Our free inspection includes looking for openings in the roof as they are the most common places to find bats. We look for bat droppings and guano, which are always present in or near these holes. Next, we check the chimney, fascia, soffit, and attic vents for signs of bats.
Removal and Exclusion
At Blue Ridge, we strive to get rid of bats as humanely as possible. Because of this, our removal and exclusion programs are the same. Instead of physically exterminating the bats, we install a one-way door that allows them to exit but not return. In our 20 years of service we have learned that the best way to get rid of bats is physical bat exclusion, not ultrasound or repellent sprays.
After confirming that the bats are gone, the entrance will be closed and sealed off and then the cleaning will begin. Bat guano is dirty and dangerous. Our professionals have respirators and other protective equipment on hand to protect themselves from harm. For this reason, it is highly recommended that you seek professional help to remove bat guano, so you will not be in danger of getting ill.
