Humane Bat Control Services
Many people consider bats the winged spawn of Satan, and would rather have them dead than in their backyard flying around eating thousands of mosquitoes; which, by the way carry more diseases than bats.
The fact that bats are beneficial in the environment outside the home, but dangerous on the inside, makes proper bat control methods particularly important. Bat problems are one of our favorite wildlife issues to deal with and we like to approach the concept of bat control with humane bat conservation in mind. Getting rid of bats doesn't have to be cruel. We know how to humanely move them from the inside of your property to the outside where they belong - and solve your bat problems for good.
Bat Control Considerations
There are several signs that might indicate a bat problem including guano (bat feces) on the deck or ground outside your home, thumping noises in the attic, grease marks at potential entry points, or simply sighting the bats entering or exiting your structure.
Bat control can be a complex process affected by many factors including when they were discovered, breeding and feeding habits, roosting, hibernation and migration, and of course, these are affected by what region you live in and what types of bats you have.
In other words, if you've seen bats in your home, call a professional and take vital safety actions now, regardless of the time of year.
In our Bat removal section we go into detail about the removal process, including attic eviction, exclusion and proofing. We also take a closer look at seasonal considerations, and the reasons for those restrictions.
Disease, Handling & Safety Concerns
