Here’s how the process works. When you call in, we’ll do our best to assess the situation over the phone so that we can provide you with an estimate. If we’re able to do that, we’ll schedule your first treatment immediately.
Often, however, we find it necessary to schedule a time for one of ABC’s trained inspectors to come out to your property. This is a service we offer at no charge to you where we conduct an in-person inspection to help craft the best possible treatment plan for you, and the most accurate estimate.
Once you sign off on the plan, we can schedule your initial treatment.
Over the years, ABC has grown to become the largest independently-owed and managed pest control company in the entire Lone Star State. We have a team of highly trained pest control technicians who have the skills, equipment and capacity to handle any type of insect, animal or bird infestation in Denton homes and businesses.
That being said, the most common pest issues we deal with here are:
Ask homeowners in Denton which bug they’d least like to encounter in their home and there’s a very high chance that the answer will be cockroaches. They’re creepy, they’re gross and they can cause all kinds of problems: allergies, food and drink contamination and damage to textiles, paper goods and electronics.
Seeing a single roach darting across the kitchen countertop could be an indication of an underlying cockroach infestation you didn’t know about. Since roaches reproduce rapidly, you need to call in trusted pest control professionals as soon as you suspect these bugs might be infesting your home. ABC’s approach to cockroach infestation is designed to eliminate the nest, and targets roaches at all stages of their lifecycle, including eggs.
You may notice that there’s a wasp’s nest hanging somewhere along the eaves or ledges of your house. There are also other situations in which wasps may build their nests in other hard-to-access places like your chimney or attic.
If you come across even a single nest, wasps may sting you, your loved ones, pets, guests and even neighbors. Best case scenario, you’ll be hurting as you recover. If someone has an allergy, though, even one sting could require medical attention.
Call our technicians and they will safely remove the nest, get rid of the wasps and shore up your home against future invaders.
Most of the residents of Denton who have been unfortunate enough to mess around with fire ants wouldn’t want a repeated encounter, and there are plenty of other ant species that can become a nuisance. Some of these ant species may even destroy structures by eating away the wood. Needless to say, no one wants to see a line of ants trailing through their kitchen or bathroom.
ABC’s pros have developed an effective strategy that is specific to the particular ant species infesting a home. In addition to eradicating the problem, we can also educate clients on ways to make their home less friendly to future infestations.
Spider & Scorpion Removal
You’re taking something out of the back of a closet, rummaging in the attic or merely getting something from the garage. Suddenly, you stumble upon a spider or scorpion and get bitten or stung. Usually, this will only result in mild pain that lingers for a couple of hours.
Although there are only a handful of spiders and scorpions in Denton that have venom and are truly dangerous to humans, it’s always wise to call in an expert to get rid of these creatures before they hurt you, your pet or someone that you love.
ABC's technicians are experts in spider and scorpion removal. After clearing away a spider or scorpion infestation, we will work on putting up safeguards in and around your home to prevent future close encounters.
Few things frighten Denton homeowners more than the thought of termites destroying their house from the inside out. Every year, these pests are responsible for billions in damage. But the worst part may be that they can be doing their work for months—or years—before you ever realize it.
The methods ABC uses to control termites in Denton have been scientifically proven to be highly effective in destroying termite colonies, clearing termite infestations and safeguarding homes against future termite attacks. We also provide periodic monitoring to homes to ensure that termites won’t come back.
Overturned trash cans. Nests in the attic. Destroyed belongings. You might think that rodents and other critters are cute if you spot them out in nature, but they are decidedly less so if they invade your home. Worse, rodents are a threat to the safety of a home because they can cause a house fire by chewing through electrical wiring.
Whether you’re dealing with rats, raccoons, opossums, mice, squirrels or other creatures, ABC’s pest pros know how to get these types of wildlife safely off of your property and seal off any entry points to keep them from returning.
Bed bugs used to be largely the problem of hotels and other similar venues. Not today. Infestations have been rising in the US for the past several decades—even in residential areas.
When bedbugs get into your home, they will feed on your blood while you sleep. When they’ve had their fill, these bloodsuckers will hide in the smallest cracks, crevices and other spaces in your bed, beddings, drapes, baseboards and furniture, preventing you from effectively controlling the problem on your own.
That’s where ABC comes in. Our technicians understand how to treat the infestation at its source and get rid of the bugs, wherever they might be hiding. We’ll also share tips on what you can do to prevent future infestations.
Tick & Flea Control
Fleas and ticks love hot, humid areas. With our scorching hot summers, Lake Ray Roberts and Lewisville Lake nearby, Denton is perfectly situated to be a mecca for these pests.
If fleas or ticks are running rampant on your property, you need to tackle the problem at its source or you’ll be dealing with a never-ending infestation. ABC can help.
Another pest drawn to Denton by the friendly climate and ample water, mosquitoes can easily ruin your time in the yard by covering you with itchy bites. But that’s just the beginning. While cases are still relatively rare, mosquitoes are also known vectors for such viruses as West Nile and Zika—not exactly what you want buzzing around your yard or in your home. Especially if the mosquitoes take up residence nearby.
Contact ABC and we will work relentlessly to reduce the mosquito population around your home and eliminate any mosquito breeding grounds we come across on your property. Then, after we’ve got things back under control, we’ll show you things you can do to discourage these pests from returning.
Our experience protecting Texas homes from pests spans a period of over 70 years. Few pest control agencies even come close to matching our standards of care and service delivery.
Because of our many decades of working throughout the state, ABC has developed strategies that are localized and optimized for each area we service—including Denton. The approaches we use are backed by our comprehensive knowledge of local ecosystems, animal behavior and entomology.
ABC’s Signature Service includes:

Solution-focused application of treatment products designed to address the pest problem at its core
The establishment of protective measures around the home to safeguard the property from future pest infestations
Application of preventive treatments to the cracks, crevices and holes that may exist along the exterior of a home

ABC is National Pest Management Association Quality Pro accredited. What does this mean? Our employees undergo a thorough background check and routine testing for drugs. We even monitor the driving records of our technicians.
Why do we do all these things? So that you know you have nothing to worry about when you let any one of our representatives into your home.
Furthermore, we have a team of in-house trainers who ensure that ABC technicians are kept abreast of recent advances in pest control science, technology and industry best practices. This way, ABC always delivers our services to meet the highest standards of excellence.
ABC is family-owned and run. We not only value family, but also are deeply concerned with the well-being of the households and communities that we serve. That’s why all our products are carefully selected.
Specifically, we only use products that have been created and approved for use in residential settings. Moreover, ABC technicians only use products that have been designed to affect specific pests.
Additionally, we welcome and encourage feedback from our customers. If you have any concerns about our methods or products, please feel free to bring them up so that we may address them.
As mentioned above, during our preliminary inspection we will devise a customized plan for you. This essentially becomes a reference guide that details the process and the length of time we expect it will take us to resolve your pest problem.
One thing to note: you may notice an unusual increase in pest activity after the first few treatments. This is normal. It indicates that these creatures are being pushed from their usual hiding spots and trying to find new places to relocate.
As you continue treatment, pest activity will diminish gradually until it disappears completely.
