Bats can be a common problem for Florida homeowners and business owners. In many cases, we receive bat removal calls because a colony has moved into the attic, or a number of other spots, within a home or building. Although these nocturnal winged creatures don’t normally come into close contact with people, bat activity around your property can be dangerous as they begin to defecate spreading their urine and feces, also known as guano, throughout insulation and soffit areas. Guano allows for the perfect growth environment for histoplasmosis, a fungus that can cause severe respiratory issues in humans, putting you, your family, and customers at risk. Guano also has corrosive properties that can damage building material that it comes in contact with over time.
Common bat issues facing Florida homeowners & business owners:
- Swarming colonies of bats outside of the property
- Bats trapped or living in a chimney or attic
- Foul odor due to bat droppings and waste
- Upset family pets or alert behavior (pest can often detect the presence of other animals well before humans can)
With the laws surrounding bat removal, their protected status in many areas, and the dangers they pose, you should never attempt to remove them from your home or business on your own. Instead, trust a team with over 20 years of experience and the right equipment required to get the job done safely and effectively.
At ASAP Wildlife Removal, we understand just how important bats are to the environment, and take every step to ensure their safe relocation. Most importantly, we’ll identify how they’re entering the property and prevent further bats from moving in. As a more specialized form of animal control, bat removal is performed through the process of exclusion or guiding the animals out of the space as opposed to trapping them. We also highly recommend and provide professional cleanup once the bats have been removed to sanitize the affected area of any guano that may be hazardous to your health. And if they’ve roosted in your attic, we can take care of that too -we’re fully equipped to remove, sanitize, and replace attic insulation as part of our full-service attic restoration.
With over 20 years of experience, ASAP Wildlife Removal is your best choice for bat removal near you. We’ll get the job done right the first time.
