Pest Control in Athens, TX

While our warm, humid climate allows us to enjoy the outdoors most of the year, it also makes our area an ideal environment for roaches, mosquitoes, fleas, ticks and other unwanted bugs and critters. That's one reason pest control in Athens can become a challenging task for homeowners. If you’re ready for some professional help, know that you can rely on the family-run business that's known for getting results: ABC Home & Commercial Services.

Effective Pest Control Solutions

At ABC, our pest control process starts with a complimentary, non-obligatory inspection and estimate. Depending on your situation, we may even be able to provide you with a quote over the phone. If we recommend an in-person meeting to give you the most effective solution to your problem, you can expect your specialist to:

  • Ask you questions about where you’ve been seeing pests or noticing pest activity.
  • Identify the species of pest, if necessary
  • Report back on the extent and severity of the infestation
  • Examine your property for any pest-related damage
  • Take note of any structural issues or environmental factors that could make your home and yard more attractive to pests
  • Answer any of your questions regarding the pests or our treatment options

At the end of the inspection, we will provide you with a treatment plan that is tailored to your property. Upon your approval, we will schedule your first service call.

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.

ABC has been providing pest control to homeowners across Texas since 1949. You can feel confident knowing that we have the experience, skills and tools at our disposal to create the most effective treatment plan for you. Our deep understanding of how to effectively control unwanted bugs and critters led us to create our Signature Service, which can help keep pest populations on your property low throughout the year.

A Signature Service includes:

  • A thorough inspection of your property to ensure there are no signs of recent pest activity.
  • An application of targeted treatments and a refill of preventative treatments, as needed.
  • A dusting of preventative products on potential pest entry points along the perimeter of your home.
  • The addition of copper wool to seal off any potential pest entry points.
  • An assessment of your crawl spaces and attics to look for any new signs of pest activity and to apply additional treatments wherever necessary.

ABC has earned the QualityPro accreditation through the National Pest Management Association. As part of this holding this accreditation, ABC checks all employee driving records and requires candidates to pass drug tests and background checks before offering them a position. In addition, all of our specialists receive ongoing training so you can feel confident that any of our professionals working on your property are fully equipped to handle your pest issues.

Are the pest control methods your technicians use friendly for my pets and children?
