Bat Removal in Macon, Columbus, and South Georgia

Common Bats in Georgia

Two bats peeking out from between the slats of a gable vent before they were removed and sealed out of the house.

Bats are one of the most misunderstood of all wildlife commonly encountered in our Macon regional service area, and bat-removal is one of our most popular services, especially in the summer, when they're most active.

Bats are nocturnal flying mammals who eat insects, especially mosquitoes. They're not blind, but they do use echolocation (basically SONAR) to help them navigate at night. Because they eat insects, they're overwhelmingly beneficial and can only be controlled using removal and exclusion.

The main problem with bats is that they're not the cleanest of critters; and their guano (poop) creates an unhealthful condition when it piles up in attics and other places where bats roost. We've removed literally tons of guano from some serious rat jobs.

The problem with the guano (other than the obvious one, which is that it's, well, poop) is that it harbors a variety of bacterial, fungal, and possibly viral pathogens that can cause disease. These germs can get airborne and circulate into the inside of your home where the human folks live, especially if you have heating or air-conditioning equipment in the attic.

Bats also have a fairly high incidence of rabies; but because they rarely come in contact with humans, that's actually less of a health risk than the guano.

Finally, bats carry parasites that can be displaced and some of which can become human pests. One of these insects is the bat bug, a parasitic insect that's so similar to bed bugs that even entomologists have a hard time telling them apart. If they get into your home's living area they can make your life pretty miserable.

Bat Removal and Exclusion

The Macon regional office of Rid-A-Critter provides high-quality bat removal and bat-proofing services at residential and commercial buildings throughout our Greater Macon, Columbus, and South Georgia service areas. We provide bat removal and exclusion at homes, commercial, and industrial buildings, both big and small.

A "typical" bat removal and exclusion job includes the following:

Please note that guano removal and insulation replacement, if needed, are quoted separately from bat removal and exclusion.

Here are some randomly-selected pictures of some of the many bat control and bat-proofing jobs we've done in the Macon, Columbus, and South Georgia areas.

Please contact us if you need bats removed and sealed out of your home or business. We look forward to hearing from you.

Animal-control technicians doing bat removal at a Columbus, Georgia home are hoping to get the exterior work done before the rain starts. They'll be installing one-way check valve traps that will prevent bats from getting back into the attic after they leave for their nightly feeding flight.

The customer looked down and say a bat on the wooden deck. Then they looked up and saw the stains on the gable vent where the bats were getting into the attic of their Macon, Georgia home. A crew of bat-exclusion specialists are on their way to the house to take care of the problem.

A crew doing bat removal and exclusion in Columbus, Georgia found bats on the brick wall using a narrow gap between the soffit and the bricks to get into the attic. Like flying creatures in general, bats are very slim animals that can fit through very small gaps, which makes bat-proofing a house a challenging job that should be done by professionals.

A dome-shaped gap about three quarters of an inch high and three inches wide where the soffit vent screen was bunched up allowed bats into a house in Columbus, Georgia. Our bat-removal crew is installing a check-valve trap over the gap to prevent the bats from getting back into the attic when they return from their feeding flight.

We just did the final check on a Columbus, Georgia bat removal and exclusion job, and I'm happy to report that all the bats are out of the attic. We'll vacuum up the guano and replace the attic insulation this afternoon.

We'll be finishing up an Albany, Georgia bat removal and exclusion job this morning. For bat control, removal and exclusion are really the same work. The bats remove themselves when they leave the house to feed. We just seal them out so they can't get back inside when they return.

A pile of guano about two feet wide by three feet long was all the evidence our South Georgia crew needed that the attic of a house in Sylvester, Georgia needed bat removal. Bats are removed from homes and other buildings by sealing them out so they can't get back in after they feed. They remove themselves, as it were. We just lock the door behind them.
