Bat Facts and Tips (Information courtesy of Bat Conservation International)

bat removal san antonio

Bats are not rodents. They will not "gnaw" at insulation, wiring or anything else when roosting. The most damage they cause results from their urine and droppings, or "guano".

The latest research indicates that only 0.5% (half of one percent) of the bat population ever contracts rabies. This is less than most other animal species. Over the past 46 years, only 18 people have died from bat-contracted rabies. Rabid bats die very quickly and unlike other mammals rarely become aggressive from the disease. Most bites from rabid bats occur when someone picks up a sick, grounded bat without proper protection

Never handle a grounded bat without wearing leather, work gloves. A grounded bat can be sick, injured, tired or even in a slowed metabolic state. Like most wild animals, bats will bite to protect themselves, however, bats are not "gnawing rodents" and cannot bite you through heavy leather gloves.

Guano represents more of a health threat to humans than pigeon droppings – although both of these cause unpleasant odors and can become a nuisance or a health hazard in significant amounts. Costly damage can occur to a residence or building if bat colonies are left unchecked for an extended period of time. Usually, a few bats will do no more damage than a few birds.

A bat trapped inside of a building wants nothing more than to find a way out. Bats do not attack humans, unlike they do in some movies. Erratic flight patterns of diving and swooping are simply how a bat maintains its flight. If a bat is trapped inside your building, don't stand in the middle of the room, as this is where most of the "swooping" will take place. Instead, close all the doors leading to other rooms, if possible, and open a window or door to the outside. Stand out of the way, against a wall. The bat will eventually sense the movement of fresh air and head towards the source. (Information courtesy of Bat Conservation International)

Methods

Mike's Professional Wildlife Removal LLC utilizes the following procedures for ensuring the complete removal of all roosting bats from your residence or building:

Initial Inspection

During our first visit, we visually inspect your building to determine the scope of infestation, identify obvious points of entry and to get an idea of how we'll need to customize exclusion devices to suit your building's configuration.

san antonio keep birds out

Exclusion Device Installation and Peripheral Entry Seals

We install customized exclusion devices at all major entry/exit points, and seal all the entry/exit points that appear to be secondary or peripheral.

Sealing of Major Entry/Exit Points

Five to seven days after the exclusion devices are installed, all of the roosting bats will have left your building in search of food or water. Extremely loyal to roosting sites, the bats return again and again, but are unable to re-enter and seek alternative roosting sites. At this point, we come back, remove the exclusion devices and permanently seal the points of entry.

Removal and Treatment

If bats have been roosting for any lengthy amount of time in your building, it's often necessary to remove bat guano accumulations. We use custom made vacuums and attachments to access awkward and hard-to-reach areas. This keeps building or wall demolition (to access areas of guano accumulation) to a minimum. After the guano is removed, we treat the affected areas with organic biocides to remove odor and neutralize any harmful bacteria. Our construction backgrounds also allow us to deliver professional quality repair to damaged areas.

Bird Control Methods

Netting:

This is a great method for enclosed or semi-enclosed areas such as courtyards, overhangs, awnings and some roof tops. It is made of a thin, almost invisible polyethylene twine and utilizes stainless steel installation hardware. It is effective against all bird species.

Electrical Ledge Deterrents:

These are flexible track systems that are very effective on ledges, beams, signs, roofs, and parapets. Their flexible design allows conformability to any architectural design. They are highly discreet systems that deliver a low voltage shock to the feet of the unwanted visitors.

Wire Ledge Deterrents:

This system of stainless steel, nylon coated wire utilizes tension springs and anchors into stainless steel posts installed at intervals. This is the most discreet of systems, invisible even close up and very suitable and effective for aesthetically sensitive buildings. This can also be installed as an electric system, making it an even more effective deterrent; one that’s been used on many federal government buildings.

Gull Wire:

For protecting large areas such as parking lots, warehouse roofs, etc., from gulls and other large aquatic birds. This system consists of stainless steel wire that is configured into a grid pattern over the targeted area. We like it.

Ledge Coils:

For use along exposed ledges, parapets, signs, beams, pipes, etc. This stainless steel coil is easy to install and less expensive than other methods. Its application is limited to larger weight birds and moderate bird pressure.

Health Hazards and Damage by Birds (Information courtesy of the Bird Barrier Company)

Regardless of the poetry inspired by our winged friends, pest or unwanted roosting birds can cause as many health hazards as rats.

Birds harbor over forty types of parasites and can internally host over sixty types of infectious diseases – diseases which can easily be passed on to humans.

Urban lifestyles, where birds come into frequent contact and share in human sources of food, water, and air has already proved capable of creating a health crises.

Direct contamination from feces is one way that nesting birds spread disease. Airborne spores from feces, entering air ducts and vents, can settle on food or water and transfer disease. Many cases of salmonella every year are attributed to the route of transmission.

Airborne particles from bird feces can also contain dormant fungi and/or bacteria. If inhaled, this can result in mild to deadly internal fungal infections.

And if this isn't enough, the parasites carried by pest birds are capable of spreading to human hosts and transmitting literally hundreds of bacterial and viral agents, including encephalitis, pox, meningitis, and plague.

Taking your bird infestation seriously is a very good idea.

Physical Damage Caused By Nesting Pest Birds (Information courtesy of Bird Barrier Company)

In America alone damage from nesting pest birds is estimated in the tens of millions per years. Droppings, netting materials and carcasses pose a host of problems – some which have the potential to become severe enough to necessitate a shutdown of the facility – and that happens more often than you might think.

Bird droppings are highly acidic and actually eat away some of the most durable substances. The life expectancy of a warehouse rooftop can be cut in half by even a light contamination from droppings.

Nests built in gutters can cause extensive damage – even collapsing roofs – from improper drainage. They are also very flammable and create ca serious fire hazard. Both nesting materials and acidic droppings can damage air conditioners, industrial machinery, siding materials and insulation.

Droppings, resulting in immediate health department closures and costs companies millions in ruined products can contaminate manufacturing processes. Even one unwanted bird can cause costly damage.

Accumulated droppings can pose a physical danger increasing financial liabilities from injuries. In addition, grounds and buildings contaminated with droppings create a negative image for companies and building owners. Mike's Professional Wildlife Removal can build a permanent and effective solution for your problem.

Odor Control: Bats

If bats have been roosting for any lengthy amount of time in your building, it's often necessary to remove any existing bat guano accumulation. We have custom-made vacuums and attachments that allow us to gain access to awkward areas with minimal deconstruction of walls.

After the guano is removed, we use environmentally safe, non-toxic products to leave your building odor and bacteria free.

Birds

Taking control of problems caused by flocks of nesting pest birds is more important than you think, especially for managers of commercial and public properties.

Direct contact with bird feces has been proven to spread disease. Airborne spores from feces, entering air ducts and vents, can settle on food or water. Many cases of salmonella every year are attributed to this route of transmission. Airborne particles from bird feces can also contain dormant fungi and/or bacteria. If inhaled, this can result in mild to deadly internal fungal infections. Parasites carried by birds are capable of spreading to human hosts and transmitting literally hundreds of bacterial and viral agents, including encephalitis, pox, meningitis and plague.

We use powerful, custom-made vacuums to remove the feces, and treat the affected areas with environmentally safe, non-toxic products to leave your buildings odor free, and greatly reduce any health threats from contamination caused by bird infestation.
