Bats are nocturnal creatures, so you’ll likely spot them flying around your home at night. If there’s a colony living in your attic or walls and leaving droppings behind, it can be pretty disturbing to see them flying around your house. Plus, they carry diseases that could potentially hurt people and spread through their waste products, like bat guano.

Once you have confirmed that there is a problem with bats, it’s time for experts to help. If left untreated, these animals could cause severe damage and pose serious health risks. Although bats look harmless, their guano can be full of harmful spores. This infection can cause histoplasmosis. It is a condition that often causes flu-like symptoms and worsens over time. If you have any questions about bat control or handling of a bat problem, contact AAAC Wildlife Removal for information and assistance.

Bat Damage

Bat guano and urine can compromise the integrity of your house’s structure – It can cause wood rot and lead to structural damage. It also causes stains on walls and ceilings, which can be unsightly. Ceiling cave-ins can be caused by guano buildup, which can result in costly repairs. This is why it’s important to deal with bat guano right away; the longer you wait, the more damage they’ll do to your home.

Bat Exclusion

Bat removal Highland is best done by sealing up any entry points that bats may be using. This is known as exclusion. It ensures that bats won’t return to your home after they have been removed from their existing roosting areas. Bat exclusion is quite a thorough process that requires an inspection of the exterior and interior areas where bats might be getting in.

These entry points may include chimneys, vents, gaps under garage doors or beneath eaves, even holes as tiny as a half-inch. After these areas have been identified by our bat specialist, we will take steps for sealing them off to prevent other bats from entering your home.

Removing Bats in the Attic

Removing bats from Highland homes requires attention to detail and expertise. It’s important to know how much damage is being caused by the bats roosting in your attic and just as crucial, knowing what species of bat you’re dealing with so that you know how to safely and humanely remove them.

Our team has years of experience dealing with all sorts of wild animals, and we are fully licensed to remove bats in Highland homes. Bats should be handled by professionals who are experienced in dealing with them. They are not like other pests that can be killed or swatted away without consequences. If you’ve got a bat infestation on your hands, give AAAC Wildlife Removal a call!

This is how we handle bat exclusions:

  • We spend a great deal of time identifying bat entry points and then sealing them shut
  • We set up one-way doors so that bats can exit but not reenter the building
  • Double check that all bats are excluded and out of your home
  • We then seal all entry points with steel wool or mesh screens to prevent re-entry
  • After this, we go through and do a thorough clean-up of any guano left in the attic or walls.
  • Proceed with replacement of soiled insulation.
  • Repair of wildlife damage, both inside and outside of the home.

The first step we take is to spend a great deal of time identifying bat entry points. To prevent future infestations, it is important to ensure that there are no other entry points. The next step involves the installation of one-way doors to allow the bats out, but not back in again – this is a safe and humane method of removing the bats from your house without harming them.

We then double-check that all bats are out of your home to prevent accidental contact with any bat that may have been missed. We seal all entrance points with steel wool and mesh screens to stop bats from entering again.

Next is to do a thorough clean-up using professional-grade cleaners and sanitizers for any fecal matters left behind by the bats in your home’s floor and insulation. We will go to great lengths in order to make sure your home is free from odors or guano. Fogging with enzyme cleaner is also done after the insulation has been removed to make sure every nook and cranny is disinfected.

After the attic has been thoroughly cleaned and disinfected we can begin to look at wildlife damage. To make your house look new again, we’ll repair any damage they might have caused.

Dangers of DIY Bat Removal

Bats are known to be carriers of deadly viruses such as rabies and leptospirosis. Their guano is also toxic and can infect humans with histoplasmosis.

Histoplasmosis is the most common disease (besides rabies) associated with bats and can be fatal if contracted by people – especially those with compromised immune systems – which includes young children, elderly people, and pregnant women. One should never attempt to remove bats from on their own because of this reason.

FAQs

What is guano?

Guano refers to bat droppings or feces. These droppings are a major cause of Histoplasmosis disease which is contracted from breathing in dust that comes from dried guano and can also cause stains on ceilings if the bats have been living there for some time.

Is guano harmful?

Yes. Histoplasmosis disease is caused by breathing in dust that comes from dried bat feces and can be fatal if left untreated. Removing them by yourself is not recommended as you may contract the disease.

Is it safe for me to remove bats?

Many people will attempt to remove these creatures by themselves out of cost. This is dangerous and dangerous. Bats can transmit rabies and other zoonotic diseases (human transferable). 

The health risks associated with trying to remove them yourself are too high. Also, one must remember that one does need permits for handling these animals for any kind of relocation. We highly recommend having a professional handle the job instead of attempting it yourself as the time taken is way less than medical expenses and other costs that come with contracting these diseases from bats.
