Termite Control in Waco, TX

Termites cost homeowners in the U.S. billions of dollars in damage each year. We usually don't discover these destructive pests until a colony is well established. If you see signs of termite activity, contact ABC Home & Commercial Services in Waco. Our pros can pinpoint the source of your termite problem and use proven solutions to keep your biggest investment protected.

We recognize that every termite infestation is slightly different, and we tailor the details of our treatment to fit each individual home. We always follow a structured approach to stopping termites that has proven highly effective over time.

subterranean termites tunneling through soil We start by identifying the type of termite responsible for the damage. Then, we look for all the points where termites are attacking the home. For example, we will look for mud tubes coming up from the ground, dead termites around windows or live ones in areas where wood appears to be rotting. Next, we will recommend treatment specifically designed for the type of termite attacking the structure.

In the case of Subterranean termites, we normally apply a liquid treatment everywhere that we find the termites or where we find conditions conducive for termites to flourish. In the case of Drywood termites, we’ll likely recommend fumigation as the best way to eradicate the problem. However, every case is evaluated upon its own unique needs, and homeowners help decide the best solution for their home.

Post-treatment, we perform regular inspections of the treated structure to confirm that the termite problem stays under control.

Frequently Asked Questions

What causes termite infestations, and how do termites damage homes?

Any pest in your home is a problem, but termites are more than just a nuisance. Termites actually eat the wood that frames your home, potentially reducing your home’s structural integrity. In fact, termites will consume almost any kind of cellulose. Wood, paper, burlap, cotton and cardboard are all likely to be in and around your house and are all food for termites.

Since most termites require sources of water, a leaky spigot or garden hose, water that collects around your air conditioning condenser or even leaky plumbing can get their attention and further grow an infestation. Unfortunately, termites can and often do infest any home, regardless of preventive measures a homeowner takes.

Termites cause billions of dollars in damage every year, and while damage may take some time to occur,  they absolutely must be taken care of by a pest care professional.

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

Tent fumigation, or “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 done 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, visit:

“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.”
