"He arrived on time and we walked around the exterior of the house, looking at each crawl space vent. We noted two in need of repair. He then went into the crawl" space and noted the conditions and taking pictures. He found no animals but made suggestions and estimates on cleaning and installing new vapor . My primary concern about animals living in the crawl space was addressed much to my relief--none there now. I decided to hold off on cleaning and installing new vapor .

"A few years ago I moved into a house and immediately had an ant Problem. My wife found control on Angiies List. They were punctual and professional." We signed up for a year of treatment. Three months after the intial treatment the ants came back. I used Controls treatment services for almost 3 years. Over the years their people remained professional and punctual however the problem never went away. Every 2-3 months the ants would come back through the same windowns and I would be told the same things. I feel I was incredibly patient. I was often handed ant bait traps that would temporarily eliminate the problem for a few months. I would call them during those times and a professional would come by and treat the area where the ants were entering. Almost 15 months ago my wife delivered our only child. Now the ants were entering her window. The final two times I called Control I was told a professional would not be able to come for 4 or 5 days. That is simply unacceptable given I was paying for a service. $1000+should eliminate the problem...not create a vicious cycle. I lived in Texas and North where ant problems are much worse and the problem never persisted more than 3 treatments. I understand that from State to State chemicals can differ yet I belive had I not ended service I would have been paying for the next 20 years while the problem never went away.

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.

Based on the great reviews, i called them for treating spiders. They called me to schedule an appointment quickly. The technician arrived on time. He started spraying both inside and outside the home and answered my questions. He explained about their annual package but did not push me to buy it which is nice.

was terrific! He was thorough, professional and offered an ample amount of time and explanation to my many questions. He determined that they were mice vs. rats and was a pleasure to work with. We are considering another deal for general pest control. Thank you so much!!!

The folks at and Pest Control were great. First of all, they returned my call. That may sound like a small thing...but we are currently in the "busy season" for animal invasions. And most of the companies I contacted through Angie's List did not respond. So points for that.
We made ...More an appointment for an inspection. showed up on time, confirmed that we had a squirrel problem and took immediate measures. He gave us a cost estimate, and then cleaned out the nest. He sealed off all entry points but one. That one entry point was left open, but also contained a trap.
We never did catch a squirrel...which is fine by us.
After a two week waiting period, and returned to seal up the last hole.
It's great having peace of mind and knowing that the house is squirrel-free!

I wanted to get the musty smell out of my basement, so recommended three approaches. Both subcontractors were punctual and professional. It appears the air ducts are very clean, and the carpets were shampooed well. However, the air fumigation service that he did only helped somewhat. I guess I expected a complete solution for two grand.

was very thorough, his treatment literally lasted seven months, from the spring until the fall.
He would return for repeat treatments as needed and he and his co-workers would spray their treatment all around our house.
They came back several times and would not finish the project if there was any ant activity on our property.

The technician came in and didn't just "glance" and go. Instead, he looked in nooks, crannies, asked a lot of questions about where, how many, how often, how long, etc. and really "investigated." He explained his method of control but told me what to watch for and didn't promise the moon, made sure ...More I was involved in the follow up maintenance to keep the ants away for good. :-)
He seemed to be using his expertise more than his tools, which I have a lot of respect for, and a lot of appreciation!

-I bought the deal from Angie's list because I thought I had rats in my house. but definitely had rats in my yard coming up from the sewers. They showed up initially but then arrived sporadically for the follow up work without advance notice. They also did not remove the traps in the basement, which did not catch anything but caused a hazard to ...More some contractors who were working in the basement - one trap fell down on a contractor and could have caused serious injury to his hand. I talked to them and the service improved. I then bought the pest treatment from them to get rid of ants and they were very good about regular treatments. This is a family business and it is clear that they are passionate about pest control and their safe-for-the environment products. They are very knowledgeable about pests and generous in giving information about the habits of rats and the various ants - I have both sweet ants that come inside to snack and slab ants which live in my sidewalks. They all look alike to me but they require different treatments. Who would have thought?

Contractor was professional, courteous and timely in his work. The job took - overall - a couple of months. The contractor made sure the space under the house was free of mice and worked diligently to seal all access to the area. On repeat appointments to check traps, the contractor was always on time and answered all questions without hesitation.
