First, call Mike (320)224-2117.
Second, we’ll schedule an inspection.
During this inspection Crow River Bat Control will determine what species of bats the house has, what type of roost they have, what physical building flaws we need to correct, and when we can schedule the work. From this inspection we can determine what the costs will be to bat proof the building.
Exclusion can be very time consuming on large buildings or on those having a great many openings, but most houses that are in good condition can be bat proofed for a lot less.
The cost of permanent bat exclusion varies from structure to structure. It’s best to fill out a contact form, give Mike a call, or to send over an email giving us a little more information on your situation.
No! Bats are good to have around. While our methods of exclusion are permanent, they do not harm the bats in any way.
Yes! We service just about any building that has a bat problem.
Bat droppings, or guano, can be very dangerous to your health and may cause a condition called histoplasmosis. On top of this, like all mammals, bats may harbor fleas, mites, or ticks. Most of these bat parasites are highly host specific.
We service a 150 mile radius of Cokato, Minnesota (60 miles west of the Twin Cities). If you are not in our service area, give us a call regardless! There is a very good chance we will be able to give you a hand in some way/shape/form.
Bats can carry rabies, however, tests have shown that 1/2 of 1% of all bats brought in for testing tested positive for rabies. That said, never pick up a dead bat with your bare hands.
