Bat Removal & Home Repairs:bats in house

You may only need bat exclusion work to remove bats and bat-proof your home. However, homes do need repair work from time to time, and while your home may look nothing like the one in this photo, if it need repairs, doing them may be necessary to remove bats permanently.

The great news is, we are a full service company!

We are highly qualified, experienced, fully licensed with the CSLB (License #991099).  Our company is insured and bonded.  We specialize in repairing bat damages! We first perform bat exclusion work (removing bats) and then if needed we can do any necessary remediation (clean-up) and repairs – from very small, to quite large!

This is very good news: Why? Many times the homeowner/s, hire contractors to do repairs / construction work and they have no knowledge of bats, or bat-proofing home. Many times bats are then trapped, and die in walls and ceiling areas. Or, the work is finished, but the home is not truly bat proof, and the owner continues to experience bat problems down the road. We are the full solution to any bat problem and for those in need of bat removal and bat-proofing.

The great thing is we guarantee our bat proofing and have the Construction experience needed to successfully repair your home!

Questions to consider, do you have:

  • Siding that is warped and allowing bat entry?
  • Fascia boards that are warped or missing allowing bats to live in and under?
  • Vent screening that is torn or missing allowing bats to have attic access?
  • Warped frames around windows that allow areas for bats?
  • End tiles, field tiles, or ridge caps that may need mortaring and bat exclusion?
  • Dry rot, woodpecker holes, etc., that give opportunistic bats an idea?
  • Doors not fitting snugly that give just enough room for bats to get in and out?
  • Roofing that needs replacement to end bat problems, or remediate previous ones?
  • Caulking that is missing or non-existent?
  • Bats that live between and /or under siding that was put over previous siding?

These are just a few of the common problems that we see and we can fix them!

Don’t suffer any longer:

Warehouse Bat Removal

Bats love warehouses, and here is why:

Bat Proofing Warehouse
The way a warehouse is designed can create a great environment for bats.  Warehouses are often structured like giant concrete caves, and bats are naturally drawn to the high ceilings, open design, and cave-like temperatures. With conditions that seem just right for making a home and forming a bat colony, warehouses can be a bat paradise.

The concrete tilt-up design with expansion joints along the walls make ideal places for bats to snuggle into. In addition, bats can use these to crawl up and access the roof and ceiling area. Many times bats like to sleep and hang out under the gutter systems that wrap around the outside of the warehouse.

Are bats accessing your commercial roll-up doors?

Most warehouses also have one or more roll-up doors for deliveries and loading. Such large doors make great entry points for bats. These doors are often opened by employees in the early morning hours when bats are coming back from their nightly expeditions, and these same doors are often open into the evening dusk hours which allows the bats to exit again. Add to that the problem of loose-fitting doors and you end up with a great access point for bats.

We can help you resolve these problems and we can install professional grade brush guards in a bat proofing manner.

Do you have Bat Guano (feces) in your warehouse?

Many warehouses store food items, and the presence of bat guano in the warehouse is simply unacceptable. Significant labor overhead is added by having to constantly sweep guano off of equipment and floors. Bat urine can cause etching on items that are stored in the warehouse.

“HOLY BUG INFESTATION, BATMAN!”

Did you know bats carry blood sucking bat bugs?

Bot on Roof
Every year we receive calls from homeowners who allow bats to co-exist in their houses many years because they like bats and feel the bats really are not causing a problem as far as they  can see.

Western Bat Specialists likes bats as well – and we are always happy to see people becoming more and more informed about how absolutely beneficial these little creatures are.  However, it is not beneficial to have bats colonizing in the attic and walls of your home.  Besides the matter of odor, and the growing deposits of guano and urine, bats carry an “ectoparasite” (a parasite that lives on the outside of the body, such as skin and hair) – the blood sucking bat bug.

Upon seeing the bat bug,  (approximately 2/8″ – 3/8″ in size) many people think it is a bed bug.  In fact, it is a close relative, and is indistinguishable to the naked eye.  Bat bugs feed on bats, and travel to new locations by clinging to their “bat mobile” as it flies about.  If the opportunity exists, it will also feed on humans.  It can survive more than a year without a meal!  When it feeds, it punctures the skin and will feed on the host for up to 15 minutes.  Hmm… this is not a bug that you really want setting up a nursery in your home!

We have received calls from folks plagued with bat bugs and they can be hard to eliminate.  They can move into mattresses, bedding, and bed frames – just like bed bugs.  They live in cracks and crevices, even drapery folds!  As with everything, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.  Let us exclude and bat-proof your home professionally and humanely – sooner rather than later.

Affordable Bat Removal

Bat removal is generally very affordable. At Western Bat Specialists we know that bat removal is something that most people have not figured into their budget!  Because of that, we would like to make your bat problems as easy to remedy as possible.

We have been known for years to be one of the most reasonably priced bat professionals around, and many times are told we were the best price quote that someone received for bat removal. We try to keep your costs down by coming to your home prepared to do the work on our first visit.  That way we can save the expense of an inspection fee.  We do need to charge an *inspection fee if you just want or need us to look at your home to determine the situation with your bats and what needs to be done to fix it.  However, if you allow us to do the work on that initial visit, we will waive the inspection fee and only charge for our work.  And you can be assured that we will not charge an exorbitant fee for the exclusion; in fact, ours are some of the most fairly priced fees in the business.  Your exclusion may be much less than you expected! Let us remove bats from your home or business. You will be happy that you used Western Bat Specialists!

Our customers also have the satisfaction of knowing they can call us in the future with a question or a need because we have been in the bat business for many years.

We also accept major credit cards.  If you like, even if your bat removal was very affordable, you can make payment arrangements with our office – without interest!

Bat problems rarely go away on their own.  So even if you are reluctant to schedule the work now, be aware that as time goes on the problem usually becomes a more costly one.  The bat colony will continue to grow, and can lead to odor issues with your home.

*If you would like a free estimate, before we come to your home, that can also be done!  We need for you to take very good pictures of your home and up-close pictures of the suspected problem areas and e-mail them to us.  We will get back to you promptly with an estimate to remedy your particular bat issue.  Please take 2 – 3 pictures standing on the street or away from your house in order to capture the whole house, it’s elevations and the terrain around it.  Then take some pictures of the problem bat areas as well as you can.  You do not need to get on a ladder.  Stand on the ground and use your zoom or simply get as close as you can.  Once you have the photos – you can upload them to us on our “Contact” form.

Can I use Bat Repellant?

Is There A Bat Repellant?

bat repellent

Western Bat Specialists offers the safe removal of bats without chemicals and sprays

It is not uncommon for bats to be found hanging under covered decks and porches.

They may be resting temporarily, or they might like it there and stay much longer.  Some folks aren’t too concerned, but for others, particularly if the bat is near the front door, their droppings (guano) can become a nuisance.  Homeowners, tire of sweeping guano away (see “Will Bat Guano Make Me Sick)”, and don’t like the idea that their nocturnal friend could accidentally fly in the house with the opening and closing of the door.

Is there is some sort of bat repellant that would encourage their bats to quit hanging there?

There are many so-called solutions floating around, most with limited success.  We have heard of home owners using balloons, streamers, Sonar, mothballs,  fake owls (bat’s natural predator) devices that emit noise, the list goes on without proven success.

Although we don’t know of any sure-fire 100% successful bat repellant, there is something that can be tried that seems to have much better success than any other.

At a hardware or pet store, or on the Internet, look for “powdered cat and/or dog repellant”, usually in a small canister.   (The Internet may prove to be a much easier way to find the repellant).  Do not get repellant in an aerosol form; it is not as successful.

After getting the powdered repellent, add water and make a strong “tea” out of it.  Put this repellent into a spray bottle.  When the bat or bats ARE NOT hanging in their spot (usually when they have left to hunt in the evening), spray this mixture around the area they hang.  They do not like the smell of this and that can be enough to encourage them to move on.  In addition, you will need to place a very bright spot light aimed up at he area the bats are hanging at.  Your porch light is not enough. Do this for about 3 to 4 nights in a row. Monitor for droppings (see “How Can I Tell If It Is a Mouse Dropping or Bat Guano?“), if they continue repeat the above steps.

We hope this method proves to be successful for you!

 As always, we want to humanely and safely work with our bat friends.  If you are unsure whether your bats are just hanging out, or whether they are actually living in the structure of your home, call us at 1-888-550-2287 (BATS) and we can make that determination.

If you have a lot of bats, you probably will need an expert in bat exclusion – and that is us! Give Western Bat Specialists a call – we are always happy to discuss bats with you!
