Not only do bats infest the attics and soffits of peoples homes, but a lot of times bats invade the chimney. Control and removal of these bats is our specialty. Once the bats are in the chimney, you will begin seeing bats inside living quarters because there will commonly be an open flu in the chimney which the bats can easily slip through. Removing the bats from the chimney in one thing, but other steps must be taken in order to keep them out of the entire residence with a warranty. After the bats are excluded from the chimney, we will then seal all areas around the house to prevent re-entry. Bats will find these areas by flying around the home listening for drafts coming out of the attic. And THEY WILL do this after they cannot access the chimney anymore. We provide bat removal from chimneys and attics in the cities of Marysville, Delaware, Powell, Dublin, Hilliard, Worthington, Westerville, Upper Arlington, Lewis Center, Bexley, and the rest of Greater Columbus Ohio.

Homeowners will commonly find bat waste coming down into the fire place when they have bats infesting the chimney. Removal of bats from the chimney is done by installing one-way exclusion valves enabling the bats to fly out of the chimney unharmed. As mentioned above, when the bats return they will search for other areas of entry after they cannot get back inside the chimney. Bat removal jobs are done with a warranty on a FULL EXCLUSION. Although we can still provide the service of bat exclusion on the areas where the bats are mainly coming in and out of the chimney. It will be cheaper than the full exclusion, and we will not pressure you in the decision, we only want to inform you of the possibility the bats will be able to access your attic after removed from the chimney. Bats in the attic is much more severe of a problem than bats in the chimney, because they will shed waste and urine all over the attic and after that is done by the bats, attic remediation becomes a necessary process due to disease exposure risks from the bat waste / guano in the insulation and on attic support beams. These contaminated areas must be sanitized & decontaminated due to the bat guano being a hazard.

Bat waste can be very hazardous, having a high potential to develop residual bacteria in high heat levels. The main bacteria the feces can develop is known as histoplasmosis. This disease once exposed to humans attacks the respiratory system causing neurologic disorders such as changes in vision. The first symptoms of exposure include the common cold and feelings of drained energy. However, in most human exposure cases extreme breakouts are rare and seldom exceed the first symptoms of the cold or flu. People with weak immune systems are at far greater risk of developing more serious symptoms.

We at Pestco Wildlife offer the service of cleaning up this waste and sanitizing the area ensuring no bacteria has the chance to become a nuisance. We use special bacteria killing remedies in the mixture we use for the clean up of the bat guano. Check out our attic remediation page at the top next to the home page. There we go into detail about the attic remediation process and what must be done for the safety of your families. Control & Removal of bats from the chimney is our specialty here at Pestco Wildlife. Keep us in mind too if you ever have raccoon problems, we are about just as good at raccoon jobs - I guess its just a natural talent one might say.

The bats will also have to be excluded from the chimney. We do this by installing one-way exclusion tubes around the chimney and then also sealing any potential area's the bats could re-enter the structure. If you want to go the cheap route of exclusion and only pay for the exclusion valves, a warranty will not be included. If you go with our complete service which is recommended of putting the bat exclusion tubes up AND having us seal the rest of the areas, the bat job will come with an extended warranty to protect you from future bat infestations.
