We understand that when you see a roach, rat, mouse or another type of bug or wild animal on your property, you probably want it taken care of, and fast. That’s why when you contact ABC, we will schedule an inspection of your property as soon as possible. Depending on the extent of the infestation and the pest, we may even be able to give you an estimate for our services over the phone.
In most cases, we recommend having one of our certified technicians meeting with you in person to assess the problem first-hand. We can typically schedule this appointment within a few business days. After our specialist inspects your property, they will recommend a treatment plan that is customized for your situation. Once you have reviewed this free, no-obligation estimate and given us your approval, we will schedule your first appointment.
We have been delivering high-quality pest control to Texans for generations. On a regular basis, we receive requests for the following type of pest control in Wimberley and the nearby communities:
When you spot one of these bugs in your bathroom after flicking on the light switch, it leaves you with an uneasy feeling, knowing that these creatures are lurking around your home. Many homeowners find these pests difficult to get rid of from their bathroom, kitchen or yard. These bugs have been around for millions of years and have evolved to live mostly undetected around us. They are also prolific breeders that can survive off nearly any organic matter.
Roaches are also capable of damaging belongs, spreading bacteria, contaminating food and leaving behind a musty odor. Thanks to our generations of experience with cockroaches and all other types of bugs, our technicians have the knowledge to create a strategy that is tailored to your home. Our treatment plans work to get rid of adult roaches and disrupt the roach reproduction cycle.
Mosquitoes aren’t unfamiliar here in Hays County, but we’ll never get used to their itchy bites. Eliminating mosquitoes in a residential area is nearly impossible since these pests need only a small amount of water in order to travel from yard to yard and reproduce. Mosquitoes are also capable of transmitting serious illnesses like the West Nile virus and the Zika virus to humans.
At ABC, we take a holistic approach to mosquitoes. We work to limit the number of adult mosquitoes on your property while making low-impact adjustments to your yard to prevent these pests from breeding around your property.
At one point bed bugs were nearly eradicated, but modern travel has brought an increase of these bothersome infestations. These creatures can easily hitch a ride home with you in your purse, backpack or luggage. Once they become established, they are incredibly hard for homeowners to get rid of.
These pests are skilled at hiding the tiniest of cracks and crevices, and they typically only come out at night when they sense a blood meal is nearby. Our experienced technicians have experience dealing with bed bug problems and will implement a detailed treatment plan, so you can sleep peacefully again.
In Wimberly, the most common species of termite is the subterranean termite. These insects live and eat underground, making them very hard to detect. Worse still, most homeowners don’t even realize these bugs are living on their property until they have caused extensive damage. A colony can have up to a million members that eat away at your home’s foundation all day, every day.
If you believe you have seen signs of termites on your property, contact us. ABC’s specialists can locate the colony and implement measures to eradicate the colony. We also offer an ongoing monitoring program so we can catch any termite activity before a new population can become established.
Rodent & Wildlife Control
Seeing a larger pest, like a skunk, possum, mouse, rat or raccoon on your property can be alarming. You may find your trash bins knocked over and items scattered, items in your attic in disarray, your food contaminated and your electrical wiring chewed through. Also, these larger pests can often carry smaller pests like fleas and ticks onto your property with them.
Our first step towards rodent and wildlife control is determining how these pests are gaining access to your property. Then we remove all unwanted animals and seal up potential entry sights.
Fire Ant Control
We can help with any combination of ants you may have in and around your home, starting with the variety that is arguably the most hated in Central Texas: the fire ant. Other types that our skilled technicians can help with in Wimberley include carpenter ants, pharaoh ants, acrobat ants and crazy ants. ABC’s specialists can eliminate the entire colony of fire ants in your yard or other species in and around your home so your family won't have to worry about these types of issues.
Tick & Flea Control
There is a common misconception that ticks and fleas can only make their way into your home by our furry family members. Unfortunately, this isn’t the case. Fleas can seemingly appear overnight and can make humans and pets miserable with their itchy bites. Ticks don’t necessarily infest homes, but even a tick can be scary, since these bugs can transmit serious diseases, such as Lyme disease. Our specialists can make a thorough plan for your home or yard, so you won’t have to worry about these pests.
Finding a wasp nest on your property is alarming, especially if you or a family member is allergic to wasp stings. These insects can gather in our eaves, entryways, trees, decks and patios. An ABC specialist can remove the nest from your property and seal up any potential nesting points. They can also provide tips on how to avoid wasps in the future.
Spider & Scorpion Control
Spiders and scorpions generally avoid us, but they are nonetheless frightening to see. Even though they generally aren’t aggressive, both spiders and scorpions can bite or sting in an attempt to protect themselves. In Wimberley, the black widow and brown recluse are the two spider varieties to keep an eye out for, as they are both venomous. If you are concerned about the species of spider you’re seeing, or wonder about scorpions in and around your home, contact us. Our specialists can identify the species you have, and then implement measures to control the scorpion or spider population on your property.
At ABC, we create customized treatment plans which are the most effective for your specific property and infestation. After you contact us, an ABC inspector will typically come to your home to get a better understanding of the problem. During this inspection, your pest control specialist will:
- Ask questions about where you’ve seen any pests or pest activity
- Assess your property to locate the pests and any potential entry points
- Take note of any pest-related damage
- Evaluate your property for any factors that make you more vulnerable to a pest infestation
- Identify the species of pest, if necessary
- Answer any questions you may have regarding the pests or our pest control protocols.
After this inspection, we will provide you with a free estimate for our recommended next steps. Once you have approved the estimate, we will schedule your first service call.
Unfortunately, there is not a one-size-fits-all solution to pest control. Every treatment plan we offer is customized for the situation, meaning that some problems will require more treatment visits than others. We understand that most homeowners would like their pest problem to be resolved in a few visits. Since some pests are seasonal, we usually recommend ongoing preventative treatments to prevent a future infestation and ensure that the current pest population is controlled.
We know that having a problem with pests is a disruption to your routine. We also understand that it can be difficult to be home for every service call. To help make our customers' lives easier, we offer outside-only services. Customers who opt for these recurring visits have their home’s exterior and yard treated on a regular basis. We just ask that if you choose this option, you provide our technicians with any directions needed to gain access to your property, like gate codes.
Homeowners in Texas have been relying on ABC for pest control services since 1949. One reason we are now the largest pest control company in the entire state of Texas is that we have developed a thorough training program. Also, as a family-run business, one of our core values is that we treat your home as if it was our own. For that reason, we have every employee pass a drug test and background check before being hired. Our customers know that their home is in good hands, and they can be taking a dip in Jacob’s Well or Blue Hole Regional Park or taking a drive along Devil’s Backbone while our team members are working on their property.
