Avoid Rabies; Seek Professional Bat Control.

Colorado is home to 18 species of bats—some in colonies that stay year-round and others that migrate. These amazing flying mammals live in all parts of the state, including downtown Denver. They provide insect control and bat colonies are a valuable part of control plans for mosquito-borne illnesses, like West Nile Virus.

Bats carry their own diseases, however, including rabies. Of the five animals in Colorado known to carry rabies--raccoons, skunks, bats, foxes and coyotes—bats are the primary carriers.

Rabies is an incurable, deadly virus that attacks the central nervous systems of mammals. It causes brain and spinal cord inflammation. While vaccinations against the disease exist for animals such as dogs and cats, people are not vaccinated and must receive a series of painful and expensive shots to treat the disease if they contact, or are suspected to have contacted, an infected animal.

Bites are the number one way rabies is transmitted, but any contact with an infected animal could lead to disease as any open wound and mucous membranes can serve as introduction sites.

As you may know, bats are mainly nocturnal. If you see a bat during the day or a bat acting very strangely—for example, flopping or crawling on the ground or hissing or making other odd noises—you should not touch it or even go near it. Keep children and pets away. Call a professional for assistance.

Because of their value to the environment, some people will tolerate bat colonies in their homes. This is, in a sense, very environmentally conscious of these people, but there is a great risk and only limited benefit. You can get rid of bats in your home in ways that do not harm the bats and keep the bats from harming you. The animals can live other places like trees, bridges and caves. Contact a professional wildlife removal company like Allstate Bat Control for information on bat colony removal that considers the needs of both bats and humans.

We solve many types of wildlife control conflicts in Denver 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.

For pigeon and bird control, bat removal, or relief from other pest animals, call our wildlife management experts. Many nuisance wildlife companies offer critter capture and control; our wildlife operators provide professional pest wild animal management. We remove the following AND MORE:

  • Bats from attics, eaves and belfries

  • Swallow nests from eaves, stucco, log siding, and exterior walls
  • Voles that tear and dig up lawns and destroy root systems
  • Moles and gophers that damage golf courses and gardens
  • Mice from basements, attics, walls, crawlspaces, etc.
  • Feral cats from parks and neighborhoods

Baby Skunks in Denver Backyard

I am a reporter for one of the local newspapers in Denver. I was recently speaking with my friend Lily and she told me this story about trying to get rid of some skunks in her back yard.

"For the past few nights," Lily said, "we have seen a baby skunk looking for grubs in our lawn and also taking the cat's food and eating it in the backyard. Then last night we saw two of them."

Lily and her husband, Doug, live out in Lakewood which is a suburb of Denver, and have a big pasture behind their house. She said they noticed the two skunks run into a pile of wood they have stacked next to a shed in the back.

"They keep coming back - no matter how many times we try to scare them off," Lily said. "We just don't know how to get rid of the skunks. Our black lab, Coal, is an extremely curious dog and I am afraid that she will get sprayed for sure."

Lily is also worried about letting her children go out and play on the swing-set and sandbox in the backyard.

"I hate telling them they can't play in their own backyard," she said. "I just want to keep them safe."

Doug and Lily talked with their neighbor about the problem when they saw the skunks going into the neighbor's yard. He said he had trapped the mother skunk and thought he had taken care of the problem.

Eventually, Doug and Lily contacted a professional trapper, Maria, through the website www.allstateanimalcontrol.com and she was able to come and safely remove the baby skunks.

"Some people think that if they trap the adult skunk, that they have solved the problem," said Maria. "They don't realize that there could be babies left behind."

Maria explained that sometimes babies are non-mobile yet and if they don't get the nutrition they need from their mother, then they can die and start to rot wherever their mother has made the den.

Lily said she is so glad the she saw Maria's listing and called. "It is so nice not to worry about the skunks and to have the kids go out and play again," she said.
