    Bats are a marvelous thing to behold. They are the only mammals naturally built to fly. They come in many sizes, the flying fox species being the largest with a wingspan of about six inches. Some people think they’re cute while others think they are a horrendous sight to behold. There are many interesting things about bats but when they decide to settle in your property, the amusement in them seems to fade. At least for those of us who are blessed enough to have these creatures take up residence in our compound or worse, in our very houses.

    Bats are silent and thus scary. They make little scratchy noises and gosh! Does their guano leave it stained?  Yeah, this is living with bats. Not one of the most satisfying things to do. These among others are the many reasons why calls for bat removal have been on the rise in recent times. Luckily, help is just around the corner as a group of highly trained specialists have been at this task, ensuring your home is just as serene, safe and healthy to live in, as it should be. Free from the many outrages of bats. This is what Nuisance Wildlife Rangers does.

    Damage That Bats Do To Your Home Or Building

    Bats are most associated with Halloween and horror films, but they aren’t the scariest thing on the screen. Having a bat in your home, on the other hand, is totally different. Not only is it scary, but the amount of damage bats can do to your home and the health risk they pose makes them a real threat that will keep you up at night. What are these threats?

    Scratched Surface

    If you’ve ever gotten close to a still bat, you might notice how sharp their teeth and claws are. They’re the perfect weapons to help them catch the insects that make up their diet. That said, bats are also known to use them to damage your home and leave scratch marks. However, these critters don’t do it intentionally, and the scratch marks are usually the result of their hunting attempts. Regardless, you’ll soon find your bat-infested attic filled with scratch marks, and nobody wants that.

    The Spread of Diseases

    Yet scratches are the least of your concern as bats are notorious for carrying an abundance of diseases. Everything from SARS to Ebola has initially been caused by bats, but don’t worry as you won’t contract those diseases from the bats themselves. What you can be infected with, however, is rabies. Bats are one of the most common carriers of rabies, so having them in your home can pose a health risk to you and your family.

    Guano Problems

    One bat spells trouble, but a large group of bats brings in mayhem. With more bats, you can expect more diseases and more scratching. Not only that, but you can expect more feces to build up. While that may not seem all that bad, you have to realize that bat feces, also known as guano, is far more dangerous than rodent feces. It’ll quickly stink up your home and lead to walls being stained brown or yellow. If the bats aren’t cleared out soon enough, it’s not unheard of for the sheer weight of their guano to collapse drywalls and wreck pipes, thus costing you thousands of dollars in repairs.

    Nests in the Chimney

    Bats really like chimneys. These dark, claustrophobic holes naturally fit the bat’s needs, which is why it’s pretty common to find bats building their nests in chimneys. If a bat is up in its chimney nest, you could burn it alive and destroy its nest by simply turning on your fireplace. That may seem like a good thing at first, but the bat’s nest is flammable, so your whole home might soon go up in flames if the nest catches on fire. That’s why you should reconsider using your fireplace until after the pesky invaders are gone.

    Bats Be Gone

    After all you’ve read, you can tell that bats can cause plenty of damage to your home and pose serious health risks. That’s why you’re going to want to keep them as far away from your home as possible or to get rid of them the moment they show up. Don’t worry if you live in the Florida area, because Nuisance Wildlife Rangers have got you covered and can take care of any bats causing you trouble. They’re just a call away.

      Some FAQ's

      Bats are unusual creatures, they are tiny mammals and look like mice or rats with wings. These winged mammals are nocturnal creatures and love to roost in dark, secluded places during the day, while they go out in their numbers at night to hunt.

      In the wild, bats often roost in caves or tree cavities, but when they move into the big cities you will find them roosting in the roof, chimneys, attic, etc. bats in the attic can be a very big problem, because these animals can cause a lot of damage to a building.

      Bats are actually very shy animals and would rather avoid any encounter with humans, they are not aggressive, and it’s not in their nature to cause any form of trouble. But, these mammals have unfortunately earned a bad rep because of their love for attics and chimneys.

      Bats would get into the attic and create a lot of damage by leaving behind large amounts of urine and feces which are toxic and eat into the wood, therefore affecting the structural integrity of a building. Bats also are notorious for being noisy, if a large colony of bats is roosting in your attic expect to hear the flapping of wings, fluttering, or squeaking noises at odd hours, this is evidence that they are flying in and out at night in search of food.

      Experiencing some bat issues? You’re not alone. In fact, bats have become an increasingly common concern across the United States, with more and more homeowners discovering bats in their barns, attics, basements, or even their walls.

      Today, Nuisance Wildlife Rangers is going to show you how to safely remove a bat from inside the wall. We’ve had years of experience handling every type of wild animal imaginable, so trust us when we say, we’ve picked up a trick or two along the way.


      Well, there are a couple of problems with bats, actually. First, there’s the legal concern. You see, the United States views bats as a good animal, regardless of what you personally might think of them. And because of this, harming bats on your property can easily land you in some hot legal waters. This is why we believe it’s often best to call a professional wildlife removal company, if dealing with bats.

      Chances are, a wildlife removal company is already well-versed and up on all the laws and regulations concerning bats in your area. So that saves you hours of research, and puts you in capable hands.

      Now, another issue with bats, specifically bats in the walls, is that they often get stuck. You see, the reason why bats are inside your home to begin with is, they were looking for shelter to raise their young. Now, they tend to do this inside walls, except young bats aren’t very good at flying, which can cause them to become stuck, and die of thirst or starvation. This is bad news for you, since it will cause them to smell, attracting other critters like rodents, cockroaches, and so on.

      Young bats getting stuck is also a concern when you manage to get the mother bat out, as they may not be able to fly and leave the premises on their own, or feed themselves for that matter. Once again, it may be best to leave it up to a qualified wildlife removal company.


      If that’s not a good idea for you right now, you can try to remove bats from inside your house walls. We wouldn’t recommend attempting to handle the bats directly, as this can expose you to various diseases. Rather, you can encourage them to get out by making loud noises, or flashing bright lights. Because of their nocturnal nature and famed poor eyesight, bats aren’t too crazy about bright lights (understandably). So by turning on bright lights in your house, you might signal to them that your home is not a good fit for them.

      You can also attempt exclusion. This usually implies identifying the entrypoint that the bats used to get into the wall, in the first place. Now, more likely than not, the bats will be leaving at some point to look for food. An exclusion device mounted to the entry point will allow the bat to get out, but not to get back in because of the way it is built. However, this again raises the question of trapping baby bats inside the wall with no food or possibility to fend for themselves, so it might not be a good idea to attempt on your own.

      Bats can make quite a bit of noise (since they communicate through a complex pattern of chirping noises), as well as cause damage to your property. Their droppings (also referred to as guano) will expose you to a variety of bacteria, which is why you need to take action to remove the bats as soon as possible.

      If you are convinced that there are bats in your attic, the best course of action is to invite professional wildlife removal experts like Nuisance Wildlife Rangers. It is not safe for you to attempt DIY bat removal from the attic because you can hurt the animals in the process. Or even worse, get yourself hurt or expose yourself and your entire household to bat guano and risk contracting a serious respiratory disease, histoplasmosis.

      Bat guano and urine are toxic and contain pathogenic microorganisms that can cause diseases in both humans and animals. However, if you would like to attempt a removal process yourself, here are the steps to follow in removing bats from the attic.

      Conduct a thorough attic inspection

      Bats are very small animals, think of the typical house mice with wings. Because of their very small sizes, they are able to crawl into the attic through very small cracks and crevices in the walls, or roof. The first step towards dealing with a bat problem is to conduct a thorough inspection to identify all the holes through which the animals gain entry into the attic. Follow their greasy trail to discover how they crawl in and out of the attic.

      Carefully seal off all the holes

      Once you have successfully identified all the entire holes for these animals, next go ahead and seal every single one of them, except one. You will have to leave the major entry/exit hole.

      Install an exclusion device

      A one-way exclusion device is designed as a trap door that allows animals to successfully exit a place, and once they live they will be unable to get back in. Install a one-way exclusion door in the hole you left unsealed.

      Ensure that the device is properly installed to enable the animals to leave safely without getting stuck. If one bat gets stuck in it, it will prevent the others from leaving, which can be a major problem because if they are not able to quickly get out, they could all starve to death in your attic, and you don’t want that to happen.

      Seal up and clean up

      Once the bats are all gone, you will be left with an empty but messed-up attic. Now is your time to do a thorough clean-up and disinfection. Remember to wear the right protective gear for the clean-up to prevent contracting a deadly disease and spreading it to your family.

      The best approach to bat removal

      The safest and easiest way to get bats out of the attic is by bringing in experts to handle the exclusion. This will not only save you from a lot of stress, but everyone in your house will be safe from potential diseases associated with bat urine and guano.

      Bats are nocturnal creatures, meaning they only come out to hunt after dark, and they prefer living in isolated places.  These animals have been known to penetrate dwellings, particularly the upper levels of structures like chimneys, roofs, and attics. Bats in the chimney are never good news because they can cause significant property damage.

      If bats have indeed been spotted in your chimney, the safest option you have is to call experts, who are trained to deal with animals and will be able to effectively deal with the problem. We do not encourage DIY bat removal, but if you handle it yourself, follow these steps:

      Step 1: find out the entry points

      To get into your chimney, these animals find a hole somewhere in the structure. Bats crawl in from somewhere, and the key to removing them and keeping them to stay out is to figure out where they’re coming from. Bats may creep into relatively small cracks and gaps in buildings since they are such tiny creatures. It could be a hole in the roof, a fracture in the wall, or a window. Look for bat grease smears and use these to direct you to the spots where the bats are getting in from.

      Step 2: install a bat exclusion device

      The next step is to put in an exclusion device. A bat exclusion device is the most compassionate and safe technique to get rid of bats from your property. The exclusion device is designed to enable only escape, making it impossible for the animal to return inside after it has left. You would easily get bats to leave safely by installing an exclusion device on their main access point. Exclusion devices are available in pet stores, and if you can’t find one near you, you can order one online.

      Step 3: inspect the installation

      After the exclusion device has been installed, you must also check it on a regular basis to ensure that it has been used and that the bats have safely exited your structure. You should also double-check that the device was correctly placed and that no bats were trapped inside. Check the device every evening to catch a glimpse of bats flying out through it.

      Step 4: seal the entry points

      After all the bats have successfully exited the structure, remove the exclusion device and carefully close every opening or gap you can find. Do  your best to properly seal every hole with a good sealant. The bats will find their way back in if you don’t do a successful and complete job of sealing all the little openings in your building. One of the most essential factors of evicting animals is identifying and sealing all the gaps; it is simply what ensures the project’s success or failure. It’s absolutely important that you properly seal every hole.

      Step 5: clean & disinfect

      With the bats gone, it’s time to move for a complete cleaning and disinfection of the affected area to keep insects and infectious disease out. Cleaning and disinfection is absolutely essential in every bat removal project. The quantity of harmful guano and urine left behind by bats is one of the most visible hazards linked with bat infestation. Adult bats can defecate up to 30 times per day, and colonies of 10 to hundreds of bats are common. There would be a large amount of guano to clean up if a colony of ten bats lived in your chimney or attic for a few weeks. Now, with full protective gear and a potent fungicide, this cleanup must be done very carefully. Bat guano contains a fungus that causes serious respiratory sickness when inhaled.

      We do not recommend DIY bat removal due to the risk of disease caused by bat guano and the difficulty of eviction.
