The Little Brown and Big Brown bats roost usually in homes and structures
where they can enter through areas as small as a quarter of an inch. These
small little animals live in colonies, sometimes small, five to ten bats, and
sometimes large, ranging from several hundred to several thousands. A
bat proofing process is needed to resolve any situation where a building,
home, or structure is infested with this type of animal. Most homeowners
make the mistake of sealing entrances and openings to prevent bats from
gaining access into their structure, but in a many cases, seal areas that the
bats are using to go
out of the structure. When this is done it will force the
entire colony of bats down through the living quarters of the house, which
can be a very messy and dangerous situation.

Bat exclusions are needed to remove bats from buildings and structures.  
All of the cracks, holes, crevices, anything the size of a quarter inch or
more are sealed, and then bats are funneled through one-way doors or
tubes out of the structure. After this process is complete (a week to ten
days) the whole colony has been removed.
What to do about them and how to get rid of bats in Iowa

The exclusion process starts with an inspection and an estimate for
complete exclusion.  The price of the inspection is waived if the customer
completes the exclusion process with Complete Wildlife Control.  The
value of the exclusion process varies depending on size of the structure,
safety concerns, amount of ladder time involved, height and distance
traveled to get to the location.

It is impossible to give an accurate estimate without looking at the
structure in question.  

Bat exclusion is usually warranted for two or three years and that can be
extended with annual inspections.

Bat dropping and guano cleanup

After the bats have been excluded from the property.  A clean up may be
necessary.  Bat droppings may contain diseases and the odor smells of
dirty diapers.  Complete Wildlife Control has a 15hp vacuum that is
employed in removing bat guano.  The vac stays out side along with the
dust and waste and only a hose is inside the attic doing the work.  After
bat poop removal, a disinfectant is applied that kills bacteria and reduces
odors on contact.

About our warranty

We have found that a three year warranty is the maximum that can be
given without reinspecting the property annually.  In the Midwest climate
where temperatures can go from -20 to 110 degrees in one year,
building gaps will open up over time and provide a new means for bats
to enter.  We have been in the bat business for over a decade and
honor our warranty, ask for references.
We are a local company from central Iowa
