Bat Removal Services

Many people share the misunderstanding that bats suck blood, but fewer than five of over 2,000 bat species actually do—none of which live in Michigan. The most common species of bats in Michigan are the little brown bat and the northern long-eared bat. Bats contribute to the ecosystem by eating several pounds of insects per night and keeping populations of the fellow common pest down. Unfortunately, as beneficial as bats may be to nature, they are not beneficial to have near your family and pets. If you are dealing with bat problems and require bat control, bat exclusion, and bat prevention services, call the professionals at Critter Control of Ann Arbor today or contact us here!

Bat removal in Ann ArborA major benefit of bat control for Ann Arbor homeowners is protection against the diseases they can transfer to humans and pets. Some common problems that crop up from bats include:

  • Guano piles—the odor and stains are unfortunate, and the guano itself can cause disease.
  • Bats can make their way into homes through holes as small as a dime (6mm).
  • Especially in the warmer summer months, bats (especially baby bats) can get into homes flying in through open windows or doors.
  • Bat droppings, or guano, is considered in certain places to be effective fertilizer, but the generally held belief is that it is extremely hazardous to human health. The fungal spores it contains can cause a respiratory disease known as histoplasmosis.

Another misconception about bats is that they carry rabies, but in fact, less than 1/2% of all bats actually carry the virus. Even so, we do not recommend handling bats without experience and proper protective equipment, as the flying critters do transmit other diseases.

  • In order to keep colonies of bats out of your attics, prevention methods like covering/sealing all vents, holes, chimneys, windows, and gaps leading inside homes will help discourage bats from coming onto your property.
  • Fast bat control is of the essence when you have bats in your home, and we recognize this, so contact the professionals!
