Although bats can be beneficial to your local area by controlling the population of insects, they can become a problem if they start nesting in your home or business. Humans can be affected by bat guano or bat feces. They may contain fungal spores that can cause Histoplasmosis. This is a serious respiratory disease that can lead to death if it is not treated.

There’s also the constant noise and smell that bats can cause. It is important to address the bat colonies in your attic and other areas as soon as you can. 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 Shepherdsville, Kentucky

We provide humane and effective bat removal services to keep homes free of diseases and damage from these creatures. 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!

Shepherdsville 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. They can also transmit diseases such as bat guano, which could cause serious health problems to people.

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. Kentucky law protects bats. They can’t be killed unless they pose a danger to human health and safety. It is essential that you consult a licensed bat removal company. This will ensure that the bats are safely and humanely removed from your home.

AAAC Wildlife Removal experts will never use poisons to remove bats. We believe in safe and humane methods to remove any wildlife infestation.

Bat Guano found in an attic in Shepherdsville

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 Shepherdsville is to seal up any areas that the bats might be using as entry points. This process is called exclusion and it ensures that no more bats will come into your home once they’ve been removed from their current roosting spots. 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 could include vents, chimneys, gaps beneath garage doors, or under eaves. Even tiny holes as small as a quarter 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

Bat removal from Shepherdsville homes is a complex task that requires expertise and attention to detail. Knowing how many bats are roosting in your Shepherdsville 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 Shepherdsville 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. To prevent future infestations, it is important to ensure that there are no other entry points. Next, you will need to install one-way doors that allow bats to exit your home but not return in. This is a humane and safe way to get rid of bats.

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. After the insulation is removed, it is necessary to fog with enzyme cleaner in order to disinfect every corner.

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 reservoirs of deadly viruses like rabies, leptospirosis, Tioman virus, Nipah Virus, and coronavirus among others. Their guano can also be toxic and infect people with histoplasmosis.

Histoplasmosis, which is more common than rabies, can be fatal to bat-related diseases. It’s especially dangerous for people with compromised immune systems, such as young children, the elderly, 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. Removing them by yourself is not recommended as you may contract the disease.

Is it safe for me to remove bats?

Many people will attempt to remove these creatures by themselves out of cost. This is dangerous and dangerous. Bats can transmit 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.
