A few things to be aware of…
Bats do not need much space to get into a house. A gap that can fit a pencil and is between 2″ to 3″ wide is enough of an opening and the fact that they can fly and climb means they can access some hard-to-reach areas.
While it is rare to actually see the bats while they are resting during the day it can happen. Inside gable vents, behind shutters, under second-story decks or chimney caps are just a few of these areas.
The feces, or guano, accumulates quickly with bats because they are often in groups. Guano can be incredibly hazardous to your health in the right conditions and its always advisable to have it removed by professionals if there is an excessive amount.
Guano is Important
As per the CDC – “Histoplasmosis is caused by Histoplasma, a fungus that lives in the soil, particularly where there’s a large amount of bird or bat poop. The infection ranges from mild to life-threatening. It can be misdiagnosed because its symptoms are similar to those of other illnesses. “
Guano removal is an important part of the Bat Removal process, however, please understand the greatest risk with guano exposure is during the removal process when the particulates are disturbed and go airborne. That is why the removal process isn’t cheap, we have to take all of the hazmat safety precautions so we stay safe!
We have included a link to the CDC website on this.

REQUIRED STEPS IN THE BAT REMOVAL PROCESS
An inspection must be performed to establish where the bats are, what needs to be excluded (sealed-up) to keep them out, and how much guano there is plus the cost of the clean-up. During the maternity season we have to get our eyes on the bats to make sure there aren’t any flightless babies.
One-step Exclusion –
If the bats are visible and every last one can be removed then they can go ahead and seal up the home with galvanized metal products & using galvanized screws. Do not allow anyone to “staple” the material. Squirrels can & will push through allowing bats in once again! FREE 10-year warranty with optional LIFETIME renewal!
Two-step Exclusion –
If the bats are NOT completely visible and unable to get them ALL removed, the technician will have to install an exclusion device (one-way valve) which allows the bats to go out but prevents them from coming back in. After a week or so, we have to make a return trip to take down the device and close off that final section. Then it is official – YOU ARE BAT-FREE!
