BAT REMOVAL SERVICES
Wildlife bat removal specialists are qualified to identify bat entry points (bats will fit through a hole as small as the size of a dime), locate the bat colony, and determine the phase of the breeding cycle.
Removing bats from your home is important because they do represent a threat to the safety of your home, your family, and your pets. If they roost or build colonies in your home they can cause considerable property damage. They also represent a danger to people because they often carry disease.
BATS IN VIRGINIA AND MARYLAND
Bats play an important role in our natural environment. Bats are tiny, warm-blooded, mammals with the unique capability to fly. Using echolocation, bats locate little insects and can eat up to 3 times their body weight in insects each and every night.
Bats form colonies – or roost – in the wild inside of caverns and cliffs. However, in suburban areas, bats prefer colonizing inside of properties and structures. Bats like the consistent temperatures offered by walls and attics.
Bat mating season runs from May through August when bats have young “pups.” Bat colonies vary greatly in size but in nearly every case represent significant health risks to animals and humans alike.
SIGNS A BAT COLONY IS IN YOUR HOME OR ON YOUR PROPERTY
Bat guano (excrement) is the first sign that many Virginia homeowners will notice. Because bats roost in attics and under eaves, property owners may find a significant buildup of guano in these locations. If you discover guano in an area of your home be sure to promptly put on gloves and something to cover your nose and mouth.
Bat removal specialists should be called immediately if you find bat guano in your home because it can harbor histoplasmosis fungi – a significant health risk for humans.
REMOVING BAT COLONIES FROM YOUR HOME
Getting rid of bats starts with identifying where and how bats are entering the building structure. Homeowners can do this by watching for bats leaving the colony to forage for food. Usually, this occurs at dusk, about a half-hour after sunset.
Once the source of entry/exit is found, the access point may be sealed off to prevent the bats from reentering the property. It is very important to ensure that all bats have departed the building before closing it off. Temporary wire mesh can be used to cover the opening until long-lasting repairs will be made after experts are sure all of the bats are out of the home.
Another benefit of this “let them out – keep them out” method is that it allows bat removal without the homeowner or wildlife expert needing to come in contact with the critter.
Skilled wildlife bat removal experts know they must make sure no young “pups” have been left behind before permanently plugging the entry gaps.
BAT CLEAN UP
Bats significantly contaminate home attics and other environments where they colonize. Any bat removal project must include clearing out and cleaning up any contaminated material, like bat droppings or carcasses that will pose major health risks. Homeowners will need to consider repairs and remediation work, such as insulation replacement and roof repairs. Because of the nature of bat contamination, the expert services of a trained bat removal team is recommended.
BAT REMOVAL, PREVENTION, AND PROTECTING YOUR HOME
Wildlife removal companies can ensure that your home and family members are protected from bats. In addition to removing bats and repairing the damage they cause, professionals will prevent future re-entry by using things like exclusion sealant to fill up even the smallest holes and gaps leading into your property.
The Virginia Department of Health and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control recommends that if a bat is found indoors with people, it should be caught and checked for rabies. While under 1% of all bats are found to carry rabies, this is an issue that requires complete vigilance. Bat removal professionals wear very heavy leather work gloves when they must handle a bat in any way. You should too.
For your safety, you should contact your local Public Health Department, who will determine whether or not to check a bat that has entered your property for rabies, and if those at risk of contact require any type of post-exposure treatment such as rabies shots.
