How to Remove Bats from Your Commercial Property
In office buildings, retail stores, and other commercial properties, bat infestations can be a difficult problem to deal with. Commercial bat removal is often a more complicated process than removing bats from your home, as it can be more disruptive. However, if you have a bat in your commercial property, it’s important to get rid of it as soon as possible to prevent injury and disease. If you need to remove bats from your commercial property, read below to learn how.
Why Are They Inside?
During the winter, bats often find their way inside homes and commercial properties to seek warmth. Typically, they will find a warm spot and fall asleep until the winter is over. Bats will often snuggle into insulation in walls and ceilings or other warm crawl spaces.
How to Detect Them
During the winter, it can sometimes be difficult to detect bats because they will fall asleep. Typically, most people will notice bats scratching as they attempt to enter the building. You might also detect bats on your property if you see signs of them nestling into crawl spaces or if you actually see the sleeping bats.
What to Do
If you have bats on your commercial property, there are a few different steps you should take. Most importantly, you should isolate the bat to avoid exposure to you and your employees. Although bats will not typically attack people, they could bite if they feel threatened, which risks exposure to rabies and other diseases. Avoid going near the bat and cut off its access to any food or water. Provide the bat with a clear exit to encourage it to leave your property on its own.
Professional Removal Services
If the bat will not leave on its own, you should not attempt to remove it yourself, as you will risk injury or disease. Instead, call in professional trapping and removal services. A professional wildlife removal company will be able to trap any bats in your commercial building and remove them safely without damaging your property or harming the bat. Professional removal services are the best way to ensure that any bats on your property are moved with the greatest efficiency possible.
After you have removed all bats from your commercial property, it’s important to keep them from entering again. First, you should figure out how they got in in the first place and block that entrance. A professional wildlife removal company will help you identify any potential entry points. Then can then install caps, vents, and whatever other preventative measures necessary to keep bats out.
