Licensed Bat Removal Professionals

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 bat feces or bat guano accumulation from bat infestations. Bats in the attic can not be removed during bat maternity season. A single bat can consume 1000 insects an hour so humane critter control should always be done if controlling bats is your goal. A bat trap is never recommended as it is illegal to hire bat exterminator services, which are usually offered by pest control companies. Bats can not be killed. At Triangle Wildlife Removal we do not kill or exterminate bats. They are active at night during the spring, summer and fall. Around central North Carolina such as Raleigh, 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 bat houses in order to keep bats near their properties in hopes to avoid animal removal. The most common species in the Triangle area are big brown bats, little brown bats and Brazilian free-tailed bats. These bats are normally found in houses in gable vents, between chimneys and flashing and behind shutters. The sight of bat droppings is usually a key indicator that you’ll need a bat removal professional. 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

All bats have state and federal protection, even bat 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, removal 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 bats, both little brown bats and big brown bats, are volant in about three weeks (flying). The exclusion or wildlife removing process can then be started for bat control in Raleigh. Bats are not trapped but excluded from a roost. They are easy to remove but the difficulty is sealing all entrances, which is also called animal exclusion, larger than 3/8″ on the structure. Bats 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 bat feces. Gable vents, soffits and gaps are the most common areas when dealing with bat 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 meet the eves anywhere on the structure. Source

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 bats hibernate). Bats 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

Many laboratories and state and federal biologists are investigating the cause of the bat deaths. A fungus discovered in 2008, Pseudogymnoascus destructans, or pd, (formerly Geomyces destructans), has been demonstrated to cause WNS. Scientists are investigating the dynamics of fungal infection and transmission, and searching for a way to control it
