If you have bats in a building, learn how to safely exclude them, here. The idea behind the exclusion method is to create a one-way door the bats use to exit at sunset. However, they can’t get back in when they return before sunrise to roost. If you had bats in your home over the summer, September and October are the best months for conducting a bat exclusion according to the Ohio Division of Wildlife.
Wildlife Damage Repair Services For Ohio Homeowners
Unfortunately, sometimes the removal of the animal does not remove the danger left by its presence in your home. After wildlife, critters, animals, mice, rats, squirrels, raccoons, birds or bats have been removed, damage repair services are provided for Cleveland, Columbus, Cincinnati and Akron homeowners.
Feces and excrement, ringworm and other parasites create an ongoing health problem for your family and pets. Torn attic insulation can cost a fortune in energy costs and holes and cracks in your roof, eves, soffits, vents and chimney can leave your building vulnerable to more wildlife infestations. In addition, your deck, shed, and porches are often areas where wildlife hides. We will remove them and repair any damage to those places as well.

About Insurance Coverage for Animal Removal and Building Repair
Homeowners insurance will frequently cover the cost of attic cleanup and decontamination. However, some insurance companies do not want to pay for damage done to your home by wildlife and will employ tricks to deny your claim. For instance:
- The policy will exclude household damage done by “vermin” or “pests”. The policy may not say it, but they will claim that bats and raccoons fall into those categories, which they do not!
- The policy will exclude damage done by pollution. Again, the policy may not say it, but they will claim that fecal material left by raccoons and bats is pollution – seriously??.
The fact is, raccoon and bat infestation and contamination is a serious danger to your home, health and safety and you deserve to be compensated for any wildlife exclusion and repair work done to your home or building. Our experience dealing with insurance companies gives you an edge when trying to get your claim covered. We will actively fight for you by talking directly with your insurance company and providing you with any materials you need to prove your case…because “Cottom Cares!”.

Although kids in Ohio think that raccoons look like cute cuddly bandits because of their signature black masks, adults know all to well that they are well adapted to urban living, are expert thieves and can be a nuisance – and a potential health hazard.
Before you try to clean an attic after a raccoon infestation, you have to first get rid of raccoons and keep them out. You can hire a professional raccoon removal and exclusion service such as the Cottom’s Wildlife Removal company or do-it-yourself.
Please do not use an attic fogger, bug bomb or a smoke bomb to get rid of raccoons because it is not humane. The most humane way to get rid of raccoons in an attic or chimney is to use a one-way door and exclude them from returning.

Co-Existing With Bats In Ohio
Bats come out in Ohio and are active March through September. Some Ohio residents call the Cottom’s Wildlife Removal company to ask if one bat in their house means they have more.
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.
In Ohio, bats normally hibernate from late October to early April in caves, houses, walls, barns, churches, bridges, abandoned mines, cracks in large rock outcroppings or attics and buildings.
Bats in Cleveland, Ohio include the Eastern Red Bat, the Big brown bat, the Northern Long-Eared bat, the Little brown bat and the Tri-colored Bat.
The deadly white-nose syndrome has been found on bats in Cuyahoga and Geauga County parks in Ohio.
Some colonies of brown bats removed in Ohio by licensed wildlife control specialists at CWR may total a dozen or more.
Bats are mammals that use adapted forelimbs as wings to fly and they are more maneuverable than birds.
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.
Bat exclusion involves using netting or tubes at entry points, which allows bats to drop down and fly away but which prevent re-entry. Exclusion devices are left in place for a week, so that the bats give up. After the bats are gone, plugging, sealing and caulking work is done.
To keep bats out, the Cottom’s Wildlife Removal company seals cracks and openings with heavy-duty bat control screen mesh, aluminum flashing, sheet metal, expandable foam, caulk, stainless steel hardware cloth, chimney caps, flue guards, adhesive sealants, 3/8″ polyethylene knotted mesh, bat netting and other bat exclusion products.

This list of mammals of Ohio includes a total of 70 mammal species recorded in the state of Ohio. Of these, three (the American black bear, Indiana bat, and Allegheny woodrat) are listed as endangered in the state; four (the brown rat, black rat, house mouse, and wild boar) are introduced; two (the gray bat and Mexican free-tailed bat) are considered accidental; and eight (the American bison, elk, fisher cougar, Canada lynx, gray wolf, American marten, and wolverine) have been extirpated from the state. Read more here.
Raccoons can be found throughout the state and in all habitat types, with the majority being found in northwestern and central Ohio along rivers and streams bordering farmland habitats. They have also moved into suburban and urban areas and can live almost any place where there is food for them to eat and a den to serve as shelter. Many of them live, temporarily at least, in drain tiles and sewer systems. Raccoons defecate in communal sites called latrines. They are nocturnal and are up and about during the dark hours of the night. Even though raccoons do not really hibernate, they can sleep for days, and even weeks at a time, during the cold winter months. Read more here.
