Get Rid Of Dangerous Bats With BigHeart Wildlife Removal
Bat control may not be the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the words "wildlife control in Cumming," but it's one of the most important aspects of wildlife control in our area because Georgia bat species can be much more than a nuisance. They can be a serious health threat.
The main problem with bats is their propensity to spread rabies. Bats are typically at the top of the list of the most common vectors of this deadly virus. They spread more rabies than raccoons, skunks, and most other small mammals that commonly infest your home. This is why a bite from a bat will nearly always necessitate painful and expensive rabies vaccines.
While bat bites are rare, even in infested homes, rabies is not the only danger bats pose. Their droppings are also a serious health hazard because they can contain a fungus called Histoplasma. The spores of this fungus cause histoplasmosis – a fungal disease that can cause serious symptoms.
Oftentimes, histoplasmosis symptoms mimic those of the common cold or flu. You may experience:
However, histoplasmosis can also cause lung damage, blood abnormalities, vision loss, and even death. If you have bat guano in your home, you are running the risk of being exposed to this illness, which is why bat control in Cumming is so vital. Unfortunately, bat control is often easier said than done.
Our Bat Control Process
Getting rid of bats once you already have an active infestation of them roosting in your attic or under your roof can be a huge hassle. Once bats set up shop and start breeding, they can prove very stubborn and resistant to efforts to chase them off.
There's also the danger of trying to get rid of bats on your own. Of course, when you're in close physical proximity to bats, you're a lot more likely to be bitten by one. Even if a bat shows no signs of rabies, you'll still need vaccines if one bites you in self-defense. You also run the risk of breathing in Histoplasma spores if you're entering areas where bats are roosting without the proper safety equipment. This is why it's best to leave bat control to the bat control specialists.
Here at BigHeart Wildlife Removal, we have all the tools and know-how to eliminate bats from your property. We start out by performing a thorough inspection of your property. Bats typically come in through gable vents or other attic openings, so we'll start there to find where they're accessing your home.
Then, we'll perform an initial treatment. We usually screen the exterior of your gable vents with hardware floss to prevent bat entry. Next, we use a bat funnel that allows the animals to leave but ensures they cannot re-enter your home. When the bats fly out at night to feed, they return home in the morning to find they cannot get inside. This encourages them to move on to another roosting location.
A week after our initial treatment, we like to come out to ensure all the animals are gone. Then, we'll remove the funnel and close off the hole where it was. After the infestation is eliminated, we can talk about sanitation options.
Bat infestations often require sanitation services because of guano buildup. It's best to allow our wildlife experts to come in with their safety gear and disinfectant supplies so that they can thoroughly clean the areas bats were using to roost. This way, you avoid any further exposure to hazardous fungal spores.
