GET RID OF BATS ONCE AND FOR ALL
ARE YOU LOOK FOR BAT REMOVAL SERVICE IN Washington
SCHEDULE EFFECTIVE PEST CONTROL SERVICES IN WASHINGTON
We are the number one company for safe and humane bat removal in the local area, with a team of fully-qualified, appropriately-licensed, and properly insured bat removal technicians ready to implement aggressive and effective control strategies, following a thorough building or property inspection.
The inspection allows us to:
- find entry points that the bats are using to get inside and outside the building
- find piles or areas of bat guano, a corrosive substance that corrodes through walls, ceilings, floors, etc. over time
- locate damage caused by the bats
- highlight access points that’ll be suitable for the installation of exclusion devices
- locate dead animals
- determine the bat species and formulate a plan that is legal in the state, for that particular species
- create a plan of work, a time-frame, and an estimated price for your entire bat removal job
This process: finding, noting, and then resolving all individual problems under the larger bat infestation umbrella, gives us the upper hand when it comes to the removal of entire bat colonies, which we can do without harming a single individual within it once we have all of the information.
Exclusion approaches for bats: Exclusion is the recommended form of bat removal in the United States because it encourages the animals to find their own new home, without the need for often dangerous trapping and pointless relocation efforts. Bats often fly for miles, one side of the world to the other, for migratory purposes. You’d need to travel a great distance to successfully relocate a bat colony so that it doesn’t find its way back home.
FACTOS ABOUTS BATS
You should know a few things if you’re sharing your home or building with a colony of bats, or even a single bat:
- Bats carry a range of diseases that they could pass on to pets, or even humans — including rabies, and histoplasmosis, the spores of which are airborne in feces when it dries and becomes dusty.
- You will very rarely have just the one bat in your home — they live in colonies, hundreds or thousands or even tens of thousands of individuals strong.
- DIY bat removal is illegal in most states because the animal is protected as bat removal technicians are licensed to perform bat removal activity when it is appropriate to do so.
- You are not permitted to move, disturb, or otherwise harass bats, bat nests, or bat babies during the maternity season — it is essential that you wait for the bats to grow old enough to fly out of the nest themselves.
OUR HUMANE BAT REMOVAL SERVICES
Bats are often a very misunderstood creature in American society. They are often hated due to their looks, their flying abilities, and the diseases they can carry. While they can present serious problems to the health of you and your family, it is important to get rid of bats in the most humane, harmless way possible. Bats are very important to any ecosystem, as they control the populations of insects that would otherwise grow very large and cause serious problems.

What Problems Do Bats Cause?
While bats do cause a lot of damage to homes and properties, the most serious charge against bats is their ability to carry dozens of very harmful diseases that can possibly kill humans in some cases. The diseases they carry are classified as zoonotic diseases. Put simply, a zoonotic disease is any malady that can spread from animal to human. In many cases, bats are regularly found to be carrying 120 or more diseases, each of which can potentially cause serious health risks to your family. Ebola, coronaviruses, rabies, and many other diseases have been found to be carried by bats. There are a couple of common ways that you can contract these diseases from bats. The most common way these diseases are transmitted is by humans coming into contact with feces from the bat. Another, less common but still possible way is by being bitten by the bat. Regardless of how these diseases are spread, they can cause serious problems.
Even with all of the health risks they pose, bats are also detrimental to have inside of your home for another reason, damage. If you are currently or if you have previously had a bat problem, you have likely discovered it in your attic. Bats roost in attics regularly, and they will leave their feces everywhere. Insulation is very soon ruined because of a buildup of bat feces, as its insulative properties are very diminished, costing a lot of money in energy bills. One of the other problems with having bats in your home is their ability to spread harmful diseases, as well as carry other small parasitic creatures in with them. Finally, when bats are inside your home, it will likely cause more bats to find your home and move in as well, creating quite the big problem.
How Do I Remove Bats?
While it might seem like a simple task to remove bats from your home or property, it is highly discouraged. Not only can you potentially contract a potentially fatal illness, but you are also likely to inadvertently kill bats through stress. Since bats are very important to the Washington ecosystem, it is generally a great idea to hire a wildlife removal service.
