|Bats live on every continent in the world except Antarctica. There are 925 different species of bats which make up almost one
quarter of the entire 4,625 known species of mammals. In Florida, 19 different species of bats inhabit homes, buildings,
man-made structures, trees, tree hollows and caves.
Large colonies may find refuge under roof tiles, in attics, chimneys or any other small gaps that may give them access to a void
in the roof or structure. A hole as small as 1/4 of an inch wide is all that is needed for a bat to squeeze through and find it's way
into your home or business. Our bat specialist are experienced in recognizing these gaps and are throughly trained to ensure
the best solution is initiated when handling these problems. Bats are extremely territorial and unless the proper steps are taken
to exclude them correctly, the problem will persist. Bat exclusions should only be done by licensed, qualified professionals.

|Bat Removal Service
Inspection #1: An inspection of the entire roof or structure is performed to determine areas most susceptible to bat
infestation or colonization.
Bat Proofing: Pre-seal all areas not found to be occupied by bats which may become future entry points. These areas will
be sealed prior to the bat exclusion. Materials used will be determined by the type of roof and/or areas needed to be sealed.
All areas determined suitable for bat entry and have no existing roosting bats, shall be sealed to prevent recolonization to
Bat Removal: An exclusion ( removal of bats using a netting mechanism ) is then performed on the areas infested with
bats, once the pre-seal is completed. Polycarbonate fine mesh is then placed over the entry/exit points which will allow all bats
to exit safely, but will be denied re-entry into the roost. The exclusion mesh is secured to the areas by materials suitable for
roofs and building structures and will not harm the roof or structure. Bats will emerge safely without being harmed or disturbed,
unlike tubes and wooden boxes or other inhumane devices. The exclusion mesh remains in place for 5 - 7 days to ensure that
all the bats have relocated safely. Exclusion time may vary depending on climate and/or weather conditions.
Inspection #2: A second inspection is made to determine a successful and complete exclusion of bats. The structure or
site is then re-evaluated for entry / exit points to avoid recolonization of bats to another area of the roof or structure.
Final Seal: Once the roost is deemed cleared of bats, then the exclusion mesh is removed and the entry / exit point is
sealed with material determined by the type of roof and/or area needed to be sealed.
Warranty: All our work is backed by a two year warranty. Warranty covers only work completed by American Bat Removal.
Warranty covers all labor and materials cost. Upon the anniversary of the expiration of the initial warranty, additional coverage
may be renewed on an annual basis. An inspection of the structure or site must be approved by an American Bat Removal
technician prior to granting an extended warranty. Warranty goes into effect only after the final balance has been paid in full.
*Any damage caused to final seal by wild animals such as rodents, squirrels, raccoons, or birds, storms, fire, vandalism or acts
of God and/or any alterations made to roof or structure by contractors such as repairs, pressure washing etc... which result
in the recolonization of bats will void the warranty.
*The completion of the final seal will prevent bats from recolonizing in the roof or structure areas which were treated, however,
bats may still fly around the areas in search of insects and/or access to the roost. American Bat Removal cannot prevent bats
from flying around.

On February 2, 2010, I was contacted by channel 12 news reporter John Bachman. He was interested in meeting with me to
obtain information for a news report he had been assigned to cover on bats that had infested a house in the St. James area in
Port Saint Lucie, Florida.
John Bachman, of CBS Channel 12 News reported; "To see the bats fly is a wonder of nature that you can almost set your watch
by." He watched as the Brazilian free tailed bats poured out from underneath the barrel tiles of the vacant home as the sun began
"They just start swarming out around dusk," said neighbor Michelle Botterbusch. Only this isn't nature it's right next door to
Michelle Botterbusch's house and she's had enough. "They're just nasty, and knowing that they're there is frightening. The
smell. Thinking of rabies." she said.
"The smell, well it's about the same as stale cat urine. The bats have also decorated the walls of their adopted home with feces,
and while the risk of rabies is quite small, neighbor Barry Woods, says "something needs to be done." Seeing them come down
and swooping. The sky filled with bats, it's kind of a scary situation when you first look at it." Woods, said.
The bats are fairly common here and are protected because they help control the mosquito population. They slip under the
Spanish tiles that adorn so many south Florida roofs and make themselves at home and it seems the bats are the only one's living
at the house. Neighbors say the home is in foreclosure. Even if there were someone to pay for the removal, bat expert David
Diaz, of American Bat Removal said, they'd just come back unless the house was completely bat proofed. "They are going to stay
as close as possible," Diaz said. And that means that all the nearby homeowners may also have to bat proof their roofs, which not
everyone can afford to do. " It's tedious work is what it is," Diaz said.
"So with few options, neighbors sit every night and watch the bats take off and wish they would fly far - far away." John Bachman,
