"It seemed like overnight an ant colony moved into my house. Ants were everywhere!! Upon purchasing treatment via Angie's List, I called and left a message."
and Pest Control called back within 24 hours and were very professional, from office to technician. The Technician knew just what to do and answered my questions without me even asking. :-)

"To tell you the truth we trusted this company because their reviews on Angie's List...
confirmed and scheduled the 1st application. We" were running crazy this day due to closing on the home and they were able to accommodate our schedule by allowing us to leave the door unlocked and simply complete their service. Top Notch and 3 more reviews to come after quarterly treatments...The best pest control company is one that keeps the unwanted visitors far from eyesight and as long as they are not present then this company is doing what they promised. Please hire them based on the
fact that they are the company that you re looking for and didn't know it yet. The
Family thoroughly satisified

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.

The owner of the company showed up to provide the initial free estimate, while a little late for the appointment it was not a big deal. He thoroughly explained how the treatment would be done, provided the quote, and made sure I was aware of the their one year guarantee.
The treament is done in three parts, on the day of the first treatment, the exterminator showed up right at the beginning of the window of time they provided me, was incredibly professional and made sure I knew everything important for the following two treaments.
Even after just the first treament the tenant is extremely pleased with the results, and we look forward to the next two treatments.

Very professional, friendly and attentive to my needs of keeping things as pet and child friendly as possible in terms of areas treated. If I have additional bug sightings or issues, they come back for no additional fee which is great!

We expressed concern about rodents in our crawl space and had
Wilmette Exterminators Provider Name Locked
do an evaluation of the problem and they reported that we had a significant rodent problem. They gave us a quote of ~$5,000 to fix the problem by removing and replacing all of the insulation, sealing all possible entry points, and sanitizing the crawl space. The technician provided pictures showing the rodent activity and seemed thorough in his inspection.
Given
Wilmette Exterminators Provider Name Locked
's cost we had another pest control service perform an inspection. They (company name: Stop Bugging Me) also did a thorough job but came to a much different conclusion. While they did see rodent activity and areas of entry, their course of action was quite different. They sealed the entry points and placed traps to make sure all points of entry were discovered and sealed. They made two follow up visits to inspect the traps and noted no additional activity. All of this cost around $300.

We have used

twice at two houses where there was rat activity: once for rats in an attic space and then recently for rats under the house.

staff is professional, punctual, and so easy to communicate with. The prices might be higher than competition, but really fair for the thorough and excellent work they do. Received accurate communications on when techs will arrive, and all work was done well and things were put back/reconnected/closed up so we didn't need to clean up after the tech, which was great! We also use

for monthly bug control and have been completely satisfied with that work in both locations. Highly recommended!
One other thing we appreciate is that whenever possible,

was terrific - actually, I had had him before for a carpenter bee problem and he did a great job on that, too - very punctual, professional and kind. And the person who does the scheduling at

is very accommodating. A couple of the entry points will require a handyman to dig up rotten wood and replace it, and I won't know until spring if those entry points are the main problem or not - the ground is too hard to do that work now. But

I purchased their service specifically to eradicate rats from my attic. The service person showed up at my door prepared to spray for insects. I informed him that he was here due to rodents, not bugs. He looked around in the attic, declared fresh rodent droppings in two areas and put 1 bait device in each area. 10 days later I still hear them scratching around in the attic. I called the company to report it and set a new appointment for them to return, since they issued a 90 day warranty. They were not going to be available for several days, so I purchased rat traps myself. Within 48 hours we killed 5 rats in our attic. I have not heard any more noises, nor have any more rodents been killed. I didn't pay them so I could do it myself, but unfortunately that's how I fixed the problem.
