BAT REMOVAL
Bat distribution
Seven species of bats live in Minnesota, all of them rather small. Four species (Little Brown Myotis, Northern Myotis, Big Brown Bat, and Eastern Pipistrelle) form colonies and can be found in groups in caves, hollow trees, and buildings. These animals typically feed over open fields, along woodland edges, or over lakes and streams.

Nuisance Wildlife Control specializes in removal of Bats in Mpls, St Paul , St Cloud and all surrounding suburbs.

The remaining three species (Silver-haired Bat, Red Bat, and Hoary Bat) are commonly called tree bats, reflecting their preferred habitat. They lead solitary lives, characteristically roosting in trees and feeding in or around forested areas.

All Minnesota bats are insectivores. They feed exclusively on insects—mostly beetles, moths, flies, midges, mayflies, and to a very minor degree, mosquitoes.

SymptomsBats Roast Big Lake
Scratching sounds, especially at night or real cold or warm winter days. Chirping sounds that come from the attic, walls or chimney during June, July or August. A bat in the living area any time of the year could mean you have a colony living in your house. A concentration of bat droppings on exterior walls, decks or porches. A concentration of droppings in your attic or other areas of your house. A urine smell that come and goes but is especially bad on humid hot days. Seeing bats fly away from your house a dusk.

Exclusion
Bat proofing is the only way to permanently rid a building of bats. The process of bat proofing is correcting all the physical and man made flaws in the building then installing a one way device on the bat entrances. Nuisance Wildlife Control DOES NOT install  one way devices until the baby bats are weaned and flying.  Exclusion carried out before the baby bats are weaned and flying will result in young bats being trapped inside where they will die and create an odor/ pest problem.

Bat Removal Elk RiverThe first part of getting your house bat proofed is an inspection. Call 763-227-9888 to schedule your inspection or fill out our Bat Removal Estimate Form.   During this inspection NWC will determine what species of bats the house has, what type of roast it is. What physical and man made flaws we need to correct and when we can schedule the work. From this inspection we can determine what the costs will be to bat proof the building. Exclusion can be very expensive on large buildings or on those having a great many openings, but most houses that are in good condition can be bat proofed for a lot less.  Bat removal can also be guaranteed.
 


Health ConcernsBat droppings

Because they are mammals, bats can carry rabies. This danger, however, is very minor. Of the sick bats that are brought in for testing ½ of 1% are tested positive for the rabies virus. However, to be safe, never handle bats with bare hands and follow the Minnesota Department of Health’s guidelines for bat exposure.

Histoplasmosis is another disease associated with some bat colonies. The disease is caused by inhalation of spores or fragments of the naturally occurring soil fungus Histoplasma capsulatum. This fungus is most frequently found in soil enriched by excreta from bats and birds (especially pigeons and starlings).  Human infections occur through the breathing dust that contains the spores. Some infections produce flu-like symptoms, but many infections in humans produce no symptoms or distress.

Parasites
Like all mammals bats may harbor fleas, mites, or ticks. Most of these bat parasites are highly host specific.
