South Bend Bat Removal And Exclusion

bats in the attic

Bats living in the attic of a house are very temperature sensitive and when the attic of a house becomes really hot, or really cold bats will push down the walls. Many times the bats will find a little opening inside the house to take flight out of. Most customers that call with a bat flying in the house will assume that the bat came down the chimney and then into the house. In all the years our licensed bat removal specialists have removed bats in the house, very rarely do we find that the bats in the house actually entered from the chimney.

There are several occasions when we have found that once a bat is in the house it will gravitate to the fireplace because it will feel a draft that is pulling air from the house and up the chimney. Almost always bats that are in the house have entered through the attic. We receive calls from homeowners that have only ever had one bat in the house, and others that have had bats in the house for many years. If you have bats in your house don’t let the problem go on for years! There are many health issues related to having bats in the house. One is histoplasmosis. This is a fungus that can get into your lungs from the bat guano in the attic or walls.

If bat guano is found in the house, whether in the attic or in the walls of the house, and there are significant amounts it should be removed. Most homeowners insurance companies will cover the removal of bat guano in the house. We have been in attics of houses that have hundreds of bats that have built large bat colonies in the house. Other times we are called by customers that have only one bat hanging on the wall in the house. They will tell us this is the only bat they have had in the house in all the years they have lived in the house. After a bat entry inspection and bat colony evaluation, no other signs of bats in the house are found. Read more here on bat exclusion services and guano cleanup in South Bend.

South Bend Mice Control And Extermination

mice in homes

Mouse removal programs: Most homes and businesses have had some type of mouse problem at one time or another. No one wants a mouse in their home or business. Mice enter in through very very small construction gaps, openings in foundations, behind siding, and on the roof line in many areas as small as the eraser on a pencil. We can’t guarantee that a customer never has another mouse in their home due to many factors. Homes settle, homes age, and homes always will have maintenance issues. There are many ways people get rid of mice. This is the American Animal Control way.

We offer mouse bait stations outdoors. Our focus is primarily mouse entry prevention. We must locate and close up all possible entrance points to stop mice from entering. Once mice are in the home or business the best way to remove them is traps. Trapping mice is very time consuming and labor intensive. This type of mouse removal program ensures our customers they usually will not experience the smell of dead mice rotting in the walls, floors, attics or crawlspaces. The problem with poisons indoors is you never know where the dead mouse will end up or how long it will smell once it has died?

Our mouse removal professionals locate and seal up all possible mouse entrance points and optionally provide our customers with an ongoing mouse trapping monthly service that assures our customers if and when a mouse or mice show up they will be trapped and removed in a timely fashion. Read more here on mice control services and rodent extermination in South Bend.

South Bend Raccoon Removal And Damage Repairs

Our team offers the most innovative raccoon removal techniques in the industry. Our techs have over 60 years of combined experience in raccoon removal, raccoon control, and raccoon trapping.

Raccoons primarily move in low light condition. At night while you’re sleeping the masked bandits begin to seek out what kind of havoc they can do. Mostly looking for food, raccoons will eat almost anything including; worms, grubs, insects, fish, birds, frogs, eggs, mice, moles, rats, and even rabbits. We receive many calls a year from people with raccoons in their dumpster and or raccoons in garbage cans. We also receive calls from people who have bird feeders in their yards. Although we all enjoy watching birds, bird feeders become magnets for every raccoon in the neighborhood.

Most raccoons like to build their dens up high in holes of trees. But more and more, raccoons are making their dens in attics of homes, chimneys, and outbuildings. They tear holes in roofs, rip open soffits, and cause hundreds and thousands of dollars in damage to homes every year.

Although raccoons appear to be “playful” or “cute”, when cornered they are very aggressive. Raccoons are very strong, fast, and have razor sharp teeth and jaw strength that can crush bones. Raccoons can carry rabies. Raccoons also can have many other diseases as well as raccoon roundworm. Read more here on raccoon removal and damage repair services in South Bend.

Occasional skunk sightings around neighborhoods are not uncommon and should be cause for alarm for wondering dogs or homeowners. When a skunk takes up residence around homes, harassment is usually not a smart or effective way in convincing them to move elsewhere. Packing a burrow with leaves or using mild repellents such as rags soaked in ammonia will not do the job.

Occasional sightings around neighborhoods in daylight hours occur. These skunks may be sick or have some type of disease. When a skunk takes up residence around homes (usually under decks, barns, sheds, or in crawl spaces), you should call us for professional skunk removal. You may try and eliminate skunks found around your house by removing access to crawl spaces, sheds, decks. Also reducing their food supply by storing pet food and bird seed in sealed containers.
