Yes, we do. Whether you have a small or large problem on your hands, we can send someone out to your home to provide you with a complimentary inspection. Depending on your problem, we may even be able to give you an estimate over the phone. However, most of the time, we prefer to see the extent of the problem ourselves.
When one of our licensed technicians comes to your home, you can expect them to:
- Ask you questions about what you have experienced with the pests in or around your home.
- Examine your home for any entry points and look for any other factors that may make your home more inviting for pests.
- Assess your home for pest-related damage.
- Take note of the extent of your infestation and, if need be, identify what pests have invaded your home.
- Give you an opportunity to ask questions about the pests and treatment plans.
When we have finished up the inspection, your pest control professional will present you with a recommended treatment plan that is customized to your home. Upon approval, we will schedule the first service call.
Here in Norman, we help homeowners with a wide variety of pest infestations, both large and small.
Our skilled pest professionals can help with:
If you have ever struggled with eradicating cockroaches in your home, you’re not alone. These bugs are extremely resilient and have lived on Earth longer than humans. These pests can transmit disease, make allergies flare up, contaminate food and damage paper products and other belongings.
No matter how clean your home is, these pests can still invade. Roaches are so difficult to eradicate without the help of a professional because they reproduce so quickly. Some species can produce up to 10,000 offspring in one year, which explains how a home can get overrun in a short period of time. These pesky pests can also survive on almost any organic matter. ABC's skilled professionals can locate hiding and breeding spots and eradicate roaches from your home. We can also educate you on ways to make your home uninviting for roaches.
Wasps can become quite a menace for homeowners, as these stinging insects can make nests near entryways, decks, patios, eaves and in our gardens. While wasps do play an important role in our ecosystem, their sting is extremely painful—even more so if you’re allergic. An ABC team member can remove any nests around your home and seal up any openings that might look like a potential home to any new pests. We will also leave you with advice on how to avoid these pests in the future.
You nearly forget these pests exist until you see a line of these insects walking on your kitchen counter. While any ant invasion is unfortunate, fire ants are particularly dangerous and their population has been growing here in Norman's residential areas. If you find a fire ant mound, you won't want to deal with the problem yourself. When these mounds are disturbed, these ants will swarm their attacker and bite them, leaving swollen pustules after a painful sting. No matter what type of ant is creating an issue, call in ABC. We have effective treatment plans for different ant species and can give you tips on how to keep these pests away from you and your property in the future.
Spider & Scorpion Control
Spiders and scorpions always seem to appear when we least expect it, such as when we are grabbing tools out of the garage, picking out a pair of shoes we rarely wear in the closet or pulling sentimental items out of the attic. While these pests are not usually aggressive, if trapped, they can bite or sting us in self-defense. Matters can become more serious if you have a venomous spider in your home. The two species of venomous spiders here in Norman are black widows and brown recluses. It can be very difficult for homeowners to identify which species of spider has invaded their home because, understandably, no one wants to stick around too long after finding one of these pests.
While scorpions can be intimidating, no fatally poisonous scorpions have been discovered in Norman. Nevertheless, their sting is not pleasant and will hurt. Some stings require medical attention.
One of our licensed pest professionals can come to your home and advise you on the best next steps.
Termites cost homeowners in the U.S. alone billions of dollars each year in damage. These pests are capable of causing structural damage because feed at the wood in our home closest to the ground. Most of the time, by the time we've spotted these destructive pests, the damage has already been done. These stealthy creatures burrow underground until they reach a food source. Once they do, suberranean termites can eat for twenty-four hours a day, every day. Some colonies can reach over one million members.
ABC can help with your termite problem by eliminating the entire colony and preventing the return of these insects. Our experts can apply proven treatments along the exterior of your home and come back for regularly scheduled monitoring calls. This is the best way to ensure that your largest investment is protected.
Finding wildlife that has invaded your home is not only terrifying because of its size, but also because these animals often carry other pests with them, such as fleas and ticks. These bigger pests can cause damage to your home by knocking over trash cans, chewing through wires, contaminating your food and spreading diseases to your family and your pets.
When you call in the professionals from ABC, you can rest easy knowing that we will locate and remove the pest that has invaded your property. Afterward, we will seal off any entry points that future pests may use to enter your home. We can also leave you with guidance on how to make your home look less appealing to these unwanted guests.
The rise of travel across the United States is a major factor in the rise of bed bug infestations. You might find these bugs in mattresses at hotels or homes, in luggage, in furniture and even on airplane seats. These parasites are also extremely difficult for the average homeowner to eradicate on their own, as they only come out when it's dark and they sense there is a blood meal nearby.
Once the bed bug has gotten its fill, it will go back to its hiding spot and stay out of view until hunger strikes. Due to their tiny size, bed bugs can squeeze into even the smallest cracks and crevices. Our pest control experts will be able to locate and eliminate the bed bugs in your home, no matter where they might be hiding.
Tick & Flea Control
Having a pet is not a prerequisite for having ticks or fleas—these pests will settle for our blood if they can't find a dog or cat nearby. If you do have a pet and find yourself dealing with a flea infestation, just putting a flea collar on the family dog isn't going to cut it. Fleas reproduce rapidly, and they require different methods of treatment, depending on where they are in their life cycle.
Ticks usually latch onto us or our pets when we are in an area where populations are more concentrated, such as in parks or on grassy hikes. Ticks can be particularly dangerous, as they can spread illnesses to humans, such as Lyme disease.
If you find yourself cohabiting with either of these pests, give us a call. We will be able to locate and eradicate your fleas and ticks so you can return to life as normal.
Mosquitoes can make hanging out in our yards a lot less enjoyable. While getting one of their itchy bites is annoying on its own, these biting insects can also transmit diseases like the West Nile virus and the Zika virus. Norman homeowners who take advantage of an ABC treatment plan will receive targeted treatments that have been proven to be effective on adult mosquitoes, as well as solutions and techniques to attack mosquito larvae to make your mosquito population dwindle.

In some cases, we are able to remove your pests in just one or two visits.
