Bat Removal

Bat removal starts with identifying areas bats are using or could use. Bats will gain entry into a structure in many ways. Usually it is due to construction defects, defects caused by weather, or just poor maintenance.

These locations are typically high areas such as soffit to roof intersects, ridge ventilation caps, gable end vents, drip edges, home additions, around chimneys, these are typical bat pest control problems. Ridge vents are a great example why these areas are looked at in bat removal.

During an inspection of a bat job we check the ridge vents for lifting up, rodent damage, and end caps missing. There is no easy long term solution in bat removal for a ridge vent fix except to exclude the ridge vent. Palmetto Wildlife uses an effective removal solution for bat removal in this area for long term removal.

While performing an inspection around chimneys, there may be smudges around the openings that will let us know if this is a good place for bat removal. The smudges are from a repeated movement of bats coming and going from the area. At times guano will be deposited on the siding and chimney.

Technicians in the bat removal business are experienced in recognizing these signs for proper bat removal. If you are uncertain if you have bats but see these types of signs, you could watch these areas at dusk and see if bats are exiting these areas. Your eyes and ears will provide these answers if a bat removal professional is needed.

A bat inspection is not complete without inspecting the attic if available. Keep in mind that a respirator should be used to protect the bat removal provider from contracting diseases from droppings.

A bat job attic inspection will let us know if the bats were roosting around the chimneys, down the ridge or other places in the attic. We will determine the amount of guano that was left behind by the bats. A large amount of bat guano in your attic could damage your insulation and render it ineffective in its r-value.

You may also lose value in your home if this contamination is not removed by a professional. Guano could cause health risks to the occupants in that structure. We will determine the size of the attic, and also decide if the contamination is excessive enough for an attic restoration. Palmetto Wildlife Extractors offers this process after the bat removal is complete.
