Pest bats in your attic in Lyndon had better watch out!

Bats are beneficial creatures that help control the insect population in your area, but when they create nests and roosts in your home or business, it can be a huge problem. Bat guano or bat feces can be harmful to humans as they may contain fungal spores that cause Histoplasmosis, a respiratory disease that can be fatal if left untreated.

There’s also the constant noise and smell that bats can cause. If you have a colony of bats in your attic or other areas, it is very important to get rid of them as soon as possible. It is best to hire an experienced bat removal service provider from Kentucky (like us!) to take care of your bat problem.

Bat Removal from Attics in Lyndon, Kentucky

Our humane bat removal service will keep your home free from diseases and damage caused by these animals. For many homeowners, the best solution is to perform an exclusion (or “bat-proofing”) which involves sealing all the access points shut with heavy-duty materials such as steel or wire mesh screens designed specifically for excluding bats.

After that, we will repair any damage to your home’s exterior and interior. This will make it look like the bats were never even there!

Lyndon Bat Removal

Bats are night-flying creatures so they will likely be visible at night. If there’s a colony living in your attic or walls and leaving droppings behind, it can be pretty disturbing to see them flying around your house. Plus, they carry diseases that could potentially hurt people and spread through their waste products, like bat guano.

Once you’ve confirmed a bat problem, it’s time to call for help from experts; if left untreated, these animals can cause serious damage and pose health risks. Bats may look harmless, but their guano is full of dangerous spores that can lead to histoplasmosis – an infection that often leads to flu-like symptoms at first with more severe respiratory issues later on down the road. If you have any questions about bat control or handling of a bat problem, contact AAAC Wildlife Removal for information and assistance.

Bat Extermination vs. Bat Removal

Learning of bats in your home can be unnerving and your first instinct might be to call the nearest pest control available, However, killing bats is illegal in Kentucky. Bats are protected under Kentucky law, which means that they can’t be killed unless there’s a threat to human health or safety. So, it is important that a licensed and experienced bat removal company is consulted. This will ensure that bats are removed safely and humanely from your home.

AAAC Wildlife Removal family of bat removal experts will never use chemicals or poisons to get rid of bats, we believe in using humane and safe methods of bat removal to get rid of any wildlife infestation.

Bat Guano found in an attic in Lyndon

Bat Damage

Bat guano or urine can damage the structure of your house. It can lead to wood rot and structural damage. It also causes stains on walls and ceilings, which can be unsightly. Ceiling cave-ins can be caused by guano buildup, which can result in costly repairs. This is why it’s important to deal with bat guano right away; the longer you wait, the more damage they’ll do to your home.

Bat Exclusion

The best method of bat removal in Lyndon is to seal up any areas that the bats might be using as entry points. This is known as exclusion. It ensures that bats won’t return to your home after they have been removed from their existing roosting areas. Bat exclusion is quite a thorough process that requires an inspection of the exterior and interior areas where bats might be getting in.

These entry points may include chimneys, vents, gaps under garage doors or beneath eaves, even holes as tiny as a half-inch. After these areas have been identified by our bat specialist, we will take steps for sealing them off to prevent other bats from entering your home.

Removing Bats in the Attic

Removing bats from Lyndon homes requires attention to detail and expertise. Knowing how many bats are roosting in your Lyndon home is important. It is also crucial to identify the species of bats you have so you can safely and humanely remove them.

Our team has extensive experience with wild animals and is licensed to handle bat removals in Lyndon homes. Bats need to be removed by experienced professionals who know how best to handle them: they’re not like other pests that can just be swatted away or poisoned without consequence. If you’ve got a bat infestation on your hands, give AAAC Wildlife Removal a call!

This is how we handle bat exclusions:

  • We spend a great deal of time identifying bat entry points and then sealing them shut
  • We set up one-way doors so that bats can exit but not reenter the building
  • Double check that all bats are excluded and out of your home
  • We then seal all entry points with steel wool or mesh screens to prevent re-entry
  • After this, we go through and do a thorough clean-up of any guano left in the attic or walls.
  • Proceed with replacement of soiled insulation.
  • Repair of wildlife damage, both inside and outside of the home.

The first step we take is to spend a great deal of time identifying bat entry points. Ensuring that there aren’t any other points of entry is essential to prevent future infestations. The next step involves the installation of one-way doors to allow the bats out, but not back in again – this is a safe and humane method of removing the bats from your house without harming them.

We then double-check that all bats are out of your home to prevent accidental contact with any bat that may have been missed. We seal all entrance points with steel wool and mesh screens to stop bats from entering again.

Next, clean up with professional-grade cleaners and sanitizers any fecal matter left behind by bats in your insulation and floor. We go through great lengths to ensure that your home is free of any odors and guano. Fogging with enzyme cleaner is also done after the insulation has been removed to make sure every nook and cranny is disinfected.

Once the attic is thoroughly cleaned and disinfected, we look at wildlife damage. We’ll fix any damage they may have done inside or outside of your home to make your house look new again.

Dangers of DIY Bat Removal

Bats are known to be carriers of deadly viruses such as rabies and leptospirosis. Their guano is also toxic and can infect humans with histoplasmosis.

Histoplasmosis is the most common disease (besides rabies) associated with bats and can be fatal if contracted by people – especially those with compromised immune systems – which includes young children, elderly people, and pregnant women. This is why it is not recommended to attempt to remove bats by yourself.

FAQs

What is guano?

Guano is bat feces or droppings. These droppings can cause Histoplasmosis, a disease that is caused by breathing in dried guano dust. Ceilings can be stained if bats have lived there for a while.

Is guano harmful?

Yes. Histoplasmosis disease is caused by breathing in dust that comes from dried bat feces and can be fatal if left untreated. It is not advised to remove them yourself as you could contract the disease.

Is it safe for me to remove bats?

Most people will try removing these creatures themselves due to cost – please don’t do this as it’s incredibly dangerous; bats are known carriers of rabies and other zoonotic diseases(human transferable). 

It’s not worth the risk to try and remove them on your own as the health risks are too great. You must also remember that permits are required to handle these animals in any type of relocation. We highly recommend having a professional handle the job instead of attempting it yourself as the time taken is way less than medical expenses and other costs that come with contracting these diseases from bats.
