Bat Guano Cleanup
Wildlife Technicians are specially equipped and expertly trained to handle complete Bat Guano Cleanup and repairs associated with Bat damage. The best way to prevent health risks associated with Bat guano is to avoid situations where the droppings and items contaminated by the droppings can be inhaled. Bat droppings (guano) are highly toxic so one of the key protection items is a face mask that will shield you from airborne particles that can potentially make you and your family sick.
Never attempt to handle Bat dropping cleanup with a regular household vacuum. Wildlife Technicans are equipped with special high powered vacuums that are able to handle bat droppings. The use of a special high powered vacuum is highly beneficial as it eliminates the dust exposure that can happen when bags tear accidentally or containers break during transfer to the ground. During the bat cleanup process, it is recommended that only authorized personnel be present.
Bats in Attic
Bats are very small animals that can fit into tight spaces and can hinder the day to day tasks in your home. Bats that are present in the attic area almost always leave a large amount of Bat guano that can be difficult and hazardous to your family. Bats and their droppings can carry spores for histoplasmosis, which is a fungus that can cause respiratory problems. This can become severely problematic in cases dealing with the elderly, those with immunity disorders, and the very young. If you have bats in the attic, the bat droppings can seep into your insulation or dry wall where the spores can contaminate the living areas of your house. Symptoms are fever, dry cough, headaches, encephalopathy, and in rare cases death.
Bats in Chimney
Bats can make their way through tiny crevices in your home, especially in the chimney of your home. As the months get colder, many of our customers come in contact with Bats in their chimney when they want to light a fire. Do NOT start a fire to ride your chimney of bats! It is illegal and inhumane to kill a Bat and a fire will most likely make the Bats fly down the chimney instead of up and out. The most important thing to remember is when your chimney is not in use; make sure you close the damper. This will make it harder for Bats and other wildlife to enter your property through the chimney.
Special equipment should be used when dealing with bats to ensure the excrement is handled the correct way to keep the structural integrity of your home or business. Bat droppings can severely damage the insulation, wood, sheet rock, or particle board of your ceiling or attic causing the structure to collapse. This can lead to very expensive repairs.
If a Bat Removal company comes to handle a situation and is not equipped with the proper tools and protection nor are they licensed, it is highly recommended that you hire someone that knows how to correctly get rid of Bats and Bat waste.
