Absolutely! The last thing we want is our customers having to deal with are unexpected or unwanted charges. That's why we begin our process with an assessment by an experienced inspector. After the free inspection, we will provide you with a no-obligation estimate with a recommended treatment plan. Once you approve the plan we designed especially for you, we can schedule the first service call.
Although we prefer to schedule an in-person inspection, in some cases, we may be able to give you an estimate over the phone once we get more information about the problem you are having.
Winter Park residents would much rather be enjoying all our area has to offer, rather than spending precious free time on a pest infestation.
ABC is happy to provide reliable, friendly pest control services for home and business owners in Central Florida, including:
Roach, Palmetto Bug and Water Bug Control
What is something cockroaches need to survive? Water. What do we have in abundance here in Winter Park? Water. It's no wonder that these creatures routinely find their way into our homes, where they can contaminate our food, spread illnesses, worsen allergies and asthma and damage textiles and paper products. Not to mention just the general "ugh" factor when you spot one running across your bathroom floor or hanging out in your kitchen.
Roaches have lived on Earth longer than humans and have adapted to be quite resilient to survive in urban areas. This pest's ability to live on almost anything in even the cleanest of houses means that homeowners have a particularly hard time handling roach problems on their own. ABC's pros can quickly identify how cockroaches are finding their way into your home and target resting and nesting areas so you can stop an infestation in its tracks.
The nickname "silent destroyers" fits this pest well, since termites often attack your home through underground tunnels are blamed for more than $5 billion in damage to U.S. homes annually. Unlike roaches that we see and termites that bite us, termite damaage can often go undetected for quite some time—sometimes until significant structural problems are discovered. ABC uses scientifically-proven methods to eliminate entire termite colonies and monitor your property so that you can prevent these dangerous wood-eating insects from returning.
In our temperature climate here in Winter Park, the mosquito season can last from April to October. That means we rarely get a break from these blood-sucking insects, which are more than just a nuisance. In addition to the allergic reaction some of us experience after getting bitten, these pests can transmit a number of diseases, including the West Nile and Zika viruses. If you can't spend five minutes in your yard without getting bitten, ABC can help. Our technicians use low-impact, but effective treatments to address both mosquito eggs and adult insects so that your family is protected throughout this pest's life cycle.
The greater Orlando area has experienced a record-breaking number of tourists in recent years, which, unfortunately, makes us all more vulnerable to bed bug infestations. Once these tiny pests find their way into our homes, they can attack us while we are sleeping, leaving us with itchy, irritating welts and then disappearing into the smallest cracks and crevices in our bedrooms and living rooms. A homeowner's nightmare, bed bugs are almost impossible to eradicate on your own. ABC's experts can quickly identify the source of your problem and resolve your problem through a targeted treatment program so that your problem will soon be a thing of the past.
Rats. Mice. Raccoons. Squirrels. In their natural environment, most Winter Park homeowners have no problem with these animals. It's when we find evidence of these creatures in our attics, our crawl spaces and our garages that issues can arise. Damaged electrical wiring, overturned trash cans, disease-carrying droppings and an influx of ticks and fleas that come in on these animals' fur are just a few of the downsides of having rodents and wildlife in your home and yard. ABC can determine how these creatures are gaining entry and what could be attracting them so these animals can be humanely located, gaps can be sealed along your home's exterior and we can take other measures to prevent these animals from making your home theirs.
Florida is home to over a dozen bat species, several of which are endangered. Although these mammals can perform natural insect control, they can expose your family to health risks, including rabies and histoplasmosis. ABC's technicians can protect your family by helping you confirm possible bat roosting areas on your property and taking steps to make your home less attractive to these creatures so that they can live elsewhere.
Like bats, bees perform an important role in our ecosystem as a pollinator. But when they come too close to our entryways, decks, porches and patios, these stinging insects can pose a threat to our families, friends, visitors and neighbors, particularly for those individuals who have a bee sting allergy. ABC can work with you to remove beehives and wasp nests and recommend ways to prevent these insects from making a return visit.
Tick & Flea Control
A common myth is that you can only get fleas and ticks inside your home if you have pets. Unfortunately, there are other ways these parasites can find their way into your house. Once they are there, ticks can transmit serious illnesses, including Lyme disease, and fleas can quickly make you and any household pets miserable. One of the reasons fleas and ticks are so hard for homeowners to control on their own is that you have to target the treatment to the different life stages of the pest. ABC technicians are well-versed in the biology of fleas and ticks and use this knowledge to design a treatment plan that will work for you.
Scorpion & Spider Control
While seeing a roach in your home might make you jump, coming across a spider or scorpion can send a real shiver down your spine. The worst part is that some species are poisonous—although very few of us know exactly which types nor can identify them easily. That's where ABC can help. Our pros can help you separate the harmless creatures from those you need to avoid and help keep spiders and scorpions from taking up residence in your garage, closets, attics and living spaces.
Youch! That's the most common reaction of Winter Park residents when they come across ants in their home and yard. In addition to the painful sting that some ant species deliver, some varieties can become an eyesore if you find them snaking across your kitchen sink or winding their way up your bathroom wall. ABC's experienced technicians can find how they are getting inside, seal any cracks to keep them out and deliver practical, effective solutions for any other types of ant that's causing you headaches.
As an independently-owned and run business that is proud to call the Orlando area home, the well-being of your family is our top concern. That's why we only use products that we would use in our own home, in low concentrations and applied carefullly, to minimize the impact on children, furry family members and the ecosystem in which we live.
We are always happy to answer any specific questions you might have about the products we plan to use on your property and address any concerns you have.
Since your treatment program is customized based on what type of pest you have on your property and the extent of your problem, there is no one-size-fits-all answer to this common question.
While we can give you some information when you first reach out to us about the usual course of treatment, we prefer to schedule an in-person inspection, as this gives us the best understanding of your specific issues and the best methods to address them. Some infestations only require a handful of visits. The more common scenario, however, involves periodic follow-up calls to prevent a re-infestation.
Our technicians are happy to answer any questions you might have about the treatment plan that will be most effective to help resolve your pest problems—for good.
