Mosquito Control in Bell County, TX

During the summer months, Central Texans know mosquitoes are a pain. While it can be extremely irritating to get multiple bites in just a few minutes outside, the real danger of mosquitoes is the diseases they can transmit, including Zika and West Nile viruses. When it comes to mosquito control, Bell County residents know who to count on to handle the problem and protect their loved ones—ABC Home & Commercial Services.

ABC is proud to have served Central Texas homeowners for generations. Our trained expert technicians routinely employ a variety of intervention techniques to help home owner’s control mosquitoes:

Targeting Mosquito Breeding Areas 

Although you probably know to dump any standing water that can accumulate throughout your yard, you may not realize how little water a mosquito needs to lay eggs. A teaspoon of moisture can provide ample breeding ground for a single female to lay up to 300 eggs. Since mosquito eggs can hatch in only 2 days, it’s a full-time job to keep an eye out for these problem areas.

Our highly skilled technicians know exactly where this moisture can cause you problems and can make recommendations to make your yard less of a haven for mosquitoes. We may tell you to place mosquito dunks in your birdbath, repair a leaking outdoor faucet or trim back vegetation to make your outdoor spaces less hospitable for egg-laying mosquitoes.

Applying Localized Treatments With Mobile Misting Backpacks 

While controlling mosquitoes from laying eggs on your property is important, you also want to target immature and adult mosquitoes who spend most of the day resting in your vegetation. ABC’s pros can apply specially-formulated mosquito control solutions right to the areas where you need it the most, whether it’s deep within your Asian jasmine or near your hedges. Regular applications of this mosquito-repelling fog will significantly reduce your mosquito population in the short term.

Providing Effective, Long-Term Relief Through Misting Stations

Since mosquito treatments become less effective over time, it’s important to schedule additional applications to keep your yard’s mosquito population under control. ABC’s experienced technicians can install misting stations strategically around the perimeter of your home to deliver automated treatments at the times of day mosquitoes are most active. You can also manually activate the misters through a remote-controlled device.

DIY approaches unsuccessful in reducing your mosquito population? There are a few reasons that homeowners have trouble managing these pests. It’s almost impossible to eliminate every potential source of standing water from your yard. Second, these biting insects lay many eggs which can hatch in very little time. Those are just a few reasons many Bell County homeowners call in the pros to help get mosquito problems under control.

Frequently Asked Questions

How soon can you get here and start working on my mosquito problem?

We know Zika virus case numbers nearby can feel scary. That’s why we do all that we can do get you on the schedule as soon as possible to begin to implement a plan of action.

For some of our most popular services—mosquito, spider, scorpion and ant control—we can give you an estimate over the phone based on the size of the area you want to be treated. Ideally, we prefer and recommend you schedule a time to meet at your home with us to do a full inspection and determine the extent and severity of your problem. After that visit, we can present you with a plan of action that we can start implementing upon your approval.

Can you give me a free estimate for mosquito control services?

Absolutely. While we prefer to visit you at your home to learn all that we can about your mosquito problem, we can also give you an estimate over the phone for treatment, based on the area that you would like to have treated.

If you opt for an in-person appointment, a trained inspector will meet with you to:

  • Ask you questions to learn more about your mosquito problem

  • Conduct a preliminary survey to determine both the severity and the extent of your mosquito population

  • Look for areas where mosquitoes are breeding and resting on your property

  • Provide you with an opportunity to ask us any questions you might have about our services and what to expect as a customer

Once this visit is complete, we’ll send you a list of recommended next steps to approve. After you review and approve our free, no-obligation estimate, we can schedule your first service appointment.

What’s the usual length of mosquito control treatments, and how frequently are service calls?

While we wish we could provide you with an exact answer to that question, the truth is that it’s a little more complicated than that. No two pest problems are exactly the same, so treatment will vary based on your home’s mosquito population and how the pests respond to treatment.

Since effectively treating for mosquitoes requires targeting these pests at various stages in their life cycle, treatment is generally not accomplished in one visit. Your customized treatment plan will give you a better idea of how many visits you’ll need to get your problem under control and when you should expect some relief.

Are your technicians able to provide mosquito treatment services while I’m not at home?

We completely understand it’s hard to take off work or be home every time a technician is scheduled to come out. That’s why we’ve developed a convenient “outside only” pest control option which protects you from a number of outdoor pests. You won’t have to be home for a treatment to occur, and you can arrive back home to a treated yard, which means pests are less likely to find a way inside.

How worried should I be about the impact of mosquito control products on my kids and pets?

We treat your home like we would our own and place the well-being of our customers as our highest priority. That means we carefully select products that are effective while being low impact on your pets and kids. We take the time to make sure our technicians understand exactly how to apply these low-concentration, residentially designed products in the smallest possible amounts. We’re always happy to talk to you further about any concerns you might have about the products we use for mosquito control — or any other pest service — on your property and address any concerns you might have.

Will I still see mosquitoes after a service call?

While we’d love to tell you that mosquitoes will immediately be off your property, it does take a small amount of time to see a big difference. After our treatments start to work, you’ll see a substantial drop-off in activity until your problem is eliminated.
