Humane Bat Removal Services – BAT EXCLUSION - BAT PROOFING - BAT CONTROL - BAT GUANO REMOVAL
PestAgon Wildlife Control is a FULL SERVICE BAT EXCLUDER. Exclusion is the ONLY effective solution for permanently removing bats from buildings. Trapping and relocating alone is ineffective since bats have excellent homing instincts and simply return, even when released at great distances. The use of pesticides against bats is illegal and counterproductive. Poisoning would greatly increase the likelihood of bats coming into contact with people and pets and is illegal. With over twenty years experience as a licensed, certified pest & wildlife contractor PestAgon Wildlife Control should be your first & last call. As a registered bat excluder with Bat Conservation International (BCI), we only use approved exclusion methods and materials.
Ultrasonic devices, chemical repellents, and smoke are not approved by BCI as effective methods to evict bats from buildings. In addition, some canned spray foam is not an approved sealant for cracks and holes in most situations. It is not only unattractive, but can result in the death of bats that come into contact with it. This product should never be used when bats are still present. Our service uses exclusion methods that ensure the safety of both bats and people.
What kind of bats do I have?
The brown bat is the most common house bat that roosts during the spring and summer in attics, barns, sheds, garages, walls, between roofs and ceilings, behind shutters and under eaves. Bats provide a useful service of controlling insect populations and are relatively harmless. However bats can be a serious health risk to you, your family or your employees. They are known carriers of rabies which, if left untreated, can cause great health issues or even death and bat droppings can lead to Histoplasmosis if inhaled. Bats can also cause severe damage to your home, business and property. They tend to roost in man-made structures because of similar characteristics to bats' natural habitats of caves and dark secluded places. Bats will take advantage of existing holes, vents or other gaps to gain entrance to your home or building and when they do their droppings can severely damage walls, insulation and siding as well as leave a very unpleasant odor behind.

Having to remove bat carcasses is a time consuming, costly and unnecessary process.
