Why are bats good? A single bat can eat 600 insects in an hour. (Forget the bug lights; let's get some bats!) Bats are not bad creatures in general. In fact they are excellent for the environment. However, they can cause a serious issue if they decide to roost in your home. Their droppings can pile up quickly and can cause a number of diseases. Histoplasmosis being the main diseases associated with guano. If bats roost in your attic, you need to get them out as quickly as possible. They can cause many problems with smell and parasites as well.

If your home has bats, please be aware that it is imperative that you have them excluded properly and have the home cleaned properly. Bat exclusion involves sealing your entire home, top to bottom, except for one exit point. If the bats leave and can not get back in the way they normally do, they will instantly search for a new way into your home. Since bats only need a tiny opening to enter a home,( A Quarter OF An Inch Or More) if there is one, they will find it. Bats locate these places by the airflow, not by sight. We (humans) locate them mostly by sight (although some airflow is able to be seen with proper equipment). If bats are excluded from your home, and can find their way back in, they will. It is their home too (even though they don't pay rent), and they will not leave it unless they must..THAT IS OUR JOB, to force them to leave. Giving them no choice in the matter !!!

Sometimes the only evidence of the presence of bats in a building will be an accumulation of droppings in one area of the attic, or droppings and rubmarks on siding at the bat entry opening. To confirm their presence and locate the openings used by bats’ in the warmer months, observe from the outside for bats leaving in the evening, from one-half hour before untill one-half hour after sundown. Once you have determined the principal entry points, you may seal all of the openings and crevices of over 3/8” not used by bats. Because bats cannot gnaw to enlarge an opening, a variety of materials can be used to seal an opening, including: l/4” hardware cloth, fly screen, sheet metal, wood, caulking, expandable polyurethane foam, or fiberglass insulation, (But not in June or July when the young are likely to be inside).Bats are susceptible to rabies, a serious viral disease that results in death if untreated. If you are bitten by a possibly rabid animal, you must immediately consult a doctor for a series of injections; there is no cure once symptoms emerge

If you have a wildlife problem, such as with BATS, it best be resolved by a professional firm, such as ourselves. Then, and only then, can you have peace of mind that that neither you, a family member, or pet will be bitten or injured, Also the EXCLUSION, and if needed, the biological cleanup will be done properly.
