Bats in your Belleville home? How Skedaddle can help. skip to main content

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.

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 Belleville

 

Protecting your Belleville home from intrusive animal species can be a challenge, especially when it comes to the area’s bat population. These enterprising creatures can find their way inside your attic via ripped upstairs window screens or gaps in your roof’s tiles and flashing. Once they make themselves at home, removing them on your own can be dangerous; however, we at Skedaddle Humane Wildlife Control are ready to help you with this problem and offer you some information about these interesting animals.

Bats often find their way into your Belleville home to escape the elements and birth their pups in relative safety. They roost and nest in attics and behind walls, where it may be difficult to find. Calling us for bat removal in Belleville can help you and your family stay safe, as these animals may bite when cornered or handled. Our technicians will perform an inspection of your home and prepare for the animals’ removal, including:

  • Humane removal of adult bats
  • Removal of nesting and guano
  • Finding and blocking entry points

If our technicians find any bat pups, they may have to create a removal plan for the late summer months, once the babies are old enough to leave the roosting sites, as these animals assist with controlling Ontario’s insect population and are beneficial to the area’s ecosystem. While you probably do not want to share your Belleville home with them, learning more about bats may help you understand their habits and how to make your home an undesirable roosting site.

The bat species that live in and around Belleville live mostly on insects, which makes them useful and necessary for controlling mosquitos and other flying pests. They do not drink blood or fly into people’s hair, contrary to some myths and fears you may have. They are most active around dusk when they leave their roosts to find food. Females usually give birth in the early summer and care for the babies for about two months until they can fly on their own. They may also find their way into your home to hibernate safely over the winter.

Not only do bats help control the insect population in Belleville, but they are also one of the few mammals that assist with the pollination of flowers and trees. Most species in Ontario are protected, so calling us for bat removal can assist you with following local laws regarding their handling.

If you find bats sharing your Belleville home, keep your family safe and contact us today for information regarding our removal and inspection techniques.
