Licensed Removal Professionals

Looking for Durham bat removal services? Bats are winged mammals that are in the order Chiroptera. They are very beneficial animals despite many needs for bat control. This usually is due to feces or bat guano accumulation from infestations. These organisms in the attic cannot be relocated during their maternity season. A single bat can consume 1000 insects an hour so humane critter control should always be done if controlling them is your goal. A trap is never recommended as it is illegal to hire bat exterminator services, which are usually offered by pest control companies. They cannot be killed.

At Triangle Wildlife Removal we do not kill or exterminate them. They are active at night during the spring, summer, and fall. Around central North Carolina such as Chapel Hill, and Durham, they will be active in the winter on mild or warm evenings but will quickly retreat to hibernation during extreme cold. Many people put up houses in order to keep them near their properties in hopes to avoid animal extermination. The most common species in the Triangle area are big browns, little browns, and Brazilian free-tailed. These flying mammals are normally found in houses in gable vents, between chimneys and flashing and behind shutters.

The sight of droppings is usually a key indicator that you’ll need a professional along with cleanup for their droppings. They are frequently found in older concrete and brick commercial buildings high around the roofline where settling has occurred. The normal signs that are seen are rub marks at entry points, rustling, and chirping in voids, large accumulations of droppings (guano) and the odors and organisms associated with the colonies.

Bat Exclusion Process

All bats have state and federal protection, even infestations that have caused a nuisance wildlife emergency. The females comprise the maternal colonies. They will typically have one set of twins during the end of May through the month of June. At this time, a transfer is prohibited by the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission. The “blackout period” for maternity season is from May 1 through July 31 for the entire state. The juvenile ones, both little browns and big browns, are volant in about three weeks (flying).

The exclusion can then be started for control. They are not trapped but excluded from a roost. They are easy to transfer but the difficulty is sealing all entrances, which is also called animal exclusion, larger than 3/8″ on the structure. They are very persistent and will search all available penetrations around a roof area for a new entry. These entries can usually be found by grease marks or feces. Gable vents, soffits, and gaps are the most common areas when dealing with these infestations.

Houses may need to be caulked in the following places:

  • Between window drip caps (tops of windows) and siding
  • Between door drip caps and siding
  • At joints between window frames and siding
  • At joints between door frames and siding
  • Between window sills and siding
  • At corners formed by siding
  • At sills where wood structure meets the foundation
  • Outside water faucets, or other special breaks in the outside house surface
  • Where pipes and wires penetrate the ceiling below an unheated attic
  • Between porches and the main body of the house
  • Where chimney or masonry meets siding
  • Where storm windows meet the window frame
  • Where the wall meets the eve at the gable ends the attic
  • Where wall meets the eves anywhere on the structure. Source

Bat Prevention

Our company is very skilled and methodical in exclusion, prevention, clean up and disinfecting of structures due to their activity. We will also mount and install bat houses, if needed, in order to keep roosts available nearby. The professionals at Triangle Wildlife will start by inspecting the area for signs of an infestation. Some signs include chirping sounds, brown and black stains near re-entry points and droppings or guano near places like attic vents. After assessing the situation, our experts will decide how to treat your specific situation. This may include exclusion as well as teaching home and business owners how to prevent further incidents. Our wildlife technicians are highly skilled in safely moving these animals from your home, cleaning up their mess and sealing entry points. With over 25 years of animal control experience, Triangle knows how to get them out and keep them out.

What is white-nose syndrome?

White-nose syndrome is a disease affecting hibernating bats. Named for the white fungus that appears on the muzzle and other parts of hibernating bats, WNS is associated with extensive mortality of bats in eastern North America. First documented in New York in the winter of 2006-2007, WNS has spread rapidly across the eastern United States and Canada, and the fungus that causes WNS has been detected as far south as Mississippi and as far west as the state of Washington. Bats with WNS act strangely during cold winter months, including flying outside in the day and clustering near the entrances of hibernacula (caves and mines where they hibernate). They have been found sick and dying in unprecedented numbers in and around caves and mines. WNS has killed more than 5.7 million bats in eastern North America. In some hibernacula, 90 to 100 percent of bats have died. Source

Bats usually supply people with some benefits but come with a cost that is a threat sometimes. Bat droppings have been excavated as guano from caves to be used as fertilizer.
