Out of the 179 reviews Bulwark Exterminating’s Charlotte branch has received on Angie’s List, 140 give an A grade; 22 a B grade. That’s impressive! Here are just a few of the many positive reviews:

Bulwark Exterminating provided complete initial service both internally and externally. We had various ants and other crawling critters not only in the 1st floor kitchen but also in two upstairs bathrooms. They come back every two months to spray outside and if any problems inside, they will spray as well. We have noticed a major difference and only once in a while see anything inside. I would highly recommend them.

These guys were very prompt and courteous. Responded to calls immediately and performed the service promptly. Over all I am very satisfied with the service. I had called to get the service scheduled. Someone returned with a confirmation call. The service person called ahead before arrival. Even though he arrived earlier than scheduled, he waited for my arrival. He treated my house and explained about the bugs and how they come and go. Treated outside and inside the house. Great people to work with. Great service. Few days later received a follow up call which is great customer experience.

The service person inspected the house for roaches. We had seen 2-3 of them in the previous couple of weeks. Then, I saw the offer for an inspection at a reduced price and ordered it.
The service person was friendly and well-informed. He appeared to be genuinely interested in doing a good job and said he had checked outside to make sure he was using the best treatment.
He told me that if the treatment did not work to please let him know. We saw a roach or two in the next week and I almost called back, but waited and have not seen another roach in, oh, at least six weeks. I was pleased and satisfied with the offer and the service.

Ticks

 

Ticks are blood-sucking pests that can spread many different types of diseases. Some diseases include: Lyme disease, typhus, and Rocky Mountain spotted fever. When they bite, they can cause significant lesions on the skin, and infect living tissue.

Ticks eat blood, and are creatures of the North Carolina fields and woods. They will look for hosts to attach themselves to by climbing trees and other vegetation. They will then passively wait for an unwary person or animal to brush up against it. The tick will then attach itself to it’s host, until it finds an appropriate place to feed.

Avoiding Tick Bites

 

The best way for Charlotte, NC residents to keep from contracting a tick-borne disease, is to not get bit. Staying away from areas infected with ticks is best, but if you happen to make your way into such an area, take the following precautions:

  • Wear long-sleeved shirts and long pants while working or walking in tick-infested areas.
  • Wear light-colored clothing, which will make any stowaway ticks easier to see.
  • Tuck your long pants into your boots or socks. This will prevent ticks from making their way up your leg.
  • Apply a permethrin-based tick repellent to the outside of clothing, predominantly to the pant legs
  • Immediately wash clothing with hot water and detergent, avoiding throwing clothes on the floor or in the hamper.
  • Perform tick inspections.
  • Get professional pest control.

Tick Inspections

 

After leaving a tick infested area, carefully inspect yourself for ticks. You may need help from a friend or family member, because ticks love to feed on the back of your head. Ticks will often times adhere themselves to the back of your skull, where they can hide in your hair. It’s important to note, that very young ticks and their larvae are very tiny and can be confused for a freckle on your body.

Species of Charlotte North Carolina Ticks

 

The Lone Star Tick

The lone star tick eagerly feeds on human blood, and will also attack and large wild or domestic animals such as deer and dogs. Adults and nymphs are abundant in the spring and summer months. The mite-like larvae of this species, sometimes called seed ticks, are plentiful in the fall months. It’s during this stage when the lone star tick will attack humans the most.

The Brown Dog Tick

This tick is active year round in North Carolina, but will rarely attach itself to humans. It’s your pets that you need to worry about when it comes to this tick. Pets need to be protected by preventing them from venturing into tick-infested areas.

The American Dog Tick

These ticks will prefer humans and dogs as hosts. They are active March-November, and live along woodland paths and in North Carolina parks. They can also be found in the shrubs of suburban homes.
