Bats are nature's pest control. They eat thousands upon thousands of some of the worst insects, including mosquitoes. But, as we know because of the coronavirus pandemic, bats also carry dozens of diseases. Their droppings are also filled with illnesses and bacteria.
So while bats have many benefits in nature, they are a serious problem when they live inside of a home. That is why bat removal is critical for keeping you and your family safe. The best company to get rid of bats in Jacksonville is Nextgen Pest Solutions - a bat control, removal, and extermination company.

Why Get Rid of Bats?
Many people are scared of bats. In nature, bats do not deserve that stigma. Though it's true they are vectors for disease, the risk isn't in the bats themselves but rather the proximity of bats to our homes and businesses.
Bats rarely, if ever, attack people without issue. But when they do bite, the consequences run the risk of being extremely dangerous. Bats do carry many diseases, and their bodies are specifically designed to withstand those diseases without any serious health issues, allowing them to spread the disease to other bats (and other animals, including humans) while themselves being asymptomatic.
Still, it's not the bat bites that are the biggest risk. It's their droppings, also known as guano. Within those bat droppings are bacteria, fungi, and more. Histoplasmosis, a fungal disease, is known to grow in bat guano, and is more common in places like Jacksonville than it is in other parts of the country.
Bats also breed quickly and need very little space to hide huge colonies of bats, thus increasing the risk of disease. It's possible for them to find their way into attics and basements, and they are very commonly found in places like wall shingles. With over 21 different species of bat, including 13 that are local to the Jacksonville area, bats are a problem that require an expert to solve.
Who is the Best Bat Exterminator in North Florida?
Bats are so important to nature, that extermination is not the first choice for bats. Indeed, killing bats is actually illegal, and even if it were not it is inhumane and worse for the environment. We do not exterminate bats. Instead, we use humane bat control methods to get rid of bats and remove them from your property.
Our goal is deterrents and relocation. We focus on sealing every entrance that bats have used on your property. With nowhere to live, bats simply find a new home - usually, and hopefully, in a tree or other natural area. Our bat exclusion service guarantees that bats will no longer be a risk of your property, while still allowing this type of wildlife to thrive.
- Makes it possible for bats to exit a property but not get back in.
- Seals any place on your property that bats would try to live/enter.
Bats are relocated and your property is safe and secure.
