"On or around June 25th he called her again. This time the caregiver answered the phone and referred him to my sister. At first he tried to sell my sister more service. When she told" him she did not want service, it turned into a collection call. We had never received a bill for the initial call, nor did we expect to get a bill under the circumstances. I called the owner again to emphasize that he was not to call my mother. He is fully aware that she has dementia, yet he continues to call in an attempt to take advantage of her. He threatened to send her, me, and my sister all to collections for a $54.00 bill that we never received, for a service that we did not want. Neither my mother, my sister, or myself have signed any kind of contract. On November 14th, he called my sister threatening collection again. We still have not seen a bill. He lied to my sister, and claimed that I had signed his contract. She knew it was a lie, because I live 5 hours away in Houston. We are unsure if he tried to call Mom again before he called us. My sister warned him again, not to call and bother our mother again. She also explained that Mom did not need the additional stress, as her husband of 56 years passed away just a few weeks after his 90 day guarantee. I am not alleging that his bug spray killed my father, but it still makes me angry that my father died just a few months after their house was sprayed with toxic chemicals with out our consent. Basically, my parents did not have a pest problem, until
started calling.

"It went GREAT! I spoke with the owner,
to schedule service. They came out at the time they promised and got right to work. They set traps for the squirrels," and closed the openings where the squirrels were managing to get into my attic. They trapped 6 squirrels in 14 days. After removing all of the squirrels they removed the droppings and damaged insulation. I would definitely recommend them!

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,

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.

They solved the ant problem. Scheduling an appointment is great. They can come by when I am not here to spray the exterior of the house. I am very happy with them.

We had a report from them that states that they came out and did not view any termites in the inspection. We gave this inspection to our buyers of our home. They had their own inspection done and there has been photos provided along with the report showing multiple areas of termite damage. We have requested that
Indian River Exterminators Provider Name Locked
send their reports over to us from the entire time that we have used them since 2000. This is the only objective to our home being purchased. We have never been told in 14 years that there has been any structural damage done to our home. We have now found at that it is not their policy to inform us of any structural damage. The other company is also showing that live termites came out of the basement.

The only paper work they have sent us is the contract we signed back in 2000. We never thought we had any issues with this company until now. We only want the reports and they have not given them to us. We need to know if we were paying for ineffective service all of these years, or if these new reports are inaccurate.

They did do a really good job for me. They were on time and professional. It was an overall good experience, but I ended up paying extra money for the service that I received due to extra spikes/netting being needed.

They come out regularly. They just come out and do their thing. It seemed to work. It's good. They do their job. I don't have a problem. The problems disappear. They did the garage without an additional charge. They're always there.

They were excellent. I pay for a year service and they give me a free. I love the fact that they give me feedback. If I'm not satisfied, they'll come right back.

We had a yellow jacket nest in our backyard. The technician (
Indian River Exterminators Provider Name Locked
?) was very knowledgable and answered all my questions. He sprayed the nest and said to call him in a few days if the yellow jackets were still around. Their price was very reasonable and almost 3 times less than another company's quote. If we ever have any other bug issues, we will definitely use Soles.

When scheduling the appointment with
Indian River Exterminators Provider Name Locked
, I provided details of the sweet odor in my home's crawl space. He proactively conducted research on his own before arriving. Based on that research and an on-site inspection of the crawl space and vents, he determined that the odor wasn't pest-related. The bottom line was that there would be no work for him. At that point,
Indian River Exterminators Provider Name Locked
could've insisted on conducting a full-house inspection to drum up some business, then pressure-sell me to have the work done. Or he could've walked away immediately because he got no work through this appointment. He took the high road instead. He spent several minutes offering his opinion/theory of the possible origin of the odor and a couple of ways I could deal with the problem. I greatly appreciated his concern.
Although he didn't get a job with me that day, I'll seriously consider him for my home's pest control needs in the future. That's how impressed I was and still am with his outstanding customer service.
