Chicago Rat Removal Tip: The company you recommend on your website, Chicago Rat Removal, referred me to Mighty Wildlife Removal because I called about mice under the hood of my car.
Actually, my problem is both my car and my walk-in attic. I think I have been given a lot of misinformation about mice by companies that deal with this.
First, I am trying to determine how they are getting into my walk-in attic. I have been told that they are coming from my crawl space, without anyone even looking in my crawl space to see if there are signs of them. Plus I have had my crawl space sealed. I know of space behind an outdoor electrical outlet around siding that seems more likely to me.
I have had two companies look at the situation. The first put traps in the attic, the walk-in attic and crawl space. I haven't seen anymore signs of mice in the walk-in attic and hadn't really heard them in the attic. The exterminator who put the trap in the attic did not report signs of mice up there.
At my request, the second company representative looked around to determine entry points. He looked around on the roof and found one spot that might allow squirrels in but he didn't think mice would get in that way. He didn't look in the crawl space or anywhere else, like around the siding, etc. He did look in the walk-in attic. Two days before he came, I was told to put a paper plate with peanut butter in the walk-in attic. No peanut butter was eaten.
I discovered the mice when I went to get my Christmas decorations out. Something had eaten the paper top of a DampRid bucket and pulled some of the contents out. I moved a few things and found a few droppings. Other dry droppings were in some Christmas items.
I have read that the first order of business is to SEAL, and neither company has done anything or recommended anything in that regard. The first company was Tander Exterminating and the second was Mighty Wildlife Removal.
Second, I had and may still have mice getting under the hood of my brand new car. Toyota found this problem when the car malfunctioned due to their presence. Mighty Wildlife Removal set a trap under the hood, using duct tape to hold it in place. The peanut butter like stuff was pulled off to the side of the trap but no mouse was caught. I tripped the trap three days later, first trying to trip it by putting a stick directly on the bait and pushing as hard as I could. Nothing happened. I had to trip it by touching the arm. This was a regular wood Victor trap. Alexander Exterminating rep told me mice don't eat acorns so it was probably a squirrel under the hood. Mighty said mice do eat acorns, and the droppings were mice size.
I live in a two-story townhouse in Chicago IL, and have not heard of other people in our townhouse community having any of these problems, and I have talked to quite a few people about this.
We used to have outdoor cats that kept things under control. We don't have them anymore. I have lived in this house for 23 years and this is the first time i have had problems with mice.
You offered your email address, so I am taking you up on the offer. I need to get correct information and be sure I am getting a company that can help. I am not sure the mice are still there in the house or car; however, if we haven't sealed where they got in the house, they will be back, won't they? And the car is open to their entry at any point. There is no sealing under the hood, is there? Will the company you recommend do more and better than the companies I have tried so far? As i said, ProPest Wildlife Removal doesn't do cars.
