What To Expect From Bird And Bat Removal With ATC Pest Control
ATC Pest Control offers bird and bat removal services catered to individual habitats. Our process depends on the layout of your building and any species affecting the area. Take a closer look at our removal procedures below.
- Birds: All bird exclusion and removal begins with an inspection. We remove the birds from the area using humane methods, then install exclusionary netting to prevent their return. Once installed, the netting remains virtually invisible to any human visitors on your property. We make sure all lights, electrical components, and utilities are still accessible after the installation. The exclusionary aspect of our bird control is both extensive and complex. Leveraging the resources of Bryan Guderjohn, our Chief Bird Engineer, we have reached the rank of Master Installers for Bird B Gone technology and far exceed our competition. We've traveled the world to install our netting solutions and can engineer your project from the bottom up, resulting in masterful outcomes that withstand the test of time.
- Bats: Bat mitigation and removal are easily managed by the experts at ATC Pest Control. We are licensed to perform this service any time of year and boast 25+ years of hands-on experience. Once ATC Pest Control identifies the bat colony around your home or business, we implement specialized equipment for our safety and the safety of the bats. A netting funnel installed for two weeks eliminates access to entry points, meaning bats can leave but cannot get back inside. Once all bats have vacated the building, ATC seals the entry point(s), removes all droppings, and sanitizes the area. If insulation is too soiled to remain in the building, we replace affected areas on your behalf. All bat work comes with a one-year warranty, which can be renewed each year to continue your protection. Since our bat removal service is 100% guaranteed, you can rest easy knowing your property is protected.
If you'd like to speak with Mr. Guderjohn directly about available treatment options, please call our office with a serious inquiry for a set consultation fee.
Our Bird And Bat Removal Process
We evaluate your home or business for signs of bat or bird infestations. Droppings, property damage, and nesting points are some of the most common symptoms. We take your comments and insights very seriously and carefully evaluate all the areas where you have noticed pest activity. Once we are familiar with the environment and can see where pests are getting inside, we offer our years of expertise in a culminated project.
Our team installs the correct exclusionary materials for your bird or bat problem. Netting is an important part of this process, as well as other critical solutions designed around your unique property. We rely on state-of-the-art technology and cutting-edge tools to remove offending pests while leaving room for you to access essential electrical components, switches, lights, and more.
We ensure birds and bats never return to your property by taking an Integrated Pest Management approach in our work. All pests are removed without the use of harmful traps and instead are gently nudged away from your property with the use of exclusion techniques. Sanitation services are always offered for bat removal services, along with a 100% removal guarantee.
Do You Have A Bird Problem?
Birds have an important role in the environment and the world’s ecosystem. They even have an impact on human health, agriculture, and food production. While birds and their eggs can be a portion of food by humans, they can also contribute to agriculture with the bird poop as a useful fertilizer.
There are three of the most common bird pests to be considered:
The pigeons are also called rock doves or rock pigeons. They depend much more on humans for food, prefer grains for foods. Sometimes humans may not notice when feeding these birds by spilling food or in open trash containers. They are mostly found in cities around parks, buildings, bridges, and any other structures.
The European starlings mostly nest in tree holes, birdhouses, and most holes in a structure. They frequently take the place of a native hole nest from woodpeckers or other native birds. They travel in flocks but in the common residential settings, starlings will occupy trees or perch on gutters—which may be clogged when the rain comes.
The house sparrow lived around humans for long periods of time, they are common in the countryside around farmsteads. These kinds of birds are similar to pigeons or doves. They can be mostly found around parks or city streets cheeping from a perch on your roof or trees in your yard.
When birds decide to nest at your home, you may need to learn a thing or two about the following indications. They either invade on roofs, ledges, attics, or chimneys. That being so, birds make noises in making their nest especially if they have young chicks. When they start to make the nest, you will notice some waste scraps and bird feathers. Plus, you might beware of bird droppings or bird poop. Bird droppings may cause disease, danger, or even damage. They prompt humans to slide and fall. They might accelerate the aging of structures and statues. On the other hand, they may carry diseases such as cryptococcosis, toxoplasmosis, salmonella, food poisoning, and more. Their droppings may harbor the growth of fungus, which causes histoplasmosis or other people to have allergic reactions like asthma.
Why Our Bird Control?
Birds may cause damage to property or equipment by nesting on edges of the roof or in ledges. They also frequently steal from crops and fruit orchards while they drop occasional debris on your head. As a solution, we facilitate the transfer of these free-flying flocks in the right place instead of damaging your homes or gardens.
At ATC Pest Control, we understand that you want to get rid yourself of this nuisance without harming the birds. We take a humanitarian approach to bird control and whenever possible will remove the offending birds without harming a feather. No matter what you have been told by other companies, ATC can develop bird solutions for any issue anywhere in the world. Once installed, the netting is virtually invisible. We make sure all lights, electrical components, and utilities are still very accessible after the installation.

This simple installation takes less than 24-hours. It is performed in 20°F weather with 15-20mph winds—it was cold. First, we install cable clips to the steel beams. Then, we run a cable through the clips and secure the cable on both ends. Next, the turnbuckles. Once the cable is tight, we can then start to install the net. Installing the net is very important to keep while you can go tight as you need. Once the net is up, it’s time to go back and cut out the lights. Although it may look easy but mind you, there are less than 12 installers in the world that can do it—and we have 4 trained ones.

Bat Control Services
WARNING: DO NOT TRY TO SELF-TREAT! Bat Removal Service is best left to the experts at ATC!
If bats infest your home, it is a serious concern. Their droppings, dead bats, and insects are the issue. The droppings become very dangerous when they dry out and are disturbed. Their dry dust can infect your lungs and cause fluid build up, a condition called histoplasmosis. Ecto parasites, like fleas, are also attracted to the dead bats and their droppings. If you remove the bats without treating the ecto parasites, you can be facing an entirely new infestation requiring additional treatments.
The Treatment Process
This is a service best left to the experts at ATC. We have been doing this for 25-years. We are licensed to perform this service anytime of the year. ATC has the specialized equipment for our own safety and can remove all droppings in a safe manner for your family as well. ATC takes great care not to harm bats during our removal program. Typically a netting funnel is installed for two weeks over the entry point(s). The bats leave but cannot get back inside. After a few weeks they move on. Once all are gone, ATC then seals the entry point(s) and removes all droppings. Sometime insulation needs to be replaced and we take care of the too. Once everything is clean we sanitize the entire area. All of our bat work comes with a one year warranty which can be renewed each year to continue your protection.
Bat removal is very serious and that is how we approach it. We are very professional and safety is our utmost concern. We take our time and stand behind our work; our Bat Removal Service is 100% guaranteed.
