The initial inspection by a licensed pest control expert allows us to:

Palmetto Bugs and Other Roaches
Orlando's Palmetto Bugs are everywhere. They live in trees and flower beds, invading your home through small cracks and crevices.
Palmetto bugs are so ubiquitous in Orlando that some people say you just have to get used to them. But these pests are annoying, can damage your landscape, and will come into your home when given the opportunity. We don't think that you simply have to get used to them being around.
Our treatment program uses a combination of residual sprays that lasts 30-45 days.
For a pest that's inactive most of the year, mosquitos pose a huge problem for Orlando residents. Why? Because Orlando has a ton of lakes, a high level of rainfall, and warm weather. Mosquitos rely on these water sources and temperature conditions to reproduce.
For a small bug, mosquitos pose lots of problems for homeowners. They can make an outdoor living space uninhabitable and put you and your family at risk to contract diseases.
Termite Control and Treatment
The Orlando climate is perfect for termites. These pests love the humid air and dead wood. There are two types of termites in the area: Drywood termites and subterranean termites. ABC can inspect for both.
Bee and Wasp Control
If you have a bee or wasp problem, an ABC inspector will locate the hive or nests and then determine the best course of action for relieving you of your pest visitors.
With bees, the hive has an incredible value to our ecosystem in Orlando, and so we always try to find a solution that results in relocation, so that the hive can continue to have a positive impact on Orlando's environment.
Spiders aren't the peskiest of pests, but all those cobwebs can be unsightly, and some species bite. As part of our regular pest control service, the ABC inspector will knock down any spider webs on your property.
The inspector will also spray the eaves where Spiders typically spin web, ensuring that these eight-legged pests stay away for a longer time. Spiders, however, can re-spin an entire web in 3 hours, so it's important to keep a regular pest control schedule if spiders are an issue on your property.
We recommended a visit once every month or month and a half for homeowners concerned about Spiders.
Ants are tiny pests. But nobody wants a bunch of them running amuck on their property. Carpenter ants, for example, can cause damage to your home tunneling through your walls.
Our pest treatment for ants depends on the type of ant:
Flea and Tick Control
Fleas and ticks typically enter a house or property on the bodies of animals. You don't need to have a pet to have a flea and tick problem, though. These pests are also carried by rodents that live in the Orlando area.
To treat fleas and ticks, you have to treat the animal as well as the home. When that animal is your pet, that means either using a flea/tick collar or a pill like Prevention (provided by a veterinarian), which would have to be provided by your Veterinarian. If the animal is a rodent, then you'll need to trap and remove those rodents from your house, as well as seal off access points. A rodent control inspector can do this for you.
To eliminate fleas and ticks, an ABC inspector will employ a broad spray treatment -- both inside and outside the house. The inspector will then return for a follow-up treatment to ensure that all of the fleas and ticks have been eliminated. Since treatments do not penetrate egg capsules -- which are sources of new fleas and ticks -- this second treatment is essential to eliminating this particular pest problem, as it ensures that newly hatched fleas and ticks cannot repopulate.
