Pest Control in Altamonte, FL
The picturesque parks, tree-lined streets and a strong sense of community in Altamonte Springs attract more residents each year. What’s not as great about our area is when unwelcome pests come to visit, especially when those are of the roach, rodent, termite, mosquito, bed bug, ant, flea, tick, bee or wasp variety. These creatures can pose serious health risks to you and your family, contaminate our food and damage our property. When it comes to pests control in Altamonte Springs, homeowners trust the locally-owned business known for getting long-term results: ABC Home & Commercial Services.
Effective Pest Control Solutions
ABC strives to exceed your expectations, every step of the way. That begins with a free inspection and a no-obligation, complimentary estimate.
What can you expect once you contact us to schedule a service? It depends on the severity of your case.
For the more straightforward pest issues, a simple phone call may be all we need to gather enough information to provide you with an estimate.
In many cases, however, we do prefer to set up an in-person meeting at your convenience to allow us to better design a treatment plan customized for your needs. In these cases, a trained inspector will come to your home to:
- Ask questions to learn more about the problem you are having
- Check for points of entry
- Determine what factors unique to your property might be putting you at an added risk for an infestation
- Locate any damage
- Assess the extent and severity of your pest activity
- Offer you a chance to ask any questions you might have about our approach and the course of treatment
Once we have answers to these questions, we’ll create a recommended treatment plan for you to review and approve. Upon your approval, we can make an appointment for your first service call.
The ABC Process
1. Contact ABC
When you contact us, we will schedule an inspection to get an understanding of the problem. In some cases, we can give you a quote over the phone.
2. Get An Estimate
If you have an inspection, we will send you a custom treatment plan and estimate afterward. Once we get your approval, we will schedule your treatment.
We will come to your property and treat for pests in common hiding and nesting areas. Over time, you will start seeing less and less pest activity.
Customers with our ongoing pest management services will receive periodic retreatments to prevent the return of the most common pests in our area.
Different types of pests in different life stages also require a unique approach to be effective, which is another reason we try to send an inspector to your property to learn more about the extent of your infestation.
In some cases, we can be successful after only a few visits. However, a vast majority of pest behavior is seasonal, meaning that in most cases, we need to make a return monitoring visit or schedule seasonal service calls to make sure our treatments have effectively reduced your pest population and halted the reproductive cycle.
Although this may come as a surprise, it’s completely normal for our customers to see a temporary uptick in pest activity immediately following a service call, as these creatures are evicted from hiding spots around your property. In time, you’ll begin seeing fewer and fewer pests, until your problem is a thing of the past.
We offer a full range of pest control services.
Frequently Asked Questions
I’m concerned about the impact of pest products on my kids, pets and the larger environment. What can you tell me about your treatments?
At the foundation of our work are the principles of Integrated Pest Management (IPM). Accepted by many institutions, including the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), as an effective approach, IPM places a special emphasis on prevention, in-depth knowledge of pest behavior and a focus on making an environment less favorable for pests to thrive. Through these tactics, chemical interventions are used as a last resort.
This could mean that our inspectors recommend installing protective mesh across any openings found around the exterior of your home to prevent rats from entering to build a nest. In some cases, reducing dense vegetation, keeping grass trimmed and removing firewood or compost bins can provide fewer hiding spots for both insects and larger types of wildlife. We may recommend making changes to your irrigation system to prevent water pooling in your yard, which can also make your grass vulnerable to several types of fungus and other pests.
When needed, we can and do use chemically-based products that have been specially formulated for use in residential environments and minimize the impact on your pets, children and the surrounding ecosystem. Our licensed applicators are specially trained to use these solutions in the lowest concentration possible, in small amounts, to targeted areas.
As a family-owned and run business, the well-being of your family is our top priority, as is protecting our customers from the many risks that pests pose.

Lucy Di Fonzo
“Today was the first visit, because I’ve been seeing lots of baby crickets inside my house. Eek!! I was thoroughly impressed with the service Ramad provided, and level of customer care he showed in addressing both my indoor and outdoor pest issues. He called me when he was on the way, and he was early! Yayy! He asked me questions to figure out what would be the best course of action to take in order to get the best extermination possible for my individual scenario. He was friendly and professional. He treated the whole house interior and exterior around the property, and put in for me to have a follow up appointment in a few days to see how the treatment is working for me. I was very impressed. I wish all companies had employees like him. He really seemed to care, and In today’s society that’s a rare thing to come by. Booking was easy and they got me in within a couple of days. The receptionist/scheduler who answered the phone was courteous and kind. I was called back by a tech (Brian) in less than 30 minutes, and and he asked me questions and informed me of the different services they offer as a company. So, start to finish this was really a great experience. I give it five stars and two thumbs up!!”
