Why Is It Important To Get Rid Of Bats?

Bats can enter your home through your gable vents, ridge vent or small gaps along your roofline. Once inside your cozy attic, they deposit bat guano (feces) and urine. Consequently, there are health risks associated with having bats in your attic.

Bat Guano

A bat infestation can result in a good amount of bat guano in your attic. Attics are the prefect incubator for mold growth in the summer. In addition, the heat with release foul odors which will penetrate into your home. With a large bat infestation, their feces and urine will seep into your ceiling which can cause sever sheetrock damage.

Some bats carry a harmful disease, Histoplasmosis, which may be present in their guano.  Histoplasmosis is an airborne infectious disease caused by fungus spores attached to the bat guano and can easily spread through your home or business. This conditions can be very dangerous for people with weaker immune systems, like the elderly, young children and people with compromised immune systems. Some reported symptoms include fever, chest pains, loss of appetite, dry cough, headaches, shortness of breath, impaired vision, and possibly joint and muscle pains. Some cases, if not treated, can be fatal. Therefore, only a professional should handle bat removal services in your home.

Zoonotic Viruses

Bats can carry viruses that can transfer to other animals and humans. These types of viruses are known as “zoonotic” viruses. Bats are one of the top carriers of this class of virus which includes over 60 different viruses. Notably, bats can carry Rabies, Ebola, Nipah, Hendra, Marburg and Coronavirus. Since bats spread viruses easily, never try to catch or touch a bat if you see one in your home. This will reduce your chances of virus exposure or infection.

Bat Bugs

Bat bugs, relatives of the common bed bug, are insects that can invade your home if you have a bat infestation. They do not transmit diseases to humans if one were to bite you. However, their bite can still be painful and irritate your skin. These little insects do carry harmful pathogens on their bodies. The pathogens can get on areas that they move around on, like your furniture. This is not a pleasant situation and it is something that needs to be handled quickly before they spread further throughout your home.

You should only look towards a professional to provide bat removal services. To effectively remove bats from your home and keep them from coming back can be a tricky process. Moreover, a professional should always handle bat decontamination because of the health risks.

How Do You Get Rid Of Bats?

Did you know that bats can eat an estimated 6,000 bugs per hour? As a result, they can be beneficial to reduce the mosquito population in your yard. However, you do need to remove bats from your home as soon as possible. The longer you wait, the larger the colony will become. That is to say, bats will return each season to the same location to breed. So just because you thought they left last season, they will return forfold.

Bat Removal

When removing bats from your home, a bat removal specialist will identify and seal all possible entry points. In other words, this service should include not only the bats current access locations, but also any additional areas they can relocate too. That is to say, bats can enter a home through a very small gap, like only 1/2″ in size. A trained professional in bat removal knows what areas to seal to keep bats out for good.

Wildlife Damage Control Agents are not allowed to issue depredation permits for bats during the months of May through July. Thus exclusion is the desirable method for bat removal. In other words, one-way bat tubes installed at each current entry point. Once the bats safely leave your home to feed in the evening, they are unable to re-enter your home.

Bat Decontamination

It is important to note that not all wildlife control companies do bat decontamination, but you can count on Varmint Gone! We clean, disinfect and deodorize the contaminated area. That is to say, we extract bat guano, remove contaminated insulation, kill bat bugs, and neutralize airborne mold spores and eliminate foul smells. In some cases, you may need to replace excessively contaminated insulation. Our goal is to restore your attic to pre-bat condition.

Bat Houses

Varmint Gone encourages the installation of bat houses, also known as bat boxes. They provide an alternative roosting habitat for bats that were evicted from your home. Bat houses can provide a safe environment for bats, while they protect your yard from insects, like mosquitoes, moths, and beetles. Bats prefer bat houses mounted on buildings rather than those mounted on poles or trees. You can mount multiple bat houses side-by-side. Bats are more likely to move into a group of three or more bat houses. Speak to your Varmint Gone technician for more information about the installation of bat houses.

Bat Birthing Season

Bat birthing season can vary, based on the climate zones of North America, between the months of May to July. However, baby bats have been historically found in Charlotte primarily during the month of June. Juvenile bats must be mature enough to fly to use a bat exclusion tube to leave your home. Many companies elect not to offer bat removal services during bat birthing season, while others simply ignore these important guidelines. In some cases, we may need to wait to install one-way bat tubes until the juvenile bats are old enough to fly. Bats are able to fly at three weeks old and are independent at four weeks old. In the meantime, a Technician can seal the additional areas of your home to prepare for the exclusion process.

Homeowners Insurance

Most homeowner Insurance companies consider bat infestations a maintenance issue, since they usually get into your home through pre-existing holes or gaps in the roof or exterior walls. Your policy could kick in to help pay for repairs if bats cause physical damage that’s covered under your homeowners insurance. Another possibility is wind damage to your home that allowed the bats to enter the attic. In other words, they might paid for the damage, but not the removal of the bats themselves. It is helpful to know what your homeowners policy will and will not cover before a technician comes to your home.

Not all companies that provide bat removal services are equal! Place your home in the hands of a bat removal specialist that can do your job right, call Varmint Gone at 888-391-3330 or schedule an inspection online.
