We recognize that when a homeowner suspects there is a pest problem, he or she doesn’t want to wait long for treatments to begin. That’s why once you contact us, we’ll look for the first opportunity to have an inspector meet you at your home to take a closer look at what’s going on. At the conclusion of that visit, the inspector will provide you with an estimate for recommended next steps for you to approve. Once we hear back from you, the first service call can be scheduled.
ABC has been serving the greater Houston area since 1985, which has given our technicians extensive experience in dealing with any kind of pest problem homeowners might have, both inside your house and out in your yard.
Homeowners in League City routinely call upon our pest specialists to help with:
League City’s periodic heavy rainfall, combined with our humid conditions, unfortunately make for the perfect environment for many species of mosquito to breed. Spending time outside when you are constantly battling mosquitoes can make you miserable, not to mention the fact that several types of mosquitoes here in Houston can spread diseases,
including the Zika and West Nile viruses. ABC’s pros can give you a few options of what would work best for your property so you can enjoy time in your yard again.
Houston won the unfortunate distinction of having the second largest percentage of households in the entire nation to report evidence of roaches, according to the 2015 American Housing Survey. In addition to inspiring disgust across League City, cockroaches can aggravate existing allergies, contaminate food, transmit salmonella and other bacteria and even destroy paper and textile products. These highly adaptive creatures can subsist on almost any kind of organic matter, so even the cleanest homes are vulnerable to an infestation. ABC’s skilled technicians can identify where in your home cockroaches are nesting and breeding to target treatments to eliminate both roaches and their eggs.
Termites live in colonies that can have a million members and feed upon the building block of wood: cellulose. Subterranean termites tunnel underground to reach your home’s foundation, so you may not find out about an infestation until structural damage has already been considerable. ABC’s termite experts are highly knowledgeable about this pest’s behavior, so they know exactly where to look for these dangerous pests and how to quickly kill the members of a colony before further damage can be done. After the infestation is handled, ABC will apply a treatment solution to your soil to help protect your home’s foundation from any more invasions.
Bed Bug Treatment
One of the reasons scientists believe that populations of bed bugs have exploded across the country is that our travel patterns have increased. Bed bugs feed on human blood, often while we are sleeping, and then retreat into very narrow cracks in our bedding, floor, baseboards and walls, so they can be extremely difficult for homeowners to control on their own. ABC’s pros can suggest effective treatments which target the areas bed bugs nest and breed so that both live bed bugs and eggs are eliminated from your property. Our technicians can also make suggestions on how to prevent any recurrences.
Wildlife & Rodent Control
Insects aren’t the only pest which can cause homeowners big headaches. Rats, mice, racoons, opossums and other forms of wildlife can enter your property and create havoc by knocking over your trash containers, chewing through electrical wires and contaminating our food. To add insult to injury, smaller pests, including fleas and ticks, can catch a ride on rodents and wildlife, making your pest problem even worse. ABC’s wildlife technicians humanely trap and relocate these larger animals away from your home and then take steps to prevent these pests from entering your home again by sealing up any holes or gaps along your home’s exterior.
Wasp & Bee Removal
Bees and wasps are an important part of our natural world, but these stinging insects can quickly become a problem when they nest on or around our home. Bees can take advantage of wall cavities to house a colony and wasps can nest near entryways on our porches, outdoor lighting fixtures and eaves. When these insects are accidentally disturbed, our loved ones and visitors can fall victim to uncomfortable stings. In some cases, the pain and swelling goes down in a day, and in other cases, when an individual is allergic to a bee sting, the result can be a medical emergency. ABC’s experts can advise you on how to handle colonies on your property and help you discourage these insects from making your home theirs.
Ants are among the most common insects on the planet. Chances are that you have several different types of ants on your property right now. Unfortunately, since ants are social creatures, you have many of these creatures if you have any. When ants find their way inside our homes, they can contaminate our food and make tunnels inside wood. Outside, fire ants can make our lives if we are unlucky enough to experience the pain and swelling of a bite. ABC’s expert technicians will implement a customized approach to target the different ant species on your property and help make your home less attractive for these pests in the future.
Flea & Tick Control
Fleas and ticks can infest both your indoor and outdoor spaces simultaneously. Fleas bite bite both humans and animals, but it’s the furry members of our household who can become quite miserable if they contract flea bite dermatitis. Ticks can come into your home and spread illnesses to your family, including Lyme disease. ABC’s pros use a holistic approach to eliminate these pests in across your property and help you prevent them from returning.
Scorpion & Spider Control
Here in League City, we can unknowingly disturb a scorpion or spider when we are out in the garden, cleaning out the garage and getting linens out of that back closet. When we do so, we can risk getting a scorpion sting or a spider bite. In some cases, these creatures are harmless; in others, an encounter with a poisonous spider can require a trip to the doctor. ABC’s pest professionals can provide you with suggestions on how to avoid encounters with scorpions and spiders, help identify how dangerous the species on your property are and handle any infestations you may encounter.
Once you have had time to review and approve our estimate, we can schedule your first service call. In a majority of cases, this first appointment takes place within four days of having the estimate approved. We make sure to schedule the first service call at a time that’s convenient for you.
The length and duration of treatment plans vary widely and will depend on what type of pests you are seeing, what stage of life they are in, the severity of your infestation and any other external factors in your home which can make the process any easier or more difficult. At the culmination of your treatment plan, our technicians may suggest that ABC return for periodic treatments to monitor for a resurgence of pests and to safeguard against another infestation.
The top priority we have at ABC is your family’s safety and well-being. That’s why we only use products which are low-impact and created for residential use. When it comes to application, our technicians carefully apply the products we use in small amounts. Our technicians are happy to create a treatment plan that addresses customers’ concerns about what products are being used.
Our commercial pest control clients in League City receive the same high-quality, reliable services as do our residential clients. ABC has an entire team of professionals who are highly knowledgeable about pest control in commercial settings, whether it is in a healthcare facility, retail location, hotel, restaurant, apartment complex or in another industry entirely.

AC Repair & Installation
Our hot and humid climate here in League City can take its toll on our air conditioners. Without regular maintenance, your unit can experience a significant amount of wear and tear since our air conditioners are on so many months of the year. ABC’s comfort specialists can fix any problem you might be having with your air conditioner, no matter the brand, and can maintain your unit so you avoid any costly repairs. ABC’s specialists can also suggest ways you can improve your home’s energy efficiency so that your unit doesn’t need as work as hard to keep your home feeling comfortable.
Many League City homeowners take advantage of ABC’s Preferred Service Plan, which makes scheduling this routine maintenance very convenient and which gets you discounts on parts and priority scheduling for service.
When your unit is nearing the end of its life, ABC’s technicians can give you an honest assessment of when it’s time to continue to make repairs and when it might be more cost-effective to invest in a new, more energy efficient unit. If you do decide to purchase a new air conditioner from ABC, we offer a one-year warranty on installation services, so you can feel confident that we stand behind the work we do.
Lawn Care Services
Our home’s curb appeal largely rests on how much time we spend on our yard. If you’d rather not spend your precious free time on your lawn, ABC’s skilled technicians can:
- Take care of regular mowing, pruning and edging
- Perform seasonal yard clean-ups to remove leaves and dead or wilting plants

One benefit of our warm temperatures is that we can use our pools many months out of the year. That said, keeping a pool maintained is a lot of work, especially if something suddenly stops working properly. ABC’s pool customers rely on us to:
- Vacuum, brush, wash, clean and skim our pools on a regular basis
- Maintain our pool’s chemical balance by keeping pH, chlorine, calcium hardness, alkalinity and cyanuric acid at manufacturer-recommended levels
- Empty debris and dirt from your skimmer and pump baskets
- Handle routine maintenance to spot any issues before they turn into costly repairs
