Wildlife & Rodent Control in Austin, TX

Lush greenbelts and pristine Hill Country spaces make Central Texas a beautiful oasis. Unfortunately, that natural beauty also provides an ideal environment for a variety of rodents and other wildlife that make their way into our homes. Luckily, ABC Home & Commercial Services can help! Our knowledgeable pros provide effective wildlife and rodent control in Austin so you won't have to worry about these animals making your home theirs.

Depending on which area of Austin you live in, any variety of rodents or animals may become an unwelcome presence in your home. Mice and rats are the most common rodents, but we also help our customers with squirrels, raccoons, opossums and armadillos.

All of these rodents can create problems. They may gnaw through electrical lines and water lines, create holes in walls via sheetrock, baseboards and siding, and get into and spoil stored food. They also pose a health risk when they take up residence in your home (even if you don’t actually see them) because they carry pathogens in their urine and feces, which they spread around your home as they mark trails and go about daily activities.

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.

We use a thorough treatment approach that has proven successful against every form of rodent and wildlife. First, a licensed inspector will inspect your home to determine the nature and extent of the problem. Whether it’s one pest or many, our inspector will zero in on the problem, where it exists and how extensive it is. Then, a highly trained rodent and wildlife control specialist will use the information gathered by the inspector to apply a treatment that is specific to the problem you are facing.

The specialist may set traps, find and close potential entry points through which the pests are getting into your home, maintain and remove wildlife caught in traps. We take the process seriously and we offer a full one-year warranty on our service.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I handle rodent control myself with some traps and some bait?

You can use a variety of mousetraps and similar devices to try to get rid of a lone mouse or a rat. Your cat may even think a mouse is little more than a snack. But odds are that if you see one mouse (or rat) there are others you don’t see.

A single mouse can produce a litter of six to eight mice in just three weeks. Moreover, they are adept at hiding during the day, and then venture out at night in search of food. For other, larger forms of wildlife, basic traps won’t work at all—you need a professional solution.

Ultimately, in doing it yourself, catching them isn’t your biggest hurdle. By far the hardest part is finding their access and egress points and permanently sealing those up – otherwise…

“One of ABC's electricians, Joshua, did a fantastic job installing shop lighting (inside/outside), a few panels, and re-wiring multiple areas. As a small-business owner, I know how hard it is to find great workers. Josh and his team are exceptional, and ABC should keep a hold of him.”

“ABC Home & Commercial has been taking care of me and my house for over a decade. This review is for their Spring AC maintenance. They come out every year before the hot summer months arrive to make sure that my AC system will be up to the job. Randall checked everything: He conducted amp maintenance, checked the blower wheel & blower motor, checked all amps, pressures and temperatures, cleared the drain line, flushed, and primed the u-trap, checked the capacitors, contractors and safety components and washed the condenser. I would never do all that myself. Most people are lucky if they remember to put bleach (or white vinegar as Randall suggested instead) in their drain line occasionally. AC in Texas is one of those things that always goes out at the most inconvenient time. I think it's important to do my part to take care of one of the most expensive "appliances" in my home. ABC will be back in the fall to do the checkup on my heating system. A few years ago, they discovered that my heater would not have started the next time it was needed, and they were able to replace the part right then and there for a good price. The folks they send are always professional, knowledgeable, and friendly. I highly recommend ABC Home & Commercial!”
