Bat Removal in Pikesville

A homeowner off of Stevenson Road 21208 was desperately searching for a company that provides services for emergency bat removal in Pikesville last Saturday night because he did not know how to get rid of bats. The homeowner called all of the pest control companies in Pikesville but no one answered. He did a search on google for bat control services and found Mid-Atlantic Wildlife Control. The emergency technician from Mid-Atlantic Wildlife Control quickly responded to the call.

They sealed up all of the entry points that the bats were using causing the bats to become trapped inside the attic. Since this was an old home there were gaps around the light fixtures in the ceilings. The bats found one of these gaps around the light fixture in the homeowners bedroom. The homeowner and his wife had to get rabies shots as a precautionary measure because the bats were flying around in the bedroom while they were sleeping on three different nights.

If you wake up in the night and find bats flying around in the room do not release them by opening a window. Each bat must be tested for rabies but if the bats are released anyone that was in the room sleeping will have to immediately get their rabies shots.

Bat Removal in Cockeysville

Bat Removal in Cockeysville

This year seems to be the year for bat removal in Cockeysville, Maryland. More than the average annual number of homeowners have been calling in to pest control companies in Cockeysville that perform bat control services. Unfortunately most of the exterminator’s and pest control companies in Cockeysville are great at getting bugs out of a house but they don’t know how to get rid of bats. Most of these pest control companies in Cockeysville use out dated techniques that do not provide a permanent fix. Many of the techniques they use either cause the bats to become trapped in your attic or walls. When the bats become trapped they will either panic and find their way into the main living space of your home or they will die in the walls or attic. Even a small colony of dead bats will create a very bad odor throughout your home for about two weeks. Many of the so called bat control services that exterminators use for bat removal in Cockeysville are illegal. Some exterminators will spray bug killer on the bats in your attic causing them to die which is highly illegal. A homeowner off of Sherwood Road, Cockeysville 21030 discovered a colony of about 50 bats living in their attic. Since the homeowners lived in a historic home they were very concerned about the quality of the work. They called several pest control companies in Cockeysville. The homeowners decided to have the two companies that offered a free inspection come out. The homeowners decided to use the company that provided the cheapest estimate after the inspections were compete. Without doing any research they hired a man that claimed he was a bat expert and knew everything about bat control services. He also claimed that he had been providing services for bat removal in Cockeysville for over a decade. His estimate included the eviction of the bats, sealing up the roof line and soffit to prevent the bats from re-entering and bat dropping (guano) removal. His estimate also included a 5 year warranty. The warranty said he would return at no charge and seal up any area he may have missed if bats got back in. As the old saying goes “you get what you pay for”. It’s usually never a good idea to use any contractor that offers a free inspection or a contractor that gives the lowest estimate. Unfortunately for the homeowners the individual that claimed he was a bat expert and claimed he know how to get rid of bats was a conman. He didn’t remove any of the bat guano (droppings) from the attic even though the homeowner paid for it. He didn’t do the seal up work properly and the bats got back in. Also, he trapped some of the bats inside a wall cavity causing them to die. The appearance of the exterior soffit / roofline was left an eye sour and the quality of work was poor at best. These are just of few of the many problems but to top it off he refused to return and honor the warranty. In the photo above notice the red arrows pointing at some of the wide gap that the individual that claimed to be an expert for bat removal in Cockeysville left at the edge of the soffit. This wide gap runs along the entire edge of the roof that meets the vertical wall. The Big Brown Bat is the species of bat that was inhabiting this home. This species of bat only needs a hole the size of a quarter to enter a home so there is plenty of room for them to enter this roof line. The individual that the homeowner first hired attempted to evict the bats by draping a  mesh over the gap. This procedure did not work and it usually doesn’t. The homeowner paid this individual to evict the bats and seal up these wide gaps but that didn’t happen. The homeowners hired this contractor that labeled his self as a bat control expert to perform the bat eviction, sealing up the gaps, and removing the bat droppings. Notice the red arrows in the photo above that are pointing at several piles of bat droppings (guano) that the contractor did not remove. There are several more piles like this throughout the attic. If you are in need of a reputable company that provides services for bat removal in Cockeysville be sure to do some research on the company before hiring them.
