Bat Removal in Fairfax, Alexandria & Arlington, VA

Bats are nocturnal mammals and usually emerge at dusk. They feed on insects and can eat up to 1000 mosquitoes in an hour. They tend to inhabit dark spaces like attics and crawl spaces where they can wreak havoc on your property.

Their droppings, also known as bat guano, are a major health hazard to humans and pets. After a while, large piles of droppings form. Not only do the droppings and urine corrode wood and metal, but the weight of all the guano can collapse the ceiling below the attic.

Bats in North America hibernate in the colder weather. They roost in large colonies in attics, chimneys, churches, under bridges and fly out in large clusters. A bat in your home could be a one-time incident. But it could also be a telltale sign of a bat infestation in your attic.

Rely on the Pros for Bat Removal & Clean-Up

To remove bats from your home, you need to call a professional. Not only is it dangerous to try to remove a bat in the attic by yourself, but it is also illegal to kill a bat.

Most bats are federally protected, and it is best to contact a wildlife control specialist to safely and humanely remove bats from chimneys, attics, churches or any dwelling. Their roosting sites turn into toxic messes. The clean-up of bat guano presents a huge health concern. Wearing gloves, a respirator mask, and following safety practices is very important. Although a dust mask provides some protection against dust, molds, and insulation fibers, it does not protect against viruses.

What Diseases are Spread by Bats?

Rabies from a bite or histoplasmosis from inhaling guano are the most common diseases spread by bats. Bats also are hosts for parasites like ticks, fleas, and mites that transmit other diseases.
