Bat Removal from Attic

Bat Removal from Attic: Bats are useful mammals to have around, as they are a great, natural way to control flying insects such as mosquitoes. More and more people are setting up bat houses in their yard to encourage bats to feed on mosquitoes which carry a variety of viruses harmful to humans (including zika virus and malaria). The good of having bats around is outweighed by the bad if they decide to roost in your attic. Bats are more likely to enter the living space of your home if they are roosting in your attic. As they are prominent carriers of rabies, this is a problem that should be addressed. If there is any chance at all that a bat bit someone, precautions must be taken. If the bat is caught without damage to its head, it can be tested for rabies. If it is not caught, then rabies shots must be administered in case rabies is contracted. After rabies symptoms appear, it is too late for the shots to work. Bats also create latrines at their roost site which can cause histoplasmosis in humans. In order to prevent these unsanitary, unsafe conditions, bat should be permanently removed and excluded.

Tri-State Wildlife Management (TSWM) specializes in bat removal and exclusion in the Northern Kentucky area. Many homes and buildings are susceptible to bat entry, as bats can squeeze through a hole smaller than a dime. For this same reason, it is very difficult to permanently exclude them from your residence or business. TSWM has the experience and expertise to rid your home of bats for good. Technicians inspect your entire home to identify entries as well as vulnerable areas. Our goal is to ensure bats will never again gain access into your home to roost, so we are sure to do a thorough job of repairing entries and securing at risk areas. Our work is not only effective, but it is also aesthetically pleasing. We take pride in our ability to permanently exclude bats while maintaining (or improving) the beauty of a home. Materials used are of highest quality, able to withstand not only weather and the elements, but also attempted wild animal entry. Materials used by construction and roofing companies do not take wild animal entry into account. The difference could mean thousands of dollars spent in future wildlife removal and repair.

Some of the telltale signs that you have a bat problem include dark marks near their entry point and bat guano below an entry point. You may also see bats leaving their roost at dusk to feed on flying insects. Bats can often go undetected by property owners and residents, so it may be years before you realize you have a bat problem. At that point, you may be dealing with generations of bats that often use the same roost year after year. In some of the worst cases, you may smell bat latrines (pile of guano and urine) from a living area, or notice a stain on the ceiling or wall. Bat waste can cause histoplasmosis in humans, so safe cleanup procedures and material should always be used.

Bat Removal Boone County, KY

Bat Removal Boone County, KY: Bats become a nuisance when they roost in large numbers in houses and businesses. Despite their usefulness, discovering or even suspecting bats living in your home or business is unsettling. Due to the breeding and roosting habits of bats, timing the removal of a bat colony is crucial to both the success of the exclusion as well as its legality and therefore best left to the experts.

Tri-State Wildlife Management’s technicians are thoroughly trained in bat eviction/venting procedures and educate their customers regarding the best solution to rid their property of a bat invasion. The process starts with a meticulous inspection of the property designed to identify structural defects, as well as current and potential bat entry points that lead into the interiors of the structure. The inspection is intended to assist in the evaluation of the overall bat colony within the condition of the building.

In addition to removal/exclusion services, Tri-State Wildlife Management (TSWM) also offers full and partial attic cleanouts.

Tri-State Wildlife Management – Protecting You, Your Property, and Your Investment

Bat Removal Kenton County, KY: In our area, bats typically hibernate the winter long, the exception being warmer winter days when you may spot a bat(s) outside. Bats often take advantage of the comfort of attics and chimneys, both in the winter and the summer. Crevices of homes make perfect hibernation spots in the winter and maternity colonies or roost sites in the summer. With winter right around the corner, now is the time to rid your attic of bats. If bats have access to your attic now, they are sure to use it as their hibernation site in the colder months.

Fall is the perfect time to remove and exclude bats from your home or business, since bats are not yet hibernating, and all the young born this year are able to fly. Tri-State Wildlife Management (TSWM) uses special vents for the bat removal process which allow bats to leave your attic as normal to hunt while prohibiting reentry. After all bats have left your attic, permanent repairs are made to seal entry and exit points.

Bats are great mammals to have around. If you’ve ever observed a bat feeding at twilight, you already know why – they eat a variety of flying insects, including mosquitoes. Despite the advantages of having bats around, there are many serious disadvantages to having them in your home. First, they can create significant damage to structures. Bats create foul latrines, made up of both guano and urine that cause a horrible odor, soil insulation, and can weaken the structure. When entering and exiting a structure, bats defecate, leaving staining along the home. In addition, they leave black, oily rub marks at entries.

Bats also pose health/hygiene concerns including rabies, histoplasmosis, and bat bugs. When bats transmit rabies, it is most typically through a bite. If bitten, the bat should always be tested if it can be caught. If the bat is not caught, or if it tests positive for rabies, rabies shots must be taken. Without treatment, rabies ends in death. Sometimes a bat is found in the living space of a home. If the bat had access to children or anyone who may not know/may not be able to communicate that they’ve been bitten, rabies shots are encouraged. Although the most serious, rabies is not the most common threat that bats pose. Histoplasmosis is a common lung disease caused by a fungus that grows on guano. It is important to always wear the proper protective gear when in the same vicinity as bat guano, as the fungus is easily disturbed. Although bat bugs pose no serious health threat, just like bed bugs, they are a parasitic nuisance to be avoided.

Mole Trapping Northern KY

November 8th, 2016

Are moles ruining your yard? Call Tri-State Wildlife Management (TSWM) today to set up an inspection! (859) 635-0037.

Mole Trapping Northern KY

Moles become quite a nuisance when they take up residence inyour yard. Although you will never see a mole since they live exclusively underground, they very literally leave paths of destruction as evidence of their presence. They can dig at a rate of 18 feet per hour, so it doesn’t take long for them to noticeably damage your lawn. Moles have runways and burrows deep beneath the surface of your lawn, but they also have surface tunnels, which are shallow, underground paths used for hunting worms, insects, and grubs. Moles create ridges in your yard when tunneling just below the surface. You may also spot mole mounds, which are accumulated dirt from tunneling. Moles do more damage than create unsightly ridges and mole mounds in your yard; they also kills grass and plants. When moles dig surface tunnels, it causes the roots to disengage from the surrounding soil. In the winter, the roots freeze from lack of insulation from the soil, killing the grass or plants. In the warmer months, the roots lose their access to the water from the soil. If not corrected, the the affected grass/plants die.

To take the guess work out of mole management, a trapping program should be implemented to ensure the violating mole can no longer be a nuisance. There are many home remedies that claim to rid your lawn or garden of moles, but there are no repellents or frightening devices that are proven effective (Internet Center for Wildlife Damage Management). If the mole isn’t removed, problems will continue to arise. Trapping is the most effective and safest method of mole control, therefore the method used by Tri-State Wildlife Management. TSWM is fully licensed and insured, and we stand behind all our work. Let us take care of your mole problem for you!

Bat Removal Covington, KY

Bat Removal Covington, KY: Like every fall, Tri-State Wildlife Management (TSWM) is busy with bat work, including bat inspections and bat exclusionNow is the perfect time to take care of any bat problem you may have before bats begin hibernating in your attic.

Bat exclusion work involves sealing and repairing all current bat entries and exits, as well as all other construction gaps on your home. TSWM repairs all construction gaps on your home because they are areas susceptible to future bat entry. Once bats are prevented from using their current entry and exit points, they will attempt to gain access to the structure by other means. Sealing up vulnerable areas prevents bats from gaining access back into your home.

The same principles apply to condos and apartment complexes, schools, churches, hospitals and more – all at-risk/vulnerable areas should be sealed so that bats do not find another way into the structure once excluded from using their main entry points. Although TSWM always strongly advises going about bat exclusion in this way, the decision is ultimately up to the customer. Unfortunately, if other potential entries are not sealed, bats almost always find their way back in. It is much more cost effective to seal up the home before bats can reenter.

TSWM also offers full and partial attic cleanups. TSWM employees are trained in safe and effective methods of removing bat guano and contaminated insulation. In addition to the foul smell and unsanitary conditions, accumulated bat droppings can support the growth of histoplasmosis, an airborne fungal disease very common in the Tri-State Area. Due to the risk of exposure to diseases such as histoplasmosis, proper protective gear and equipment is vital to a safe and effective cleanup. For more information concerning bat exposure visit, the Center for Disease Control Website at: www.cdc.gov. TSWM is dedicated to resolving our customers’ bat problems and preventing bat issues in the future. Tri-State Wildlife Management is fully licensed and insured, and we stand behind all our work.

Mole Removal Northern KY

Northern Kentuckians are familiar with the eastern mole, which is prevalent from the Atlantic coast to the Great Plains, and from Michigan into Florida. Moles live underground their entire lives in a network of underground runway tunnels and burrows. Moles are solitary animals, but on occasion their tunnels may intersect with the independent tunnels of another mole. Multiple moles may live underneath the same yard, and sometimes are trapped at the same spot. Moles have both deep tunnels that lead to their denning sites or nesting area, as well as shallow, surface tunnels that are used for feeding. Feeder tunnels may be used once and then left abandoned, while others may be used multiple times. Moles never have runways above ground. Homeowners usually realize they have a mole problem when they see raised grass from underground surface tunnels, or when they see mole mounds. Mole mounds are made when excess dirt is pushed out of the ground as a mole tunnels.

Moles are a nuisance when they occupy a yard, because their surface tunnels kill grass and plants, as well as leave unsightly raised ridges in the lawn. Plants and grass die from shallow surface tunnels because the roots are disengaged from the soil. In the warmer months, the plants and grass may die because they no longer have the soil as a source of water. During the winter, roots freeze from the lack of insulation soil provides.

Moles continuously dig in search of food, at a rate of eighteen feet per hour, and move forward and backward eighty feet per minute. They eat from 70% to 100% of their weight in earthworms and insects each day to supply the energy for constant tunneling. They prefer to hunt in cool, moist soil, where worms and insects can be found in abundance. Den sites are usually in high, dry ground, although deeper beneath the surface. Moles cover more underground area than most subterranean animals because of their food requirements. During the colder months, and during bouts of hot weather, moles dig deeper beneath the surface. So even during the winter when you may not see new ridges or mounds in your yard, moles continue to be active.

Now is the perfect time to remove moles from your yard. It is difficult to impossible to remove moles once the ground is frozen, so don’t delay. Call Tri-State Wildlife Management today so a trapping program can begin before freezing temperatures set in! (859) 635-0037.
