"We are very happy. The company is very professional and I received several calls prior to the fumigation to make sure I was prepared for the procedure. It is a" lot of prep work, but they were on it! Also, I called them several times with questions and they were very patient and knowledgeable. I spoke to several staff and all of them treated me with respect and courtesy. I highly recommend this company.

"We bought a house and the seller gave a pest inspection report. However, we had termite issues at a previous residence, and we wanted to make doubly sure that they" were not going to be a problem, so for peace of mind, we had come out to take a look. was our inspector. He was very thorough and pointed out a number of things that the original inspection did not (like the fact that the house was treated for subterranean termites in 2008 ? the sticker notice was in the garage), Advised us on how to prevent infestations, and also pointed out a couple other things that didn't have anything to do with termites but was super helpful (mouse droppings in the garage and possible access points). Definitely worth the money.

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 had them for 15-20 years but stopped using them because I felt like their service level has declined. They typically called me before they came so I could put my pets inside but on the last 2nd and 3rd service calls, they never called ahead. They did go ahead and spray, and thankfully, my pets were inside the last time because it was raining. I was ...More really surprised that a manager didn't call after I cancelled since I'd been a customer for so long.

After an extensive review process, I decided to enter into a contract with Company. What a GREAT decision on my part!! From first point of contact with who inspected the property, I continued to be amazed at the level of customer service Company extends to its clients. I’ve ...More work with multiple departments within their organization from the service technicians that treated the property to their wood specialty department that repaired termite damaged areas to their front office representatives. As our remodeling project continued, their service technicians returned to the home to treat all “new” construction. Their front office staff went above and beyond to accommodate the contractor’s schedule in order not to compromise the project completion date in spite of the fact that I could not always provide them with much advance notice !!

definitely exceeded my expectations and I would recommend them without hesitation. Five-plus star rating to each employee I’ve dealt with and to a company that values its customers !!

was punctual, friendly and professional. He came out to take a look, talked me through the process, coordinated with the details of the fumigation, then came back after that was done, to conduct a treatment for the subterranean termites. A real pleasure to work with, for what is usually an unpleasant task of homeownership.

They were great. Showed up on time, called the night before to confirm. Explained everything they were doing and answered all of my questions. Decided to sign-up for monthly service to insect problem.

They came; they found the issues; they gave a quote; they did the treatment on time and efficiently. They explained what the issues were. They explained what they did during the inspection to check for potential damages. They were upfront about different treatment types.
In general, very easy to work with.

I contacted Pest control thinking they would be a trusted company with my home for the Fumigation as they are nationwide . They sub out their contract to First Class Fumigation in my instance and my home was burglarized upon my return home. was who i contracted with and should be accountable for my ...More homes security and the whereabouts of my door key . There was no follow up from in Milpitas,Ca. or First Class Fumigation on the burglary. There was no communication until i entered a incident case to the BBB and was called by a GM to deny any wrong doing and was very rude with no Customer service/ experience skilsl. They have not taken any action for compensation to my losses and feel they haven't taken any responsibility in this incident. I have informed my large network of colleagues and family in this Bay Area to be on alert with agendas by these partners.

Contacted the company and told them I had found them through Angie's List. They had no problems honoring my pre-purchased discount, and made it very easy to apply.
The company is very good at communicating status... sent me regular emails about all scheduled appointments and soft copies of final reports. Eventual payment by credit card was ...More painless.
The inspector ( R.) showed up promptly and inspected the house, attic, basement, and garage for a few hours. Found evidence of dormant termite activity and confirmed the area which prompted my initial call. Also found other areas at risk and reported on them. He was very friendly and clear with all service options, explaining the next steps.
The treatment itself happened a few days later. and did the service quickly and professionally. There was no odor, damage to the treatment area, and no disruption to our use of the house. Very impressive.
The work I got has a multi-year warranty, and I already used it to have them check out an additional area after the initial service.
Highly recommended.
