"This was incredibly disappointing given all the good reviews they have and I can only conclude that they do a better job of bed bugs than they do of mice. The technician" turned up on time and was very nice. However, he made no real attempt to identify the source or sources of the problem - which we understood would be part of the service - and commented that as we had already placed traps in many places, there was nothing further he could do. He didn't charge us, which was decent, but what a waste of time. He wasn't in the house for long, and had pretty standard-style traps: exactly the kind you can buy off the shelf. So much for all the sweet talk I was given over the phone. Do not plan on calling again.

"i wasn't all to happy with my experience and or the service. its took them two weeks to schedule the treatment and then when they came they told me that i had" only paid for the exterior treatment, so i had to fork over another 40 dollars, 20.00 of it that i learned was from coming into Philadelphia! Within two weeks of the treatment, I still had various types of bugs and spiders crawling around my home. Sorry, but i won't be using them again.

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.

came back as a repeat visit, although billed as a separate visit given the almost one year interval, for a recurring mouse problem. He charged us the full price, rather than a return visit price, which included follow up for up to 60 days. He came out and laid a few traps but did not seal any of the openings. When we called for a return visit at about 6 weeks, he answered his phone but said he was coming back from vacation and can he get back to me. I said, sure, no problem, and sent him a text message for available times to come the following week. He never followed up, and 5 unreturned phone calls later, we are finished with

$142 every three months for extermination and removing rodents, they also offer veteran's discounts. They sprayed and put down mesh over openings to make sure the rats couldn't get in through the visible openings. They also took care of my water bugs, and I like that you can call them to come out as many times as you need for no additional charge.

It was a free inspection, then they said it would cost me $615 a year if I wanted them to take care of the rats. They were nice, and did a good through inspection, but I found someone else who offered a cheaper contract.

was excellent. He called the day before to confirm the appointment and showed up exactly on time-- 8 am on a Saturday. He sprayed every possible place in my house that cockroaches might be living and left poison in the basement for them to take back to their nest. He set glue traps to get a better sense of where the bugs might be. He also explained everything he was doing to me, was careful not to get the insecticide on anything other than what it was supposed to go on, and asked a lot of questions about our household (kids, pets, etc.) to make sure what he was doing was totally safe. I cannot recommend him highly enough!

I previous used a bedbug exterminator who charged me 400.00 for one of three treatments. They came into my house and said that they would use a heat treatment along with a bomb and told us we had to leave the house. We knew that we had a problem in one bedroom but he tried to show me bedbugs in all three bedrooms, but I couldn't see what he was trying to show me. Anyway, he told us that he was going to use the heat treatment and the bomb and that it would take three hour for the bomb to go away. We left the house and less than three hours later he called a said that we could come back. We are still trying to figure out how he heat treated and bombed three bedrooms in less than three hours. We wouldn't allow them to come back for additional treatments. Needless to say, we still had bedbugs, now worse than ever. (This provider is not on Angie's list). I went Angie's List and found Citywide Exterminator and problem solved! Mr.
Philadelphia Exterminators Provider Name Locked
took the time to fully explain his treatment and also explained why heat treatments and bombs don't work. He also explained why his treatment only require one visit. He questioned me extensively about our infestation and assured us that the bugs were most likely confined to the one bedroom. I did a lot research concerning the prices for different extermination company and the prices range from 1000.00 to 3000.00 dollars. Citywide charge me 300.00 for the one visit, and assured me that there was no need for three treatments. After Mr.
Philadelphia Exterminators Provider Name Locked
completed the treatment he sat down with us and showed us different research papers from different university studies explaining why his treatment is successful. We didn't just purchase eradication we purchase peace of mind, and anyone who has or had begbugs will know what I'm talking about. Lastly, Mr.
Philadelphia Exterminators Provider Name Locked
is an honest and fair provider. He could have easily gotten more money from us for addional treatments or charge us more for the one. For the life of me I don't know why he was rated a B for price. Bottom line is, we fell in love with house again.
