Our wildlife control specialists know exactly where these animals like to hide and can come up with a comprehensive plan to remove these creatures from your property, as well as prevent any new creatures from gaining entry into your home.

 

We most commonly get calls regarding:

An ABC specialist will determine where these creatures are living and nesting, then set traps to remove them from your property. When all these creatures are out of your attic, crawl spaces, garage, sheds and living spaces, we will seal off entry points that wildlife could use to gain entry to your home in the future and set up barriers in areas that can not be sealed off, including vents and chimneys. Your technician can also advise you on what you can do to make your property less attractive to animals, which might include bringing pet food and water bowls inside at night, removing food and moisture sources in your outdoor spaces and cutting back vegetation around the perimeter of your home which can provide a refuge for any unwelcome visitors.

The ABC Process

1. Contact ABC

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.

If you have any type of pest control problem, get started on the path to a solution by taking advantage of our free inspection. During the inspection, an ABC pest control expert will come to your property, learn more about your problem and conduct a thorough evaluation of your home and its surroundings.

After gathering the information the inspector needs, along with having a better understanding of any needed repairs, he or she will present you with a no-obligation treatment plan. As soon as you approve the treatment plan, you can schedule your first appointment. We will work quickly to remove the pest, make any necessary repairs and get you back to enjoying your home, inside and out.

Frequently Asked Questions

How soon can you come out?

We understand that once you see signs a mouse, rat or another pest has been on your property, you want to find a solution—fast. Give us a call and we will send a pest control expert to your home as soon as possible to inspect your property and recommend a course of action.

What does your rodent exclusion warranty cover?

ABC customers who sign up for our Rodent Exclusion service gain peace of mind knowing that our technicians will come back regularly to check traps. If you see a rat or mouse between these service calls, let us know. We will return to your property in between scheduled visits, at no additional cost to you.

Unfortunately, some properties are more susceptible to rodent reinfestations than others. For example, spaces between Spanish tiles make it easy for rodents to nest and find their way inside. Likewise, pier and beam structures are vulnerable to rodent activity because they have large crawl spaces underneath that can’t be completely sealed off. Since we cannot guarantee results in these cases, our traditional warranty does not extend to these types of properties. When we have our initial conversation with you about your rodent problem, we will go over the treatment plan we’d recommend to best meet your needs, given the unique characteristics of your property and your particular infestation.

How can I prevent a rodent or another type of wildlife from making my property its home?

It’s much easier to prevent rodents and other pests from entering your property than to deal with them once they are there. Homeowners can take the following preventative measures to help guard against these pests:

  • Seal cracks, gaps and holes along your home’s exterior. Although it’s unlikely you have any spaces for raccoons to enter your home, keep in mind that mice can squeeze through holes the size of a nickel, while rats can find their way inside through gaps the size of a half dollar.
  • Remove potential food sources. Make sure you seal pet or birdseed tightly and that your trash cans are closed securely. Inside your home, clean up spills quickly, keep your food stored in containers with lids and put your dishes in the dishwasher after you conclude your meals.
  • Make your yard less hospitable for pests. Keep your outdoor spaces neat and tidy by keeping up with mowing, pruning and trimming, so there are fewer places for these animals to hide. Keep woodpiles away from your home and remove possible nesting sites, like old tires.

How would I know these larger pests were in or around my house?

There are several signs you may have been visited by a rodent or another bigger type of pest. These include:

  • Droppings, which can vary in size from a grain of rice to much larger.
  • Burrows or nesting sites, which could be in the dirt in and around your home and which provide shelter for rodents.
  • Gnaw marks on wood, wires and other household items.
  • Noises coming from your attic, chimney, from within your walls or from under your deck or patio.
  • Overturned trash cans or damage to pet food or birdseed containers.

“Very friendly and helpful staff. On time and great service. They helped me trap and remove the mice that got into my house. The biggest part of their service is preventing them from coming in again. Every one of the people I dealt with either in the field or at the office were super nice! Highly recommend them. Very happy with my service.”
