Bats Trapping and Removal
PORTLAND OR – VANCOUVER, CAMAS, & LONGVIEW WA
As a rule, bats prefer to avoid any interaction with humans. They choose to shield themselves from extreme temperature fluctuations and their natural predators. Bats can endure the hot temperatures of church steeples, home attics, storage sheds, barns, and trees.
Bats are found throughout a wide geographic area. Because their primary source of food is insects, bats are happy wherever they can find a generous supply of insects and temperate weather. This means several different species are found throughout the majority of North America.
Successful Bat Removal
For successful bat removal, begin by investigating and evaluating where the bats are nesting. Making two inspections is usually necessary to fully comprehend the requirements for removal.
- The first inspection should take place at dusk to determine the infestation’s size as the bats leave for their evening feeding. This inspection exposes the bats’ exact exit points from their location.
- The second inspection should take place during the day while the bats are sleeping to assess the species of bat, observe their sleeping patterns, their roosting site, and the building’s structure to verify the equipment required to effectively control the bats.

Contact poses severe medical complications
Without a professional bat removal team, exposure to serious medical conditions could arise. Bats are known to carry disease that affects even the healthiest humans.
- Rabies – Bats carry rabies, and working near their excrement and urine increases the chance of exposure.
- Histoplasma Capsulatum – Bat droppings develop a fungus that can cause lung disease.
- Parasites – Bats harbor parasites such as bat bugs, ticks, and fleas.
Bat Exclusion Services
Only bat exclusion experts should take on bat infestations. Pioneer Home Services Northwest has a team trained for this kind of removal. Bat exclusion requires the use of one-way traps installed on buildings when the bat pups cannot get stuck in the roosting area. When the building is free of the bats the one-way traps will be removed. The roost can then be sanitized and treated while all openings will be sealed to complete the exclusion.
