I want to complement all of the field staff, pest control, HVAC, and rodent, in particular Thomas Trotter & Chris Gentry. The quality of the people ABC hires is impeccable and I am very grateful for the quality service they provide.
We understand that once you see a mice or rat, you want to take care of the problem as quickly as possible. That’s why once you call us at (210) 599-9500, we’ll get you on the schedule at the first available opportunity so that an inspector to come to your property to determine the best next steps.
ABC’s rodent and wildlife control program begins with a free inspection.
At that time, our inspector will:
Ask you questions to learn more about the extent of your problem
Take a closer look at possible entry points
Make recommendations on how to best manage your pest problem
Answer any questions you might have
After that meeting, ABC will deliver a FREE, no-obligation estimate. After you approve the estimate, we will work with you to find a time for the work to begin.
Our technicians are trained to look for two things: places that these larger pests can enter your property and possible food and water sources. Once the animal is identified, right-sized traps are laid and checked regularly so that these pests can be removed and relocated humanely.
ABC’s next job is to make sure these critters don’t come back. That means taking steps to address the availability of food and water and sealing all possible entry points. Our technicians will install sheet metal, wire mesh, copper wool and concrete materials covers over any openings near your home’s exterior to prevent rodents and other small creatures from getting inside.
Rodents are experts at squeezing into small spaces. These larger pests can make a home inside of your walls, in your attic, near your roofline and in other out of the way places that are difficult to access.
A rodent problem can turn into an infestation quickly. Often the only signs rats or mice are living in your home is if you hear scratching noises or see droppings or gnaw marks in and around your home.
San Antonio homeowners know they can call on ABC’s technicians to remove all types of wildlife, including squirrels, raccoons and opossums. ABC uses an integrated pest management philosophy and an extensive understanding of animal behavior to inform recommendations for the most effective long-term prevention of damage from these larger pests.
Rodents are highly adapted to live among humans. We provide rats and mice with all that they need to survive: food, water and shelter. Rats can tread water for days, survive a fall from a five-story building and live through the experience of being flushed down the toilet. The house mouse is one of the most common mammals on earth, as well as one of the most prolific, and can jump a foot high.
Keeping rodents away requires a comprehensive approach. Most homeowners take some steps to keep rodents away, but are unable or unwilling to regularly access the many areas where rodents could be nesting, including along the roof or attic to check for signs of these pests.
Ways to make your property less attractive to these creatures include:
Keeping human and pet food in tightly-sealed containers that are indoors instead of in your garage or yard.
Cleaning up any spills or discarded food from your dining and kitchen areas promptly.
Identifying and sealing holes in your home’s exterior and along windows, doors and attics that could provide a way for rodents to find their way inside.
Removing potential nesting sites in your yard by avoiding overgrowth and removing woodpiles and other debris.
In addition to hiring highly-trained and experienced pest control professionals, ABC conducts regular background checks and drug testing on all its employees. Our customers can feel confident that the technicians at their home are treating their property as they would their own.
