" made the corrections that were outlined in the report, in addition they arranged the gas shutoff through SDG&E. They performed the work" in the exact manner and timeframe that they had promised. This portion of the transaction could not have gone any smoother and I appreciate it.

" originally came to inspect my attic for termites and one local area in an outside door jam. He provided a quote to treat the infected areas" using an injectable chemical instead of tenting the house. According to , by treating the wood with the chemical it would also prevent further infestation in the treated wood. For those reason I selected Untied Termite Control and have been satisfied. In addition to not having to tent my house, the cost was significantly less than tenting and it was guaranteed for 3 years. In October 2015, I had a swarm of termites invaded my living room. I called on a Sunday and he responded immediately (that was impressive!). Within days he identified the likely area of entry and treated a wide area on either side of the entry point. Although this swarming was most likely related to the intense heat we've been having, and not in the location of the original termite problem, it was covered under my warranty. I would recommend this company.

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 arranged to come to my house to do an initial pest service last Friday. The service tech called me and since it was raining that day we decided to reschedule. He told me someone would call me. Nobody called me but the service
tech turned up at my door at 7.30am on monday. I have 2 dogs and i need to schedule this type ...More of thing and couldn't do it that day. He told me that the office would be in touch but i have not heard a thing. This company is expensive compared to others in the industry and they pride themselves on great customer service. My experience has been far from great.

, the owner is great. He is really great. Professional, on-time, and willing to go above and beyond. He has a professional staff, and always gives a courtesy call, the day before the service as a reminder.

They were friendly and did a lot I didn't expect. They knocked down most of the spider webs and sprayed around the perimeter on the house. Unfortunately our spiders lived through it and are still around.

I left a voicemail on Sunday, 9/06 regarding a sudden pest infestation. No call was returned by Monday at 10:30 a.m. I called again and spoke with a woman who said she would have a man call me back. I did not get a return call. I called again at 2:00 p.m on Monday and spoke to another woman who said she would get right on it and I would get a call ...More back. I never got a call back ever. I found another very responsive provider, 's Pest Control and .

Communication was poor. I told the contact person I know I have rodents but I need a termite check too. She asked if I was selling the house and needed a certificated inspector. I said no. They set up a Sat. appt. and gave me a 3 hour window. I called after they were a half hour past the window. They contacted the estimator and said they are running ...More late. They called back again and asked if 3:30 would be okay? I had been waiting since 11 am. I was trying to decide if I was going to put my old dog down that day. I had a Quality of Life appt. at 4. I said No. She was apologetic and empathetic. Then we tried to rescheduled. I sat around again. I checked my messages and she said the tech was outside but I wasn't home he waited 20 minutes. I said did he ring the door bell she said no he didn't want to come in the gate b/c of my beware of dog sign (which is mandatory to post whether your dog is aggressive or not). I was home up stairs waiting for someone to knock/ ring the door bell. She asked if he could come back at 3 something again. Again I had the sad job of taking my dog in b/c his health had declined so much. She was very nice and said We rescheduled for Thursday. at 7 am. So I could be the first appt. I appreciated that. Then, 7:30 happened and came to the door apologized and I said do you want to go in the attic to give me your estimate for the termites bc its already getting hot. He said, I am not the termite guy. I am the other pests. I am not qualified to do termites. He call the office she tried to explain and reschedule with they other guy. I said no thank-you, I have had enough. I just put my dog down. They did have a supervisor leave a message to try to rectify but was worried that communication would continue into the treatment of the rodents and termites.

We had used another service which had only treated the inside of our home. That didn't work so we decided to try because of the great deal they had going. The technician was punctual, professional and was willing to work with us to use an organic product around the fruit trees, herbs and vegetables we had growing in the ...More backyard.
After the first treatment we noticed a significant improvement and after the second treatment the fleas were gone! It was an amazing deal and will definitely use again if we ever need help with pest control.

Very impressive bee removal by . Bees were a making hive under a hollow artificial decorative rock on an upper bank in our back yard. The queen was found and moved to 's wooden bee box and all the rest of the bees followed her. came back in the evening to take the bees just ...More like he said he would. It's been 3 months since their removal and no bees have returned. We are very pleased with the care and respect for the bees shown by . We will have him out again if we have any more problems. So glad we found Safe & Alive on Angie's List.

No one wants to have rats invade their home, but neighbors did a major remodel of their back yard sending the rats on a hunt to find a new home. I was really stunned at how quickly the rats presence became an issue, thankfully Christian at handled the business quickly and pretty painlessly (for me). In the 4 visits to my home ...More Christian sealed up all the possible entrances and got rid of all the rats that were causing the problem. I could not hope for a better result. I hope I never have to use again for anything but if a situation were to arise I would definitely call them up again.
