Be leery and careful of ANY company providing a service for Bats. In Oklahoma, the service provider MUST BE Nuisance Wildlife Control Operator Certified and Licensed by the State to handle bats and other select wildlife species. Hiring one of the non-certified person(s) or companies can cost you repairs and fines.

We even assisted in writing the N.W.C.O.A. Certification Course.

See the OK Statute Exert below:

With “pup” bats becoming flight capable, bats are going to be looking for places to roost and set up new colonies. Now is the time to have a professional bat inspection & exclusion (bat proofing) performed on your property, and one of our custom bat houses installed, to keep the bats in the area, which will assist in keeping down the population of mosquitoes and the spread of West Nile. Contact us today for a bat house installation. Contact us with any questions. Thank you.

Bat Exclusion Professionals

“Due to loss of natural habitat, some bat species often roost in buildings. And because bat populations are declining worldwide, BCI wants to protect both bats and people by identifying companies that use safe and effective bat exclusion methods.


BCI-recommended exclusion professionals should be licensed by the states in which they work, be insured and use only approved exclusion methods. They should also provide the property owner with a guarantee and a list of references. All written materials should be accurate and scare tactics should be avoided.”

Tulsa Bat Removal of the Oklahoma Wildlife Control® Limited Liability Company is proud to provide the most professional bat removal, eviction, proofing and exclusion service … which does not harm your bats, nor does it contaminate your dearest possessions with poisons or gases. OK Wildlife Control®, L.L.C. is very concerned about the health and well being of bats in Oklahoma. We provide custom bat house builds and installations in order to attract these precious creatures to your properties in order to control insect populations such as gnats, flies, mosquitoes, etc. Bats commonly eat over 1000 insects per night, so their purpose in nature is secured by their actions.

No one want bats in their attics, this is just not a good place for them. This is one of the reasons we build and install bat houses. However; OK Wildlife Control®, L.L.C. will not exclude bats from structures between the third week of May until the first week of September. This is the maternity season … and we do not want to remove the adult females during this period, because it will leave the helpless baby bats in the structures to starve to death, deteriorate and rot in the structure which can pose a health risk in itself. During this time period, OK Wildlife Control®, L.L.C. will answer bat calls, give estimates, evaluations and schedule a time and plan of action more suited to the well being of the bats, and the property owners.

OK Wildlife Control®, L.L.C. offers the humane removal of singular bats OR entire colonies. Removing bats from a building, whether it be residential or otherwise involves a 4 step process:

  • Inspection
  • Exclusion
  • Bat-proofing
  • Cleanup

INSPECTION
This is done to determine the location of the bats in the structure, the number of bats involved, i.e., 1, 10’s, or 100’s and the number of potential entry points, height, building material, etc.

EXCLUSION
Involves installing one-way check valves over the entry points to allow bats to naturally exit the structure, but are unable to re-enter. This usually takes approx. 1-2 weeks to ensure all bats have exited.

BAT-PROOFING
This is done in parallel to the exclusion, it involves going around the entire structure and sealing every crack, crevice and opening greater than 3/8 of an inch in diameter. OK Wildlife Control®, L.L.C. uses a variety of materials to accomplish this, 100% pure Silicon gel, Copper mesh, flashing, etc. This ensures that once the bats are out they are unable to find another way to gain reentry.

CLEANUP
If the infestation has been extensive, both from a time period and size of colony perspective, and cleanup services are desired, OK Wildlife Control®, L.L.C. can arrange for the sanitary cleanup of the droppings (guano).

WARRANTIES and QUALIFICATIONS

  • State Licensed
  • OK State Coordinator for the National White Nosed Syndrome Task Force
  • ALL Bat-Proofing carries a 5 yrs. Warranty, in writing.
  • Humane
  • Annual site inspections included, following Bat-proofing.

* Yearly when maternity colonies are raising their young, it makes complete exclusion during this time frame impractical. Whether you choose OK Wildlife Control®, L.L.C. or another wildlife control firm, be sure and ask them how they handle bats during the months of June to August.

HEALTH TIP
If you wake up in your bedroom and a bat is flying around the room DO NOT release the bat. Local or State Health Departments may want to test the animal. Contact a trained professional to capture the bat.

Guano, Histoplasmosis, and our Services

Large accumulations of guano sometimes breeds a fungus called Histoplasmosis (see article, Histoplasmosis – The Other Hazard of Bats). This fungus can infect an eye or a lung, and in a serious case, you can lose your eye or lung to this infection. Here are some facts to keep in mind if you’ve had bats removed from your home or building:

  • Scattered droppings are not dangerous. They can be swept or vacuumed up.
  • Piles of guano more than an inch deep could contain Histoplasmosis.
  • Histoplasmosis spores become air born when/if the piles are disturbed.
  • If the accumulated guano is isolated in a wall, ceiling or seldom used attic – you may be fine leaving it alone. Over time, the guano will dry out, and the fungus will die – provided the bats do not return to keep adding moisture/new droppings and urine to the pile.

When guano should be removed?

There are several situations that call for guano clean up. They include:

  • Guano is located somewhere that people may disturb it.
  • Remodel is planned in the area where guano is located.
  • An odor persists after the bats have been excluded.
  • The home or building is frequented by the “elderly” and / or “children”.
  • People in the home or building are having respiratory, circulatory or auto-immune problems.
  • Commercial properties where liability is a concern.
