Unfortunately, there’s no simple answer to this question. It depends on a number of factors. Some of them you have little control over, such as the type of pest or pests you’re dealing with and the extent of the problem. One you do have control over, though, is how quickly you get in touch.
As soon as you do, we will send an inspector out to your property at the earliest possible time so he or she can craft a unique treatment plan based on their assessment of the problem. Once you sign off on the plan, we are typically able to schedule your initial treatment within 3-4 days.

Combine our warm, humid weather with Lake Houston, and Kingwood is a mosquito mecca. Especially in the hotter months, it’s difficult to go more than a few steps without having to deal with mosquitoes. Still, there’s a huge difference between having mosquitoes in your neighborhood and suffering an infestation in your backyard. At ABC, our knowledgeable professionals have the tools and experience necessary to help you get these pests out of your space and keep them from coming back.
There are many wonderful benefits to living close to a large population center like Houston, but one huge drawback is that roaches always congregate where there are big groups of people. This is particularly unfortunate because these pests spread bacteria and sickness wherever they go. If you want to keep them off your property and out of your home, professional help is a must. At ABC, we arm our pest control professionals with the best possible treatment options, designed to help them locate and eradicate the nest itself so that the problem won’t reoccur.
Unlike most of the creatures on this list, termites don’t cause people any physical harm. What they will do, though, is utterly destroy your home by eating it from the inside out. Worse, they often remain undetected for months or years, racking up damage while you go about your regular life. ABC Home & Commercial can help you prevent this from happening by regularly conducting termite checks and helping you to termite-proof your home. And if you do discover an infestation, we can help you tackle it at the source and keep it from getting worse.
Bed Bug Treatment
While Kingwood itself has few tourists, many people here travel quite a bit for a variety of reasons. This matters where bed bugs are concerned. All it takes is one or two of them to hitch a ride back home with you for an infestation to blossom. Don’t trust DIY solutions to solve the problem for you, because if you don’t get all of them the first time, it won’t be long before you’re dealing with the issue again. At ABC, we know how to stop bed bugs from spreading and get rid of them for good.
Wildlife & Rodent Control
They call this area the “Livable Forest” for a reason. All kinds of critters thrive here, and it can be amazing if you’re out with your kids and spot a family of deer or hummingbirds. But there’s a flip side to that coin as well: wildlife pests. Raccoons and possums. Mice and rats. Squirrels and skunks. You name it, Kingwood has it. Most of the time it’s possible to live in harmony with these creatures, but you must draw the line at your house. If they start targeting your property or manage to get inside, you can find yourself dealing with droppings, fleas, chewed wires, contaminated food and worse. ABC technicians know how to remove these creatures humanely and address environmental factors on your property to keep them from coming back.
Wasp & Bee Removal
Sure, bees and wasps do a lot of beneficial things. That doesn’t mean you want them to set up shop in your yard or house, though. We use the latest, safest techniques to remove wasp and bee populations from your property. Then we address any structural concerns that could lead to further infestations in the future, such as holes and crevices that might serve as ways for bees and wasps to enter your home.
There’s no real way to totally get rid of the ants in Kingwood, but you shouldn’t let them overrun you, either. ABC Home & Commercial Services can help you get them out of your house and greatly reduce their population on your property by making the area as unfriendly to them as possible.
Tick & Flea Exterminator
Constant scratching. Rashes. Lyme disease. These are the things you have to worry about when fleas and ticks decide your property looks like a nice place to live. Our experienced professionals not only know how to target and kill existing flea and tick populations, but also can show you how to make changes in and around your home to discourage them from coming back in the future.
Scorpion & Spider Removal
There are really only three species of spiders and scorpions that people need to worry about in Kingwood: brown recluses, black widows and striped bark scorpions. So why are people so afraid of these pests? Two reasons: 1) the species mentioned above are incredibly dangerous—even deadly, and 2) most people don’t know how to tell “safe” spiders and scorpions from the dangerous ones. That’s where ABC comes in. If you ever see a spider or scorpion you’re not sure about, get in touch. We can show you how to recognize “problem” species and help you remove them if they pose a danger.
Unfortunately, there’s no one easy answer to that question, because costs differ depending on the type and extent of the infestation. However, we can promise two things:
- We strive to keep our prices affordable, and
- We always provide clients with a personalized treatment plan that includes the estimated cost before there is ever any charge. Once you read over the recommended services, you can decide whether you approve the esimate.
Every problem is different, so the solutions are always just a bit different. This is why we always provide an inspection and recommended treatment plan before starting service.
Rarely, we are able to take care of a pest issue in one visit. Most of the time, however, dealing with an infestation requires multiple treatments in order to completely eradicate the problem. Our inspector may even recommend ongoing treatment for truly severe pest issues.
We use products that are intended for residential use and have been carefully chosen due to the minimal impact they have on people, pets and the environment. In addition, we train our technicians to use the lowest possible concentrations of products and take great care when applying them.
Still worried? Give us a call at (281) 730-9500. We’re always happy to chat with potential customers and do what we can to ease your mind about the products we use.
There’s a big difference between dealing with an infestation in a residential neighborhood and a commercial property, and we’ve been successfully handling both types of jobs for years. When a commercial customer calls us about a pest problem, we send out pest control technicians that have been specially trained to deal with infestations in commercial facilities. We include among our commercial clients pretty much every type of property you can imagine—retail stores, hotels, apartment buildings, hospitals, and more.
Yes. Beyond pest control, ABC Home & Commercial's Houston branch is able to handle a whole host of common home and commercial property needs, including:
How’s your AC system doing? If you’re tired of struggling through hot Kingwood summers with an older model that just can’t keep up and is in continual need of repair, ABC can help.
We know getting a new AC unit is no small expense, so when you reach out to us, we’ll go over a pro and con list with you, comparing the cost of a new system and the savings you’ll achieve due to increased energy efficiency against what you have to pay to repair your current system (again) and the higher power bills you now pay.
To ease your mind, ABC also offers one-year warranties on all AC units we sell.
As every Kingwood resident knows, once the calendar rolls around to the hotter months (otherwise known as about half the year), air conditioning systems are pretty much constantly running. This can lead to problems, even in systems that are only a few years old, and fixing AC issues isn’t something non-professionals should attempt.
ABC will schedule a technician to come out as soon as possible if you call us after a problem happens, but we suggest an even better solution: stop issues before they occur. How? By opting for our Preferred Service Plan. Subscribers enjoy frequent maintenance evaluations, get discounts on parts if there ever is a problem and qualify for priority scheduling—something that can matter a lot when everyone is dealing with AC issues during the hottest part of the year.
Lawn Care Services
Lawns seem so easy from the outside looking in, don’t they? After all, they’re just big squares of grass, with maybe a few bushes, flowers and trees thrown in for good measure. Once they’re established, they pretty much sustain themselves.
Except every homeowner knows the reality: Keeping your lawn lush, green and looking good is a huge job that can take up lots of time. You have to mow it. Water it. Fertilize it. Do edging. Prune plants and trees. The list goes on.
Depending on the size of your yard, it can easily become a full-time job.
So why not turn the job over to the people who do it as a profession? At ABC, our lawn care professionals can do all the things mentioned above, in addition to:
- Dealing with lawn pests
- Designing and implementing a landscape plan for you
- Giving your current landscaping a facelift with hardscaping, walkways and more
ABC technicians can handle all of your pool needs, including:
We brush, skim, wash, vacuum, clean debris from pump baskets and skimmers and conduct acid washes (if needed) to get rid of calcium residue.
We keep your pool chemicals balanced (chlorine, pH, alkalinity, cyanuric acid and calcium hardness), remodel, replaster, repair pool decks and conduct manufacturer-recommended maintenance tasks designed to catch small issues before they get bigger.
We can help with coping, tiling, installing lighting ladders, equipment, water features and pool decks.
