Carpenter ants are important decomposers of forest trees, not feeding on the wood but burrowing within it to nest and feed on insects, plants and fruit juices. However, the ants can move from their native woods to the structures of our homes, where they invade the kitchen, pantry and interior rooms looking for water and human or pet food. Although they are slow to cause harm, they can seriously damage weathered or neglected structures.

Mann vs Pest Pest Control San Marcos
If you've had animals living in your attic, then you've got everything they've left behind in your attic. This includes nesting material and debris that they've brought in, food they've hoarded, and most of all, the excrement, urine, hair, and body oils that they leave behind. Most wild animals are not clean. Raccoons will not only tear up your ducts and rip off your insulation paper, but they'll often leave big mounds of droppings.
Rodents such as rats and squirrels can produce up to 40 droppings a day, and scatter the pellets all throughout your attic. And all of these animals of course urinate as well.
Mann vs Pest Pest Control San Marcos will remove the animals from your attic and seal off all of the entry points, then clean the attic. We will remove all of the debris and the heavily soiled insulation, removing all of the large droppings by hand and vacuuming up the small droppings, and by spraying the attic with a special enzyme-based biological cleaner that makes use of non-pathogenic bacteria and enzymes to break down and digest any and all organic and biological waste, and disintegrate it and render it inert. This eliminates the biohazard in your attic, destroys the smell, and eliminates the odors that can attract new animals to your home. Mann vs Pest Pest Control San Marcosviews cleanup a very important part of the wildlife control process - both for prevention and your health.
Vacuum the Droppings: When and where possible, we vacuum up the droppings that the animals have left behind. This usually applies to the smaller droppings, such as those left behind by rats, squirrels, bats, and birds. These smaller animals have high metabolisms, and they produce dozens of droppings each day. Given the high numbers or rats or bats that can live in an attic, these droppings can really accumulate. We then vacuum up the large quantities of droppings. If the small droppings are within loose-fill (blown-in) insulation, then they cannot be vacuumed. In this case, the insulation should be replaced, or the cleaner will destroy and disintegrate the remaining droppings.
Removal of Animal Waste: If you've had a large animal in the attic, most commonly a raccoon or an opossum, then the large droppings should be removed by hand. Animal waste on this scale really causes an odor problem. It's also a health risk - raccoon droppings are known to sometimes contain raccoon roundworm, the eggs of which humans can breathe in and become infected by. Many diseases are transmitted via animal waste, such as Campylobacter infections, leptospira infections, and salmonella infections.
Attic Fogging: The animals that live in your attic run through the insulation, often tunneling under it, they run on the wooden beams, the pipes, the wires, everything. They often leave behind their droppings and urine everywhere, not to mention the greases and oils from their fur. Most animals actually scent mark their territory - your attic. Rats are notorious for leaving behind urine and pheromone scent to communicate with other rats. Pest Control San Marcos BioShield fogging destroys all of these biological agents. We not only eliminate the biohazard associated with wild animal feces and urine, but we destroy the odor that serves as a chemical signal to other animals. The BioShield agent is not harmful to people or pets, nor does it cause any damage to any part of the attic - insulation, wooden beams, wires, and so on are safe, and cleaned.
