Bat Control Your Hometown Exterminator

Bat Control in Sumter and Lake County, FL

Bats typically reside in natural environments that offer protection from the elements and predators. A bat can eat thousands of insects each night, making them a natural form of pest control. While ecologically beneficial, they become a serious concern when they find new roosting spots within human-made structures. 

Many bat species are protected by law and cannot be removed or disturbed without proper permits and methods. At BPS, we stay updated on the latest bat control techniques and regulations to provide the most efficient solutions. Our technicians are trained to identify the species of bats inhabiting your property and tailor our approach accordingly. We use eco-friendly methods that respect wildlife while safeguarding human health and property.

Where Do Bats Roost?

Bats are adaptable creatures that can find comfort in various environments that mimic the conditions of their natural habitats. Common roosting sites for bats include:

  • Dark, undisturbed attic areas
  • Under eaves and soffits for shelter
  • Narrow spaces behind shutters
  • Unused or uncapped chimneys
  • Within wall voids through cracks or holes
  • In barns and outbuildings
  • Natural habitats like caves or abandoned mines
  • Hollow or loose-barked trees

Signs of a Bat Infestation

Bats are generally nocturnal and quiet, so their presence can go unnoticed for some time. However, several signs may indicate a bat infestation, including:

  • Scratching or squeaking sounds from walls or attic
  • Accumulation of bat droppings (guano) beneath roosting areas
  • Regular sightings of bats near or on your property at dusk or dawn
  • Ammonia-like smell from accumulated droppings and urine
  • Small openings or gaps in the building's exterior as potential entry points
  • Greasy smudges around holes or cracks from bat fur
  • Increased insect activity around the home
  • Stains and strong odors from bat urine

If you notice any of these signs, contact us to confirm whether you have a bat problem and recommend the best course of action. We do not recommend handling bats on your own due to the risks of disease and legal protections to bats. 

How We Handle Your Bat Problem

Florida Administrative Code regulation 68A-4.001 prohibits harming or killing bats to safeguard these vital creatures. We develop a strategic plan that aligns with Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation (FWC) regulations while protecting bats and the property's inhabitants. Our approach includes:

  • Initial assessment: We conduct a thorough inspection to locate signs of bat activity, identify species, and determine the extent of the infestation.
  • One-way doors: We employ one-way exclusion devices that allow bats to leave but not re-enter, ensuring a humane removal process.
  • Netting and valves: For complex situations, we use specialized netting and valves to guide bats out of structures without causing them harm.
  • Trapping and removal: If exclusion isn't possible, we use safe, humane traps to capture and relocate bats to a suitable habitat away from human dwellings.
  • Home repairs: After exclusion, we seal entry points with durable materials to prevent bats from re-accessing the property.
  • Guano cleanup: Our team safely removes bat guano (droppings) and sanitizes affected areas to eliminate health risks and unpleasant odors.
  • Follow-up: We provide post-exclusion monitoring to ensure bats have not returned and that all preventative measures are secure.

Our practices are not only effective but also mindful of the ecological importance of bats. We aim to secure the safety of bats while addressing the needs of our clients in Sumter County, Lake County, and the surrounding communities.
