The 4 Major Bat Removal Services Provided By Champaign County Ohio Bat Removal
1. Remove Bats Then Seal All Bat Entrances
First, you want the removal of bats and that is what Champaign Ohio Bat Removal does best. During the bat removal process, we seal all bat entrances. Please note, we do not do bat extermination.
2. Remove Soiled Insulation
When we find bats in attics and bats in walls, we also find insulation soiled with bat feces and bat urine. Soiled insulation produces contamination and can create health issues. We suggest removal as soon as possible.
3. Sanitize Contaminated Areas
Once we finish removing bats and contaminated insulation, the sanitizing process begins with atomizing foggers using oxidizers, sanitizers, and enzyme-based cleaners that breaks down stains and odors. We then vent the area thoroughly and prepare the site for the new insulation to be installed.
4. Replace Insulation
Once we finish steps 1,2, and 3, insulation replacement is next. Our Barnes Wildlife Control Insulation experts can air seal your attic and install new fiberglass insulation to current building codes levels.

How Do We Remove Bats From Your Home, Buildings Or Business?
So, you know you have bats in your home, buildings or business. Finding a colony of bats in part of a space you occupy causes concern in most people, if not fear. So, how are you going to deal with your bats in your building problem? First, take a deep breath, try to relax, and give us a call at (937) 340-1867.
But in the meantime, let’s give you a simplified five-step introduction on how we remove bats, or what in the business we call “bat exclusion.”
1) The Assessment Of The Building
First, we have to access where bats are entering and exiting the structure. Given our extensive experience, we can find all the apparent bat exits and bat entrances through a thorough whole house inspection. Often times you can observe the bats comings and goings during the evening hours in what is a referred to as a bat watch. Bats leave their roosting areas in the evening hours, and this can enable a better insight into some areas of interest, but never rely on this alone as bats often can and will use several small entry areas on the building.
2) Repairing All Bat Entrances and Exits But One
We guarantee we can discover all the bats’ entrances and exits. Some people think we close all the gaps, then locate the bats, trap them one by one, then remove them from the building. We do not remove bats from a building that way.
Next, we start the exclusion process by sealing all gaps in the building but several of the main bat entry and exit locations. Now we need a way to get the bats out but not let them back in. And, a perfect solution for bat removal exists, The Bat Valve.
3) Using The Bat Valve
The Bat Valve is a one-way door device designed so bats can escape through it but cannot return. The Bat Valve tool has three different design options. Each design serves a particular situation based on where a bat exits a building. Bats leave their roosting areas via gable vents, soffit returns, roof-lines, ridge vents, brick openings, frieze boards, dormers, and other construction gaps in a building. There is a Bat Valve design that can fit over any one of these areas of a building. This device works like a charm and allows bats to get out humanely never to return.
The Bat Valve, manufactured by Viking Product Supply, comes in 3 different models. The SG3 works on soffit returns and gable vents, the FLEX2, on corner gaps and bathroom exhaust vents, and the FR4 on ridge vents and frieze board gaps.
4) Leaving The Bat Valve In Place
The Bat Valve stays in place for some time. In perfect conditions, the bats leave in a couple of nights. Of course, we may leave the Bat Valve on longer but generally no longer than a few weeks.
5) Removing The Bat Valve and Repairing The Last Gap
Now that we have excluded the bats, we remove the bat valves and seal the gaps permanetely, then the attic restoration portion of the project can begin.
Great, you’ve had a successful bat exclusion! But, now you must determine what type of bat damage occured in the areas the bats inhabited.
In the above video, we show you the process we use when doing a full attic restoration after we remove all bats and the bat entrances sealed.
Now That The Bats Are Gone You May Not Be Out Of The Woods Yet
So, Champaign County, Ohio Bat Control, successfully removed all the bats from your buildings. Of course, you’re overjoyed. But, you may still have problems: contaminated bat feces, insulation, and other materials.
Most people know about bats potentially carrying rabies. But, few people know that air contaminated with spores from histoplasma capsulatum fungus can cause flu-like symptoms and other serious issues. This fungus grows in bat feces. The area where your bats inhabited contains bat feces and bat urine. Therefore, you must have these areas sanitized.
The first step in the sanitation process removes feces and contaminated materials such as insulation and drywall. After that step, we treat the bacteria, fungus, and odors using several sanitization methods. The level and type of contaminations determine what way we use.
Foggers, containing appropriate chemicals to sanitize hard to reach areas. We counteract odors with the use of oxidizing and enzymatic deodorizers. The moldicides and disinfectants we use dry quickly, and you’ll soon have an attic safe for any member of the family.
New Insulation May Be Needed
If we remove insulation contaminated by bat guano and bat urine, it would need replacement. We replace insulation, and we will discuss your options with you. Rest assured, we use superior quality insulation with high insulation capability.
Also, if we discover you have old compacted insulation, you may want that replaced since it becomes less efficient. We’ll gladly do that as well.
These bat droppings, or bat guano, piled up in this Ohio attic filled with bats. Of course, we needed to remove bats before we could tackle this job. Removing bats demands years of real-world bat fact filled experiences. Call Barnes Wildlife Control’s Champaign County Ohio Bat Removal team today at (937) 340-1867.
