Bats Play an Important Role in the Ecosystem
Although many equate bats with vampires, these flying mammals offer several key benefits to our ecosystem. They feed on insects, which offers benefits for human health and protecting crops from destruction by insects. The many benefits offered by these creatures is the reason killing bats is prohibited by law.
Our ecosystem depends on bats because they:
- Eat up to 1,200 mosquitoes per hour which helps reduce mosquito borne illness.
- Eat insects that feed on crops which prevents crop damage.
- Pollinate avocadoes, bananas, dates, peaches, cashews, cloves, and other crops.
- Help regenerate forests through reseeding.
Without bats, insect populations would become out of control putting our health at risk and destroying crops. Unfortunately, the destruction of their natural habitat has pushed bats closer to where people live, including in our attics, sheds, and even occasionally getting inside the house. We offer effective Boston and area bat control to help safely remove the creatures without causing them any harm.
Humane Bat Removal
While bats are beneficial to the environment, they pose certain health concerns when they roost in residential or commercial properties. The creatures may carry rabies and the bacteria in their droppings can produce potentially serious health concerns.
At Pestex, we offer safe and effective bat control in Boston and surrounding areas. The first step is to locate the place where bats are roosting on your property and how they are getting inside. After we have identified the problem, and during allowed times of the year, we install one-way pvc tunnels to get the bats to leave and stop them from coming back. Fortunately, bats tend to leave their roosting area in search of food when the sun goes down.
Preventing Future Bat Problems
Bats can enter your home through small openings in the roof, vents, chimneys, and other spaces. They can get inside a hole that is as small as a quarter of an inch. To keep bats away, it is important to discover and correct any entry points. Our highly qualified pest control and wildlife exclusion experts will start with an inspection of your home to locate all possible points of entry.
We offer a wide variety of exclusion and restoration services to keep bats and other pests out of your home. Our services include custom chimney caps, masonry, stonework, and attic, basement, and crawlspace abatement. The specific services that may be needed depend on the access points that bats are using to get inside your home. We offer a complimentary inspection and free estimates for bat control and exclusion services.
