Bat Displacement & Intrusion Prevention Services
Providing a comprehensive bat management program in Kennesaw, Dixie Exterminators specialize in both the displacement of bats and the installation of measures to deter their return. Our wildlife experts are proficient in using exclusion methods, pinpointing and sealing off typical bat entry points such as roof gaps and various types of vents. Further, we deal with the clean-up and replacement of insulation that bats often soil with their droppings, also known as guano.
Getting to Know Bats
Bats, part of the order Chiroptera, are the only mammals capable of maintaining genuine, long-term flight due to their wing-like webbed forelimbs. With about 1,100 recognized bat species globally, they make up nearly 20% of all cataloged mammal species. Predominantly insectivorous, around 70% of bats feed on insects. The rest mostly comprise fruit eaters, or frugivores, with a small proportion feeding on animals other than insects. Bats, present in numerous parts of the world, play crucial roles in ecosystems, such as flower pollination and seed dispersion for fruit. Many tropical plant species rely solely on bats for their seed dispersal.
