Bats & bat removal

Bats are vital to controlling insects pests. If we lose our bat species, we increase the demand for chemical pesticides, jeopardizing whole ecosystems of other animal and plant species, and harming human economies. On average, one bat will consume 2,000 flying insects per night.

Bats pollinate plants and disperse seeds. More than 300 plant species in the tropics alone rely on pollinating and seed dispersal of bats. These bat-reliant plants provide more than 450 economically important products, valued in the hundred of millions of dollars annually.

Tropical bats are key elements in rain forest ecosystems. In the wild, important agricultural plants from bananas, breadfruit, and mangoes, to cashews, dates and figs rely on bats for pollination and seed dispersal. Like most mammals, bats can contact rabies; less than ½ of 1 % of bats ever get the disease and those that do normally bite only in self defense and pose little threat to people who do not handle them. During the past 50 years, only 48 people are believed to have contracted rabies from bats. The fear of rabies from bats is far disproportionate to the actual risk.

Over 50 Bats are nesting on this screen

Approximately 50 bats hanging inside a gable vent inside an attic, the screen is falling from the weight of the bats. Directly below the bats, you will always find piles of guano (bat fecal matter). This is some of the best organic fertilizer you will ever get.

Bats in the attic

Normally by the time you get this many bats, a bat bug problem has also developed. Batbugs are cousins to bedbugs (bloodsuckers) and act very similar. Once bat removal is accomplished and the bats are relocated, batbugs will begin to roam in search of a host unless some preventative pest control is done.

Bats - close up

Bats have very white teeth and make chirping sounds to communicate.

During Bat Infestation

BEFORE: As dust and pollution settle on the gable vent boards, rub marks are produced by the oily skin of the bats as they crawl over edges, mixing the oil with the dust and pollution. The small dark items on the siding below the gable vents are droppings that have fallen outside instead of inside. From behind this gable vent, 11 ½ pounds of guano were removed and this attic did have batbugs.

After Bat Removal and Repairs

AFTER: The bats are removed, the droppings cleaned up, the area disinfected, and the repairs are complete. Wire mesh (hardware cloth) with ¼ inch openings are used to secure the outside of the gable vent. Putting this screen on the inside would still allow for the bats to climb under the boards from the outside. When installed properly, this repair will also keep out squirrels, rats, birds, possum, and raccoons.

Looks like a scary horror movie? Believe it or not, this scene takes place every night, all summer long, at Bracken Cave in Texas, where 20 million bats zoom outside to feed on insects. “It is magical,” says Jim Kennedy of Bat Conservation International in Austin Texas. “It is one of the most majestic animal movements on the planet.”
