"Great pest control service and everyone is very helpful and polite! We have had them out twice now and it has made a big difference in the amount of insects around" the house. They are set to come out ever three months, but if we need them sooner we can call and they will come back asap. Although the service include the inside I asked them to just spray around the outside of the house and that has done well enough to keep the pests down and out. Some time ago we had another big name company come out and they

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.

Nothing was caught and no money was refunded to us. I realize that we signed the contract/invoice that was saying that the result isn't guarantied, but to take twice $630 for leaving 4 traps in our attic and checking them once per day, for 10 minutes, 5 times per week is a lot of money if the result is zero. It comes out as $126 per 10 minutes visit.
After watching on Internet and discussing the matter with a wild life catching specialized company, it appears to me that
Staunton Exterminators Provider Name Locked
is incompetent in catching flying squirrels. The trap actually should be set outside of attic, next to entrance hole made by the squirrels, not inside of the attic.
My appeal to the company for partial refund of the fee on the basis of a good/fair customers treatment didn't produce the result either. The conclusion - DO NOT hire this company for catching flying squirrels that you discovered in your attic. The outcome would be not to your benefit.

I had initially set an appointment over email for last week with company. They never showed during the time frame. I called the company and spoke to the scheduler who apologized for a scheduling mistake.
Today, February 26th,

ants. He also said that I'm covered under a 30 warranty. He'll be back out to the house to respray and bait any trails we find.
Overall, I'm pleased with this company, other than the scheduling error.

Sullivan was very professional and gave me an excellent proposal. We didn't use his service because of reasons unrelated to the proposal or inspection and will definitely keep him on our list for any future pest control needs. I highly recommend consulting

The company called the next day after I bought the service from Angie's List to schedule. They had availability for my chosen date, and then made a followup call the day before to give me a 2 hour window for when they would arrive. The gentleman showed up right at the beginning of the window and was very friendly and knowledgeable. He explained everything that would happen and then did his work. He left us with some "bait plates" for future use and let us know what to expect after he left. So far we are very happy with this company - they are prompt and professional. They also back up their work and will come back and re-treat if the ants return.

arrived around 10:15 am or so and promptly let us know that he was there to spray. He asked if he had any special bug problems and then did his work. At the end of his spraying, he again let us know he was finished with the work and asked if we had another needs and then taught me how to sign for the service on the computer screen which is always an experience. The people who spray for bugs for Preventive are highly professional and very knowledgabel about bugs and sprays used. In my experience, customer service has always been top notch with the Bug Spray Service Providers from

It is they DIDN'T do. I have used this company for a year and it has been a series of errors, miscommunications, and unresponsiveness; they are the MOST DISORGANIZED business I have ever known. Their office staff is NOT helpful and no one seems to know anything...I have questioned service I was charged for (my gate was locked, how they did the work is impossible) and they will hound you for payment but not for help needed. I would NOT recommend this business; a lot of lip service and lack of follow through.
