ANIMALS WE CONTROL
Having bats in your home is a serious problem, even if they are confined to the attic. Not only do they urinate and defecate anywhere they roost, causing staining and odour problems which are difficult to remove, but they are also associated with dozens of diseases which are dangerous to humans, including histoplasmosis (a lung disease caused by the spores of fungus which grow on their droppings or guano) and rabies.
While bats are very beneficial to humans because of their affinity for many flying insects, such as mosquitoes, if they find their way into your home and take up residence, they can also be some of the most destructive, dangerous and expensive pests to control.
In California, bats are classified as non-game mammals making it illegal to kill bats in the state. Eliminating this unwanted nuisance can be very difficult and for those attempting to do so must know how to properly handle them. These mammals are known to contaminate areas that they invade and clean up must be done thoroughly by experienced handlers.
Never the less, if the issue is not properly handled or disregarded it can lead to bigger problems and costly to remediate
What we do!
At A Team Services Inc., our bat exterminators will perform do a full inspection of your attic for bats, droppings, dead and young bats. Next, we will install one-way bat doors which will allow the bats to exit the attic when its feeding time, but not return.
We leave these doors up for about a week to ensure all the bats are gone. Next, we will do another inspection for live bats in the attic. If all bats are gone, we will remove the bat door and permanently seal the hole closed so they won’t be able to return.
After the bats are gone, we highly recommend our full cleanup and decontamination process. Depending on the number of droppings and location we may be able to clean and decontaminate the main area where the bats were located, or we may have to clean and decontaminate the entire attic. This process involves removing some or all the insulation in the attic, as well as cleaning and decontaminating some or all of the attic.
