The Critter Squad – Bat Removal Service
This would be pointless, not to mention very harmful to the bats, and usually resulting in a failed exclusion.
These stains are left by the oil on their skin and/or urine.
Most people get quite concerned about having a bat in their home because of how dangerous these animals can be.
That is the main principle.
It's often easy to spot where they are going in and out, because they leave brown staining from the grease and oil in their fur, at the entry point.
Oddly enough, we have found many insurance companies will not cover the exclusion cost, but will cover the guano removal and clean-up program.
And it's illegal to kill them.

This is why you need to make your search in places where it could be in the dark as the sun shines into your living room, bedroom, or attic.
They gather to mate before hibernating and the females store the sperm inside of their body until after hibernation.
Why do bats like to live in attics?
Instead bats are more closely related to primates and shrews.
Very similar to the Mexican free-tail, the Little Brown Bat is also nocturnal, hibernates and feeds on large amounts of insects.
Bats are nocturnal and enjoy roosting in very warm areas.
With a large colony of bats, this really adds up.
Quite the contrary, as less than 1% ever contract rabies, and it is highly unusual for a bat to contact a person, through a sick bat may have no fear of a human or other animals.
Studies have shown bats have returned from distances of up to 150 miles, so trapping and "moving" bats only creates a false sense of security for homeowners who see the bats "caught and hauled away".
Bats will sometimes appear in your home during the winter months.
In the middle, is a huge swarm of bats, over 1000, entering and exiting a hotel 8 stories up.
Their echolocation system enables them to locate a tiny insect flying in total darkness.
Attach it to create a funnel, which will guide the bats out.
You don't want to kill a beneficial bat anyway.
They mate in October, before winter hibernation, and after a delayed fertilization and a 60 day gestation, give birth to one or two baby bats in early June.
In some instances the primary entrance/exit holes are the only access points available, and basic repairs and an exclusion may be sufficient, while others require a week or more just to perform the complete bat-proofing process.
If the colony is large enough, people also notice the noise they make.
In addition, it can positively impact the environment by offering shelter for these harmless little creatures that are so good for the ecosystem.
And it's illegal to kill them.
Never seal a primary entry/exit spot before an exclusion.
Bats do not attack people, and a fear of bats is caused by a lack of education about them.
There are many different plans for bat houses.
At this time one egg is fertilized and then the female joins a maternity group.
Restricting access of the females to the young will prevent feeding of the young and they will die.
TIME OF YEAR: If the attic is warm enough, year round.
