Exclusion is the best way for eliminating and preventing bats from residing in structures in Ohio. CRW bat exclusion experts avoid trapping young pups and prevent bats from relocating in the structure through other openings. The CRW “bat crews” repair or modify attics, soffits and roofs when necessary. Although the work can be tedious and occasionally painful, Alex and Jason locate all active and potential openings available to bats. The CRW “bat men” climb ladders a lot and also use machine lifts when necessary. They identify active holes by guano, rub marks and smells. These two courageous CRW bat management experts look for gaps or openings around chimneys, fireplaces, plumbing, piping, exhaust vents, attic doors or hatches, windowsills, pet doors, air conditioners, power ventilators, ducts and louver fans.

CWR bat control experts advise our clients that there is a good chance there are more bats in the walls or attic, if one is seen inside the house. Bats rarely fly in through open doors and their presence on a wall or ceiling is probably an indication of a minor or major bat infestation.

A thorough inspection is recommended to find out if there are more bats in the house.

Humans and bats can live in peace with each other. Bats are flying mammals that are found in nearly every habitat throughout Ohio.

Ohioans should not fear bats simply because they enter attic spaces, construction gaps and wall voids looking for shelter. Most bites occur happen when people try to grab a bat with their bare hands.

The Ohio Division of Natural Resources classifies bats as a nuisance species. Some of the most common species of bats that the Cottom’s Wildlife Removal company gets out of attics and homes in Ohio are colonial bats such as Big brown bats, Little brown bats and Mexican free-tailed bats.

According to Barbara French, a biologist with Bat Conservation International, many people have a few bats in their attic and never know it.

But a large colony of bats can become a noise or odor nuisance. Bats should not be allowed to enter interior living quarters.

Found An Orphaned Or Injured Baby Wild Animal? [Information From The Humane Society Of The United States]

How to tell if baby animals are orphaned, injured or perfectly fine—and what to do if they need your help

It’s common to see baby wild animals outside during spring, as a new generation makes its way into the world. Baby wild animals might seem like they need our help, but unless the animal is truly orphaned or injured, there is no need to rescue them. These tips can help you decide whether to take action.

Signs that a wild animal needs your help

  • The animal is brought to you by a cat or dog.
  • There’s evidence of bleeding.
  • The animal has an apparent or obvious broken limb.
  • A bird is featherless or nearly featherless and on the ground.
  • The animal is shivering.
  • There’s a dead parent nearby.
  • The animal is crying and wandering all day long.

If you see any of these signs, find help for the animal. If necessary, safely capture and transport them to the appropriate place for treatment. Read more here.
