FORT WAYNE BAT REMOVAL

Ah, the majestic bat, to be revered for its…wait…nobody actually thinks bats are majestic do they? Or, revere them for anything? Fear them, maybe. Run screaming from them, definitely!

With the exception of a few geeked out scientists (and myself), there aren’t too many of us who actually respect bats. Most people just want them gone, ASAP! And we can’t blame you for that.

The truth is bats are majestic in their own right and are critical to our ecosystem. BUT, that doesn’t mean you want them anywhere near you, your home or your family (or your commercial property and clients, as the case may be)!

Why Is It Urgent to Exclude Bats From Your Property?

colony of bats

One good reason is that bats can be dangerous. They can carry rabies and their guano is known to grow a fungus that can cause a serious infection in humans known as histoplasmosis. Excluding a bat colony from your property is a difficult job. We recommend hiring an expert, but we also understand that sometimes you want try yourself. Thats why we created our eBook – ‘The Complete Guide To Bat Removal’

Another good reason to call ASAP is because even just a single sighting of a bat in or around your property can signal that a colony has decided to make a roost nearby or in your home. If that is indeed what has happened, time is not your friend. The longer bats roost in any given location (and certainly if they have babies there), their instincts bond them to that place and their desire to stay becomes stronger with every passing moment. Future generations have even been known to return to their birthplace to live and breed.

Even if you are successful at getting them to flee the premises, bats will do whatever they can to return to that place every year. They instinctively view it as their home and, a colony grows about 30% every year, so it doesn’t take long for it to become an even bigger problem. That it is why it is best to take action fast, and use a true professional that will stand behind their work.

A bat removal specialist (such as Get Bats Out), can perform a thorough inspection and identify the source of the problem and explain in clear terms how to eliminate it. By “eliminate” we mean, force them to leave your building and look elsewhere for a home; lethal force should never be used against bats. It is wrong on many levels, not the least of which is that it is literally wrong according to the law – killing bats is illegal in most states including Indiana!

We understand that having bats on your property can be a perplexing situation to say the least. Call us today! We are always happy to help you figure out the next step to your bat solution, whether you decide to hire us or not!

How much will a professional bat exclusion cost in Fort Wayne?

Bat exclusion should be done by highly trained professionals and even routine jobs can cost more than expected. There are several reasons for this, one is that the work is fairly “high-risk”. We routinely work in the highest reaches of a building – typically on a ladder, on the roof, or even repelling from the roof in some cases. Not to mention the risk of exposure to potentially deadly diseases such as histoplasmosis & rabies.

The good news:

Homeowners insurance will likely cover a good percentage of the removal and cleanup, along with other related services that may be required.

Admittedly, the above information is not exactly a direct answer and is actually pretty vague. At this point, many people wonder why we can’t just say, “our service costs ‘this much’”, and give at least a ballpark figure.

Unfortunately, estimating bat exclusion jobs can vary greatly. So, it’s very difficult to provide a standardized rate or even a ballpark figure without first performing an inspection. But, but we would like to provide at least a glimpse into what is involved in the process.

First, the initial inspection will cost $250. The value of that will be immediately deducted from your total cost upon contracting our services.

Then, there are a variety of factors that are involved in calculating the total value of your contract. Those factors will include:

  • Building size and ease (or difficulty) of access.
  • Structural properties (different building or construction types can make it either easier or harder – or more dangerous – to perform our services).
  • Structures with poor condition roof and siding materials are typically more expensive because they require more work (man hours and materials) to bat-proof, and can even be more dangerous.

On the other hand, there are some things that we do not think should affect your cost, such as:

Your neighborhood. We don’t charge extra just because you live in a nice area. We treat all of our customers the same – rich or poor, private residence or commercial property.

Pricing Gimmicks (like upselling or bait and switch). We don’t play games with our customers safety and comfort. We will quote you a fair price for a job-well-done and then we will stand behind our estimate and our work.

The best thing we can say about our cost is, at the end of the day, we will provide you with a complete and easy-to-understand comprehensive estimate and then, if it’s still not 100% clear, we will be there for you to answer as many questions as you may have. If there is a less expensive way to resolve your issue, we will point it out to you. I often tell people that we don’t practice hard-sell techniques. In fact, I’m happy when I can tell people that they don’t need us!

Our mission is to be your advocate from start to finish!
