Many of Missouri'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 Missouri'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 the county animal services for assistance.

Franklin County Wildlife Removal Tip: What equipment is needed to exclude a bat? Bats or "The Flying Mammals" are amongst the most unique and fascinating creatures of all animals. With their sophisticated way of hunting, echolocation, and great night vision, they are truly incredible creatures. However, bats flying indoors or roosting in accessible locations is annoying and rather should be avoided as it's injurious to the bats, as well as the people in contact with them. A small percentage of them carry rabies with them.

Unlike the conventional methods for removal of animals like raccoons, squirrels, opossums and others, exclusion of bats is achieved through a systematic program. The Trap and Relocate approach is not effective as bats have a homing instinct and thus return to their roost if captured and transported to another location. Popular "Home Remedies" for excluding bats are temporary and mostly ineffective or illegal.

Bat- proofing or bat exclusion is a three step process. Firstly, a thorough inspection of the place is carried out identifying all the entrance/exit openings and gaps. Second step is sealing all gaps, holes and cracks leaving only the primary access holes opened. This prevents bats from finding alternate passages into the house. Thirdly and most important of all is the installation of one-way exclusion devices in these openings. The primary purpose of these devices is to allow the bats to leave their roost or the structure, and prevent them from reentering. One-way devices can be bought online or at your local store costing roughly around 20-30$.

An example of the one-way device is the Bat-X One Way Valve, which has an adhesive and can be pressed around the opening, completely encompassing the entry point. However, these one-way valves can be constructed at home using basic material and equipment. A simple sheet of plastic or plastic bag can be attached to the opening and allowed to hang flush against the building's exterior. The bag should be wider than the opening and at least one foot in depth.

Similar devices for bat exclusion include nettings and cones. Bat Control Nettings made of polypropylene or similar material are used to evict the bats from the required area. Special forms of these are the BB Bat Nets; these are robust specially knotted nets serving the same purpose. Due to their flexibility, durability and light weight, these nets are preferred. Cones work on the same principle and come in different shapes and sizes as per the requirement. With a built in flange and a secondary flange, the cones are effective and easier to install in almost any surface.

Although exclusion is the best way to get rid of bat-roosting structures, timings and knowledge are critical to effective bat-proofing. Proper knowledge of the equipment and its installation plays a key role as well.
