If you think that you have bats in the house, it’s always in your best interests to leave the entire removal procedure to professionals because of health considerations. Professional companies who offer bat removal services have the proper gear, training, and resources to safely extract the bats from the residence.
They also will seal off all exit points to prevent further exposure to the bats. The bat-extraction companies will also do a thorough inspection of the property to make sure that the bats are completely gone. A lot of people think that they can get rid of the bats themselves but this is usually not the case.
A lot of the time, the bats that roost at the top of a property are not the ones the homeowners are after. Instead, they are looking for places to roost and will typically seek out a bat house or roosting area. If the bats are not removed, they will continue to build their colonies underground and eventually find a new place to live.
For this reason, bat removal services are needed right away when a bat infestation is suspected. Aside from bats, there are other reasons that a bat infestation needs to be handled by bat removal services. One of the most common reasons is the presence of mice and rats.
These creatures carry diseases and are quite harmful to pets and humans. If a person discovers that there are mice or rats living in the house, it’s best to take measures to get rid of them as soon as possible. One of the things that a professional pest control company would use is bat exclusion.
There are a variety of ways in which a bat removal services company will conduct bat eradication. One method involves sending a small aircraft into the attic or crawl space of your house. A high-pressure hose is attached to the engine of the plane and water is sprayed onto the areas where the bats are known to be living.
This is known as the bat exclusion method. Bats are killed using this method, though some bats may still survive. A second method that bat removal services employ involves the use of an Insect Growth Regulator (IGR). IGRs are usually injected into the areas where the IGRs are to be placed.
After being injected into the areas, the insects are lured into the IGRs where they are killed. In some cases, the insect growth regulator may also be combined with pyrethroids to increase the bat removal cost.
If you hire bat removal services to remove bats in the attic, crawlspace, or any other place, you need to ensure that they are completely gone after the bat removal services leave. Even if you see some small creatures remaining, you should get an inspection done by a professional soon to determine whether these small creatures are harmless or not.
If the initial inspection reveals that they are not harmless, an insecticide may be applied to reduce their numbers. Many homeowners mistakenly think that the presence of bats on their property indicates that there are no bat colonies in the area.
It is therefore common for homeowners to hire bat removal services to conduct an insecticide spray assessment and then to apply an insecticide to kill any remaining bats. During the bat eradication process, any bats living in the vicinity of the bat colony are exterminated and this can lead to future problems such as the resurgence of a bat colony.
Bats excrete a foul odor known as bat stool. If you notice bat feces on your property, you should consult a specialist immediately. You should do this even if you smell only the ordinary, garden-type odor. The foul odor coming from bats is a sure sign that a bat infestation is in the area.
Bats excrete bat stool because they seek shelter, and if the only place they can find such protection is an attic or basement, the bat population will continue to increase until such time as they are flushed out of the premises.
