Description: Little brown bats are 8.5 - 10 inches from wing tip to wing tip. The have dark skin membrane for wings and a mostly tan colored fur on their abdomen.
Habits: A single bat can eat 10,000 or more insects a night. They love to roost high and a small entrance into your attic is a perfect spot for a bat to dwell. With all the good work they do its hard to say get rid of them. However, they leave behind some nasty droppings that can lead to mold and other airborne bacteria and viruses. So you don't want them in your home but you definitely want them around your house. A mouse exclusion involves us getting out of the home and sealing it up so they cant get back in, but you get to keep your bats. It is recommended to get and have a bat house installed on a tree. The ones we exclude are likely to roost their.
FACT: It is a misconception that bats are blind, bats see just as good as a rodent such as a house mouse or rat.
Description: The grey squirrel is 9 - 11 inches from nose to tail. Their coat will be grey with hints of brown and sometimes even red or they can be a solid black.
Habits: Squirrels spend their days collecting and burying acorns. They love to nest high in trees. When a female is impregnated she will want to get away from the males and often end up in your attic. She will load it up with acorns and lay a litter of 2-6 pups. A female squirrel will chew right through your home if you try to seal her away from her babies. When caught they must be taken 10 miles away from your home or over a large body of water, otherwise a female with pups will be back in days.

Habits: Raccoons love to eat whatever they can find. Which means they love all the food we waste. You can find them in the garbage and the garden. They are cunning animals who will work as a team to solve a problem. We have seen raccoons rip off roofs of homes and destroy vacant houses.
