One thing that people don't realize is that bats are great for the environment. That's why we take extra care not to hurt any, and provide them with the best chance to relocate with our exit chutes.
Being a family-based business, we know what it's like to deal with big companies that only seem to care about your money. That's why we take the time to explain the whole process to our customers, and make sure that you're satisfied with the end product.
Having been dealing with bats for the past 12 years, we understand the habits and behaviors of bats. That's why we can make a quick and efficient inspection of your house and know exactly where the problem is, and deal with it promptly.
Bat removal & bat proofing can be a very daunting task, as many do-it-yourselfers realize halfway through. It may be explained in 5 steps, however there's a lot more work that goes into it. Depending on the size of the house, there could be 4, 8, 12, or more spots of entry! We first must inspect the structure and identify these spots. However, before we can seal up the spots we know the bats are using, we need to close up other holes first. Holes that bats could get into once we've closed up their main entry/exit (bats can get into anything the size of a dime, so we have to pay special attention to make sure we don't miss anything!). Once we're sure we've sealed up all of the smaller holes that bats could get into, we need to give them a way to get out. That's where the exit chutes come in. We install the exit shoots where we know the bats have been entering/exiting, because they are most familiar with that exit point and will use it, even if a foreign (to them) object is there. We leave the exit chutes up for a while to ensure all of the bats have left, come back and remove the chutes, and seal up the holes. Then the process is done!
