Yes, ABC is happy to offer free inspections for our customers. Depending on the pest that has invaded your property and the extent of your infestation, we may even be able to give you an estimate over the phone. In some cases, we recommend having one of our certified professionals inspect your home themselves to create a treatment plan that is customized to your specific situation.
During this initial meeting, your specialist will:
- Ask you questions about the pest activity around your home and yard
- If necessary, identify the type of pest that is on your property
- Determine if there are any environmental or structural factors that may make your property more susceptible to an infestation
- Take note of any pest-related damage and assess the extent of the infestation
- Provide you with an opportunity to ask any questions about the pests, our treatment plans and what a typical service call looks like
After the inspection, we will present you with a treatment plan to approve. Once we hear back from you, we will schedule your first service call.
With decades of experience in the pest control industry, ABC can handle any pest that has found its way on to your property. Our skilled technicians can handle any infestation, no matter what the size or severity.
While we can handle any pest that is on your property, we most commonly get requests to provide:
Roaches are some of the most resilient creatures on Earth. This means that eliminating them entirely can feel like a near-impossible task. Worse still, one female cockroach can produce up to 10,000 offspring in just one year. Roaches can infest even the cleanest of homes because they are able to survive on nearly any organic matter. Many people are disgusted by cockroaches, and they can transmit diseases, trigger allergic reactions, contaminate food, damage belongings and leave behind a foul smell.
The experts at ABC know exactly where these pests like to hide. We can create and implement a targeted treatment plan to ensure we eliminate their populations. We can also prevent the next generation of cockroaches from invading your property, so you don’t have to worry about any other future run-ins with these pests.
While we can all appreciate the role wasps play in our ecosystem, it's understandable that we prefer that they not nest in our patios, trees, eaves and entryways. When wasps congregate near our homes, it can make going outside a dangerous task, especially if you or a family member is allergic to their bite. ABC’s specialists can remove their nest and seal up any openings that other wasps may use to nest near your home. We will also leave you with advice on how to keep these pests away moving forward.
Unfortunately, there are many different species of ant here in Moore. Depending on the type that has invaded your space, your treatment options may vary. This is because some ants will invade your pantry, while others tunnel through the wood that makes up the structure of your home, while still others create unsightly mounds in your backyard.
Populations of fire ants have grown across Moore over the past couple of years. If you, a family member or a pet accidentally stumble across one of their mounds, they will see you as a threat and you may become covered in painful bites. No matter what species of ant has invaded your space, ABC can create a treatment plan to eliminate the colony and we will leave you with advice on how to make your property less attractive to these pests.
Spider & Scorpion Control
These intimidating pests are generally not aggressive creatures. However, if you accidentally disturb one, its fight or flight instinct might kick in and you may get bitten. In Moore, there are two species of poisonous spider we need to keep a lookout for: the black widow and the brown recluse. If you’re noticing an increasing amount of spiders or scorpions, ABC can help by letting you know which types are venomous and treat your property to reduce their populations.
These tiny pests cost homeowners in the U.S. billions of dollars in damage each year. Subterranean termites, a common species of termites here in Moore, are nicknamed silent destroyers because they tunnel underground until they find a plentiful food source. Unfortunately, the foundations of our homes can provide them with this needed nourishment. Once on your property, termites will feed on the cellulose in your wood all day, every day. Often, homeowners don’t realize they have a termite problem until there has already been a significant amount of damage.
ABC uses a two-fold approach to address the current infestation, and then prevent new colonies from becoming established on your property. Our professionals will quickly locate the termite colony on your property and use a scientifically proven, targeted approach to eradicate the entire population. Then, we'll apply preventative treatments around your home's perimeter to ensure you don't have to worry about another infestation. ABC will then perform monitoring calls so you can have peace of mind that your biggest investment is protected.
Rats and mice will enter our home looking for food, water and shelter. When these pests nest in or around our home, they can contaminate our food, transmit diseases, damage our belongings and can even be capable of starting house fires by chewing through electrical wiring. Also, rodents commonly carry fleas and ticks with them, which can cause secondary infestations of these smaller pests. ABC can bring order back to your life by locating and removing these unwanted guests, then sealing up entry points that other rodents could use to gain entry to your home. We can also provide you with advice on how to make your home less attractive to these creatures in the future.
The ease of modern travel has, unfortunately, led to the resurgence of bed bugs. It’s easy to accidentally bring these pests home with us and when we do, their tiny size allows them to hide in even the tiniest crevices in our mattresses, furniture and baseboards. Bed bugs have proven to be extremely difficult for homeowners to get rid of on their own because they hide deep in crevices until they need to take a blood meal. Also, bed bugs usually only emerge when they feel the pressure of a living creature. To make matters worse, these pests can go long periods of time between feedings, so homeowners may believe their problem is gone, when in reality these pests are just waiting for their next meal. The pest control specialists at ABC know exactly where to look for bed bugs and can create a treatment plan that gets rid of your problem for good.
Tick & Flea Control
Although these pests are often thought to be associated with having a pet, you don’t need to have a furry friend to have ticks or fleas in your home. Fleas can cause incessant itching and are extremely difficult to control. While ticks don’t necessarily infest a home like fleas do, these parasites are capable of spreading diseases to humans such as Lyme disease. For a homeowner, calling in a pest control professional is the often best way to handle these pests. This is because these creatures require different methods of treatment at each of their life stages. Without the proper pest control treatment plan, you may become re-infested. ABC’s specialists can target these pests at each stage in their life so you can have peace of mind knowing these creatures are gone for good.
Mosquitoes are a growing issue in Moore as they only need about a bottle cap’s worth of water in order to reproduce. In addition to their bothersome bites, these flying pests are capable of spreading diseases such as the West Nile virus and the Zika virus. ABC uses two different mosquito control products to help reduce these populations around your property. One treatment method targets adult mosquitoes while the other targets mosquito breeding sites to prevent future mosquitoes from hatching on your property.
ABC is a family run business, so when we create your customized treatment plan, we do it with your family in mind. As a matter of fact, one of our core values is treating your home as if it was our own. As an extension of that philosophy, we will only choose products that we would use on our own property. In addition, we only select products that are specially formulated for residential use and we only use them in the lowest concentrations of chemicals possible. We believe in honesty and transparency, so your technician will be happy to address any of your questions and concerns.
We understand that homeowners would like to have any pest problems resolved in just one or two visits. However, pest problems often require multiple visits to ensure that pest populations have been eliminated and reproduction has been halted. Unfortunately, there is high pest activity here in Moore, so effective long-term control measures often require a more concerted effort. To prevent pest infestations, we recommend signing up for periodic treatments so you can have peace of mind knowing you’ll stay pest-free throughout the year.
Some of the factors that will influence how many treatments your property will require include the extent of your problem, the type of pest that has invaded your space, the season in which you’re experiencing the infestation and other unique factors that may make your property more vulnerable to an infestation. One reason we may recommend an inspection as opposed to an over the phone estimate is that we can gather more of the needed information to give you the most accurate estimate possible. It will also give us an opportunity to provide you with tailored advice on how to keep our property less attractive to pest problems in the future.
