So, you’re just about to go to bed when you hear a strange squeaking noise. You turn on the light and listen more closely. It sounds like it’s coming from the attic. When you get up there to have a peak, you feel something fly above your head. You point your flashlight and there it is — a family of bats hanging from the rafters and fluttering about. You have a bat problem and want it solved now.
Lucky for you, Attic Kings is only a phone call away. We’ll come out to your home as soon as possible to do a thorough inspection and figure out the best solution to solve your bat problem.
Problems Cause by Bats?
- Bat feces can carry dangerous diseases that can be harmful to pets and humans
- Can spread odor throughout the house
- Make loud noises that can make it difficult to sleep
- Can be hosts to mites, ticks, and other parasites
- Tear up and ruin insulation
Bats in the Home
Bats often gain entry to the home by fitting through small cracks and holes. They are able to squeeze into spaces that are the size of a human thumb, so it doesn’t take much for them to begin making your home theirs. Once you know you have bats in the home, you should try to get them out as soon as possible. This is because bats are a protected species and there are laws that can slow down the removal process. Under Georgia bat exclusion law, bats cannot be poisoned or exterminated and cannot be excluded during maternity season (April 16 – August 14).
Bat Removal Process
After we’ve discovered all possible entry points, we will seal them shut so that no more bats will be able to get in. We will then install a one-way exit device that will allow the bats to fly out but prevent them from coming back in. Once all the bats are gone, we’ll remove the device and seal the hole.
After this, we can begin the decontamination and cleanup process. All soiled insulation will be taken out and replaced. We will also clean up any feces that was left behind and spray an anti-bacterial and odor removing spray. By the time we’re finished, your home will be as good as new.
