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.

“After noticing damage to a recently completed stone tree border in my yard I concluded it was most likely a lawn mower, as there was what appeared to be a tire mark near the damage. ABC does my lawn and when I brought it their attention they scheduled Joel to inspect the damage. Joel and I discussed the damage and we both agreed it was more than likely caused by a lawn mower. Joel assured me ABC would take responsibility for the damage. I contacted the contractor that installed the border to provide an estimate but they were slow to respond. ABC informed me they have craftsmen who could repair the border and I agreed to allow them to do the work. I wasn't home when they showed up to do the work but my wife was impressed when they showed up as scheduled, informed her why they were there and notified her when the job was done. They were very courteous. I inspected the work when I got home and was very impressed with the repair. ABC handled the situation from my notification to their repair in a professional manner. I was left thinking I hired the wrong company to do the initial border installation. ABC's quality of work exceeded that of the contractor and their professionalism was top-notch! I recommend ABC to anyone seeking work within the purview of their craftsmen.”
