Bats are harmless creatures, but they can become an annoyance for residents when living in the attics and crawlspaces of Miami homes and businesses due to the potential damage to your home’s internal structure, exposure of bat guano, and a general fear of bats themselves.
Although bats are not aggressive towards humans, you should be concerned about the accumulation of their guano. Bat guano causes odor that can permeate throughout your entire home. It can also contaminate your attic insulation, not only reducing its effectiveness but spreading airborne fungus spores.
Steps You Can Take to Bat Control
Many factors are involved with performing successful removal and control bat procedures. You need to understand the bat’s behavior and lifestyle patterns as well as Florida State and federal laws surrounding bat handling, especially during maternity season.
If you detect signs of bats, do not try to remove the critters or clean up the area yourself. Instead, call Critter Control® of Miami for services relating to bat control, bat removal, and guano removal. Our trained technicians are versed in Florida wildlife laws, and they have the proper tools and expertise to handle all wildlife issues safely.
If you have a colony of bats living in your home or business, we will perform a live exclusion to allow the bats to safely exit without being able to re-enter. Once all bats have exited your home, we will then seal any openings within your property to keep critters from getting inside in the future.
Critter Control® of Miami understands the vital role bats play in our ecosystem, and the proper steps needed to keep you and your family safe. If you need assistance with bat removal or control or want to set up a free home inspection, call us today at 305-363-7136 or fill out a form online.
