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.

Well, they just came back for maintenance. A different person came out, but he was well informed about our particular problems. We no longer see any ants and we are happy that we were able to find a solution that actually worked for our problem.

spent at most five or ten minutes at the house, with most of that time taken up with paperwork.
I showed him an anthill on the side of the house where the ants lived, but he refused to spray it or shake "ant bait" on it, as it was twelve inches over my property line onto the neighbor's side of this imaginary property line. The ants didn't care about any property line, but
Calhoun Exterminators Provider Name Locked
sure did. Legal and liability reasons, he said. I asked if I could just borrow the shaker for five seconds while he turned his back. No way. He could get sued or
Calhoun Exterminators Provider Name Locked
his job. Very professional. A stickler for the rules.
There were swarms of thousands little ant-like bugs crawling around the back of the house, but he said he had no idea what those bugs were. "Agricultural pests, probably". He didn't have anything to
Calhoun Exterminators Provider Name Locked
them, and he showed me that spaying them with his ant spray didn't phase them one bit. "We don't do agricultural pests". "Sorry, Can't help you there."
That was the biggest waste of $90 I've made in a long time.

We live in the Los
Calhoun Exterminators Provider Name Locked
County foothills, which is prime habitat for tree rats and other undesirable rodents. The population of these animals has been increasing, and this old house is not hard for them to penetrate. In the past, we had rodent exclusion services that turned out to be expensive but inadequate, so we have had recent episodes of rodents getting into the attic, the crawlspace, and the house proper.
I called Stealth based on information at Angie's list. We had a rodent service once before but needed another review and treatment. I don't like to poison the animals because of the potential impact on beneficial creatures such as raptors and pets, so I asked for a poison-free service.
The office staff,
Calhoun Exterminators Provider Name Locked
, provides excellent and prompt service. She responds to email promptly and accurately. She schedules services very quickly, and the technicians arrive as planned. The inspector,
Calhoun Exterminators Provider Name Locked
, conducted a thorough examination of the house and provided a detailed report with recommendations a few days later. Since some work had been done previously to rodent-proof the house, much of what was needed was remediation and correction of new problems.
The proposed solutions offered us some flexibility. Although I am not particularly handy, some of the work was i a category I could manage myself. Since we are retired and on fixed income, every
Calhoun Exterminators Provider Name Locked
to economize is definitely appreciated. But anything that required mortar, working above eye level, and construction, was beyond my reach. We asked Stealth to carry out the plan they proposed except for a few items I could do myself. They returned a few days later and did that - they closed some gaps into the atti by adding Angle-Iron (L-Bar) and mortar, and they provided a new concrete platform and
Calhoun Exterminators Provider Name Locked
door to the crawlspace They repaired the mortar in a few places. They placed snap traps in the attic and near other entryways. They do not provide interior services or trapping in the home. We know of several rodents that are no more, and we know that at least one is still here, but we are confident not for long, and that no new animals will find their way into the home.
Stealth is qualified to, and will, place bait stations, but we declined that service. They also offer a monthly monitoring service ,but we elected to pass that up for financial reasons.
One of the most important service that Stealth provided was to explain to us what was going on and how to watch for it and control it in the future. I have worked with many companies in the past that offer and provide expert services, but this company is truly excellent not only in providing the services, but also in providing the homeowner with some options and some very sound information. They explained everything in a very patient, non-patronizing way. I am glad to have done business with them. .

I found two live bats flying around my house and needed to find out where they were coming from and develop of course of action to remove them permanently. The first inspector from

looked all around the house and even went into the attic but could not find the bats. Instead he found a bunch of old wasp nests and recommended I get an annual contract for pest removal. The next day I found a dead bat in the garage and called them back.

immediately sent another inspector to my house. This one,
Calhoun Exterminators Provider Name Locked
, knew what he was doing. He found some bat guano and live bats around the chimney and several more dead bats in the attic (which he said had been there a long time) and recommended exclusion treatment which would cost about $500. The area of infestation was quite obvious to the
Calhoun Exterminators Provider Name Locked
and pretty easy to identify if you knew what you were looking for. I definitely got my $39 worth of inspections from
Calhoun Exterminators Provider Name Locked
, but in the end my condo association recommended someone who had done a bat extraction in my neighbors house and I ended up going with them at a lower cost. I'll never figure out why the first inspector was unable to find them and am hoping that they will not use him again for this type of problem.

was able to pinpoint the problem so I'm giving them four stars.

We were remodeling our kitchen and when opening up one of the walls we would find an infestation of carpenter ants, so we had submitted online to have them call us. They called early the next day to say they would have someone come between 12-2pm. We never received a call and no one showed up. We called 5 times, with no help and no explanation on why no one showed up or called. We will never be using this company again.

has been spraying my house from the time that he sprayed the foundation when I started building all the way up and including now. He has always been responsive in returning my calls and goes above and beyond when it comes to scheduling a time to come and spray. I know that his work is effective whenever I see those dead bugs just inside the door. That is just about as far as they make it. And with all this rain, the bugs manage to get in and they stay just long enough for us to pick up their dead little bodies. If they manage to get in they leave through the garbage can. I sign up on the annual plan and
Calhoun Exterminators Provider Name Locked
or his Son will come as many times as I feel is necessary so that if I do see a roach or any other bug they are dead, dead, dead.

They were great at communicating with us, came on time and did a very professional job of removing a basketball sized hornet nest in a tree.
