Because of their protected status, once the female bats are ready to give birth (they give birth just once a year), the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission institutes a moratorium on disturbing them during this time.
The primary cause for requesting an exclusion is because of staining on buildings, the build-up of significant guano deposits (droppings) and the odor emanating from such deposits, as well as from the urine and the bats themselves.
In Florida, all species of bats are protected from being harmed. This is primarily because of their great importance to the balance of our ecosystem and their unmatched contribution to managing the mosquito population. This legislation applies year round.
However, because bats can also pose some potentially serious health risk to people when they take up residence in buildings, expert companies such as Friends Of Bats are permitted to perform humane exclusions during much of the year. The methodologies employed ensure that the animals leave the premises safely and our guarantee ensures that they can’t return.
