Here are a few of the creatures you might find in your home:
The Big Brown Bat lives up to the name and can be intimidating when unexpected. With a wingspan of up to 13 inches, it can be an intimidating sight! It’s distinguishable from other bats mostly by its size, but also from the glossy dark brown fur on its upper side, contrasting with the dark gray fur underneath. Although its wingspan is large, the bat is otherwise quite a small creature – just five inches long and weighing only up to 1 ½ ounces.
We’re frequently called upon to remove bats from homes and commercial buildings, as the big brown bat loves to roost in these structures. Our professionals will study where bats are getting in and seal up the holes that provide entry – unless there are already baby bats inside.
Like bats, squirrels regard manmade structures as warm and inviting areas where they can store food and raise their young – provided they can find a way in. Unfortunately, older homes can be full of squirrel-sized nooks – uncapped chimneys, damaged vents, and convenient tree limbs are common entryways for these wily rodents. Squirrels have even been known to gnaw directly through walls to get inside a house.
Again, as with bats, the process of driving squirrels from a house involves finding where the squirrels have entered a building, sealing up the entryways and exits, and preventing the rodents from re-entering.
