With a customer-first mentality, our team here at VG looks forward to doing business with you, whether you are a homeowner or a commercial business manager looking for solutions to bat infestation.
Bat problems occur when exposed gaps exist in a home or building. A bat can gain entry through any crevice wider than 3 pennies stacked, which is very, very small, so these areas need to all be located and thoroughly bat-proofed to keep the bats out for good. On larger buildings, you can imagine there are a lot of places that need to be sealed. Even on a smaller home, the bat removal process can take hours. Furthermore, it can be dangerous for an untrained person or incompetent operator working from these heights.
Varment Guard Wildlife Services and their Decatur Illinois Bat Removal team are the go-to company when you have a bat infestation.
You can rest assured that Varment Guard’s Decatur Illinois Bat Removal specialists are among the leading professional businesses in the wildlife control industry. When it comes to bats, working from heights is part of the job description. The rigorously trained VG technicians handle all sizes of Decatur bat removal jobs, and we’ll continue getting them done without a scratch, time and time again. Even if an accident were to occur, Varment Guard is fully insured to protect our customers from any liability on the job.
Now, let’s get into how we manage bat problems and perform our Decatur bat removal services. To remove bats from a building, we utilize a device known as a “one-way excluder” or “bat valve.” To physically get rid of the bats, we install these devices over the primary entry points to ensure the bats can make their way out but not back in. Furthermore, detailed sealing work is required around the entire building to ensure the bats cannot find another way inside. This sealing process is known as “bat-proofing.”
On an average-sized home, several dozen areas may need sealing and repair. Homebuilders often do not consider bats or other pests during a build, and so many areas can be left vulnerable to a bat problem, even on a brand new house.
Our Decatur Illinois Bat Removal Experts Excel At Attic Cleanup And Bat Guano Decontamination
After the bats are out, you may consider having the attic restored. Insurance can frequently help with this. Depending on the severity of the bat problem, guano may have accumulated on insulation and drywall in the attic space. These situations can be especially hazardous due to the health risks associated with bat guano.
Our fully equipped Decatur Illinois Bat Removal team offers attic restoration in conjunction with the bat removal service. Our attic decontamination team will remove all the insulation and bat droppings from the structure, sanitize with disinfectant, and blow in new insulation. Upon completion, we restore attics and crawl spaces to brand new conditions. On top of that, as a result of our superior Decatur insulation service, you will also save money on heating and cooling costs.
How Our Decatur Illinois Bat Removal Team Performs Bat Proofing Services
Bat proofing is a highly detailed service that involves accessing nearly all the angles around your roofline. Bats typically do not enter homes from areas lower than 8ft, and so the main areas of concern are always around the roofline. Soffits, dormers, gable ends, roof vents, and many other locations may be examined by our Decatur Illinois Bat Removal experts depending on what is present in your home’s construction.
Depending on the situation, we may apply both caulking and screening to the open gaps where bats can gain entry. The particular materials Decatur Illinois Bat Removal use last the test of time, and so all bat proofing services come with a guaranteed warranty, so you are covered if the bats come back. We take pride in a job well done, so you can rest assured your bat problems will be solved permanently, the first time.

A Few Things To Know Concerning Bat Problems
Bats are amazing animals, but when they get into buildings, they can cause severe damage with their waste and urine, contaminating structures to sometimes unlivable conditions. That, however, is the extent of damage bats will cause generally. See, bats do NOT chew on wires or other materials in your attic, as rodents do.
Interestingly, that is another common misconception – bats are not rodents. Instead, they are classified as flying mammals. Rodents such as rats, mice, and squirrels are characterized by their two long front teeth, which they use to chew relentlessly on building materials such as wires and boards when they invade a structure.
Bats, however, do not have these two distinctive front teeth. In place of that is an intimidating mouth full of tiny, razor-sharp teeth! But don’t let it fool you; the bats use these to grind mosquitos and other tasty insects. Moreover, a bat can eat up to 8,000 mosquitos in 1 night! Since bats feed exclusively on insects, their oval-shaped guano pellets can often be recognized by a shiny-like surface, which are the remains of insect wings.
Another common issue concerning bat infestation is bats showing up inside living quarters, often during late-night hours. These occurrences can cause a great deal of stress as the winged critters take flight, circling around at great speeds, swooping by our heads, and finally landing somewhere before taking off again. When a bat problem is left unaddressed, these occurrences will often repeat, time and time again, until the bat colony is finally evicted from the house.
At Varment Guard Wildlife Service our Decatur Illinois Bat Removal team are also experts in all other forms of wildlife control.
Many people will unpleasantly discover they have a bat issue in the first place when the bats decide to pop in for a personal visit. Do not fret; Varment Guard Wildlife Services is on the job! We want to leave you bat-free by humanely excluding the bats from your home or business permanently.
Lastly, all bat species are federally protected, which means we can’t kill the bats or handle them inhumanely, causing injury. To sum up the process, our goal is to let the bats find their way outside alive and unharmed through one-way devices. And then, we prevent them from reentering any other spot by performing the bat-proofing process.
If you ever call a company about your bat problem and their plan involves killing, trapping, or harming the bats, steer clear since that company is highly unethical and breaks the law. The only exception when euthanizing a bat is acceptable is when it has potentially come into contact with people, or perhaps a house pet, and the situation deems it necessary to have that bat tested for rabies. Other than that, bat removal is always done via live-exclusion.
