During the inspection, you can expect your specialist to:
- Ask you questions about what you have been experiencing, such as where you’ve been noticing signs of pest activity or where you’ve been seeing the pests themselves.
- Conduct an inspection of your property to locate any pest hiding areas.
- Locate potential pest entry points and any pest-related damage.
- Examine your property for any structural issues or environmental factors that could be attracting pests.
- Give you an opportunity to ask any questions about the pest problem or our treatment plans.
- Create a custom pest control management plan to resolve your problem.
At the end of your inspection, your specialist will provide you with an estimate for our recommended next steps. Once we receive your approval, we will put your first treatment call on the schedule. Typically, we are able to get this call on our schedule within 3 to 4 business days.
During our regularly scheduled follow up calls, we will treat any outdoor areas where pests may be hiding as well as any potential pest entry points. Generally, this means we may apply solutions to wall voids, weep holes, electric lines and air conditioning lines. We will also assess your property for any factors that may make it appealing to crawling pests, such as cockroaches and ants. Based on our findings, we may recommend making minor modifications to your environment.
We also offer an ongoing pest management plan to help prevent the return of pests year-round. Our customers who take advantage of this plan benefit from regularly scheduled appointments where a pest control specialist will determine if there are any new factors that could make their property susceptible to a pest infestation, replenish any needed products and apply preventative treatments.
ABC has been serving homeowners since 1949 and now has operations in communities across Texas, Oklahoma and Florida. We’ve incorporated the lessons we have learned throughout our decades of experience into a thorough training program that all specialists must go through before performing service calls. Additionally, you can feel comfortable when any of our team members arrive at your home, as all employees are required to pass a drug test and background check. As a family-run business, one of our values is that we treat our customers’ homes as if they were our own. When you contact ABC for pest control in West U, you can have peace of mind that a courteous technician will implement an effective treatment plan while being careful around your home, yard and belongings, so you don’t have to worry about any more creepy crawlies.
How soon can you come out?
Whether you’re concerned after spotting a single pest on your property or if your home feels overrun, we understand that you want a professional to come to your home promptly. Just give us a call or schedule an appointment online and we will arrange for a visit by a technician at the soonest opportunity. On occasion, we can even offer an estimate over the phone!
How often will you service my property?
While we understand that most West U homeowners would prefer to hear that their pest problem will be resolved in just a few visits, we typically recommend ongoing treatments to ensure that the pest problem has been controlled. Also, because each pest problem is unique, there is no one answer to how many treatments a property will require. While creating your custom pest control plan, your specialist will take into account the time of year that the problem is taking place, the severity of the infestation, the type of pest and any other unique factors. Because some pests have seasonal life cycles, we usually recommend routinely scheduled service calls to ensure that pest populations stay low on your property.
What if I still see pests after a treatment?
Actually, it is possible to see some pest activity after an initial treatment. This is because the treatments we use make the pests’ current nesting areas inhospitable, so they’ll usually start searching for a new place to live, which can drive them out of their usual hiding spots. What these creatures don’t realize is that they will be bringing the treatment product with them to their new home, which will eventually impact the entire population. With our pest control treatments, we tell our customers that any pest activity from 7 to 10 days after your initial treatment is considered normal. If you’re still noticing quite a bit of pest activity anywhere from 7 to 30 days after your initial treatment, let us know and we would be happy to send a specialist back to your home. Any additional treatments within the specified time period will occur at no additional cost to you.
Are the products which you use kid and pet-friendly?
As a family-run business, our top priority at ABC is the well-being of your family. When we select the products that we use for residential pest control, we only select those that are specially formulated for residential use and that we would feel comfortable using on our own properties. When our specialists create pest management plans, they determine the lowest concentrations of chemicals to use to be both low-impact and effective. We believe in transparency, so if you have any further questions, your specialist would be happy to answer them.
Do you service commercial facilities?
Yes, ABC is fully equipped to provide your commercial facility in West U with pest control and a number of other services. We understand that there are specific requirements in place for some types of commercial facilities, which is why we have technicians that are specially trained to service these types of properties.
