Bat Removal in Santa Ana

Many bat species live in the United States, including the Big Brown Bat and Mexican Free-Tailed Bat. Because they are sensitive to cold temperatures, bats will roost together in colonies during the winter months so they can share their body heat. The ideal roosting spot for bats is anywhere that is dark and protected and near a food source.

Although bats live in caves, tree hollows, and other places in the wilderness, attics, chimneys, and other places in human structures are also a popular choice.

Bats are fantastic creatures to have around because they help to pollinate plants and control pests like mosquitos. However, if they’re roosting in your home, it’s important to have them removed.

Bats can carry rabies, and their guano can be infected by histoplasmosis, which is a respiratory disease that can easily be passed to humans.

Bat Removal Services

There are many companies in your area that claim to solve bat problems, but it’s important to find a company that will do this properly.

Many that are in the business of wildlife removal will accomplish this by killing the animal. It is illegal to kill bats in California because bats are a protected species. Out of 24 bat species, 10 have been designated as species of special concern. That being said, any company that claims to remove bats but kills them should be avoided. The same is true of companies that use fumigation or traps.

You will want to ensure the company you’ll be working with is licensed to remove bats, has plenty of experience, and will remove bats from your property safely and humanely. Animal Capture Wildlife Control is a licensed bat removal company with the knowledge and experience necessary to accomplish bat removal and protect this important species.

How It Works – Bat Removal Process

Our company removes bats by exclusion. We don’t kill, fumigate, trap, or otherwise forcibly remove bats from your home; rather, we exclude bats.

Exclusion devices allow bats to fly freely out of a roost, but don’t allow them to re-enter. When Animal Capture Wildlife Control is called for a bat removal, the first thing we do is note the time of year. Why? Because bats form their nursing colonies between June and August. If they are not able to return to nurse their flightless young, their young will starve to death.

If it’s the time of year when bats are not nursing, we will conduct a thorough inspection. Our inspection will reveal every potential entry point that bats may be using to get into your home or other structures.

Once all access points have been identified, we install the exclusion devices. After we’ve confirmed all bats have exited your property, we remove the devices and then seal the entry points with duct tape to prevent bats from returning.

Why Us?

When you call Animal Capture Wildlife Control for bat control, you are calling a pest control company with over 20 years of experience in the safe and humane removal of bats, snakes, raccoons, and many other wildlife species.

We operate under a state trapping license from the California Department of Fish and Wildlife. Our extensive knowledge of bat physiology, behavior, and habits allows you to benefit from a solution that not only removes bats from your home, but prevents them from coming back.

In addition to removal and prevention, we also offer complete damage repair services. Bat guano and urine can both become serious health and structural problems if they are not removed from a property.

Because bat bodies are so small, they can squeeze into the spaces between soffit, fascia, shingles, and similar areas, which can result in the invasion of moisture, as well as other small critters into your home. We ensure that any damage caused by bats has been thoroughly assessed and repaired before considering any work to be complete.

Our excellent record of service to the communities we serve has not only been recognized by Santa Ana residents, but also by Governor Pete Wilson and former President Bill Clinton. We’ve appeared on Larry King Live, the Discovery Channel, and CNN, as well as in many newspapers and magazines.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: I’d like to try to discourage bats at my property on my own. What can I do?
A: Turn any outdoor lights off at night when bats are most active. This will prevent insects from being attracted to the lights and make it less convenient to find food when bats emerge. Another thing you can do is to remove any standing water and cover your water barrels.

Installing bat houses is a great way to enjoy all the benefits of bats without worrying about a bat infestation.

Q: Do you offer other services besides bat removal and damage repair?
A: Yes. Animal Capture Wildlife Control also provides advice on additional ways to prevent and control bats and other wildlife. After we remove bats or other animals from a property, we also provide attic restoration.

We will remove dead animals and also offer humane live trapping of skunks, snakes, and other wildlife, as well as nest clearing.

Q: Will you harm the bats?
A: Never. Animal Capture Wildlife Control only uses exclusion devices to remove bats because these devices do not place any added stress on the animals. We will never remove bats when they are nursing their young.

Q: Can’t I just leave the bats where they are?
A: You could, but this isn’t a good idea. A colony of bats can cause damage to your wiring, siding, and screens.
