Affordable Bat Removal – Bat Control

Johns Creek Bat Removal

Bats in a Gable Vent? Bats in your attic?

Bats are protected in the United States. Harming a bat can carry a serious fine and possibly jail time!  We can safely, legally, quickly & inexpensively get bats out of your attic or gable vents.

YOU NEED TO HIRE A PROFESSIONAL! Our bat removal and bat-proofing methods are custom-tailored to suit each individual structure and situation. Our bat removal specialists will utilize humane techniques to ensure that no bats are ever harmed in the process.

Special protection is required to prevent contraction of a deadly illness such as histoplasmosis or rabies. Bats are extremely territorial and they will normally stay in your area once they have been excluded. If the building has not been properly sealed, the bats will enter another opening in the same building. Bats only need an opening that is ¼ inch by 1½ inch, the thickness of a standard #2 pencil. Once we safely get the bats out, the exclusion work MUST be done to prevent the bats from returning to the roost site. After the work is done to seal up the building, proper bat guano clean-up is the next step.

LICENSED BAT INSPECTIONS:

We charge a flat rate fee for Bat Inspections on standard homes & commercial buildings. If we are hired to do the Bat Removal work then  Bat inspections are time consuming and are only done in the early morning hours during the summer so the Wildlife Technicians can safely enter an attic to get a grasp on the situation.  They will inspect inside the attic and outside the home or building to establish how large the bat problem is, what is required to get the bats out, how much time will be required of us, bat exclusion materials & bat guano clean-up needed.  From the Bat Inspection we will be able to provide you with a written proposal of the costs to get the bats out (exclusion work) and the Guano Clean-up.

 

Bats Entry in HomesHUMANE BAT REMOVAL (BAT PROOFING)

Bat Exclusion is what others call sealing up a home so bats cannot get in… Bat Proofing.  Although we use the top of the line materials & implement the highest standards with our exclusion methods – we still boast some of the least expensive prices for bat exclusion in our market.  Since no two homes are alike, no two exclusion proposals are the same price. However, Bat Exclusion is far less expensive than squirrel or rat exclusion work since we have to exclude fewer places normally.  Bat Exclusion is the act of using bat proof materials, devices and “METHODS” to keep the bats OUT.  Some of the most common entry areas for bats are:

◊ Gable Vents ◊ Soffit Junctions ◊ Wall meets Eaves ◊ Soffit meets Siding ◊ Window jamb cracks ◊ Dormer meets Roof  ◊ Holes

We only use the highest quality animal-proof materials and devices, therefore, we are proudly able to guarantee that no critter will get past the areas where we have performed the exclusion services.

WHY BATS ARE PROTECTED

Some species of bats, such as the Little Brown Bat, can eat 500 – 1000 mosquitoes in one (1) hour. So if we consider the night 8 hours, that can add up to 4000 – 8000 in a night.  Even if you have bats excluded, since they are super territorial, they will still stay in your area but just not in your attic or home.

WARNING! Complete bat exclusion measures should not be performed from mid-May through early-August, as there may be flightless babies. If it is during this time, there are steps we can take as Wildlife Experts to keep them from gaining further access inside your home and a step to complete removal. If not done properly it could lead to the babies being stuck in your attic without their Mothers and food. The young bats would die. Believe me an attic full of dead bats is much worse than having the bats roosting there temporarily while we work on getting them out.

Working in the wildlife control business has allowed us to see this first hand the results of homeowners trying to rid themselves of bats “DIY” style. We can come to your home, inspect it and tell you exactly how small or large of a problem you have. We can advise you of the steps that we need to take to get the bats OUT.

  In Georgia the most common bats are: Browns and Freetails. Their outdoor flying pattern when feeding is a very erratic pattern, usually darting back and forth and making quick direction changes. Both Little Browns and Big Browns often emit a chattering sound as they get ready to exit their roosting areas at sunset to begin feeding. The sound is similar to a cricket or katydid noise. I also compare it to the squeaking sound made by styrofoam.

Bats in the USA are not Vampire bats and will not bite us and turn us into Vampires. The bats in our neighborhoods live on insects. They consume a tremendous number of night flying insects every single night (especially mosquitoes) they are very beneficial to have around. Many homeowners are installing bat houses on their property to provide a natural method of insect control, especially Mosquitoes, and reduce the need for pesticides. Bat houses do not increase the chance of having bats in your home. If bats find your home favorable to them as a roosting site, they are already in there.

Bats do not attack people, and a fear of bats is caused by a lack of education about them. Their echolocation system enables them to locate a tiny insect flying in total darkness. When people are outdoors at night, insects are attracted to us by heat and smell. The reason bats sometimes appear to be swooping towards us is due to the fact they are simply zoning in on the insects we attract. The next time you see a bat pass close by, you should be thankful. It may have just eaten a West Nile Virus infected mosquito that was about to bite you!

Bats only become a problem when they decide to use an attic or other section of a home or building for a roosting or nursery colony. This is when most people want them evicted and repair the structure as needed to prevent them from entering in the future. Accumulations of their droppings (guano) can cause odor and bug problems, which is the primary reason bats should be excluded from a structure occupied by people. Since a lot of the more common hangouts for bats are being eliminated, like natural caves & mines, bats are adapting by using man-made structures. They are able to locate very small openings, the size of #2 pencils, into homes and buildings. They are opportunists. Taller structures are more likely to receive less maintenance due to a lack of access for repairs. People seldom notice small cracks or gaps on higher buildings, but a 1/2″ crack in a mortar joint 30 or 40 feet off the ground becomes a superhighway for bats to enter a structure. Since they are nocturnal and for the most part very quiet animals, they often use attics for years before the odor from the build-up of guano alerts us to their presence.  Sometimes they are sighted flying in or out of the structure.  Until an exclusion can be performed, the problem of bats entering the living quarters can be solved or minimized by sealing all holes and cracks leading from the attic into your living areas.

Remember, it is illegal to kill bats, as most are state protected and some federally protected. It is also illegal to use any type of poisons or chemicals for bats.
