Bat Removal in Palm Bay
Today we started a job that will involve the removal (Exclusion) of HUNDREDS of bats from a home in Palm Bay. This was our second visit to the home, however our first actually doing work on it. There were so many bats, that I wasn’t sure that we could fix her problem. However after a good bat inspection, we came up with a plan, she had 4 different bat roost!
While this is the time of year, we get many bat removal calls from all over Brevard. Our “hot areas” are Palm Bay, Melbourne, Rockledge, Viera and Suntree. These area seem to have a lot of bat problems that need our help removing bats and bat guano.
Bat Feces, or guano, is highly toxic, and can cause many respiratory problems. It can even be lethal, (Center for Disease Controls website) this is why we always use a full face respirator, (N95 or N100 rating) when working on bat removal projects. Amatures should NOT attempt to remove bats at all, please call On Point Wildlife at 321-423-2713 or www.onpointwildlife.com for help. We will come out and give you a free estimate and even work with you on pricing to remove them from your home.
While bats do carry rabies (approx 6% of them according to Google). Their greater concern is their feces or guano. The smell is unmistakable and can be smelled from hundreds of yards away. Guano can rot wood and insulation, which will lead to may thousands of dollars in damage to any home. Especially homes that have bat problems in barrel tile roofs.
Bat House and Boxes
Bats play a very important part of our mosquito control (They can eat up to 3000 mosquitoes PER NIGHT!). and for the most part wont bother humans, that is, unless they have taken up residence in your home!!!
If you’re interested in keeping bats around, while limiting the damage the do to your roof, contact us. 321-423-2713. We are state licensed and will install a bat bot / house at your home from only $199, that includes the box and natural attractant!
While bate removal IS important, another option is bat relocation and making the best use of them, they’ve been around for thousands of years and aren’t going anywhere anytime soon!
