We will send a licensed Inspector to your home and they'll perform a free inspection to determine your pest control needs. The inspector will discuss pest treatment options, answer all questions you may have and provide you with a written quote for services.
At ABC, we take an IPM (integrated pest management) approach to pest treatment, and the products we use are chosen according to that low-impact thought process.
IPM is a practice which says that treating a home for pests means looking at the home holistically. It means that suggestions about sanitation in the home or how & where you store pet food may be increasing the likelihood of drawing in pests. In other words, before we treat the home with pest control products, there may also be some common sense suggestions we can make and that will greatly reduce the number of crawling pests in the home.
Now, that doesn't mean we don't use very effective, very high-quality products, it just means we use all the tools at our disposal to solve your pest problems.
In general, most pest control visits are every other month. Depending on your particular preferences and the type of pests you may have, that schedule is customizable.
At ABC, our pest control specialists have experience treating a variety of pests, including San Antonio’s most notorious pests. We’ll inspect your home at your convenience and provide you with a personalized treatment plan to take care of your pest issue. If you have a pest problem, we have a solution.

Wasps, bees, and other flying insects can be serious concerns for homeowners.

Whether they live indoors or outside on your property, if you have an ant problem, you’ll want some help!

Most of the time, yes. However, unlike in the past, quality pest control companies focus on creating and maintaining a good barrier around the perimeter of your home on the outside. For most of our visits, you don't need to be home to "let the bug guy in." However, we're always glad to treat the inside of your home if you request it in advance and there's no extra charge for that.
It's not abnormal or uncommon for pests to move about right after one of our visits. Some of the products we use are baits that may encourage their movement to the bait - briefly. However, anytime you feel like we need to return in between visits to check our work and re-apply products, we're glad to come back free of charge.
