"Great. The owner,

"They said the treatment would take care of the termite and carpenter ant problem that we were having. I still have both, so the treatment did not work. They were" hours late showing up for the appointment. I have tried on several occasions to call this company only getting through to a person once. I was assured that someone would be calling me back and no one ever did.

Pest Control/Exterminating

The quickest and most effective method of pest control? It's not at the hardware store. How much does it cost to hire an exterminator to eliminate pests?

Angie's Answers

?

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.

They contacted me immediately and an appointment was set up. They were respectful and very kind. He put out bait and traps and I am no longer hearing the sounds of these little critters. I am very pleased with this service. I would highly recommend this company and use them again. They told me that as long as the bait is disappearing they will continue to come back.

Initial appointment:
Columbus Exterminators Provider Name Locked
came right on time and was a pleasure all the way through. My problem was that the mice seemed to be only in the walls and insulation space in the roof of my Cape Cod house. I knew I could set mice traps for an ordinary mice invasion. I didn't know how to handle this. I would hear them at night, but not see them.
Columbus Exterminators Provider Name Locked
examined the whole house and assessed the situation. He was very knowledgable about the habits of mice and shared that with me. He showed me that they were going into the basement also. He immediately set traps. He described a couple of approaches that might be used based on the additional information we would gain from the traps.
Treatment: He came back in one week to assess the number and age of those caught. Based on that we chose a
Columbus Exterminators Provider Name Locked
approach (and a less expensive one) of bait boxes around the outside of the house and a few in the garage.
Result: No more mice! No evidence of mice! No sounds of mice! They seemed to have left that very day - like the word got out and they all moved.

The owners name is
Columbus Exterminators Provider Name Locked
and he has been great. It was a great price; he was doing a deal. He talked even about maybe doing it again because he had such a good feedback on it. He sprays even if we are not here. He will always try to call ahead. We have never had a whole lot of pest issues before but we certainly haven’t had any issues since we started with him. We paid him upfront for the year. What stands out about
Columbus Exterminators Provider Name Locked
is that he is just so friendly and very knowledgeable. When somebody comes out they always make sure that if there are any issues, they are addressed. He has said before if we have any issues, after they have been out, always call and let him know and they would come back.

Mr.
Columbus Exterminators Provider Name Locked
looked around in our bedrooms upstairs where the Yellow Jackets had been coming in for the previous three weeks. He walked around the outside of our brick-sided house, which is about 80 years old. After awhile he spotted a Yellow Jacket and followed it to a hole in the brick mortar about fourteen feet up. He put up a ladder, pumped insecticide into the hole and then caulked it shut. After a couple of minutes there were 40 bees flying around outside the hole, circling like planes in a landing pattern!
Then he went inside and caulked between the baseboards and the carpet (where they had been coming in). There were bees trapped inside the walls that were not killed immediately by the insecticide. It took two weeks before the last one appeared.
Neighborhood kids came over to watch Mr.
Columbus Exterminators Provider Name Locked
working. He told them all about bees. He is also a honey-bee keeper.
A very satisfactory outcome. don't hesitate to call him! You probably won't get rid of bees with RAID!!

The service provider was very thorough. Sprayed the area where we had seen the carpenter ants & then sprayed around the rest of the house. Provider was very knowledgeable & courteous.

I had stink bugs coming in the house. After he sprayed, I had none and have been bug free since. We also signed a contract for quarterly visits. Very happy with the responsiveness and service.

We purchased a vacant investment property that ended up having bed bugs. We were horrified and called

showed up early, was very thorough, very friendly, and very professional. His dog sniffed out the "hot spots" for the bugs, and we started a treatment plan with very powerful chemicals that will eradicate the issue.
They do an inspection with a dog, then dust and spray in the initial treatment. The second treatment consists of placing a residual compound down to
