Our removal services consist of sealing all potential areas around the home and installing bat valves which allow the bats out, but not back in. We seal all areas on the home including vents, vent fans, ridge venting, gable vents, and more. The bat valve is a one way door that allows the bats to fly out, but will not allow bats back into the home. Bats cannot enter your home in the same fashion a raccoon or a squirrel might by chewing threw a piece of rotted fascia. Bats can only enter through existing holes or man made holes.
What Damage Will Bats Do?
Spread of Disease Bats, like other animals, can carry rabies. And although bats rarely bite humans, the risk of bat bites frightens us away from areas inhabited by bats. Along with the risk of rabies, bat guano carries the spores for Histoplasmosis, a disease mainly affecting the lungs of people, especially those with immunity disorders, the elderly, and the very young.
Bat mites, often mistaken for bed bugs, will often make humans their new hosts. Insect exterminators, sometimes mistaking these for bed bugs, will treat a building, only to be called back time and again because the bugs were killed, but with the presence of bats, new ones took their place and the infestation began anew.
Structural Damage Structural Damage. As we noted above, bats do not chew on buildings. However, their guano and urine will accumulate over time, resulting in waste dripping through ceilings, ruining insulation, and soaking through sheet rock or particle board, eventually causing the interior of the structure to collapse.
