Humane Bat Removal Service in Louisiana & Mississippi

We provide Live Humane Eco-friendly Bat Removal for Louisiana & Mississippi and we are based in the Shreveport Bossier City Metropolitan Area.

Bats are classified as pests because of their living habits. When they find their ways into houses, they stay in secluded places such as the attic, chimney or maybe even stuck in an opening. The most common of these is a situation where people complain of having bats in their attic. This living condition is mainly due to the fact that bats are able to see in the dark. Bat droppings are also known to have very bad odor, which is not welcoming to our nostrils. Bat removal in Louisiana & Bat Removal in Mississippi should only be attempted by people who have the skills needed to get rid of them, like Wildlife Abatement.

Bats usually find their ways in the attic through small holes in parts of the roofing of a building. They go and stay there undetected. Someone once asked this funny question that “how do I know I have bats in my attic”? As easy as it might seem, bats can stay undetected in houses for as long as possible. Regular checks of the attics should be done for signs of bats which include stains caused by their urine and the pilling of guano (bat waste) in the attic. When any of these signs is detected, adequate bat control measures should be taken to rid that place of bats.

A lot of people have asked this question “how do I get rid of bats”? And, that’s because they have tried everything to rid their houses of bats but it doesn’t seem to be working out. It is not an easy task for someone just experiencing it for the first time. When you find a bat in your house, it may have entered through any of the places mentioned above. To remove it, don’t try capturing it, but separate it to one room and close other exits apart from the window leading outside. Also, turn down the light as they tend to cause partial blindness for bats, this is done so they would follow the only way out and leave the house.

Capturing bats is not the preferred removal option in Louisiana but if attempted it should not be done with bare hands because any touch from a bat can cause you to be sick. People who slept in a room, only to wake up to the presence of a bat there should ensure they are checked well for any scratches or bite from it. Bat removal should be done with care so your skin does not come in contact with it. This is done so as to avoid diseases such as rabies, which could be caused by coming in contact with bats or from their bites.

After ridding your house by of them by Bat Exclusion, attempts should be made to find out how the bat gained access into your house. Search places like the chimney, attic and garage for holes. Such holes should be closed to prevent bats from re-entering. Experience has shown that such holes are easy to detect at night with the aid of a beam light in such dark places. Bat droppings should also be cleaned out as their odor can be very offensive. Adequate bat control measures such as the use of door and window nets can be put in place to avoid any recurrence of such events.

We are available 24/7 and ready and on call for Advanced Bat Control and to remove any bats from the living space of your home. We will also do a thorough inspection of your home and attic and determine if it is a stray bat from outside or the most common reason for a bat in the home which is bats in the attic or bats in the walls which have found a way inside your home. We have an Emergency Response Trailer specifically outfitted for Bat Removal and Exclusion.

Bat Removal Frequently Asked Questions

1How safe is it to live in a home with bats?
Health department officials say it’s never safe to co-exist in a building with bats. The biggest problem with bats in any living structure is always the threat of rabies and the odor bat guano and urine leaves behind. It is very hard to even know if you were ever even bit by a bat because of their size and if you slept in a room where a live bat was found please contact your local health department for guidance and possible exposure to bat rabies. Bats with Rabies and West Nile Virus were confirmed by the CDC in Texarkana in Sept 2012. Read the story and see the video in the link in the footer of this page.
2What do I do if I have bats in my house?
Sometimes many learn they have bats in their home when they see one flying out of their house and they discovered bats exiting from the eave on the west side. One bat after another came out.

THERE ARE NO LONG-TERM BAT THAT ARE SAFE FOR YOU TO USE IN YOUR HOME. See, that was easy. Things worth doing ARE WORTH DOING RIGHT.

If the entire structure is not bat-proofed, the bats will enter the building from another location and you are back to square one) and CLEAN (Remove all bat guano and bat urine deposits if at all possible).

6How can I make bats leave my attic?

While some people will not believe this, I assure you it is true. I have been in many bat-infested attics before and found all the normal “Bat Repellant” type stuff – you know, moth balls in panty hose, boxes of mothballs, Electronic Ultrasonic sound emitter boxes, bottles of Listerine mouthwash, loud radios, bright lights, even Coyote Urine! But this one attic beat all those. As I was looking around, I saw an old style Milk Can. Now, if you are not familiar with what a “Milk Can” is, let me just say a metal can about 14″ in diameter and about 28″ tall. The Milk Can was sitting on two bricks in the attic. I just had to look in it and found old burned up rags inside. Yep, bats will make people desperate, that is a FACT! The previous residents had tried to SMOKE THE BATS OUT OF THE ATTIC!!! And, to answer your question, NO that didn’t work either. That’s why they finally called a pro!

Concerned about bats & rabies? If bats are in the belfry…call a Bat Removal Guy, bat removal company, bat removal specialist, nuisance bat control operator or wildlife abatement company. Scare tactics, mothballs and ultrasonic sound emitters do not work! The permanent solution is to call a professional bat control expert and have the bats removed and the guano removed for good.

7What if I have bats flying around in my house?
At times bats can find their way into your home and into the living area. We offer Emergency Bat Removal! Who removes bats on the weekend? We do!

Professional Bat Exclusions

We seal up homes from bats using Advanced Bat Control techniques. We remove bats from attic spaces and remove bats from walls. If you have bats in the walls, you are going to have a bat guano problem! We provide bat guano removal, clean up and odor removal. Call us if you are concerned about the health hazards associated with having bat guano in your attic.

Bat Exclusion is conducted by positioning one-way devices at key locations to allow bats to exit the structure. The one-way devices allow the bats to exit, but prevents them from re-entering.

Once the bat exclusion is complete, you can rest assured that your home will remain bat free and your family will no longer be at risk for contracting any of the diseases bats may carry.

Timing is critical for excluding bats. In the spring and summer, if a maternity colony has taken up residence, you will need to delay excluding the bats until August when the young are able to fly. If you exclude the adult bats while the young are flightless, the young bats will needlessly starve to death and may create an odor problem. Frantic mother bats, excluded from their young may mistakenly get into your living area when trying to find a way back to the roost to care for the pups.

Bat Exclusion Frequently Asked Questions

1Why do I have bats in my house?
The secret to getting rid of any bat problem is a detailed bat inspection of your home. The home needs to be inspected and repaired by a bat exclusion professional. Most homes built today are not built tight enough to keep out bats! If there is a gap large enough to insert a #2 pencil, you are vulnerable to intrusion by a bat colony!
2What exactly is Histoplasmosis?
The most dangerous thing about bat guano is histoplasmosis which is a fungus that can be in the bat guano. When the bat guano is disturbed the dust can be ingested in your lungs and cause histoplasmosis. If the guano is in a location that has the possibility of being disturbed or can get a breeze across it, more likely than not bat guano removal will be recommended. Following the bat guano removal, the affected area will be treated with disinfectant, sanitizer, viruside and possibly an insecticide to get rid of bat bugs, ticks and fleas all which can be associated with a bat infestation.
3Can I just call a Bat Exterminator?
Bat extermination is not the answer! Bats are usually protected so there is no such thing as a “legal” bat exterminator. The correct way for bat control is removing bats from my house and proper exclusion techniques and bat proofing. Every crack, hole or opening large enough for a bat must be sealed or you will likely get bats in your attic again.
4Do you trap and relocate the bats?
We perform LIVE Bat Removal! The bats are not trapped unless we need to catch a sample for testing. The bats can not return to your home because your home will be bat proofed by us. The bats will fly around for several days looking for a secondary entrance to your home. This is why it is imperative to have a bat professional conduct the bat exclusion! It would be a shame to get the bats out and perform the cleanup only to have the bats return later and you would have to start all over again wasting time and money! Proper bat proofing and sealing of the home is the solution to bat problems.
5I don't mind bats I just don't want them inside my house.
Can you remove the bats from my house and leave them on the property? Yes! With the addition of a bat house, you can have both. You still enjoy the benefits of having bats around your property but do not have to share your home with them! You need a properly constructed and located bat house for them to move into. We “seed” the bat house with the same bat guano that came out of your home so the bats can more easily adapt to the new structure.
6What about a Bat House?
We can install a bat house which may attract them when they can no longer gain access to your home. With our design, the bats have a large void to fill and can move around to adapt the changing temperatures. We design and install the house based on your individual needs. Don’t waste money on a bat box nailed to a tree; our design works and looks great!
7Can I just put Moth Balls in my attic to get rid of bats?
Do mothballs repel bats? Bats have both day and night roosting places. The day roosting place is for extended rest periods where the night roosting places are used for brief resting while eating and over the course of a night bats may rest more than once at different roosting locations. Some bat species use their night roosts to hunt for prey and in tropical regions bats species may use them to call potential mates. Bats may change roosts daily when threatened by predators or have different summer (possibly homes or attics) and winter roosting locations (caves). Mothballs do not work for permanent bat removal. In some cases they will move the bat from the very spot the mothballs are located but they will typically just scoot over a few inches and roost beside the mothballs. This is not the solution to the problem!
8What are bats even doing in my attic?
Bat roosts are chosen because of favorable protection against wind, temperature and moisture amounts in the roosting area. Do bats really hang upside down? Most bats roost hanging upside down and unlike humans have evolved to not have all the blood run to their heads. Bats guano smells so bad. Are the bats affected by the odor? Will bats abandon a roost if it smells too bad? Bats that accumulate in large groups like the Mexican free tailed bat have evolved so that they are not affected by highly dangerous levels of ammonia from the bat guano in caves from millions of bats roosting in places like Carlsbad Caverns New Mexico.

Can I Get Rabies From A Bat?

Rabies is transmitted when an infected bat bites a person. Bat bites may not be noticed because bat teeth are very tiny and razor sharp.

The only way bats can give you rabies is if you are bitten by one. Most bats don´t have rabies, but you can´t tell just by looking.

All wild animals play an important role in our environment. Some wild animals are more common to carry rabies. These animals include raccoon, skunk, fox, and bats. Animals that have hair or fur and produce milk are at risk to get or spread rabies. It is important not to approach, touch, feed, or relocate any wildlife and this includes finding a bat laying on the ground!

When an animal has rabies, its behavior can be very unpredictable. It may bite or scratch or lose its fear of people. It may seem real friendly. You can’t tell by looking at an animal if it has rabies or not, and it could pass it on to either you or to your pets, so we want you to remember not to feed wild animals and if you see an animal around your property, you should avoid it.
