Not many creatures generate as much fear in people as bats. World Class Wildlife Removal can guide you through the entire process of bat removal, from the first bat inspection through bat exclusion and any repairs needed to keep them out of your home or business. Our professional bat removal technicians can remove your bats and help restore your peace of mind.
Bat faces can frighten us and their swooping and screeching can cause panic. They are popularly believed to be carriers of disease. It can be alarming to a homeowner when bats take up residence in their home. No one needs to tolerate sharing space with bats in the same house.
Do I have a Bat problem?
Despite the benefits bats give to the ecosystem as a whole, they become a problem when they take up roosting in an attic, or soffit vent. You may ask yourself, ”How can I tell if I have a bat problem in my home?”
Scratching sounds: The most prominent sign that you have a bat infestation is a scratching sound coming from your attic. The scratching can be constant or intermittent and can occur both at night and during the day, though it usually occurs at night. A squirrel or other rodents makes a gnawing sound instead of scratching.
Odor from bat droppings: Sometimes a pungent, ammonia-smell may be a sign of a bat infestation (the odor from large amounts of bat droppings), but as the odor only accumulates gradually, it may not be noticed by many homeowners and is not necessarily present in all infestations.
How not to handle your bat problem?
Many people believe that bats are migratory and will eventually leave an attic where they have begun residing. This is not true. Bats are not a migratory species and they will not go away if they are left alone. When bats take up residence in your home, they are looking primarily for somewhere stable and safe to raise their young and roost. They are looking to find a permanent home. A colony of bats will only get larger until the colony is professionally removed.
Bat Removal in Clearwater
World Class Wildlife Removal technicians will conduct a thorough inspection of your home to identify all points of entry, starting from the peak of the roof and combing over every seam and junction until he reaches ground level. Once the bat points of entry are identified, exclusion valves are attached to the entry points that will both get the bats out of your home and prevent them from returning to your home. Our exclusion process combines a series of properly coordinated valve installations with repairs to points of entry in order to ensure a complete and permanent eviction.
The bat exclusion process is a very detailed and delicate service that requires experience. World Class Wildlife Removal has performed successful bat exclusion work for residents, businesses, municipalities and churches all across Clearwater.
What to do if a bat is flying around my home?
- Attempt to close the bat into a confined space that has few objects in it for the bat to hide in or behind (bathroom, laundry room, or empty spare bedroom).
- Firmly stuff a towel along the base of the door to the room you have closed it into.
- Call World Class Wildlife Removal (727-754-8585) and get a Tech sent to the home to extract the bat.
- If you lose sight of the bat, shut every door in the home and be sure to close doors behind you while moving through the house.
