Yes, we do! ABC’s pest control services begin with a free inspection, so that we can customize a treatment plan for your property and the unwanted insects or critters you’re dealing with. In certain cases, we can even provide an over-the-phone estimate.
Typically, we prefer to schedule an inspection so one of our pest control professionals can meet you at your home and get a better understanding of the problem. During this in-person meeting, you can expect your pest control professional to:
- Ask you about the pest activity you’ve noticed around your home and yard.
- Identify which species of pest is present, if applicable.
- Assess the extent of the infestation and take note of any pest-related damage.
- Determine if there are any unique factors that make your home more susceptible to a pest infestation.
- Answer any of your questions about the pests on your property or our treatment protocols.
Upon completion of the inspection process, we will present you with an estimate for our treatment services. When we receive your approval, we’ll schedule your first appointment.
ABC has been providing pest control for over 70 years, which has provided us with the opportunity to help homeowners and business owners with every type of pest problem. Although our highly trained professionals can help with whatever pest you have on your property, we most commonly receive calls regarding the following types of pest control.
Cockroaches have been around for millions of years and are one of the most resilient pests on the planet. Capable of surviving off of nearly any type of organic material, these creatures are prolific breeders. These characteristics help explain why cockroaches issues can turn into such a headache for homeowners to deal with on their own. ABC’s knowledgeable technicians know where to find roach resting areas and all the other spaces these pests like to hide. Moreover, our treatment options are designed to target both eggs as well as adult roaches.
Wasps deliver painful stings, making it difficult to leave your home if they nest in the eaves of your doorways, in your sheds or near your patios and decks. To make matters worse, there can be further health complications if you or a family member is allergic to wasp stings. If you are looking to rid your property of wasps, you can rely on ABC. Our experienced technicians can treat or remove these nests and then recommend ways to make your home and yard less attractive to these creatures.
Ants are among the most common insects on Earth, but we'd often prefer they remain outside rather than in our homes and building mounds in our yards. Depending on the species of ant that is on your property, these pests can bite, contaminate food, damage the wood that makes up your home or even create issues with your electrical system. Fire ants, in particular, are quite a problem for Mesquite homeowners. ABC's skilled technicians know the best, most-effective treatments depending on the species in order to provide swift results.
Spider & Scorpion Control
Spiders and scorpions are two creatures that most homeowners would rather avoid. Our encounters with them are usually a surprise—sometimes to both parties. We can disturb a spider or scorpion when in dark spaces, including the attic, or in back corners of our garages and closets. Unless you’ve spent time learning about all the different varieties of spiders in Texas, it can be hard to determine which type you’re seeing and whether it is venomous. And, unfortunately, there are two species you need to keep an eye out for—black widows and brown recluses. And while not fatal, a sting from a scorpion can be quite painful.
The professionals at ABC will identify the species on your property and address specific issues you’re having. Our technicians will also make recommendations on how to prevent encounters with these pests in the future.
These "silent destroyers" travel through underground tunnels and feast on the wood that makes up the foundation of your home. Their elusive nature often means major damage can occur before you even realize a colony is nearby. Numbering in the millions and constantly eating, termites are responsible for billions of damage to U.S. homes annually. ABC’s professionals will inspect for subterranean termites in hard-to-reach areas and conduct a thorough property examination. We will identify activity and damage, and then quickly follow up with proven treatments. Savvy homeowners choose to protect their biggest investment by signing up for ABC's termite monitoring program.
Bigger animals, including mice, rats, possums and raccoons, can create major problems for homeowners. Rodents and wildlife can make large messes, damage belongings, contaminate food and transmit diseases. These pests can also be more intimidating to deal with, due to their large size. Thankfully, the specialists at ABC know just what to do to remove your uninvited houseguests and safeguard you from any possible future encounters.
Bed bugs can fit into even the tiniest of crevices in your home and can go long periods of time without feeding. After a blood meal from you or a member of your household in the middle of the night, these pests will burrow deep into whatever surface they are hiding in, such as in the folds of your mattress or furniture. Bed bugs are one of the most difficult pests to eradicate, which makes most infestations prolonged, exacting a huge emotional toll. If you’re ready to get a good night’s sleep, contact the specialists at ABC. We will implement effective treatments to get your bed bug problem under control.
Fleas are prolific, so an infestation can seem to appear out of nowhere. The incessant itching that comes along with a flea infestation can be miserable for both pets and homeowners and can even lead to infections. Even though ticks don't necessarily infest homes, having a single tick on your property has can put you at risk for contracting illnesses, including Lyme disease. What makes DIY treatments largely ineffective is that different types of products are required for each stage of these pests’ life cycles. ABC flea and tick specialists are trained on how to implement a whole-property approach, so your problem can be addressed and you can feel comfortable knowing the likelihood of reinfestation is low.
Not only can mosquitoes ruin a great outdoor evening, but these biting insects can also pose health risks by having the potential to transmit the Zika virus and West Nile virus. These insects are in our yards a majority of the year because of our longer-than-average summers and humid conditions. ABC's proven methods effectively target mosquitoes and make your outdoor spaces liveable again.
