We understand that once you see signs of a pest infestation, you want to get it handled—quickly. Once you contact us, we’ll send an inspector out to your property at the earliest opportunity to learn more about your problem and gather the needed information to deliver an estimate for recommended next steps.
During this initial visit, the inspector will look for signs of damage, identify the pest which is causing your problem (if needed), determine how pests are making their way into your home or yard and give you the opportunity to ask any questions you might have. Once you have had a chance to review and approve the estimate, we can schedule the first service call to begin treatments.
Homeowners across the greater Houston area, including in The Woodlands, rely on the experienced professionals at ABC to resolve any type of pest problem you may be experiencing on your property.
Our highly-trained technicians routinely help homeowners in The Woodlands with:
The warm and humid climate here in The Woodlands is one of the reasons mosquito season is practically year-round. The near-constant buzzing in your ears from these pesky pests and the itchy and irritating bites they leave can make spending time in our yard unpleasant. More than just a nuisance, mosquitoes can transmit diseases,
including the Zika and West Nile viruses. ABC’s pros can provide you with options to keep mosquitoes at bay so you can enjoy spending time outside again.
Texas Monthly once called them “The World’s Most Despicable Bug”. Most homeowners find cockroaches repulsive because they can destroy paper products, contaminate food, leave offensive odors and stains and even transmit salmonella and other types of bacteria. These pests can even provoke allergic reactions, particularly for individuals who are already prone to asthma and other respiratory conditions. ABC’s experienced technicians can quickly identify the source of your infestation and eliminate both live roaches and their eggs, as well as sealing holes and cracks that may allow them inside.
Which pest is the biggest threat to your biggest investment? Termites are estimated to cause billions in damage to homes across the country each year. These wood-eating insects attack your foundation through underground tunnels, so the structural integrity of your home can be compromised before you even realize you have a problem. ABC’s experts can locate and treat for colonies around your home’s perimeter and apply a preventative product to keep these dangerous pests from doing damage in the future.
Due partly to increased travel patterns, bed bugs have recently emerged as a public health concern. These microscopic pests are capable of hiding in even the narrowest cracks and crevices and emerge while we are sleeping to feed on us while we are sleeping. Once a bed bug is done feeding, it will retreat back to its hiding spot, so homeowners find this pests one of the hardest to eliminate using DIY approaches.
ABC’s trained technicians understand pest behavior, so they know where to look for these troublesome creatures to evict them from your home, for good.
What’s responsible for that scratching noise you hear coming from up above? As you might imagine, the larger the pest, the more you may notice an animal’s comings and goings. Mice, rats, opossums, raccoons and other animals can find their way into your attics and crawl spaces in search of shelter and places to nest. In addition to their ability to spread disease, wildlife and rodents can chew through electrical wiring, contaminate our food, knock over trash containers outside and even bring in smaller pests on their fur. ABC’s wildlife specialists can humanely relocate these creatures and close any entry points to keep them in from making your home theirs.
Wasps and bees are an important part of our natural environment, but these stinging insects can pose a health threat to your household if they nest near your entryways or along the exterior of your home. Depending on the individual, a sting can range from being quite painful to being a medical emergency, if the person is allergic. ABC’s pros can advise you on how to relocate bees and wasps and seal any wall cavities that might attract them in the future.
Ants are social insects which can make their way into our homes in search of food and water. Fire ants are an especially troublesome species to have in your yard, since getting bitten can be quite painful and can leave you with a swollen, uncomfortable welt which can remain uncomfortable for a few days. Although most ants are primarily a nuisance, some species can create tunnels within wooden structures and contaminate our food. ABC’s technicians can develop a customized treatment plan to address different ant species which are present on your property and suggest ways to discourage these pests from invading your home in the future.
Flea & Tick Control
These parasites plague our pets and can also be a health concern for the human inhabitants of your home. Fleas are easily spread from our outdoor areas inside our home, although this doesn’t just happen when we have dogs and cats. Flea bite dermatitis can make our pets quite miserable. Ticks can spread illnesses to humans and animals, including Lyme disease. ABC can create a holistic treatment plan to address both indoor and outdoor flea and tick populations so that you know how to prevent a future infestation.
Scorpion & Spider Control
When we are cleaning out our garage, moving clothing and linens when seasons change and working in our garden, we can accidentally disturb a spider or scorpion. Most homeowners don’t know the difference between dangerous and harmless spiders and scorpions and what to do if bitten or stung. ABC can help you identify what species you have in your home, treat for any infestations and suggest things you can do to discourage these creatures from any future unwelcome encounters.
Here in The Woodlands, there has been a growing demand for green pest control, which is why ABC has launched Chem-Free Organic Pest Control. While both ABC and Chem-Free follow the principles of Integrated Pest Management (IPM), Chem-Free takes an even more holistic approach when implementing pest control for your home or business. Our first step is to modify areas of your property that may make you more susceptible to pest infestations and then what chemical interventions might be necessary to control your problem. Our dedication to green pest control has led us to become GreenPro certified, a distinction Chem-free shares with only 1% of existing U.S. pest control companies.
After you’ve taken the time you need to review and approve your estimate, we can schedule the first service call. Under normal circumstances, your first appointment will take place in within three or four business days of your approval. We work with you to find a time that is convenient for you for us to service your home.
Since every plan is different, the frequency and length of your treatments will depend upon what type of pests you have been seeing, what the extent of your problem is and any other factors which may be particular to your situation. Sometimes, our technicians recommend seasonal return visits to keep your home pest-free.
