ABC is happy to provide free inspections for homeowners in the greater Oklahoma City area. Depending on the pest and the extent of the infestation, we may even be able to provide you with an estimate over the phone. In some cases, we recommend an in-person meeting so one of our specialists can get a better understanding of your pest problem. By learning more about your situation first hand, we will be able to create the most effective treatment plan possible.
During this initial inspection, you can expect your pest control specialist to:
- Ask you questions about where you’ve been noticing pests or signs of pest activity
- Identify the species of pest, if necessary
- Assess your property for any environmental factors or structural issues that could make you more susceptible to a pest infestation
- Examine your home and yard for any pest-related damage
- Determine the extent of the infestation
- Give you an opportunity to ask questions regarding our pest control processes
At the end of our inspection, we will present you with an estimate for recommended next steps that are tailored to your property. When we receive your approval, we will put your first appointment on our calendar.
ABC has been providing pest control services since 1949. With our decades of experience, we’ve learned the best way to target and treat any type of pest that has invaded your space. While we can create a solution for any pest, we most commonly get requests for the following types of pest control in Midwest City and the surrounding communities:
Cockroaches are widely hated across the state of Oklahoma and around the country. These pests can infest even the cleanest of homes and when they do, they can contaminate food, damage belongings, leave behind a foul smell, worsen allergies and spread bacteria. Unfortunately, dealing with a cockroach infestation can be very difficult, as these pests have been around for millions of years and have evolved to be extremely resilient. Worse yet, these creatures are prolific breeders with some females laying up to 10,000 eggs in a single year. When you contact ABC for roach control, you can feel confident knowing that one of our specialists will be able to locate all of the roach hiding and nesting areas. Then, we will implement a custom pest control solution to target these pests and leave you with advice on how to prevent future encounters with these creatures.
Although we can all appreciate the role that wasps have in our ecosystem, it’s not pleasant when we discover that these creatures have nested on our property. Also, wasps typically congregate near areas that we commonly travel through, such as in entryways, eaves, patios, decks and trees. Anyone who has been stung by a wasp will tell you it’s not something they would like to experience again, and a sting can even have serious health implications if someone in your household is allergic. ABC’s specialists can remove the nest and seal up potential nesting spots other wasps could use.
In Oklahoma County, there are a variety of different ants that homeowners might find on their property. Unfortunately, these different species have different behaviors, meaning that there is no one solution to resolving an ant problem. For example, some species prefer sugary foods while others prefer protein. While some ants nest underground, others prefer to tunnel through the wood that makes up the structure of homes.
Fire ants have also become more of an issue recently in our area. If you, a family member or a pet accidentally stumble across a fire ant mound, these pests could see you as a threat and bite you relentlessly, resulting in painful welts. No matter what variety of ant is on your property, you can count on the specialists at ABC to create a thorough treatment plan to address your particular situation.
Spider & Scorpion Control
Although spiders and scorpions are not typically aggressive, it can still be frightening when we encounter one of these creatures. Fortunately, most varieties of spider we see in homes are essentially harmless. However, you should still keep an eye out for black widows and brown recluses, as these spiders are venomous.
We do also see scorpions in those out of reach spots in our garages and sometimes inside our homes and these animals can sting when threatened. If you are worried about spiders or scorpions on your property, contact ABC. One of our pest control specialists will be able to identify the variety of pest you have on your property and then apply solutions to reduce their populations.
Each year termites cost homeowners across the U.S. billions of dollars in damage. The most common species of termite is the subterranean termite and, as their name suggests, they live the majority of their lives in the ground. Because subterranean termites are typically out of sight, many homeowners don’t realize there is a termite colony on their property until significant damage has already been done. To make matters worse, a colony can have up to one million members and these pests will eat away at the structure of your home all day, every day.
ABC uses a two-fold approach when it comes to termite control. Our specialists will first locate the termite colony and then use scientifically proven methods to eradicate the colony. Next, we will apply preventative treatments around your home’s perimeter to act as a barrier against future invasions. For further peace of mind, you can sign up for our ongoing termite monitoring program. With this program, we will regularly check for signs of termite activity so we can stop any problems before they turn into a more costly headache.
It can be extremely disconcerting when you discover you have rats or mice living on your property. These creatures can contaminate food, make messes, spread diseases, damage belongings and even cause house fires by chewing through electrical wiring. Not to mention, these animals are so much larger in size than bugs that can make their way inside, complicating control efforts. To make matters worse, they can bring smaller pests like fleas and ticks into your home. If you’re ready to take your home back from these critters, contact ABC. We will be able to trap and remove all of the uninvited guests on your property, and then we will seal up potential entry points other rodents could use to gain access to your home. Finally, we will leave you with advice on how to make your property less attractive to these creatures.
Although bed bugs were once almost entirely eliminated from the U.S., the ease of modern travel has allowed bed bug populations to grow. When we visit an infested place, we can easily bring these pests home with us. Once bed bugs make it into our homes, they hide away in areas where they can easily get a blood meal, such as in the seams of our mattresses or in our furniture. Many homeowners struggle with controlling bed bug infestations on their own because these pests are tiny and bed bugs have become resistant to many pest control products on the market. When you contact ABC, we will be able to create a custom solution to eliminate these pests from your home.
You don’t need to have a pet to have a tick or flea problem. Fleas are prolific breeders, so infestations can develop seemingly out of nowhere. Fleas can bite us and our pets, resulting in miserably itchy welts that can even lead to secondary infections if scratched at excessively. Worse yet, you can still have a flea problem even if your pet is on a flea control regimen, as fleas are starting to become resistant to some flea control products.
Although tick infestations are relatively rare, having even a single tick on your property can have serious implications. Ticks are known for transmitting life-altering diseases to humans, such as Lyme disease. Contacting a reputable pest control company for tick and flea control is extremely important, as there are currently no pest control products on the market that can penetrate flea cocoons. That's why DIY efforts are often unsuccessful and you think you are re-infested with these pests when it's just that adult fleas have hatched from their cocoons. When you contact ABC for pest control, we create a thorough treatment plan to target these pests throughout their life cycle.
Most people associate mosquitoes with their obnoxious, itchy bites. However, it’s easy to forget that mosquitoes are also capable of transmitting serious illnesses, such as the West Nile virus and the Zika virus. While public health departments have put measures in place to reduce the number of mosquitoes in Oklahoma County, it’s nearly impossible to eliminate all of the mosquitoes in a residential area. Mosquitoes only need about a bottle cap’s worth of water to reproduce, and some females are capable of laying up to 200 eggs at a time. When you contact ABC for mosquito control, one of our specialists will implement a variety of different mosquito control treatments to both reduce the population of adult mosquitoes as well as neutralize mosquito breeding areas.
As a family-run business, the pest control plans we create and the products that we select are done with your family members in mind. Furthermore, one of our values is that we treat our customers' homes as if they were our own, and this value extends to the products we use. We only select products that are specially formulated for residential use, and we only choose those that we would feel comfortable using on our own properties. When we come to your home for your initial inspection, we will determine the lowest concentration of chemicals to ensure we have dealt with your problem effectively, all while being low impact. ABC also values transparency, so if you have any further questions about the products that we use, your specialist would be happy to answer them.
While we understand that most homeowners would like to have their pest problem resolved in just a few visits, our area has high pest activity, so we typically recommend multiple treatments. This is to ensure that we have properly controlled the pest population and reproduction has halted. Additionally, because pest populations are high here, ongoing relief from pest problems takes consistent effort. For long-term relief, we usually recommend signing up for our ongoing pest management plan. With this plan, you can have peace of mind that we will keep pest populations low on your property throughout the year.
When we are creating your custom pest management plan, we will determine how many treatments will be required to resolve your problem based on the type of pest that is on your property, the severity of the problem, the season in which the infestation has taken place and any other unique factors that make your property more attractive to pests. Our customers are grateful that ABC's tailored solutions for pest control in Midwest City get results.
