Are There Bats Roosting Behind My Shutters?

Bats roosting behind your window or attic shutters are common in Franklin. Especially bats nest behind shutters on stone-faced houses. We specialize in all forms of bat removal and bird control, especially birds living in shutters.

First, we must determine what species of the bat is. Our bat control experts in Williamson County will be able to identify all of the common bats in Franklin. We do this to make sure that the species in question is not an endangered or protected species.

Once the bats are behind the shutters on your house they will begin nesting. This can cause multiple problems. They can be very unsightly with bat guano running down your house and windows. Bat guano is also known to hold over 100 diseases and pathogens. The bats behind the shutters can cause a health risk. Also, some species of bats become protective of their nest and will swoop down to try to bite and scare you away.

Bat Removal Process

Upon inspection, our bird removal pest control specialist will determine the species of bird and its phase of roosting. This will determine our next steps. Being a bat removal pest control company we require all of our technicians to be trained and certified for bat removal in Franklin. If we determine that it is not a protected species such as the Gray bat, and Tennessee Indiana Bat. Then we can begin the exclusion process.

First, we will scare away the bats by removing the shutters. Do not worry we can re-install them. Then we will clean up and disinfect the area of the bat guano and shutter.

After the bats are removed and the area sanitized it will be time to keep the bats out. This is done differently depending on the species of bat and area in the country. In Tennessee, our bird control and removal specialist will normally exclude the bats by installing a bat-proof material in front of the shutters to prevent birds from getting in. We may also install visual bat deterrents to deter bats from the area.
