Houston Exterminator: Termite Control & Treatment

There's a lot to love about living in Houston, but one downside is the high density of termites. These household pests cause billions of dollars in property damage every year, and unfortunately, our hot and humid climate makes Houston a hotbed for termite infestations. Our Houston pest control specialists hope you never have to deal with the damage these wood-destroying insects can leave behind. However, if you ever suspect termite activity in or around your home, don't hesitate to reach out to the Houston exterminator termite control & treatment specialists here at ABC Home & Commercial Services.

We Know Termites & We Know Houston

Whether you’re trying to prevent future termite damage or fear that you may already have an active infestation, you can trust ABC Home & Commercial Services to solve your termite problem. Our family-owned pest control business has helped thousands of Houston area homeowners exterminate termites over the past 30+ years, and we’ll be here to help you, too.

Installing a Termite Barrier Around Your Home

We install a termite bait system around your house called Sentricon to attract and eliminate active termite colonies for the highest level of prevention. Foraging termites are attracted to the bait in the underground stations and return it to the nest. This bait inhibits the growth of termites that come into contact with it, including the queen, And prevents eggs from hatching—effectively wiping out the entire termite colony before reaching your home.

This scientifically-proven termite solution is not only practical, but it also earned the President’s Green Chemistry Award for environmental safety. Sentricon protects many national treasures from termite damage, including the Alamo, Statue of Liberty, White House, and the U.S. Capitol. ABC also offers a termite warranty for homes and businesses where it has installed and maintains a Sentricon system.

Another preventative measure is called Termimesh, a product commonly installed during new home construction, is an entirely non-toxic metal screen that is 100% effective.

Treating and Eliminating Active Termites

If you suspect that you have termites, don’t wait. Damage can occur long before evidence of termites has been spotted.

When it comes to termites, our trained pest control experts will:

Immediately following treatment, it’s not unusual to see increased termite activity as previously undetectable insects are being driven out of their regular hiding spots. The good news is that the exposed termites will carry the treatment solution back to their colonies, which will then effectively “treat” the insects that were not present at the original treatment site.

Frequently Asked Questions

How soon can you come out?

We understand that once you see evidence of termites on your property, you want to act quickly. Give us a call and we will send a pest control expert to your home as soon as possible to perform a termite inspection and recommend a course of action.

What happens during the free inspection?

Our inspectors will arrive at your home and conduct a thorough inspection of your property. Our highly trained and knowledgeable technicians will assess the current damage, look for entry points around the exterior of your structures, and develop a treatment plan that is customized to meet your needs.

We will then provide you with a free estimate with a list of recommendations to address your termite problem. After a homeowner approves our recommendations, we will come up with a service plan that fits your schedule.

How often do you service my property?

The frequency of service depends on both the treatment plan that’s been customized to meet your needs and the extent of your termite problem.

What can I do to prevent termites?

When building a new home, we recommend installing Termimesh, which is a metal screen found to be 100% effective in preventing termites. By using this protective barrier around service wires and pipes, homeowners can remove the most common entry point for these insects. Using treated lumber for new construction and remodeling also helps prevent termites from causing damage to your property.

On existing property, we suggest keeping any kind of wood or lumber piles away from the exterior of the home, and if possible raising stacks of wood off the bare ground with pallets or other support structures. Removing brush and undergrowth around your home is useful to rid your property of a possible food source for termites.

Another way to prevent a termite infestation is to minimize any water sources. Leaky spigots and standing water can be attractive to termite colonies. Also, we suggest our customers keep homes properly ventilated to prevent moisture buildup in the home, which can attract these hungry pests.

Sealing cracks or holes in the foundation is another way to prevent easy termite access. Our highly knowledgeable termite control experts can suggest other areas these insects might enter your property and other conditions which may attract these bothersome pests.

“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.”
