Pre-Construction Termite Control with Termimesh
The humid climate in Texas makes Houston a hotbed for pest activity, including termites. Texans spend millions of dollars annually to repair damage caused by termites. With ABC pest control services, you can save a lot of time and money in the long run. Installing the 100% effective termite prevention, Termimesh, will prevent your home from being part of that statistic.
Effective Termite Prevention
Termites cause over a billion dollars in property damage every year in America. A single colony can consume the equivalent of a 2-foot long 2×4 plank of wood. This may not sound that destructive until you consider that piece of wood could be the support beam for a load-bearing wall.
Termimesh, when installed on a new property, is 100% effective at deterring termites from ever invading your home. With peace of mind like that, it only makes sense to be proactive in preventing what could be very costly damage to your property, especially when it is completely non-toxic and environmentally friendly.
What is Termimesh?
Keeping termites out with Termimesh means focusing on the areas where termites will try to enter your home. For that reason, Termimesh is a non-chemical, permanent barrier used in very specific places in the home’s slab. It’s essentially a non-corrosive, ultramarine-grade stainless steel barrier to keep termites out.
Termites colonize in the soil and enter buildings through the most minor points of entry (they only need 1/64th of an inch) that come into contact with soil.
During the construction phase, ABC can install Termimesh around service wires and pipes connecting to your home, which are then sealed inside the concrete. Termites cannot go through or damage the barrier.
Keep Your Home Termite Free
There are several methods for preventing termites from ever getting a foothold on your property well after Termimesh has been installed. These solutions include:
- Adding periodic termite inspections as part of your regular pest control services
- Scheduling a standalone termite inspection of your property by a trained termite control specialist
- Fixing any leaks or plumbing problems since termites are attracted to wood and moisture

What Our Customers Are Saying
“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.”
