Has Your Dog Or Cat Been Bit?

You Have Holes in your roof that bats have been using for their personal entrance to their tashmahal hotel, that you just have Neglected to get rid of?

The #1 way that bats get into your home is through the front door. Usually on the back of your coat or in your hair. The scary thing is, you won't even know they are there. Once in bats are very good at hiding. They tend to hide behind curtains in the bedrooms.

Bats at least 50% of the time will enter your house through the Chimney. they'll fly down your chimney and either crawl in through your flu. Or they'll wind up in your basement where they can get into your duct work and walls and boom they're in your attic.

Or they just take the easy way any crawl in through your roof vent, simply. If you don't have your roof vents capped you should. Call us to book an appointment or to get a quote.

So if you spotted the bat on the main floor it is likely that it'll be hiding behind your appliances in the kitchen. Like your microwave or fridge. In the living room and dining room where you have wood that's where the bat will be.

We've found quite a few hiding up in books or behind thing on the ledge above your kitchen cupboards.They like heat and are drawn to it. I actually found one hanging from the side of a toaster once. Bats don't just fly they an crawl to. Which allows them to crawl through registers and grates. Bats can squeeze through a hole the size of your thumb.

That is why it costs so much to get rid of bats there is allot of work to it. Time consuming very high off of the ground, dangerous molds and parasites that we have to contend with never mind the not too happy bats. Everything has to be sealed. Anything that you can still your finger in needs to be:

•The contaminated areas outside of the house need to be decontaminated and cleaned before we're be able to apply Caulking | Mesh | Shingles | Flashing | Wood and or Siding Repairs.

•Once we have meshed and or repaired and applied the appropriate ONE-WAY-DOORS it is up to the bats. The bats will be able to fly out but they won't be able to get back in. Most of the time the first night after we've done the repairs, the bats leave.

•Sometimes...The bats won't all fly out all once. I can take a period of time for all of them to leave.

•Once we're sure that all of the bats are out. We will remove the one-way-doors and finish sealing and disinfecting.

•Then we need to examine your attic and assess it for damage.

•Due to people leaving things to get to their worst before they do something about them, Attic clean out is usually needed for bats 90% of the time. It will mean that your attic will need to be cleaned out, disinfected, contaminated bat urine soaked insulation, guano removed properly. If this step isn't done properly your entire family could get very sick. that is why it is best to leave bat removal and attic clean out to the professional to book an attic inspection.

Bats feed on animals so if you have a cat or dog, you need you give them a good look over. Or take them to the vet for an examination. The last thing you need is your pet, cat or dog getting rabies from the bat(s). Or worse the bat finds it's way into the bedrooms. Since they go to the quitest place it's usually one of the kids rooms. The saddest case was when we found the bats in the crib with the baby. They took they baby to the doctor and she had been bit, ouch.

Bat excreta, poop Causes Histoplasmosis which may become infectious disease if not treated you'll die from it. That's the last thing you need to expose your family to. Your home is supposed to be a safe place. If you've got a bat or bats in your house and do nothing you could order your coffin, now!
