"Service is prompt, courteous, and extremely professional. All questions are answered in an informative and professional manner.

"After receiving the quote for the work at the property, we reviewed it. The company quoted for the original squirrel removal and then added in raccoon removal too." We went from $ 250. to $1,000+ within seconds to set up a one way door for the raccoons too. There was NO PHYSICAL evidence that there were raccoons (I have been in the business for 30 years and there were no physical evidence of raccoons). All I ask for is to help get rid of the squirrels. The representative stated they would not remove the squirrels unless I agreed to have them set up the job site to remove any raccoons too. They would do both or NONE. They would not separate the two. I feel that they were pulling a fast one. Who knows maybe it being the end of the month - maybe they needed to pad their total quota for the month - maybe they needed extra money for March's rent -- they are the only ones that knows the truth. I do know that the estimated cost was way out of range for which I asked. They seemed too hungry and not very truthful for what was going on. When people start making up stories and making the cost of the services higher and higher, a RED FLAG goes up and I just don't trust them and don't want to do business with them. I moved on and found a more honest and straight forward company with pricing more in range for the work to be performed.

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.

Services have been great so far -- tech comes when scheduled, performs services, has been responsive to questions and concerns, particularly around ants in both front and backyards. I would not hesitate to recommend to friends and/or neighbors.

We are renting a house and found signs that a mouse had entered the pantry. Being so freaked out about a rodent being in the my food supply, I was willing to pay for the rodent extermination myself.

came out and conducted a thorough inspection of the house and found that in fact the one mouse we thought we had was in fact the mouse plus the an extended family. He contacted the landlord and worked with him to be able to provide us with a whole home extermination package. after only one treatment, (and 4 dead mice) we have not seen any additional signs of any rodents. I believe that an average contractor might have only done a minimal job and not gone through the hassle of working another person to get the full service needed to make the house safe. We are planning to buy our own house within the next few months and would total call

They showed up on time, did great work, and gave a comprehensive report of current areas of termite infestation. Luckily, it was very minor in some exterior structures, so there was no follow up treatment required. Overall I was very happy with the service and professionalism. I would use them again for other pest control work.

Overall, very well. The technician called us when he was on his way. When he arrived he wore the paper booties over his shoes. He was very polite and professional, We had used Guardian before. They are a good company to deal with. We will use them again.

We have been customers of this company for over 10 years and never had a complaint. They were always reliable, responsive and professional. Late last year we had a new tech that arrived at our house 2 hours before the time of our appointment then called us to see where we were. We told him we would be home by the pre-arranged appointment time. We have always been scheduled for every other month on Saturdays which is clearly stated on our invoice. The tech usually calls during the week to schedule a time. All of a sudden we were no longer getting calls.......why?? Because they are no longer working Saturdays. So I guess they just drop you if you had Saturday service instead of letting you know of their new hours. So I scheduled a weekly appointment, stayed home and met the tech. No problems but I said can we please set up a re-occurring appointment as you all don't call anymore. He said fine wrote the new appointment date on the invoice. I stayed home again - and no tech! Needless to say I shouldn't have to work this hard to get someone to come to my home. Obviously something has changed at EnviorSafe and I don't think they are very interested in servicing custormers or ones that have been loyal to the company for many years. I would not recommend this company to anyone!

to my house w/in a few days and he communicated w/the owner Nick for a super fast & affordable quote. Work completed next day. The owner even took off a fee since he didn't think it was fair with so many treatments to pay for.
