Bed Bug Treatment in Rio Grande Valley, TX
Bed bugs are a serious problem everywhere. These tiny creatures can hitch a ride home on your luggage, backpacks and other belongings. If you’re battling a bed bug problem, you’re not alone. Count on ABC Home & Commercial Services for an effective treatment plan for bed bug control in the Rio Grande Valley. Our pros use proven methods to knock out bed bugs completely and get you resting easy again.
Our preferred treatment method is also the most environmentally and family friendly. Heat Remediation is a process of introducing high heat (130 degrees or more) into a room or rooms where bed bugs are an issue.
These high temperatures will kill off bed bugs at all stages of development without leaving any chemical residue or other substances behind. This treatment is extremely effective and allows you and your family to return home immediately.
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.
You may not be able to completely prevent bed bugs from entering your home, but you can help keep an infestation from spreading by being on the lookout for early signs of their presence. There are also some steps you can take to protect the parts of your home that may be the most vulnerable.
- Clean up clutter – keeping clutter to a minimum prevents giving bed bugs additional places to shelter.
- Regularly wash and heat-dry bed sheets, blankets, bedspreads and clothing that touche the floor. Bed bugs can even hide in laundry baskets, so be sure to clean these too when you do laundry.
- Monitor the things coming into your home – luggage, used furniture, and infested clothing can all be transports for bed bugs. Anytime you travel or have guests, inspect the things coming into your home for signs of bed bugs, and remove and clean them immediately.
- Mattress Encasement – While bed bug-proof mattress encasements don’t prevent a bed bug infestation, they can prevent the pests from infesting the mattress, which can help with bed bug detection and removal.
We offer a full range of pest control services.

What is tent fumigation service, and when is it needed for bed bug treatment?
Tent fumigation, or “tenting”, is a highly effective solution for eliminating serious bed bug infestations. Preparation for fumigation can be extensive, requires thoughtful coordination, and follows strict safety procedures. Tenting a home for bed bugs should always be done by a professional with proper certifications and licensing in order to be performed safely and effectively.
What safety rules does ABC follow when working with fumigant gas for bed bug treatment?
Safety is our number one priority with your home and your family. We adhere to strict guidelines set forth by the fumigant manufacturer as well as state and federal regulatory agencies. During all structural fumigations, ABC regularly monitors the fumigant levels within the structure for efficacy, as well as the air outside the structure. We use specially designed equipment capable of detecting fumigant levels as low as 1 part per million (ppm). We employ aeration times far exceeding what is required by law and confirm 0 ppm clearance levels multiple times before allowing you and your family to return to your home. Additionally, we follow all manufacturer recommendations, including not fumigating homes with attics enclosed in polyurethane spray foam insulation (PSFI).
We care about our customers, and want them to be informed about products and safe handling. For more information about gas treatment and safety measures, visit:
