Our approach to pest control brings a balance between an understanding of pest behavior with a practical approach to keeping these annoying creatures away from your property. After decades of serving Steiner Ranch home and business owners, ABC has grown into one of the largest independently-owned and operated pest control companies in the state. One way we have done this is by adopting a philosophy supported by many reputable institutions, like the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
Integrated Pest Management IPM prioritizes interventions that are effective while still being low impact and low cost. We frequently hear that our Steiner Ranch customers appreciate that IPM emphasizes using non-chemical interventions first. ABC’s technicians are trained to pinpoint exactly how these pests come onto your property and install protective measures to keep them away. We may suggest adjustments to your property like changing your water schedule, clearing leaves, cutting your grass and cutting back bushes. These are all low-impact ways to make your property less attractive to pests.
After decades in the business, we know the secret to successful, long-term protection against pests is a well-designed treatment plan. We start with a free inspection, in which an experienced ABC inspector will do the following:
- Ask you questions to gather the information needed to target the pests and areas which are at the root of your problem.
- Conduct an initial assessment of the extent and severity of your infestation.
- Document any associated damage to your home or belongings.
- Determine what unique conditions or factors might make your home or property more attractive to pests.
- Pinpoint areas where uninvited guests are making their entrance.
- Give you a chance to ask us any questions you may have about our treatments or pest control philosophy.
We’ll take all the information we gathered during this inspection to create a no-cost and no-obligation estimate with recommended next steps. As soon as you approve our plan, we can get you on our schedule to get started.
With a focus on customer service, quality of work and results for our customers we are confident that ABC is the best pest control company you will find. We stand out from other companies in this rapidly growing area because not only do we get rid of your pests without any hassle or stress, but we also provide peace-of-mind that our customers know it’s safe to have our team inside their homes. We ensure this by conducting thorough background checks and drug testing on all our employees. Lastly, ABC promises to treat your home as our own.
How long will I need to wait for my service call?
Once you spot a cockroach in your kitchen, we know you want them gone fast. When we can, we will give you an estimate over the phone so that we can quickly schedule your first service call.
However, the most effective treatment plans are based on a tailored solution. In many cases, we do ask that an inspector meet you at your home to get a full understanding of the problem. In most cases, this can happen in a few business days. After we meet with you, we will provide you with a full treatment plan. Once you review our free, no-obligation estimate, we can get your first service call on our schedule.
What’s the usual duration for your pest control treatments?
Every pest problem is unique, which means that each one requires a slightly different approach. We know homeowners would like their pest problems fixed in just one visit, but that often isn’t the case. Since pest activity tends to be cyclical, ongoing maintenance is needed to ensure we have sufficiently protected you from the next generation of pests.
The length of your treatment plan depends on a variety of factors, like when during the year you contact us, what insects or animals you have noticed and the extent and severity of the infestation. We now offer year-round service to control the “big four” pests in our area: roaches, mosquitoes, spiders and scorpions.
Will I need to be at home for every treatment?
We know that Steiner Ranch homeowners have busy lives. We do ask that you be at home for our free inspection, but for ongoing treatments we offer outdoor-only services. Customers who choose this option receive periodic treatments along their home’s exterior to prevent insects and other pests.
How does ABC handle honey bees?
ABC does not kill or remove honey bees. We know the value honey bees bring to the environment and we go out of our way not to negatively impact bee colonies. If you believe you have honey bees in your home or yard, we’re glad to provide you with the names and numbers of local bee keepers who can be of assistance in the removal and relocation of the hive.
