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.

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. Once these locations have been identified by our bat removal specialist we will take steps to ensure that they are sealed off so no other bats can get inside your home.

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.
To prevent any accidental contact with bats, we double-check that all bats have left your home. We seal all entrance points with steel wool and mesh screens to stop bats from entering again.
Next, clean up with professional-grade cleaners and sanitizers any fecal matter left behind by bats in your insulation and floor. 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.
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 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.
What is guano?
Guano is bat feces or droppings. These droppings can cause Histoplasmosis, a disease that is caused by breathing in dried guano dust. Ceilings can be stained if bats have lived there for a while.
Is guano harmful?
Yes. Yes. If left untreated, histoplasmosis can lead to death from breathing in the dust made up of dried bat feces. Removing them by yourself is not recommended as you may contract the disease.
Is it safe for me to remove bats?
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. You must also remember that permits are required to handle these animals in any type 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.
