"We have used
Control for several years after trying a couple of other companies. They are locally owned and all the technicians we have" met are very professional. We are on a bi-monthly contract, but if we ever need additional service between scheduled visits they respond immediately. Since we started using Patriot we have not had any insect or rodent infestations, as we sometimes did with the other companies. We live in Highland Pines, where there is every kind of pest imaginable, and they keep things under control for us.

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.

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.

The representative was very knowledgeable and was very professional. He gave great customer service, he was very timely, and we have not seen any spiders or bugs since he left. My ant beds near the house are even gone!!! I subscribed to the quarterly service, and will definitely continue to use their services. Thanks, D.

happy to give advice about how to mitigate the problem in the future and
has a 30 day guarantee. He is very hassle free, professional, and
personable. Happy to help as opposed to the big box pest companies (like

It was a long involved process - each day they set out traps trying to catch the mother so they could safely remove the babies from the basement. They caught five
Elk River Exterminators Provider Name Locked
. After a few weeks the tech brought an assistant with him to check out the vent. The mother was not there so they safely removed the four babies. I heard later in the day that a neighbor had hit and killed a raccoon the night before and my assumption is that is was the mother. Even after the babies were removed they set traps for 3 days to try and catch the mother but were unsuccessful - most likely because she had been killed. ( Will never know for sure because no one stopped to check if the raccoon that was hit was a nursing mother !!)
They close the traps on weekends but were here every weekday for over 3 weeks. I have since had the chimney capped so hopefully will not need their help again - if I do, for any reason, I would use them again.

In November
Elk River Exterminators Provider Name Locked
and
Elk River Exterminators Provider Name Locked
showed and did the inspection. Within a couple days I had a complete report with a recommendation for fixes and a cost estimate. I scheduled the remediation and they actually were able to show up a day earlier and complete all work in two and a half days. They did some woodwork which was excellent quality carpentry and they did a very good job matching paint colors. They left my property clean and orderly. I don't anticipate any need to have them return for a few years, but I would not hesitate to use them again or refer them to others. If Angie's List had an A plus category, I would rate them as such.

It went exceptional.
Elk River Exterminators Provider Name Locked
who was our Provider was a professional from the moment he walked in, he saw we still had clients and removed his belt with his tools so that he could be discreet. He then proceeded to take a tour of our space checking the walls, & moving equiptment all while being very discreet. He then put down whatever he needed to in order to make sure every area that needed it was fully secured. He also covered a couple of holes that he thought were too big and could be dangerous with something temporary and gave us advice on how to replace it with something permanent. Overall I found him to be very friendly, professional, and incredibly helpful. They will be handling any future issues we might have.

arrived exactly when they said they would. Walked me all over the house showing me problem areas/evidence of the critters. They laid poison stations and then instructed me to not throw them away because if I have an issue again, they come refill them for half price. They were extremely patient with my many questions and made sure I knew exactly how to proceed. Extremely happy and will definitely use again if necessary. (Though I hope that it's not...)
