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,

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.

baited throughout the house for mice as part of the Big Deal. Billed separately, they also cleaned up mouse droppings from a bad infestation from a previously vacant home to get it ready for us to move-in. I had to call the technician back in from his van to point out several areas where there were still droppings even after his "cleaning."
Baiting seemed very thorough. The cleanup, not so much.

It went well. When
Yerington Exterminators Provider Name Locked
discovered that the bees were actually "Robber" honey bees, we decided to close the opening the bees were using to enter and exit the column and repair the stucco. He spent a couple of hours doing this and since there really was no hive was not going to charge me for his service. I paid him $100 anyway because of all the time it took to nail down what was going on. His stucco guy finished up the repairs the next day and did a lot of other stucco touch up on our house for a good price also.

It went well and I would use them again. They are professional and very responsive and if you have any issues they'll come back out. I didn't have any problems with them, they always returned my phone calls. When I called them they were very nice, family oriented and they were really competitive. They offer ten year warranty where they'll come out for ten years and no charge.

Purchased to get rid of the spiders. It has been 2 weeks since the technician treated both inside and outside of the house and so far no more spiders seen in the house. Very pleased at this time.

As we found out afterwards, we were to have watered the lawn before and after applications, to help the 'product' sink down to
the roots of the areas affected by multiple moles.
No such directions were ever given orally or in writing. After the 3-4th application (over a period of 8 week I think), some of the activity stopped, but returned here and there, and then full force in a few weeks. I have heard moles are hard to get rid of, but
I think the lack of full directions could have given this lawn much better results.
