Bats in an attic can be a nightmare. Not only do bats cause structural damage with the accumulation of guano, but they also present health risks. It’s a well-known fact that bats are carriers of rabies and can transmit this fatal disease with an unnoticed scratch or bite. Did you know that bat droppings can also be a health hazard? Bat guano hold toxic spores called histoplasma capsulatum, that when inhaled can cause a lung infection called histoplasmosis.
Bat removal is typically done in a multi-step process. First, we inspect the home to find all of the bat entry points as well as areas that are potential entry points. After all of the openings are located, a seal up is performed to funnel the bats down to only using the main entry points. At these points, bat excluders are placed, which are one-way valves that allow the bats to exit and not re-enter the structure.
Once the bats have been removed from the structure and the remaining opening are sealed up, any necessary guano clean up must be done. This is for multiple reasons. Mainly because of the health hazards involved with bat droppings and the dangers of sweeping them up or using a conventional vacuum to get rid of the guano. Another reason is that bat guano can weaken drywall and destroy attic insulation. If enough bat droppings have accumulated, the ceiling can come down from the weight and corrosion.
Bird Trapping and Nest Clean Up
Nuisance wildlife like birds can cause a mess that shocks the majority of homeowners. When professional bird control and bird removal is needed, it’s usually because birds have taken up residence inside of an attic or an exhaust vent. Since attics are seldom visited, attics can have unbelievable amounts of nesting that accumulates over years, many times filling several contractor bags when cleaned up. Bird nesting can carry bird mites, ticks, fleas and parasites.
Bird removal from exhaust vents usually hit its peak around May and June. The most common species causing the need to get rid of birds from vents is blackbirds and starlings. These nuisance birds will clog vents and build nests in attics that can reach heights over 6 feet.

Squirrel Management and Prevention
A few signs that you may have wildlife like squirrels in your attic are the type of noises in the attic and the time that you are hearing the noise. Squirrels tend to move very quickly and will run back and forth, often even playing or fighting with one another. Since they are diurnal, squirrel activity is usually heard during the day.
Our squirrel removal and squirrel control process is typically done by either setting baited traps near the entry points or multi-catch traps right over their entry points to catch them as they enter or exit. Removing squirrels in an attic will produce on average 3-5 squirrels, however, in some instances, there can be many more or just a solitary squirrel.
