Mosquito Control in Waco, TX

Summer in Central Texas can sometimes have us feeling like we're surrounded by mosquitoes. While it can be extremely irritating to get multiple bites in just a few minutes outside, the real danger of mosquitoes is the diseases they can transmit, like Zika and West Nile virus. When it comes to mosquito control, Waco residents know they can count on ABC Home & Commercial Services to handle the problem and protect their loved ones.

Our trained, expert technicians routinely provide these proven techniques to help control mosquitoes:

Targeting Mosquito Breeding Areas 

Although you probably know to dump any standing water that can accumulate throughout your yard, you may not know just how little water a mosquito needs to lay eggs. Moisture that amounts to only a teaspoon can provide ample breeding ground for a single mosquito female to lay up to 300 eggs; and since mosquito eggs can hatch in just two days, that means it’s a full-time job to keep an eye on these problem areas.

Our highly skilled technicians know exactly where the moisture around your home can cause you problems, so we make recommendations to make your yard safer. We may tell you to place mosquito dunks in your birdbath, repair a leaking outdoor faucet or trim back vegetation to make your outdoor spaces less hospitable for egg-laying mosquitoes.

Applying Localized Treatments With Mobile Misting Backpacks 

While controlling mosquitoes from laying eggs on your property is important, you also want to target immature and adult mosquitoes who spend most of the day resting in your vegetation. ABC’s specialists can apply uniquely formulated mosquito control solutions directly in the most needed and hard to reach areas. Regular applications of this mosquito-repelling fog will significantly reduce your mosquito population in the short term.

Providing Effective, Long-Term Relief Through Misting Stations

Since mosquito treatments become less effective over time, it’s important to schedule additional applications to keep your yard’s mosquito population under control. ABC’s experienced technicians can install misting stations strategically around the perimeter of your home to deliver automated treatments at the times of day mosquitoes are most active. You can also manually activate these misters through a remote-controlled device.

We offer a full range of pest control services.

There are many reasons Waco customers come to ABC for mosquito control solutions. First of all, we have earned a reputation for our long-term results. Second, we require each employee to undergo extensive background checks and drug testing so that our customers can feel safe with our technicians on your property. Last, we take the time to treat your property as we would our own, leaving it in the same or better condition than when we found it.

Frequently Asked Questions

How soon can you get here and start working on my mosquito problem?

We do all that we can do get you on the schedule as soon as possible to begin to implement a plan of action. For some of our most popular services—mosquito, spider, scorpion and ant control—we can give you an estimate over the phone based on the size of the area you want to be treated. What we prefer and recommend, however, is to schedule a time to meet you at your home to do a full inspection, so we can determine the extent and severity of your problem. After that visit, we can present you with a plan of action that we can begin to implement upon your approval.

Can you give me a free estimate for mosquito control services?

Absolutely. While we prefer to visit you at your home to learn all that we can about your mosquito problem, we can also give you an estimate over the phone for treatment based on the area that you would like to have treated.

If you opt for an in-person appointment, a trained inspector will meet with you to:

  • Ask you questions to learn more about your mosquito problem

  • Conduct a preliminary survey to determine both the severity and the extent of your mosquito population

  • Look for areas where mosquitoes are breeding and resting on your property

  • Provide you with an opportunity to ask us any questions you might have about our services and what to expect as a customer

Once this visit is complete, we’ll send you a list of recommended next steps to approve. Once you have had a chance to review and approve our free, no-obligation estimate, we can schedule your first service appointment.

What’s the usual length of mosquito control treatments, and how frequently are your service calls?

Unfortunately, no two pest problems are exactly the same, so treatment will vary, based on your mosquito population and how it responds to treatment.

Since effectively treating for mosquitoes requires targeting these pests at various stages in their life cycle, treatment is generally not fully completed in one visit. Your customized treatment plan will give you a better idea of how many visits you’ll need to get your problem under control and when you should expect to get some relief.

Are your technicians able to come to provide mosquito treatment services while I’m not at my home?

We completely understand that it’s hard to take off work or be home every time a technician is scheduled to come to your home. That’s why we developed a convenient “outside only” pest control option to protect you from a number of outdoor pests. You won’t have to be home for a treatment to occur, and you can arrive back home to a treated yard, which means pests are less likely to find a way inside.

Will I still see mosquitoes after a service call?

We’d love to be able to tell you that mosquitoes will immediately be off your property, but it does take a small amount of time to see a big difference. After our treatments start to work, you’ll see a substantial drop-off in activity until your problem is eliminated.

How worried should I be about the impact of mosquito control products on my kids and pets?

The well-being of our customers is our top priority, so we carefully select effective products with low impact on your pets and kids. We take the time to make sure our technicians understand exactly how to apply these low-concentration, residentially designed products in the smallest possible amounts. We are always happy to talk to you further about any concerns you might have about the products we use for mosquito control on your property and address any concerns you might have.

“I was very impressed with the handyman services provided by ABC Home & Commercial Services. Mark was professional and treated my home like it was his own. He did a phenomenal job fixing the loose siding on the chimney and securing the cedar shutters on the front of our home. While working inside our home, he listened to my concerns and addressed the tasks with efficiency and informed me of the curing time needed for the caulk to properly dry. I would definitely contact ABC again for future needs and request the same technician again.”

“We had a problem with an AC unit not cooling. We couldn’t reach ABC over the weekend (turned out we were calling the wrong number. They have an after hours answering service) so we called a different company. They told us the compressor was tripping the breaker and needed to be replaced. We were quoted $3700 for a new compressor or $7800 for a whole new AC. We decided to hold off and get a second opinion from ABC because we’ve used them for various things for more than 30 years, and we trust them. Their AC tech came out and said he was pretty sure the problem was the breaker, not the AC, so we asked ABC to send out an electrician. The electrician pulled out the breaker and confirmed that was the problem. It took him less than 45 minutes, and that was with me watching and asking questions about it. He probably would have been able to do it faster without an audience. For both techs to come out, the total was about $160. With the other company, we would have paid at least $3700 just to find out it still didn’t fix the problem.”
