A specialist will come to your home and inspect the property for fire ants or other ant mounds. If we find fire ants, we will recommend the best treatment for your property and the environment. In most cases, we put bait in and around the mound.

San Antonio has been in a drought for seven years. During periods of drought, fire ants tend to burrow further down, closer to the water table. You may see ants without mounds, but this does not mean there are not large ant colonies on your property—it may mean that the colonies are deep beneath the surface. In such a case, the specialist will place bait around the entire area. Worker ants then come to the surface and carry the bait back to the colony underground, resulting in their elimination.

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.

3. 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.

4. Prevention

Customers with our ongoing pest management services will receive periodic retreatments to prevent the return of the most common pests in our area.

When a mound is disturbed, ants swarm to the surface and sting anything in their path. Because they swarm and sting so fast, pets and children must be kept away from the mound.

Fire ants build huge underground networks and are often harder to treat than ordinary ants. This means that even if a mound is destroyed, there is probably still a colony of fire ants living underground. ABC has treatment options designed specifically to treat for fire ants so you can enjoy your yard, worry-free.

“I am very satisfied with the service provided. The worker texted to let me know they would arrive in 30 minutes. They arrived on time. The uniforms made it easy to identify them as representatives of ABC. Both workers were polite and friendly. They did an excellent job cutting back my 30 foot red tips. All limbs and debris was removed and cleaned up. They took much care to protect the solar panels on top of the house. I would highly recommend them to friends and neighbors. Thank you Jake for assessing the need and providing the quote. Thank you Mark and Leo for your work!”
