Tips for getting rid of earwigs, in case they come inside as the temperature drops. You may see these pincher bugs in your home basement, bathrooms or kitchen.
The quickest and most effective method of pest control? It's not at the hardware store. How much does it cost to hire an exterminator to eliminate pests?
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,

Bait boxes were placed in utility room in basement and in garage. I have had on instances of mice since that time.
P.S. I should mention that I do not think I found
We had idea where the critters were coming from, and they confirmed this, and checked other areas to see if the garage and separate crawlspace were inhabited. (Later, I realized that they didn't check the attic....) ...More /> Some entry spots were located, and filled with a foam sealant. I was later told that unfortunately, they would eventually chew through this, and indeed had made it though one spot by the next visit. ( One of the smaller entry ways has been nibbled at, but it's still maintaining a functional blockage so far, a couple of months later)
The set up: They call you back to set the next appointment, or you can call them, if you need an appointment sooner. Well, OK-- but just LOTS of extra steps for everyone, yes?
I would have preferred to set up the next visit with the service person while they were here at the house. Or perhaps set up all the visits with a single phone call, then called to change if needed.
So at the last visit in the contract, I still had a hole in the foam, rats are still coming in and being trapped and removed. Problem not really solved---but admittedly, there was a **sizable hole** that will need concrete work to fill.
Still, I would have preferred them refer me to someone who could do that job from the very start, or give me the option to pay extra and have them subcontract it to someone right then. At the last visit,they were able to recommend someone to do a full crawlspace cleanup/'sealing'. I'm getting a quote, but looking for bids as well.
Lesson learned: confirm that the entry spots will be well and truly sealed before spending time, money and effort on repeated trapping.
