"This is the first time we have used
. My husband saw their truck in the neighborhood and I was interested because they say their treatments" last 21 days, which is much longer than most other mosquito control companies. We purchase 5 sprays over the course of the summer and have had a mosquito free yard all summer - it has been amazing. Especially with all the rain we had this spring, the results were amazing. We were able to enjoy our yard much more this summer and I did not receive a single bite in our yard. No adverse affects to our dogs. One time they sprayed close to a rain and it wasn't as effective, we were outside with friends and mosquitos were around us. They came back out within 5 business days to perform a respray(at no cost to us) and that took care of any problems we had. I don't know how we would live without this next summer!

"The technician arrived early and answered all my questions about the products and process for the visit. Very clean-cut and friendly and left a good impression." He put on footies immediately, and did a thorough inspection before beginning product application. The work was completed quickly and we discussed options for escalating the rodent mitigation if needed.

Pest Control Services

A homeowner's guide to hiring an exterminator or pest control company to rid your home of insects or rodents.

Mice and rats

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.

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.

Pest Control reviews in El Cajon

The quality of the service provided has been fine so far (based on one treatment). My negative review is based on the quality of their sales-people. I had a gentleman come to the door (waking me up from sleep- I work nights and sleep during the day). The conversation was quick and they said if I switched to Reliant they could offer me slightly cheaper payments than my current pest control company and that it would be a month-to-month service that I could cancel at any time (which is important for me as I focus on pet control during just the summer months and like to cancel or put my account on hold during the winter months). The guy had me quickly sign a few places on the contract and I was not given a

to read it through. As I was still in a sleepy haze this did not seem as suspicious to me as it should have. When I call in the cancel the service, I find out that I am locked in a 1-year agreement and to cancel I have to pay 75% of the remaining contract.
Basically I feel like that salesman just told me whatever I wanted to hear (lied, lied, lied) to get me to sign up knowing that I would be trapped with the contract. It is sneaky and speaks volumes about the quality of the people hired by this company. I would not recommend this company. Pest-control companies are available in droves throughout Houston and when you can have your pick I would not pick a company that

El Cajon Exterminators Provider Name Locked
was able to come a couple of hours after I called, which I really appreciated. He was nice and easy to work with and, most importantly, got rid of the scary hornet's nest. I was concerned about having the insecticide placed near our house and he explained how he would minimize this. He also was careful not to damage the tree that the hive was in, and took the time to show the inside of the hive to us (since we were curious).

They completed only 56% of those inspections, but because of an error by our previous management company, they were paid in full. We have been trying for 2-3 months to get them to complete the rest of the work and provide us with a full report on the status of all units inspected and any treatment provided per the terms of the contract. They have STILL not completed the inspections or provided us with an up-to-date report. It is difficult to contact the owner directly; we can only leave messages at the one phone number given; unclear if it is an answering service or private number. VERY frustrating.

Service provider was on time and did an exceptional job of insect control. He even sprayed for yellow jackets because he saw a nest, which was outside of the original scope of work.

Very professional and prompt. Explained the process to be used which was a combination of dust and a liquid spray.

explained that it will take a couple days for all the yellow jackets to be gone since some were not in the nest during the day. He also assured me that if I continue to see them after a couple weeks, to call back and he will return. The cost was much lower than the prices of competitors I had gotten estimates from. I am very happy with the service and

Let me first state that I did not receive services from this company. On 8/10/15 I scheduled potential dates of 8/12, 8/13, or 8/14 via Angie's List for

adamantly said they were not beetles, but was unable to identify the insect at the time. They wanted to take the sample back to the office for someone else to possibly identify the insect and was told someone would call me with their findings. I have not received one phone call from

Darien made three trips to my residence. One for an estimate, one for the termite treatment and a third after 30 days to inspect for any signs of termites. He was exactly on time right to the minute on each visit. A very pleasant surprise. He was very personable, knowledgeable and thorough. And so far no signs of termites. I was assured they would come back if I had any more problems. I will definitely continue to use this company.
