"I made several attempts to reach out to them to schedule the appointment. I pre-paid for the service and included the suggested dates and timeframe and never heard" from anyone. The ants have all now died, so the window for them to come out and do the service has closed.

"In August 2013 I received notification through the community's management company that
had found "evidence of termites" in" my crawlspace. Like many homeowners in my community, I have an encapsulated or sealed crawlspace. The management co. arranged for
to send an exterminator to treat for termites. Just prior to the treatment date, I received a 3-sentence waiver form from
, exonerating them of any and all liability at my home. The management co. informed me that
would not complete the job unless the waiver was signed, and the
insisted my crawlspace by treated by their vendor,
. I felt coerced to sign the waiver, but did.
sent an exterminator to treat for the termites. Immediately after the termite treatment, my electric bills soared. An energy audit revealed that the exterminator had ripped the foam board insulation off of one 26 foot wall and approximately 1/2 of a 47 foot wall in the crawlspace. The splintered pieces of foam board were thrown on the crawlspace floor and ripped the moisture
on the floor. And the trash was left there for me to clean up. To clean-up and dispose of the splintered foam board insulation and restore my crawlspace environment, including replacing the torn moisture
, was a cost of approximately $4100. In late August 2014
again inspected for termites and no evidence of termite tubes was discovered. However, 5 1/2 months later another exterminator found evidence of "mature termite tubes" in the crawlspace. Although I have met with a manager of
about my crawlspace, only after I insisted and only after the meeting was arranged with and through the management company and the board of directors, they accept no responsibility for the work done by their employees, nor do they offer any explanation for what you see below -- falling back on the waiver.

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.

It took two trips. After the first treatment, the ants increased about ten-fold and the service provider suggested that he did not warranty the work. However he did come back the next day without charge and treated some more. It took about a week to be rid of all the ants. I thought the problem could have been solved more quickly.

Let me just say - I love Clear Defense! We owned a small home in
Raleigh Exterminators Provider Name Locked
and had roaches constantly running in and out of the house. I couldn't take it anymore so i decided to try out clear defense. With their service- we never had any problems again- not only did we stop seeing roaches, but spiders and sliver fish and all other things disappeared. We sold that home and clear defense was so easy to work with transferring our service to our new home that we purchased. Not only did they assist us with treatment in selling our house, but they were easy to work with while waiting till we found our new home.

After recommendations from their neighbour, went to

's website. I used their online contact form like they suggested. A month+ now and I've had no contact from them (and there's nothing in my spam box). Maybe they do a good job, and maybe I could give them a second

The technician was very friendly. He explained how everything would work with my quarterly treatment. He stated he thought he was only coming out here to spray and sign me up for quarterly service. I told him I had requested a quote from the office, when I had originally called, and they told me they were sending him. He said his direction was that I was signing up for the quarterly service and he did not realize that I had not been told how the service works. He proceeded to explain the quarterly service and discussed what all was included. He ended up spraying the entire house and was very happy to do so. I asked him about termite protection and he said that he would have to call his boss. After making the phone call he spoke with me and told me that his boss would call me back within the week and set up and appointment, but he was not involved with the termite side of things and the boss had to come do the estimate. Long story short, I never heard from the boss for the termite inspection/treatment.
It appears to me that the front office didn't quite have everything together. 1) I simply requested a price quote for quarterly service and instead received a technician who was told I was signing up for service. 2) I'm writing this review on

7th (almost a month after the service was performed) and have yet to hear about my termite inspection/treatment. I decided to give them a C in responsiveness because for the quarterly treatment they were very quick to get a tech to my house (within a week). But do to lack of communication/understanding I have yet to hear anything about termite control.

Was told that the treatment would last about 3 weeks. Within less than a week had ants infestation again. Called for follow up including e-mail about what was done and quote, but to date no email. Spoke to two persons who took my information, but no follow up correspondence.
Quite frankly I strongly believe this to be a rip off. Chose them due to great reviews, but I have been profoundly disappointed. Problem has continued to persist, except that I am devoid of $169.
Will not recommend.
