Our 3 Step Bat Control Process

Inspection and Assessment

During this step, our expert Bat technician will gather information from the home/cottage owner or resident and conduct both an interior and exterior assessment of you home or cottage, this service will take up to an hour depending upon the individual needs of your bat situation.

Gathering information, the information gathered from you is beneficial in your technician being able to focus his/her attention on the key areas and situations specific to your experiences and needs.

Your interior assessment, during the interior assessment the technician will require access to your attic as well as any other area where you have experienced bat sightings, noises or have found droppings, excrement and or damage. In these key areas he/she will be investigating to determine both the level of infestation as well as ascertaining that it is a bat invader. Attention will be paid to roosting sites (Bats often inhabit attic spaces but use wall voids to move closer to warmth during the winter season) damage incurred, number of droppings, and location of droppings. This information is necessary in the strategic removal of unwanted wildlife from your home or cottage.

Your exterior assessment will be conducted After your interior assessment has been completed. Your technician will direct his/her attention to the exterior of your home or cottage. Here he/she will be focussed on finding the primary points of entry the bats are using to gain access to your home as well as any secondary or tertiary potential points of entry they could use in the instance that the primary points were sealed or compromised. Bats can gain access to your home in any opening no larger than the diameter of a dime. A four-point assessment is conducted on your home paying specific attention to all known Bat stress points of the home. i.e. soffits, fascia, roof, roof or gable vents, roof intersections, and any other problem areas depending on building type.

Upon completion of the assessment the technician will do a walk through with you discussing and pointing out any areas of concern you should be made aware of. At this point your technician will create a strategic plan using experience, training and the information gathered from the assessment to both remove the bats from your home as well as any exclusion, i.e. sealing, proofing, replacement of vent covers, chimney caps, etc. Anything needed to assure no new bats will be able to gain access to your home.

Removal and Prevention

Greenshield has always taken the most immediate and effective approach to the removal of Bats from homes and cottages. Our process is humane, safe and effective for our clients, their children and their pets.

Interior removal of Bats -Using the information gathered from our assessment as well as our 30 years of knowledge and experience, we develop a strategic plan for the placement bat cone extruders over the entry points they have been using to gain access to your home or cottage.

Bat Cones -Bats are a protected species and careful attention is given to their preservation and care in removal. The one-way cone is a safe and effective removal device that allows bats to leave and prevents their return. A smooth small plastic cone attached to the primary points of entry allows bats to safely take flight from the attic space or interior and the narrow slippery surface makes it impossible for them to latch on and climb back in.

Manual Removal -It is sometimes necessary for bats to be captured and removed from a home or cottage. In this instance a technician will use a net and wear proper protective attire to manually capture the Bat and release it back into the outdoors safely.

Exclusion -The best way to control Bats is to not allow them into your home. Using the information gained during the assessment we provide the necessary exclusion needed to seal and proof your home closing off any potential entry points and securing any secondary or tertiary potential points of entry to ensure you remain Bat free for years to come.

Restoration and Follow Up

Once your technician has completed the removal and prevention work, they will schedule any follow up appointments necessary to check  the success of the eviction via the bat cone excluders and finally remove these from your home or cottage if required.
