Attics

Bats prefer secluded dark spaces, and this is one of the reasons why attics are a popular destination in houses. They can infiltrate spaces through holes as small as a quarter. The other reason why attics are a perfect place for bats to settle is that the bat has a liking to stable temperatures and can shelter from the elements in cases of extreme heat or extreme cold.

Walls

Bats often find themselves between wall cavities. It is especially true for younger bats who can get trapped between the walls. Professional bat removal technicians need to
get involved to reach the bat while making sure it does not harm it. They can be found in between attic walls as well.

Pipes

Ventilation pipes are often an overlooked entry-point when it comes to all types of wildlife animals, especially, bats. Pipes are often exposed to the outside and thus offer a very easy access point to the flying creatures. Not only do pipes pose a threat, but also vents that are placed around your property such as wall vents but also chimneys. Special equipment is needed to access these places and to safely remove the bats.

Inspection

To understand the situation that our customers are in, we conduct an exterior inspection as well as an interior inspection when needed. This allows us to determine the exact location of the entry points that the bats use to get inside the property and effectively seal it. In most cases, bats will use one entry point to enter and exit the property. The technician will also make notes of additional weak points and will relay this information to the homeowner.

The Bat Cone

The technician will seal all the other entry points located during the initial inspection. After the main entry point is located, the technician will mount a cone-like device angled at a downward angle. Once the bat passes through the cone, it makes it impossible for the bat to re-enter due to the hard plastic material. The bat will then leave the area for good.

Exclusion

After it is determined that the bats vacated the property, the technicians will begin with the last step in the process, the exclusion. The One-Way-Door will be removed and the entry point will be sealed with flashing made out of enforced aluminum plates. This prevents other wildlife animals such as raccoons or squirrels from coming in and taking advantage of the weak spot.

Big Brown Bat

The Big Brown Bat is a protected species in Ontario. They can be recognized by their golden- brown fur, black wings, their short snout, and their pointy long ears. They grow up to about 13cm in length. They eat a steady diet of mostly insects like mealworms, cockroaches, beetles, and flies. The Big Brown Bat is a nocturnal creature meaning that it is inactive during the day and active during the night. One of the signs during nighttime can be rustles, screeches, and thumps indicating that they are active. The bats are often found in colonies and generally pose no threat. They hibernate during the colder months in the winter and give birth around spring. It is important to note that they cannot be removed from homes during specific times of the month. Call our customer service for more information.

Small Brown Bat

Just like its other counterpart, the Small Brown Bat is also a protected bat species in Ontario thus has certain limitations as to how and when to remove it. The Small Brown Bat can be recognized by its short snout golden, brown-reddish fur, black wings, and pointy long ears just like the Big Brown Bat. Although very similar in appearance, the Small Brown Bat just as the name implies is smaller in size and can measure up to 9 cm in length. It is also nocturnal and survives on a diet of various insects as well.

The Problem With Bats

Bat Odour

Bats are not so pleasant animals to have around. They are for the most part quite calm when
not agitated, but they have a reputation to turn any space that they live in into a true cesspool teeming with all sorts of bacteria and diseases. When you have bats, you do not need to see
them know they’re there, you can smell them from afar. They’re infamous for their rancid smells being a mixture of bat poop and urine. When you have bats removed make sure the
the smell goes away too!

Property Damage

Bats are incredibly destructive animals that can force homeowners to spend thousands of
dollars on repair and restoration. In severe cases entire insolation needs to be replaced and
reinstalled and floors have to be replaced again. Bat poop and urine can be incredibly corrosive
which speeds up the devastating process. The earlier you can get bats removed the better for
your wallet.

Health Concerns

Bats are capable of transferring rabies and are deemed a vector species of disease. This is because they carry these diseases which they can pass on without showing symptoms themselves. Make sure not to enter the space where you think the bats are. They may be provoked and will attack to defend their territory

Bat Concerns

Bats are wild animals and must be treated as a threat to safety. Do not attempt to remove them yourself and always keep a distance. They can transmit rabies. Properties that were occupied by bats must be sanitized to curb the possible spread of disease.
