"A few years ago I was displeased with one of the service techs and let the company know about my displeasure. It's important to note I wasn't disappointed" with the quality of the work, as all pest issues have been abated since I've been using
, but I was disappointed with what I perceived to be the unprofessionalism of the service tech assigned to my home at that time.
and Ed were very responsive and more than adequately addressed my concerns to my satisfaction. I would wholeheartedly recommend this company for all of your pest control needs. They will work with you and are fairly priced. Never once have they been a no-show. The pests from the past are no shows but not these guys.

"The technician called ahead and asked if he could come by early, always appreciated. He spent a fair bit of time spraying around the house. Then he came in and put" up a shield of bug deterrence. He treated all the exterior walls, the attic space, under the sinks, everywhere. It was glorious. He even explained a little as he went along, which I found useful. Super courteous and knowledgeable, two things I like to see in experts. All told it was a great experience from top to bottom.

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.

responded to my call late on a Friday. He communicated with my tenant directly to set up an appointment and took care of everything promptly, politely, professionally. A pleasure to do business with and he is definitely my pest control guy now.

We actually have renters in this house, and the reason I gave this an A rating is because our renters did not call us with any complaints after the service was performed (it was supposed to last for 3 months, so ... after 3 months and no further complaints of pests, we assumed that everything went well and that the spray lasted). We have excellent renters, so if there was anything that they felt was unprofessional or poor quality, they would have informed us. I cannot recall the actual price -- it might have been $150, but it was not more than that and it was a really good deal compared to all the other companies out there, and that is probably why I would use them again if we needed another treatment). I also cannot recall the exact date -- might have been at the end of

actually. Anyway -- we were happy that we didn't have our renters calling and complaining about anything, so ... I would trust them again.

process was great, they showed up on time, were very thorough and explained everything regarding what they sprayed and Granules used outside of house for ants and took care not to spray any areas that our kids would encounter, Would recommend them and we will use them again

Last straw was when they wanted full payment up front and after payment was made they would schedule work for following month sometime. I canceled the deal when they wanted full payment up front.

Inspection was great. Company indicated I needed a new chimney cap. They came and installed it a week later without me having to be home or provide any entry to my home. Thanks again

We back up to a forest preserve and have had a terrible issue with mice until we started using this service. Since using them we have no mice inside our house. In the summer months they also spray for spiders and ants. Excellent service, excellent price, excellent customer service. I highly recommend this company.

Very professional and kind. I feel he went above and beyond the call of duty. Will definitely hire him again. The treatment lasted several months - much longer than I expected.

The GOOD: They really understand cleaning up damage from rodents and doing everything they can to prevent new ones from coming in. They were generally professional when coming to do the majority of the work. They paid careful attention to make sure that they didn't bring any problems into the house, and this was good. I will say that it was surprising that they played some loud obnoxious heavy metal music while doing their work. That was annoying.
The problem has been with some of the communication related issues such as:
1) Customer Expectation: When we were first quoted the price, we were told to expect 2 or more days to get the work done. So I took 2 PTO days from my job. I was surprised when they were finishing up after 1 day and expecting payment. One guy did come back for an our or two for a second day. They told me they added more people to the project and got it done sooner. It would have been good to have this information sooner so I could have changed my plans with my employer.
2) Communication issues:There have been many, many times when we have tried to arrange someone to do trap checks and somehow things never work out quite right. Most recently we were told someone would be here at 9:30 and, and we got a call saying they were leaving their business at 9:30 and would be at our place by 10:30 (he reminded us there was a 1 hour window after all.) He agreed to call my wife at her work so she could meet him at our house later that day. The call never came. Apparently, he was there because we found his business card sticking in our door later that night. I was expecting a call back from the office the next day with an apology and an attempt to re-schedule but one never came. I guess we will have to wait until March for our next trap check.
The reason I said I may not use this provider in the future is because I would probably shop around a bit more first. And while I do value the physical part of their work (the actual clean up and trap stuff) I also value the customer support elements around this work, and this is something that Discrete Rodent
