Alamo Heights Bat Removal

Bats are nocturnal creatures, so you’ll likely spot them flying around your home at night. If there’s a colony living in your attic or walls and leaving droppings behind, it can be pretty disturbing to see them flying around your house. They can also transmit diseases such as bat guano, which could cause serious health problems to people.

Once you have confirmed that there is a problem with bats, it’s time for experts to help. If left untreated, these animals could cause severe damage and pose serious health risks. Bats may look harmless, but their guano is full of dangerous spores that can lead to histoplasmosis – an infection that often leads to flu-like symptoms at first with more severe respiratory issues later on down the road. If you have any questions about bat control or handling of a bat problem, contact AAAC Wildlife Removal for information and assistance.

Bat Exclusion

Bat removal Alamo Heights is best done by sealing up any entry points that bats may be using. This is known as exclusion. It ensures that bats won’t return to your home after they have been removed from their existing roosting areas. Bat exclusion can be a complex process that requires a thorough inspection of all areas where bats may be entering your home.

These entry points may include chimneys, vents, gaps under garage doors or beneath eaves, even holes as tiny as a half-inch. Once these locations have been identified by our bat removal specialist we will take steps to ensure that they are sealed off so no other bats can get inside your home.

Removing Bats in the Attic

Bat removal from Alamo Heights homes is a complex task that requires expertise and attention to detail. Knowing how many bats are roosting in your Alamo Heights home is important. It is also crucial to identify the species of bats you have so you can safely and humanely remove them.

Our team has years of experience dealing with all sorts of wild animals, and we are fully licensed to remove bats in Alamo Heights homes. Bats need to be removed by experienced professionals who know how best to handle them: they’re not like other pests that can just be swatted away or poisoned without consequence. AAAC Wildlife Removal is available to help you if you have a bat problem.

This is how we handle bat exclusions:

  • We spend a great deal of time identifying bat entry points and then sealing them shut
  • We set up one-way doors so that bats can exit but not reenter the building
  • Double check that all bats are excluded and out of your home
  • We then seal all entry points with steel wool or mesh screens to prevent re-entry
  • After this, we go through and do a thorough clean-up of any guano left in the attic or walls.
  • Proceed with replacement of soiled insulation.
  • Repair of wildlife damage, both inside and outside of the home.

First, we spend a lot of time looking for entry points to bats. Ensuring that there aren’t any other points of entry is essential to prevent future infestations. Next, you will need to install one-way doors that allow bats to exit your home but not return in. This is a humane and safe way to get rid of bats.

We then double-check that all bats are out of your home to prevent accidental contact with any bat that may have been missed. We seal all entrance points with steel wool and mesh screens to stop bats from entering again.

Next, clean up with professional-grade cleaners and sanitizers any fecal matter left behind by bats in your insulation and floor. We will go to great lengths in order to make sure your home is free from odors or guano. Fogging with enzyme cleaner is also done after the insulation has been removed to make sure every nook and cranny is disinfected.

Once the attic is thoroughly cleaned and disinfected, we look at wildlife damage. We’ll fix any damage they may have done inside or outside of your home to make your house look new again.

Dangers of DIY Bat Removal

Bats are known reservoirs of deadly viruses like rabies, leptospirosis, Tioman virus, Nipah Virus, and coronavirus among others. Their guano is also toxic and can infect humans with histoplasmosis.

Histoplasmosis, which is more common than rabies, can be fatal to bat-related diseases. It’s especially dangerous for people with compromised immune systems, such as young children, the elderly, and pregnant women. One should never attempt to remove bats from on their own because of this reason.

FAQs

What is guano?

Guano refers to bat droppings or feces. These droppings are a major cause of Histoplasmosis disease which is contracted from breathing in dust that comes from dried guano and can also cause stains on ceilings if the bats have been living there for some time.

Is guano harmful?

Yes. Histoplasmosis disease is caused by breathing in dust that comes from dried bat feces and can be fatal if left untreated. It is not advised to remove them yourself as you could contract the disease.

Is it safe for me to remove bats?

Most people will try removing these creatures themselves due to cost – please don’t do this as it’s incredibly dangerous; bats are known carriers of rabies and other zoonotic diseases(human transferable). 

It’s not worth the risk to try and remove them on your own as the health risks are too great. Also, one must remember that one does need permits for handling these animals for any kind of relocation. It is better to have a professional do the job than attempt it yourself. The time required is much less than the medical costs and other costs associated with bat-related diseases.
