The La Crosse County Wisconsin area is home to hundreds of thousands of bats and many are looking for a nice home to birth their young and to roost in. While it is good to have bats around your property as they eat a huge numbers of mosquitoes, night flying moths, gnats, and beetles, that are prevalent in La Crosse County Wisconsin area, no one wants bats living in their home. The urine and guano of bats will eventually cause an odor and, if left unchecked, health problems. And of course everyone knows a small percentage of bats can carry rabies. There is nothing more disturbing to a good night's rest than to be awakened by a bat flying around your bedroom. Some homeowners and their children have even been awakened by a bat in their bed.

Note to all home owners
With the outbreak of white-nose fungus on bats in New England in 2009, the Wisconsin DNR has decided to enact rules to prevent large-scale die-off in the Wisconsin resulting from human action. Prompt Action Pest Control actively participated in the hearings the DNR held and tried to advocate on the behalf of our customers. And with the new rules we should be able to effectively and timely rid your home or business of bats while staying in full compliance with the DNR rules.
