ARE YOU STRUGGLING WITH PESKY BATS AROUND YOUR OMAHA HOME?
Why do we check the weather forecast in the morning before leaving the house for work or errands? We open the weather app or watch the local news to know what to expect for the day so we can plan accordingly. We like predictability. We find comfort when things occur according to plan or when we determine what will happen.
Most animals are somewhat predictable, but bats appear to be crazy when they fly. Because of their erratic flying patterns, people run for cover when bats pass overhead. In addition to their strange flight patterns, bats do not act like normal animals when they sleep. Instead of resting in a nest, they hang upside down in tree branches.
When they fly overhead, you may feel a little unsettled, but when they get into your house, they create a new level of anxiety. If you suspect bats are in your attic, you need the Omaha pest control company, CP Bat Mitigation, to come to your rescue. Over the last thirty years, our family-owned and operated business has relieved thousands of home and business owners of the stress from bats living in their locations. Through our proprietary mitigation process, we have become the leading bat mitigation service in the Central Midwest. So you no longer have to endure stress from bats on your property, please continue reading to learn more about them.
The best way to get rid of bats in the attic is to use CP Bat Mitigation. Our trained technicians will inspect your Omaha house for signs of bats and create a safe, effective strategy to alleviate the bat problem.
What are some of the dangers of bats living in your property?
Allowing bat control specialists to mitigate a bat infestation is wise because of the high levels of guano in the roosting area. Because of its high nitrogen, potassium, and phosphorus content, farmers and others prefer it over cow manure. However, the same qualities that make it an effective fertilizer also promote the growth of Histoplasma fungus. Guano easily crumbles and allows the fungal spores to circulate in the air. Although some people do not react when they breathe the spores, others develop a fever, fatigue, and coughing from histoplasmosis. The infection can become severe for individuals with a weakened immune system who contract histoplasmosis.
Another reason for using the bat control services near you from CP Bat Mitigation is to avoid bites. Bats do not randomly attack humans, but when they feel cornered or threatened, they will protect themselves and attempt to wound their perceived attackers. Perhaps their nocturnal nature, erratic flight patterns, and unusual sleeping position cause many people to assume all bats have rabies. However, only a small percentage of bats carry rabies, but if a bat bites you in self-defense, get a rabies test immediately.
When a bat infestation develops in a house, bat bugs may accompany them. Bed bugs and bat bugs are relatives that feed on blood for their nutritional needs. Fortunately, neither bat bugs nor bed bugs transmit disease, but they cause itchy, red, swollen bumps that can become infected if not treated properly. When you partner with CP Bat Mitigation to get rid of bats in the house, you need not worry about crawling around in the bat infestation area and exposing yourself to bat-bug bites.
What signs should I be looking for?
When you hear sounds in the middle of the night, your mind races to identify the cause of the noise. Sometimes, it is apparent that the racket is from wood creaking as a burst of air flows through ductwork when the heater starts or when a gust of wind hits your house, but when you rule out those causes, the candidates are rodents or wildlife. If scratching sounds resonate underneath the floor or inside walls, your issue is likely to be rats or mice, but if the noise is from the attic, it is probably roof rats, bats, raccoons, or squirrels. These signs of bats in the house will determine what culprit lurks above:
What does the process of bat removal involve?
CP Bat Mitigation offers proprietary bat pest control near you. Our process begins with a thorough inspection of your home to determine if bats are the source of your problem. If we see indications that bats are present, we will investigate to find the entry points and roosting hot spots. Once we know the extent of the infestation and develop a strategy, we consult the homeowner regarding the costs, warranty, and sanitization. Upon approval by the customer, we schedule an appointment to begin the process.
Our system involves bat-proofing your house by closing all existing entry points, except one or two, to stop bats from re-entering your Omaha home. The number of openings we do not seal depends upon the configuration. Next, we install our proprietary exclusion device on the unsealed entry point(s). This apparatus allows bats to exit the roosting area but cannot return. Bats are not persistent animals, nor do they attempt to create new openings, so after a short period, they stop trying to re-enter the house. A week after installation of the device(s), our technician returns to investigate the area to ensure all bats have exited the premises, remove the exclusion unit, seal the entry point, and begin the sanitation process.
CP Bat Mitigation provides bat control in Omaha to protect homeowners and humanely resolve bat problems.
Inspecting your home helps us identify where bats are in your house and how they got inside. We use this information to create a customized control plan for your home.
Our control process is unique to CP Bat Mitigation. It involves sealing entry points and installing an exclusion device to safely and humanely remove bats from your home.
We don’t stop working until your bat infestation is gone. We’ll follow up with you six to eight weeks after our initial service to make sure our plan is going as planned.
