Termite Control in San Antonio, TX

Termites are double trouble. Not only are they almost impossible to detect, because they arrive on your property via underground tunnels, but also they pose the most costly threat to your home when compared to any other pest. When choosing a company for termite control, San Antonio homeowners choose the independently-owned and operated business that has been providing reliable, effective solutions for decades: ABC Home & Commercial Services.

Our work begins with your free, no-obligation inspection.

After we confirm the presence of termites and inspect your property for damage, we’ll recommend one of the following techniques to get rid of these dangerous pests:


Termidor is an extremely effective treatment that is specially designed to target subterranean termites, drywood termites and dampwood termites, which are the types which inflict the most damage on homes. By trenching, our specialists will create a liquid barrier between the walls of your foundation and the most common ways these pests attack our homes—through our yards. Termidor is proven to eliminate termites within three months of application to residential and commercial structures as termites bring this termiticide back to the nest, causing 100% of the colony to die. Although this method is found to be effective for over 15 years, follow-up inspections will ensure your treatment zone is intact.


To eradicate certain types of termites, your only option may be tenting, otherwise known as fumigation. This method involves totally covering your entire structure with heavy tarps and then introducing a gas for several hours, and in some cases, overnight. No residue nor odors will remain after the treatment. Fumigation kills all types of insects within the sealed area, including termites.


If you are building a new residence, your best protection against termites is Termimesh, an environmentally-friendly barrier which is made from stainless steel mesh. Termites are unable to eat through this material, nor can they squeeze through the holes. Termimesh is 100% effective at preventing termite infestations as long as you are in your home.

Frequently Asked Questions

What can you tell me about how kid and pet-friendly your treatments are?

We select our projects with the utmost concern for the well-being of your family (including your furbabies). We seek a balance so that treatments are as low-impact as possible while being effective. Our technicians are happy to address any concerns you might have about the products we are using in and around your home.

What are some things I can do on my own to protect my property from termite damage?

Since termites reach your home’s foundation through underground tunnels, often going undetected until damage is quite extensive, the best tactic when it comes to termites is prevention.

Here are a few ways you can help make your home less vulnerable to an infestation:

  • Remove any firewood, leaf litter, lumber and other wood so that these materials which can attract termites to your property aren’t present. If you do need to have some wood around your property, store it as far away from your home as possible, and try to elevate these materials so they are harder to access by these pesky pests.
  • Identify and seal any holes or cracks in your home’s foundation.
  • Prevent the accumulation of standing water and fix leaking outdoor faucets, since these can both help a termite colony survive.
  • Conduct annual termite inspections yourself along the exterior of your home. Look for warning signs you have termites, including mud tubes, piles of termite wings around windows and paint or drywall that is bubbling or brittle. Also look for damaged wood. You can test the strength by tapping a flat-headed screwdriver along any wood that sounds suspicious. Hollow noises are a sign that there is damage underneath. Pay particular attention to crawl spaces, decks and porches, window frames, steps, expansion joints in bricks or concrete and tree stumps.
  • If you are building a home, you can completely protect your structure from damage by using the Termimesh system around pipes and service wiring to block termite invasions.

Can you perform inspections for Wood Destroying Insects (WDIs)?

ABC’s technicians have the training and experience to conduct a thorough investigation of your property for wood destroying insects. We can also provide you with documentation that this work has been completed.

What is the normal duration for termite treatments?

Every termite problem is slightly different, so we can’t provide you with an accurate estimate of how long your treatments will last until we visit your home to do our inspection. After that time, you will have a better idea of what will be involved to get your property termite-free.

What should I do if I see a termite during the course of my treatments?

Although we wish we could tell you that you will never see a pest during the course of treatment, the truth is that it’s not unusual for our customers to see a temporary spike in activity, especially during the initial phases of treatment, as these creatures are driven out of normal hiding spots.

Over time, pest activity will decrease until all the colony members are eliminated.

What is tent fumigation service, and when is it needed for termite treatment?

Tent fumigation (commonly referred to as “tenting”) is a highly effective solution for eliminating severe termite infestations. Preparation for fumigation can be extensive, requires thoughtful coordination, and follows strict safety procedures. Tenting a home for termites should always be handled by a professional with proper certifications and licensing in order to be performed safely and effectively.

What rules does ABC follow with regards to safety when using fumigant gas for termite treatment?

Safety is our number one priority when treating your home. We adhere to strict guidelines set forth by the fumigant manufacturer as well as state and federal regulatory agencies. During all structural fumigations, ABC regularly monitors the fumigant levels within the structure and the air outside the structure for efficacy. We use specially designed equipment capable of detecting fumigant levels as low as 1 part per million (ppm). We employ aeration times far exceeding what is required by law and confirm 0 ppm clearance levels multiple times before allowing you and your family to return to your home. Additionally, we follow all manufacturer recommendations, including not fumigating homes with attics enclosed in polyurethane spray foam insulation (PSFI).

We care about our customers and want them to be informed about products and safe handling practices. For more information about gas treatment and safety measures, please feel free to visit:
