"i called early in the morning and a technician came about 10. I had not noticed the yellow jackets above the garage but he did and took care of them. The wasp" nest was the one that I saw behind the end of a gutter. The technician studied it awhile and decided to spray and where to spray. Told me they could be active for several more days and to call back if there was more activity later. The bees seem to be gone!

"Rich came by, donned his beekeeper outfit and proceeded to spray the moulding and area around the window. He also put a powder that was toxic to the bees returning" to the hive. This was explained to me by him, I was not home at the time. My wife was home as he required to enter the house and check the area around the window for any indication of bees inside. The process was relatively quick, about twenty minutes. He said to give it about a week and if I saw any bees to call him. I saw a couple for the next two days but then none. He is a very friendly person and a competent professional.

You're home watching TV with the family when you hear a high-pitched chirp accompanied by the flapping of wings. Then you see the furry, winged creature circling above you.

Bats eat beetles, moths, mosquitoes and other bugs — sometimes hundreds in a single hour. Read this infographic to learn more about the benefits bats provide.

Here's how to avoid getting stung by haphazard wasp nest removal.

You know those bugs that bugged you last spring? Even when the snow hits, you might discover they never really went away.

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.

Overall with

, I slowly but surely realized that I was not getting my money's worth. Paying the premium, the price is manageable with ~$135/3mo. period. However, going through ants, spiders, stink bugs, earwigs,

beetles, and more, most of the actual exterminating was done by myself with store bought insecticides.

will come whenever you ask them to, however they don't put forth the effort to rid your home/property of the pests. Each time, we got a

spraying of the perimeters and caulking of a window occasionally (to prevent ants from coming through). There was no effort to eradicate the source, etc. We even had the one person just tell us to "wait for them to go away."

I cannot speak highly enough of our experiences with Advantage. Our technician,

H., was so friendly and helpful. I am not one to usually write reviews, but their customer service/technician definitely deserves recognition! If you're in need of pest control, I would certainly give Advantage a try- you will not be disappointed!

I selected
Elk River Exterminators Provider Name Locked
from Angie's because they were a local company, not a national franchise. They responded promptly and set two 'Have a Heart' traps at both ends of the deck. The first groundhog was captured literally within ten minutes. The second groundhog was captured later in the evening. The traps were reset each time and after no additional captures after a week I called them and they came to pick up their traps. One might think that if capturing groundhogs is this easy, why don't I do it myself? What are you going to do with the varmint once you catch it? Are you ready for an emergency room visit if the animal bites you? It is just not as

as

made it seem to be. The folks at
Elk River Exterminators Provider Name Locked
are very efficient, very professional, and perhaps the most earnestly pleasant service providers I have dealt with in two decades. If you have a pest problem, you should strongly consider using

to resolve your problem. They provide several discounts to Angie's List subscribers. They are well worth the cost regardless of the discount.

Very easy to deal with the company and schedule an appointment. The exterminator was on time and sprayed all areas of the house. He was very friendly and answered any questions I had about how the spraying worked.

Exterminated a yellow jacket hive under eves on second floor. Not an easy job. The only access was via a small second floor window onto a sloped roof. Other companies we called would either not handle bees or would not work higher than ground floor. Aardvark said they did not know if they could do the job but they would certainly take a look to see if what they could do ....no charge for visit.
Aardvark followed up with 2 phone calls to make sure the problem was eliminated. They said if we were still seeing bees they would return for a another application included in original price. Great service.

1. Tech. did 1/2 our job and left on first 2015 spraying.
2. Didn't show up on last 2 sched. days and didn't call.
This seems like an amateur operation. Reliability is abysmal.

We had a very bad hornet situation at our front door. I called on a Monday and
Elk River Exterminators Provider Name Locked
came out the next morning. They were a bit late because the previous job took longer than expected. When I called to find out where they were, the office contacted the driver and called me back within a minute to let me know the situation. They arrived, knew exactly what to do, explained everything in detail very patiently, and waited to make sure their solution was effective. Within one hour, the hornets were gone and have not returned. We would use them again and recommend their services to others.

I appreciated all the information disclosed on their website. The inspector and the technician were both timely, personable and seemed knowledgeable.

seemed a bit pricey, but we had issues at our previous house in Florida and wanted a strong start in the new house. No bugs so far. If it stays this way it will be worth the money.
