Bats

Bats are an unsanitary nuisance wildlife in a category all their own. They create offensive, unhealthy, odors due to their droppings and bats are one of the top rabies carriers in our area. Fortunately for you, bat removal is our specialty! We are equipped to provide you with a professional, permanent, non-chemical, solution to your bat infestation problem and we will guarantee it in writing. Typically, the following steps are included in the bat removal process as a part of our standard service contract:

  • We clean-out any bat droppings (guano) and contaminated insulation in your attic space. Then we sanitize these areas to help prevent air borne mold spores that are created from dried up guano, and replace the insulation as needed. These mold spores can cause human respiratory issues as noted under the safety concerns link.
  • We perform repairs to the areas that do not have bats entering, such as screening vents, caulking gaps, installing chimney caps, etc.
  • We will then install exit without re-entry devices that will safely remove the bats from the structure without harming the bats.
  • Lastly, we return in about a week, after all the bats are out, and remove these devices. Then we seal any remaining holes and re-clean/sanitize any remaining area(s) that require it.

If you have had bats in your house, and then you think you see bed bugs, don’t be alarmed! Bat bugs are found in houses and buildings that harbor bats. So the infestations in human dwellings are usually introduced by bats carrying the bugs on their skinĀ and usually remain in close proximity to the roosting locations of bats (attics, chimneys, etc.) but explore the rest of the building if the bats leave or are eliminated. In some cases, they move into harborages that are more typical of bedbugs, such as mattresses and bed frames. Once the bats are gone, the bed bugs will follow.
