ABC is happy to provide free pest inspections in Oklahoma City and the surrounding communities. We will also provide you with a complimentary, no-obligation estimate that is customized to your property and infestation. While we can provide some of our customers with estimates over the phone, we find that seeing the problem first-hand allows us to better give you the most accurate set of recommended next steps.
When you call us for an estimate, we will schedule a time for one of our trained inspectors to meet you at your home to do the following:
- Ask you questions about the pest activity in and around your home
- If necessary, locate and identify the species of pest on your property
- Examine your home for pest-related damage and common problem spots
- Identify structural or environmental issues that may make your home more susceptible to a pest infestation
- Take note of and report back to you on any damage that we may find
- Give you the opportunity to ask questions about our treatment plans and the products we use
After our inspection, we will provide you with a plan of action. Upon your approval, we will move forward with scheduling your first service call.
Many people associate a cockroach infestation with having a dirty home, but in reality, these pests are capable of invading even the cleanest of homes. Roaches are resilient creatures which can transmit diseases, trigger allergic reactions, contaminate food and damage paper products and clothes. Part of the reason these pests are so difficult to control is that they are prolific breeders, with some species producing up to 10,000 offspring per adult female in a single year. While cutting off pests' food sources is usually a sure way to make their populations dwindle, cockroaches are capable of surviving off nearly any organic matter. When you call in ABC, we will be able to quickly locate and treat cockroach nesting and breeding grounds so you don't have to worry about future unwelcome encounters with these creatures.
Having a wasp nest near your entryway, patio, deck or eaves can make come and going a nerve-wracking experience. These stinging pests are especially frightening if you or a family member are allergic to their bites. Our specialists can give you your yard back by removing these nest and providing you with advice on how to keep wasps away in the future.
Although they are tiny in size, many homeowners dread having ant invaders in and around their home. These pests can sneak into food containers and contaminate it, and some species will even bite us and cause damage to our home. Worse still, there are fire ants that build large, unsightly mounds in our yards that put our families at risk of getting bitten if we aren’t careful. The professionals at ABC will be able to treat your property with the most effective measures for the species you have.
Spider & Scorpion Control
While a few spiders can be beneficial around the home, there are two species of poisonous spiders here in Oklahoma that homeowners need to keep an eye out for: the black widow and the brown recluse. When homeowners have a run-in with a spider, they usually don't take the time to identify which species is in their home, making it difficult to determine whether quick action is necessary.
Scorpions are another intimidating pest that will sting humans if they feel threatened, which can happen when we accidentally find them in the back of the closet or behind a box in the garage. Although there are no species of poisonous scorpions in Oklahoma, these creatures do release venom when they sting which can result in pain and swelling.
If you're experiencing an uptick in spider or scorpion encounters in or around your home, one of our pest control experts can come identify which species you have on your property and help you limit their populations around your home.
These tiny pests are responsible for billions of dollars in damage in residential areas across the country each year. Subterranean termites, a common species of termite here in Oklahoma, have earned the nickname "silent destroyers" because they dig underground until they find a food source and will eat all day every day once they find one. Usually, the food source that they settle upon in residential areas is the foundation of a home.
ABC works to eliminate any existing termite colonies surrounding your home. Once that's done, we can implement preventative measures to ensure you don't have any future problems with these destructive pests. If you think you may have a termite infestation, one of our pest control experts can quickly find the source of the problem and use scientifically proven methods to eliminate the entire population. Afterward, we will apply preventative treatments around your property and perform routine monitoring to ensure that a newly established colony doesn't make its way close to your home.
These larger pests can create larger problems. When mice and rats enter our homes in search of shelter and food, they can contaminate our belongings, leave behind a foul smell and cause damage to our home's foundation and electrical wiring. These animals have even been known to cause secondary infestations of smaller pests, such as fleas and ticks. Mice, rats and the other pests they bring with them are capable of spreading other diseases to us, including salmonella and hantavirus.
A pest professional from ABC can help by locating and removing unwanted visitors and their nests. We will then seal up any holes or cracks that animals could use to enter your home in the future. Before we leave, we will provide you with tips on how to prevent these creatures from making your property their home.
One downside of the rise of modern travel is it has made it even easier for these pests to invade more homes. Bed bugs are only about the size of an apple seed, which allows them to get into even the tiniest of crevices within our home. Bed bugs have proven to be one of the most difficult pests for homeowners to get rid of on their own because of their tendency to hide in seams in our mattresses and furniture as well as their ability to go long periods of time between feedings. It's quite common for homeowners to believe that their bed bugs have gone away when in reality, these parasites are still full from their last meal. A pest control professional from ABC can accurately pinpoint where these pests are hiding and implement effective treatments so you can sleep easy again.
Tick & Flea Control
Flea bites can lead to nearly constant itching by us and our pets, and secondary infections in the most extreme cases. These pests require different methods of treatment in each of their life cycles, so fully eradicating them requires the help of a professional who has a comprehensive understanding of these pests.
Ticks will latch onto us and our pets for long periods of time after we’ve returned from a hike, a park or another outdoor area. Ticks are dangerous because they are capable of spreading several illnesses, including Lyme disease. Our professionals will be able to help get rid of both fleas and ticks on your property and provide you with tips on how you can make your home less attractive to these pests in the future.
Mosquitoes are most commonly known for their aggravating bites. However, these pests are also capable of spreading diseases, such as the West Nile virus and the Zika virus. Mosquito populations are extremely difficult to control because these insects require minimal amounts of water to reproduce. ABC can help minimize mosquito populations around your home by targeting adult mosquitoes and their breeding grounds so you can enjoy your backyard without the looming threat of itchy bites.
