Cocoa Bat Removal
Many homes and buildings in the Cocoa and Port St. John areas lie close to wooded areas, making them vulnerable to wildlife such as bats entering the home.
Bat removal can be tricky in Florida. They typically like to enter buildings and roost high above the ground, making exclusion difficult.
Bats are protected in Florida, and they cannot be excluded from buildings during their maternity season, which is from April 15th to August 15th. Bats can also carry rabies, so removing them from a home or structure should always be left to a professional.
We can safely and humanely get rid of bats in Cocoa fast.
First, our technicians perform a visual examination of the building. This is to determine where the active entry points are, where the bats are roosting, and also to identify any non active entry points.

Next, we seal up all the non active entry points on the building. This must be done before removing the colony to prevent the bats from simply entering in through another area.
We then install bat netting, or a cone/funnel system on the active entry points. This allows the bats to safely exit the structure, but not re-enter.

Once the colony is gone, usually within a few days, we can then complete the seal up of the building to keep the bats out permanently.
