Bat extermination is just a term we do not exterminate bats! We provide safe and humane live exclusions. During the inspection of your home, our technician will determine if you have a maternity bat colony living in your attic. It is important not to disturb a maternity colony during the months of June and July. The smaller male colonies can be determined by fewer droppings. If our technician is unsure, it's important to wait because bats are a protected species and beneficial to our ecosystem. At this time we will also check attic spaces, the exterior and roof line of the home to determine any entry points. Most openings are around a half-inch in size and will have evidence of droppings or a dark discoloration from the oils of the bat's fur. Once all these factors are taken into account, we will provide a detailed estimate for removal and repairs.
During the exclusion process our technicians will install one-way bat doors at the primary entry points. We will then go around your house 360° sealing all potential entry points, making re-entry impossible. One-way doors will remain up for 30-60 days to ensure the bats have all left. In some cases, if it is late in the season or during the winter months, one way doors will stay up until late spring.
