Safe Bat Removal and Bat Control
While we at Get Bats Out highly respect bats and all they do for the environment, we understand that bats and humans are not meant to cohabit the same building or home. Bats do eat 1000′s of mosquitoes each night, but in your home they bring the risk of rabies, Histoplasmosis, Property Damage, and Bat Bugs (often mistaken for bed bugs). In a commercial setting, you can add liability, loss of customers, and depreciation.
We remove live bats from all types of commercial and residential buildings. We do not harm the bats – we perform an “exclusion” followed by a “bat proofing”. When needed we also perform Histoplasmosis remediation and guano clean up.
Our bat removal service is nationwide and we offer quick response. Most bats are legally protected and some, such as the Indiana Bat and the Gray Bat, are classified as endangered species by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. We comply with all state and federal laws and guidelines such as:
- Wildlife Nuisance Permits where necessary
- Full Liability and Workers Compensation Insurance
- OSHA Safety Protocols Strictly Followed
- Current Rabies Shots for all Personnel working with bats
Homeowners, if you are the “hands on” type – or simply want to be an informed consumer, we suggest you take a look at our book!
