Bat Guano. Those are two words you never want to hear. But that’s the biggest issue when it comes to having bats in your house. In other words, Bat guano is their droppings. It can be pretty toxic to people, causing histoplasmosis, which can be deadly if it spreads throughout the body.
Bats are also a predator’s bait. These snack-sized animals attract predators, such as raccoons and weasels. This can lead to another infestation of unwanted animals. Either way, it’s in your best interest to get the bats out of your house as fast as possible.
If you think you might have a bat infestation in your attic, there’s a few things you can keep your eyes (and ears) open for. The big one is when you see the bats leave your house at dusk. More often than not, bats leave en masse, which means the whole colony leaves at once. Other signs include squeaking in your walls, fluttering noises and a very strong ammonia-like smell.
Bat Removal Process
We first figure out all points of entry. This can be tricky, since bats can fit through holes you wouldn’t think possible.
From there, we install a one-way door and deodorize the area, so that once the bats get out, they can’t find their way back in.
Getting professional help is important. Bats are protected creatures which means you have to know what you’re doing when removing them.
Rats can invade your home to find food, water, and shelter, and can also transmit serious diseases, and carry fleas, ticks, and lice. Rats colonize in attics and walls, and can be difficult to remove on your own.
