JACKSON HOLE BAT REMOVAL

The rural setting here in the Last of the Wild West is one of the things I love most about Jackson Hole, and I think it’s safe to say that wild critters love it too, because we sure have our fair share of ‘em, including bats!

(In fact bats constitute 15% of all of Wyoming’s mammal species, thus contributing extensively to Wyoming’s great biological diversity)

Now, it’s a known fact that most Cowboy State residents are more than capable of handling the average critter problem on their own, but bats are a special exception. While you may be able to get a bat to temporarily exit your building, the likelihood of being able to keep them away without professional intervention is less likely. And, risking exposure to creatures that carry rabies and whose guano can cause histoplasmosis is not advisable.

Your bat problem is best left to experts like us.

The solutions we provide are professional and permanent!

Who should I call to get rid of my bat infestation in Jackson Hole, Wyoming?

Get Bats Out is a nationwide company with local technicians, and we have been performing professional bat removal services throughout the GYE (Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem) for many years, so we have the local knowledge and expertise that is unique to our area.

Part of our local knowledge extends to the unique building styles in our neck of the woods. This is an important factor to keep in mind, because each building type requires a unique approach to properly ‘bat-proof’. This is especially true for custom wood structures and log cabins (more on that later).

We are…

  • Professional
  • Friendly
  • Courteous
  • Capable
  • Non-intrusive
  • Discreet

Our services are ONLY bat related – it’s all we do – they include…

We have been living and working in Freedom, Wyoming for 10 years, but we routinely perform bat exclusions throughout Star Valley including Jackson, Jackson Hole, Driggs, Victor, Pinedale, Dubois, and Rock Springs as well as all the towns along the Upper Snake River Plain, from Rexburg, to Pocatello, and from Idaho Falls to American Falls. We also serve clients from as far south as Bear Lake near the Utah border, including the towns of Montpellier and Paris, Idaho and Garden City and Logan, Utah.

 

We will happily travel up to 200 miles from Freedom, WY with NO travel fees!

Do I really need to pay for professional bat removal, or can I just do it myself?

Dealing with bats and guano is difficult, and it can be dangerous! You put yourself at risk of being infected with rabies and histoplasmosis. Plus, you would be surprised to know how many people have had other injuries (not to mention property damage) just trying to get bats out of their house.

If you are attempting to get rid of a bat in your house right now, please avoid any efforts that could harm or kill it. Bats are very important to our ecosystem, and in most cases it is illegal to kill them. Here is the best thing you can do if you see one or suspect you have a bat (or roost) in your home or office (perhaps due to sounds or smells coming from your attic or walls) – call us immediately!

Removing a bat colony from your home is difficult and potentially dangerous, see our eBook to understand more about you problem and if you are capable of taking care of the bat infestation yourself.

The bottom line is, most do-it-yourself ideas found on the internet don’t work and often just end up wasting your time and money. Some can even cause property damage, costing you even more for repairs in the long run.

We do quality work for a fair price and then, back it up with a minimum 1-year warranty.

What is the real cost of bat exclusion?

Our work is done on a contract basis, meaning each job will have a different value. This is because each bat problem is very unique, and each house, office, barn or log cabin is also unique.

The cost to resolve your particular issue is estimated after a thorough on-site inspection is completed. The inspection costs $250 and will be deducted from the overall contract price should you choose to use us to perform the bat removal

So, while we can’t exactly provide you an estimate over the phone – site unseen – we can promise you a few things about our pricing.

  • You will get an accurate estimate of the work that needs to be done, why it needs to be done and how much it will cost; written in plain, easy to read language.
  • We won’t hit you with any hidden costs or nickle-and-dime type fees.
  • We do not practice unscrupulous gimmicks like upselling or bait-and-switch.
  • All your questions will be answered to your satisfaction before any work begins.

At the end of the day, it is our mission to  deliver quality work at a fair price and stand behind the work done. That is why all of our removal and clean-up services come with:

  • Minimum 1-year warranty
  • FREE & unlimited phone consultation before and after the job is done.

Whether you decide to hire us or not, we are here to help!

Can you bat-proof a log cabin?

The basic construction techniques and materials of log structures make them some of the most difficult dwellings to “bat-proof”.  

This is primarily because log structures are full of uneven surfaces assembled with many joints and materials of varying densities (green logs, dried lumber, stone, brick, concrete, asphalt, clay, plaster, silicone, metals, etc.). While putting all of these materials together makes for some beautiful buildings; in many cases it also creates an excellent opportunity for bats to enter and take up dwelling there.

Additionally, as is true with most other residential and commercial structures, bat avoidance is rarely considered during the construction phase of log cabins. The large populations of bats in wooded, lake, river or mountain resort regions (where most log-cabins are located) is rarely given a thought until they invite themselves in.

Also, with log structures, there is a unique thing that happens after the initial assembly – the logs themselves will settle. In fact, many builders will automatically return to inspect and repair (or re-chink) visible areas of settling to re-establish the aesthetics of the buildings. However, aside from the aesthetic concern, little thought is given to the effects that settling has in the higher reaches of the structures, allowing bats to exploit these overlooked areas.  

Another factor, at least for the Wyoming / GYE area, is the extreme changes in weather (from -20F to 90F) affecting the different densities in building materials every year with continuous expanding and contracting. We have developed specific criterion and very meticulous techniques to address these “moving” structures, to make them unattractive and inaccessible to bat colonies.

As an industry leader, we are specially equipped with knowledge and proven techniques for successful exclusions on structures that other pest control companies won’t or can’t do – including log cabins.
