A small percentage of customers have their pest issue resolved after a single treatment. Most infestations tend to require at least a few scheduled services from our technicians. And in some cases, it may be necessary to set up ongoing treatments to keep the problem population at bay.
That’s a long way of saying that every issue is different, which is why the first thing we do after you call us is set up a time for an inspector to come to your property. They will assess the nature and extent of the problem you’re dealing with.
Once they do this, they will put together a personalized treatment plan based on what they discover. As soon as you agree to a plan, we can typically schedule your first treatment in 3-4 days.
Generally speaking, if you have a pest control issue, we can help.
Some of the most common services we provide to Humble homeowners include:
Dengue. Malaria. West Nile virus. Yellow fever. Those are just four of the many diseases that mosquitoes can carry and transmit. Plus, mosquito bites are annoying and itchy. Point is, the last thing you want is mosquitoes setting up their own little village on your property. If you can’t go in your own backyard without getting attacked by a swarm, reach out to ABC. Our experienced technicians not only have the tools and skill to thin out their ranks and chase them away, but also they can help you implement changes to your environment that will keep them from returning.
Most people think that roaches are dirty and gross, and that’s enough of a reason to kick them out if they creep into your house. But it goes way beyond that. Did you know that they contaminate food and spread bacteria? That they can increase any issues you have with allergies, asthma and other respiratory problems? As soon as you see one roach scamper away into the dark when you turn on a light, get in touch with us. ABC Home & Commercial pest control technicians know how to take out roaches at the source—by finding and destroying the nest.
When termites invade your home, you’ll not only have lost what’s likely your largest investment without your even knowing it, but also the literal roof over your head. If you have even the slightest worry that termites have invaded your home, get in touch with ABC. We’ll send out an inspector who will confirm if you have a problem, determine the source and the extent of the damage and quickly formulate a plan to help you deal with it—before it gets worse.
Bed Bug Treatment
It’s bad enough when pests like mosquitoes attack every time you step out of your home, or when you discover a line of ants marching through your kitchen to get at some cookie crumbs your kids left behind. But bugs that attack you while you’re sleeping in bed? Unfortunately, that’s exactly what happens when you get a bed bug infestation. Unfortunately, it’s just as terrible as it sounds. Worse, they spread quickly, and they’re tough to get rid of. So, don’t take chances. Our professional pest control technicians understand what techniques work to stomp out the infestation, clear out eggs and make changes to the environment to prevent another problem from occurring.
Wildlife & Rodent Control
Few things are more disturbing than listening to something scampering through your walls or attic at night, but if you get an infestation of mice, rats, squirrels, raccoons, possums or some other critter, the noise will be the least of your worries. That's because they tend to leave droppings. Contaminate your food. Carry diseases. Chew through wood and wires. Some of them will even attack if you surprise them. You need to get these creatures out of your home in a way that’s safe for you and humane for them. In most cases, you need to do it fast to prevent even more uninvited guests from taking up residence on your property. That’s where ABC comes in. Our trained professionals know a variety of removal techniques and will work with you to “critter-proof” your house so they won’t bother you again.
Wasp & Bee Removal
It’s not that you want wasps and bees dead—they do a lot of good, helpful things. When they set up shop in or near your home, however, something needs to be done. At ABC, we know methods that allow us to safely relocate bees and wasps without causing harm, and we’ll make sure that any holes or cracks that might look appealing are sealed up tight.
Ants are a fact of life here in Humble and all around the great state of Texas. They’re inescapable. Just because you can’t completely eradicate them doesn’t mean you should have to deal with them inside your home. Or that you should let your lawn be overtaken by them. Unfortunately, a lot of the DIY methods on the market are kind of like playing Whack-a-mole. You take out one ant hill and three others pop up nearby. It becomes a never-ending battle. People call us when they want to end the cycle. We get ants to leave by killing off as many colonies as possible, then implementing measures that make your home and yard inhospitable for them.
Tick & Flea Exterminator
One of the most frustrating things about the otherwise fantastic climate in Humble is that it’s absolutely perfect for fleas and ticks pretty much the entire year-round. If your dog or cat gets a hitchhiker or two while outside, it won’t be long before your entire house is infected. Over-the-counter methods and frequent washing will help, but some infestations just can’t be tamed in this way. If you’re struggling with fleas or ticks, don’t hesitate to give us a call. Our technicians take a holistic approach that will rid you of the pests and help you guard your house against them going forward.
Scorpion & Spider Removal
Even if you’re not particularly afraid of spiders or scorpions, there are still good reasons to keep them out of your home. Top of the list is the fact that there are several venomous species in the area dangerous to humans: black widows, brown recluse spiders and striped bark scorpions. If you’re like most people, you might not know exactly how to recognize whether the spider or scorpion in front of you is dangerous—especially when you have a quick unwelcome encounter. Be safe rather than sorry. Contact ABC and have one of our experienced technicians show you how to tell if you’re dealing with a dangerous infestation. If you are, we’ll help you deal with it before anyone gets hurt.
As demand for low impact pest control options has grown, ABC has responded by establishing Chem-Free Organic Pest Control. While both ABC and Chem-Free use Integrated Pest Management (IPM) to guide the creation of our treatment plans, Chem-Free places a higher priority on what minor modifications can be made to your environment to make it less attractive to pests, both now and in the future. Some measures your Chem-Free technician might recommend include cutting back tall hedges where pests can hide or addressing common problem areas for the accumulation of moisture around your property. Chem-Free’s dedication to a lower impact approach has resulted in the company becoming GreenPro certified, a distinction that sets Chem-free apart from 99% of existing pest control companies in the U.S.
While we always strive to offer fair and affordable prices for our services, there’s usually not an easy way for us to give you a number without actually seeing the problem for ourselves. That’s why we prefer to send an inspector out to take a look and come up with a recommended treatment plan. Once you agree to the plan, we can schedule your initial treatment.
Once in a while, our technicians can completely remove an infestation in one visit. More commonly, it will take at least a few treatments. Sometimes the problem is so severe that the inspector or technician may recommend you continue to receive ongoing treatment.
We will be able to estimate the number and frequency of treatments that your issue requires after inspecting your property and assessing the problem.
The number one priority of ABC Home & Commercial Services is customer safety. We never want to do anything that could potentially be risky for you or your loved ones. It’s why all of our employees undergo background checks and extensive training. It’s also why we only use products that are intended for use in residential areas, carefully selecting treatments that will only have the most minimal impact on pets, people and the environment.
We know there’s a huge difference between clearing out an infestation in a residential neighborhood and handling commercial pest control issues. That’s why we employ an entire team of pest control professionals who have been specially trained to tackle ongoing commercial pest control for various industries, including stores, restaurants, apartment complexes, hotels, and medical facilities.
