"Very professional, punctual, courteous. Know their stuff. Treated for silverfish (as well as inside and outside overall insect prevention) and we haven't" seen any silverfish since then. Were honest in describing limitations of treating for spiders on outside lanai.

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.

Pest Control reviews in Elk River


After twelve tears, we were interested in finding a different pest control company to do a quarterly preventive pest control program. Master's Touch responded to my message immediately and an appointment was scheduled within a few days. Their entomologist,
Elk River Exterminators Provider Name Locked
, came and worked out a suggested program. We were very impressed with his knowledge and willingness to answer our many questions. He wrote up a quarterly plan. Although the price was competitive, we chose another company - the primary reason being the only time they would be in the house would be the winter application and the other three times would be exterior applications only.
I am sure that this method is effective but we were used to both interior and exterior applications four times/year. It is difficult to chose between apples and oranges as each company uses different products and all claim that their's is the best.
- Cheryl A.

I've used
Elk River Exterminators Provider Name Locked
twice now. The first time was to remove a small wasps' nest and to spray for ants. They showed up on time, the insect treatment went quickly, and the worker had a sharp eye - he noticed some sawdust and pointed it out to me, concerned that it might be carpenter ants. We'd recently had construction done in that area, so it was leftover from that and not an issue, but it was good to know that he was looking out for other potential pest issues while spraying.
The second time, I needed a rodent abatement as part of a demolition permit. The price was fair and
Elk River Exterminators Provider Name Locked
explained everything he was doing and the full cost of the package. When the receipt was not enough proof to get the permit,
Elk River Exterminators Provider Name Locked
wrote a letter for me at no extra charge.
During the abatement, he gave me regular updates without being intrusive. When the permit and demo process took a month longer than we'd initially estimated,
Elk River Exterminators Provider Name Locked
extended our service (the bait had to stay out until the day demo began) with no hassle and no extra charge.
While I hope to never or rarely need pest control again, when I do, I'll call Eagle. They were patient, fairly priced, punctual, easy to communicate with, and their services worked.
- Michael V.

The report was done very professionally and when we had another company come out and say we had termites we contacted Bakers and he came back out to verify the other company was trying to scam us. I highly recommend
Elk River Exterminators Provider Name Locked
to do termite inspections for your home. They are very knowledgeable and professional.

We discovered the mouse problem late Friday night and called on Saturday morning. I spoke with
Elk River Exterminators Provider Name Locked
and asked if service could be proved that day since we were leaving town on Sunday. She was very friendly and said she would check and call me back in a few minutes, which she did. The technician,
Elk River Exterminators Provider Name Locked
, arrived within an hour of my 1st call - on a Saturday!
He inspected the house and showed us evidence of the mouse problem in various locations. He then did a careful inspection around the outside of the house. He proposed a service plan and offered several options for ongoing baiting and inspections. We negotiated the best plan for us and there was a $5.00 per visit reduction for Angie's list members.
He explained what he was going to do clearly and took note of specific requests we made for not treating, spraying outside areas on our deck - to protect our cats from possible exposure to the spray. All baiting was done in sealed, key locked traps that were place in areas our cats don't have access to. He was here about 1.5 hours and was careful and thorough. He put on clean disposable booties every time he came into the house.
Elk River Exterminators Provider Name Locked
was friendly and a pleasure to work with.
We signed up for a revisit every other month to load bait traps, spray and check for signs of infestation.

We just purchased this home and when we looked at it prior to purchasing, there were dead palmetto bugs and roaches evident. We are from upstate NY and have never lived in a home with any type of bugs (maybe the occasional spider in the fall), so we set up an appointment with
Elk River Exterminators Provider Name Locked
for the day we moved in.
Elk River Exterminators Provider Name Locked
arrived ahead of time and was very thorough. He answered all my questions about the roaches and ants, did an inspection, and then treated the house. We did not see any live roaches in the home but did find some dead ones for him to inspect. We also had noticed a few ants in the kitchen area so he did some extra work there.
He told us to call if we have any further problems - and believe me I will as roaches just absolutely freak me out!
I also had a question about their service prior to booking this appointment and was immediately put through to the owner,
Elk River Exterminators Provider Name Locked
, who very competently answered my question. The people in the office I have dealt with have been efficient and polite.
(PS - I had given them my incorrect address - 5901 rather than the correct 5601 - but they caught that and called me to correct it prior to the inspection.)
- Alicemae M.

Elk River Exterminators Provider Name Locked
was very nice! He was in and out in a short amount of time and even checked a second fireplace that we never use for no additional charge. His partner went up on the roof after dark to check out the exterior portion of the chimney.
Elk River Exterminators Provider Name Locked
also cleaned the chimney for an additional $30. We had him come back about a week later to install a smoke shelf to solve our issue of smoke drafting back into the house. That seemed to take care of the problem!
- Allen H.

We used Moxie for quarterly pest control treatments. They would always call before coming out and did a good job. The initial visit was thorough in that they even sprayed inside the walls to help create a perimeter boundary. I think that the initial visit was a bit higher, but generally the treatments were about $100 every three months, which I though was very reasonable. We never really experienced many issues with bugs, even when our neighbors were having issues with spiders; although, if we ever saw anything, we could call and Moxie would come out to re-treat without any additional cost. We stopped using them when we decided to sell our home and rent an apartment for a while, but I would recommend them for homeowners.

Service man did a thorough job. Spent time looking from ground to roof for any sign of insects. In summertime the service man rids the exterior of all spiders, spider webs and wasp nests.
