How To: Bat Control In San Diego
Bats in San Diego often make there homes in man made structures such as homes and commercial buildings. As we encroach on territory bats must find new places for the colonies to reside. Their determination and resilience to changing conditions makes getting rid of bats a specialized effort.
Bat control methods have changed from exterminators using poisons to control bats (it is actually illegal), to a more specialized industry of bat eviction, exclusion, and prevention. Methods are taken to conserve the bat populations because bats provide a much needed service of bug control including mosquitos. Our methods of bat removal and control are effective, professional and humane.
Bat control involves 3 steps to insure successful outcomes:
Step 1: We do an inspection of the home, indentifying the areas of entry the bats are using, and any potential areas they may use in the future. These areas include roofing tiles, eaves, fascia boards, attic vents, and the like.
Step 2: Once all the areas have been identified repairs are made to prevent any entry or exit by the bats. The only places left open are the main exit points. Exclusion devices such as nets, or devices known as “bat cones” are placed over the main exit points. These devices allow the bats to leave naturally but when they try to return the bats cannot.
Step 3: After all the bats have exited (after about 7 days ) the exclusion devices are taken down, and the areas are repaired. All areas are reinspected to insure that nothing has been compromised, and a limited warranty is given.
If during the inspection we find bat guano existing in the attic areas of the home. We always recommend cleaning the area, disinfecting, and replacing any damaged insulation. Bat guano can be hazardous to humans, and should always be treated with care.
