Taking care of your bat problems in a humane and efficient manner.
BATS ARE OUR ONLY BUSINESS
I offer Professional Bat exclusion services. First I locate the points in the building where the bats are entering and exiting. These entry points can be as small as a dime. Then I seal every gap in the structure that a bat could use to enter the building except for the point of entry. A custom made one way exclusion system can then be strategically installed so that bats can leave but not return. Usually within 4 to 5 days all the bats will have vacated the building unharmed.
Guano in your home or business can be a health hazard as well as reducing the safety and value of your property. I offer complete guano removal and disinfectant services. Please see the page on Health Hazards for more information.

HOME & BUSINESS INSPECTIONS
One of my may services I provide is that of the "Personal Home or Business Inspection". Upon completion of the inspection, I can then provide you with the information specifically needed for a detailed estimate which is "FREE". Most inspections last from 1/2 hour to an hour depending on the extent of the situation.
Overall (Construction & Materials) The construction of a bat house may be recommended to some folks experiencing these fascinating flying mammals. The bat house is usually an independent pole structure which will be strategically located on the property. This structure is made from weatherized materials to ensure years of low to no maintenance effectiveness. Materials consist of pressurized lumber, cedar wood, coated screws and nails and custom cement base with a variety of sizes to fit your individual needs.
Health Hazards/Diseases: Bats can often be heard climbing in the walls, attics and floors of the homes where they live. They can be especially noisy and lively on hot days but will move around sometimes even in the winter. The bat dropping (guano and urine) produce a distinct odor that will also be more noticeable on hot days. Other more serious problems can and do develop.
Cockroaches, bat bugs, ticks, mites and fleas are common parasites around bat colonies and the associated bat droppings. Treating the house for these parasites is sometimes necessary and should be done by a Professional.
Histoplasmosis is a serious disease caused by breathing fungal mold spores that grow in dry guano or soil where the nitrogen-rich guano has dropped. Histoplasmosis can also be caused by chicken manure or starling droppings. This respiratory disease is contracted by breathing airborne spores when guano or infected soil is disturbed.
Histoplasmosis causes lesions on the lungs and general failure of the lungs. It is most damaging to young children and immune compromised adults.
Killing the fungus is a job for Professionals.
Rabies is probably the biggest fear people have of bats. Facts have shown that less than 1% of bats are infected with rabies but you cannot tell if the bat has rabies by looking at them. Bats rank 3rd, behind raccoons and skunks, as a cause for humans to get rabies. To help prevent rabies:
