Bat removal might sound funny to some people, but to others it’s no joke. Bat control can be a serious problem and it takes experienced professionals in bat management – to take care of such a problem efficiently and effectively.
Bats are very common and are very beneficial when it comes to controlling mosquitoes. Because insects often breed in water – especially mosquitoes — homes near lakes, ponds, and other bodies of water are likely to see more bats in the general area. Fortunately, Ford’s Hometown Services is one of the leading bat removal.
Bat control and bat exclusion starts with preventing bats from entering your home. Make sure all windows have screens, even small ones that you think aren’t important. Bats have a way of finding their way into a building and it’s surprising how small of an opening they can use. Even pencil eraser sized openings are a potential entry point for these flying rodents, especially near your roofline. Finding bat droppings is a good sign that you have a bat problem and it’s important to take steps for bat removal immediately.
Bats are a high risk source of obtaining rabies and viruses can easily be contracted from touching or breathing in their guano. Both can lead to serious health issues. So if you find bats in your home, make sure they have not come into contact with any people or animals. Don’t hesitate to begin bat removal and bat exclusion by contacting a licensed pest control specialist such as Ford’s.
Ford’s Hometown Services also offers other pest control services including:

Bat removal is not recommended as a first line of defense, as there are humane ways to evict them and keep in mind that they are environmentally-friendly allies in our fight against disease-carrying insects such as mosquitoes. Keep an eye out for their entrances, which must be sealed. After the exclusion work is performed, providing an external bat control alternative, such as hanging a bat box outdoors, is a good way to help sustain this beneficial animal.
