Residential Bat Mitigation In Council Bluffs

Understandably, you might want to tackle your bat problems on your own, thinking it would be easier. However, the truth is that bats are dangerous to humans when provoked. In addition, it's hard to determine if all bats are out of the house without the proper training and resources.

Our team breaks down the residential bat control process into easily manageable steps, as follows:

  • Consultation: After receiving your call, we'll listen to your situation and get you scheduled for a visit from one of our bat mitigation representatives. During the visit, we'll provide on-site consultation, assessment, and a quote based on your situation.
  • Inspection: During the inspection, we'll identify how the bats are getting inside while installing bat exclusion devices. The devices ensure the bats can still leave but aren't able to get back inside.
  • Follow Up: We don't leave your results to chance. Instead, we return after a few weeks to ensure the bats are completely gone and have stayed that way. In addition, we'll remove the bat exclusion devices.

By doing things this way, we provide a humane method of removing bats from your home in compliance with applicable regulations and laws.

Council Bluffs' Guide To The Adorable Yet Dangerous Brown Bats

It's not a secret that brown bats are actually pretty cute compared to other invasive pests and animals. However, their adorable demeanor doesn't make it ok for them to live in your home. The main reason for this is that brown bats are dangerous to humans. Some examples of the dangers they pose include but aren't limited to:

  • Rabies: While not that common, it's a fact that a small number of bats may contract rabies and spread it through contact. Rabies is a serious condition that requires immediate medical attention.
  • Other diseases: Besides rabies, brown bats spread other serious diseases like histoplasmosis, a harmful lung disease transmitted by people inhaling the fungal spores in bat guano.
  • Attacks: Fortunately, brown bats aren't aggressive. However, they will attack in response to fear. When they feel threatened, brown bats are known to bite and scratch.
  • Property damage: While not a direct threat to you and your loved ones, property damage often occurs with bat infestations. Most of the damage comes from their urine and droppings (guano).
  • Other pests: Brown bats also carry other pests like ticks and fleas. These secondary pests are vectors and can transmit a wide range of diseases and pathogens.

Our team is trained, insured, and bonded to handle your bat control needs from start to finish. Say goodbye to dangerous brown bats in your home by working with our bat control specialists!

Bats: Identification, Facts, & Control For Council Bluffs Property Owners

Bats are common enough in nature and the media that most people can identify a bat without issue. However, there are specific traits to know about bats overall. Some things you should know include but aren't limited to:

  • Color variation: Bats range in color from tan to black.
  • Body: Bats are completely covered with hair and have large ears. The ears can detect objects and prey through echolocation.
  • Size: Adult bats weigh between one ounce and three pounds, depending on the species.
  • Wings: Bats possess two wings that consist of a double membrane. The membrane stretches across the elongated fingers and arm bones.

Bats are known as the only mammal capable of true flight. Part of their flying success is due to the bumps (Merkel cells) on their wings. These bumps help them sense airflow, allowing them to adjust their flight pattern.

If you notice animals that match the traits listed, you likely have a bat infestation on your hands. For bat control near you, reach out to our team for all your bat control needs.
