GET RID OF BATS
J&R Nuisance Control performs Bat Solutions & Home Exclusion Services throughout Southern Indiana.
Bat removal and bat control in the United States is a more common problems that wildlife removal operators deal with on a daily basis. Bat removal and control is a more common problem found in the older cities of the United States.
J & R Nuisance Wildlife Control Inc. has been
trained through the National Wildlife Control Operator Association to professionally handle all of your bat removal and bat home exclusion problems . Bats are protected in most every state in the nation and have to be removed according to state rules and regulations. Bats become a problem because of their repetitive nature. They like to roost in the same areas every night; this is where the problem comes in. Bats are attracted to live in dwellings such as homes, buildings and older buildings such as churches and courthouses. We have a special bat in church page here. The constant build up of guano is one of the more common problems that humans encounter with bats being in buildings. With bat colony’s sometimes exceeding 2000 animals, the amount of bat guano that accumulates in a given area is incredible. Bats will cause insulation to become contaminated in attics.
To exclude bat from structures we use a device called a bat cone . This allows us to get the bats out without harming them and it keeps them from being able to get back in . Pretty cool if you have the Training. After they are out we seal their holes so no bats can get in in the future .
THERE IS A BAT IN MY HOUSE , WHAT DO I DO ?
SOMETIMES A BAT MAY GO OFF COURSE AND ACCIDENTALLY FIND THEIR WAY INTO A HOME. THIS IS NO CAUSE FOR ALARM. STAY CALM, AND FOLLOW THESE STEPS TO REMOVE THEM SAFELY AND HUMANELY. THE BAT MAY BE FIRST SEEN FLYING AROUND A ROOM EARLY IN THE EVENING, LANDING ON CURTAINS OR FURNITURE AND THEN TAKING FLIGHT AGAIN. REMAIN CALM AND KEEP PETS AND CHILDREN AWAY. THE BAT WILL TEND TO FLY IN A U-SHAPED PATH, FLYING HIGHER NEAR THE WALLS AND LOWER IN THE CENTER OF THE ROOM, SO KEEP NEAR A WALL. CLOSE INTERIOR DOORS AND GIVE THE BAT A WAY TO GET OUTSIDE. IF THE BAT DOESN'T EXIT ON THEIR OWN, IT IS BEST TO WAIT UNTIL THEY LAND TO TRY TO CATCH THEM. IMPORTANT: NEVER TRY TO HANDLE A BAT WITH YOUR BARE HANDS. WEAR THICK LEATHER OR SIMILAR WORK GLOVES—NOT COTTON. MOST BATS CAN EASILY BITE THROUGH COTTON. IF GLOVES ARE NOT AVAILABLE, YOU CAN CAPTURE A BAT IN A ROLLED-UP T-SHIRT OR SOMETHING OF SIMILAR MATERIAL. MAKE SURE THERE IS ENOUGH THICKNESS TO THE MATERIAL USED SO YOU WILL NOT BE BITTEN. (DON'T USE A TOWEL, AS THE BAT’S CLAWS MIGHT GET SNAGGED IN ITS LOOPS.) BATS WILL MOST LIKELY LAND SOMEWHERE THEY CAN HANG—BEHIND CURTAINS OR UPHOLSTERED FURNITURE, ON HANGING CLOTHES, OR IN HOUSE PLANTS. CAREFULLY PLACE A PLASTIC TUB OR SIMILAR CONTAINER OVER THEM. GENTLY WORK A PIECE OF CARDBOARD OR STIFF PAPER UNDER THE CONTAINER, TRAPPING THE BAT INSIDE. NOW YOU ARE READY TO RELEASE THE BAT OUTDOORS. BECAUSE MOST BATS CANNOT TAKE FLIGHT FROM THE GROUND, TILT THE CONTAINER, OR ALLOW THE BAT TO CLIMB A TREE TRUNK OR OTHER VERTICAL SURFACE.
IMPORTANT : IF THERE IS A POSSIBILITY THAT A BAT HAS BITTEN SOMEONE, FOR INSTANCE , IF THE BAT HAS BEEN OR COULD HAVE BEEN AROUND CHILDREN , SOMEONE THAT IS IMPAIRED OR A MENTALLY ILL PERSON , THE CENTERS FOR DISEASE CONTROL (CDC) RECOMMENDS THE BAT BE TESTED FOR RABIES. CONTACT YOUR LOCAL ANIMAL CONTROL AGENCY OR HEALTH DEPARTMENT ABOUT THIS. ALSO A GOOD IDEAL TO CONTACT YOUR FAMILY PHYSICIAN . DO NOT SWAT AT THE BAT TO KILL IT WHERE THE BAT'S HEAD COULD BE DAMAGED AS THIS COULD COMPLICATE RABIES TESTING .
