BAT REMOVAL PROCESS

ASSESS AND REMOVE

Assess and Remove

The key to removing bats from your home is determining their entry points. Bats can enter through small openings and leave very little trace behind. Our expert technicians will identify all the entry points and evict the colony humanely using one-way doors that allow the bats to leave for food but prevent their re-entry.

Depending on the size of the colony and how long they’ve been living in the home there could be a large mess to clean up. Our wildlife technicians will thoroughly remove bat guano and disinfect the space to eliminate any harmful traces left behind.

PREVENT AND PROTECT

Our wildlife technicians will provide a full, comprehensive protection plan against any future bat infestations. This would include sealing all the tiny gaps and openings around your home’s roofline to keep bats out.

 


Bats in Barrie

 

Bats can be a serious issue in the Barrie area. If you notice bats in your home or business, you should address the problem quickly. Bats can carry disease and may be a threat to your loved ones, pets and home. With Skedaddle Humane Wildlife Control of Barrie, you can be confident that the issue will be addressed promptly and reliably.

In Ontario, we have several species of bats including the hoary bat, big brown bat, silver-haired bat, eastern red bat, tricolored bat, the little brown myotis bat, the eastern small-footed myotis and the northern long-earned myotis.

These creatures are amazing and can be quite fascinating to watch. Nonetheless, you don’t want them in your home.
The most significant risk from bats is likely rabies. Although less common than you may think, this is always a risk that should be taken seriously. They can also carry parasites and other pathogens. If they are living in your home, their droppings and nests can be vectors for disease. In short, you don’t want to leave them unaddressed.

Don’t wait to take on your wildlife problem. Although bats and other animals can be cute, they can also be dangerous and belong in their natural habitats.

Bat Facts

FACT:

While bats are not aggressive animals, they are common hosts for rabies. A sick or healthy bat may bite when trapped or mishandled.

While gliders and flying squirrels don’t actually fly — they glide — bats do truly fly. They are the only mammal capable of this gravity-defying feat.

FACT:

White-nose syndrome has killed more than 6.7 million bats in North America since it was first discovered in 2006. Its victims are primarily bats species that hibernate in abandoned mines or caves where the fatal fungus that leads to the syndrome is found.

Insectivorous bats have voracious appetites. A small-sized bat can eat up to 1,000 insects an hour, while a nursing female eats 4,000 or more in a single night.
