Bat Removal Services
Most customers have the same feelings about bats, they love them around the home, but don’t want them living in their homes. We offer bat removal services for residential and business owners in southeastern Wisconsin.
Why should you evict bats?
There is a good reason why bats aren’t wanted in the home. The biggest concern is rabies. Rabies is transmitted when an infected bat bites or scratches a person’s skin. Studies have shown that most bats don’t carry the rabies virus, but you can’t tell by just looking at it. Bats can also carry another disease known as Histoplasmosis. This is a respiratory disease caused by a fungal spores found in bat droppings.
Other concerns with bat colonies in the home include, loud noises and squealing at night, persistent odors, stains on walls, attics, and ceilings. Bat droppings in the attic can be a major concern. We highly recommend or require proper removal of droppings, clean and sanitize the contaminated areas.
There is a bat flying around in my home!
If you have seen a bat in your home, the best thing to do is trap it in an isolated room. You can place a towel under the door. Then call Advanced Wildlife Control to come and remove your bat!
I heard noises in the wall, what should I do?
Not all noises or loud squealing in your home are from bats. However, if you are hearing sounds in the attic, call us to schedule an appointment. We will determine what is making the sounds and where they are entering your home. Plus, we will explain how we can remove that animal and seal that entry point(s).

Anyone who is bitten or scratched by a bat must receive the rabies vaccination! Do not pick up a bat that is lying on the floor or on a wall. People sometimes assume that the bat is dead and most likely will get bit by the bat. Most of AWC’s customers that have been bit by a bat where trying to get rid of the bat by themselves. The vaccination can cost you $4,000 for the 7 shots! If a small child or an elderly adult has been exposed and they are unable to communicate to you, they should be given the shots as well. If the bat is captured it can be tested if it has rabies. We have captured large amount of bats but only a small quantity of them tested positive for rabies. Under no circumstance should you release a bat that has bitten or scratched you.
If you’re brave enough to attempt this by yourself, you can always try and leave a door open. But this doesn’t always work and unless you watch it fly out of your home. Otherwise, there isn’t a guarantee it left.
When larger colonies of small or large brown bats have inhabited your home, it may be necessary to have Advanced Wildlife Controls technicians perform an attic insulation clean out and sanitizing. During our initial inspection we will identify if your attic space needs to be cleaned out and properly sanitized to insure that no hazardous waste are left in your attic. We can remove the bat guano, contaminated insulation and sanitizing the attic space. After the insulation is removed we will then re-install new insulation into the attic, often times this procedure is covered under your home-owners insurance.
