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.

“Ricardo Rios came and serviced my house and my sister’s house. He did a thorough job and he also gave me glue traps for out garages. Amazing how many lizards get in under the door! ABC is polite, friendly, they mask and they make sure the gate is closed. I never see any bugs! Very personable too. Ricardo has good suggestions and he is knowledgeable about all the little pests!”
