Having a bat infestation in your home certainly would make anyone want to know, how does bat removal work?
For starters, we don’t whip out pellet guns and start shooting. (You’d be surprised how often this is suggested to us.) Aside from being totally inhumane to a very valuable species, it is also completely illegal.
Bat are considered a keystone species on planet Earth. This puts them in the same category as bees.
A keystone species is defined as: “A species that has a disproportionate role in an ecosystem relative to its size in that ecosystem.”
Batcon.org goes on to further explain why bats play this role: “Bats are often considered “keystone species” that are essential to some tropical and desert ecosystems. Without bats’ pollination and seed-dispersing services, local ecosystems could gradually collapse as plants fail to provide food and cover for wildlife species near the base of the food chain.”
Now that we know you shouldn’t just kill bats, how does bat removal work?
The Short Version To The Question “How Does Bat Removal Work”?
This is our overall process:
- Identify likely entry/exit points the bats are using – one-way device(s) will be placed near here in step 3.
- Bat proof or seal the structure with the exception of leaving area(s) unsealed for temporary installation of “one-way” devices. This is the most time consuming (and comprehensive) part of our work.
- Install one-way devices that will allow bats to leave at night for feeding, but prevent their reentry.
- Wait at least one night to allow bats to leave.
- Remove one-way devices and seal everything up.
Seems easy enough, right? If you think you’re ready to give it a go yourself, check out our DIY Bat Removal Guide here. We do charge for it. We also credit your money towards us doing the bat removal if you try to do it yourself and fail. I won’t tell you how many customers we have acquired after doing this process.
What makes our bat removal process so valuable, is that we have trained and experienced technicians that know what they are looking for. Bats can fit into a hole as small as 3/8 of an inch.
Our technicians also have rabies shots that are current and up to date and insurance that covers them if they fall off a ladder. This is important to note, because if you are thinking of doing this yourself, you will be on the top of at least a 24 foot ladder while working with both hands and going nose to nose with bats that don’t want to leave your home.
