Roof rats, also called citrus rats, could be living in your attic undetected. If you find roof rats, stop and call a pest control company.
Pests can enter your pantry via birdseed or groceries. Infestations from contaminated products can spread quickly. Learn to prevent and deal with pantry pests.
Contractors say homeowners with this trait are the most satisfied with home improvement projects.
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,
Pest Control reviews in Dickerson
Well when technician showed up he informs me the plan no longer exists. And they signed me up for quarterly treatments. So I agreed to do a year contract bi monthly. Second problem, technician shows up with the I don't want to be here attitude. Even glares at me throughout his time here. Complaining about previous customers. While passively complaining about my questions about service. Terrible attitude.
Third problem, I was told by technician that bait was put out. But also that "maybe" next time he will bring bait. Did NOT spray outside of my home! Spent about a half hour in the kitchen and 15 mins on the rest of the house with a "mister" that kills bugs on contact. Fourth problem, fast forward 3 weeks. Bugs have doubled! No dead bugs other than the initial treatment the FIRST day!
NOTHING keeping more bugs from entering my home. I was told there would be more activity first few days. Not a whole ** month. I could have accomplished this with a can of raid. Pointed out bug problem in wall panels but he would not treat it. I asked if bugs would move from one room to the other. His response no. Will they come in from the outside. Again no, shouldn’t.
Fifth problem, called because was unsatisfied with service. Never received a call back. Had to call I don't know how many times to get a call back. Then was told because I have a week before my next service which was actually 11 days that they would charge me. So much for the in-between visits for free for bad service. Then proceeded to tell me, "well you said you were satisfied with our services!"
This because of call to call center while technician was sitting on my couch to confirm contract. Made excuses for technician. When I requested on a new technician, argued with me about how inconvenient it is for them. I don't care how inconvenient it is for you. Your service is inconvenient for me! Absolute waste of money! Crap customer service. Crap work. Crap technicians. Terrible, terrible, terrible. Rip off!! You can't make a formal complaint, they don't care.
You need a real solution to a real problem. Roaches are a health hazard to you and your family. They carry diseases. Their goal is to keep the problem existing to keep money coming in regardless of the health hazards or personal problems it may cost you. Guess what, they are so slimy they only care to take you money. This should be illegal.

I am going to contract with Termite issue).
Now, just need to know if Angie's List will reimburse my original payment for the Pest Control?
Once scheduled, the service was fine (the gentlemen who came and performed the service was quick and efficient) except that despite explaining on the phone the issue was ants in my house, the serviceman never came inside. I was on a conference call, and didn't realize he wasn't coming in until he knocked to say he was leaving. Unfortunately, while the ant problem (the root cause for my call) got better, it never actually went away even during the month period where the treatment was supposed to be most effective.
they began to grow the service began to decline. We provided a key to our locked back yard (we
have a large Koi Pond-locking the gate keeps the kids out) and kept it in the
same spot until today.

Very Poor Business Practice
We received an invoice in the mail, I refused to pay for two
services eight days apart. Then I
discovered that they had been charging me the quarterly rate each month,
instead of the lower monthly rate.
The middle of February 2015 they called and said they were
coming-I called back and asked them not to come because they had been at my
home the end of January 2015 (2) wks. earlier.
Today, I received a letter, dated 2/17/15 cancelling my

I was a customer for over three years…expanding their
business without adequate professional staffing has made them unable to offer
service and most of all, Customer Service. Grade ‘F’.
