"Called company at noon and asked if someone could come out today. CSR said she would contact manager and have him call me. Mr.
called and" said
would be at my house in about 10 minutes. He was. I showed him the area of the kitchen where the ants were seen. He went under the house, found the nest and destroyed. He would come back if we saw any more ants within thirty days. He left information about the company's services and prices because I asked for it.

"I am writing this review about 9 months after the initial service so we were able to see if it really worked and how well. IT REALLY WORKED! For the past 7 years," we routinely found 5-20 scorpions outside monthly. We would find about 10-15 inside our home every year. I sealed doors to my best ability. Monthly professional pest treatment and stucco to our walls had modest improvements. Finally we decided to look into sealing our home and received estimates from 3 companies. One performed complete interior/exterior and was at least 3-4 times more expensive and seemed very pleasant(although felt more like scare tactics). One estimate was average regarding knowledge and warranties. And then there was
. I was thoroughly impressed with his quick call back and estimate timeframe. Upon meeting, again very punctual, his knowledge and work ethic is evident. He recommendation for only sealing entry points and exterior was spot on and he did not try to oversell or use any scare tactics. He actually talked me out of interior sealing and saved a lot of money. His extensive construction history is one of the many assets that makes him a master in this field. The day of work, he showed up exactly at 6:30am, just like he and all the other reviews say. Meticulous, efficient, professional, courteous, clean, and honest are understatements when you deal with
and his assistants. He performed the work himself and with one assistant for a 4500 sq ft home. They were done by 1:30 pm and everything was left as it was found, and cleaner. He showed all the work that was done and let us know we may see a few scorpions as they die off over the next year or so. Now 9 months out, we have only found 1 dead scorpion and couldn't be happier with the service. I can not recommend
any higher. It was a pleasure to have met and had service with someone with his expertise, knowledge, work ethic, and integrity. Thanks
, we will definitely use your services if we ever move.

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.

I called Mrs
Indian River Exterminators Provider Name Locked
with the impression they were the best. Wrong. I have noticed roaches. It has gotten out of hand. I looked for an exterminator as soon as I had the money available. First problem, I call the call center. We agreed on a monthly treatment plan for three months.
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.
Indian River Exterminators Provider Name Locked
! There IS such a thing as GOOGLE REVIEWS! I made him uncomfortable, he knew he was full of it.
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.
DO NOT USE THE

GUYS ESPECIALLY IF YOU ARE IN MY AREA. There is only one
Indian River Exterminators Provider Name Locked
here and the people are terrible, low quality. You cannot request another office or technician. Oh the joy.

recommended I contact Angie's list to receive a refund.
I am going to contract with

for the Termite treatment and control. Once we cleared up the confusion of what Pest Control vs. Termite Control was, they were prompt and detailed in their inspection and proposal. (my fault on the Pest vs. Termite issue).
Now, just need to know if Angie's List will reimburse my original payment for the Pest Control?

The service went fine. Two technicians came out for the job. I was not home for the entire service. They did a fine job. I was trying to prevent spiders and bugs. The service did seem to help out with the issue. I had no problem scheduling the deal.

They are excellent to work with. They will come out if you see anything. They do a thorough job. They are respectful. The product has no problems with animals. They come quarterly. The price is excellent. We have been using them for more than 10 years.

I had a lot of difficulty getting this service completed. I paid via Angie's list directly, as part of a coupon deal. Despite several calls and an email, it two 2 week to get a reply from the company to actually schedule the service.
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.

was our company for three years+…when
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.
Over the last year they would call before coming out because...More />
Indian River Exterminators Provider Name Locked
said the key was not there. This
was never a problem before
Indian River Exterminators Provider Name Locked
. We would check and sure enough the key was in
the designated spot every time. Last
fall,
Indian River Exterminators Provider Name Locked
, Office Mgr. called and said they coming the next day. I checked and sure enough the key was where
it had been for nearly two years. No one
showed up-None of the Bait stations had been moved from their settled-in spots,
and no invoice left at the door. I had started leaving an item on top that
would fall off (un-noticed by the servicer) if the bait station had been
serviced.
Eight days later the technician,
Indian River Exterminators Provider Name Locked
, arrived and serviced
the bait stations (I was home) and left the invoice on the front porch and had
charged me for two visits-eight days apart.
I refused to pay for a service that did not happen and then be charged
again eight days later…that is when
Indian River Exterminators Provider Name Locked
became unfriendly.
1.
Do not charge a customer when the technician
never came.
2.
Then double charge (8) eight days later.
3.
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
service…the service- I was not receiving.
Had I written this review last summer they would have received an A-,
from me today, F.
Letter said, “Due to scheduling demands regarding servicing
your account, while we are in the area, we are unable to continue doing your
pest control.”
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’.

They've only been to the house a few times, but we've already begun to notice a difference. Furthermore, scheduling is always easy, and the technicians are professional as well as efficient.
