  • We Can Solve It!
Many of Delaware's wild animals have learned to adapt and even thrive in our homes. For example some wildlife have found that attics make great places to live. Other animals find refuge under homes or porches. Invariably, these animals cause damage. Rodents, like squirrels and rats, love to chew on electrical wires once in an attic, and this causes a serious fire hazard. Raccoons can cause serious contamination in an attic with their droppings and parasites. Same goes for bat or bird colonies. We specialize in solving Delaware's wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

We do not handle dog or cat problems. If you need assistance with a domestic animal, such as a dog or a cat, you need to call your local Kent county animal services for assistance.

There is no free Smyrna animal control for wildlife issues.

Smyrna Wildlife Removal Tip: How Do Bats Use Echolocation?

Bats are equipped with most sophisticated sight and hearing mechanism that makes them able to fly up to great distances, hunt, and prey on tiny creatures with higher accuracy. They can avoid obstacles with higher accuracy while spotting objects located far as compared to human eyesight. This mechanism is mainly known as echolocation. Note that this mechanism is used by many other species that live underwater such as whales, sharks, and dolphins. The most interesting thing to know about batís echolocation power is that they use it to achieve higher precision and better speed for space orientation. It also helps them to coordinate their actions in the environment.

Echolocation is used by bats to determine distance and position of objects in the space. These nocturnal creatures are capable enough to transmit high-frequency ultrasonic sounds in the environment that is further bounced off from different objects. The reflected sound is then gathered by bats via their ears, and they use it to determine the distance between their current position and object. Whether bats are sleeping or awake; they keep on transmitting these ultrasonic waves continuously, and they are not detectable by human ears. Bats collect a variety of signals coming from surrounding environment, and by analyzing that information, they manage to communicate, hunt and fly with higher precision.

Bats make use of echolocation to prepare a sonic map of the environment. With their sharp hearing power and sight; they are able to manage survival even in the worst conditions. The echolocation mechanism helps them to avoid crashing with other objects in the space. The speed and length of their flight make them able to stay safe from predators as well, and they are less likely caught as preys. Note that most of the bat species live on insects so they need very sharp and speedy senses to make sure that they can catch these fast but tiny preys. The echolocation mechanism helps them to target their prey with higher precision. This echolocation mechanism also helps them to communicate with their group members and detect the exact position of their roosts.

One interesting fact about bat echolocation mechanism is that all bats use unique frequency for communication and object detection needs. It helps them to differentiate their signals from other bats in the environment. Depending on the environment and pray they are targeting, their sound also varies in terms of frequency. However, the sound signals emitted by bats are of very high frequency, so they cannot be detected by human ears.

If you have bats in your attic, you will not be able to detect their presence on time because they are nocturnal creatures and come out in night hours when humans are already in their bed. In the day hours, they keep on hanging upside down in their colonies and may create some scratching noise. It is better to call professional bat exterminators to handle the procedure on time. They can help you to get rid of bat infestation on time.
