What is bat removal in Charleston WV?

It’s the process of removing a bat colony (bat family) from a structure humanely. The process usually requires the use of a “One Way Bat Door” or bat cone that allows the bat colony to exit or leave the house without allowing the bats to regain entrance back into the house.

The one way bat door is only effective if the entire perimeter of the home or business structure is sealed properly. When sealing the property the use of silicone caulk and other industry standard sealing products are used to properly seal all access points that the bat or bats may try to use to regain entrance to the home.

A bat can be tenacious and can fit into the smallest of voids or areas that are open, in fact it can be be extremely difficult for the do it yourself homeowner to find and seal all the areas that a bat kind find the access the home. This is because most of the areas a bat will gain access is on the roof line, gable vents, siding, eaves and any spot the has a hole big enough to allow for access.
