Bat Removal from Attics in Salt Lake City, Utah

We provide humane and effective bat removal services to keep homes free of diseases and damage from these creatures. For many homeowners, the best solution is to perform an exclusion (or “bat-proofing”) which involves sealing all the access points shut with heavy-duty materials such as steel or wire mesh screens designed specifically for excluding bats.

Once that is done we’ll also repair the damage done to your home’s interior and exterior to make your house look as if the bats were never there.

Bats are night-flying creatures so they will likely be visible at night. It can be quite disturbing to see bats flying around your home if they are living in your attic, walls or leaving droppings. They can also transmit diseases such as bat guano, which could cause serious health problems to people.

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 Extermination vs. Bat Removal

It can be frightening to discover bats living in your home. Your first instinct may be to call the pest control company. However, Utah law prohibits killing bats. Bats are protected under Utah law, which means that they can’t be killed unless there’s a threat to human health or safety. It is essential that you consult a licensed bat removal company. This will ensure that the bats are safely and humanely removed from your home.

AAAC Wildlife Removal family of bat removal experts will never use chemicals or poisons to get rid of bats, we believe in using humane and safe methods of bat removal to get rid of any wildlife infestation.

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. In addition, the weight of guano build-up can also cause ceiling cave-ins, which can lead to expensive 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

The best method of bat removal in Salt Lake City is to seal up any areas that the bats might be using as entry points. 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 can be a complex process that requires a thorough inspection of all areas where bats may be entering your home.

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

Bat removal from Salt Lake City homes is a complex task that requires expertise and attention to detail. Knowing how many bats are roosting in your Salt Lake City home is important. It is also crucial to identify the species of bats you have so you can safely and humanely remove them.

Our team has extensive experience with wild animals and is licensed to handle bat removals in Salt Lake City homes. Bats need to be removed by experienced professionals who know how best to handle them: they’re not like other pests that can just be swatted away or poisoned without consequence. AAAC Wildlife Removal is available to help you if you have a bat problem.

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.

First, we spend a lot of time looking for entry points to bats. Ensuring that there aren’t any other points of entry is essential to prevent future infestations. Next, you will need to install one-way doors that allow bats to exit your home but not return in. This is a humane and safe way to get rid of bats.

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. After the insulation is removed, it is necessary to fog with enzyme cleaner in order to disinfect every corner.

Once the attic is thoroughly cleaned and disinfected, we 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 reservoirs of deadly viruses like rabies, leptospirosis, Tioman virus, Nipah Virus, and coronavirus among others. Their guano can also be toxic and infect people 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. Yes. If left untreated, histoplasmosis can lead to death from breathing in the dust made up of dried bat feces. It is not advised to remove them yourself as you could contract the disease.

Is it safe to remove bats myself?

Most people will try removing these creatures themselves due to cost – please don’t do this as it’s incredibly dangerous; bats are known carriers of 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. It is better to have a professional do the job than attempt it yourself. The time required is much less than the medical costs and other costs associated with bat-related diseases.
