"In September 2014 I requested an estimate for the termite, general pest, and mosquito services. The salesman who came to my home was pleasant and informative and" answered my questions. Their termite service is quite involved and seemed thorough but I stated I was protected until sometime in early spring but I wasn't sure of the exact date. The salesman said it would be no problem to sign a contract now and let the person scheduling the service know as soon as I looked up the date from my old company when to begin that service. He put October as a start date but I stated I didn't want service then and he said just to let them know when they called, it was no problem. I began general pest service and was pleased with the thorough manner my home was looked at and treated and the technician was knowledge and pleasant. Around the end of Sept or 1st part of October I was called and let the termite schedulerer know what I had told the salesman regarding the early spring and to call me in January about an exact date. She told me that they had to do the service a month after the contract was signed which was not what the salesman told me. The next thing I knew, in November, I was being contacted by a Collections manger that I was in breech of contract for not having my termite service done in October. I explained to her what I had explained to the person who previously called and she would not hear anything I had to say, only I was in Breech of Contract for not having the service in October. The harassment continued through December and January so that I finally let my technician know I liked him and his services but didn't want to work with a company whose office staff was so offensive and combative and untrustworthy. I sincerely desired their services based on the reviews on Angie's List and am sure they do a good pest control job and had no complaints about the technician doing my general pest and mosquito work. But I found their office staff unprofessional and unpleasant and unbending. I discovered the reason I was encouraged to sign the termite contract even though I didn't need it yet was because they aren't allowed to come back and have me sign another contract at a later date. When discussing the issue with the head of the company I was called combative and basically called a liar without using those words when I kept repeating I wanted the service and I never indicated I didn't but was misinformed by the salesman in regards to how the termite service could be scheduled. I was treated unprofessionally and in a threatening manner from the moment I began explaining to the office staff what I was told by the salesman as to the date the termite service was to begin. The head of the company was insulting and offensive and apparently doesn't appreciate women who are bold enough to attempt to provide a picture of the circumstance that differs from what he understands as he let me know I reminded him of his ex-wife which was incredibly unprofessional. No matter how good their product was and how knowledgable and pleasant their technician that came to my home for 6 months was, the manner with which you are treated by the office and the apparent poor communication skills they have with their customers in the office, I would not recommend this company.

"They were wonderful and good. They put new vents in the house. They did it on terms because we could not pay all at once. They sprayed for roaches and our house" was infected with them and they cleared them up. It was successful and it worked for us. They put traps for rats and puts stuff to prevent termites. They are really on top of their game. They would call one day ahead to make sure the date was ok. If I call them and tell them I saw something they would make it their business to solve my problem. If they say they are going to be here at 11 they were here.

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.

I purchased this deal because the previous winter I had a raccoon take up residence in my house and deliver her babies in my crawl space. I also heard movement in the attic during the winter (raccoon? rats?) and I wanted to prevent it from happening again. The deal was $139 to have the house checked and to repair minor entry points. Mr. ...More was professional and punctual. He checked my house for possible entry points for rodents but was unable to find any big enough for a raccoon to fit through. He did find one small place over the storage room and several damaged shingles on the roof. However, any work or repairs to the roof was not covered by the deal. So, for an additional $270 he applied new shingles to the few areas he found. A month later the roof rats moved in. In hindsight, I don't really feel I got my money's worth.

The provider called me as soon as I purchsed the deal so no complaints related to his responsiveness, however, he did have problems making his scheduled appointment. He called but since I work from home I was on a call and we had to do a bit of phone tag before we were able to make contact. Once he arrived I showed him areas where I felt I was having ...More issues with rodent control. He did look at these areas and then patched the places that I showed him. He did not do an inspection of the attic area and although he looked in the basement he did not really do anything there (although I have had issues with pests in the basement and I explained that). Basically for the price he really didn't do very much--I thought it would be a much more extensive package. I would not use the services again.

We were in the process of buying a house and needed a termite inspection. The house had an existing termite contract with so we decided to contact them for the inspection. They were very cordial and were able to arrange the inspection at the particular day and time we were hoping for. We were able to pay by credit card via telephone. ...More The inspection report was emailed to me the same day as the inspection. As a result we have decided to continue with the houses existing termite contract.

I was very disappointed with the work provided by 's men. I had come out to our house 2 times to clarify expectations and verify that everything was in writing. I typically hire individual tradesmen to do projects, but since I am a mom of a toddler, I did not have the time to do the subcontracting ...More myself. So, I interviewed and eventually hired as our contractor to manage the projects. I had anticipated a skilled group of men who could speak English. The men may have been experienced, but they were certainly NOT skilled workers. The light switch covers were not removed prior to painting and one of the painters actually painted our vents shut, to list just a few of the issues. had to come back and force the vents open. There was paint all over my bathroom floor, tub and wall tiles that was never cleaned up and also on our newly refinished wood floors. Only one spoke English, and not very well. When I gave directions, he said he understood and then did the opposite.
I had a crawling toddler and had to be out of the house all day because did not follow my request to work on one level of the home at a time. It was supposed to be a 3 day project, but he tried to rush it to be completed in one day. My husband was out of the country and this put a HUGE on me!! The absolute most aggravating part was that the men did not clean up at all! It was horrendous. I even walked in to see that one of the painters had put his paint roller on my wedding quilt! Who does that!?!? When I told , he said this was just part of having work done on your house. I knew this was not true, as my dad is a contractor and his policy to always leave the house better than when you arrived. I could not wait to get them out of my house.
I have since found a great painter who does just that and his rates are far more reasonable. He also speaks English and I would trust him with my son!
I have an old house that needed a lot of work. I'm glad I tested first with small projects and did not give us our high dollar projects! When work is done on someone's house, it should increase the value of the home. The quality provided was shoddy at best. I spent days cleaning up their mess and repainting their mistakes.

The very polite technician treated our house for insects. I did not have any problem area. If I have seen insects, she takes care of it. If we have any insect problems after the house has been treated, they take care of it. They are always punctual and polite.

Did not show up for the appointment. I waited and then called. They said they would be there an hour later and still did not come on the day scheduled. Showed Up the next day when I was put off town. Left a note on my door. Called the next business day trying to reschedule. I was very disappointed.
