If you discover or suspect a bat colony is living in or around your Kentucky home or business, we encourage you to act fast. The longer you wait to resolve a bat infestation problem, the more damages will incur and the more costly the restorations and removal will be. As soon as you suspect possible bat intrusion, contact a local animal removal company. We recommend you do not call an ordinary pest control company! Many pest control companies will advertise that they can remove and trap bats, but this seldom the case. Pest Control companies specialize in bugs and most do not carry the proper licenses, equipment, and species knowledge to safely and effectively remove bats from a property. These pest control companies are known to use poisons and illegal bat traps to get rid of bats, and in accordance with Kentucky laws, this is far from the legal and humane way to remove bats. Bats are protected under Kentucky law and should never be maltreated or killed in any circumstance. Always use a reputable and industry specific animal removal and control company such as A All Animal Control. If you suspect you have a bat problem call one of our bat removal specialist to schedule a certified bat inspection of your home or business.
An inspection inside the home, particularly in attic areas may also reveal evidence of bat activity. You may see the bats themselves hanging from rafters in dark, secluded spots in the attic, you may find the remains of a dead bat, or you may find accumulations of bat droppings on the floor. Old, dried bat droppings sometimes have a "coffee grounds" appearance. To minimize any risk of exposure to Histoplasma, precautions should be taken to safely clean up and remove those droppings if significant accumulations of old bat droppings are found. Common exit points include attic vents, rooflines (e.g., between the roof sheathing and the fascia boards), and any openings resulting from building deterioration Openings of only 3/8 inch are sufficient for bat entry. In some cases, such as barns, exit and entry points may be the actual doorways. Exit/entry locations can also be determined by preemergence noise, droppings below the exit points, odor, or smudge marks in the areas of entry. If you suspect you have bats in your Kentucky home or business call our bat removal specialist today to schedule a certified bat inspection. Our certified bat removal specialist will perform a complete inspection of your property. They will confirm or deny the presence of bats in the structure and if found they can give you a complete solution to getting the bats out quickley and humanly in accordance with all Kentucky bat removal laws.
Bats are among Kentucky’s most interesting and unique mammals and probably one of the most misunderstood. There are many myths concerning bats that cause some people to unnecessarily fear these mammals. Bats rarely, if ever attack people or "get tangled in your hair." In fact, most bats in Kentucky are biologically useful mammals. They feed primarily upon insects, many of which are pests to agriculture. However, bats can be harmful pests if they roost within buildings. There are good reasons for not tolerating their presence. The scratching and squeaking noises they create are annoying. Their droppings and urine not only stain walls and ceilings, but also cause objectionable, persistent odors that may attract insects such as roaches and other bat colonies.. Long-term accumulation of bat droppings in attic spaces has been associated with the respiratory disease Histoplasmosis. This disease is caused by a fungal spore called Histoplasma Capsulatum. Additionally, there is a slight chance of someone contacting a rabid bat, although the great majority of house-infesting bats in Kentucky are NOT rabid.

Bat Inspections Many people want to know how to determine if there are bat colonies living inside or around their Kentucky homes or businesses. Fortunately, there are ways to investigate this query. When it comes to noises, bats are nocturnal and are active at night. So during the day be alert for squeaking and scratching sounds in your walls or attic. If you hear these types of noises, bats may very well be the culprit. Other ways to detect bats in and around your Kentucky home or business is to look for visual clues. Check out areas of your property that are dark and dim. In these spaces, look for bat droppings and urine stains. Larger accumulations point toward larger bat colonies.
