Depending on the type of pest you are dealing with, we may be able to provide you with an estimate on the phone.
In some situations, we recommend setting up an appointment with one of our trained inspectors so that we can conduct an in-person inspection get a better idea of the severity and extent of your particular infestation. After this evaluation is complete, we can provide you with a recommended treatment plan.
After you have a chance to review and approve this no-obligation, complimentary estimate, we can begin working on your pest issue.
As the largest independently-owned and operated pest control company in the entire state of Texas, ABC has technicians with the experience and training to deal with nearly any type of insect or animal invasion.
After conducting a thorough inspection, ABC can provide you with an individualized treatment plan including one or more of the following services:
Wasps have an unfortunate tendency of making nests in and around the eaves and ledges along the exterior of homes, and even inside chimneys and attics. When they do, your loved ones, guests and neighbors are at risk of a sting if they accidentally disturb a nest. While this can be a painful experience, a brush with a wasp can turn into a medical emergency in the case of a wasp sting allergy. ABC’s knowledgeable technicians will remove any nests in problem areas and help protect your family from danger in the future.
Most Texans have had encounters they’d rather not repeat with fire ants which ended with swollen, painful welts. Out in the yard, these invasive ants build unsightly mounds, and colonies can number up to half a million members. Indoors, different types of ants can become a problem as they search for food and water in your bathrooms or your kitchen. ABC’s pros can implement a targeted strategy based on which species are giving you trouble to remove these creatures and implement measures to help keep ants in their natural habitat and away from yours.
Spider & Scorpion Removal
Sometimes the most destructive pests are those that are almost invisible to many homeowners. Dubbed “silent destroyers”, termites feast on the wood that makes up your home and arrive unseen, via underground tunnels. Responsible for an estimated one billion dollars of structural damage to U.S. homes annually, termites often do significant harm before homeowners even realize they have a problem. If you suspect you may have a termite problem, go straight to the professionals at ABC. Our experienced technicians can quickly eliminate the entire colony using scientifically-proven methods and perform regular monitoring to make sure your home remains protected. Since the best way to protect your largest investment is to perform periodic monitoring, ABC can do this for you as well, even if you haven’t had a termite problem in the past, so you can rest easy that your home is secure.
Some pests aren’t small—in fact, they can be bigger than a beloved pet! These larger pests with powerful jaws, nimble fingers and a hearty appetite can wreak havoc on your household when they overturn trash cans, make a nest in your attic, damage your belongings, leave behind potentially harmful waste materials and chew through electrical wiring, which can lead to a house fire. Even worse, rats, mice, raccoons, opossums, squirrels and even birds can introduce other smaller pests, including ticks and fleas. ABC’s rodent control team will track down these pesky pests and get them off your property. When we are sure all these critters are gone, we’ll locate and seal all the possible entry points around your property so you’ll be safeguarded against future invasions.
Tick & Flea Control
The number of reported cases of flea and tick-borne illnesses has skyrocketed across the country, and the Arlington area is no exception. Fleas can infest your home and make your furry companions miserable, especially if they contract flea bite dermatitis. Although you won’t have to worry about ticks invading your home, just one bite can leave the victim with debilitating conditions, including Lyme disease.
What makes fleas and ticks particularly challenging is that these parasites can easily come back inside when pets or a loved one return from spending time in the yard. To make matters worse, treatments that work on adults may not work on eggs. That’s where ABC can help. Our in-depth knowledge of pest behavior can help inform a treatment program to keep these pests from posing a health danger to your household.
Mosquitoes can make spending time in our yard miserable during certain months of the year here in Arlington. What we don’t often consider is the serious diseases that these annoying pests transmit, including the Zika and West Nile viruses. You’ll be able to enjoy time out in the fresh air again with the help of ABC, which can install targeted, tested devices to eliminate breeding grounds and reduce your mosquito population significantly.
With over 70 years of protecting Texas homeowners from pests, ABC has the localized knowledge to understand what approaches work best here in the Arlington area. Our comprehensive knowledge of animal behavior, local ecosystems and entomology form the foundation of the work we do every day.

You may see an uptick in pest activity initially while these creatures are being driven out of their normal hiding spots. Over time, your pest activity will decrease until we are sure that we have successfully met the goals set out in your treatment plan.
