Fox Pest Control’s Rhode Island Bat Removal Service

When you hear the word “bat,” do you picture a vampire bat laying wait in the dark corners of your house to attack? If you do, you may be glad to hear that’s not what bats do at all. In reality, they’re only looking for protection and a place to sleep. Though bats have good intentions, your house shouldn’t be their safe haven. At Fox Pest Control, we want to carefully remove your nocturnal guests so you and your family feel safe and secure. 

Signs of a Bat Problem

You might already know for sure that you have a bat problem. But here are a couple of the most common signs of a bat problem in Rhode Island. 

Droppings

Bat droppings will be gathered in attic spaces, often along with urine.

Stench

Bat guano and urine together may smell something like ammonia after a while.

Scratching and Scurrying

During the night or day, bats may move around in their hiding places and cause small noises.

What You Need to Know About Bats

  • There are 1200 species of bats in the world.
  • Most of them feed on fruit, nectar, pollen or insects.
  • Only three of these 1200 species drink blood; and even then, they target livestock, not humans. 
  • 70 percent of all rabies cases in the United States are the result of interactions between humans and bats. Based on this high percentage, it’s important to be wary when bats settle on your property. 
  • These nocturnal mammals can also spread a dangerous disease called histoplasmosis through their feces, which is often referred to as guano. 
  • In some states, there are restrictions on when licensed wildlife technicians can remove live bats or provide final exclusion services to keep them out of homes for good. These state-mandated laws serve to protect the bats birthing and hibernation patterns.
  • The professionals at Fox Pest Control take bats seriously and will do everything possible to help you in a timely manner. 

Helpful Bat Prevention Tips: 

  • Shine a bright light 24 hours a day on areas where bats roost.
  • Purchase a bat box so that bats have an alternative place to roost.
  • Place aluminum foil around the gables and other spaces where bats might enter.

Rhode Island Pest Control Reviews

5 Stars

We have never needed pest control in the past and we randomly called Fox. We couldn't be happier with Phil the technician that came to service our home. Phil was extremely knowledgeable, thorough and patient. He answered all of our questions and put us at ease. If all of Fox's technicians are like Phil then you'll be in good hands.

We've been using FOX for the last few years for seasonal pest maintenance. Every time we see some sort of pest activity outside our regular seasonal treatment, they come quick and take care of it. The workers are always kind and courteous and answer my questions and concerns. We've recommended this company to a number of family and friends who have also used FOX for treatment.
