Bat Removal

Bat RemovalBats may enter a structure in openings as little as 3/4 of an inch. It is illegal to kill bats as some species are endangered and bat populations are very beneficial to control mosquitoes. Bats are associated with some health hazards. The risk of contracting rabies from a bat is relatively small. Only 5% of bats of bats submitted for testing are infected with the rabies virus. However, because many bats will attempt to bite when captured, they should be picked up with tongs or a shovel. Additionally, dead bats should be removed with care using a shovel or gloves. Bat droppings are also associated with histoplasmosis, which is a disease that affects the lungs and can cause breathing problems. Removal of droppings should be done by a professional.

What We Will Do
Smart Pest Solutions will first inspect the property to find the gaps in structure in which bats are entering and exiting. We fit the structure with eviction valves which allow the bat to escape but not reenter. After approximately a week all bats have typically exited. We then seal the gaps in the structure to eliminate reentry. If necessary, attic can be cleaned and sanitized.
