Bat Control Problems

Identify Bats

Bats are very important to the environment. A single bat can eat 500 or more flying insects in a single night. Bats will enter homes in search of a safe roosting area. Critter Control of Des Moines can safely get rid of bats from your home or business. A bat control problem can be identified by the noises they will create inside of your home. Bats in the attic will make scratching noises. Their droppings will also create a foul odor in your home, which is another sign of bat control problems.

Bat Problems

Bat problems will occur when the bats are stuck inside of your home during the end of summer and beginning of fall, and if a large colony is roosting inside your home. Bats can live inside of a home or business for years. A colony will create major problems and messes. Typical bat damage will include urine stains and the collection of droppings. Another common complaint of bats is the noise: the scratching and crawling in attics and within walls, and their squeaking habits.

Getting Rid of Bats

Bats can get into homes through small openings. It can be very difficult to get rid of a bat as an untrained homeowner. Critter Control of Des Moines will get the bats out of your home and repair damages that have been done. Using toxicants to get rid of bats is illegal in the United States, as it can lead to direct contact with people and pets. Critter Control of Des Moines has professional and humane methods that can get the wildlife animals out of your home and keep them out!
