Wildout Animal & Pest Removal Reminds That Florida Bat Removal Season Opens August 15th

Wildout Animal & Pest Removal announced that the seasonal moratorium on bat removal in the State of Florida has finally ended. As of August 15th, they and other animal removal service providers around the state can now legally begin removing bats from homes and businesses. This will be welcome news for those in the state that have suffered at the expense of having to share their home with these often-destructive creatures.

The company spokesperson, Brent Shiver, says, “Bats are protected in Florida from April 15th until August 14th every year. Even if they have infested an attic, they cannot be removed during this time because this is when they reproduce. We realize this can be very frustrating for people that have to live with the problems that bat infestation causes. The good news is that the blackout was lifted August 15 and now we can remove bats from homes and businesses across Florida. So now is the time to act if you have been having problems with bats at your home or commercial property. We here at Wildout Animal & Pest Removal are very skilled when it comes to doing effective bat removal.”

Shiver went on to say that many people do not understand why bats cannot be removed from premises from April 15th to August 15th each year. The company has even posted a blog on its website that covers this very topic. That article can be seen here at https://www.wildremoval.com/blog/why-are-bats-protected-in-the-state-of-florida/. He says that it’s much more complicated than just the fact that the animals breed at this time of year. Although bats are seen by many somewhat worthless and scary animals, they actually play a very important role in the ecosystem. The company spokesperson says that while many people see bats as disease carriers, which is somewhat true, they also help prevent the spread of disease because of the large number of flies, mosquitoes, and other insects that consume. He says that their voracious appetite for bugs also helps cut down on crop losses due to a reduced insect population.

For all of the good that bats do, Shiver also acknowledged that they are not something that someone wants living in their home or business for very long. One of the biggest problems with bats is their droppings or what professional animal removal experts refer to as ‘guano’. He says that not only can bat droppings start to smell awful after they build up but they are also the source of many of the diseases that are associated with bats. Guano can also be highly corrosive to just about any surface that it gets on.

The company spokesperson also pointed out that bat removal by home and business owners is something that they probably do not want to attempt themselves. That’s because of the diseases that they carry and their somewhat aggressive nature when confronted. He says it also takes special techniques and protective equipment to efficiently remove bats from a property. He says that when they are called to do bat removal the first step they will take is to inspect the property to find out where the bats are residing in it and how they entered into that home or business. Shiver emphasized that they do not poison or trap bats. He says that they will seal up as many entry points as possible and then put a one-way door on the remaining entry points. Once the bats all fly out to eat, they cannot get back into a home or business through these specially made devices. The company spokesperson added that this is a very effective and long-lasting method of bat removal.
