Bats in attics in Troy don't stand a chance!

Although bats can be beneficial to your local area by controlling the population of insects, they can become a problem if they start nesting in your home or business. Bat guano or bat feces can be harmful to humans as they may contain fungal spores that cause Histoplasmosis, a respiratory disease that can be fatal if left untreated.

Bats also make constant noises and odor. It is important to address the bat colonies in your attic and other areas as soon as you can. It is best to hire an experienced bat removal service provider from Ohio (like us!) to take care of your bat problem.

AAAC Wildlife Removal has the experience and tools to safely remove bats from attics. They will also take care of your needs, from removing the pests to repairing any damage they might have done and protecting your home from further infestation. Call us today for professional bat removal services on Troy, Ohio.

Bat Removal from Attics in Troy, Ohio

Our humane bat removal service will keep your home free from diseases and damage caused by these animals. For many homeowners, the best solution is to perform an exclusion (or “bat-proofing”) which involves sealing all the access points shut with heavy-duty materials such as steel or wire mesh screens designed specifically for excluding bats.

Once that is done we’ll also repair the damage done to your home’s interior and exterior to make your house look as if the bats were never there.

Troy Bat Removal

Bats are nocturnal creatures, so you’ll likely spot them flying around your home at night. It can be quite disturbing to see bats flying around your home if they are living in your attic, walls or leaving droppings. Plus, they carry diseases that could potentially hurt people and spread through their waste products, like bat guano.

Once you’ve confirmed a bat problem, it’s time to call for help from experts; if left untreated, these animals can cause serious damage and pose health risks. Although bats look harmless, their guano can be full of harmful spores. This infection can cause histoplasmosis. It is a condition that often causes flu-like symptoms and worsens over time. AAAC Wildlife Removal can help you with any questions or concerns about bat control.

Bat Extermination vs. Bat Removal

It can be frightening to discover bats living in your home. Your first instinct may be to call the pest control company. However, Ohio law prohibits killing bats. Bats are protected under Ohio law, which means that they can’t be killed unless there’s a threat to human health or safety. So, it is important that a licensed and experienced bat removal company is consulted. This will ensure that bats are removed safely and humanely from your home.

AAAC Wildlife Removal experts will never use poisons to remove bats. We believe in safe and humane methods to remove any wildlife infestation.

Bat Guano found in an attic in Troy

Bat Damage

Bat guano and urine can compromise the integrity of your house’s structure – It can cause wood rot and lead to structural damage. It also causes stains on walls and ceilings, which can be unsightly. In addition, the weight of guano build-up can also cause ceiling cave-ins, which can lead to expensive repairs. It is important to get rid of bat guano as soon as possible. The longer they wait, the more damage they will do to your home.

Bat Exclusion

The best method of bat removal in Troy is to seal up any areas that the bats might be using as entry points. This is known as exclusion. It ensures that bats won’t return to your home after they have been removed from their existing roosting areas. Bat exclusion is quite a thorough process that requires an inspection of the exterior and interior areas where bats might be getting in.

These entry points may include chimneys, vents, gaps under garage doors or beneath eaves, even holes as tiny as a half-inch. After these areas have been identified by our bat specialist, we will take steps for sealing them off to prevent other bats from entering your home.

Removing Bats in the Attic

Removing bats from Troy homes requires attention to detail and expertise. It’s important to know how much damage is being caused by the bats roosting in your attic and just as crucial, knowing what species of bat you’re dealing with so that you know how to safely and humanely remove them.

Our team has years of experience dealing with all sorts of wild animals, and we are fully licensed to remove bats in Troy homes. Bats should be handled by professionals who are experienced in dealing with them. They are not like other pests that can be killed or swatted away without consequences. AAAC Wildlife Removal is available to help you if you have a bat problem.

This is how we handle bat exclusions:

  • We spend a great deal of time identifying bat entry points and then sealing them shut
  • We set up one-way doors so that bats can exit but not reenter the building
  • Double check that all bats are excluded and out of your home
  • We then seal all entry points with steel wool or mesh screens to prevent re-entry
  • After this, we go through and do a thorough clean-up of any guano left in the attic or walls.
  • Proceed with replacement of soiled insulation.
  • Repair of wildlife damage, both inside and outside of the home.

The first step we take is to spend a great deal of time identifying bat entry points. Ensuring that there aren’t any other points of entry is essential to prevent future infestations. The next step involves the installation of one-way doors to allow the bats out, but not back in again – this is a safe and humane method of removing the bats from your house without harming them.

We then double-check that all bats are out of your home to prevent accidental contact with any bat that may have been missed. We seal all entrance points with steel wool and mesh screens to stop bats from entering again.

Next is to do a thorough clean-up using professional-grade cleaners and sanitizers for any fecal matters left behind by the bats in your home’s floor and insulation. We will go to great lengths in order to make sure your home is free from odors or guano. After the insulation is removed, it is necessary to fog with enzyme cleaner in order to disinfect every corner.

After the attic has been thoroughly cleaned and disinfected we can begin to look at wildlife damage. We’ll fix any damage they may have done inside or outside of your home to make your house look new again.

Dangers of DIY Bat Removal

Bats are known to be carriers of deadly viruses such as rabies and leptospirosis. Their guano is also toxic and can infect humans with histoplasmosis.

Histoplasmosis, which is more common than rabies, can be fatal to bat-related diseases. It’s especially dangerous for people with compromised immune systems, such as young children, the elderly, and pregnant women. One should never attempt to remove bats from on their own because of this reason.

FAQs

What is guano?

Guano refers to bat droppings or feces. These droppings are a major cause of Histoplasmosis disease which is contracted from breathing in dust that comes from dried guano and can also cause stains on ceilings if the bats have been living there for some time.

Is guano harmful?

Yes. Histoplasmosis disease is caused by breathing in dust that comes from dried bat feces and can be fatal if left untreated. Removing them by yourself is not recommended as you may contract the disease.

Is it safe to remove bats myself?

Most people will try removing these creatures themselves due to cost – please don’t do this as it’s incredibly dangerous; bats are known carriers of rabies and other zoonotic diseases(human transferable). 

It’s not worth the risk to try and remove them on your own as the health risks are too great. Also, one must remember that one does need permits for handling these animals for any kind of relocation. We highly recommend having a professional handle the job instead of attempting it yourself as the time taken is way less than medical expenses and other costs that come with contracting these diseases from bats.
