brmcWhat Professional Bat Control Means To Your Home This Winter

Professional bat control services are usually called in emergencies when an animal has already made its way indoors and is a potential threat to the people and pets in a home. We’re more than capable of helping you remove wild animals. However, you may get more benefit from our wildlife exclusion services. Hire us, before you have a problem, to keep bats and other pests out of your home for good.

Here are just a few facts from professional bat control specialists:

Bats Can Enter Homes Through Tiny Spaces.
Even a ½ inch is big enough to allow a bat to get indoors. Gaps of this size can be found along roof ridges, at points where walls meet, in areas where siding has slipped or cracked and in roof vents and chimneys. One of our bat specialists can scour your property for gaps and apply the most appropriate exclusionary materials for the space.

Bats Usually Can’t Be Relocated.
Once these creatures take a liking to your home, it can be incredibly difficult to keep them away. Blocking easy entrances, preventing easy access in the first place is much more effective than trying to relocate rats after they taken up residence in your home!

Bats Can Be Dangerous To Humans And Pets.
Though they’re often gentle, bats can bite and even attack when they’re afraid. Worse, a small percentage of bats are rabies carriers, meaning they can pass the disease along without displaying any symptoms. In addition, they can pass along other illnesses in their fecal matter. It’s important to hire a professional for bat removal and cleanup to ensure you minimize the risks associated with these services.

If you do opt for DIY bat removal, make sure to wear thick gloves and use a box or thick towel to remove the animal from your home. Once outdoors – preferably at night – you can place it on a tree or bush, and then go about the task of sealing up your house. source:

Identifying A Bat Problem

Richmond MI Bat RemovalIf bats have invaded your home, there are steps that should be taken immediately to ensure the safety of your family or employees. It is easy to spot a bat problem when you see bats flying into your home, however, the problem may not always be this obvious. Sounds in the attic, droppings on the ground and grease marks on your building can all be indicators of bats inside your home.

Sounds In The Attic

Calls to us regarding bat problems usually start coming in during the middle of the winter – these calls are almost always big brown bats.

Big brown bats “wake up” in the middle of winter warm spells sometimes, move around in the attic, and stumble into living quarters or offices.

When spring comes around, bat eviction requests start to come in once again, and do not stop until it cools off in the fall. Why? In the fall, your bats were breeding. In the spring, they start to have their babies. If you are a parent, you know that you want to get away from your children, well at least occasionally, that is what the bats are doing.

Signs Around The House

Some of the signs of bats to look for around your home or business include bat feces, also called guano, and grease marks on buildings.

Look for feces on the ground inside or outside your home, and marks toward the roof where the bats might be entering and exiting the attic.

Bats love hanging out behind window shutters too, and often settle in behind them. Bats have a tendency to squeeze their way into some pretty interesting places, consequently, signs of guano and grease marks may not always be limited to the attic or upper level areas of your home.

Identifying Guano

If you find “mouse droppings” by your door, it may be bat guano. Every year we receive an incredible number of calls with complaints about mouse droppings outside of people’s homes and businesses. However, upon investigation these droppings frequently turn out to be bat feces.

Bat feces is called guano. Imagine for a moment, (because most people don’t want to do it), picking up a handful of this guano and gently crushing it in the palm of your hand. If this is done outdoors under sunlight you will see hundreds of sparkly and shiny things in the droppings. This is because Guano primarily consists of the hundreds and thousands of insects bats consume every evening. The shiny things you see are insect eyes and wings; and it helps illustrate why we say bats outside are good.

Indicators Of Feeding Roost
And Free Roosting Bat Problems

People often tell us “I see bat guano on the ground but not the bat”. In such cases, if you find bat guano on the ground or on your deck and you look up and do not see the bat, this is referred to as a “feeding roost”.

feeding roost is a location desirable for bats to come to on a nightly basis to digest their food, urinate, defecate and leave by dawn.

free roosting bat is one that likes to hang around various areas around your home in search of a warm, cozy spot to shelter and roost.

Free roosting bats are more common in areas where homes or businesses leave lights on at night. Lights do not scare or repel bats away, they attract them instead. Bats are attracted to lights because lights attract insects, making cozy areas behind architectural structures close to lights very appealing to bats. Arched entry ways or porches are borderline irresistible to bats; and your attic is simply Heaven.

The most common area for bat guano to be seen for the first time by home owners will be underneath wall mounted speakers in the corner of their front or back porch, as well as behind shutters and outdoor televisions. These areas are dark and cozy, and a perfect place for a bat to tuck itself away snug and secure during the daytime hours.

Odors Inside Your Building

Bat urine can sometimes be seen on the outside of a building, on attic rafters and elsewhere around the house. This bat urine is typically going to look like a splash of milk leaving a white, barely visible residue. It contains ammonia and can certainly be described as having an odor.

For the most part, guano droppings dry quickly and by themselves seldom create an odor. But, when given time to accumulate, bat guano combined with urine will start to smell like ammonia under the right conditions.

Basically the smell that is recognized as bat guano is actually not from the guano, but rather from the ammonia in the urine instead.

In other words, you may not have an odor in your home, but that doesn’t mean the bats aren’t there, it may merely mean the guano and urine have not yet had a chance to pile up enough to start to smell.

Of course, if you do have an odor, similar to a nasty cat litter box and you don’t have a cat or anything else that may be causing it – then that could indeed be an indicator in and of itself. And it may also mean that you have a large colony of bats and/or one that has been in place for a long time. source:
