Pest Control in Portland, TX

There are a lot of great things about living in a coastal city like Portland. The sea air. The stunning vistas. The close connection to nature and wildlife. But as every Portland resident can attest to, sometimes that wildlife gets a little too close. When mosquitoes and other pests invade their property and make living tough, Portland, TX homeowners know where to turn to send them running: ABC Home & Commercial Services.

Effective Pest Control Solutions

ABC follows the principles of Integrated Pest Management (IPM). That means the treatment plans we come up with are based on our knowledge of pest behavior and that they put a focus on prevention.

That doesn’t mean we won’t get rid of the pests that are currently bothering you. Doing that is always our first priority. Once we do, though, our experts seek out areas that might serve as breeding grounds and treat them before they turn into another problem. Then, we work on sealing up entry points and making your property inhospitable to potential invaders in the future.

4. Prevention

Customers with our ongoing pest management services will receive periodic retreatments to prevent the return of the most common pests in our area.

We can’t promise that one of our experts will be available the second you reach out to us. However, here’s what we can say. If you are calling about one of the most common pest issues we deal with (ants, mosquitoes, scorpions or spiders), we can give you an estimate for services—and schedule your initial treatment appointment—right over the phone.

Other pests, unfortunately, typically require us to set up a free inspection before we can offer an estimate. The inspection enables us to customize a treatment plan for you by:

After we leave your property, we will formulate and send you a free recommended treatment plan and estimate. As soon as you agree to the estimate, we will set up your initial treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are estimates for Portland residents free?

Absolutely! Our estimates are always free for all of our customers. This is true whether we are able to provide a quick estimate over the phone or if we need to send an inspector out to the property to create a unique service plan for your situation.

What if my pests return? Will you come back for additional treatments?


Absolutely. In fact, we typically recommend that our clients schedule periodic checks. This way, our technicians can see if re-treatment is necessary and keep and eye out for any other issues that might develop.

We also have a special year-round program at ABC where we provide preventative treatments to customers for some of the most common pests in the area during that times of the year when they are most active.

Can your technicians service my property when I’m not home?


For the initial inspection and any indoor treatments, we strongly recommend that homeowners be present. However, ABC does now offer outside-only pest treatment services, and we can carry out those when you’re not there. Provided you tell us how to access your yard, it doesn’t matter where you are—work, Sunset Lake, preparing for the big Wildcats game—we’ll be hard at work so that your pest problem will soon be a thing of the past!

Maria Cristina Halberdier


“A big thank you to ABC & Frank of Corpus Christi for helping us with our HVAC! Frank listened to our concerns & immediately located a leak in our system. He kept us well informed & took the time to explain everything. It was nearly 100° & we were thankful for the next day appointment. We appreciate all of your hard work!”

“I couldn't be happier with ABC's replacement of an AC condenser (outside unit). Even after replacing both inside (air handler) and outside units once with them, I did shop around to hopefully find something more affordable (since everything costs much more these days). But unlike others who tried to make me spend money on things I don't actually need or gave me a better price only after I tried to bargain, ABC was down to earth and Ed (salesperson) was most honest. ABC carries Lennox, which is supposed to be a premium brand, but it beat all other brand estimates. The team came almost immediately and did all the installation work in one seating (more than 3 hours straight). ABC probably won't pop up in a Google search for top AC businesses. Despite their anteater logo, they do a lot more than lawn care. Their HVAC services might well be Corpus Christi's best kept secret!”
