Bat Removal

Bats can be found all over the world. there are many varieties of species
of bats in the world. In Pittsburgh PA there are many
species of bats, though usually only two species found intruding into
homes, church, and business. The removal of bats from a home or property
must be accomplished to solve the wildlife conflict. Bat removal can be extremely tricky even for seasoned wildlife experts. When facing bat proofing issues its best to use a local pest control or bat control service.

Bats in the attic

When bats find their way into an attic
space it can be disastrous. Once a bat colony establishes itself in the
attic bats will begin to defecate or poop where they roost. of course
since bats hung basically upside down the bat droppings tend to pile up
on the insulation below. After a while these piles of bat guano
can begin to become very heavy and even break through the ceiling
drywall causing a dangerous mess in the home or business in Pittsburgh.

Bat Exclusion

Bat exclusion is the process or removing the bats or excluding bats
from the property. Bat proofing in Pittsburgh or sealing bats out are
all the same process. The repair process itself can be extremely tedious
even for a trained professional.

Bat guano clean up or attic clean up or restoration

Once the bat infestation is removed from the house it is important to
clean or remove the bat guano from the attic, eaves or both safely. The
bat feces carry a multitude of diseases and bat bugs (a species of bed bugs)
are typically left behind. It is best to have a trained local pest
animal control agent (wildlife removal) to perform the bat guano clean
up in Pittsburgh.

When faced with bat removal needs just make sure to use a reputable
Wildlife Control company, though often a little more expensive than a
pest control company it usually for the best due to the experience level. You get what you pay is what my father always said and I believe that true even to this day!

Bat Removal from your home can be a daunting task. In most instances
it is necessary to have a Wildlife Professional to assist you in this
endeavor. Bats can fit into the smallest of voids or openings in fact if
you can fit a match book into the void a bat can get in it.  Its no
wonder very few wildlife professionals can handle this task.

The Wildlife Professionals
can remove theses pest whether the bats  are in your attic, soffit or
chimney we can remove them safely and humanely. the Wildlife Pros at
Akron Ohio are the clear choice for Greensboro Bat Control. Trained,
certified and licensed our techs are highly trained to accomplish your
bat removal process.

 

Bats are the only true flying mammals. There are many species in Greensboro and all of them are beneficial insect eaters, consuming
literally tons of harmful insects each night. The most common species to
move into houses is the Little Brown Bat (Myotis lucifugus).
These small animals are about 3-1/2 inches long with an 8 inch
wingspread. Their colors range from yellow-brown to dark brown.

Little Brown Bats roost in groups and are drawn to hot attics and
wall voids in the spring and summer to bear their young (one per female)
from about June-August. In the fall, most of these bats fly to winter
hibernation roosts in caves or old mine shafts.

Health Hazards

Bats in Greensboro North Carolina should not be regarded as dangerous. However, about one bat in a
thousand MAY have rabies which eventually kills them. Little Brown Bats
cannot easily transmit this disease to humans or pets due to their small
teeth but problems can arise from trying to touch or pick up a sick
bat. Unprovoked attacks are extremely rare.

If bitten by a bat or if infectious material (such as saliva) from a
bat gets into your eyes, nose, mouth, or a wound — wash the affected
area thoroughly and get medical advice immediately. If a bat is found in
a room with a sleeping person, capture it without damaging the head and
place it in a container (See the Greensboro CDC page on “Bats and Rabies”
for more information and correct procedures). Dead bats should be kept
under refrigeration until tested. Contact your Greensboro NC Health District as
soon as possible. To avoid this disease, simply avoid touching bats, be
sure your house is bat-proof (at least the living area) and be sure your
pets are vaccinated. Call your veterinarian for vaccination
information.

Histoplasmosis is another hazard in some states . This airborne
disease may be carried in bird and bat droppings. Few people exposed to
this fungal disease become seriously ill but there is a potential risk
of infection to any one removing or disturbing old, dusty bird or bat
guano.

Bats are throughout the United States and are becoming an ever increasing nuisance wildlife that intrudes into more and more homes and businesses each year. Bat removal and bat control issues in Greensboro has grown to such an conflict and issue that ir has spawned a whole new industry. Bat Control and bat removal professionals in North Carolina must pass a classroom training course and pass a written test before they can remove wildlife such as bats from your attic or your business. Bats are a protected animal and must be treated as such.

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

Wichita Bat in the Attic Call 316.712.4211

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!

It 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.
