A homeowner's guide to hiring an exterminator or pest control company to rid your home of insects or rodents.

Summer is synonymous with many things: baseball, fireworks and unfortunately, mosquitoes, which can ruin a summer barbecue faster than a rotten hamburger.

Three out of five exterminators agree: The worst infestations they've ever seen involved cockroaches.

If you have any doubts, fears or, above all, allergies, play it safe and call in the professionals to deal with wasps, says Goodson. (Photo courtesy of Angie's List Member Jack A. of Milwaukee, Wisconsin)

With proper precaution and protection, a homeowner is capable of removing a wasp nest, but don’t understand the danger posed by stinging insects.

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.

The guys they send out are extremely professional and make sure that you are completely satisfied. If not, they will return, but we have never had to request that they do. we've been using them for about 3 years now.

My review is pretty general since
Holdrege Exterminators Provider Name Locked
has been providing pest treatment service to us for a few years now. He is always courteous and professional during his visits and we rarely see any pests since we hired him. He is also very flexible with hours of visits and will work with you on your pest control needs. He is very good at providing options.

Have had three visits (every two months) so far. Have had them out for a repeat visit two times. They always come and are courteous. I do notice that so far they seem to come in the last 15-30 minutes of the three hour appointment window. Not a problem if they are doing the exterior, but on the two repeat visits have had to take off from work for a half day.
Perhaps just starting up it takes several visits to finally get rid of all my scorpion, spider and ant visitors... time will tell.

arrived and quickly inspected my home. He then explained what he saw and what he needed to do. He worked very thoroughly throughout my home. He was very professional and knowledgeable. He told me that another treatment should be given, and I should call to make another appointment.

NOthing about this service call has gone smooth. They have the worse customer service ever. They miss appointments and especially when called for a retreat - like their ad promises.... they don't answer the phone.. been on hole for 45 minutes..!!!
Their Ad says they will come that day... I called in the am to schedule and they said they could come at 7pm.. When it got close to 7, the technician called and said he couldn't make it. When treatment was done, the fleas were still present. Scheduled a retreat... they were a NO SHOW... NO CALL.. UNACCEPTABLE. I took off work to meet them for treatment. When I called after the appointment time had passed, I was put on hold for 45 minutes.....I finally hung up. Do NOT USE!

It was a pretty big Fail because they did not show up and did not call to reschedule or address the missed appointment. I was particularly disappointed because I had a really nice conversation with the sales person. He said that it was bug season so their schedule was full, but they could get to me in about 10 days. I said that was fine, made my appointment for 8am on a Wednesday and set about waiting for my turn. I was out of town the day of the service so I asked my Mother to be my representative. She waited from 8am to 2pm and they never showed or called. My Mom called them around 10:30 and the dispatcher said the Technician was on his way. She is still waiting.
I understand that mixups happen so I called and left a voicemail and also sent an email explaining what happened and asking for an escalated reschedule, but to this day the company has not responded. I think this is extremely poor customer service. It is unfortunate because I do not mind paying for customer service and was considering signing up for a quarterly contract, but now I will be pursuing another contractor.

Arrived on time. Very polite and professional. Took time to explain the work that was being performed. Very thorough treatment both in and outside the house. Would hire again and recommend to family and co-workers.
