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.
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.
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.
How quickly can you come to my home?
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.

Can you protect my home year-round?
What can ABC do about honey bees?
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.
Do I need to be present for you to perform the necessary treatment?
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.
