Did you know bats are the #1 carrier of rabies? These tiny flying mammals are nocturnal, so if you are hearing scratching in your attic at night, it could be a bat. Bats also get into Kaw Valley chimneys and basements, posing a serious health risk and potential structural damage. If you live in the Kaw Valley area, give Critter Control of Kaw Valley a call for help with full-service bat removal! We can also help with bat exclusion by bat-proofing your home.

Bat Removal Near You

Big Brown Bat in Kaw ValleyThe biggest issue posed by bats, aside from their tendency to carry rabies, is the volume of droppings and the diseases associated with bat guano. Bat guano is one of the more dangerous wildlife droppings, as it can grow a mold that breeds histoplasmosis spores. As bat poop gathers, pets and humans alike are at risk of this disease and more. Some common Kaw Valley bat problems include:

  • Bat feces (odors, stains, and illnesses like histoplasmosis)
  • Bat waste stains on the wall or ground
  • Home insulation contamination 
  • Harmful diseases and bacteria stemming from bat guano

Common Bat Damage

Bats in Kansas take advantage of the state's mild springs, limestone grounds & cave patterns— these are all perfect environments for big brown bats and some of their relatives. Here in the Kaw Valley region, our river convergence also provides a huge food source of mosquitoes, moths, and other bugs on which big brown bats thrive. Learn more about why bats in the house are a health risk and a big problem in the video below:

How to Get Rid of Bats

Bats should never be picked up or otherwise handled unless you are a professional (if not, give us a call!). In order to keep bats from roosting in attics, proper precautions should be taken to cover or seal all vents, holes, chimneys, windows, and gaps leading indoors. 

Once bats do get inside your home, they can cause big problems, as these winged critters can repopulate pretty quickly. Our professional bat removal technicians have the knowledge and experience in bat behavior and effective bat exclusion. At Critter Control of Kaw Valley, our bat control services include:
