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.

“We had the best experience from beginning to end with ABC. From making the appointment to the inspection to the actual service. Mario was very pleasant and professional. He let us know he was on the way and was prompt to arrive. He was thorough and explained everything he was doing and also provided pictures of issues encountered. His expertise was reassuring and I would most definitely use their services again. I would highly recommend them to everyone.”

“Brandon has been cleaning our windows and gutters now for several years. He is very detailed oriented and we know exactly what the work will entail before it is started. I always look forward to seeing him when he comes. He is very personable, kind and interested in his clients and their families. He is not just providing a service, but building relationships, both with his clients and team members. You can tell he genuinely enjoys what he does and you know that your requested work will be completed with utmost care. I thoroughly trust his judgement and recommendations. Sometimes the work we thought was needed wasn’t necessary, while other times he noted things that did need attention. Either way he always provided great advice.”
