"Summary: we haven't had mice in the house since May 2014. We have had interactions with several of their staff. To a person all are extremely professional" and easy to work with. They go about their work quickly and efficiently. They keep your home clean and neat as they work. They have never tried to oversell. While expensive (my sole B grade), they definitely solved the problem and we're thankful.

was awesome. First trip out was to identify rodent entry points to the attic and to set 10 traps. Second visit he patched the holes - appears" that he did a very thorough job - and to retrieve the 4 traps that caught rats. He was very professional and prompt. I would highly recommend

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,

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.

treated my house for ants, and set bait boxes out for rats in the barn. He came back right away, when the ants did, and treated it again. No ants now. When I called about the rat that ran down the barn aisle, he re-baited the two traps, but the rats must really like that stuff. I guess I need a grown cat from the rescue to take care of them! (My house cats are too old for that activity!)

I bought a deal for $25 that included an initial insect/bug spray with an agreement to schedule 3 more quarterly sprays for $79 each. They came out exactly when scheduled, sprayed the inside in about 20 minutes and then went outside. It's been two weeks and the only bug I've seen is a dead one. All happy here!

Very professional and knowledgeable. Absolutely no more ants. They were on the site within 30 minutes. Sprayed and within 24 hrs. they were dying. We have had NO more problems. Would definitely recommend and would use again if any pest problem arises.

I contacted Stutt's Pest Control via email through Angie's List and they called me the next day. Mr. Stutt's was timely and worked on determining where the point of entry for the pest was quickly. He provided photos he took of the area with his phone. (It was a hole behind my dishwaser and he was not authorized to disconnect the dishwasher so he got down under it to look and take photos. He determined the best way to resolve the issue and identified what type of pest it was. He went up under my house and placed pellets for dealing with any further intrusions and walked with me around my property to evaluate any weaknesses that might contribute to further pest invasions. He gave me ideas for how to resolve those issues. He was excellent, friendly and professional!

I get a notice before they come outside to see if I would also like to do another interior inspection (included in my quarterly subscription). Very easy since no scheduling is required. We had an ant problem in three rooms when they came initially and have not had a problem since (approximately 10 months later). He also found mouse droppings upstairs and after setting some poison we have not seen anymore droppings. The $90 bill seems a little steep every quarter, but it is nice knowing that if we have another rodent or bug problem, any appointments will be covered unless something special like mosquitoes.

We have been using them for six years and have always been impressed with their professionalism, responsiveness, and level of service. They do what they say they are going to do and when they say they are going to do it. If we have any issues with pests between regular visits, they are great about coming out to check on things and following up. Highly recommend them.

was great! Very responsive, easy to schedule, nice and professional. Came 2x - inspected the exterior to identify possible access points, sealed them and placed traps inside. We would use his services again - hopefully, we don't need to!
