San Marcos Rodent Control
Mice and rats will try to enter practically any type of home or business in San Marcos. They’ll crawl under roof shingles, slip through small cracks, and otherwise seek out spaces to nest, feed, and reproduce.
When rodents take up residence, they tend to stay out of sight. You’ll need to look for indirect signs, such as:
- Scratches along walls, baseboards, and in other out-of-the-way locations
- Chew marks on cables and cords
- Brown, grain-shaped droppings
Once rodents find a cozy place to live, they typically won’t leave on their own. Instead, they’ll nest and multiply. For example, a female house mouse is fertile at just six weeks and can birth around 40 offspring per year.
Even a few mice can cause significant problems, and a large rodent infestation can end up downright catastrophic if left untreated. Rodents chew through walls, food packaging, electrical wires, and much more. They can also spread diseases, including Hantavirus, rat-bite fever, and salmonella.
How We Can Help
Attempting to remove mice yourself is difficult. While traps or poison bait might kill some mice, these methods are unlikely to stop the infestation permanently.
Instead, our San Marcos rat control experts can identify the source of the problem and develop targeted strategies designed for maximum effectiveness. We’re experts in a wide range of extermination methods, including traps, dust, bait, and other techniques. Our trained techs will work with you to identify the best option for your exact situation.
We not only remove the mice you have, but we also identify and block their entry points to prevent other mice from entering later. Common prevention strategies include:
- Adding screens to all exterior openings, such as pipes and drains
- Clearing away any debris from inside the house and near the exterior
- Placing a tight cover over any outdoor grills
If rodents are prevalent in the wild around your location, we usually recommend the application of exterior products, such as dust or spray, every few months.
San Marcos Termite Control
Termites are often called silent destroyers. They’re difficult to discover, but they can cause a huge amount of structural damage in a relatively short time.
These tiny terrors can digest cellulose, a material found in all types of wood and paper products. They devour doorways, trim, studs, and framing materials of all types.
California has three different types of termites:
- Drywood termites
- Dampwood termites
- Subterranean termites
Identifying termites is often tricky. They’re not only small, but they tend to stay out of sight. You’ll want to watch for blistering wood or paint, wing parts, droppings, and mud tubes or mounds near the premises.
How We Can Help
Because termites are so elusive, your best option is hiring San Marcos pest control professionals. Our termite-eradication experts will thoroughly examine your location to determine what type of termites have infested, where they’re located, and what damage they’re causing.
Then, we’ll develop a custom strategy based on your needs, using either chemical or non-chemical methods. Fumigation is often an effective solution, and we make the process easy by using Vikane, a fumigant that leaves behind no harmful residue.
