During the initial inspection, you can expect your pest control specialist to:
- Ask you questions about where you’ve been seeing pests or noticing pest activity.
- Perform a walk-through of your property to locate where the pests are hiding and any potential entry points these unwanted guets could be using to gain access to your home and yard.
- Take note of any pest-related damage.
- Identify the species of pest, if necessary.
- Assess your property for any structural issues or environmental factors that may make your home and yard more appealing to pests.
- Create a customized solution to treat your pest problem.
To wrap up our inspection, we will provide you with an estimate for our services. Once we receive your approval, we will schedule your first treatment call. In most cases, we can get you on our schedule within the next 3 to 4 business days.
During our regularly scheduled follow up calls, we will treat common outdoor hiding spots for pests, as well as any potential pest entry points. For instance, we commonly apply products in and around wall voids, weep holes, electric lines and air conditioning lines. We will also inspect your property for any potential factors that could attract crawling pests, such as ants and cockroaches. To reduce the likelihood of a future infestation, we may recommend making minor modifications to your environment.
Our customers who take advantage of our recurring pest treatment plan benefit from regularly scheduled service calls to prevent the return of pests. During these calls, you can expect your pest control specialist to replenish any needed products, apply preventative treatments wherever needed and assess your property for any new signs of pest activity.

How soon can you come out?
ABC understands that if you’re struggling with a pest problem, you want a professional to come to your home promptly. Get in touch with us by calling or contacting us online and we will schedule your inspection as soon as possible. Sometimes, we’re even able to offer estimates over the phone.
How often will you service my property?
When we come to your property for your initial assessment, we will give you a better idea of how many treatments your property will require. Although we understand that you might prefer to have a definitive answer to this question before getting started, each pest problem is unique, and in order for the treatment to be as effective as possible, it needs to be customized to treat the problem you are experiencing. When determining how many treatments your property will require, we will take into consideration the type of pest on your property, the season in which the infestation has taken place and the severity and extent of your problem.
Many pests in the Sienna Plantation area have seasonal life cycles, so we usually recommend ongoing treatments. During these calls, we will apply preventative treatments and take note of any new pest activity so we can catch a potential problem before it turns into a full-blown infestation.
What if I still see pests after a treatment?
It is actually normal to see some pest activity after a treatment. Our products are designed to make living and breeding areas for pests inhospitable, so they will often venture out, searching for a new place to live. When the pests travel from place to place, they will unwittingly bring the product with them, which will lead the dwindling of the population. Pest sightings 7 to 10 days after treatment is considered normal. However, if you’re still seeing quite a bit of pest activity anywhere from 7 to 30 days after your initial treatment, contact us. We would be happy to send a specialist back to your home, at no additional cost.
Are the products which you use pet and kid-friendly?
ABC is a family-run business, and since we keep family at the forefront of all our decisions, we only use products that we would feel comfortable using on our own properties. We have a thorough product research process that only allows treatments for consideration which are specifically manufactured for residential use. As part of our initial inspection, we will determine the lowest concentration of chemicals we can use to be both low impact and effective. If you have any further questions about the products we use or our pest control protocol, your pest control specialist will be happy to answer them.
Do you service commercial facilities?
Yes, ABC offers commercial pest control, in addition to a variety of other services for local and regional businesses. We understand that these types of facilities have different needs and requirements than residences, which is why we have specially trained technicians for these types of properties.
