Many of Iowa'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 Iowa'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 Winneshiek county animal services for assistance. They can help you out with issues such as stray dogs, stray cats, spay & neuter programs, vaccinations, licenses, pet adoption, bite reports, deceased pets, lost pets, local animal complaints and to report neglected or abused animals. There is no free Decorah animal control for wildlife issues.

Decorah Wildlife Removal Tip: Will Homeowners Insurance Pay For Bat Damage?

Bat proofing, bat exclusion and the repair of the house are often expensive. It's not necessary that the insurance companies are going to pay for the damage caused by the bats to your home. The damages caused by them and the insurance pay don't usually go together. The insurance information institute states that the pest infestations and the damages caused by the pest in your house do not come under insurance but it is a part of maintenance. The company states that it's not their duty to cover up the expenses. It is the duty of the house owner to prevent and exclude them from the house. They should evict the pest if any before they damage the property. Most of the times the owners himself have to bear the expenses.

It also depends on the policy you have. If you have all risk policy then there is a chance of getting the money. If you bought a property that has already been damaged by the bats, then the previous owner, the bank inspector and the estate broker are liable for the damage and not you. Even if the owner was unaware of the damage, a clear inspection could have revealed it. The only thing you need is some evidence to prove that the damage was there from before and it's not new. A professional may give you an exact knowledge about the damage, the size of the bat's colony and the amount of accumulation of guano. You can have them photographed as evidence.

You may not always get the claimed money but in few cases they can give the coverage that you paid for. Bats are not the same as other pest. Most of the companies do not cover the bat removal and think it as the liability of the house owner. Your policy claim can be jeopardized on the matter that you failed to maintain the house. Removal of any kind of pest from the house is your issue and not the insurance company's. Once you have removed the bat, you have to clean up and repair the place. The company can even deny the future claim if they find that the damages were made long before and you as the house owner failed to repair and remove the bats.

You can find an agent or contractor who will help you to file the claim. If you can prove that the bats are due to some damages that were caused by an event, only after that the removal can be covered under the claim. This is difficult to prove them until you have proper evidences. Only after you have proved, you can get the money for repairing damages under the home insurance policy.
