" was my first pest control technician and he seemed to do the most thorough job. He sprayed around the perimeter and sprayed the doorways" and window seals in the house. At the time, I thought he did a good job of sealing bugs out. 2 weeks later, we are still seeing bugs. The company called to see if I was satisfied, this was nice, as I did not know if a follow-up was allotted. I informed them that I am still seeing bugs and they sent out . came, the first time, and re-sprayed the windows seals in the house and put down powder around the perimeter (vs. spraying). I thought it would be better this time, but no, I was told to wait a week to let the bugs die or figure out a way out...2/3 weeks later, the same. We are seeing bugs in more places in the house than we did when we first started with Bulwark. I called one more time and he sent me to the scheduler (not sure why he suggested that I call him first if he was going to send me to the front office), and we scheduled some time for him to come out. came out and put some bait traps down (sticky pads with food for bugs to get stuck to on and die. looked around and sprayed fans in the bathrooms. I had to fight him to re-apply powder and spray around the perimeter, on spraying the master bathroom because the fan was higher than the others were. Almost a week later, the bugs are still popping up left and right. At least we aren't seeing spiders anymore AND maybe it was the recent rain driving them into the house BUT shouldn't the perimeter protection prevent that? Regardless, I am glad I did not do the annual package. I would have been HIGHLY displeased if signed up for the annual contract and received this type of level of "pest control'. Maybe I shouldn't have used Angie's List Deal...I know some companies scale down on the service for taking a a Angie's List deal v. using their non-discounted services. Oh well, time to look for another exterminator.

"Purchased this in 2014 and followed up with this again to ensure no new problems. Two technicians arrived promptly and were very professional and a pleasure to have" in the house. They wore foot slip covers while inside and performed the rodent work. Additionally, I was told about some possible problems that we might want to address, but the info was given in a way that I appreciated, not as a hard up sell. Everything went fine and I recommend .

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.

Almost everyone with the company provides excellent service. We have had one technician who lacks professionalism and left a bit of a mess with the bait granules left to the bugs. However, this is only one technician. All others who have performed service have been amazing!

Paid for the service on Angies and gave choice of dates. But no one responded until my doorbell rang. They had sent a person to spray around my house and no one had called to let me know which day the person would be coming by. Lucky for me i was home at our old house, and the service was required at the place we were moving into. So basically if i ...More were not home the person would have probably sprayed around my old place and left.
The service person himself was really nice, he acknowledged the goof up and asked me for the address to the new place which was close by. He did his job professionally and left.

They came out when they said they would. Very friendly and easy to deal with. The only thing that i noticed is that the treatment was not as good as some other treatments i have had in the past i never did take them up on the warranty and have them come back out and respray (my fault). Dusting worked much better for me than this service.

The good news - the person who answered the phone (female) was very responsive and helpful. She said a technician would be out the same day, which was great, and would call me with 30 minutes notice before he arrived. I was very happy that they could provide someone the same day.
The bad news - the technician did not call before coming and showed ...More up while I was engaged with another service provider on a separate matter. I wish he had called as promised so I could have avoided this conflict.
My original theory was that the animal was in the basement so the technician donned overalls and went down to investigate. He said he could not find anything and that it did not smell in the basement, so it was probably in a wall somewhere and prepared to leave. He was covered in mud from the crawlspace and walked all through my house leaving muddy footprints as he went. Most technicians dealing with crawlspaces know to bring disposable footies for when they re-enter the house. So I was frustrated that I now had mud to scrub out of the rugs in 3 rooms. I suggested we check the attic before he went and he said that there was a low likelihood of it being in the attic. I insisted that we check anyway. Sure enough, as soon as we pulled down the attic stairs, the smell was very strong. We both went up there and began looking around. Although it was clearly somewhere very close judging by the smell, he did not find it and left, with my check for $100.
The smell in the house was overwhelming so I called another company. They sent someone out and he literally found it in 10 seconds - literally. 10 seconds. This was clearly a case of the technician not having sufficient experience for the job. The second company did several things differently:
1. they immediately asked where in the house I first noticed the smell. They then investigated that area themselves and noted where it was in relation to the attic layout.
2. they knew from experience that animals often get in near the exhaust fan, which was also near the origin of the smell, so they checked that area first. The animal was in plain sight, on top of the insulation, right beside the exhaust fan. They were incredulous that someone else didn't find it.
I do not enjoy writing negative reviews but I am very disappointed in this experience. $100 is significant to me and in this case it was for nothing. If the technicians are not trained and experienced in locating dead animals in homes, that should not be a service the company advertises or provides.

Our service from Control was VERY professional. I was impressed with their attitude during every visit and they were very thorough being sure to spend extra time spraying "problem areas" (under decks, in trees, bushes, tec.). We would definitely use them next summer!

They sprayed on the scheduled date, but they were not very thorough. They spent on average 15 minutes on a half acre yard. Other companies spent around 30-45minutes. I noticed other companies sprayed extra heavy under the decks, up in the trees, and in bushes. This company was very hasty and as a result we saw mosquito's again in just a week ...More after treatment (after not seeing them all summer with other companies). I put "good customer service" because when i called to complain, they sent a tech back out to spray again. However, it didn't make much difference and we continued to have mosquito's until the season was over.
