Bat & Guano Removal
Because temperatures are dropping and food is becoming more scarce, bats in our neck of the woods need to go into hibernation to survive the winter months. Unfortunately, your attic lends an ideal spot to hunker down and stay warm, which is why many homeowners tend to spot them more often this time of year.
A few bats sleeping in your rafters may not seem like such a huge issue, but bigger problems can arise before you know it. A couple of these guys can turn into a lot in a hurry, and soon your space will be filled with stains and bad odors. Along with this, bats are known to tear up insulation, chew wiring, and their droppings can cause your floorboards to rot.
There’s also the issue of bat guano, or feces, which is harmful to your home and your health. It is known to cause something called histoplasmosis, which can lead to serious health risks for those with already weakened immune systems. If you have guano in your home, it is highly recommended that you invest in professional removal services. The team here at Bat Removal & Prevention has the equipment and protective gear necessary for removing this substance safely and efficiently. Call today to get our crew on the job.
Now, bats are obviously our specialty, but they aren’t all we remove. We can also get rid of any rodents, such as mice, rats, or squirrels, as well as birds and raccoons. We’ve even handled the removal of beavers, groundhogs, and muskrats! All of these animals can wreak havoc on your space in a hurry, and they can trigger health issues for family members, too. If you spot them in your space, then there’s no time to lose – reach out to our team now!
Along with this, we’ll ensure all entry points are effectively sealed up so that no creatures can work their way back in any time soon. All in all, once we’re through, you’ll be left with the peace of mind and satisfaction you deserve as we move into the blustery weeks ahead.
We Always Use Humane Methods
One thing many worry about when hiring a wildlife removal company is what will happen to the creatures when all is said and done. While we don’t want bats, mice, and squirrels in our home, they all serve an important purpose in their natural environment, and killing or harming them shouldn’t ever be a part of the removal process. We are proud to use only humane methods of removal, ensuring no critters get hurt throughout the ordeal, and we always set the animals free in an area that is well suited to their needs.
We will never use poisons or harmful traps, so you won’t have to stress about a thing. The animals will stay happy and healthy, as will any pets or kiddos in your home – it’s the best route for everyone!
