Sioux City IA Bat Control
Contact Us Today To Schedule Your FREE Inspection!


Bats can be a stubborn and annoying pest to have hiding in your attic and other nooks and crannies of your home. Chances are, like most unwanted critters in your house, if you see one, there’s a lot more. While bats aren’t dangerous to humans and don’t try to attack, they should be removed safely and humanely to avoid further damage to your home, you, or the bats.

CP Bat Mitigation can do just that. We serve several different areas, such as Sioux City, IA, home of the Sergeant Floyd Monument.  We can handle your residential bat control needs in a professional, humane way so your home, you, and the bats will be safe. We also take measures to clean damaged surfaces and wood, even though some materials will need replacing.


If bats are living in your attic or another area of your home, you are probably wondering why they like your house so much and if you’re doing anything to attract them specifically. Relax; it’s not your fault. Bats like your house for the same reasons you do. It’s a warm, safe structure that allows them to roost.

While bats don’t mean any intentional harm to humans, their feces does pose a potential health risk. That’s just another reason why they should be removed from your home as soon as possible. Removing them can be a little tricky, however, if you don’t have much experience. Luckily for you (and the bats), we have over ten years of experience.

The way we remove bats safely is through exclusion devices. These contraptions allow the bats to leave but not come back once your home is sealed correctly. After they have gone and can’t return, they will find alternate places to live.

Once the control process is complete, the clean-up begins.

Guano is bat feces, and it can be hard to distinguish from other small rodents like rats and mice. One different characteristic is that it has more of a twisted or curved shape. Some materials can be vacuumed and cleaned with an enzyme-based cleaner that sanitizes the area. You might have to replace some components, such as insulation, that can sometimes be impossible to clean.

Due to the health risks involved in cleaning bat guano, you should have proper safety equipment to prevent the spread of dangerous materials. The goal is to get your home as clean as possible while eliminating the pheromones that will attract the bats again.

While having a bat flying around in your house can be frightening, it’s nothing to panic over. The bat isn’t trying to attack you; it’s just lost and trying to get out. CP Bat Mitigation can handle these issues as well, but removing that one bat is usually not the end of your problem. Where there’s one, there’s likely to be more.

If you have a fan, point it at the open area to encourage the bat to catch the breeze and fly out. We encourage you not to handle the bats yourself. Give us a call. We have the experience and will inspect your property for other signs of bats to prevent them from getting inside your home again.
