"We had 3 companies come in and give us estimates. All the charges were in the same range. We chose this company because they only come once a year and do everything." They started in the attic and treated the entire house, including the base of the house outside. They did the soffits and took down all the critters (except the spiders, which I asked him to leave). He removed the light switches on the walls and treated inside the walls. If we see any bugs within the year, they will come back at no additional charge. There was slight odor after the treatment but it was gone within 24 hours.

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.

When we found evidence of mice in our home, we turned to Angie's List to locate someone to help. Based on positive reviews, we called Arrow and a few other companies.
Ridgecrest Exterminators Provider Name Locked
Ring answered the phone at Arrow and scheduled an appointment to come the following day. When he arrived, he performed a thorough inspection inside and outside our home, including the basement, crawlspace and attic.
Ridgecrest Exterminators Provider Name Locked
was very knowledgeable and was quick to offer suggestions to help us prevent rodent access going forward. At the end of the inspection, he explained what Arrow could and could not do for us. This was necessary because the inspection also showed evidence of a bat problem in addition to the mouse issue we already knew about.

made such a great impression, we decided to hire Arrow on the spot before any other companies had even returned our calls.
A few days after

's inspection,

came to set bait stations. He explained how they work and told us what to expect in the following weeks. He placed stations and bait packets in various points throughout the house, attic, basement and crawlspace. We followed

's instructions and as expected, did find a few dead mice during the next few weeks. Since that time, we have not seen any droppings or evidence of mice. Our treatment came with a six month warranty and four months in, we are very pleased with the results.
We had a great experience with Arrow and can honestly recommend them with no reservations. It's a real pleasure to deal with companies with such personable and well trained employees.

It has been over a month and I have no seen any mice, rats or any evidence of them in my house. When he came by the pick up the traps he showed me the inside of the poison contains and it looks like a lot of mice chewed up the poison so it appears to have been effective.

is very knowledgeable and thorough. He went above and beyond what he was hired to do and I'm very happy to finally have a mouse free house :)

arrived on time and was very courteous. He drilled all holes neatly, dug the trenches around the house, applied the Termidor solution, filled the holes, cleaned up and departed. It took ~3.5 hours to complete. He was very knowledgeable and answered my questions. Overall a very pleasant experience.

I'll call
Ridgecrest Exterminators Provider Name Locked
for any pest control needs in the future, no questions asked. He arrived right on time (gave an hour window instead of those big companies that make you wait all day!) and was friendly and knowledgeable from the start. I had a strange smell in my master bath that I couldn't describe well.
Ridgecrest Exterminators Provider Name Locked
knew right away it was not the smell of any dead animal, but of his own volition he inspected the entire exterior of my home and went up into the attic (in 85 degree heat) to check for any signs of anything that was causing the smell (or anything else i should be concerned about). In the end, I have no pest issue, yet I am so glad I used angie's list to find

They were very thorough the office lady first told me i had to vacuum (to hatch the eggs because of the vibration) so i did. Then a technician came in the afternoon, he started with a yard spray that covered my entire yard then after that was complete he did the inside of my house which i had to vacate for several hours. Its been a month and my dogs have not scratched themselves like before. thanks ballards!
