The little brown bat is the most common bat in and around central Iowa.  Contrary to popular opinion, majority of bats do not carry rabies.

Droppings below their entries is the most common sign you have bats

Droppings below entry points is proof of a bat problem. Bat Droppings resemble tiny tootsie rolls.  When squished they fall apart to insect pieces. 

Bats often use vents for entries

We install screens over entry points and a one-way bat device (this allows bats out but not back in).

Structures have many entry points for bats

Bats find many openings. They only need a gap an inch wide and 1/2" thick to gain entry into a structure. The Bat Professionals at Midwest Bird Control are experts at identifying these areas and sealing them appropriately.  

We're often asked: "How much does bat removal cost?"  It depends on many factors such as house size, gaps, etc.
