When bats move into your home or business it can be scary. a bat in the house is typically a sign of a larger issue that might not have even been noticed. As a wildlife removal expert we have found that every year bat removal in Greensboro has had an increase in call volume of bat removal and bat control issues homeowners and business owner are having.

A great bat removal company can not only remove the problem bat issue, They should be able and experienced in bat exclusion or bat proofing in Greensboro. A well rounded nuisance animal removal company can not only remove the bat issue , it should remove the harmful or hazardous guano or bat waste from the infected area, Disinfect the infected bat area and replace the insulation if needed .

Bat proofing is the exclusion, repair or preventative maintenance of the property  to ensure no future bat animal conflicts. This process can involve sealing and carpentry work.

Bat extermination is not only bad for the environment it is actually illegal. Do not let a so called “Bat Extermination Pro” trap or kill the bat colony or bat infestation in your Greensboro home. Bats only have one offspring or baby  per female and a female may or may not have a baby every year. Bat colonies take time to grow and we have to have them. They are extremely beneficial to our environment!

It is recommended that bat professionals do not engage in bat removal services from May to the first of August due to the bat baby rearing. If a wildlife removal company tries to persuade you otherwise call your local fish and wildlife agency or D.N.R.

Classification and evolution

Bats are mammals. In many languages, the word for “bat” is cognate with the word for “mouse”: for example, chauve-souris (“bald-mouse”) in French, murciélago (“blind mouse”) in Spanish, летучая мышь (“flying mouse”) in Russian, slijepi miš (“blind mouse”) in Bosnian, nahkhiir (“leather mouse”) in Estonian, vlermuis (winged mouse) in Afrikaans, from the Dutch word vleermuis. An older English name for bats is flittermice, which matches their name in other Germanic languages (for example German Fledermaus and Swedish fladdermus).[10] Bats were formerly thought to be most closely related to flying lemurs, treeshrews, and primates,[11] but recent molecular cladistics research indicates they actually belong to Laurasiatheria, a diverse group also containing Carnivora and Artiodactyla.[12][13]

The two traditionally recognized suborders of bats are:

Not all megabats are larger than microbats. The major distinctions between the two suborders are:

  • Microbats use echolocation; with the exception of Rousettus and its relatives, megabats do not.
  • Microbats lack the claw at the second toe of the forelimb.
  • The ears of microbats do not close to form a ring; the edges are separated from each other at the base of the ear.
  • Microbats lack underfur; they are either naked or have guard hairs.

Megabats eat fruit, nectar, or pollen, while most microbats eat insects; others may feed on the blood of animals, small mammals, fish, frogs, fruit, pollen, or nectar. Megabats have well-developed visual cortices and show good visual acuity, while microbats rely on echolocation for navigation and finding prey.

The phylogenetic relationships of the different groups of bats have
been the subject of much debate. The traditional subdivision between
Megachiroptera and Microchiroptera reflects the view that these groups
of bats have evolved independently of each other for a long time, from a
common ancestor
already capable of flight. This hypothesis recognized differences
between microbats and megabats and acknowledged that flight has only
evolved once in mammals. Most molecular biological evidence supports the
view that bats form a single or monophyletic group.[14]

Greensboro NC Bat Removal

Researchers have proposed alternate views of chiropteran phylogeny and classification, but more research is needed.

In the 1980s, a hypothesis based on morphological evidence was offered that stated the Megachiroptera evolved flight separately from the Microchiroptera. The so-called flying primates theory proposes that, when adaptations to flight are removed, the Megachiroptera are allied to primates
by anatomical features not shared with Microchiroptera. One example is
that the brains of megabats show a number of advanced characteristics
that link them to primates. Although recent genetic studies strongly
support the monophyly of bats,[15] debate continues as to the meaning of available genetic and morphological evidence.[16]

Genetic evidence indicates megabats originated during the early Eocene and should be placed within the four major lines of microbats.

Consequently, two new suborders based on molecular data have been proposed. The new suborder Yinpterochiroptera includes the Pteropodidae or megabat family, as well as the Rhinolophidae, Hipposideridae, Craseonycteridae, Megadermatidae, and Rhinopomatidae families[17] The new suborder Yangochiroptera
includes all the remaining families of bats (all of which use laryngeal
echolocation). These two new suborders are strongly supported by
statistical tests. Teeling (2005) found 100% bootstrap support in all
maximum likelihood analyses for the division of Chiroptera into these
two modified suborders. This conclusion is further supported by a
15-base-pair deletion in BRCA1 and a seven-base-pair deletion in PLCB4
present in all Yangochiroptera and absent in all Yinpterochiroptera.[17]
The chiropteran phylogeny based on molecular evidence is controversial
because microbat paraphyly implies one of two seemingly unlikely
hypotheses occurred. The first suggests laryngeal echolocation evolved
twice in Chiroptera, once in Yangochiroptera and once in the
rhinolophoids.[18][19] Bats in the attic in Greensboro
The second proposes laryngeal echolocation had a single origin in
Chiroptera, was subsequently lost in the family Pteropodidae (all
megabats), and later evolved as a system of tongue-clicking in the genus
Rousettus.[20]

Common pipistrelle, Pipistrellus pipistrellus

Analyses of the sequence of the “vocalization” gene, FoxP2 was
inconclusive as to whether laryngeal echolocation was secondarily lost
in the pteropodids or independently gained in the echolocating lineages.[21] However, analyses of the “hearing” gene, Prestin seemed to favor the independent gain in echolocating species rather than a secondary loss in the pteropodids.[22]

In addition to Yinpterochiroptera and Yangochiroptera, the names
Pteropodiformes and Vespertilioniformes have also been proposed for
these suborders.[23][24] Bat control in Greensboro, NC
Under this new proposed nomenclature, the suborder Pteropodiformes
includes all extant bat families more closely related to the genus Pteropus than the genus Vespertilio, while the suborder Vespertilioniformes includes all extant bat families more closely related to the genus Vespertilio than to the genus Pteropus.

Little fossil evidence is available to help map the evolution of bats, since their small, delicate skeletons do not fossilize very well. However, a Late Cretaceous
tooth from South America resembles that of an early microchiropteran
bat. Most of the oldest known, definitely identified bat fossils were
already very similar to modern microbats. These fossils, Icaronycteris, Archaeonycteris, Palaeochiropteryx and Hassianycteris, are from the early Eocene period, 52.5 million years ago.[14] Archaeopteropus, formerly classified as the earliest known megachiropteran, is now classified as a microchiropteran.

Bats were formerly grouped in the superorder Archonta along with the treeshrews (Scandentia), colugos (Dermoptera), and the primates,
because of the apparent similarities between Megachiroptera and such
mammals. Genetic studies have now placed bats in the superorder Laurasiatheria, along with carnivorans, pangolins, odd-toed ungulates, even-toed ungulates, and cetaceans.[1]

Flight has enabled bats to become one of the most widely distributed groups of mammals.[29] Apart from the Arctic, the Antarctic and a few isolated oceanic islands, bats exist all over the world.[30]
Bats are found in almost every habitat available on Earth. Different
species select different habitats during different seasons, ranging from
seasides to mountains and even deserts, but bat habitats have two basic
requirements: roosts, where they spend the day or hibernate, and places
for foraging. Bat roosts can be found in hollows, crevices, foliage,
and even human-made structures, and include “tents” the bats construct
by biting leaves.[31]

The United States is home to an estimated 45 to 48 species of bats.[32][33] The three most common species are Myotis lucifugus (little brown bat), Eptesicus fuscus (big brown bat), and Tadarida brasiliensis  Greensboro bat in my house.
(Mexican free-tailed bat). The little and the big brown bats are common
throughout the northern two-thirds of the country, while the Mexican
free-tailed bat is the most common species in the southwest.[34]

 

Bat echolocation is a perceptual system where ultrasonic sounds are
emitted specifically to produce echoes. By comparing the outgoing pulse
with the returning echoes, the brain and auditory nervous system can
produce detailed images of the bat’s surroundings. This allows bats to
detect, localize, and even classify their prey in complete darkness. At
130 decibels in intensity, bat calls are some of the most intense,
airborne animal sounds.[40]

To clearly distinguish returning information, bats must be able to
separate their calls from the echoes they receive. Microbats use two
distinct approaches.

  1. Low duty cycle echolocation: Bats can separate their calls and
    returning echos by time. Bats that use this approach time their short
    calls to finish before echoes return. This is important because these
    bats contract their middle ear muscles when emitting a call, so they can
    avoid deafening themselves. The time interval between call and echo
    allows them to relax these muscles, so they can clearly hear the
    returning echo.[41] The delay of the returning echos provides the bat with the ability to estimate range to their prey.
  2. High duty cycle echolocation: Bats emit a continuous call and
    separate pulse and echo in frequency. The ears of these bats are sharply
    tuned to a specific frequency range. They emit calls outside of this
    range to avoid self-deafening. They then receive echoes back at the
    finely tuned frequency range by taking advantage of the Doppler shift
    of their motion in flight. The Doppler shift of the returning echos
    yields information relating to the motion and location of the bat’s
    prey. These bats must deal with changes in the Doppler shift due to
    changes in their flight speed. They have adapted to change their pulse
    emission frequency in relation to their flight speed so echoes still
    return in the optimal hearing range.[42]

The new Yinpterochiroptera and Yangochiroptera classification of
bats, supported by molecular evidence, suggests two possibilities for
the evolution of echolocation. It may have been gained once in a common
ancestor of all bats and was then subsequently lost in the Old World
fruit bats, only to be regained in the horseshoe bats, or echolocation
evolved independently in both the Yinpterochiroptera and Yangochiroptera
lineages.[43]

Two groups of moths exploit a bat sense to echolocate: tiger moths produce ultrasonic signals to warn the bats they (the moths) are chemically protected or aposematic. This was once thought to be the biological equivalent of “radar jamming“, but this theory has yet to be confirmed. The moths Noctuidae have a hearing organ called a tympanum,
which responds to an incoming bat signal by causing the moth’s flight
muscles to twitch erratically, sending the moth into random evasive
maneuvers. Bat removal

The Wildlife Professionals of Dallas TX can Help

 

We spend a tremendous amount of time in attics where bats have rousted and started their colony during bat inspections for bat removal . Attic spaces are ideal for bats actually. An attic offers safety not only from predators but from the elements as well. Once the bats have colonized it is very difficult for the do it your selfer’s  to get them out and keep them out, not to mention the risk of being bitten and contracting rabies or any of the variables of diseases they can carry. It honestly is best to have a professional help.

 

Most Wildlife professionals use a bat device called” a one way door” or “bat cone” , I have had measured success with the industry standard of these devices , though I also fabricate my own variations of the bat doors when the need arises, truth told not all situations are suitable or sometimes the “industry standard bat door” just isn’t the right equipment needed. This is when a true wildlife professional is needed. A professional who can think outside of the box. Make sure when you are hiring a wildlife profession that they are really wildlife professionals and not just a pest control service trying to remove wildlife. Would you have your dentist remove your appendix?

Wichita Bat Removal and Control call now 316.712.4211

February 14, 2012

Wichita has had issues with bats for as long as there has been homes standing. Kansas bats can fit into an area smaller then a matchbooks width!

Wichita Bat Removal  is one of the most difficult wildlife to exclude or remove.

Bat guano can accumulate and weigh up to 1 and a half tons or more! The picture to the left was taken at a home in Wichita that bats had infested. The weight was over 800 lbs and had to removed by cutting a whole in the ceiling to access it.

Wichita bats range in size across the different species, but tend to average about 2 ¼” to 7 ½” in length (tip to tail) with a wingspread of approximately 6” to 15”. Most weigh between 1/8 oz. and 2 1/8 oz. (in the U.S.). Bats’ bodies are covered with hair varying in color from tan to black. Their wings stretch across elongated arm and finger bones. The most common bats found in homes are the big Brown  Bat and the Small Brown Bat.

Call The Wildlife Professionals of Wichita KS 316.712.4211

Wichita Bats create droppings and urine. Kansas Bat droppings are called guano that is harvested in some parts of the world and is used for fertilizer. Guano may act as a growth medium for microbes including those that can cause disease such as histoplasmosis. Urine can cause a slipping safety hazard on floors and may seep into living spaces if a colony is overhead. Urine evaporates quickly and leaves a crystalline residue.

Rabies in Kansas is probably the most significant public health threat associated with bats. Brown bats are the most common of rabid bats. Note that rabid bats are rare, but this is a good reason why touching a bat with personal protection is imperative. Histoplasmosis, a lung disease, can also develop as the fungus that leads to this disease can thrive in bat guano.
