"If ratings above *A* were available, I would give them to this company for every single aspect of my experience with them! From their immediate response to my email" service request, to their quick scheduling and perfect arrival time to their friendly, professional, effective service, they earned my highest confidence. My initial contact was via email because it was shortly after business hours, but I got a call back almost instantly! The service available was explained and scheduling was prompt. Technician Amber arrived precisely at the agreed-upon time, assessed the problem at my home, explained the process and products she would be using to remedy it, and offered suggestions for ways to discouraging bees from returning. Her work was quickly and neatly accomplished, and I have had no problems since. I am completely pleased with this company, their people, their responsiveness, professionalism, and service. I appreciate the quality of their work, their reasonable cost, their guarantee, and, of course, the fact the fact that they solved my problem!

You have a lot of questions. I will try to cover them all.

First, mice can fit through a hole the size of a dime.
Second, unlike rats, mice are very small; it would take a major infestation to generate a persistent odor as indicated.

Elimination starts by sealing the exterior foundation of the home, door sweeps, broken windows, cracks in the foundation, holes around electrical service, water faucets and dryer vents.

Secondly, food sources must be eliminated. Mice only need 1 gram of food a day and they extract water directly from the food they digest.

Next, mice infestations are more localized than people think, bait under the house might not have any effect. Heat sources like refrigerators and hot water heaters are suspect as a base of operation.

Snap traps are highly effective when used where dropping are found. Use a variety of bait, peanut butter (avoid this if children are present), brownie, fruit and even dental floss tied to the pedal (nesting material).

As for the odor, look for an enzyme based cleaner / deodorizer.

 

If the problem continues seek the help of a Pest Control Professional with rodent experience.
 

Hope that helps,

Andrew Deluca

The quickest way I've found to get rid of them (as opposed to preventing them - see answer above) is to put a half cup of cider vinegar (must be cider vinegar) in a jar or bowl and put a half-dozen drops of dishwashing liquid on top of it.  Leave out on a counter wherever the problem exists. Empty and refill as needed.

Legally, it needs to be pest control - wildly boring technical explanation regarding Federal pesticide laws that I won't bother you with.  Having said that, depending on where they are located in your chimnet, you could do it yourselt.  Most wasp control products will shoot 12'-20'.  So, if they are in a lower section of your chimney you wait until dark (they return to their nests before dark) and reach up above your damper and spray the nests.  If you're not averse to being on your roof, do the same thing from the top.  Otherwise, hire a professional.

An exterminator - you have to careful that the pests are driven out of the attic BEFORE the entrance they were using is closed up, otherwise you have dead decaying animals in your attic - can cause a stench that lasts for weeks.

We had problems with ants and spiders and their spraying covers up to 4,000 square feet.
They sprayed the exterior and interior of the townhouse. Three months later, I have not had any issues.

Fabulous. Vacuumed first which none of the others I've used do. Spent a lot of time on the steps and they look better than they have in years. The representative was courteous, professional and knew what he was doing. I love the work they did and am recommending them to neighbors!

I sent an email to them at 4:30 in the afternoon. They responded immediately asking for more information and setting a tentative appointment for the next morning. I was emailed a list of things to do to prepare my house before their arrival. and CiCi showed up right on time. ...More performed a quick walk-through of our house, then CiCi through. She presented a report of her findings at the end. The whole experience was great, from their quick response to having the work performed. They also have a discounted inspection rate for post-treatment. I couldn't be more pleased (except for confirming that I have bedbugs, but that's not their fault).

Amber came out to look the house over and the yard to see if there was any possible way for the skunk to come in or near my home. At the time she came, we no longer had a skunk smell. She asked me many questions and also gave me a lot of information on skunks. I decided to not set the traps and she did not charge me for her services ...More but offered to come back at any time to set traps if the skunk smell came back. She also gave me some great advise on how to fix my chimney which will end up saving me lots of money. She was wonderful. I found Amber to be extremely professional, smart and a pleasure to work with.

I first contacted this provider in June to remove bees' nests from underneath my deck railings. removed 8 nests and explained thoroughly what he was doing. In October, when having my furnace maintenance completed, the technician removed a pipe to clean a sensor and found a nest with active bees. He quickly replaced the ...More pipe because he is allergic to bee stings. I contacted , and they arranged to be here the following day to remove bees and nest. The owner, , provided the service in October. The staff in the office are very professional and pleasant. and are very thorough and professional. I have elected to drop my current pest control company and engage this company because of their professionalism, promptness, and how they worked together with my heating and cooling company to resolve the problem with the bees.

We had an extremely tough yellow jacket nest. Because honors their guarantee they returned three time (in good humor) to completely eradicate the yellow jackets using different treatments both inside and outside of the house. We were extremely pleased and now will never use anyone else for pest control.

I bought a big deal for a house with linear feet less than 220 at $899. They had me pay $500 extra since they said their deal was too good. I had to pay someone else to pick up the pavers along the front of the house, since they said this was not part of their job. It was, and the job was now 3/4 done. They came back on another day to finish the ...More job. Very disappointed in their work.
