How We Handle Bat Problems: Humane Bat Removal Service Using One-Way Doors
My name is Jacob Barnes and I’m the owner here at Barnes Wildlife Control, LLC. Our top priority is offering satisfactory services to our customers. Bat removal is a very common service we offer to homeowners and commercial property owners alike. A Bat removal service must be done humanely since all species of bats are protected under federal law. Due to the laws in place, bat problems must be handled very differently from your typical wildlife control service.
Instead of trapping, we offer a highly effective service known as “live bat exclusion.” This entails sealing the infested structure completely and hanging one-way doors over the bats’ primary entry points. This device will allow the bats to pass through it unharmed, but when they return to their entry point they cannot get back inside, hence “one-way door.” Having the rest of the building sealed-up properly is critical to complete the process successfully. Our bat removal service will do all that and more.

Notable Points Of Our Bat Removal Service Include:3>
- All bat exclusion work is done from the outside. Many people assume we are going to seal-up from inside, but that is not the case.
- No bats will be harmed during this process. However, if you had a bat in your home, that bat may be euthanized and tested for rabies.
- During exclusion, we seal all gaps, EXCEPT the gaps where bats are entering. This is where our one-way doors will be placed.
Hazards Of Bat Infestation
Bats are a vital part of our local ecosystem. However, bats shouldn’t live in your attic. In fact, there are good reasons why. Bats pass on a particular disease to people or pets in the home. Your biggest concern should be disease transmission. This disease is called Zoonotic diseases.
Bats are vectors for rabies. Rabies can be transmitted when an infected bat bites or transmits saliva to the host. Young children and pets are the most susceptible and if an encounter occurs and marks are left on their skin, seek medical attention and try to trap the bat for testing.
Bat droppings can accumulate in the right environment. As a matter of fact, dangerous fungus, called Histoplasmosis, can grow in such environments. If the fungi are inhaled a hazardous respiratory disease may effect your eyes. If proper safety PPE isn’t used when cleaning the bat fecal matter, you may be exposed to the Histo fungal spores.

Where Are Bats Typically Found?
Bats generally like to enter structures from the highest openings, but this is not always the case. While removing bats from a Miami Valley home, we found a major bat entry point between the brick of the house and the concrete foundation where a crack had formed. The bats were then living in the basement walls and were found when the homeowner opened up a wall to remodel. Barnes Wildlife learns from experiences like this and uses this first-hand knowledge to provide its customers with exceptional service in the Dayton, Ohio, area.
Inspection & Assessment
Complete home bat inspection means just that, from the top of your roof to the bottom of your foundation; Barnes Wildlife Control will inspect and find how bats are entering your home.
We always look in your attic during the inspection, where we often find bat poop(guano) that looks like tiny, elongated black pellets. You don’t want bat feces inside your home! Often we find masses of guano strewn inside the walls of your attic or insulation. And bat guano piles up fast. Also, bat guano turns into a dust pile as it dries out which can permeate the air in the attic. This dust is unhealthy to breathe! BWC will then discuss the details of the bat removal service and how to repair your home for total bat control.

Legal: The inhumane killing or trapping of bats is illegal in Ohio and we take extra precautions and educate our customers so they understand how our bat removal and bat control process meets these requirements.

Bat Facts And Bat Information
Many species of bats are found throughout the Midwest, but two are very common in the Dayton Ohio area – the Big Brown Bat and the Little Brown Bat. They have slightly different life-cycles and characteristics and as such are handled differently by wildlife removal experts. The following are some more bat facts for homeowners:
Things you may want to know about the Bats living in your home
- Bats are vital for a healthy ecosystem, and if you have ever lived in the Miami Valley you know they have plenty of mosquitoes to eat. Bats consume a countless number of insects every night they fly out of your gable vent to feed
- If a bat flies out of your chimney it will not intentionally fly in your hair and they can’t suck your blood, but they can bite so call a professional for help
- Bats are vectors of the rabies virus and is most commonly transmitted through bat saliva
- Given the size of a bat it can squeeze through a tiny hole the size of a dime or ~ 3/8 of an inch so when BWC exterminates the bats out of your attic, the entire house needs to be inspected and sealed
- Bat average lifespan is between 10-15 years and reports have shown they can live as long as 30 years old.
- A bat has a ferocious appetite and produce several times their body weight in bat guano and bat droppings each month. If bats aren’t removed from your home, this poop can build up and become hazardous to your health
- Colonies of bats range in sizes but on average most homes have between 10-30 bats living in the attic and the maternal colonies double the size every year
- Bats start to hibernate when the outside air temperature drops below 35-45 degrees F and when average daily highs linger around 50 degrees F
