Question DetailsAsked on 10/1/2014

Exterminator failed to find mice entry point. Best person to hire who will actually take care of problem?

I have a 31 year old house on a slab foundation. About 2 months ago I heard weird noises in the kitchen and saw a little grey mouse run across the kitchen floor. I found an exterminator on Angie's List and they set out bait traps. The bait trap under my dishwasher which is near the corner of two exterior walls is the only trap that has ever been touched. They've been out multiple times to re-bait the trap. The exterminator inspected the outside of my house two times and can't find a hole for them to get in.

I felt like I was on my own so I removed the dishwisher which is where the activity was. I set up some glue traps and within a few hours a mouse got stuck and managed to drag the trap back towards the exterior wall corner and got away.

I know I want to block them from getting in from the OUTSIDE but who can I call? With no obvious holes I don't know what to do besides take the siding off at that exterior corner. But if I hire a siding guy they won't care/know about mice...
