Bats play a vital role in the local Tampa ecosystem, but that doesn’t mean they have a place in our homes and businesses. Florida law protects bats against being killed or forcibly removed, and bat removal is not permitted during certain times of year when their babies are being raised. Because of these issues, it’s important to trust the experts at Critter Control® to remove bats safely and legally.
Are Bats in Your Home?
If you’ve begun to notice a foul odor emanating from your attic, it could be bats. Bat feces, or guano, collects in large piles underneath where bats nest and can stink up your entire home. Additionally, if guano is stepped on or disturbed, it can send dangerous fungal spores into the air which are known to carry infectious disease.
With the strict regulations surrounding bat removal, it is always best to let a professional, like those at Critter Control®, remove them for you. With our four-step process that has been refined over decades, we can safely remove any bats from your home.
- Inspection – With your home consultation, we’ll send out a bat removal expert to determine the location and severity of the infestation.
- Removal – Once we create a plan that works for your needs, our specialist will implement legal exclusion techniques to encourage the bats to leave your attic.
- Restoration – Once all the bats are out of your attic, we’ll assess and repair any damages they may have made in your home, including re-insulating your attic if necessary.
- Exclusion – Once every last bat has left, we’ll make sure the source of the infestation is blocked off by sealing any entry or exit points the bats used while visiting.
At Critter Control® of Tampa, our priority is to get your home free from infestation while keeping the bats safe. We take every measure to exclude bats to ensure the health of our ecosystem safely. To schedule a consultation, call us today at 813.948.0870.
