BAT CONTROL AND REMOVAL
PURCOR Pest Solutions can help protect your home and your family from bats with our effective bat control and removal services.
Any unwanted pests and creatures in your house can be a source of stress and frustration. Bats in particular can be a nightmare because they can be unbelievably difficult for homeowners to get rid of on their own.
It is important to note that it is against the law for bats to be exterminated. If you have bats in your home, you should work with a professional pest control company that knows how to humanely remove them while protecting your property and your peace of mind.
Why do I have bats in my attic?
Unfortunately, your attic is an ideal space for bats to nest. While bats often rest in trees or caves during the day, residential attics’ dark, insulated interiors are ideal for raising their young. Your attic provides everything they look for in a home: shelter from predators and the elements, and a dark place to rest away from the sun.
Other wildlife, such as rats or raccoons, may chew their way into your attic, but bats typically only become an issue if they find a damaged vent, loose window sill, or missing roof tile that they can squeeze through.
Are bats dangerous?
Regardless of what you may have seen or read in popular culture, bats are not inherently dangerous creatures. They prefer to avoid people, rather than actively seek out and attack them. It is crucial to keep in mind, however, that bats are common carriers of rabies, and can spread the disease through their bite.
Additionally, if bats roost in your attic, they will eventually spread their guano, or waste. Bat guano carries dangerous bacteria that can endanger the health of you and your loved ones if not removed by bat control professionals.
How do I get rid of a bat problem?
You may be tempted to head up to the attic with a broom and a bag, but you should never try to remove bats on your own. The federal government has several regulations in place regarding the removal of bats. Many bat species in the United States are endangered or threatened, and while you may not be thrilled to have them in your attic, their survival is vital to their species. In Florida, even professionally removing bats is illegal during their April – August maternity season.
Additionally, killing bats in any form is illegal throughout the United States. And if the bat you harm belongs to an endangered species, you may find yourself paying hefty penalties for violating federal regulations.
Before you attempt to tackle a bat problem, contact PURCOR’s licensed bat control and removal specialists. We can safely and legally solve your bat issue in a manner that’s safe for you and the bats.
How can I prevent bats from getting in my house?
The best way to solve a bat infestation is to prevent one from happening. Whether you suspect a bat issue is brewing or you simply want a professional opinion, PURCOR can help. Contact our team to schedule an inspection of your home. We’ll identify any conditions that are conducive to a bat problem and offer preventive solutions, such as placing screens on vents and sealing roof eaves.
Going to Bat for You
At PURCOR Pest Solutions, our Integrated Pest Management system means that we approach each property as a new problem to solve. With bats, we will often identify their likely entry point and install mesh that allows them to leave but not reenter. After a few weeks, when they’ve all left the property, we seal the hole.
While not impossible, it might be difficult for private homeowners to do this without professional help. That is why we are happy to offer our services, to make the lives of our customers easier.
