ABC applies the principles of Integrated Pest Management (IPM) into every pest control treatment plan we create. We have been providing pest control for over 70 years and have developed an internal pest control training program based on what we’ve learned over the years. This extensive training program relays all of the important information we have learned about pest habits and behaviors to all our technicians. This extensive body of knowledge has also informed the Signature Service we offer our customers.
Our Signature Service includes:
- an inspection of your property so we can take note of any changes that may make you more vulnerable to a pest infestation;
- an application of a preventative product, when needed;
- the creation of a barrier against pests by administering a targeted product along the exterior of your home;
- a dusting of preventative products around weep holes, air conditioning lines and other potential pest entry points;
- installation of copper wool to prevent pests from entering your home through any cracks and crevices and
- examining your attic and crawl space to determine if you’ll need any additional treatments.
ABC is proud to be a QualityPro accredited business. To hold this credential, we have a stringent hiring process in place. This hiring process includes conducting driving record checks, drug tests and background checks on all applicants. Additionally, all specialists go through regular testing and training to ensure all of our team members are providing our customers with high-quality services.
Each pest problem is unique. At ABC, we understand that in order to create the most effective treatment plan, we must tailor the solution to your specific problem. We offer free inspections and estimates to our customers. In some cases, we’re even able to offer these estimates over the phone. However, in most cases, we prefer to get a better understanding of the problem in person before creating an estimate.
If an in-person inspection makes the most sense, you can expect your pest control professional to meet you at your home and:
- ask you about what you’ve been experiencing;
- conduct an initial inspection of your property to locate pest hiding spots, potential pest entry points and any pest-related damage;
- determine if there are any structural issues or environmental factors that may make your property more susceptible to a pest infestation and
- give you an opportunity to ask any questions you may have about the pests or our what our treatment process entails.
To wrap up the inspection, your specialist will present you with a customized estimate. When we receive your approval, we will schedule your first treatment call.

How often does ABC need to treat my home?
We create every pest control treatment plan with a consideration of environmental factors, structural issues and other unique challenges to your property. This means that every treatment plan is unique and there is no one answer to this question. To finish up your inspection, your ABC pest control professional will determine how many treatments are needed to adequately control the pests on your property.
Typically, the number of treatments required is based on the type of pest, the time of year the infestation has taken place, the extent of the infestation and any other unique factors. While we understand that most homeowners would like to hear that their pest problems will be resolved in just a few visits, we typically recommend multiple treatments to ensure the problem has been fully controlled.
We understand that having a pest problem can cause a large disruption to your life. To prevent future problems, we typically suggest that our customers sign up for our ongoing preventative treatment plan. What’s great about this plan is that it keeps pest populations low throughout the year. Better yet, we can provide outdoor-only treatments. This means you can run errands, go for a jog at Allen Station Park or drop your kids off at soccer practice at Celebration Park while we’re treating your property.
