Effective Pest Control Solutions
ABC is happy to help homeowners with any type of rodent or wild animal that has taken up residence on their property. Our specialists are highly trained on the habits and behaviors of these creatures and will be able to locate where these pests are nesting and breeding.

Our management plans begin with determining where these creatures are living on your property, and then setting traps to remove them. Once we have confirmed that all of the creatures are out of your attic, crawl spaces, garage, sheds and living spaces, we will seal off entry points future pests could use to gain access to your property. We will also set up barriers in areas that can’t be sealed off, such as vents and chimneys.
Customers who sign up for our rodent exclusion services benefit from having regular inspections of your property performed by our experienced technicians to ensure that all potential pest entry points are sealed off and that there are no signs of recent pest activity.

Frequently Asked Questions
How soon can you come out?
At ABC, we understand that having rodents or wildlife living on your property can be overwhelming. This is why we do everything we can to get your initial inspection scheduled as quickly as possible so we can begin treatment. Get in contact with us and we will send an expert to your home at your earliest convenience.
What does your rodent exclusion warranty cover?
Customers who sign up for ABC’s Rodent Exclusion service can have peace of mind knowing that our professionals will regularly come to check traps. If a rat or mouse problem develops between these service calls, contact us. We will return to your property at no additional cost.
Unfortunately, some properties are more vulnerable to rodent infestations than others. For example, gaps between Spanish tiles make it easier for rodents to make their way into a home. Likewise, pier and beam structures are more susceptible to rodent activity because they have large crawl spaces that cannot be completely sealed off. Because we cannot guarantee results in these cases, our traditional warranty does not extend to these types of properties. When we have our initial discussion with you about your rodent problem, we will go over the best management plan to meet your needs, given your property’s unique factors and your particular rodent or wildlife problem.
How can I prevent a rodent or another type of wildlife from making my property its home?
It’s much easier to prevent a rodent or wildlife problem than it is to control an established population. Homeowners can take the following steps to help prevent future rodent problems:
- Seal gaps, holes and cracks along your home’s exterior. While it’s unlikely you have gaps big enough for raccoons to squeeze into your home, mice are capable of squeezing through holes the size of a nickel and rats can find their way through gaps the size of a half dollar.
- Remove potential food sources. Make sure all pet food and birdseed containers are tightly sealed and that your trash cans are closed securely. Inside your home, promptly clean up spills, keep food in containers with lids and put your dishes in the dishwasher shortly after use.
- Make your yard less appealing to other forms of pests. Keep your outdoor spaces neat and tidy with regular mowing, pruning and trimming, so there are fewer places for these animals to nest. Move woodpiles away from the exterior of your home and remove any other potential nesting sites, like old tires.
These efforts can be very helpful in preventing an infestation. By taking these steps, you’ll save yourself time in the long run, so you’ll be able to spend your evenings and weekends relaxing with your family, playing a round at The Woodlands Country Club, having a picnic at Northshore Park or doing all the things that make our area such a great place to live.
How would I know these larger pests were in or around my house?
There are several signs you can look out for that would indicate that a rodent or another large pest is on your property. Common signs of rodents include:
- Droppings, which can vary in size from a grain of rice to being about the same size as pet feces.
- Nesting sites or burrows, which can be in the dirt surrounding your home or in your attic or garage.
- Gnaw marks on wood, wires and other household items.
- Strange noises coming from your attic, chimney, walls or from underneath your deck or patio.
- Overturned trash cans or damage to pet food or birdseed containers.

What Our Customers Are Saying
“ABC is top notch. They came out right away to inspect for an estimate and offered a very thorough explanation as to what needed to be done to fix our issues. They provided our service the very next day and worked in the rain and in the dark, making sure that nothing was left undone before they left. I feel comfortable that they have taken care of our problem and I can sleep better tonight. Christopher was so great! Thank you ABC! I feel really good about our decision in choosing you to take care of our home moving forward!”
“Marco did an awesome job of running the project. He made good suggestions that worked out well for landscaping our backyard. He also went the second mile to help solve the small issues that arise when this type of work is performed. My wife and I are very happy with our beautiful new backyard which came at a fair price.”
While an infestation of something like cockroaches, ants or spiders might be more apparent, knowing whether your home is housing termites can be more difficult.
