When you find bats in your home, your first instinct may be to break out the tennis racket and start swinging. If we’ve learned anything during our years of bat removal, though, it’s that swinging anything at bats won’t accomplish anything – except maybe to infuriate the bats. Rather than spastically slashing your racket through the air or trying to put a cup over the “sleeping” bat in the corner of your attic, call the bat removal experts at EcoTech. As Minneapolis, Minnesota bat exterminators, we have the experience needed to safely remove bats from your home without all of the baseball bat swinging, profanities, and ducking to the floor.
Repairing Structural Damage Caused by Bats
Most homeowners know that bats can carry rabies like most wild animals, but not everyone thinks of the structural damage bats can cause in your home – not to mention the smells they leave behind. If you have one bat or even a colony of bats, your home can sustain serious damage. It won’t be damage caused by nesting or breaking into your home, as other wild animals might cause, but it will be remnants of bat urine and droppings that collect in bats’ living areas and leave behind damage to your drywall, insulation, wood, and other surfaces. In severe cases, bat urine can become so concentrated that it can leak through ceilings, causing damage to multiple rooms in your home. Before this can happen, call in the bat removal experts so that you can put an end to your pest problem before your unwanted bats cause damage to your home.
Preventing Bat Infestations in Your Home
Unfortunately, bats are some of the most difficult wild animal pests to keep out of your home because they’re so small and can squeeze through exceptionally tight spaces. Bats need less than a square inch of space to get into your home, so if you have any gaps at all in your shingles, foundation, siding – anything – you could easily be looking at a bat infestation if you’re not careful. Rather than just waiting and hoping that no bats move into your home through the cracks that “they probably won’t find,” take precautions, because we can guarantee that if a bat is looking for somewhere to crash, it will find a way into your home through any cracks it can. If you find small crevices that you think bats might be using to enter your home, give us a call, and we’ll seal every entrance we can find once we’ve made sure all the bats are removed from your home.
