After over 60 years serving homeowners, ABC has implemented solutions to control every imaginable household and yard pest. Our pros can tackle even the toughest pest problems. We commonly help Katy homeowners get rid of:
These bloodthirsty insects not only keep us from enjoying our outdoor spaces, but also can transmit deadly diseases including the Zika and West Nile viruses. ABC customers can choose from a variety of mosquito control measures, including preventative treatments to address potential breeding sites, localized sprays to attack mosquitoes hiding out in your lawn and no-hassle mister stations to automatically apply diluted insecticide at regular intervals to keep mosquitoes away.
There are few more unwelcome sights late at night than a roach scurrying across your kitchen or bathroom floor. Since cockroaches reproduce quickly, once you have seen one roach, you can quickly have an infestation on your hands if you don’t take action quickly. These resilient pests prove very difficult for homeowners to handle on their own, especially in Katy, since our humid conditions provide cockroaches the moisture they need to survive. Once they are established, roaches can contaminate your food with disease-causing bacteria.
Although bed bugs have been around for centuries, these tiny, blood-sucking insects have only recently become a problem in Katy and the rest of the country. Capable of hiding in the smallest of crevices in cracks, these pests can hitch a ride into your home on suitcases, clothing, purses and furniture. Once they make their way inside your home, bed bugs are incredibly difficult for homeowners to get rid of on their own. While you are sleeping, bed bugs feed on your blood, which can lead to extremely itchy, red bites that can be easily infected and which can trigger an allergic reaction.
Although many pests can do damage to your home, termites are the most destructive. Colonies can contain up to one million termites which feast on the wood of your home, sometimes leading to significant damage to your foundation. Termite infestations often go undetected for long periods of time, since these creatures can enter your home through subterranean tunnels and tubes made of mud and saliva.
Although ants are small in size, their bites can be quite painful. Ants in the kitchen or the bathroom can be a nuisance, but fire ants in the backyard can be a bigger problem for your children and pets.
It’s not just small insects that can make their way into our homes and do damage in our yards. Rats, mice, raccoons and other small animals can chew on wooden structures and electronics, transmit diseases, contaminate our food and leave behind a mess.
Fleas & Ticks
Despite their small size, a flea or tick problem can easily disrupt your entire household. Your family and your pets can suffer from irritating and itchy flea bites, and a tick can be responsible for much more serious health problems, such as Lyme disease. The experts at ABC can conduct a thorough examination of your property to come up with a treatment plan to eradicate these tiny pests.
Katy homeowners can encounter a variety of eight-legged visitors, but the two species that are the most dangerous are black widows and brown recluse spiders. All spiders have venom, and all are poisonous to some degree, so it’s best to bring in the experts rather than risk a painful bite.
Seeing a bee every now and then in the garden is fine for most homeowners. But once you see a swarm, you may have a problem on your hands. Hives that become crowded split into separate colonies. As scouts look for new places to establish a nest, bees can seek shelter in small cracks or crevices along your home’s exterior or on or around unused lawn equipment or appliances. In addition to the damage bees can cause, your family and pets are at risk of getting stung if bees are hanging around your property, which can be especially dangerous if anyone is allergic.
As a response to the growing demand for green pest control here in Katy, ABC has launched Chem-Free Organic Pest Control. While both ABC and Chem-Free use the same principles of Integrated Pest Management (IPM) in our treatment plans, Chem-Free takes an even more holistic approach when designing treatment plans for your home. When you choose Chem-Free, we start by modifying your environment to make it less attractive to pests, only resorting to chemical interventions when necessary. Our dedication to a lower-impact approach allows us to be Green-Pro certified, a distinction that separates Chem-free from 99% of pest control companies in the U.S.
If you have a pest problem, you can take advantage of ABC’s free inspection to decide what’s the best course of action. During this preliminary inspection, our experienced technicians will:
Gather more from you about the pest problem you are having
Inspect your home, inside and out, for signs of an infestation and for any related damage
Recommend a course of treatment that’s customized to your home and needs
Once you have had a chance to approve the recommendations from our pros, you can schedule your first treatment immediately. We do everything we can to work around your schedule and get a technician onto your property within three to five business days.
Once you have completed your round of treatments, Katy homeowners can choose ongoing maintenance to help avoid any future pest problems.
At ABC, our highest priority is keeping you, your family and your pets safe. That means that we only use products which get the job done while minimizing any potential risks. In addition, our technicians carefully apply products directly to areas where pests are hiding in low concentrations. Customers can request to see the Material Safety Data Sheets on any of our treatments to learn more about how we will be treating your home.
