    Hi All: Has anyone had the catseye foundation barrier installed? Does it work, how long does installation take, how much $$? Thanks

    I found this hole today leading to the crawl space. I don't know how long it's been there. I'd like to make a one-way trap so the mice can get out but not back in. I was thinking of a tube made of nylon window screen. Will this work?

    I have seen signs that I might have mice in my attic. Noises in the attic are worrying & can be an indication that rodents or other wildlife may be living in your roof. Attics are ideal environments for rodents, who destroy stored items by gnawing. Can anyone suggests to me what to do if I found...

    I'm thinking about putting a course/program together for how home owners, property managers, and real estate investors (flippers) can DIY mouse-proof their home. But I'm wondering if this is something people would be interested in... Thoughts?

    I finally cut open an access panel into the ceiling to our addition. We've heard animal sounds in the walls and ceiling in that area a while ago so I thought I'd see what was there. When I dropped the drywall rectangle down, it had lots of mouse poop, just on the one little area that I...

    My recently-purchased 1949 one-story ranch has a crawl space with untreated sill plate resting on top of a somewhat wavy (in places) foundation wall. There's tar paper or something like that between the wood and concrete. Because the top of the foundation isn't perfectly flat, there are large...

    Has anyone ever heard of this being done? We appear to have mice roaming around in our attic, and climbing down into the walls following coaxial cable and electrical wiring holes. When I go to bed at night, I hear the buggers rustling around and chewing inside the walls of my second story...

    We had a chimney fire in 2010. Fortunately the two-story house with basement did not burn down, but there was much smoke and water damage trying to put out the chimney fire. The old chimney in the center of the house had to be removed and replaced, and the house structure was modified so that...

    We have a gas fireplace (the kind that turns on with a light switch) and a metal vent out the back of the house. We have had mice coming through the vent (or around the vent). We are unsure how to block access points for the mice that are also not flammable. My pest control guy said steel...

    I've used a 5-gallon bucket trap for mice in my basement for several years, and it seems to work fine. But it looks like I could use some fine-tuning for it, as I often see that the suspended can has the peanut butter licked off of it, but no "catches." Some of my questions: Can suspended...

    We have just bought a 10 year old home in Stockton, California. The inspector observed rodent droppings in the garage and in the attic. There are a lot of spider webs outside the home (a few inside) on the walls and bushes/plants. There is an apple, a peach and an orange tree in the backyard...

    My pest control guy has installed mice bait stations in my basement. I asked him what would happen if my cat would eat a dead mouse that had ingested the poison....he said nothing would happen. I find this hard to believe, judging from what i've read on all the products i've seen in stores. I...

Long story short, pests in my house, think they are rats & mice, possibly squirrels, noises at night, smells bad in house, losing sleep, concerned about health and damage to air ducts, wiring, etc, not enough room in attic...
