Bats are a protected species and cannot be killed or injured. Although bats can be beneficial to the environment, they can also cause extensive and costly damage to your home. Bat guano (feces) is toxic to humans and has a very distinct, unpleasant odor which can be difficult to remove. We have seen homes that were infested with bats for so long that the bat guano and urine had permeated into the wood and insulation in the attic, making insulation removal &replacement necessary. At Armed Force Pest Control, Inc., we are highly experienced in humane bat removal and will eliminate the infestation before it gets any worse. We use a three step process when dealing with bat infestations.
1) Inspection: One of our highly trained technicians will perform a thorough inspection of the entire structure locating any points of entry 1/4” or larger. We will then prepare an exclusion report outlining the areas that need to be repaired and will provide you with a quote for the repairs.
2) Bat removal: Our technicians will use special one-way exit netting to allow the bats to humanely exit the structure but prohibit re-entry.
3) Exclusion repairs: Permanent repairs will be completed to prevent re-entry of bats at the time the netting is removed. Rest assured that we use great care in making sure that the repairs blend into the home as much as possible and will not be visually unpleasant.
