Humane Bat Removal
Bats are capable of squeezing through openings the size of a dime, making almost every structure vulnerable to bat infestation. They prefer to live in warm, dry, secluded areas, such as attics, and often seek shelter there. This shelter provides protection from other animals and humans, making it a safe place to live.
Discovering a bat in the living space of your home is a good indicator that there is a colony of bats in the attic. Having a bat flying around inside the home increases the chance of direct contact with humans, which is a concern considering bats can carry rabies. Furthermore, the accumulation of feces produced by an established bat colony increases the possibility of contracting a lung disease called histoplasmosis.
AAA Gates' Wildlife Control will arrive at your home, conduct a thorough inspection and provide you with a free estimate outlining the work necessary to undertake the bat removal. During the non-birthing season, the installation of our tested and proven Gates one-way-door will allow the bats to exit but not to get back in. However, during the bats' June and July baby season, a one- way-door will not be installed as this would only separate the mother bat from its babies causing them to starve and rot in the attic. Accordingly, after June 1st bat removals are postponed until August to ensure that the young bats are old enough to exit through the one-way-door.
The key to solving any bat problem lies in the meticulous caulking of the building perimeter and sealing every potential gap. Equally important is the screening of chimneys, vents and plumbing mats etc. This will ensure that your bat removal is permanent, and prevent their re-entry into your home.
