Fire Ant Control in Austin, TX

Texas homeowners are all too familiar with painful bites from fire ants. Unsightly mounds in our yards is another reason to get these creatures off our property. If you are looking for fire ant control in Austin, you can trust the locally-owned company that has been keeping Central Texans pest-free for generations: ABC Home & Commercial Services. Our licensed pros deliver effective solutions so you don't have to worry about getting stung.

There are two primary steps in our fire ant control methodology. The first step is getting a clear picture of the fire ant problem you’re facing. Our licensed pest control specialists will inspect the areas of your home where fire ants are likely to live. The inspector will also identify any conditions in and around your home that may be contributing to your fire ant problem and let you know the steps to take to correct the condition.

The next step is for a fire ant control specialist to treat your home based on the inspector’s report. The preliminary treatment takes into account fire ant behavior and biology, and ongoing treatment will include highly effective fire ant bait and liquid barriers. Our goal is to have your home fire ant free.

The ABC Process

1. Contact ABC

When you contact us, we will schedule an inspection to get an understanding of the problem. In some cases, we can give you a quote over the phone.

2. Get An Estimate

If you have an inspection, we will send you a custom treatment plan and estimate afterward. Once we get your approval, we will schedule your treatment.

3. Treatment

We will come to your property and treat for pests in common hiding and nesting areas. Over time, you will start seeing less and less pest activity.

4. Prevention

Customers with our ongoing pest management services will receive periodic retreatments to prevent the return of the most common pests in our area.

Although any Central Texas home will likely have ants of some kind, fire ants are a particularly dominant species. They will attack any other ants they find with powerful and toxic venom so that they have minimal competition as they breed and expand their territory.

A fire ant sting will hurt, but the bigger problem is that if you are unlucky enough to step in a fire and mound, you may not get just one bite, but instead a swarm of bites. Some people have an allergic reaction to fire ant bites that may require medical attention.

“I hired the handyman service from ABC to take care of miscellaneous stuff around my house that has been long overdo! They sent Robert (Bob) who was terrific! He came over with a smiling face on a Monday morning!! I found him very knowledgeable and proficient about his trade. He has a “can do” attitude which was truly appreciated. I would highly recommend him! A really nice guy!”

“Jeremy was great today- took care of our ant issues and even set up a follow-up to make sure things got taken care of in the back yard (which my son was supposed to unlock, but being a tween he slept through the appointment.) We've trusted ABC for 20 years, and their services became even more important when our daughter was found to have a fire ant allergy. We've trusted ABC this long because they take care of the issues, and they come back out and re-treat if necessary. Great service, great technicians!”
