Attic Restoration: If wildlife has inhabited the attic of your home or building, attic restoration is an important part of a complete wildlife control solution. Attic restoration basically means restoring your attic to the good, clean condition it was in before wildlife decided to move in and make a mess of things. Animals in attics can cause the following problems: Lots of poop and urine in the insulation, Nesting material and food debris through the attic, Odor problems inside the home, Growth of mold on contaminated attic areas, Parasites, roundworm, and other pathogens, Pheromone scent that can attract new wildlife. So it's important to address these problems by cleaning, decontaminating, and restoring the attic to its original state. This is done through several steps. The proper training and equipment is required, such as a HEPA filter mask and biohazard suit, as seen to the right. Attic restoration can be quick and cheap, or intensive and expensive, depending on the amount that needs to be cleaned. Homeowner's insurance may cover the cost.

With the young bats well able to fly, it seems that bats are showing up everywhere! They have been found in attics and chimneys in Illinois on a regular basis.

With the abundant source of water in the area such as Lake Michigan, it creates a virtual bonanza of insects on the bat's menu.

Combine this food supply with plenty of homes and commercial buildings for roosting and that makes for the perfect situation if you are a bat!

What do bats look for when selecting a roosting site?

One important thing is it must be out of the weather. The inside of an attic or cave makes for some of the best locations that are out of the wind and rain. Air flow is equally important. Bats love to select areas where the air flows across their bodies keeping them cool. The inside of an attic can reach 130 degrees and bats could not live for long in this environment without the air flow.

Professional removal is the best solution to your bat pest control problem. Trying to resolve this problem by yourself often makes it worse. Bats carry rabies and should not be handled. If you should find one outside the home or building that is laying on the ground, do not pick it up! Each year people are bitten because they picked up a bat they thought was dead. This could be a sign that the bat is rabid.

Call a professional to have them examine your home if you suspect a bat infestation. Your Wildlife Professional in Lake County and surrounding area is U.S. Wildlife Removal Service.
