Hotel & lodging cleanliness ranks as one of the top factors in gaining—and keeping—customer loyalty. Evidence of insects and other pests can be seriously off-putting to your guests and could negatively affect your reputation. That’s why having a thorough pest management program in place is so important for any hotel, motel, or other form of lodging. At ABC, we take an environmentally conscientious approach to developing comprehensive pest control solutions for your property.
Here are some of the services we offer:
Pests thrive in Corpus Christi’s more humid climate, so having an effective pest prevention and management plan in place is essential for any hotel. Our licensed professionals will perform a thorough inspection and then design a program that best fits your needs. ABC can treat for a wide variety of insect pests including the following termites, flies, ants, roaches, spiders, crickets, wasps & bees, birds & bats, rats & mice and mosquitoes.
Bed bugs can cause serious problems for hotels as infestations can quickly take hold. Thus, early detection and comprehensive treatment is absolutely essential. The eradication process can be labor intensive, but ABC has specialists on staff who will discreetly evaluate your property and run a thorough pre-treatment checklist to prepare the treatment area. As a treating methodology, ABC utilizes heat. By heating up the space, all stages of the Bed Bugs are killed, including eggs and adults. The heat treatment takes the better part of one day and leave no residual impact. The space is available for use the next day. Other options are available for circumstances where treating with heat are impractical.
Additionally, when desired, ABC's Commercial Inspectors can work with management staff to set up a pro-active, treatment service to help minimize the risk of isolated infestations becoming more widespread.
Whether in guest rooms or food service areas, evidence of rats or mice is an unpleasant discovery and one with potential health consequences for guests and staff. Rodents, as well as other wildlife such as squirrels, raccoons, opossums, and skunks, can cause property damage from chewing on insulation, wiring, or dry wall. Our skilled technicians will come inspect your property for rodent activity and possible entry areas, and then design a pest management plan to deal with current problems and prevent rodents from getting back in.
Birds or bats may decide they want to take up residence on your property along with the human guests. Sometimes, they may just be passing through, but if evidence indicates they are sticking around, we have specialists who can design a plan to deter the animals presence and prevent them from continuing to nest or roost in the area.
Appearances are important. At ABC, we can help you maintain a beautiful lawn on your property with our regular mowing, weeding and edging services. We can also maintain irrigation systems to keep your lawns watered all summer long.
Count on us to keep your landscape in top shape. We provide landscape design and maintenance, including tree and shrub trimming, decorative gravel cleanup, and plant replacement.

At ABC, our primary tenet for pest management is the practice of IPM – Integrated Pest Management. IPM says that there are a variety of practices that can improve pest management, before turning to the use of chemicals or products.
For example, ensuring that doors & windows are sealed securely all the way around, so that insects cannot enter the interior even when shut. Or ensuring that refuse bins are securely shut & sealed so that animals like rodents or raccoons aren’t drawn to the vicinity by easy access to food in the trash.
In fact, most visits by an ABC treating specialist will consist of inspection, monitoring and pro-actively ensuring that the customer’s premises don’t encourage pest visits by providing conducive conditions for pests to flourish.
