"The company was very responsive and was out by 3PM the same day (3 hours later)! Very professional and responsive. They actually saw i had 2 other problems with" carpenter ants, wasps and treated those areas as well. Very thorough and spent time around the house addressing problems. I would highly recommend and would call the company back for any future problems. Thank you
for coming out the same day! A very pleased customer

Pest Control Services

A homeowner's guide to hiring an exterminator or pest control company to rid your home of insects or rodents.

Mice and rats

A homeowner's guide to dealing with rodent infestation, including how to identify when there's a mouse problem and what to do to get rid of mice and rats.

Summer is synonymous with many things: baseball, fireworks and unfortunately, mosquitoes, which can ruin a summer barbecue faster than a rotten hamburger.

Three out of five exterminators agree: The worst infestations they've ever seen involved cockroaches.

If you have any doubts, fears or, above all, allergies, play it safe and call in the professionals to deal with wasps, says Goodson. (Photo courtesy of Angie's List Member Jack A. of Milwaukee, Wisconsin)

With proper precaution and protection, a homeowner is capable of removing a wasp nest, but don’t understand the danger posed by stinging insects.

Roaches seek warm, moist and dark places to make their homes, says Goodson. (Photo courtesy of National Pest Management Association)

Avoid that terrifying moment of discovering cockroaches skittering across your floor by following these simple tips to protect your home from infestation.

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.

Ok. They were asked to return to treat the abundant amount of mole crickets on the property. They questioned if we knew what a mole crickets looked like...they showed up a day late and did not perform the service. The main office was contacted and I was told by one of the managers that they would return and readdress the issue in the next 2 weeks. I ended their services immediately!

set the appointment up and couldn't have been more courteous and accommodating.
Portsmouth Exterminators Provider Name Locked
came out and sprayed our home for pests. He answered all of my questions - which were numerous - with patience and professionalism. He's very personable and you can tell he knows his business. Questions regarding termite control were answered in a way my husband and I could understand, not having any expertise in this area. I'd use this company again in a heart beat. Very professional and accommodating.

The tech that came to my house is courteous and professional. He asked about any concerns that I had, and informed me of what he would be doing. He also provided tips on extra steps that I could take to limit entry of pests into my home. He also scheduled my follow-up appointment before he left.

I had sawdust falling out of our roof onto the deck suggesting that something was eating the wood. I decided to contact a pest control just to have it checked.

We were having a problem with yellow jackets at our kitchen door. The yellow jackets were going in and out in an area between the stoop and plank at the foot of the entry way. They had begun nesting there. I tried eradicating them myself by using bee forming spray but that didn't work. Instead of spending a lot of money buying different products I decided to just call a professional. I contacted

, using their coupon for $195 pest control. The technician,

was very pleasant to work with. He said we should avoid the area for four hours because the bees would be rather angry. He mentioned if the bees are not gone or returned within four days to contact them and they would be back out. Its been a week and no bees.
If we have any other pest problems in the future, I will definitely contact
