We’re Building Something Special Together
About The Removal Process – Live Bat Exclusion
We do not work with companies who exterminate bats. Bat removal services must be completed without harming a single bat in the attic. We did not make this rule; the Federal Wildlife Authorities did, actually. Since bats are protected, a special process known as Live Bat Exclusion must take place in order to rid a bat colony from a building. However, if the bat was captured inside living quarters, that bat is eligible to be euthanized & turned into the Health Department for a rabies evaluation.
The Bat Inspection
The bat inspection is essential to verify the presence of bats, and also to determine which areas of the home the bats are getting inside. Sometimes, the bat problem is rather obvious. There are various signs the wildlife professional will look for during the inspection. Such as, bat guano stuck to siding, indicating an entry point is above that area, or grease stains around a gap, which also indicates an entry point into the home.
Identifying The Bat
The attic should be looked at for signs of guano on the insulation. Depending on the size and concentration of the guano, the species can generally be identified. Big brown bats, little brown bats, and Mexican free-tailed bats are the three most common culprits of a bat infestation. Occasionally, the bats themselves can also be spotted roosting inside the attic. When you first call a bat removal company, you should always ask the operator if they will look inside your attic during the inspection: this step is crucial.
The real challenge in removing bats is finding all of the gaps on a home a bat could fit through. You see, bats can slip through spaces no larger than the width of your pinky finger, and your typical home may have dozens of these types of areas with small gaps. Moreover, there are two types of entry points. Primary entry points are areas where the bats are currently gaining access to your attic. Secondary entry points are exposed to gaps where bats could POTENTIALLY gain access. Chimney flashing, attic vents, dormers, drip edge, roof junctions, and a variety of other areas need to be carefully examined and sealed to ensure a job well done.
Excluding Bats Using One-Way Valves
Once the secondary entry points are completely sealed tight, the one-way bat valves can be installed over the primary entry points. There are various brands of devices that are utilized by professionals. When installed, the device is angled downwards so that the bats can slip through the device. With the downward angle, the bats will be unable to climb back through the device, successfully evicting the bats through the one-way valve.
Bat Exclusion Time-Frame
Once the home is sealed, and the one-way devices are hung over the primary entry points, the devices are generally left on the house for an additional 2-3 weeks to ensure every bat leaves the home and attic successfully. But, generally speaking, the majority of the bats will be excluded on the first night. The extra 2-3 weeks is just precautionary. After the 2-3 weeks have passed, the bat removal professional will return to the home and remove the one-way devices, followed by sealing the entrance where the device had been. We have now concluded the bat exclusion process.
Examine Degree Of Damage And Review Options
Luckily, bats do not cause direct structural damage by chewing. However, the real damage is caused by bat guano and urine in the attic. As the bat guano sits in the attic, it can develop harmful spores of bacteria, which can cause respiratory illnesses, such as Histoplasmosis. So, any trace of the guano left behind should be cleaned out. The companies on our website can offer this service. Depending on the degree of damage caused by the guano, the entire attic may need restoring. Attic restoration is the process of removing all insulation, sanitizing, and placing new insulation in the attic. Most wildlife companies are equipped to offer this service. Call the professional listed in your area to ask if they provide attic restoration. This process should only be done AFTER the bats have been evicted, and the home has been properly bat-proofed.
Attic Restoration And Bat Guano Cleanup Services
After humanely excluding bats from your attic, the attic may require some maintenance due to accumulated bat droppings. Because bats leave behind piles of guano in your attic, you must consider attic sanitation. This guano can pose significant issues, especially if a larger bat colony was involved. Bat guano also contains harmful bacteria, which can cause respiratory infection and disease. We advise you to hire one of our pros for Bat Guano Cleanup, simply because it’s better to be safe than sorry.
