Bat removal from attics in Eastern KY

Bats love to find little tiny holes that they can squeeze through. As quickly as they’ve found a refuge, they’ll invite the whole colony in! Prior to you know if you can have an entire family of bats hanging around in your rafters, eaves, soffits, chimney, and behind shutters.

The worst component concerning having bats in your attic (past it simply being gross) is that those fellas have no place to poop. That’s right! All that hazardous bat guano that can transfer histoplasmosis simply drops straight onto your attic flooring, and even worse, your insulation.

Bat Removal vs Extermination

Your initial impulse may be, “We need to eradicate these bats!”, however let me inform you: dealing with a bat infestation like an insect control problem is a huge mistake. These wild animals are not ants or termites. It is illegal to kill a bat like they are.

Bats are protected in most parts of the country, so ensure you use an expert when managing a bat problem.

Trapping is less than suitable for bats due to the fact that it’s hard to correctly capture them like you would a rodent, raccoon, or a squirrel. Lethal trapping means you are removing an all-natural predator for mosquitos, flies, and other bothersome bugs around your house.

Eastern KY Bat Removal and damage repair work

The absolute best means to get rid of bats is via an approach called exclusion. Instead of attempting to entice a bat into a trap, the most intelligent thing to do is force it to leave (which they will certainly do at night to go hunt) and never let it back in! Sound crazy?

Frequently asked questions regarding Bat control

Q. Should bats be safeguarded in Kentucky?

A. Absolutely! Bats are an important part of the ecological community in Kentucky. In just an hour, one bat can eat over one-thousand mosquitos! It would be a dark day if we lost all of our bats.

Did you know that bats make up almost 25% of all mammals living on the planet?

Q. What is bat guano?

A. Bat Guano is another term for bat droppings. The droppings are little and can appear similar to rodent droppings. However, don’t be fooled. If you shine a flash light on them after crumpling the droppings apart (please use gloves!), you’ll see them shine or glimmer in the light.

Q. Is guano harmful to humans?

A. Be extremely cautious around bat guano (once more, gloves people!) as it can transmit a dangerous fungal infection called histoplasmosis. You can inhale it just by being anywhere near guano, so we actually recommend you allow professionals with proper safety equipment take care of an attic cleanup.
