Pest Control in Temple, TX

Living in Temple’s warm climate means that a backyard dinner or time spent outside is enjoyable almost year-round. However, it also makes it likely that you could have a problem with roaches, mosquitoes, termites, bed bugs and other pests. When it comes to pest control, Temple homeowners rely on ABC Home & Commercial Services to protect them from unwanted visitors.

Effective Pest Control Solutions

After serving Texas home and business owners for decades, we fully understand pest behavior and the science surrounding effective, long-term solutions. We adhere to a philosophy embraced by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and are the largest independently owned and operated pest control company in the state.

We use an approach called Integrated Pest Management (IPM) which is based on finding a balance between effective interventions, low costs and low impact. These techniques work to prevent pest problems from happening in the first place by taking into account the interplay of all organisms within an ecosystem. A keen understanding of the intersection between biology, entomology, animal behavior and horticulture, mixed with industry best practices and the latest research on pest behavior, helps us craft practical solutions to even the toughest pest problem.

One of the main values of IPM is exploring non-chemical solutions before resorting to other types of treatments. ABC technicians pay careful attention to how pests are entering and exiting your property to install protective barriers to keep insects and animals out. Our other methods include minimizing moisture sources, which could mean adding mosquito dunks to birdbaths, adjusting your sprinkler system and removing excess vegetation where water can collect. Our team will also assess your property for areas where pests like to live and suggest changes like removing leaves, removing firewood piles and trimming grass and bushes to make your property less habitable to pests.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long will it take someone to get here to start working on my pest problem?

We understand that when you spot a roach creeping across the floor, you want the problem taken care of as quickly as possible. Depending on the nature of the infestation, we may be able to give you an estimate right over the phone so that we can get to work immediately. In some cases though, we may recommend an inspector meet you at your home to get a closer look at the problem you have in order to make a treatment plan tailored for your needs.

When an inspection visit is recommended, we do our very best to get someone out in just a few business days. After that appointment, we will send you a no-obligation estimate for you to look over. Once we get your approval, we can schedule your first service call.

How long can I expect an ABC treatment plan to last?

While we wish we could tell you every pest problem will be resolved after just one visit, the truth is that this isn’t usually the case. There is a reason these creatures are called pests in the first place, and it’s generally because they require some time and focus, which often involves a series of visits. One of the main reasons we recommend these follow-ups is to make sure that the creature’s reproduction has been halted so that you don’t have another generation of pests causing you headaches.

Your custom treatment plan will take a number of factors into account, including the time of year, the pest you are dealing with and the severity and extent of the infestation. We also offer year-round service to protect your home against the four most common culprits for pest problems here in Temple: roaches, mosquitoes, spiders and scorpions.

Do I need to make arrangements to be home for every ABC service call?

 

We understand that Temple homeowners lead busy lives. That’s why we offer outside-only services that focus on pests that make their way indoors. This service addresses your house’s exterior so that creepy crawling insects stay away.

“I was very impressed with the handyman services provided by ABC Home & Commercial Services. Mark was professional and treated my home like it was his own. He did a phenomenal job fixing the loose siding on the chimney and securing the cedar shutters on the front of our home. While working inside our home, he listened to my concerns and addressed the tasks with efficiency and informed me of the curing time needed for the caulk to properly dry. I would definitely contact ABC again for future needs and request the same technician again.”

“Have used ABC for lawn and home services for close to a decade. Prices are always reasonable, service is quick and work is always top notch. Most recently had damaged roof one day and the next day I got a quote and they were able to fix it same day. Javier and his assistant were very knowledgeable, explained what they saw, what they did and what we should do going forward. Excellent experience 10/10 would recommend”
