Mosquito Control in Houston, TX

Not only are mosquitoes a huge nuisance, but mosquito bites can also be extremely dangerous. ABC takes a serious approach to mosquito control so you can enjoy your backyard. ABC uses an environmentally friendly, pet friendly, and green system to protect you and your family against mosquitoes. The Mosquito Larvicide Station (MLS) is placed around your backyard and enlists the mosquito to fight for us. This service is designed to drastically reduce mosquito populations by 95% to allow you to enjoy your outdoor environments.

ABC uses four primary methods to eliminate mosquitoes from your property.

After an initial inspection, our highly trained pest control experts:

Locate breeding grounds to prevent eggs from hatching. One reason that mosquito control is so difficult is that these insects reproduce quickly. One female can lay up to 300 eggs at a time, and eggs take only 24 to 48 hours to hatch into larvae. That’s why the most important first step in getting rid of mosquitoes is to find any eggs on your property. Our mosquito control experts survey your yard to locate mosquito breeding grounds and lay out bait to neutralize eggs and larvae.

Depending on the type of mosquitoes in your yard, our experts will also check your property for standing water that may have accumulated in vases, pet bowls, buckets, birdbaths and other containers which may be providing a haven for mosquitoes to reproduce. In addition to removing standing water, our experts will ensure that no gaps exist in water storage containers, such as rainwater collection barrels, so that mosquitoes are unable to get inside and lay eggs.

Target mosquito resting areas with mobile misting backpacks. Since many mosquito species spend the daytime resting in grass and shrubs, our highly-skilled pest control specialists use backpack misters to spread a mosquito-repelling fog to eradicate the juvenile and adult mosquitoes from your yard. These misters allow our mosquito control experts to target areas in your yard which may be prime resting areas for mosquitoes and penetrate thicker vegetation.

Neutralize both mature mosquitoes and larvae with specialized traps. Our technicians can place a trap in your yard that attracts mosquitoes ready to lay their eggs. As the mosquitoes lay their eggs, two things happen: a larvacide travels from the mosquito’s body and legs into the water which is lethal to mosquito eggs as they pupate, and a fungus attaches itself to the mature mosquito, which kills the mosquito in a few days. Before the adult mosquito dies, she travels to many other places in a 4,000-square foot radius of your Mosquito Larvicide Station to lay more eggs and prevents larvae is all of these places from growing to maturity. The active ingredients in the trap are not harmful to birds or mammals.

Install no-hassle mister stations throughout your property. The best long-term solution to managing mosquitoes on your property is through the automatic application of mosquito control products. If customers choose this method, our Mosquito Control experts will come and set up CoastalMister™ stations throughout your yard.

These inconspicuous spraying nozzles release a fine mist of diluted insecticide at multiple, pre-planned times per day. The mist is toxic to mosquitoes, but after one or two hours after it dries, your yard is completely safe for you, your children and your pets. You can adjust the release of the mist by the season and even by the day so that you can be in control and not have to worry about mosquitoes in your yard.

Once you contact us, we’ll send an ABC Houston mosquito control expert to your home and determine the best course of action to address the problems you are having.

When you contact us, we will schedule an inspection to get an understanding of the problem. In some cases, we can give you a quote over the phone.

2. Get An Estimate

If you have an inspection, we will send you a custom treatment plan and estimate afterward. Once we get your approval, we will schedule your treatment.

3. Treatment

We will come to your property and treat for pests in common hiding and nesting areas. Over time, you will start seeing less and less pest activity.

4. Prevention

Customers with our ongoing pest management services will receive periodic retreatments to prevent the return of the most common pests in our area.

Mosquitoes reproduce in staggeringly high numbers. A single female can lay enough eggs to result in millions of mosquitoes invading your yard within just a few weeks. Without proper training and equipment, homeowners are usually unable to control mosquitoes on their own.
