Mike was fabulous. He was very polite and professional. Never once did I feel uncomfortable.
Absolutely! Based on which type of pest control you need, we may be able to give you an estimate right over the phone. In other cases, we recommend having one of our trained inspectors meet you at your home to allow us to learn more about your pest problem and to create a custom solution.
During this meeting, your inspector will:
- learn more about your concerns and see evidence of pest activity first-hand
- determine whether there are any conditions present on your property that might put you at a higher risk for an infestation
- assess the extent of your infestation
- record pest-related damage
- identify any pest species, as needed
- give you the opportunity to ask us about our approach and results
Once the inspection is over, we'll deliver a recommended treatment plan for you to review. As soon as we get your approval, we can make your first service call to get to work.
With decades of experience in the pest control industry, the knowledgeable and highly-skilled technicians at ABC Home & Commercial Services are capable of handling even the most stubborn pest problems.
ABC's experts are routinely dispatched across Oklahoma City to provide reliable, friendly and helpful:
Among the most resilient creatures on Earth, roaches can transmit disease, trigger allergic reactions, contaminate food and damage paper products and other belongings. Cockroaches can quickly infest even the cleanest of homes, with some species producing up to 10,000 offspring per adult female each year. Since these creatures can survive on almost any type of organic material, cutting off all potential food sources is extremely challenging. ABC's experts put their knowledge of pest behavior to work to pinpoint the source of your infestation and to target the areas roaches rest and breed to greatly reduce your cockroach population and prevent the next generation from surprising you late at night in the kitchen, bathroom or bedroom.
While wasps play an important role in nature, these stinging insects pose a threat to our loved ones, visitors and neighbors when they nest near our entryways, decks, patios, eaves and even in our grass and gardens. When disturbed, even by accident, wasps can and will sting, leaving the victim with a painful bite, and even more serious consequences if a person has an allergic reaction. ABC's pros can remove these nests, seal up any openings that might attract these creatures to your property and advise you on how to avoid close encounters with wasps in the future.
We rarely see just one ant, which can pose a problem for homeowners who can easily be overwhelmed by a sudden invasion of these common insects. Here in Oklahoma City, fire ants are a growing problem, particularly because they swarm when their conspicuous outdoor mounds are disturbed. When this happens, fire ants often attack, leaving victims with pustules after an incredibly painful sting. Although less dangerous, other ant species can find their way into our homes, which can become a nuisance when they file across your kitchen counter in search of food or travel in formation along your bathroom wall, seeking moisture. Since each type of ant requires a slightly different approach, ABC's technicians can determine the right combination of tactics to make your home and yard less attractive to these creatures.
Spider & Scorpion Removal
While neither spiders nor scorpions are aggressive, most homeowners want to steer clear of these creatures, and for good reason. Two spider species found here in Oklahoma are poisonous: the black widow and the brown recluse. Understandably, most of us don't stick around long enough to be certain about which type we came across while cleaning, going through items in the garage, getting a pair of shoes out of the back of the closet or bringing decorations down from the attic.
Another type of arachnid, scorpions, can sting humans when threatened, which can often happen by accident. While swelling around the area of the sting may be limited, a scorpion's venom can produce significant pain, and can require medical attention in the very young or elderly individuals.
ABC can help you avoid these situations by taking care of an infestation by either spiders or scorpions, identifying species of concern and returning for periodic monitoring to keep these populations to a minimum.
Wildlife & Rodent Control
Bed Bug Exterminator
Once again a public health concern, bed bugs infestations are on the rise across the country, including here in Oklahoma. Increasingly mobile populations have contributed to more reported cases in residential areas. Bed bugs have proven to be almost impossible for the average homeowner to control without the help of a professional. Why is that? First of all, these bloodsucking parasites tend to attack us under the cover of darkness, while we are asleep. Once the bed bug has fed on an unsuspecting victim, it retreats into the narrowest cracks and recesses of bedding, mattresses, headboards, furniture and even baseboards for long periods of time, making repeated infestations quite common. ABC's experts know exactly where to look for these tiny parasites and what approaches are most effective to get rid of these bothersome pests.
Tick & Flea Control
As a family-owned and operated business, our highest priority is the well-being of the families and the communities we serve. That's why we have carefully selected treatment products which balance two goals: being effective while being low-impact.
Our trained and experienced technicians use only products designed for residential settings. We apply treatment products in low concentrations which target areas the specific pests you are having problems with are known to breed and rest. We run our business on a foundation of honesty and transparency, so if you have any questions or concerns about our approach or treatment plan, we are happy to address those at any time.
We completely understand that our customers would prefer to hear that all pest problems can be resolved in just a visit or two, but unfortunately, that is often not the case. Pest pressure in the Oklahoma City area is high, which means that we often recommend that our customers sign up for periodic treatments so that our technicians can protect you from a variety of different types of pests, year-round.
Some of the factors which will influence both how long and how often we will need to treat your home include the extent of your problem, the season you experience a problem, the pest or pests that have infested your property and anything that might be unique to your situation which may make your infestation either easier or harder to resolve. One of the reasons we recommend having an inspector visit your property is that we can often gather the information we need to present you with a tailored plan and to give you a better idea of how we can keep pests away from your home, for good.
Frequency of service will depend on the assessment during initial inspection and the pest problem you are facing. Some pests can be taken care of with a single treatment and one-time follow up, while others will need initial treatment plus regular treatments to prevent their return.
Each time your ABC Pest Specialist visits your home for scheduled service, you can expect the following:
- We will inspect the interior of your home, including the attic and crawl spaces, treating as necessary
- We will inspect and treat the exterior of your home to eliminate pest entry
- We will treat all weep holes with dust material and copper wool
- We will treat all cracks with dust material
