Bat Removal in the Macon, Georgia Area

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, Georgia service area. There literally is no job too big nor too small.

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

Tim just installed a one-way bat trap on the attic gable vent as part of a bat removal and exclusion job in Williamson, Georgia. The traps are used to prevent the bats from getting back into the house after they leave to feed. Because they are beneficial animals, bat control is accomplished solely by exclusion.
