Pre-Construction Termite Control in Austin, TX

The warm, humid climate in Central Texas makes our area a hotbed for pest activity, including termites. The most effective way to protect your biggest investment from these destructive pests is by installing Termimesh during construction. The experts at ABC Home & Commercial Services can work with you to ensure this proven, non-chemical solution serves as an effective physical barrier to keep termites away from your home.

The EPA reports that steel mesh barriers “have been shown to perform effectively as physical barriers” for termites. Termimesh takes that basic principle and improves on it with a unique, woven mesh of non-corrosive stainless steel that termites simply can’t penetrate.

Termites can’t eat through it, crawl through it, break through it or get around it. And to ensure proper installation and high quality, Termimesh only allows accredited and licensed installers—such as ABC Home & Commercial Services in Austin—to perform installations.

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.

Keeping termites out with Termimesh means zeroing in on the areas where termites will try to get in. For that reason, Termimesh is a non-chemical, permanent barrier, that is used in very specific places in the home’s slab.  It’s essentially a stainless steel barrier to keep termites out.

For example, even before your builder pours the concrete for your slab, we encase all of the pipes that come through the slab for your plumbing system, with Termimesh, leaving no gap for termites to slip through.

In short, if there’s a way termites will try to get in, we block it with Termimesh.

“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!”
