Many of our customers want help as fast as possible, so we always gather the information we need to determine the type and extent of the problem when you first reach out. If we believe we can diagnose your problem without an in-person inspection, we’ll give you an estimate and schedule your first treatment right away.
However, the best way to get a truly accurate assessment of the situation and how much it will cost you to get rid of your problem is often to first to set up an appointment with an ABC inspector. We will come to your home or property and assess the severity and nature of the pest infestation at no cost to you.
During this inspection, the inspector will put together a customized treatment plan for your unique situation along with a complimentary, no-obligation estimate. After you approve it, we can schedule your first treatment appointment immediately.

Some of the most common pest issues we deal with in and around McKinney include:
Cockroaches are one of McKinney’s most common household pests, and you need to get rid of them fast. Why? Because bad things happen when cockroaches invade a home since they can contaminate food and drinks, transmit illnesses, cause damage to electronics and appliances and destroy clothes and textiles.
Worse? A single sighting of a cockroach can mean that there are many more hiding in your home. To keep your roach population from getting out of hand, you need to act fast. ABC experts know how to flush cockroaches from their hiding spots and destroy both active adults and their eggs.
Wasps are relatively common in Texas, and you don’t have to travel far in McKinney to come across one. That doesn’t mean you want them around your house, though! As homeowners know, wasp stings hurt, and if someone in your household is allergic, even a single sting can result in a medical emergency.
Our technicians have the knowledge, experience and skills to protect any home from the threat of wasps. We know that wasps often build nests along the exterior eaves and ledges of a home, and in some cases, they may even build inside your house—especially if you have a chimney or attic.
Give us a call and we’ll remove any wasps and nests present, then show you what you can do to “wasp-proof” your home going forward.
As every McKinney resident knows, encounters with fire ants are not pleasant. But other types of ants aren’t necessarily better. Some can even cause damage by eating away the wood in your house.
Thankfully, ABC has developed effective strategies to get rid of all types of ants and keep them out of your home and yard. Get in touch and we’ll create a unique treatment plan for your home based on what we find during our initial inspection.
Spider & Scorpion Removal
An encounter with a scorpion or spider may occur almost anywhere in your McKinney home. You might be outside in the yard or inside as you rummage through the attic. Luckily, only a few spider and scorpion varieties pose any significant danger to humans.
All the same, it’s always wise to call in an ABC specialist once you see one of these critters in your home.
Our technicians will identify the invading scorpions or spiders accurately, then devise the most effective way of getting them out of your home. We will additionally seal off your house to keep them from getting in again.
Billions of dollars every year. That’s the staggering amount that termites cost U.S. homeowners.
How is this possible? Termites do their damage secretly and quietly. Often, people don’t discover they have a problem until the invaders have been eating away at their house for months or years.
If you worry that you’re seeing signs of a termite infestation, call us right away. Our experienced termite control experts know how to eliminate a termite problem quickly and effectively. After we get rid of the termites, we can set up provide periodic monitoring of your property to make sure the problem doesn’t recur.
Unfortunately, it’s far too common here for people to suffer problems with squirrels, rats, mice, raccoons, opossums and other unwanted wildlife visitors. Typically, the larger the pest, the greater its potential to cause damage in your home.
Big pest problems require experienced pest control specialists. ABC has the equipment, skills, expertise and qualified technicians to get rid of pesky rodents and other larger intruders. Once we get them out, we’ll look for and seal off any points of entry that might be used by the animals to get into your home, and show you how to make your property less friendly to them.
Increased travel and denser communities are some of the key culprits behind the rampant spread of bed bugs in the U.S. over the past few decades. If you’re dealing with an infestation, you don’t care about any of that—you just want these pesky pests out of your house!
Sadly, DIY approaches do not have much of an impact on these bloodsuckers, so you need professional intervention. ABC’s experts know how to find bed bugs wherever they’re hiding, then deliver targeted treatment solutions to completely eliminate them from your house.
Tick & Flea Control
Unfortunately, in recent years, the number of people and pets who catch diseases from these types of pests has been rising. If you don’t catch the critters fast enough, a seemingly small problem can quickly turn into a large-scale home invasion.
At ABC, we understand the need for comprehensive flea and tick treatment. You need to completely remove these parasites and take steps to prevent them from getting back into your household, and ABC has the technicians who can do just that.
Everyone in McKinney knows that spending time in your yard during certain months can be a nightmare because of the mosquitoes. That’s just a fact of life here. Sometimes, though, mosquitoes don’t just annoy homeowners when they’re cooking on the grill—they actually set up shop on their property.
If you have a real infestation, it’s important to deal with is as soon as possible. Beyond the frustration of getting bitten, sometimes mosquitoes can transmit dangerous viruses like West Nile and Zika.
When you report to us that you have a mosquito problem, we will come in and employ countermeasures that destroy mosquito breeding grounds, prevent mosquitoes from getting into your house and encourage them to head elsewhere.
