We understand that if you have a pest control problem on your hands, you want someone to your home sooner, rather than later. When you give us a call, we will arrange to have one of our inspectors meet you at your home quickly to assess your situation and recommend next steps. During this examination, our inspector will:
- Ask you questions about your current pest control problem to learn the extent and severity of your issues.
- Inspect your home for any pest entry points, any damage these unwelcome guests may have caused and look at what may be attracting insects and other animals to your home and property.
- Examine your home for any environmental factors that could be making it easier for pests to invade, such as overgrown vegetation.
- Sit down with you and answer any questions that you may have about suggested treatment options and what to expect during your service calls.
After your approval, we will go ahead and schedule your first treatment call.
Here in Port Orange, we help homeowners deal with a number of different pests. No matter the extent of your infestation, ABC can help with:
Palmetto Bug and Roach Control
Palmetto bugs, also known as croton bugs, roaches and water bugs, are relentless pests that can make even the cleanest of homes their own. While roaches don’t bite or sting us, like some other pests, these creatures can spread diseases, exacerbate allergens, ruin books, contaminate food and leave behind a foul smell. To make matters worse, they are extremely durable creatures, and getting rid of them on your own can feel like an impossible feat. Roaches can survive almost anything and they reproduce rapidly. To ensure you’ve eradicated all of your cockroaches, it’s easiest to call in a professional.
Termites are sneaky little bugs that travel through underground tunnels to reach the foundation of our home. Once they get there, these voracious insects will eat 24 hours a day, every day. Because the most destructive species are subterranean, by the time we first spot termites, in many cases they’ve already caused tremendous damage. As a matter of fact, termites are responsible for billions of dollars in property losses to U.S. homes every year. If you suspect you may have termites, your safest bet is calling in a pest control professional from ABC.
Not only are mosquito bites obnoxious, but they can also cause us serious harm. Mosquitoes can transmit diseases such as the Zika and West Nile viruses, and while large-scale efforts have been put in place to protect us from mosquitoes, it can still be nearly impossible to control these bothersome pests. Through a variety of different treatment plans, we can help eradicate mosquitoes, no matter what their life stage.
Unfortunately, bed bugs have made a resurgence here in Port Orange due to the booming tourism economy. Eliminating bed bugs is extremely tricky, because they are so tiny that they can hide in all the crevices in your mattress and bedding, and they only come out when they sense that a victim is resting. It can be extremely difficult for homeowners to locate and eradicate all of these minute pests on their own. When one of our professionals treats your home, you can rest assured that our pros will choose from the most effective options and methods to get rid of these pests for good.
Nothing is quite as startling as turning on the garage light at night and spotting a larger animal that's decided to make your home its own. Creatures like rodents and raccoons are animals which may be fine in their natural habitats, but they can carry other smaller pests on them too, such as fleas and ticks. Due to their larger nature, these unwelcome houseguests have the ability to cause more damage. They can chew through electrical wires, eat our food, knock over trash cans and cause other damage to our home. If you have wildlife that is creating a big headache for you, we can locate these animals and remove them from your property. We will also help you by sealing off any entry points that they may have been using to get into your home and provide you with guidance on how to keep these animals away for good.
Yes, bats are great at eating tiny, unwanted bugs in your garden, but they can also carry up to 60 different diseases that can be transmitted to humans. These winged mammals can also be quite loud at night and usually have a bad smell. Bats often like to nest up in our attics, roofs and fascia. Our skilled technicians can help remove bats from your property humanely and provide you with solutions to prevent them from deciding your property is where they would prefer to roost.
While bees are an integral part of our ecosystem here in Port Orange, they also have a painful sting that can cause swelling and other health problems, especially if you’re allergic. Bees and wasps like to build nests near our entryways and patios, and can keep you from fully enjoying your outdoor areas. One of our pest specialists can help eliminate, remove or relocate the bees or wasps that reside near your home.
Tick & Flea Control
You may think that you need a furry creature in the home to have fleas, but that’s not necessarily true. If you have fleas and get bitten, you may be subject to incessant itching, which can also lead to secondary infections. These pests can also be hosts for dog tapeworms, which can result in even more serious consequences.
While the tick species that live in Florida tend to prefer dogs, these creatures have still been known to latch onto humans and can spread serious diseases to us, such as Lyme disease. Whether you find yourself with a flea or tick infestation, you can count on ABC's skilled technicians to help you out.
While many homeowners have a fear of spiders, these creatures tend not to be aggressive towards us. However, there are a few species of poisonous spiders here in Florida, including black widows and brown recluses. We can accidentally frighten these spiders if they are hiding in storage boxes, between folds of our clothes, in our garage, under furniture and hiding in other nooks and crannies. Our pest professionals can help you identify what kind of spiders you have on your property and advise you on whether or not you should take action to remove any potentially dangerous types. We can also provide advice to you on how to make your home less attractive to spiders going forward.
No matter how clean you keep your home, you can still fall victim to an ant infestation. Ants can contaminate your food and tunnel through wood, and some species even bite. Here in Florida, the most common types of ants are carpenter ants, ghost ants, acrobat ants, pharaoh ants, fire ants and rover ants. When you call in a professional from ABC, you will have the benefit of having an expert on your property who will identify what species of ant has invaded your home. In addition, our pro can examine your home for any ant entry points, seal off those entry points, treat the nest and eradicate any remaining ants in your home.
Among ABC's top priorities are the well-being of your family, your home and the environment. Before starting any treatment plan, we provide you with the opportunity to ask any questions about our processes or the products we use. We go through an extensive research process when choosing our products because we want them to be low-impact on you and the larger environment. We always use products that are specially formulated for residential use and use the lowest concentration of chemicals possible.
On top of this, we incorporate the principles of Integrated Pest Management (IPM) into our processes. This means that we start with preventative measures that make your home less attractive to pests and then turn to other interventions when necessary.
Because every pest problem is unique, so is every treatment plan. As a matter of fact, we create a customized set of recommendations for every home that we service. Sometimes pest problems only require a couple of visits. However, most of the time, we will need to come to your home multiple times to ensure that we have eradicated your pest population entirely.
Some of our treatment plans are designed for a specific season or a specific life stage of the pest, in which case we would need to come back for additional monitoring visits. Many of our customers choose ABC to perform preventative services to ensure their home is protected year round.
Yes! ABC is happy to help businesses in Port Orange with pest control. Commercial properties have different needs than homes, when it comes to handling pest infestations, which is why we have technicians who are specially trained to provide effective long-term solutions for the issues different industries face.
