Teresa told me she smelled gas when she treated the inside of a heater unit in an upstairs room. The city came to check it out and found a leak there as well as a problem with carbon monoxide in my hot water heater closet. Fortunately, the c.m. was venting to the outside or I may have been a statistic. Thanks to Teresa for being alert and for making me aware of a serious problem.
Our free inspection is essentially an assessment of your home’s pest control challenges. We look for signs of pest activity and any environmental conditions (we use the phrase, conducive conditions) which may be contributing to the presence of pests.
Our evaluation will identify any problematic sanitation practices or environmental elements that are allowing pests to invade and thrive. Once we gather and analyze all the information from our inspection we can design a customized plan to rid your home of unwanted pests.
At ABC Home & Commercial Services, we take an IPM (Integrated Pest Management) approach and minimize the use of chemicals at every opportunity. When at all possible, we use non-chemical and low-impact solutions, such as our Termimesh termite deterrent (a 100% effective termite preventative which can be installed during new home construction), or our non-toxic heat remediation for bed bug treatment.
We choose the products we use with children, pets and the environment in mind, and our pest control specialists are thoroughly trained to apply treatment responsibly. The well-being of your family and pets is our #1 priority!
Each home will require a different service schedule, depending on the type of pest control needed. Your ABC specialist can help you determine an effective schedule for your home’s needs.In most cases, home are treated approximately every other month.
Everyone has different pest control needs, which is why we inspect your property thoroughly before offering you a personalized treatment and maintenance program. If you have a pest problem, we know how to take care of it.
Cockroaches are everywhere, and if you see one in your home, you can be sure there are more. Cockroaches thrive in dark moist places, are omnivorous (eat anything), and are incredibly resilient to the elements and even to attempts on their lives. Roach infestations can quickly get out of control if not treated. When you start to see roaches, it’s time to call an expert.
Bees and wasps are extremely beneficial to our environment—bees pollinate nearly a third of the flowering plants on earth, and wasps consume other small insects we consider pests. There’s mounting concern over the decrease in honeybee populations. Poisoning bee or wasp hives with pesticides can be detrimental to the whole area, and sealing the hive in your home can cause long-term damage to your structure. ABC recommendeds having these types of stinging pests identified quickly and removed safely by a professional beekeeper to avoid harming the nests. ABC can recommend area beekeepers as needed.
Corpus Christi is home to several different species of ants. Because they can be difficult to treat, it’s best to seek the help of a professional. If you have an ant problem on your property, ABC licensed pest specialists will inspect your property and eliminate existing ant colonies.

Pet owners aren’t the only ones subject to flea and tick problems. Rodents and other forms of wildlife can track these pests onto your property, where they can be brought into your home on shoes or other clothing. Fleas are actually immune to the effects of insecticides at certain intervals during their life cycle, so it’s important to understand their biology to be able to treat for them properly. ABC Home & Commercial provides the expertise needed to thoroughly treat your home for fleas and ticks.
