Rats and Squirrels use their keen sense of smell to identify territories and travel routes, and recognize other rats and squirrels, especially those of the opposite sex. Rats and Squirrels also carry fleas (soft-shelled variety), ticks, fly eggs / maggots. All rodents, especially rats, also carry numerous diseases as documented by the CDC (See Health Risks section). Our decontamination process is broken down into different levels, each appropriate for different levels of contamination and the type of rodents or bats:

Level I Decontamination

Recommended for low level of contamination only, this is the minimum level of decontamination offered. The goal is to apply our decontaminant solution (see next page) to the areas where rodents have been most active to kill the ecoparasites, neutralize the odor from feces and pheromone scent, and disinfect the area.

The solution is applied using a commercial grade portable Atomizer which dispenses liquid as a super fine mist (20 micron particles) which facilitates the most complete penetration and absorption of the solution possible. It is recommended that humans or pets are not exposed to the area treated for the first 2 hours following the treatment.

Level II Decontamination

Recommended when partial cleanup is an option for the attic insulation. Normally with rats, droppings are scattered under the insulation all over the areas they have been active. However, with Flying squirrels, and sometimes gray squirrels, it is possible to cleanup and dispose of a small section of the contaminated insulation where the majority of the droppings are found and vacuum the visible and accessible droppings.

This is followed by a insulation rake over where the tunneling and channeling activity in the confined section are concealed by raking over clean insulation to cover up those sections. This is then followed up with an atomizer treatment as described in the Level I decontamination treatment. Optionally, instead of raking over the insulation, customer can opt to blow in a thin layer of insulation over the top of the existing insulation for an additional fee. Level II decontamination in the basement / crawlspace areas would include vacuuming visible and accessible droppings, could optionally include replacing / adding moisture barrier plastic, echopowder treatment of carpets where rodents have been active.

Level III Decontamination

  1. Removal - Two high powered guano removal machines will be brought in on trailers; the tubes will be run through an upstairs window on top of sanitary plastic/paper sheeting. All current blown insulation will be completely removed, and all accessible visible droppings vacuumed.

  2. Disinfect – Using a professional grade Atomizer, a solution will be applied using a fine mist which facilitates application of the solution in even the tightest spots in the attic area. This solution will kill ecoparasites brought in by rodents and contains an industrial grade odor neutralizer deodorize to remove the pheromone smell. (See appendix for information on the solution used)

  3. Damage Inspection / Repair – Once the insulation is completely removed, we can effectively do a thorough inspection of all wires in the attic for evidence of chewing damage by the rodents. We also will inspect chewing into the heating and air duct work. Minor repairs will be made at no charge.

  4. Once the area is rodent free, new insulation will be blown in by Wilson’s Insulation, contracted through All Wildlife Control. Insulation will be blown in at R-30 standard, with options to upgrade to a higher level. Insulation blown in will be ProTEK Wool Fiberglass Insulation. This step is an option price in per customer’s request.

AWC Decontamination Formula

Includes cypermethrin based insecticide agent which is a synthetic pyrethroid class of insecticide used extensively by pest control professionals in the control of ecoparasites such as ticks, lice, and fleas often found living on species such as rats, squirrels and bats.  Note:  This solution is only mixed in for crawlspace areas, not for use in attics.


Hospital grade disinfectant cleaner with a wide spectrum of germicidal action, effective against many gram negative bacteria as well as killing pathogens as deadly as HIV-1, MRSA, VRE and other common pathogens.

Organic Odor Neutralizer: OD-210
In order to eliminate the extremely faint yet stubborn odor from pheromones what are left behind by rodents like roof rats and squirrels, All Wildlife Control uses the newest odor removal technology on the market.  Specially formulated with unique chemistry which combines counteraction, bonding (chemisorption), absorption, and inhibiting residuals to completely eliminate organic malodors and marking scents.  A complex blend of safe, biodegradable ingredients are applied using an Atomizer at 20 microns particle size, to safely and immediately eradicates, on contact, amine, mercaptan, androsterone, indole, skatole, metabolite, and phenol odors.   Unlike fragrance based formulas that cover the odor, this is a permanent solution that stops remaining bacteria-produced odors. 

Absorption – Physical penetration of the malodor substance into the inner molecular structures of the OD-210.  This process is enhanced using the Atomizer to ensure maximum penetration and absorption of the solution.

Bonding (Chemisorption) – Involves the exchange or sharing of electrons between the malodor atoms and those of the OD-210.  This is a very quick-acting technology.  However, if used alone, it will not be a permanent solution.  Depending upon the malodor, desorption of between 10-50% may take place over a period of 30 minutes to 4 hours (the odor comes back).  However in combination with Absorption and Counteraction processes, it enhances the efficiency of the OD-210.

Counteraction - A phenomenon that occurs when the proper two odors are physically in the same area, with the overall odor being reduced. This method is termed neutralization when no odor results and reodorization when a milder pleasant odor replaces the malodor. 

It works through Zwaardemaker pairs (conjugates), pairs of odorants that neutralize each other’s respective odors.  This principle works by having the counteractant in the same physical state as the malodor. 

Ingredients: Organic compounds containing monohydric, oxidized hydroxyl, condensation products or organic salts and hydroxy, natural plant oils, deionized water.

Safety: OD-210 is nontoxic, nonirritating, non-staining, non-corrosive, non-carcinogenic, nonionic, nonflammable, biodegradable.

AWC - Advanced UV-C Decontamination

There are three main methods of decontamination. Cleaning is the physical removal of the contaminants from surfaces which removes some micro-organisms (but not all) and the surface particles in which they live. This is considered to be the least effective method of decontamination. Disinfection is a process to decrease the numbers of micro-organisms to a level that reduces the risk of infection (i.e. not all micro-organisms are destroyed). Heat is the preferred method of disinfection which tends to cause damage to most surfaces. Sterilization is a method of decontamination that destroys all micro-organisms. Areas that have been sterilized are “free of germs”.

Ultraviolet Light for Decontamination

Ultraviolet light is the bandwidth of sunlight that is beyond the spectrum of visible light. It is a shorter wavelength of light and contains more energy than visible light.  Ultraviolet light is divided into three wavelengths. Ultraviolet A (UVA) is made of longer waves ranging from 315 nm to 400 nm.

UVA passes through the earth’s atmosphere and is associated with suntan or sunburn. Ultraviolet B (UVB) is composed of medium waves of light from 280 to 315 nm. Some UVB light is blocked by the atmosphere. Ultraviolet C (UVC) is the shortest wavelength of light and ranges from 200 to 280 nm. UVC from sunlight is almost entirely filtered by the atmosphere and doesn’t reach the earth’s surface.   UVC light contains the highest level of energy in the ultraviolet light spectrum. When organisms are exposed to UVC, the light energy damages the cellular DNA, damaging the genetic material that allows the cell to reproduce. Eventually, the micro-organisms die off.

Scientists have now developed special UVC light devices that can be used to decontaminate surfaces. Studies show UVC light can be effective in destroying / inactivating microorganisms such as viruses and bacteria commonly found in living areas. Unlike other types of cleaning or decontamination, there is no need for powerful (and potentially harmful) chemicals.  This technology is now approved and being used to decontamination everything from drinking water and fresh produce to hospital equipment.  All Wildlife Control, Inc. utilizes several UVC emitting devices including a commercial grade vacuum system equipped with UVC and hand held UVC emitters, killing not only 99.99% micro-organisms in contaminated areas, but also eradicating Ectoparasite such as dust mites, tics, fleas, and lice in less than 20 seconds of exposure.  Transmitting at 253.7 nm at intensity levels of 20 mW / cm2, our UVC equipment operate within the “germicidal bandwidth”.

Dust Mites:
A square yard of carpet can contain more than 100,000 dust mites.  Dust mite waste and fecal matter can create forty pounds of dust a year in a 1,500 square foot house.  Exposure to dust mites in the first year of a baby's life can trigger a lifelong allergy or even asthma.

Fleas: One female flea can lay eighteen eggs a day.  Fleas usually lay their eggs while your pet is sleeping and even if you do not see flees flea larvae and pupae can hide in your carpet to survive to maturity.

Lice: Adult lice can survive twenty hours without a blood meal and have been known to survive for up to 48 hours on an inanimate object.

Bacteria thrive in carpet, even new carpet.  Indoor levels of many bacteria can be two to five times that of outdoor bacteria and can lead to bothersome smells and even salmonella infection.

Flu Virus:  The flu is passed through the air as well as coming in contact with contaminated materials. The flu is most easily contracted by children 6 mo. - 5 yrs old and adults over 59 with pre-existing respiratory illnesses or diseases.

Mold: Once you develop a sensitivity to mold you never loose it and it is estimated that thirty percent of all people are allergic to mold.
