Houston Exterminator: Mosquito Control Services

Not only are mosquitoes a considerable nuisance, but they can also carry diseases making mosquito bites dangerous. At ABC, we take mosquito extermination pest control very seriously. ABC uses an environmentally friendly, pet friendly, and green system to protect you and your family against mosquitoes called The Mosquito Larvicide Station (MLS). Exterminate mosquito populations by 95%, allowing you to enjoy outdoor spaces.

Effective Exterminator Mosquito Control Services

At ABC Home & Commercial, we understand that getting rid of mosquitoes can be the difference between enjoying time in your backyard and staying indoors until mosquito season is over. Once a mosquito pest control expert completes your free consultation, we will create a customized plan to fit your needs best.

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

  1. Locate breeding grounds to prevent eggs from hatching.
  2. Target mosquito resting areas with mobile misting backpacks.
  3. Neutralize both mature mosquitoes and larvae with specialized traps.
  4. Install no-hassle mister stations throughout your property.

With proper training and equipment, homeowners can usually control mosquitoes on their own, which is why we are happy to help.

Locating breeding grounds to prevent eggs from hatching 

One reason that mosquito control is so tricky is that these insects reproduce quickly. For example, 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 critical first step in getting rid of mosquitoes is to find any eggs on your property. Our mosquito exterminator 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:

Targeting mosquito resting areas with mobile misting backpacks 

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 purging juvenile and adult mosquitoes from your yard. 

Neutralizing both mature mosquitoes and larvae with specialized traps

Our traps work through selective targeting to control mosquitoes precisely. The traps are friendly to bees and other pollinators. Our mosquito extermination experts will put traps in your yard, attracting mosquitoes ready to lay eggs. When a mosquito lands on the trap and begins to deposit its eggs, a larvicide travels to the eggs and keeps them from maturing, then a fungus attaches itself to the egg-laying mosquito and kills it in a few days too.

Before the adult mosquito dies, it travels to many other places within a 4,000-square-foot radius of your Mosquito Larvicide Station. It lays many more eggs, but the fungus prevents larvae (in all these places) from growing. 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 service experts will set up CoastalMister™ stations throughout your yard. These inconspicuous spraying nozzles release a fine mist of diluted insecticide at multiple pre-planned times of the day. The fog is toxic to mosquitoes, but after it dries (one or two hours later), your yard is entirely safe for you, your children, and your pets.

You can adjust the release of the mist to fit your need; you can emit more during peak mosquito season and less on days with less mosquito activity. As you can see, ABC pest control specialists have many plans in place to help you get the mosquitoes around your home under control. Once you contact us, we’ll send an ABC mosquito service expert to your home and determine the best course of action to address your problems.

“I would definitely recommend ABC!! They were professional, courteous, and did a great job. During the treatment my blinds had to be removed, and they graciously put them back up before they left. Blair came three weeks later to do a follow-up check and was extremely friendly and helpful. He gave me more information and suggestions in regards to staying bed bug free. He even carried my large Amazon package into the garage for me. I would definitely recommend them for all your pest control needs. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️”

“Do your research, but this is the company to choose for your pest and rodent control. A new townhouse community is being developed in an adjacent wooded field, so all these woodland creatures started relocating to our established neighborhood. I get it, this land was theirs before it was ours, but after 20 years, they had no right to move into my house rent free. The cute hares/ rabbits were ok at first. They would flop around, and the worst they would do is leave small chocolate eggs in the yard. But when we heard scurrying in the attic, our anxiety levels started to rise. We were already overwhelmed by a pipe bursting in the garage in February due to a flash freeze. Then we noticed droppings as the restoration company came and cleared out the garage. But we really didn't connect all the dots because simultaneously we were caring for my 85 year old grandmother who was on hospice care from terminal breast cancer. So our hands were a little full at the time. But when we saw evidence that there was probably a mouse or something, we had to make it a priority. I called 3 or 4 local companies for quotes. 2 came to the house and 2 acted like they could care less about actually securing my business but were willing to quote hundreds of dollars for the service. One thing that stood out was the other companies said they would plug the holes leading into the house, but 2 said they don't go into the attic. Well that's where we heard them and so it didn't make sense to not go in the attic to hunt them down. Then Kirby from ABC came out. He did a thorough inspection and designed a plan to attack the problem. They definitely weren't the cheapest company, but they provided the best proposal with the strongest warranty. So we pulled the trigger. The crew was very professional and plugged holes and set traps. And the we waited. But there were no dead mice for weeks. So they came back out and found more holes to plug. Then the rodents got more desperate. One was bold enough to entire the kitchen at night. I was ready to burn down the entire house. Frustration was level 10. By this point my grandmother had passed away. Grief plus phobia and a general sense of absolute exhaustion had settled in. All the techs that came out were nice, friendly, professional and courteous, BUT we were sick of the rats running our house. I was also frustrated by what seemed to be a long wait between reporting sightings and an available appointment time. Mark Rodriguez came out and did a good job observing the situation and he realized that a supervisor was needed for a solution. Enter Kenneth! He was absolutely amazing. Between crawling through the attic and discovering new holes to tracking down a food source (a case of mac snd cheese boxes) in the garage that my grandmother left months before her passing (she was always prepared for when her great-grandchildren came over), Kenneth understands the mind of a mouse and the rationale of a rat. He made it his mission to eliminate these evils. And one by one, he did. Kenneth is a hero in our household. He will be receiving a Christmas card this year. My grandmother's dying wish was to rid the house of these invaders, and Kenneth and his team were able to accomplish that. It was worth ever penny for the complete customer care and warranty on the work. If you are looking for a quality solution, you've found it. Be patient, because rodents can be tricky and hard to eradicate, but ABC is committed to the long haul.”
