Attic remediation is a common service offered by wildlife removal businesses. Attic remediation sometimes becomes necessary when there has been an animal infestation in the attic area. Prolonged infestations often leave large amounts of waste and urine in the attic and the only way to rid the fierce odor is to remediate all the damaged insulation, sanitize the attic, and place new insulation down. Call the animal removal company listed in your area for attic restoration. If your area is not listed in my directory, email me and I will recommend a company. Attic remediation sometimes goes hand-in-hand with wildlife problems because of the damage they can cause to your attic. It is nice to have a company that can deal with all problems associated with nuisance wildlife instead of having to hire separate companies for different services.
Bats are excluded from your home or attic through a live exclusion process. This is done by bat proofing your home with screen, caulking, caps, etc. Also a one-way trap door is installed at the entry point so the bats can get out but not get back in. We are not exterminators or a bat pest control company. We strictly and proudly only use poison free bat control methods. When thinking of exterminator or pest control company we urge you to think of the humane method for bat removal. Bats are protected both federally and in the state of Illinois. No ultrasonic, high frequency device, or bat repellent will get rid of your bats nor keep them out. Moth balls or "bat away" never works. In fact it is harmful to have in your attic or home. FTC gives a warning on the use of ultrasonic pest control devices. For more information check out our "How to Get Rid of Bats" Page.

When you call pest control to get rid of bugs or other small rodents, baits, traps, and poisons might be the best solution. However, when you are seeking bat pest control, you won't find as many companies willing to kill them as a means of removal. Most companies will promote bat removal and exclusion, which is a process of removing the bats out of your home and putting them back in the wild. After the bats are out, the specialist will work to bat-proof your home so that they can't get back in.
Attics are warm and dry, which is perfect for bats. They love the arid attic spaces in people's homes for nesting and giving birth. If you hear scratching, gnawing, or squeaking coming from your attic, don't assume that it is birds and they are harmless. You could very well have a bat problem and not even know it. Bat pest control is designed to inspect your home, find the problem, and remove the bats with your safety and theirs in mind. Pay special attention to sounds that you hear or droppings that you see in your insulation or other attic areas, because this could be a dead giveaway to a bat infestation.
You should never take bat pest control into your own hands. It might seem simple enough to shoo out the bats and seal up your home, but without the proper experience and knowledge of bats and their habits, you could likely make the problem worse. Save yourself the hassle and call a bat control specialist who can help you get rid of the bat problems once and for all. It might be a little more expensive than you wanted, but it will definitely offer a much better solution than trying to take on bat removal by yourself.
