West Virginia is home to the little brown bat and the big brown bat. This species of wildlife is one of the animals that we are most commonly called upon to control across the state of West Virginia. Bats can be found living behind siding and in attic eaves, soffits, chimneys and shutters throughout Charleston, Huntington, Summersville and surrounding communities. Bats also take up residence in barns and other outbuildings. If Bats can find a quarter-inch gap in a building, they will move inside!
Bats pose many significant health threats. Bats are well-known for carrying rabies, while bats living in an attic or crawlspace defecate and urinate, contaminating the insulation. These droppings (guano) can be infected with Histoplasma, a fungus that releases spores into the nearby air. Histoplasma presents a severe health risk to anyone who inhales it. If bats are discovered living in a building, bat waste removal must be performed in order to remove this harmful substance.
Bats like to use attics to rear their young. May is a prime time for young to be born. If you hear sounds like screeching or chirping from your house, you may have a nest of bats on your hands. Removal of young bats from an attic or chimney is a delicate procedure that should be professionally resolved to prevent bats from entering the home and endangering the occupants. If you suspect that you have bats in your house, call the wildlife professionals at AAAC Wildlife Removal for immediate assistance.
As soon as a bat is discovered in a building, bat removal should be initiated immediately. Bat removal should only be attempted by people who understand the danger this animal can present. Wildlife professionals understand this danger and have the tools and training to safely handle these very unique animals. At AAAC Wildlife Removal, our local professionals can manage your bat control problems humanely and thoroughly.
To remove nuisance bats, we do not perform bat trapping followed by bat relocation. Trapping bats is not necessary in almost all cases. And since bats play an important role in the ecosystem, we do not perform bat extermination or bat eradication. Also, the market has not yet seen the development of an effective bat repellant. Instead, we install a one-way door system and relocate the bat colonies. Relocating Bats is the environmentally friendly way to remove them. And not only does bat exclusion prevent harm to the bats, but it also ensures that bats never return!
Sometimes bats can be found lying on the ground. This potentially dangerous serious requires a wildlife professional to remove the bat and risk being bitten by the animal. Untrained persons should not attempt removing a bat in this situation. Never pick up a bat that is lying on the ground!
You may also find a dead bat in your attic or crawlspace. Bats occasionally die in unusual places–we’ve even found dead bats inside walls! Dead bats must be removed as quickly as possible, since leaving the bat will only aggravate the situation, causing further damage to your home and attracting other animals and insects. We will help you remove the animal and then deodorize the area, ensuring that you don’t have any more unwanted visitors.
