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.

Tech get's to my house, all of a sudden it is now termites and he is 1000% sure of this. They will have to send out there SPECIAL team (what a joke) Mind you it cost 3 times as much to treat termites.
I have since had to companies confirm that it is NOT termites and is powder post beetles

We bought "special" offered on Angies list.
After contacting them, they called back a few days later.
They came to treat our house, were real nice, while at our home.
Bugs came back a few days later, so my wife called back again.
They never returned our second call.
Grades would have been lower, but the person who came to our house
was so kind and knowledgeable…I wonder if they are just too busy at this point
and may not have enough people to handle the demand?

Very well told him what I wanted done or expected and went right to work! Had new addition to do with a storm shelter underneath. Told him I wanted it sprayed good for spiders because of the dirt and concrete. Got flashlight and went done to do it because my lights weren't hooked up yet. Very nice guy!

After a little confusion with scheduling, they were very helpful in getting me rescheduled. They were prompt, professional and did an excellent job. I will definitely use them again.

The owner showed up precisely on time for both visits and did an excellent job. He was very professional, efficient and delivered great value. We are very pleased to highly recommend him to others.

They quit calling to schedule a time to come over. Even after repeated requests they quit calling. This means they were not treating the inside of our home because we were always at work. Then they left the paperwork showing they had been here on the wrong door and did not latch the storm door when finished. A thunderstorm came up and the wind blew the door open and back, ruining the door. They made it right with us, but nothing else changed. We now have NC Pest Control and they are great! I have given a review for them already.

Called in advance and was punctual. Did work and asked about any issues from past treatments. We did recall them once and they came out the next day. Have a lot of foliage and trees, but almost no bugs of any kind. Highly recommend them.

I have to agree with a previous post: I had no complaints with this company when it was foothills pest control.
But after
Wilmington Exterminators Provider Name Locked
bought them out and I want them to spray for bugs, they want you to sign a contract, an extremely overpriced contract.
I had them come out twice a year for around 80.00$ each time and now if i do not sign a contract its 3 times the price each time.
Can you say rip off!
I don't want to sign a contract when I do not need to have them out every here every month They just care about the bottom line.
