Termite Control in Rio Grande Valley, TX
Termites wreak havoc and cause billions in building and construction damage annually. If you think you have an infestation, contact ABC Home & Commercial Services for help. Our trained specialists have proven methods to control your termite problem. With ABC's assistance, you can have peace of mind that your home is safe.
ABC will send out an experienced termite specialist to inspect your home for the location of the termites and evaluate actual termite damage. We’ll explain the findings to you and make you aware of all your treatment options. The type of termite inhabiting the home and the severity of the infestation will influence the treatment methodology and our recommendations.
If we find evidence of termites, we will devise a treatment plan that may include the use of Termidor – one of the best and most effective products available. The treatment involves placing the product into the soil around the slab of your home. This specific treatment causes termites to carry the bait back to their nests and transfer it to others by sharing food. Within a short time, the entire colony will die.
In the case of Subterranean termites, we normally apply a liquid treatment everywhere that we find the termites or where we find conditions conducive for termites to flourish. In the case of Drywood termites, we’ll likely recommend fumigation as the best way to eradicate the problem. However, every case is evaluated upon its own unique needs, and homeowners help decide the best solution for their home.
If you are building a new property, consider calling us to install our tried and true Termimesh system. Termimesh is a 100% effective steel mesh that is installed along with the slab of the home. It prevents termites from accessing your house, is non-toxic and provides permanent termite protection.

What can I do to prevent termites?
In a new home build, installing Termimesh is 100% effective at preventing termites.
For existing structures, there are several key measures to take for termite prevention. Keeping any lumber, dead trees, and other wood debris as far from the foundations and walls of your home as possible will minimize the risk of termites. Locating standing water, leaky spigots, and other sources of moisture is also important and effective. Moisture and wood are termites’ favorite mixture, and eliminating the two can go a long way toward preventing termites from ever visiting your property.
Regular visual inspection of your home and slab is the best method for awareness of an infestation and handling the problem.
What is tent fumigation service, and when is it needed for termite treatment?
Tent fumigation, or “tenting”, is a highly effective solution for eliminating severe termite infestations. Preparation for fumigation can be extensive, requires thoughtful coordination, and follows strict safety procedures. Tenting a home for termites should always be done by a professional with proper certifications and licensing in order to be performed safely and effectively.
What rules does ABC follow with regards to safety when using fumigant gas for termite treatment?
Safety is our number one priority when treating your home and working for 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 and the air outside the structure for efficacy. 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 practices. For more information about gas treatment and safety measures, please visit:
