With a location in Pottawattamie County, the city of Council Bluffs is the most populous in Southwest Iowa. Residents enjoy a low cost of living, proximity to major cities, and activities appropriate for all age groups. As such, the city keeps growing in popularity as the years go by.

Unfortunately, the city is also known for its bat problems. While bats benefit the environment, they don't belong inside your home, making it necessary to invest in bat control in Council Bluffs.

At CP Bat Mitigation, we take your bat concerns seriously. Left unchecked, you and your loved ones can experience a range of problems that stem from a bat infestation. Worse, bats are difficult to remove, and there are often various laws in place to protect them.

Our team is insured and bonded, so you know you're getting the best results possible with our bat mitigation and exclusion services. Our bat control specialists will act with care and urgency, ensuring you remain safe while saying goodbye to the bats for good.

Don't let your home become overrun by an out-of-control bat population. Reach out to our team today to start living bat-free in no time!

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.


The last thing you need affecting your place of business is a bat infestation. Bats are known to leave droppings and transmit various diseases, making it a priority to safely and quickly remove them from the premises. Fortunately, our commercial bat control services are perfect and will give you what you need. Our process is the same no matter what:

  • Consultation: You share with us what you're experiencing, and we put you on the schedule for a visit. During the visit, we'll provide an on-site consultation, assessment, and quote centered on your situation.
  • Inspection: Without disrupting your operations, we'll install bat exclusion devices while determining the extent of your infestation. With these devices, the bats can leave but are unable to return.
  • Follow Up: We don't take the results we promise you for granted. That's why we come back after a few weeks to ensure the bats are gone and haven't come back. We'll also remove the bat exclusion devices at that time.

Our process is fully compliant and done in a manner that removes the bats without harming them. In addition, your customers and employees will be happy to stay.


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.

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. We're insured and bonded for bat mitigation. More importantly, we have the resources and training to quickly get you back to a bat-free existence.

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.
