Should I have a Professional Remove Bats from My Florida Home?

Yes, you should always have bats removed from your home by a licensed and highly trained bat removal professional.  At Rodent Solutions Inc., our entire staff has gone above and beyond the state requirements to also become NWCOA Bat Standards Certified.  Removing bats in a manner inconsistent with humane treatment can result in stiff fines and even jail time.   Keeping bats out of your home in the Sarasota & Bradenton area is critical to your health and your home. Bats will damage your home with their guano (feces). According to the CDC, bats are also the leading cause of rabies deaths in the United States. Call a professional to remove bats from your home.

A bat exclusion (sealing up your home) is the best way to prevent bats from gaining entry to your house. Bats only need a space as small as a dime to find their way into your roof or soffit. At Rodent Solutions, we have the experience to perform a professional bat exclusion on your home to prevent bats from gaining entry to even the tiniest areas. An experienced member of our bat removal team will inspect your home for any entry points, such as holes around the soffit, tile roofs, exhaust vents, shingles, carpentry, and chimney.

Bats are a protected species in Florida, and their removal must always be performed humanely. Florida takes it a step further. According to the FWC, bat removal can only occur between August 15 and April 15. If you have a bat infestation, our professional bat removal service can be performed near you only during that time. Because of these restrictions, you don’t want to wait to have our professional bat removal services from your Sarasota/Bradenton attic, soffit, or roof at a later date.

Another fact about bats is that their guano is highly acidic. Bat Guano can cause damage to both your roof as well as your paint. Damage to your home from bat feces is another reason you should have bats removed as soon as you notice them. Another common health risk when dealing with bats and their guano is histoplasmosis. Histoplasmosis is a fungal lung infection that can be spread by spores in bat feces. The CDC has a histoplasmosis page dedicated to the topic for more detailed information about this.

At Rodent Solutions, we have the professional skills, knowledge, and experience to eliminate bat infestations humanely and quickly. Once we have removed the bats, we can also clean up and decontaminate their guano to reduce the risks of diseases in the infested areas of your home.

Rodent Solutions are the bat removal specialists in Bradenton, Sarasota, Lakewood Ranch, and Parrish. Don’t leave this delicate situation unattended to anyone else. Contact us for a professional to remove bats from your home. We’ll resolve the problem for you and your family as soon as possible.
