Bat Removal Services in Opelika, Auburn, Lake Martin


GUIDELINES for dealing with bats

Bats are such a crucial part of our ecosystem and because they play a significant role in controlling the insect population, including many agricultural pests. Bats are small mammals and can enter tiny spaces as small as 3/8 of inch cracks in siding, vents, and chimneys if not sealed properly. Go Pro Wildlife Removal Company offers safe & secure Bat Removal Opelika services, which is not harmful to the bats.

Large Colony of Bats in Attic

During May through July, some species of bats such as Mexican Free-Tailed Bats and Big Brown Bats can form a large colony in an attic or other space in your home. These colonies often have a maternal colony in which the female bats leave the babies, or pups, in the area. The bat pups are unable to fly, which can be an issue if an exclusion (placement of the one way door to evict the bats out of the space) is completed at this time. The adult bats will fly out at night and feed, and if a bat exclusion is done at this time, the adults will not be able to get back into space, and the pups will then starve and die. It can then cause another issue to the homeowner in the form of a very unpleasant smell.

During the winter months, bats may also go into dormancy (slowing of all body functions during short periods) or hibernation (slowing of all body functions during more extended periods) from January - March. Bat exclusion during this time is complicated, and the exclusion process will take more extended periods or will need to wait until the temperatures reach around 50 degrees. Due to the different season of bats, this has to be considered in the proper time for the humane exclusion of the bats. Give us a call for a Bat Removal Auburn & inspection service, and we will give you the best option for your nuisance bat issues.

Common diseases spread by bats

Bats carries the number of pathogens that can infect humans and cause severe illness to human. Bat rabies is the most common type of rabies, and if contracted by the person, there is no cure and is most times fatal. More than 200 germs have been associated with bats. They can also spread Histoplasmosis and White Nose Syndrome.

Guidelines for Dealing with Bats

Many times, customers do not know they have bat issues until a bat makes its way into their home and is found flying around the house, or they are enjoying a lovely early evening on the porch, and you see many bats flying out of an area of the home.

  • If a single bat is found inside your home, the first step is to stay calm! Try to locate the bat and exclude it to a room by closing the door to space it is located (away from people and pets). If it is in the main room attempt and you don’t know how to remove or exclude it? Then give us a call to remove the bat. Please DO NOT try to capture the bat with bare hands!
  • If you think the bat has bitten you or another person or pet, and the bat is captured, we will take the bat to the health department (or other agency) for testing. If you caught the bat yourself, please wear thick gloves and place it in a secure container and give us a call immediately for assistance.
  • If the bat was found in a room with a young child or persons unable to know if they were bitten by the bat (sleeping or incapacitated persons), visit your doctor immediately or go to the Emergency Room. A bit from a bat sometimes cannot be felt due to their small mouth and teeth, and you want to make sure you are protecting yourself from rabies.

Our Bat Removal Inspection Process

During the inspection, we look for any openings that are small (or large) enough for a bat to enter and seal those gaps. Once the main entry point is located, we will install a one-way bat cone to allow any bats currently in the space to safely fly out at night. These bat cones do not allow the bat to re-enter the area, thus providing a humane exclusion. After a few days, typically 1-3 days, we will return and do another inspection to make sure all the bats have exited the space. We will then remove the bat cone and adequately seal the entry point. Please note we will not remove bats with non-lighted young. The young in these maternal colonies will be old enough to leave the space on the first of August.
