Yes, we do! We believe in providing our customers with superior service, from start to finish. The first step in that process is a free inspection. When you schedule an inspection with us, you can expect your pest professional to:
- Ask you questions regarding the severity and extent of your pest problem.
- Examine your home for any pest entry points and look for anything that could be attracting these uninvited guests to your home.
- Inspect your home for any damage the pests may have caused.
- Let you ask any questions about the pests, our processes or treatment plans.
Once the inspection is complete, ABC will provide you with a recommendation on the most effective methods to treat your home. Upon your approval, we will schedule the first service call.
Here in Edmond, we can help you with all your pest problems, no matter how big or small. Our experts are fully equipped to provide the following services:
Whether you’re opening a kitchen cabinet or a dresser drawer, or you spot a roach in your sink, these close encounters often make us wonder how many other of these pests are hiding in the shadows. Cockroaches are some of the most resilient creatures on Earth who have lived here longer than we have.
These creatures can contaminate food, trigger allergens, damage paper products and leave behind a foul smell. Cockroaches have the ability to infest homes quickly, as they reproduce rapidly. Some species can produce up to 10,000 offspring per adult female each year. Cockroaches are also experts at hide and seek, making it a frustrating task to attempt to eradicate them.
Instead of spending all your free time fighting a difficult battle against your resident pest population, call in ABC. Our pest professionals know where roaches like to rest and can eliminate their breeding grounds, as well as the rest of the population.
While wasps are a crucial part of Edmond's ecosystem, they can also make our lives much more difficult by making nests on or near our homes. Wasps can find entryways, decks, patios, eaves and our trees and gardens a perfect place to take up residence. Their presence can make spending time outside stressful, especially if you have an allergy to stings. When one of our professionals comes to your home, we will remove the nest, seal up any openings that could invite wasps back and educate you on how to avoid wasp encounters in the future.
When ants invade it can feel like these insects are everywhere—in your pantry, on your counter, on your hardwood floor and in your bathroom. Fire ant invasions are especially troublesome, as these creatures have a painful bite. Unfortunately, the population of fire ants is on the rise in Edmond. If fire ants feel their home is threatened, these insects will go after their attacker, often with painful consequences.
The pest experts at ABC know how to properly treat for all species of ants, so you won't have to fall victim to bites or the inconvenience of ants turning up at the worst times. Once your infestation is brought under control, your ABC team member can instruct you on ways to make your property less appealing for these pests.
Spider & Scorpion Control
A fear of spiders and scorpions is very common, even though most of these creatures are not aggressive. However, like any animal, these pests will lash out when they are frightened. While no one wants to get bitten by any species of spider, there are two poisonous species here in Edmond that you need to keep your eye out for: the black widow and the brown recluse. When spiders frighten us while we are cleaning, going through items in the garage, getting an item out of the back of the closet or bringing seasonal decorations down from the attic, we don't stop to get a better look, making it difficult for us to troubleshoot a spider problem.
Spiders aren't the only creature that often puts a shiver up our spines. When scorpions feel threatened, they can sting us, which can result in minimal swelling for adults. However, the venom from the sting can be extremely painful, and if a young or elderly member of your family gets stung, they may need medical attention.
Call in the professionals from ABC to identify which types of spiders and scorpions you have, so you know whether or not they should be removed. If your home is infested, we can apply treatments to reduce the population. We can also provide regular monitoring calls to ensure spiders and scorpions have not made their way back onto your property.
For many people, termites aren't necessarily a top of the mind concern. Termites are sneaky little pests who make their way to our homes by burrowing tunnels underground until they reach our foundation. Once they find a food source, they'll start eating and they won't stop. Because termites thrive in this wooden underworld on your property, they can cause billions of dollars worth of damage to U.S. homes every year.
ABC can locate and eradicate entire termite colonies. Afterward, we will put in preventative measures that protect your home's perimeter from future infestations. To make sure termites don't stick around, we will schedule regular monitoring calls.
Whether it's rats or mice, these big pests create big problems. They can wreak havoc on our homes by chewing up electrical wires, knocking over trash cans, contaminating food, destroying our belongings, spreading disease and terrorizing family members and pets. Also, these pests can cause a secondary infestation of other smaller pests, such as fleas and ticks.
Our technicians will do two things when they come to your home to resolve your pest problem. First, they will locate and remove any unwanted wildlife that has made your home their own. Second, they will seal up any potential entry points to prevent future pest problems and give you suggestions on how to make your home unappealing to wildlife.
While exploring new spots of the country is fun, the spread of bed bugs is not fun. Unfortunately, travel is a large factor in the increase of the bed bug population in Edmond. Bed bugs are stealthy and due to their tiny size, they can hide nearly anywhere. They like to hide in mattresses, in-between baseboards, in our clothing, furniture and any other tiny crevices they can find. They also like to come out at night and only when they sense a blood meal is nearby. Once they've gotten their fill, they will go back to their hiding spot until they are hungry again.
Homeowners tend to have issues with bed bugs because they can go for long periods of time without feeding. Many people believe they have gotten rid of their bed bugs when in reality they are just hiding. At ABC, we will be thorough and treat your home until your bed bug population has dwindled down to zero.
Tick & Flea Control
Ticks and fleas are two parasites that feed on human and animal blood that are prevalent here in Edmond—and just because you don't have any pets doesn't mean you're safe from them. While we think of flea bites as being itchy and obnoxious, we usually don't think about the secondary infections we can get from continually scratching at them. Fleas also require different methods of treatment throughout different life cycles, which make them an extremely difficult pest for homeowners to get rid of on their own.
Although we don't necessarily associate ticks with infestations, they are a pest you need to keep an eye out for, as they can transmit serious diseases, such as Lyme disease. When you call in an ABC pest control professional, they can not only eradicate these pests at every life cycle, but they can provide you with preventative measures for keeping these bloodsuckers away.
Sometimes you don't know you have a mosquito problem until day after day you're finding more and more bites on your arms, legs, ankles and other exposed skin. While mosquitoes' claim to fame is obnoxious bites, they are also known for spreading the Zika virus and the West Nile Virus. If you're finding more and more mosquitoes on your property, it's time to call in a professional from ABC.
Mosquitoes only need about a bottle cap's worth of water to reproduce, making it extremely difficult to kill them on your own. Also, different life stages require different treatment plans. ABC's experts can apply targeted treatments to common problem areas, provide you with suggestions on how to make your property less attractive to these pesky pests and reduce your backyard population.
The well-being of your family is ABC's top priority. As a company that follows the principles of Integrated Pest Management (IPM), our focus is on making your environment less hospitable to pests so that you are less vulnerable to infestations in the first place. We will walk you through our treatment plan and give you the opportunity to ask us any questions you might have about the products we will be using. The products we use are specially formulated for residential use and are low-impact while being effective in resolving your pest problems.
Each pest problem we encounter is different. We know that many homeowners would like to hear that their pest problems will be eradicated in one or two visits. Most of the time, however, multiple treatments are needed to resolve the problem entirely.
Some factors that are taken into account when creating a custom treatment plan include the extent of your infestation, the season you're experiencing the problem, the type of pest or pests that have invaded your property and anything else that is unique to the situation that could make your pest problem easier or more difficult to resolve.
When your inspector visits your property, we get a better idea of the type of pest problem you're facing. One of our inspectors will be able to gather the most accurate information and use this information to design the best action plan for your pest control problem.
Yes, we do! Commercial properties have different needs than homes, which is why we have specially trained employees that can treat your business for pests.
