ESTIMATE: We offer Free Estimates for bat exclusion. We will look on the outside of the home for potential bat entries. We will also look in the attic for guano, bat poop, and any other bat activity.
EXCLUSION: Bats are nearly impossible to find in the attic. They burrow into insulation, hang in the vents, or hide in the soffits. The most effective and proper way to get rid of bats from the home is exclusion. We will install one-way bat doors on the home to get the bats out of the attic. We use their natural entries and exits. We will seal up any spots where they could potentially get back in and out.
SEALING: We generally wait 3 weeks, or more, before we come back to remove our one-way bat doors. We will ensure that customers are not hearing bats or getting them in the home. We will seal up the spots where the one-way bat doors were so they cannot get back in.
WARRANTY: We offer a Two Year Warranty. If the customer suspects they still have bats within the two years of exclusion, we will come out at no extra charge. The only exclusion to this warranty is if the customer gets a new roof, as the roofers will tear out our seals on the roof. We will come out and seal up for a discounted rate if notified within 7 days of getting a new roof.
The two most common types of bats in the Sioux City area are the Little Brown Bat and the Big Brown Bat. The name can be deceiving, as these two types of bats are not large at all. These bats lifespan average 6.5 years. Bats are nocturnal, which is why they come out at dusk. Bats are a great animal to have around on the outside of your home since they feed on pests, but can cause a great deal of damage to attics and insulation.
Did you know that bats can fit into a space the size of your thumb? This makes the exclusion process more difficult than other rodents or pests.
Bats can hibernate or migrate during the winter months. This is why they find attics to live in. They will burrow into your insulation or into your walls to stay warm. You may hear scratching or screeching during the winter months.
The attic is where the bats will cause most of their damage. The odor of their guano (bat poop) and urine can be toxic and unpleasant. An individual could have upwards of 50 bats living in their attic where they are dropping feces and urine all over.
Bat guano can carry fungus that causes Histoplasmosis. It is caused by inhaling the spores of the fungus in bat guano. Chances of catching this disease are higher in individuals with a decreased immune system. Symptoms are similar to Pneumonia.
Bats may also carry rabies, although cases can be rare. This virus can be fatal. If you come into contact, i.e. scratch or bite, with a bat, contact your doctor immediately.
How to Cleanup
Siouxland Bat Company offers cleaning services. We use a viricide to deactivate the virus. We vacuum up the guano. We can also blow in insulation to replace the insulation that was removed.
