Many of Illinois'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 Illinois's wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

Zion Wildlife Removal Tip: How Much Does Bat Removal Cost?

Due to rapid urbanisation, intrusion of bats in the household is a real problem that the people have to face nowadays. Since the bats do not have many caves of trees these days to live, they invade human residences. They often make a living out of an attic or store room; they usually choose places where light cannot enter because they prefer dark places. They are usually quiet animals, but they can be very malign as well. If they bite you, you can actually get rabies. Female bats actually prefer attics when they are about give babies because they need a warm shelter. Eradicating bat is pretty costly, but if you have a single bat living there in your attic, you can still minimalize the cost. However, if a whole colony is living there, the cost might get up to 1000 bucks. Read below to know how you can eradicate bats from your house and how much it should cost.

1. Doing It Yourself

While there are a lot of DIY bat removals that make it look easy, the task is quite risky as humans can be easily infected by the numerous viruses that bats carry. There are risks of rabies, catching fleas or lungs problem through the fungus histoplasmosis present in bat-droppings. Therefore, it is always safer to contact a professional.

2. Extermination or Exclusion?

The attic is a very favourite place of bats, as it is a less inhabited, warm and protective space. Since usually in an attic, there are many bats living together, it is safer to opt for an exclusion process than extermination of all. Bats are also very useful in eating insects and helping the food cycle in environment. Killing them is also dangerous as, being mammals, the poison used is also harmful to humans.

3. Exclusion Process

Though extermination seems like the logical solution in case of any kind of infestation, for bats, exclusion is more logical. It is more time-saving as well as killing bats might be illegal. Exclusion is a process that helps in containing small infestations. It is done by locating and blocking secondary entry points that are used by the bats. These small points must be properly sealed so that bats are made to pass through the points in only one way and therefore cannot re-enter. After that, exclusion products like Batcone II can be used on the main entry points. It is a quite low-cost method, under $20.

4. Prevention

It is very important in the first place to prevent bats entering your home. Most advertised deterrents such as ultrasonic systems, sprays, and mothballs are not long-term solutions. Any entry point around the outside of your house, even the smallest ones, should be properly looked for and sealed off. In some regions, keeping an alternate roosting place for bats, known as bat houses, on your property also keeps them away from your home, if they respond well to the system.

Therefore, prevent bats from finding an entry and exit point into your house at any cost. If they still do, don't worry. The removal is not that difficult after all!
