With an intimate knowledge of pests and their habits, the professionals at ABC can deliver effective, personalized treatments to keep your home free of pests. We’ve been serving households in Brenham and throughout Texas for decades, and have become the largest independently owned pest control company in the area. Much of our success can be attributed to our commitment to the principles of Integrated Pest Management (IPM).
The tenets of IPM emphasize 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 it is feasible. The multi-tier troubleshooting method involves identifying reasons behind infestations and taking preventative measures to avoid pest invasions 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. Or, we may advise you to alter your lawn watering schedule or dump out kiddie pools when not in use to make your yard less appealing to mosquitoes. All of these steps are low impact and low-cost to prevent pests from coming into your home or yard.
The key to effectively treating pests is to create a plan that is tailored to both the property and the infestation. Our first step to an effective pest control solution is to have a specialist come to your home to get a better understanding of your problem. During your inspection, an ABC technician 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 we receive your approval, we’ll set up your first service call.
ABC has been serving residential and commercial clients throughout Texas and Florida for more than 70 years. Because we are a family-run company, you can trust us to respect your home and belongings as if they were our own. All ABC technicians undergo a rigorous screening and training process before they begin going on service calls, which includes passing a drug test and a background check. When you choose ABC, you can feel comfortable knowing you will receive the most effective pest control treatment, in addition to unparalleled customer care and friendly service.
How long will I need to wait for my service call?
Seeing a roach, rat or any other insect or animal in your home can be incredibly distressing. We understand the urgency of pest problems and make every effort to remove these unwelcome guests as quickly as possible. That’s why we always offer our clients a complimentary, no-strings-attached estimate. Sometimes, we’re even able to offer estimates over the phone.
That said, you’ll want to keep in mind that no two pest control situations are alike. Odds are you will benefit from a personalized treatment plan designed for your particular situation. In the majority of cases, we prefer to send a pest control professional to your home to learn more about your problem and determine the most effective course of action before beginning treatment. Typically, a visit can be scheduled within just 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. You can rest assured that we will 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 four most common pests in Brenham and surrounding areas. We will come back on a regular basis to treat for roaches, mosquitoes, spiders and scorpions.
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 Brenham beekeepers who can remove and relocate honey bee hives in a safe, humane manner.
