Don’t let Bats Drive you Batty!

Aug 13, 2020 | Bats

Are Nuisance Bats and Birds Driving You, Well, Batty? Are bats the latest unwelcome visitor in your home or office building? Are bat and bird droppings causing you to worry about your health, your kids’ health, even your pets’ health? Are these bats and birds damaging your property?

Bird and Bat Droppings: Health Hazards Waiting to Happen. You’re right to be concerned about the problems caused by bird and bat droppings. Besides the unsightly mess, droppings cause property damage and pose health risks. Pigeon and bat droppings contain uric acid. This acid eats into the surface it drops on. Painted surfaces, canvas awnings, signs, and other similar materials are most likely to be affected. Dried droppings contain many fungal and viral diseases that pose health risks as well (think of your kids and pets playing in the backyard). Histoplasmosis, encephalitis, meningitis, and salmonella are just a few of the common viral and bacterial diseases that have been associated with bird droppings.

Ford’s to the Rescue: Safe and Effective Bird and Bat Removal When You Need It Most. At Ford’s Hometown Services, we tailor a bird or bat exclusion program to meet your specific needs. We always use the latest and most effective humane bird and bat removal methods—methods that work for your home or office building over the long term.

From a few birds and bats to large habitations, we have the expertise to capture and exclude birds, bats, and other wildlife nuisances from homes and commercial buildings.
