If you’ve seen bats flying around your house, you may have a colony of bats living in your attic. Bat removal is not an easy task and should only be performed by a professional. During our initial bat inspection, our technicians will examine your attic and roof in search of any signs of bat activity. If there is a bat colony, we considerably recommend a bat exclusion to rid your home of bats. Our technician will write up a FREE quote for the bat exclusion.
Bats only need a half-inch of space to gain entrance into an attic. We will seal up your entire roofline and other potential entry points. Bats are protected in the state of Wisconsin. Therefore, we will install a one-way bat valve at 1-2 open entry points to allow bats to leave your attic and prevent them from re-entering naturally.
Prevention is our #1 focus when it comes to bat control. Once we have determined that all bats have left your attic, we will seal up the final entry points to prevent future bats from entering your home or attic.
A colony of bats will contaminate your attic insulation with piles of guano, which is a major health concern. Our technicians can provide a clean up of any feces or messes left behind. In some more extensive cases, an entire cleanout and/or re-insulation service may be required.
Our customers are our #1 priority! At Advanced Wildlife Control, we want to make sure your bat problems are resolved in a timely manner. Therefore, our AWC professionals can usually be out at your property on the same day when you call or the following day.
