in your home. One thing must be clearly understood, it’s not the wood that attracts termites. It’s the moisture laden wood that attracts them and serves as their breeding ground. First of all you must make sure that any furniture you buy is made from well seasoned wood. Secondly you must make sure that your dehumidifier is working well. During summers, if your dehumidifier or air conditioning system is not working optimally, moisture can seep into your wooden door frames and furniture. This moisture is destined to infest your home with termites and many other potentially dangerous species of pests.

  • Maintain hygiene:

Keep your house clean and dry. You must never leave unwashed dishes in the kitchen sink. The leftover food on these dirty dishes is the buffet for cockroaches and many other pests. You rarely see these cockroaches as they mostly come out at night when you are fast asleep. They venture out in your home at night and dine on any food material that you might have left uncovered. Many pests carry harmful microorganisms, they can easily transfer these micro organisms to any uncovered or leftover food in your house. Any person who then consumes this food is destined to fall ill.

Bulwark Customers Say Thanks This Thanksgiving

Thankful GirlsTomorrow is Thanksgiving; a day in which all of us here in Las Vegas reflect on all of our many blessings.

All of us here at Bulwark Exterminating in Las Vegas, have so much to be thankful for this year, but what we are most grateful for is you… Our customers!

Many of you have returned this gratitude recently, by leaving us glowing reviews on online review sites like Angie’s List, Yelp, and Facebook.

Las Vegas Residents Thank Bulwark

The following reviews have recently been added to our Las Vegas Yelp page, and all thank Bulwark Pest Control technicians for their hard work, customer service, professionalism, and aptitude.

You can read all of Bulwark Exterminating’s Las Vegas Yelp reviews here.

I have been using Bulwark for over two years and have been very satisfied. Their customer service and technicians are great. If we ever have a problem between services we simply pick up the phone and they are here right away. Our current technician, Maze Tufele is great. He does an incredible job and is always there when we need him. I have tried other pest control companies and Bulwark far exceeds anyone else in the valley. The best part is they keep the pests under control and out of sight, which makes me very happy!

Tom L.
Henderson, NV

Jason came out and did a great job as always. I’ve used other services before, but I would still end up with some pests now and then. I haven’t seen ONE since I started using Bulwark. They’re not the only company that guarantees their work, but I had to call my last company back out 4 times, and I still had pests. I’d rather have it done right the first time.

Martin L.
Las Vegas, NV

We’ve had Bulwark exterminating since October 2013, and they have been great. We’ve had issues with scorpions at our new home and with 2 toddlers and a dog it’s very scary. I have had no problems with them coming back out on a call back and every time they send someone who is knowledgeable about their products and does an excellent job spraying our home inside and out. The past 2 times we’ve had Dallas as our tech. and he’s very polite, punctual, and understanding about our problem. We will def. be recommending them to our friends.

Sheryle P
Las Vegas, NV

This company is extremely professional and our technician Dallas represents the epitome of that professionalism. Removing shoes without being asked. Explaining the work he was about to do and a general good conservationist.

They use top notch chemicals that have kept us bug and scorpion free for two years (even with vacant houses on either side) at a reasonable price. I have recommended not only the company to my friends, but also to ask for Dallas as their technician.

Ted V.
Henderson, NV

Dallas was great thanks again bro. Thanks for climbing in my foam factory of an attic to rid the scorpions!! We’ll be in touch.

Joe D.
Las Vegas, NV

Wesley Prierce was very friendly and made sure all areas were covered. He took care of my ant problem in my front yard.

Nancy J.
Henderson, NV

Happy Thanksgiving From Bulwark

Happy Thanksgiving Dinner

All of us here at Bulwark Pest Control would like to wish each and every one of you a Happy Thanksgiving! Eat way too much food, spend time with family and friends, watch too much football, and reflect on everything you have to be thankful for this year. Oh, and continue to live pest free!

Ewww Earwigs

Earwig on stemThe first thing people should know about earwigs is that they don’t really crawl into your ear and eat your brain or lay millions of eggs or any of that stuff. It is all mythical with no scientific backing. On occasion, just like a mosquito, fly or any other bug, a lost and confused earwig may find your ear, but this is not typical earwig behavior. The scariest thing about an earwig is probably its pincers.

The earwig is a brownish-black bug with a slender, elongated shape. At the end of its abdomen, the earwig has a pair of ferocious-looking pincers. These pincers are used to defend themselves and capture prey. When threatened the earwig may curve up its rear and expose its pincers. These pincers can pinch slightly, but are typically harmless to people. The pincers also determine the gender of the bug. Females have straight pincers, while males will have them a bit more curved, with a much bigger width than those of the females.

Earwigs happen to be extremely fond of moisture and warmth. They’re commonly found in gardens, potted plants, and under welcome mats; pretty much anywhere with its basic needs of shelter, food, and warmth. Earwigs eat different plants, insects, and greasy foods. Earwigs can usually be found gathered together wherever they can find their needs. This usually can push them into homes. Earwigs are most active at night and secrete a foul-smelling, yellowish-brown liquid from their scent glands.

EarwigLas Vegas Pest Control

Las Vegas is home to a variety of pests, including earwigs (although rare). If you are seeing pests like roaches, ants, spiders, scorpions, or earwigs in or around your Las Vegas property; call a Las Vegas Exterminator!

5 Most Common Las Vegas Pests

Las Vegas is world renown for its awe inspiring mega resorts, its entertaining shows, and hopping night life. Vacationers and residents alike can dine in the finest restaurants, cool off in lavish pools, and try their luck at a hand or two of black jack.

What many people don’t know is that Las Vegas has a dark side. The city is also home to some serious pests (and no, we’re not talking about the smut peddlers on the Strip).

Thanks to Las Vegas’ hot summers, dry winters and rainy springs, pests like ants, scorpions, crickets, roaches, spiders, bed bugs and termites all call Vegas their home.

Here are the top five most common pests that Bulwark Exterminating takes calls about in the city of Las Vegas, NV:

5. Desert Recluses


Desert Recluse - Loxosceles sp.


Often mistaken for its similar cousin the brown recluse, the desert recluse is another dangerous Las Vegas pest. Hiding in the tiniest, darkest, places it can find, the desert recluse is a threat to Las Vegas homeowners; because of their toxic bites. These spiders are a light brown, with a near black violin-shaped spot. Its legs are light brown, and its oval-shaped abdomen is dark brown, or even a greenish yellow. If disturbed by humans, the desert recluse will bite, producing a mild stinging, followed by redness and intense pain. Bites can cause death to the young, the elderly, and those with compromised immune systems.

4. Black Widows


Black Widow Spider 

The most recognizable of the Las Vegas pests also happens to be one of the most common… and the most dangerous. She’s the Black Widow spider, and she is marked with an unmistakable red hour glass underneath her large, glossy, black abdomen. Stay away from these deadly pests because their bites are serious business that may require medical treatment and anti-venom. Symptoms include fever, chills, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. Professional spider control services can keep these nasty pests from building their webs anywhere near your Las Vegas property.

3. Cockroaches


Roach On Cracker 

The dirtiest and most disgusting of the Las Vegas pests is also one of the most common. Number three on our list is the dirty, disease spreading cockroach. When referring to Las Vegas cockroaches, we are specifically talking about four different species. The American cockroach (also known as a water bug), the Australian cockroach (a littler version of the American), the Oriental cockroach, and the German cockroach are the four common Las Vegas roaches. Not only are these cockroaches found infesting your homes, they also infest Las Vegas restaurants. Professional roach control methods are needed to eliminate these pests from our Las Vegas homes.

2. Bark Scorpions



The most notorious pest found in Las Vegas; also happens to be one of the most common. It’s the Arizona Bark scorpion; commonly referred to as a bark scorpion. Las Vegas scorpions unleash a painful sting that can leave you incapacitated for hours, even days. When stung, you’ll experience pain, dizziness, burning sensations, darting eyes, nausea, and vomiting. Professional scorpion control can keep these dangerous Las Vegas pests away from your home.

1. Crickets



The most forgotten of Las Vegas pests, happens to be the most common. Crickets are the most frequently called about pests in Las Vegas, according to a recent survey by Bulwark Pest Control. Because they are not dangerous pests, they are often times overlooked. Las Vegas homeowners are reminded of these common pests when they start their loud chirping at night. Because they reproduce so rapidly, they can be found in huge numbers in and around Las Vegas homes.

Myths And Facts About Scorpions In Las Vegas

It is that time of year here in Las Vegas when we see weekly rises in temperature. For those of us warm-weather people, it’s a nice time of year. In places like Las Vegas and Phoenix temperatures have already dipped up into the triple digits. However, for bugs, it’s that time of year that their activity gets kicked up a notch. For scorpions in Las Vegas, the beginning of summer is practically a coming out party across the valley.

Scorpions are an incredibly dynamic pest, which makes them one of the most least understood bugs we find around our house. Here are a few things you should know about our creepy, prickly friends.

Las Vegas Bark Scorpion

Toxic is not the same as deadly. Bark scorpions are the most common scorpion found in Las Vegas. They are smaller, about the size of a house key. They are, indeed, considered the most toxic or venomous scorpion in the country, but that doesn’t always equate to “deadly”. Fatalities from bark scorpion stings is actually very rare. Most cases only result in severe discomfort, swelling or numbing.

Sever complications from scorpion stings are typically a result of three primary conditions. Small children usually experience prolonged and exaggerated symptoms, as they have a smaller body mass in comparison to adults. Their immune system are not as efficient as those of adults, and have problems metabolizing through the venom. For similar reasons, elderly folks are also the most susceptible to complications. Weakened and inefficient defense system can cause a myriad of problems.

Lastly, those with known allergies to other stinging insects such as bees should also be extra cautious. If you know you have such allergies follow the same response procedures that you would if you were to be stung by those insects. Wait and see if symptoms begin to escalate, but don’t be hesitant to head to the ER.

Baby scorpions are not any more dangerous than adults. Stemming from the comparison that baby venomous snakes such as rattlesnakes cannot control the amount of poison they inject into their victim is the same assumption for scorpions. There is no validated research that indicates that is the case.

Scorpions can survive a very long time without food or water. Many believe that scorpions are invading their home for one reason – food. While they do, indeed, need food to survive, they absolutely do not care how clean, dirty or food-filled your home is. In the Las Vegas summer, water and cooler temperature emission from your home is what initially attracted them to your home. They can survive several months on very minimal food. One cricket, for example. They are not specifically showing up for “Pizza Night” or to scoop up leftovers.

Scorpions are not rampant in the desert. Contrary to popular belief, there are not that many scorpions in the barren desert. Let me clarify. Yes, they are indigenous to the land, but we have made the problem and population much, much worse. The process has developed and grown over several decades. Basically, we have given them optimal conditions to breed and survive. For decades we have provided an abundant water supply as we have watered our lawns and plants. Our yards themselves have protected them from their natural predators and the interior walls of our houses have provided them shelter. There is nothing we could’ve done, or currently can do, to stop this natural process, but it helps to understand how and why they seem to infest your particular house.

Another day, another dollar. They are just trying to survive like the rest of us.

Bulwark Exterminating & Earth Day


Earth-Erde (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Today is Earth Day! It’s a day in which all of us can appreciate this beautiful planet in which we live, and reflect on our own individual efforts to lower our carbon footprint.

Over the past few years, Bulwark Exterminating has made many efforts to go green and do their part to save the planet, all while increasing customer satisfaction.

Bulwark Exterminating’s Efforts To Go Green

Bulwark Exterminating, who has a branch in Las Vegas, NV, has made many efforts to go paperless and go green. These efforts save some 60,000 sheets of paper per month. Here are just a few examples:

  • Customer invoices are now emailed, and can also be accessed electronically.
  • Pest control service tickets are being emailed to customers as well.
  • Any fax that Bulwark receives goes to email instead of being printed out.
  • Sales contracts can now be completed electronically.
  • Technicians utilize paperless electronic routing.

Going Green: Paperless Routing

One component to “going green,” is going paperless. Bulwark Pest Control of Las Vegas is now paperless.

Bulwark technicians used to have to drive in to the office every morning, and print off routes, customer information, and service notes. This created a lot of unnecessary paperwork.

Now, smart phone technology and special software allows Bulwark’s technicians to start servicing customers as soon as they leave their home. Each morning, technicians receive an email on their smart phones. With these emails, technicians are able to access their routes, customer contact information and custom service notes for each customers. No more redundant paperwork.

With these above mentioned combined efforts, Bulwark Exterminating has been able to effectively get rid of 60,000 sheets of paper a month! This will save a lot of trees.

Helping To Save The Planet

Paper production is the second largest user of energy and water when it comes to manufacturing in the United States. Paper production is also the third largest contributor to pollution. Reducing paper usage by 60 percent will eliminate over 200 lbs of greenhouse gas a year.

A small business can use at least of 10,000 pieces of paper each year… Per employee! That’s crazy! An average tree will fabricate almost 17 reams of paper. With the average small business employee responsible for using 1.2 trees a year just to do their job, some 178 million trees are no longer part of our eco system.

One pest control technician going paperless can save one tree a year. This Earth Day lets all make a stronger effort to go green, go paperless, and reduce our carbon footprint.
