Grand Rapids, MI Attic Bat Removal Services
Why get rid of bats in Grand Rapids, MI? Bats are nature’s version of pest control and one bat can consume up to 1,000 mosquitoes in an hour. Unfortunately, bats will sometimes take up residence in your attic and only need a 1/4″ opening in a gable vent, a roof opening, or even an area where caulking was not applied properly. Although bats are extremely beneficial, they also present the danger of rabies and histoplasmosis. Both of which can affect humans and pets. If you hear scratching in the ceiling, clicking noises in the attic, or see droppings around your home, there’s a good chance you have bats. If there is bat droppings in the attic, you definitely have bats. Call us today and we’ll start the process to “get rid of your bats”.
IS BAT POOP DANGEROUS?
Bat poop or “guano” is unfortunately something that bats will leave everywhere and it should be professional removed from your attic. Histoplasmosis or “Cave Disease” has been linked to bird and bat droppings containing the histoplasma capsulatum fungus. The fungus exists throughout the world but is most common in North & Central America. Caution must be taken when cleaning up bat droppings to ensure the fungus (if present) is not disturbed causing the spores to become airborne. The infection can cause a lung disease similar to pneumonia in certain individuals.

WHAT DO BATS SOUND LIKE?
Homeowners and businesses will likely hear bats at night or in the early morning hours when the bats are actively in search of food.As bats are leaving their roost, sometimes you’ll hear flapping or a slight tapping of their wings which may sound like scratching on the ceiling. Bats make sounds the human ear cannot hear and therefore we sometimes hear a “chirp”.If you are hearing noises in the attic at night or early morning, there’s a good chance you have bats. Look for gaps around your roof lines and then watch closely at dusk or early in the morning. Bats will typically leave and return in groups.

Grand Rapids, Michigan Bat Exclusion Service
HOW TO GET RID OF BATS?
We use a process known as “Bat Exclusion” which is a one-way device that allows bats to exit but prevents them from re-entering. This allows us to remove the bats in a safe & humane manner.
- First, we’ll determine where the bats are getting in. It doesn’t take much more than a 1/4″ gap anywhere around your home or building.
- Second, we’ll seal off other areas of your structure which could provide an alternative entry point. Chimney flashings, fascia board issues, and gaps around gables are the first we check. Bats leave lots of dropping and oils from their body will sometimes stain their entry path into your home.
- Third, we’ll install a one-way exit door so the bats can easily leave but not return.
- Last, we’ll clean-up all of the droppings in the attic and replace insulation as required.
