Bats play a crucial role in our ecosystem. By regulating insect populations at night, they save our crops from destructive infestations. While bats are more than welcome to stay outside of our homes, a bat infestation on the inside can do significant damage. You may think that you can remove the bats yourself; however, it is always a safer option to contact professional help. Below are just a couple of reasons why you should let a professional handle your bat problem.
Bats Are a Protected Species
Under Florida state law, bats are declared a protected species, meaning it is illegal to kill or harm them. Seeking professional help avoids making a mistake that could cost you both financially and legally. Due to how critical they are to our environment, bats should never be trapped or killed. Experts can go to your home and remove the bats in a safe and humane way. Our professionals can also bat-proof your property and provide restoration and repair services for any bat damages that have occurred.
They Are Dangerous
Simply put, bats are dangerous. They carry with them many infectious diseases and illnesses such as rabies, salmonella, Leptospirosis, lice, and more. One single bite or the festering of their guano can spread disease into your blood stream and make you extremely sick.
Bats are also known to be aggressive if disturbed or if they feel threatened. If you are not completely sure how to handle a bat problem on your own, you are liable to get injured. Our professionals have the proper equipment, tools, and training to remove bats safely, without causing any further damage to your property.
