Bats have a pool party in Cambridge, MD
I recently helped a customer, let's call him Joe, in Cambridge, Maryland. Cambridge is in the Chesapeake Bay area. Joe and his family had called the Division of Wildlife Services and complained to them of their bat problems. The division told them that they really could not do much for him, but that they knew of a privately contracted bat removal specialist that they could refer him to. That is where I came in.
Joe called me off the referral from the division and I came out to survey the situation. Joe and his family live in a new neighborhood, not more than 5 years old, and recently had a pool installed in the back yard. Joe said he has seen over 20 bats coming to the pool at night. They were drinking the water and leaving large amounts of guano behind. Joe said he doesn't know where they are coming from because he had checked around his house and did not see any kind of evidence of them nesting there.
I inspected the situation. I told Joe that bats usually go into water at night to drink and to eat insects. They don't usually come around when people are in the pool. I told Joe that the best way to avoid them getting into the pool at night would be to cover the pool.
He just laughed and said so we're paying you to tell us to cover the pool?
I laughed too and said there is more to it than that. I told him I would like to perform an inspection around his property and home to find the source of where the bats are coming from so I could remove them.
He laughed again and said that I didn't need to inspect the house because it was only a few years old and if bats were living in house somewhere he is pretty sure that he would know.
I said that I wasn't joking and he said again that bats could not be living in his house. They were probably coming from the older neighborhood behind his.
I said that if I performed my inspection and did not find any bats that that he wouldn't need to pay for it.
He finally agreed and allowed me to inspect his house.
I checked the home carefully and found a few nooks and crannies in the eaves of the home where the bats had squeezed themselves into the attic of the house. They were drawn to Joe's home because of the water and plentiful insects about.
When Joe realized he really did have bats living in his "new and clean" home he was in shock. I feel terrible for guys like Joe. It is really hard to hear when you think that nothing like this could ever happen to you or in your home.
I removed the bats from the attic with a simple step process. First I apply repellent, metal fabrics, insect control and a special venting trap. When a venting trap is attached to the openings where the bats are getting into the residence, the trap allows for them to get out, but they cannot return. It is like they can open the door but it gets shut and locked behind them, and no one is going to let them back in.
We solve many types of wildlife control conflicts in Cambridge and surrounding areas. Give us a call if you need expert animal removal and/or live wildlife trapping. We can also perform an inspection of your property to evaluate the problem.
Many of the projects we solve involve raccoon families in attics and chimneys, mud swallow nests on stucco, woodpeckers drilling siding, voles and gophers destroying lawns, rats or squirrels thumping and bumping around inside walls and in attics, bat infestations, skunks stealing pet food, and snakes living in crawlspaces and stone walls.
Along with physical damage and disease, wild animals also bring along disturbance and nuisance with all their noise and commotion and smell. Baby raccoons chirp and chitter like little birds; raccoons and rats will fight all night and keep people awake; skunk smell takes the cake, but have you ever smelled a dead animal in your ventilation system? We have seen much, much more than these problems, but that is a general idea of the kinds of problems that my professional wildlife removal operators and I are prepared to solve.
Not only do my technicians and I trap and remove problem wild animals, we do a lot of other dirty work, too. Don't hesitate to call us for dead animal removal, pigeon waste cleanup, bat guano removal, mouse droppings, decontamination, repairs, above ground and below ground rodent slick fencing, odor control for skunk spray, and the like. We are a full service pest control company with a wide range of animal control solutions.
I have been in the professional wildlife control business for many years. My favorite stories and experiences are removing bats from schools and churches.

Raccoon Destroys Lawn in Cambridge, Maryland
We recently contacted a raccoon removal professional to come out and take care of our raccoon problem.
We live in a wooded area and just spent several thousand dollars to landscape a large steep hill on the back of our property. For the last ten years, this area had been an eye sore with waist high weeds. Well, just a few weeks ago, we hired a professional landscaping company to install a new lawn, trees, and flowers.
When the work was complete, we sat out on the back deck around sunset enjoying our new backyard. My husband noticed a raccoon running across the new grass.
We didn't worry about it because the animal went away. However, when we woke up the next morning and sat out on the deck to enjoy a cup of coffee, we noticed a lot of small holes in our new sod. When we checked it out more thoroughly, we concluded that the raccoon must have been searching for something in the lawn, possibly grubs.
This happened the next night as well. Then the following night, we heard rustling in the ceiling above our bedroom. We checked out the rafters into our home and found that the raccoon had pulled back one of our vinyl vent covers and entered the attic.
As it is against the law to harm raccoons in Maryland, we contacted a professional raccoon remover. He came out and installed a sort of vent thing in the attic.
He said that it would allow for the raccoon to go out, but to not go back in. It is like when you close your garage and then forget your garage code to open it. The raccoon could get out, but not back in. They also sealed the opening so he would be kept out permanently. After the raccoon was safely out, he eventually went away because he was not able to get back into our home.
