Humane Bat Removal West Virginia
Have you been hearing disturbing sounds at night around your West Virginia home? If so, you may have a bat control problem!
Bats in the United States are almost always beneficial. Many bats feed on insects and can consume up to half their body weight in one night's feeding! Occasionally, however, they become a nuisance inside buildings or pose a public health problem. The bats that most often become a problem around people are those that live in colonies or groups, such as little brown bats and big brown bats. These species sometimes hibernate or roost inside buildings. When this happens to you, call our teams at 1-800-CRITTER for your bat removal needs.
Humane Bat Removal Strategies
Not only are some bat species protected federally, but also some states have additional regulations on bat control. The most humane bat removal method is the use of a one-way valve. Bats are free to leave but cannot return. Do not install bat valves if flightless pups are present. These bat babies rely on their mothers. If the females cannot return to the pups, the pups will slowly die.
