The Role Of Bat Control Professionals In The Omaha Community

When you think of bat control, what comes to mind? If you imagine a professional addressing the bats in your home as they would roaches or rats, you have the wrong idea. It's okay; you're not alone. Bat control is quite different. Do you know why bats are handled differently from other pests? You will after you read this short article. 

Today, we will introduce you to bats and share some interesting facts most people don't know about these night fliers. We'll also explain the problems with bat control strategies and discuss what it means to find bat droppings near your home or bats in attic spaces. You won't be a bat expert when you finish, but you'll be pretty darn close. If you read this article and have questions we don't address, remember that your CP Bat Mitigation team is here to provide answers, guidance, and professional bat control in Omaha. Feel free to contact us at any time. Our on-staff bat experts are happy to help.

When you take a walk at night and see dark shapes fluttering through the sky overhead, the last thing you're likely thinking about is how important bats are to our ecosystem. They're a bit creepy to most people, and we understand why you might think this. But, when you find signs of bats in the attic or around the exterior of your home, it is helpful to push away the notion that these mammals are creepy and consider their beneficial role in our ecosystem.

Why should I hire professionals to handle my bat infestation?

You likely know that bats are helpful to humans because they eat mosquitoes. But you may not realize the scope of their assistance to us. Bats offer an all-natural form of pest control that equates to billions of dollars in North America. We're sure you can agree that it is much better to have them around than to pay the price of managing swarms of mosquitoes with control materials alone.

On top of mosquitoes, bats help by controlling other insects that damage crops. It is much better to have bats patrolling over crop fields because it reduces the amount of control products needed to guard the crops without them. When crop producers don't have to spend money on pest control, we all feel that economically, as the savings generally pass to us, and we feel it when we go to the store and vegetables and fruit are less expensive. 

Another way bats are beneficial is that they offer a form of pollination called chiropterophily. While bees and other insects provide daytime pollination, bats are active in the evening and at night, pollinating plants that bloom in darkness. These plants are typically overlooked by bees and other daytime pollinators even when they're open during the day due to the color of their blooms. They often lack the vibrant colors of flowers that bloom in the daytime. By current estimates, bats are directly responsible for pollinating over five hundred plant species.

Let Our Experts Handle Your Bat Issue In A Safe and Humane Manner

When you have a bat problem on your property or in your home, it pays to contact a professional to address it because we understand how vital these animals are and will handle your issue gently. But, as we're sure you are aware, there is more to it than that. Bats are actually protected animals.

Bats are an essential component of the world's ecosystem, and they are dying off. There are several reasons for the reduction in bat populations. Since they eat insects in large quantities, there is a direct impact on them from the widespread use of pest control products, and as humans continue to conquer the land and build structures, woodland habitats are diminishing, and suitable roosts for bats are disappearing. These factors have led to government regulations.

What is the process like for handling a bat infestation problem?

Once we complete the outdoor inspection, we head inside to check the zone where the bats are roosting if these locations are accessible. Bats often roost in unfinished attic spaces or voids within attic walls, but they can move down into lower exterior walls as temperatures heat up outside and cause attics to become uncomfortable for the bats. Fortunately, our control methods do not require us to inspect indoor areas directly.

The first step in pest control for bats is often an application of exclusion work. We use professional-grade materials to address any openings that bats aren't using to enter and exit. By closing these, we force them to go in and out of the openings they're currently using and prevent more bats from getting in as we work to get your current bat residents out.

For the primary entry points, we install our patented exclusion devices. The design of these devices enables bats to exit safely and gently remove their means to get back inside after leaving the home. Forced to stay outdoors and unstressed by their eviction, the bats are comfortable to seek another suitable roosting location and continue to live happy and productive lives. That is good news for us because they will survive to eat mosquitoes and plant-damaging pests and pollinate the unique plants that require their assistance. 

Six to eight weeks after we apply your mitigation services, we return to perform an inspection and make sure everything went as planned. At this time, we remove the specialized exclusion device(s) and seal the final opening bats they can use to enter your home.

Never, in the entire process, do we create more holes. We only use existing holes for the installation of the exclusion devices. When we finish, you should have a bat-resistant exterior. Let's take a quick look at what this means for your home.

When you contact CP Bat Mitigation to address a bat infestation, we do more than evacuate those bats from your home. The methods we use work to mitigate bat problems well into the future. Bat exclusion services remain in place permanently. That means every time bats flutter past your home, there is no invitation to stay. They will have to find natural roosts or roosts inside your neighbor's home. In either case, they'll still be around to deal with mosquitoes and other pests; they just won't be using your home as their base of operations.

We can also check in from time to time. Things change on your property, and you may not realize when you have accidentally created an attractant for bats. A quick annual inspection can alert you when a potential problem is looming and help you avoid the cost of evacuating bats from your attic or walls. The simple tips we provide can make a big difference.
