We know how disruptive a pest problem can be. That’s why we can occasionally provide estimates over the phone for more basic treatments. Typically, we base our estimates on the size of the area that needs treatment.
More often than not, we prefer a more customized route to treating your property, due to the wide range of variables that can change the way we approach your personal pest situation. Once you either give us a call at (210) 599-9500 or contact us online, we’ll schedule a time for one of our specialists to meet you at your home to conduct an initial assessment of your situation and provide you with an estimate for treatment options.
As we wrap up our inspection, we will provide you with a complimentary estimate. Upon your approval, we will schedule your first service call.
In Alamo Heights, homeowners routinely reach out to ABC to provide effective pest control for the following unwelcome guests:
If you spot one cockroach, chances are that there are plenty more lurking in dark corners and other out of the way spots. These pests invade your home and your pantry, transmitting disease-causing bacteria, contaminating your food and leaving behind excrement known to worsen allergies. Because of their sheer adaptability and prolific breeding habits, this is one pest you are most likely going to need a professional to eradicate for you. ABC knows where these pests like to hide and can implement measures to halt the roach reproductive cycle as well as eliminate adult roaches.
Mosquitoes here in Alamo Heights are virtually unavoidable, as the mature trees and humid weather make for the perfect nesting and breeding grounds for these biting insects. Not only are bites itchy and irritating, but these pests are capable of transmitting serious diseases to us, such as the West Nile virus, Zika virus and dengue fever. If you’re frustrated with the number of mosquitoes on your property, contact ABC. Our experienced technicians will implement measures to eliminate adult mosquitoes and neutralize breeding grounds, so you can feel relaxed in your yard once again.
Greater San Antonio has become a major tourist destination, and because of overall increases in travel patterns, bed bugs infestations have become more common, becoming a serious concern for public health officials. Just a few of the reasons that these bugs are so difficult to control without the help of a professional is their minute size, their rapid rate of reproduction and their ability to go extended periods of time without feeding, leading us to sometimes mistakenly believe a problem is resolved, only to have bed bugs reappear. ABC can inspect your home for bed bugs and implement targeted treatments so you can get a good night's sleep.
Our biggest investment is at risk when termites infest our homes. Subterranean termites attack from the ground up and are often stealthy enough to go completely unnoticed until irreparable damage has been done. ABC’s experienced termite professionals are trained to spot signs of termite activity and help protect your property from additional damage. Additionally, we offer ongoing monitoring plans so our technicians will be able to spot any signs of future termite activity before a full-blown infestation has taken place.
The bigger the pest is, the greater the impact it can have on your property. Mice, rats, birds, raccoons and opossums all are attracted for the same reasons: shelter, water and food. The wildlife and rodent control specialists at ABC perform a thorough inspection in order to determine every possible nesting point and then put measures in place to trap and, whenever possible, humanely remove these creatures. After ensuring all these unwanted animals are out of your home, we seal those points off one by one to prevent another infestation down the line.
Ridding your Alamo Heights property of a flea infestation can be a difficult and prolonged experience, depending on how long the issue has been left untreated. You, your pets and your family members can suffer from incessant itching and even secondary infections when fleas have become established. While fleas may not infest a home, they can carry Lyme Disease, which can have a life-altering impact on a victim. The professionals at ABC will evaluate the extent of your infestation and implement effective treatments for either type of pests in all life stages so you and your family don’t have to worry about any more pesky bites.
Spider & Scorpion Control
Spiders and scorpions can seem to appear out of nowhere when we’re least expecting them, including when we’re pulling a box of decorations out of the attic or grabbing an item out of the back of our closet. Although most varieties of spiders in Texas are essentially harmless, there are two venomous species that homeowners need to keep an eye out for: the brown recluse and the black widow. And while a scorpion's sting may not be as dangerous, many homeowners would prefer that these creatures stay in their natural habitats instead of in our garages, sheds and patios. If you are uncomfortable with the number of spiders or scorpions on your property, or if you are unsure of whether the spiders on your property are venomous, reach out to ABC. Our specialists can identify and treat for these pests, and then advise you on how to avoid unwanted encounters in the future.
Yes, we will come out to initially assess your property at no charge. In order to facilitate the creation of the absolute best treatment plan for you, we prefer to get a better understanding of your problem.
During this in-person meeting, you can expect your specialist to:
- Review the pest issues and activities you’ve noticed in and around your home
- Inspect your property to pinpoint pest activity areas and possible entry points
- Report back on any pest-related damage
- Determine if there are any factors that may make your home or yard particularly attractive to pests
- When needed, identify which species of pest is present
- Answer any questions you might have about the pests or our protocols
Upon completion of the inspection, your ABC professional will provide a tailored pest control management plan. After you approve the estimate, we can schedule your first service call.
ABC’s technicians have a deep understanding of pest behavior. Our success is rooted in proven processes developed from the tenets of Integrated Pest Management (IPM). IPM is an approach endorsed by numerous organizations, including the Environmental Protection Agency. Essentially, these principles prioritize low-impact, low-cost pest interventions.
We not only look at the pests you’re dealing with, but the environment they require to survive and thrive. We then work to determine why these pests have taken up residence on your property and then eliminate those creature comforts which are drawing them in to provide you with longer-term protection that minimizes the use of chemicals.
Most pests are seasonal, which is why ABC offers an ongoing treatment program. Our customers who sign up for these services receive routine treatments to control populations of the most common pests in the Alamo Heights area: roaches, spiders, scorpions and ants.
At ABC, we recognize the important benefits bees provide. If bees have built a hive in a location that poses a health risk to you, your family or visitors, we can provide you with contact information for local beekeepers who can relocate bees from your property humanely.
During our initial walkthrough, we prefer to hear directly from you about the challenges you’re facing and out anything that might otherwise be difficult to explain by phone. Depending on the pest issue you may have, we may recommend outside treatments, an application of products indoors or a combination of the two.
We also have outside-only pest control services, and many of our routinely scheduled ongoing treatments only require perimeter and outdoor treatment. In those cases, we simply ask that you provide any necessary instructions that our technicians might need to access your property.
Homeowners in Alamo Heights choose ABC for pest control time and time again for a number of reasons. First of all, we’re family-owned and family-run, and we promise to treat your property and belongings the very same way we would treat our own. We’ve been in the industry for more than 70 years, and this extensive knowledge informs our decisions about the best treatment options for our customers. We only send highly-trained, licensed professionals to evaluate and treat your home. Additionally, all of our technicians have passed a thorough background check and drug testing, so you can feel safe with us in your home.
