Bat Removal and Control

United Bat Control, Inc are professional bat removal experts who have been specializing in bat exclusion for commercial, industrial and residential complexes nationwide since 1989.

Our work is exclusively bat removal and bat exclusion.

United Bat Control is a family owned business founded in 1989 that has been protecting commercial properties, families, businesses and the environment by humanely performing bat removal services to business, homes, residences, schools, hospitals, restaurants and commercial buildings. Bats are very important to our ecology and environment and it is imperative that the proper bat removal techniques are employed when removing them from commercial buildings and family dwellings, especially since the outbreak of White Nose Syndrome that has had such a devastating effect on our bat population

United Bat Control removes bats from commercial property, human dwellings and businesses while allowing bats to live and thrive in their home community; so that they may continue to eat the millions of insects that populate our communities and allow our environment, ecology and communities to thrive. Utilizing the United Bat Control patented removal devises enables our company to expertly exclude bat colonies from interacting with human beings in business atmospheres and family dwellings while allowing the bats to relocate in a more friendly environment to mate, populate and help sustain our local community's environment and ecology.

United Bat Control Inc. provides multi-year warranties to protect you
against a re-infestation of bats.

Bat exclusion is as much about protecting your business, family, your home and your community's agricultural ability to continue growing food, as it is about protecting bats, protecting the bat's environment and protecting our community's farmland. In order to better understand how easy it is to protect bats and their environment, as well as protect your commercial property against the potential harm from bat rabies and disease, United Bat Control provides these exclusion procedures and guidelines:

Information: One of the first recommendations we make to anyone that thinks there is any possibility that they have bats in their home, house, restaurant or commercial building is to do a complete inspection of the structure. Attention to detail is the difference between a successful inspection and failure to determine how the bats come in and go out of your building.

The entire outside of the building must be inspected. The larger populations of bats, such as the little Brown bat, are able to get inside a building that has cracks, slits or gaps that are only one quarter inch by one and one half inches and they will get inside a hole that is five eighths inches by seven eighths inches. Other bat species are able to get inside your house with even smaller openings.

While looking for building cracks and gaps, inspect and search the areas around the air conditioning and heating units on the roof for commercial properties, the family chimney, the edge of the roof, the roof overhang, the valley of the roof, roof eaves, the apex of the gable (the triangular part of the wall that is between the edges of a sloping roof). Inspect the exterior of the building's air conditioning ducts, attics, roof vents, dormers, siding and any telephone cable or television cable that has been attached to the exterior walls of the building. Remember that small holes are all bats need to enter the building.

Additional Information: We will suggest you continue your inspection of the building, but this time you are looking for bat droppings, also known as bat guano, as a sign of the possibility of a bat colony being inside your commercial property or home. Be careful but thorough in checking the roof and chimney for bat guano droppings. Also be on the lookout for Rub Marks made by bats entering and exiting the building. You are looking for a stained area that is yellowish brown to black brown in color, slightly sticky and will have a smooth polished appearance from high use. You want to give the outside of the building or home a thorough look and then you want to inspect the attic and air conditioning pathways.

The attic inspection is imperative for a proper bat removal inspection. A professional bat inspector will be wearing a respirator to protect their lungs from inhaling potential disease carried by bat guano droppings. These droppings will also help the professional bat removal expert determine the type of bats that are in the attic and help in the planning to do the bat removal humanely and protect the bat population from unnecessary harm. The attic inspection will tell the United Bat Control expert the size of the bat colony and where they are living in the attic - and highlight where the bats are entering the building or house, be it the building's roof, chimney, the roofs edge or the knot hole around the attic window.

Bat Information: Bats leave their living quarters, their roost, at dusk for a night of flight and eating. They help the environment by eating millions of insects that are often harmful to human beings. They carry seeds and help in pollinating flowers that benefit our ecology and environment. So usually our next step in our building and house inspection is to stand outside at dusk and observe the bats as they leave the building or home. What one expert may have missed with the close hand inspection of the building is caught and supplemented by the United Bat Control expert in observing and
following the bats leaving the roost.

Equipment for Removing Bats: The installation of patented bat exclusion devices is the next step in the process of removing bats from your commercial property, house or business. During our dusk inspection and observation of the bats leaving your property, we determine whether one or more exclusion devices will best serve the needs of the bat colony. Once the exclusion device locations are determined and the best number of exclusion devices to be used is determined, our bat control, bat removal professional will re-enter the house or business and install the device.

The installation of our patented One Way Bat Exclusion Device is done so that the entire bat colony will leave the building. This is normally a one, two or three day process depending upon the size of the colony. You do not want to go to the effort of removing 99% of the colony; it is imperative that you get 100% of the bats out and do so humanely and safely.

Building Repair: Prior to, during and upon completion of the installation of the One Way Bat Removal Exclusion Device, it is imperative to patch up, repair and fix all of the cracks, slits, gaps and holes that were found during the bat removal inspection. Once you have given the bats a way to get out the building, you do not want them to be able to return to your house or business. It is in the best interest of all parties to make sure that you seal the gaps permanently so that the bats are unable to return.

Building Clean Up: It is imperative for the health and safety of everyone who enters your business or home for a thorough cleaning of the building grounds, attic, roof and walls to remove bat guano. Bat guano is a breeding ground for micro-organisms and in some cases will become a breeding ground for histoplasmosis, an infection that is able to cause harm to humans. Bat guano can accumulate in walls, floors and ceilings. What is in plain site is not always the true amount of bat guano that needs to be removed from your home or business.

Important Information about Bat Rabies

One must always be careful with bats and bat guano when they are found in your home and business. There is always the possibility and potential that they are carrying rabies. Rabies is an infection that will affect human beings. We can get rabies from a bat if they are carrying rabies and they bite us. It is imperative that if you have been bitten by a bat with rabies, you must get a vaccination within two (2) weeks of getting the bite because once you start getting sick it is fatal. However, you do have 2 weeks to get a vaccination and if your dog, cat or horse has been bitten by a bat, there are
vaccinations to protect them too.

While 99% of all bats are rabies free, they still rank in the number three position behind raccoons and skunks for giving human beings rabies. It has been reported that during the past 20 years, there have been more human rabies cases that began with a bat bite in the United States than of any other wildlife group.

If you think you have bats in your home or business, call United Bat Control and let us come out and inspect the building. You'll be glad you called a professional bat removal expert.
We've been doing this since 1998.

Bat Facts
If you have a bat control problem with a single bat or a bat colony, United Bat Conrol can assist you in the removal of the bat in the most humane way possible. We understand that bats are very important to our planet. We are doing everything in our control to make sure that once removed from a dwelling the bats are safe, healthy, find a new home and keep the ecological system balanced.

United Bat Control utilizes their patented devises that enables us to humanely exclude bat colonies numbering from a few in number to thousands in number! After a proper exclusion is performed it is necessary to bat proof a structure so that the colonies cannot return. The ecological materials that are used to bat proof a structure are applied in a professional manner so as to conform to the aesthetics of your structure and the ecology of the community.

All accessible Guano should be removed. After a Guano clean-up is completed, it is recommended to have an application of a sterilizer and deodorizer provided. This application is intended to kill the fungus that can cause Hystoplasmosis, as well as assist in providing a solution to the odor problem that is caused by bats and their colonies.

Never handle a dead animal without gloves and never attempt to clean up the bat mess they made without gloves because it could contain disease matter. When you come across a live bat situation where you know they are in your house or business, give them a chance to leave quietly, rather than shout, scream or yell for them to get out of your home. As professionals we have found that one of the most successful ways to make a bat leave is by installing a one way bat door over their entry and exit holes that they are using as front and back doors to your house and business.

Study Indicates Bat Disease Transfers to Humans

A team of scientists working in conjunction with Professor Doctor Christian Drosten, Head of the Institute for Virology at the Universitätsklinikum in Bonn, Germany have reinforced the need to be careful about coming into contact with bats: "We already knew from prior studies that bats and rodents play a role as carriers of paramyxoviruses," Professor Drosten said. The many varied members of this large virus family cause, e.g., measles, mumps, pneumonias and colds. The highly dangerous Hendra and Nipah viruses cause types of encephalitis that result in the death of one out of two patients. Paramyxoviruses also play a role in veterinary medicine, causing e.g., canine distemper or rinderpest.

May 2012 is next week and bats are coming out of hibernation if they haven't already left their roost. Don't try and remove bats by yourself - get help!

The Indiana Bat - Myotis Sodalist
The LivingstoneDaily.com online newspaper has reported that the I-96 highway project will have U.S. federal funding problems if they do not ensure that the project doesn't interfere with the Indiana bat's habitat during its breeding season. The Indiana bat, which is known by scientists as "myotis sodalist", spends time in Michigan's wood areas during the summer and spring, and is on the U.S. federal endangered species list.

Rabies Prevention Information from the Barnstable Public Health Department
A Cape man received a rabies infection by a bat bite. The following information about preventing rabies infections was published by the Barnstable Public Health Department.

In light of a Cape man's rabies infection caused by a bat bite, the Barnstable Public Health Department has released a statement on January 6, 2012 with action steps to prevent rabies.

Rabies is a fatal disease that is spread when an animal with rabies bites or comes in very close contact with another animal or person. The rabies virus is carried in the saliva of infected animals. If a person knows that he or she has been exposed to rabies, disease can be prevented in people by administering a vaccine and antibodies promptly.

The Massachusetts Department of Public Health (MA DPH) recommends that if you are bitten or scratched by an animal, wash the wound with soap and water for ten minutes and call your health care provider to determine if you need to be treated for a rabies exposure.

How to help prevent rabies:

  • Keep your chimney capped and repair holes in attics, cellars, and porches to help keep wild animals like bats and raccoons out of your home.
  • Teach children to never approach animals they don't know-even if they appear friendly.
  • Report any animal that behaves oddly to your local animal control official.
  • Make sure your pets are vaccinated against rabies. By law, all dogs, cats and ferrets must be regularly vaccinated against rabies.
  • Don't feed food or water to your pets outside. Even empty bowls will attract wild and stray animals.
  • Keep your pets in a fenced yard or on a leash and do not let them roam freely.
  • Keep your garbage securely covered. Open garbage will attract wild or stray animals.
  • Call the Falmouth Animal Control Office at 508-457-2552 for help in getting the bat tested for rabies, and call your healthcare provider or the DPH at 617-983-6800 to help you determine if you need to be treated for a rabies exposure.

  • Reminder: If you are bitten by a bat or know of someone who has been bitten by a bat, call the
     Center for Disease Control and your local doctor for immediate help.
  • The North Burnett Council continues to talk with the Queensland Government in Australia about a long term permit for the removal of bats from the Gayndah township, which is located south-west of Bundaberg. There is a bat colony 300,000 strong that is causing problems for the local community.
  • An Ohio apartment renter had bats in her building and the landlord wasn't taking care of the problem. She stopped paying rent and that caused her a problem with the landlord. She needed to send a letter to the owner requesting he have the bats removed and if in 30 days he didn't act, she then could use the courts to escrow her rent and get the problem fixed.
  • In Montreal home owners learned that bats were living in their attic. They had been under the impression that the bats' roost was at the church across the street. They were wrong and the realtor that sold them their home was fined for not disclosing the problem at the time of escrow.
  • The public library in Princeton had bats in their attic. Money was taken from the maintenance fund to remove the bats.
