"
was the bee removal expert and he did a great job rescuing the hive to take it to an apiary. He climbed from the roof to the tree on a ladder," carefully cut away smaller branches and removed the hive intact. He educated us on the service and bee behavior during and after the hive removal and made sure we were safe. Great work and great way to save the bees.

"When the exterminator arrived for my appointment, we went over the issues/concerns that I was having with bugs in and around our home. My biggest concern was that" my cats and
would be ok being in the home a few hours after the house was sprayed. The gentleman,
, was very personable and understood my concerns. He wore shoe covers upon entering my home which I found to be very respectful. He did a great job spraying and getting rid of the ant and spider issues. He also took some extra time to spray in places he believed could help us prevent future issues. I highly recommend this vendor and have already signed up for quarterly appoinents.

You're home watching TV with the family when you hear a high-pitched chirp accompanied by the flapping of wings. Then you see the furry, winged creature circling above you.

Bats eat beetles, moths, mosquitoes and other bugs — sometimes hundreds in a single hour. Read this infographic to learn more about the benefits bats provide.

Here's how to avoid getting stung by haphazard wasp nest removal.

You know those bugs that bugged you last spring? Even when the snow hits, you might discover they never really went away.

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,

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 was sympathetic the first time he couldn't come, he said to call the office and tell them HE said I could reschedule at my convenience, I called and the lady laughed at me and said that was not possible!!! So much for customer service. Also he said the local office was in Dallas, Texas and they didn't realize the distances involved when they did the scheduling, I thought how could they call Dallas, Texas a local office???
They second time he cancelled I was not as sympathetic and told him so. I called the office and asked to speak to the manager, and was told he was out, I gave my name and phone number and asked to be called as I was being treated poorly. I never did receive a call. As I had paid my yearly fee, finally a tech came out and did the termite inspection in a total of 5 minutes, clearly not adequate. To sum up my experience I will not allow

in my house again, nor would I recommend them. These same people that would never call back or schedule appointments, now that I did not renew my contract can't seem to leave me alone, I have asked several times for them to stop calling and emailing me!!!!!

was prompt, efficient and considerate of my allergies. All my questions were answered and the problems abated. My apologies for forgetting to write my review. Overall, the quality of the customer service was the best and is one of the reasons I'm back on Angie's List to select another vendor for other services.

They were most helpful in email and phone. The exterminator arrived, told me exactly what he was going to do since this was our first experience with an exterminator. He sprayed the house, attic and garage. He 'hit' some problem areas with a bit more spray. He placed granules outside. We signed a year's contract, so he will be back quarterly to do more outside treatment only. We seem to not have as many bugs on the inside. We definitely think the annual contract is a good deal and so far are pleased with the work performed.

This is a great value! Obviously it is an introduction rate and they want to service your house on a quarterly basis for much more money (the going rate of about $100 an application), but I haven't seen very many bugs or ants since the application. They were very professional, and pointed out some mouse holes to my wife.

A swarm of several thousand bees had suddenly taken over a squirrel house hanging in an oak tree in our backyard.
Troy Exterminators Provider Name Locked
came out on Saturday, the day after I called, and removed the honey bee swarm. He first sprayed them to calm them, then removed the squirrel house with the bees and took them to his truck. He then sprayed a residual pesticide to prevent bees from returning. After four days, the stragglers were gone.

Couldn't have had a better experience. Tech was exactly on time, polite, and respectful. We had several wasp nests around and needed to address that along with a general treatment indoors and

treatment outdoors. Works was done quickly and efficiently. Tech even took care of some wasp nests I hadn't even noticed yet. Haven't seen a single bug since the treatment.
