Our experienced professionals have in-depth knowledge of pest habits and behavior and follow the principles of Integrated Pest Management (IPM). IPM is an approach that has been endorsed by many reputable organizations, including the EPA. IPM is a tactic that focuses on making minor modifications to your environment to make it less appealing to pests, and then turning to chemical interventions when necessary.
When you contact us for pest control services, our experts assess not just the pests you’re dealing with, but their surroundings as well. We work to determine why these bugs and critters are on your property and how we can make easy changes to make the environment less attractive to pests. We typically recommend changes such as moving firewood away from the exterior of your home or changing your watering schedule to limit excess moisture around your property.
We will visit your property in-person for an initial assessment at no charge. In order to make the most effective treatment plan for your property, we often prefer to get a clear understanding of your pest problem in person.
During this inspection, you can expect your ABC technician to:
- Discuss your pest problem with you and ask about what you’ve been noticing in and around your home
- Conduct an initial inspection to locate areas of pest activity and possible pest entry points
- Assess your property for any pest-related damage
- Determine if there are any environmental factors or structural issues that make your property more susceptible to a pest infestation
- If needed, identify the species of pest
- Give you an opportunity to ask any questions you may have about the pests or our protocols
Upon completion of our inspection, your ABC specialist will provide you with a customized pest control management plan. When we receive your approval of our estimate, we will schedule your first service call.
We have been providing pest control in Canyon Lake and throughout the San Antonio area since 1949. After decades of experience in the area, we know the best ways to control pests. Our specialists go through extensive training programs before they perform service calls. They are also drug tested and background checked before receiving a job offer. Finally, as a family-run business, one of our core values is that we treat our customers’ homes as if they were our own.

How quickly can you come to my home?
We understand that when you have a pest problem, you want a professional at your home quickly. Once you contact us, we will send a technician to your property for an inspection as soon as possible. In some cases, we can even offer you a complimentary estimate over the phone.
Because of the wide variety of factors that can cause a pest problem, an in-person visit is often recommended so our specialists can get first-hand information we need to create an effective treatment plan. Once you contact us, we will put an inspection on our calendar for an assessment. At the end of this assessment, your technician will provide you with a customized treatment plan. When you approve our estimate, we will get your first treatment call on the schedule.
Can you protect my home year-round?
Since the weather in Canyon Lake is warm nearly all year, many homeowners struggle with pests most months of the year. To combat this, we offer an ongoing treatment program. Our customers who sign up for this program benefit from regularly scheduled treatments to control populations of the most common pests in the area: roaches, spiders, scorpions and ants.
What can ABC do about honey bees?
ABC understands the important role of honey bees in our ecosystem. If we determine you have a problem with bees on your property, we can provide you with the contact information for a local beekeeper who can assist with removing these stinging insects.
Do I need to be present for you to perform the necessary treatment?
