Can an Exterminator Get Rid of Bats? - Critter Control Tampa

Get a Quick Quote

An animal infestation is always a headache to deal with –– whether it be a small, furry bat or a large, dark-eyed raccoon. In fact, bats can frequent your home with ease due to their small size and stature. Although an exterminator can get rid of bats, there are several other solutions that can safely and effectively remove these critters from your home for a long period of time.

Don’t Take Chances With Bats

It is important to be aware of a bat infestation in your home. Bats typically stay in an attic, as it offers a dark and secluded place away from predators. Some signs of a bat infestation are:

  • Scratching noises
  • A foul odor
  • Dark stains on the walls
  • Fluttering or screeching noises

While they don’t mean to make trouble, bats can cause health issues that may harm you and your pets. For example, bat bites transmit rabies, bat guano creates fungus, and bat contamination transfers histoplasmosis. There are plenty of ways to remove bats from your home, but keep in mind that some are more humane than others. Being aware of the signs and dangers of bat infestations can help you choose an effective, safe removal method.bat exterminator tampa

Don’t Settle for Short-Term Fixes

Bat extermination offers short-term removal, meaning that bats may only be gone for a short time. They may come back to your home if you don’t get to the root cause of the infestation. Extermination may also mean ineffective removal, in which not all the bats are actually removed. And if any bats are left behind, they can leave behind a foul odor once they get stuck in your home with no food or water.

In addition, bat exterminators may also use inhumane tactics for removal. For example, they may use traps that hurt the bats or separate mothers from their young. The key is to turn to wildlife management instead. This practice uses humane tactics through safe and effective methods, which include:

  • Inspection – Identifying entry points
  • Removal – Removing bats with care
  • Exclusion – Sealing entry points to prevent further bat infestations
  • Restoration – Cleaning up the area and creating long-term solutions
