Our professionals deliver effective, personalized treatments to keep your home free of pests. We’ve been serving homeowners in Texas for decades, and have become the largest independently owned pest control company in the area. We contribute our success to using the principles of Integrated Pest Management (IPM).
The core of IPM emphasizes efficient, affordable and low-impact techniques for pest control. Drawing from knowledge taken from the fields of entomology, biology, animal behavior and horticulture, the IPM method is proven to be effective while minimizing the impact on the environment.
The IPM approach prioritizes non-chemical treatments whenever possible. This method involves identifying the reasons behind infestations and taking preventative measures to avoid pest issues in the future. For example, we may recommend moving firewood or mulch away from the exterior of your home to make your property less susceptible to a termite or cockroach infestation. All of these steps are low impact and low-cost to prevent pests from coming into your home or yard.
Since no two pest problems are alike, the key to treating pests is creating a plan that is tailored to your property and the infestation. The first step in an effective pest control plan is to have a specialist come to your home to assess the problem. During your inspection, an ABC team member will:
- Ask questions about your experiences with the pests to learn more about your situation
- Inspect your property to find pests and identify points of entry
- Assess your property for any pest-related damage
- Identify the type of pest, if necessary
- Answer your questions about pests on your property, as well as our methods
After the inspection is completed, you will receive a custom treatment plan and an estimate. Once you approve our plan, we’ll set up your first service call.
We’ve been serving residential and commercial clients throughout Texas for more than 70 years. As a family-run company, we take great care in hiring only the best of the best. One way we do this is by having all of our team members undergo a rigorous screening and training process before they begin going on service calls. When you choose ABC, you can feel comfortable knowing you will receive the most effective pest control treatment.
How long will I need to wait for my service call?
Seeing any type of pest in your home can be incredibly alarming. We understand the urgency of pest problems and we make every effort to remove these unwelcome guests as quickly as possible. We always offer free, no-obligatory estimates. Sometimes, we can even offer estimates over the phone.
However, in the majority of cases, we prefer to send a pest control professional to your home to get a full picture of the problem. This way, they can create a personalized treatment plan designed for your particular situation. Typically, this in-person visit can be scheduled within a few business days.
Once we have a clear understanding of your needs, we’ll create a specialized treatment plan. Before we get started, we’ll provide you with a complimentary, obligation-free estimate to approve. Once we’ve heard back from you, we’ll schedule your first treatment visit.
What’s the usual duration of your pest control treatments?
No two pest problems are the same, so we customize our pest control treatments to meet the needs of each customer’s unique situation. That’s why it’s tough to say for sure how long it will take for an issue to be resolved. We understand that most homeowners would like to hear that their pest problem will be gone in just a few visits. However, most infestations require multiple treatments. Additionally, some pest activity is seasonal in nature, so we may recommend ongoing treatments to prevent another infestation down the line.
The length of treatment and number of service calls may depend on several factors, including the pest species, season and the extent of the infestation. We make every effort to rid your home of unwanted visitors in as little time as possible. To prevent pest problems throughout the year, ABC offers a recurring preventative service to control the most common pests in Beeville and surrounding areas. We will come back on a regular basis to treat for these pests.
Will I need to plan to be at home for every treatment?
At ABC, we know how disruptive a pest infestation can be to your normal routine. To accommodate our customers’ busy schedules, we offer “outside only” services that include routine treatment of the exterior of your property and yard. You don’t have to be home for these services. All we ask is that you provide us with any applicable information to access your property, such as a gate code.
How does ABC handle honey bees?
Bees are an important part of our environment. Because of this, our team will do everything we can not to disturb either bees or their hives. If you have a problem with honey bees on your property, we can give you the contact information of Beeville beekeepers who can remove and relocate honey bee hives in a safe, humane manner.
