The Hoary Bat, also known as Lasiurus Cinereus, is one of the United States’ largest bats. The Hoary Bat( Lasiurus Cinereus ) has a very distinctive look. The fur of the bat is long, dense with white at the tips of the fur. It’s very rare for people to see the Hoary Bat unclose because this bat tries to stay hidden in foliage more so than homes. However, you could find a Hoary Bat right in your backyard, especially if you leave near forest borders. As summer approaches and we all spend more time outdoors, even after dark, we have more of a chance encountering hoary bats. Hoary bats can make flying trips up to 24 miles for the average round trip. If you frequently spot birds around your home, there’s a good chance hoary bats are not too far behind because the bats migrate groups like birds and the hoary bats follow the same traveling waves as birds. If you find Hoary bats on your property, the best solution is humane bat removal. The reason you should hire a professional Wildlife Control Technician in Anne Arundel County, Howard County Maryland or Montgomery County Maryland is based on Hoary Bats being essential members of our ecosystem. The bats eat insects to help keep our population of insects under control. It’s important to have a professional wildlife control technician remove hoary bats from your property as soon as possible to protect your family from the following commensal/ parasitic species hoary bats carry:
- Oochoustica Taborensis
- Chiroptonysus Americanus
- Pteracarus Chalinolbus

It’s spring. The flowers are blooming and birds are chirping. During this time of the year, we receive many calls from homeowners in Bethesda, Silver Spring and Annapolis with concerns about birds nesting in vents. Birds can nest in a variety of vents at the home, including unprotected bathroom vents, dryer vents, and kitchen vents. Why do birds nest in home vents? They see the vents as safe nesting spots away from the dangers of predators. In fact, many different species of birds prefer to raise their young in vents.
What are the dangers of having bird nests in vents?
When birds nest in your vents, they can clog your vents and prevent proper ventilation. The birds create their nests from debris that are flammable and foul-smelling. It is important that you hire a professional bird technician to remove bird nests from your vents because the Migratory Bird Treaty Act of 1918 makes it illegal for homeowners to remove active nests, no matter how inconvenient it maybe for them. Not to mention, bird nests carry both bacteria and mites that make it dangerous for people to handle if they do not know proper bird nest removal techniques. The birds that nest in vents are known as cavity nesters. English house sparrows and European Starlings are common cavity nesters. Here at Mid Atlantic Wildlife Control, our bird control technicians are ready to evict birds ( baby birds are transported to wildlife rehabilitation locations) from Bethesda, Silver Spring, and Annapolis residential properties. After the bird eviction is completed, our bird technicians appropriately remove all nesting materials the birds have packed into vents and install new bird proof vent covers to prevent birds from re-entering vents.
