Barnes Wildlife Control completed a bat exclusion at a church in Dayton, Ohio. Bats can be a huge problem, they do damage to buildings, produce guano (feces), which is nasty, not to mention toxic! Bats are also one of the main carriers of rabies! At the church, bats were roosting inside of the attic, the chimneys, and other areas of the church and roof. The damage included entry holes, and gaps in the structure. Did you know that a bat can fit through a gap the size of a quarter inch? That would be similar a bat squeezing through a slot with a width the size of a thimble! What did Barnes Wildlife Control do? Using a lift and extension ladders to reach the roof, the team sealed off gaps in the roof and other areas of the structure and screened off gable vents, so bats can no longer enter the building. The team also made repairs to other damage on the structure done by bats, and then installed Bat Valves. What is a bat valve? A bat valve is a one way entry valve, so that any bat(s) may exit the building, but none may enter. The job was once again completed efficiently and humanely. Bats in any apartment, house, or other building or structure pose a huge problem. Got bats? Call Barnes Wildlife Control at 937-340-1867!
