"The first person who came out was professional and very quick. I had mentioned that I had seen a lot of wasp activity under our front deck stairs, but I never saw" him go under there. When I got his report via email, it never mentioned treating under the stairs. I emailed back and got a response right away. She said she had talked to the tech and that he did go under the stairs. I still didn't feel that it had been done since his clothes weren't dirty and I never actually saw him do it. She talked to him again and decided to just send someone back out. The sevice manager came out and got under the stairs and even gave me some helpful preventative tips for the Spring. My only issue was not having it all done in the first visit and the fact that there were nests left in my driveway after they'd been knocked down, but I was happy with the responsivness and how eager they were to make things right.

"The exterminator came on time and sprayed the inside of the house and sprinkled granules around the exterior. He was very efficient and I was impressed with the" company. The products used are environmental friendly. I was particularly interested in spraying for silverfish and he used some specific chemical in both baths and kitchen sink where silverfish are normally found.

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.

We had one of the dead bugs and unfortunately it is one of the very few that Mr.

does not treat. He identified the bug and gave us advice with how to proceed to get rid of it privately and/or professionally, whichever way we would choose. He was very knowledgeable and fair. We would definitely use him in the future if we had any other pest problems.

I contacted

to treat for fire ant problems - both inside my house and in my yard. I had to call a couple of times to get a response.

was polite and did a thorough job of treating. He used a spray inside and around the foundation and a powder for the mounds. I noticed there were wet areas of the spray on my kitchen floor afterwards that I had to use a paper towel to

up - it is a wood laminate and will swell if liquid is allowed to stand on it. There was a strong smell (and even 2 years later a slight remnant of the odor) of the pesticide in the freezer section of my refrigerator - and especially in the ice. I tossed out the ice several times and washed and disinfected the ice tray - also several times. I used my old ice trays in an older refrigerator to make ice for a long time. I also had to call

back to re-treat the mounds in the yard in the spring, as there was fire ant activity again. Because of the bad ice smell I'm not sure I'd use

again - although it might be the same with any other pest control company. There wasn't an option for "maybe" which is my real answer as to whether I'd use

They were prompt, polite, and professional. Scheduling a visit was easy and the person who came to do the work was great to work with. Very impressive and very good at explaining not only the process but what I could expect to see over the next day or two as the insecticide did its work after the nest was removed.

I was finding yellow jackets dying in my house all the time, however I couldn't tell where they were coming from. Today, I got home from traveling for a week, and I saw so many yellow jackets dead on my window-sill that I went outside to investigate - TONS of yellow jackets were flying in and out of the brick in my house. First thing I did was I jumped on AngiesList and saw high reviews for this company, and immediately called. After talking to him for three minutes asking for a little guidance, I decided I knew I was going to work with him.
He said, "I'm actually headed up that area right now to drop off some paperwork - I can swing by in less than an hour if you want this taken care of today." He came, he sprayed, he left, yellow jackets died. The yellow jackets weren't happy with him at all, but I sure was. don't think I could ask for much more. 5 stars.

It went very well. I was happy with his thoroughness & his attention to pet issues. He went back over some areas I was concerned with, to make sure I saw that he had covered them.
The only issue was that when I signed up for the deal, while talking to an Angie's List person on the phone, I mentioned that ants were the problem, & was assured they were part of the coverage. However, when I called to make the appointment, I was told that ants were specifically excluded from this deal, and it would cost more to cover them. I paid the higher amount, but was annoyed that there had been this poor coordination & communication between Angies' List & the provider. The provider assured me they would take it up with Angie's list to be sure this didn't happen to anyone else. I hope they followed through.

When I hired this company with a service plan of every other month I was very clear in requesting not to fumigate the yard on a raining day. Not only did this provider fumigated on a day that it rained all day. The technician lied to me. My fumigation was scheduled for a Friday, when I noticed that it was going to rain all day I immediately e-mailed the contact person that I had been dealing with and he said that he was not sure if the fumigation was going to be done on that Friday. To my surprise when I got home I found the notice hanging on my front door that my yard had been fumigated and by the same person that I had been e-mailing with. I requested a re-done and he responded that he was not sure if it could be done. I responded by cancelling my services. A few days later someone from the company contacted me to find out why I was cancelling my services and he said that he will for sure re-do my yard but I can no longer trust this company. I'm also surprised that this company has good reviews in Angie's List when I have now found very poor reviews on other sites.

Once I purchased the service on your website, they promptly contacted me to set an appointment The service person was on time, professional, courteous, experienced, efficient and very helpful--I could not ask for more. I signed up for quarterly pest control service for my home. I was not aware of this company until I clicked on Angie's List. I am very pleased with this "no hassle" service call--it's just what I've been looking for. I had previously contacted a few pest control companies on my own (before Angie's List), and either did not get a response, or the response I did get was not what I wanted. I would recommend this company without reservations. Thank you Angie's List.....first time I every tried it!
