Lake Wales Bat Removal | Trapping | Control | ExterminatorThere are countless critters running, climbing, and flying throughout Lake Wales, but many property owners are still taken by surprise when they find bats in their building. Instead of trying to remove these animals on their own, however, homeowners and business owners should first address their bat infestation by calling the crew at Critter Control® in Lake Wales.

3 Major Health Risks of Not Seeking Professional Bat Removal Services

Attempting to remove any wild animal on your own is incredibly dangerous, but it can be even more detrimental when your building is infested with bats. DIY bat removal increases the risk of scaring bats into the defensive, unpredictable flight, and it elevates the likeliness that you’ll contract a bat-borne virus, such as:

1. Rabies

Rabies isn’t most commonly found in bats, but this well-known viral infection still requires immediate treatment to avoid fatal side effects.

2. Hantavirus

Bats often carry Hantavirus without showing any symptoms at all, which means you won’t be able to tell if you’re at risk of infection.

3. Coronavirus

While most cases of coronavirus are mild, they can present life-threatening symptoms for humans with weaker immune systems.

Legal Risks of Bat Removal

During certain times of the year in Lake Wales — and the entire state of Florida — any form of bat removal, exclusion, or extermination is strictly prohibited. Commonly known as bat maternity season, this annual wildlife initiative protects endangered species essential to the state’s ecosystem. Property owners that attempt bat removal any time during the season will face extreme legal consequences, which is why the team at Critter Control® of Polk County strongly advises against anything other than professional insight for your bat infestation issue.

Critter Control of Lake Wales 4 Step Risk-Free Bat Removal Process 

No matter the time of year or the type of bat, make Critter Control® of Polk County your first call at the first sign of an infestation. Trained and licensed to effectively handle your commercial or residential wildlife issue, our technicians have created a bat removal system that isn’t just safe for you but for critters, too. Our CritterSafe® bat exclusion solution includes:

1. Inspection

After your first call, we’ll send our wildlife technicians to come and inspect your property.

2. Exclusion

Unless your infestation occurs during the bat maternity season, we can immediately start on a humane exclusion system.

3. Prevention

To help keep bats from reentering your home or business, we’ll repair holes, seal cracks, and close gaps all around your building.

4. Sanitation

Bat droppings, or guano, can create toxic spores that spread airborne illness to humans, which is why our team takes the time to sanitize the area after a bat infestation.

If you discover an infestation during the bat maternity season, we can still inspect your property to create a comprehensive exclusion solution to implement as soon as the season ends. This will help you from facing legal ramifications, and it will protect endangered bat species from losing their newborn pups.
