We understand that at the first sign of a pest, you want to get a professional to your home as quickly as possible. Reach out to us and we will schedule an appointment at our soonest availability. When your ABC inspector comes to your home, you can expect this trained professional to:
- Ask you questions about the pests you've seen on your property
- Examine your home for potential pest entry points and areas of high pest activity
- Take note of any pest-related damage
- Identify any environmental or structural issues that may make your home more susceptible to a pest infestation
- Give you the opportunity to ask us any questions about the pests, our treatment options or the products we use
At the end of our inspection, we will provide you with a customized treatment plan. Upon your approval, we will schedule the first service call so treatment can begin.
ABC can help homeowners and business owners with any type of pest they may have on their property. We can provide you with everything from prevention to treatment options for any size infestation. We most frequently get calls regarding:
Palmetto Bug & Roach Control
Palmetto bug, roach or water bug—it doesn't matter what you call these pests—you don't want them anywhere near your property. Unfortunately, these pests are capable of invading even the cleanest of homes, and when they do, they can contaminate food, damage belongings and leave behind a foul smell. Palmetto bugs are difficult for homeowners to control on their own because they can survive on nearly any organic matter. Worse still, these creatures are prolific breeders. When you call in ABC, we will be able to quickly locate and target their nesting and breeding areas so you don't have to worry about another late-night run-in with one of these pests.
These pests are responsible for costing homeowners in the United States billions of dollars worth of damage each year. Termites chew away at the cellulose in our wood, which weakens a home's structural integrity. Subterranean termites, a common species of termite here in Florida, can easily go unnoticed because they tunnel underground in search of a food source. When termites do find this nourishment, they will eat all day, every day. Unfortunately, they commonly settle on a home's foundation and do extensive damage. ABC can treat the colony and put preventative measures in place to ensure that you have no future infestations.
Mosquitoes are notorious for their itchy bites. However, these insects are also well-known for spreading diseases such as the West Nile virus. While public health organizations have put measures in place to try to control mosquito populations, these pests are extremely difficult to manage because they need only minimal amounts of water to reproduce. An ABC pest control professional can help eradicate adult mosquitoes on your property as well as prevent the next generation of mosquitoes from causing an even bigger problem on your property.
The resurgence of bed bugs is partially due to the ease of modern travel. These pests easily hatch a ride home with us in our luggage. When they come into our home, these parasites quickly hide in the seams of our mattresses, furniture and baseboards. Bed bug bites can cause intense itching, and can even lead to secondary infections. Calling in a pest control professional who can locate bed bugs and apply effective treatments is the quickest way to manage these infestations, particularly because of the emotional toll of a bed bug problem on your household.
Larger pests like rats, mice, opossums and raccoons can often become a big headache for homeowners. When these animals make their way onto our property, they can contaminate food, transmit disease and frighten our children and pets. In addition, rodents can cause damage to our home by gnawing on drywall, wood and electrical wires due to their constant need to shave down their evergrowing teeth. Removing these animals on your own can feel like an overwhelming task if you don't know where to find them and how to best remove them. Let ABC handle the hard work for you. We can set traps and, when possible, humanely remove these creatures from your property.
While bats can eat insects in our yard, they are also loud, smelly and capable of spreading over 50 different diseases to humans. Handling a bat problem on your own is not only difficult because they're flying, dangerous creatures, but it is also challenging because there are many Florida regulations in place to protect mother bats raising their pups. Instead of putting yourself at risk for health conditions or having to learn more about state regulations, rely on ABC to humanely remove bats from your property. We will also take steps to make sure these unwelcome guests don't return.
While bees and wasps are an important part of our ecosystem, they don't make the best neighbors. When bees or wasps build nests in our entryways, patios, decks or trees, going outside can become a nerve-wracking experience. This is especially true if you or one of your family members is allergic to these pests' stings. One of our specialists can remove and, whenever possible, safely relocate the nest so you can go back to enjoying your yard.
Flea & Tick Control
Although fleas and ticks are often associated with pets, you don't need to have a dog or a cat in order to have a problem. Fleas reproduce rapidly, and the tiny bites they leave all over your feet and ankles can make you itch incessantly. Ticks, on the other hand, tend to latch on until they are full. These parasites are capable of spreading diseases to humans, such as Lyme disease. When dealing with ticks and fleas, calling in a pest control professional is often a necessity. This is because each life cycle requires different treatments, so if you don't properly eradicate these pests at each life stage, you could deal with a recurrence just when you thought the problem was solved.
Spider & Scorpion Control
Despite their intimidating appearance, spiders and scorpions are not aggressive creatures. Unfortunately, sometimes when we do run into these creatures when grabbing something out of the back of the closet or in our attic, the fight or flight instinct of these creatures can kick in, and you may be the victim of a bite or sting. Here in Florida, there are only two species of poisonous spider you need to keep an eye out for: the black widow and the brown recluse. If you've had an uncomfortable level of spider activity around your home and would like a professional's help with identifying the species on your property, we can help. We can also help eliminate spider and scorpion populations around your property and provide you with advice on how to keep these creatures away in the future.
Here in Florida, we have many different species of ants, including carpenter ants, ghost ants, acrobat ants, pharoah ants, fire ants and rover ants. Although they are tiny, these insects can contaminate our food, cause damage to our home and even bite. ABC can locate ant entry points, seal them off and treat the ant populations around your property. We can also provide you with advice on how to keep ants away going forward.
As a family-run business, our top priority is your family, your pets and the environment. We only use products that are specially formulated for residential use. When treating your property, we will use the lowest concentration of chemicals possible that will still be effective. Feel free to ask our technicians any questions about our products, as they will be happy to address any of your concerns.
How frequently we service your home is dependent on a few different factors. When building out a customized treatment plan, we will consider the type of pest that has invaded your home, the extent of the infestation and the season in which your infestation took place when deciding how many times we will need to treat your property. In addition, many pests have cyclical life stages, so monitoring calls are often the best way to keep these pests away for good.
