The wildlife control and exclusion experts at Knock ‘Em Out Pest Control will get these unwanted guests out and more importantly, keep them out. We help keep the wildlife in the wild!
Bats are nocturnal creatures that travel in colonies and their large numbers can quickly cause problems for businesses and homeowners. They enter structures through spaces as small as a quarter of an inch and often find their way inside through rooflines, soffits, chimneys, gables fascia boards, or vents. This makes attics a prime nesting location and once they establish a colony, they become very territorial so removal by an expert in of utmost importance. Once inside they are very noisy and their extremely odorous droppings accumulate quickly, serving as a dangerous breeding ground for disease such as Bat Rabies and Histoplasmosis. In addition, bats are known carriers of other harmful insects such as fleas and ticks.

Home Repair and Pest Prevention
We will make all of the necessary repairs and changes to your home or business including sealing off entry points to ensure that the bats cannot re-enter.
Bird and Bat Clean-Up
We will also handle what bats or birds in your attic leave behind. Bats and birds leave behind guano, bird droppings, and urine. Guano poses two different risks; excessive weight on ceiling structures that if left untreated may require extensive repair and restoration and more importantly deadly disease. Guano not only causes a strong, unpleasant odor but can also carry a sometimes fatal fungus known to cause Histoplasmosis. It is dangerous just to breathe the feces let alone handle it. We will enter your attic wearing full safety equipment and remove all soiled and damaged insulation, as well as spray a deodorizer that will dissolve all organic matter from your attic. We will re-insulate with new cellulose insulation at state-regulated standards.
