It takes a special kind of talent to take down a crafty Houston raccoon and her baby. We appreciate his skill for that issue as well. Patrick was able to get to our home if needed on fairly short notice and answered all of our questions. It was a pleasure to work with him through this annoying situation. Thank you, Patrick and ABC.
We understand that once you discover pests in and around your home, you want to get rid of them - fast. Give us a call at (281) 730-9500, and we will send a pest control expert to your property as soon as possible.
After an ABC pest control specialist performs your free initial inspection, we’ll work with you to develop a customized treatment plan for your home or business. We draw upon our decades of experience in pest control in Houston to develop a strategy to get rid of these common pests for good:
Ants are the most common pest nationwide. In addition to being difficult to control, ants can cause extensive damage to your property and can harm both people and pets. Ants become more active during warmer weather, which makes them even more pervasive in the Houston area most of the year. ABC's expert technicians can develop custom solutions to reduce both indoor and outdoor populations.
In recent years, bed bugs have become a public health problem across the country. Similar to lice, bed bugs feed on human blood, and bites can cause allergic reactions and secondary infections. The Houston area has seen an increase in bed bug infestations. These pests are experts at hiding and can establish themselves in your home before you’re even aware they’ve arrived. ABC is the only company in the Houston area to use bed bug sniffing dogs to detect these minuscule pests and both spot and heat treatments to guarantee they won't return.
Bee and wasp stings are painful, and can also be extremely dangerous if you have an allergy. However, bees perform an important role in our ecosystem. These stinging insects can nest in a wall cavity on your home's exterior, posing a threat to you and your household. Beehives can often be relocated to protect the hive, with the help of a skilled professional.
Roaches enter your property as they search for dark, damp places to find the moisture they rely upon to survive. Even in the cleanest conditions, cockroaches can find food, often in difficult to reach locations. In addition to being carriers of diseases, such as salmonella, roaches reproduce quickly, so infestations can occur in a short period of time. Getting rid of roaches on your own can be a challenge because they are so common, so resilient, and can survive off of just about any type of organic matter. ABC's skilled professionals know all the cockroach hiding spots and how to help you avoid unwanted encounters with these creatures.
Flea & Tick Control
Flea and tick infestations aren’t limited just to homes that have pets—various types of wildlife can bring these pests to your front door, where they can catch a ride straight into your home. When treating for fleas and ticks it’s important to be aware of the life cycle and biology of these pests, since they can be immune to certain treatments at certain points in their life. ABC will inspect your property and design a program based on the extent of your problem.
Mosquitoes are not only a nuisance, but can also transmit diseases, such as the West Nile virus, malaria, and the Zika virus. Houston's humid environment is a perfect breeding ground for about 50 varieties of mosquitoes. The efforts of public health agencies in the Houston area to control the mosquito population are limited and cannot keep up with the rapid reproductive cycle of these common pests. With the help of ABC's effective Mosquito Larvicide Stations, you can eliminate both adult mosquitoes and neutralize breeding grounds.
Wildlife & Rodent Control
Rodents enter your home looking for food, water and warmth. Once they are established, rats and mice can transmit disease, contaminate food, and over time, cause substantial damage to your property’s eaves, electrical wiring and even inside of your vehicles. ABC will humanely remove these animals from your property and seal possible entry points so that these unwelcome houseguests won't make a return visit.
Spiders live in virtually every Texas home. Although these animals perform their own kind of pest control inside of your home, if you accidentally disturb their webs, you can get bitten. Bites from black widow and brown recluse spiders, which are two spider species found in the Houston area, require a trip to the doctor. If you cannot identify a spider in your home, it’s best to call in the experts. ABC can help you distinguish between harmful and harmless species and control an infestation.
Termites cause billions of dollars of damage each year across the United States. Since termites feed on wood, they can do significant structural damage to homes and businesses. These insects can be living in or near your home long before you discover them. ABC can quickly discover the source of your infestation, eliminate entire colonies of termites and apply underground preventative treatments to protect your biggest investment in the future.
A licensed ABC Houston inspector will first visit your home or business to:
assess your current pest problems,
identify pests and any related damage,
evaluate any structural issues or sanitation practices which may be contributing to your pest problems,
answer any questions you may have based on their findings, and
create a custom pest management plan based on your home inspection and needs.
Once our customers review and approve the pest management plan, we’ll schedule an initial service call - usually within 3-4 business days - to provide treatments to your home to eliminate any pests in and around your home or business.
During normally scheduled follow-up visits, we treat areas pests may hide outdoors and any potential entry points for insects, including wall voids, weep holes, electric lines and air conditioning lines. We also inspect outdoor areas for conditions favorable for crawling insects, such as cockroaches and ants, and implement recommendations for simple, safe measures around the perimeter of the property to prevent further infestations.
Our ongoing maintenance program allows our ABC specialists to periodically check for new conditions that may attract insects and common pests and replenish materials designed to prevent pests from re-entering your home or business.
The frequency of service depends on both the pest we are treating as well as the treatment plan that's been customized to meet your needs.
It is not unusual to see an increase in pests as we apply treatments which drive these animals out of their normal hiding spots. The good news is that the pests which emerge will then carry the treatments back to their nests. If you do not experience a decrease in pests after 7-10 days, contact ABC and we will send a technician back to your property. Any return visits by our pest control specialists after the initial 7-10 days and within 30 days happen at no cost to you.
Your family’s well-being is our top priority at ABC Home & Commercial Services. We work with our customers to develop effective treatments which minimize the use of chemicals, and our specialists apply treatments with the utmost concern for the safety of you, your children and your pets. Customers can also request Material Safety Data Sheets on all the products we use. These documents provide detailed information about any potential risks.
