Termite Control in Corpus Christi, TX

Termites are incredibly destructive, causing more than a billion dollars of property damage every year in America. If you think you might have termites, turn to ABC Home & Commercial Services expert termite control. We will end their free meals and eradicate the termites from your premises.

ABC sends out a termite specialist who understands termite behavior. Those specialists will inspect your home for the location of the termites and evaluate actual termite damage. We’ll explain the finding to you and make you aware of all your options.

If we find evidence of termites, we will devise a treatment plan that may include the use of Termidor – one of the best and most effective products ever invented. As needed, we will apply Termidor where the termites are feeding. This treatment causes termites to carry the bait back to their nests and transfer it to others by sharing food. Over time, this bait will cause the entire colony to die.

In the case of Subterranean termites, we normally apply a liquid treatment everywhere that we find the termites or where we find conditions conducive for termites to flourish. In the case of Drywood termites, we’ll likely recommend fumigation as the best way to eradicate the problem. However, every case is evaluated upon its own unique needs, and homeowners help decide the best solution for their home.

If you are building a new property, consider calling us to install our tried and true Termimesh system. Termimesh is a 100% effective steel mesh that is installed along with the slab of the home. It prevents termites from accessing your house, is non-toxic and provides permanent termite protection.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are the products you use friendly for pets and children?

We choose our products for both their effectiveness and their level of environmental friendliness. We highly value the health of our communities, your family, and the environment.

I've heard of tenting or fumigating for treatment. What does that involve?

For certain types of termites, it’s the only effective way of treatment. It requires completely covering and enclosing the structure with large, heavy-weight tarps to form an envelope and totally “seal” the structure. Then, a gas is introduced into the structure and kept in place for several hours – usually overnight. This will kill all termites and other insects in the structure. The gas leaves no odor or residue and leaves the structure insect free.

ABC’s trained, licensed Inspectors will explain the necessity of this type treatment when applicable.

Do you inspect homes for Wood Destroying Insects (WDIs)?

We make sure we do a thorough job inspecting the home for any wood destroying pests. We will advise you of their presence and provide documentation as required.

What can I do to prevent termites?

It is important that you keep any lumber, dead trees, wood piles, and wood debris in general as far away from the foundations of your home as possible. Termites also like moister wood. So eliminating any standing water on your property, fixing leaky pipes and spigots, and keeping your home well ventilated to prevent moisture buildup all contribute to a termite free residence.

If you are building a new home it is a good idea to have us install Termimesh. Termimesh is 100% effective at keeping termites from invading your home, and can save you money on treatments by installing it from the get-go.

What is a tent fumigation, and when is it needed for termite treatment?

Tent fumigation, or “tenting”, is a highly effective solution for eliminating severe termite infestations. Preparation for fumigation can be extensive, requires thoughtful coordination, and follows strict safety procedures. Tenting a home for termites should always be done by a professional with proper certifications and licensing to ensure safety and effectiveness.

What rules does ABC follow with regards to safety when using fumigant gas for termite treatment?

Safety is our number one priority with any service to your home. We adhere to strict guidelines set forth by the fumigant manufacturer as well as state and federal regulatory agencies. During all structural fumigations, ABC regularly monitors the fumigant levels within the structure and the air outside the structure for efficacy. We use specially designed equipment capable of detecting fumigant levels as low as 1 part per million (ppm). We employ aeration times far exceeding what is required by law and confirm 0 ppm clearance levels multiple times before allowing you and your family to return to your home. Additionally, we follow all manufacturer recommendations, including not fumigating homes with attics enclosed in polyurethane spray foam insulation (PSFI).

We care about our customers, and want them to be informed about products and safe handling practices. For more information about gas treatment and safety measures, visit:
