I can call ABC and speak with a real live local person. They schedule things quick and address billing issues fast. John, our service technician, always calls the day before and schedules times convenient for us. John listens to our concerns and offers useful advice in addition to treatment. Most important, our dog loves him which really tells us he is genuine and trustworthy.
When you call us, we’ll find the next available opportunity for an inspector to visit your home. During this complimentary visit, our inspector will:
Learn more from you about the extent of your pest problem
Conduct a preliminary inspection to identify entry points, what might be attracting the pests and what damage may have already occurred
Check for any environmental factors, such as structural issues, that could be making your property more vulnerable to pests
Answer any questions you might have about treatment options and what to expect on subsequent service calls
With all of this information, ABC will create a customized treatment plan for you.
Once you approve the estimate, we will reach out to you to schedule the first service call at a time that is convenient for you to begin treatment.
The experienced pest control technicians at ABC can handle all of your pest problems. Orlando homeowners rely on ABC to help with:
Palmetto Bugs and Roaches
Whether you call them palmetto bugs, croton bugs, roaches or water bugs, these pervasive pests can, unfortunately, infest even the cleanest of homes. In addition to spreading diseases and producing allergens, cockroaches can ruin books, contaminate food and leave behind a long-lasting foul smell. Roaches are highly adaptive, prolific and can live off virtually any organic matter, so homeowners often face a challenge when trying to control them on their own.
Termites cause billions of dollars of damage in the United States alone each year. The most common termites we find here in Florida are subterranean termites which feed on wood in our homes and live in colonies which can contain up to a million members. Since these termites travel to your home through underground tunnels, homeowners often don’t discover these pests until they have already done significant structural damage. Protecting your biggest investment means that you should only trust termite treatment to established, experienced pest professionals.
Not only are mosquito bites a nuisance, but also these insects can transmit serious diseases to humans, including the Zika and West Nile viruses. Large-scale efforts by municipal governments have been largely ineffective in controlling mosquito populations, and Orlando homeowners find that it’s virtually impossible to control these pests on their own. ABC’s unique and innovative methods help you manage these pesky pests so that you can enjoy your outdoor spaces again.
For such a tiny creature, bed bugs cause significant headaches for homeowners. Bed bugs have become much more common in recent years, particularly in areas like Orlando where we see a lot of travelers. People who are bitten by bed bugs can experience a severe allergic reaction at worst, and at best, usually itching and a loss of sleep. Since it’s virtually impossible to find every bed bug in every crack and crevice in your home, we use several methods to control these pests, including applying a chemical spot treatment to kill the live insects if they have infested your home.
As much as we may fear smaller insects, homeowners almost universally detest the site of rodents and other types of wildlife when they hang around on our property. These larger pests are capable of more significant damage, whether that means chewing through electrical wires, eating our food or just generally causing a mess. Rats and mice can also spread the plague and other serious illnesses. Since these animals are experts at hiding, ABC can help you identify exactly what pest you are dealing with, as well and locate possible entry points and suggest changes you can make so that your property is less attractive to these large, destructive pests.
Bats are a very important part of Orlando’s natural environment. However, these mammals can transmit rabies, produce a strong odor and be noisy if they decide to roost in our attics, roofs and fascia. ABC can help humanely remove bats from your property and take steps to make sure they don’t return.
Central Florida’s climate is perfect for many bee and wasp species. When these insects build a hive near our homes, our families and pets are at risk of experiencing the pain and discomfort of a sting. If anyone in your family is allergic to bee stings, chances are that you’ll want to have the colony safely relocated elsewhere. ABC’s pest specialists can have these insects removed and safely relocated when possible.
Fleas & Ticks
Flea bites can cause intense itching in humans and pets, which can lead to secondary infections. These small creatures can also be hosts for dog tapeworms. The tick species found in Florida prefers to attack dogs, but can infest homes and bite humans. Ticks can spread serious diseases, including Lyme disease. Both flea and tick infestations are challenging, since your pets can be responsible for bringing these pests into your home. ABC can help treat your home for fleas and ticks and provide flea collars to protect your pets from these persistent pests.
Spiders are generally not aggressive toward humans, but several species found here in Florida are venomous. Black widow and brown recluse spiders can find refuge in storage boxes, tucked inside folded clothes, in your garage, under your furniture and in closets. ABC’s pest experts can help you identify the spiders in your home and suggest ways to keep these creepy crawly creatures away.
Ants are everywhere, but you may not want them inside your home. These pests can contaminate your food, tunnel through wood and bite, sometimes causing swelling and major discomfort. Here in Florida, we are most likely to see carpenter ants, ghost ants, acrobat ants, pharoah ants, fire ants and rover ants. ABC can help find out how ants might be entering your home, seal these entry points, treat the nest and address any remaining live ants inside your home.
ABC’s top priority is the health and safety of our customers. Our experienced pest control technicians can address any concerns you might have about treatment options and the products we will use in and around your home. All of the products we use are formulated for residential use and applied carefully in low concentrations.
At ABC, we apply an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) philosophy to the work we do, which means that suggest non-chemical interventions to make your property less attractive to pests. Whenever possible, we try to relocate animals humanely using live traps and other measures.
Each ABC treatment plan is custom designed to address the specific problem you are having. Different pests require different treatment methods, and the frequency of treatment can also vary, based on the extent of your problem.
Some pest problems can be resolved in just a few visits, while others require additional follow-up visits. Since treatment products are designed to be effective for a specific time period, our technicians may recommend a return visit at regular intervals to ensure pests don’t return to your property.
