Bats Can Trigger Health Issues & Cause Structural Damage

Do you have bats in your attic or other areas of your home? If so, it’s time to evict them with the help of the bat removal experts at Catch-It Wildlife & Pest Control, Inc.

The Kansas City area is home to more than a dozen species of bats. Common bats in the region include Little Brown Bats (Myotis lucifugus), and Big Brown Bats (Eptesicus fuscus).  These species are typically found near bodies of water, such as ponds and lakes, or roosting in trees. They often forage for insects at dusk or during the night, when they use echolocation to locate their prey. 

As these bats are insectivorous, they play an important role in controlling pests around homes and businesses throughout Johnson County. However, when they take up residency in your home, bats create more problems than they solve.

    “During a snow event in Kansas City on February 9th, I heard a sound that I thought was in my walls of my bedroom. I tried 5 contacting 5 critter companies that morning but was not able to speak to anyone expect this company, Catch it. They were professional. Explained the process and steps and was able to come that day. Within 3 hours Garret, came out found the issue. Got rid of the debris and replaced the entrance to my attic from unwanted guest. I have a piece of mind and grateful. Knowledgeable and great service. Please use for whatever you need. I will used again if need be.”

    “Wade and his team did a wonderful job getting rid of the squirrels in our attic. I called three other companies, but none were responsive. I called Catch-It and spoke with Wade. They showed up when they said they would and kept their word on each follow-up visit. They were very professional and knowledgeable. I highly recommend Catch-It Wildlife and Pest Control.”

    “Had a significant mole problem in my newly seeded and landscaped backyard. Got a quick response from Catch-It Wildlife & Pest Control. Technician diagnosed problem quickly and set traps. Traps were effective catching two moles, which eliminated the problem. Would highly recommend this business for anyone experiencing mole or other issues.”

    “We used this service to remove a possum that was under our porch. Wayne was very helpful, came out the next day and put traps out, and on the first try he caught two! Reset the traps and caught a racoon, reset the traps and caught another possum and a racoon. We had no idea this was going on under our porch! Now I feel comfortable knowing the wildlife is gone and can let me cats outside! Thank you Wayne! Excellent service!”

The Dangers of DIY Bat Removal

Though there are some do-it-yourself methods for bat removal, these can be hazardous to both people and animals. Not only can inexperienced attempts at removal lead to further damage or injury. Bats are protected by federal law, and it is illegal to kill them.

There are many reasons to trust bat removal in Overland Park to the knowledgeable techs at Catch-It Wildlife & Pest Control, Inc.:

  • DIY bat removal may involve the use of unsafe products or methods that could harm other animals on the property.
  • Removal of bats requires knowledge about their biology and habits to ensure humane treatment. 
  • Without proper safety gear, homeowners risk exposure to diseases such as rabies when attempting to remove bats. 
  • Bat guano (droppings) present a serious health hazard as it can contain spores from fungal organisms that cause histoplasmosis, a potentially fatal respiratory infection. 

We understand how important it is to keep the environment safe for bats while ensuring that your property is protected from damage and infestation.

Bats Carry Diseases

Although bats are beneficial to humans in many ways, they can also pose a health risk if proper precautions are not taken. Bats can carry diseases like rabies which is why it's important to be aware of the potential risks and take the necessary steps to protect yourself and your family. Additionally, bat guano (droppings) presents a serious health hazard as it can contain spores from fungal organisms that cause histoplasmosis, a potentially fatal respiratory infection.

Bats Cause Structural Damage

Bats can cause a lot of structural damage to homes and businesses if they are not removed properly. Bats also have sharp claws that they use to climb up surfaces like wood, stucco, or siding. This can leave behind obvious scratch marks as well as gouges in the material itself. In addition, bats often bring parasites into buildings with them such as bat bugs, which can spread quickly throughout an area.

All this damage makes it essential for homeowners to contact our experienced bat removal experts when dealing with a bat infestation on their property.

After Removal Support

After we’ve removed all the bats from your property, we also offer services that ensure that your home remains free from future infestations. This includes sealing potential entry points and removing feces cleanup (guano removal) in affected areas. Our goal is to bat proof the structure and prevent any future infestation.
