About Springfield Bat Removal

Welcome to springfieldmobat.com. We are the only qualified bat removal company in Springfield, Missouri. People tend to not notice bats that much because they're nocturnal. So it can take a while to notice if they've moved into your home. When that happens, call a bat removal company to handle the situation. Animal removal is best left to the experts, since they have the tools and experience to take care of the issue without anyone getting hurt. That's why we do the work we do, because not only do we want homeowners to feel safe, we want the bats to be safe, too. Once the bats are removed, though, there's nothing stopping more bats from moving in to take their place. Except us, that is, because not only do we offer bat removal services, we will also inspect and seal up any potential entry points the bats used to get into your home at the start. Bats can fit into small places, being small themselves usually, so without an expert eye finding where they can settle in is difficult. Fortunately we're experts in bat removal and prevention. We want people and bats to both live happy lives, and that's why we work hard to ensure bats can live their lives in a safe place, and that people can live in homes without bats. Our bat removal and prevention services are designed so that everyone can be happy, including the bats. As much as we'd like recurring business, we figure people would rather their homes remain bat free. The bats don't like being moved around a lot, either, so we solve the problem for good. We operate 24-7-365, so don't hesitate to call us at 417-727-0954 to discuss your bat problem and schedule a fast appointment.


We are experts at removing bats from residential properties. Whether you have a single bat trapped in your house, a colony roosting in your attic, and/or various other problems, there is no need to worry! During our removal process, we make sure to inspect your entire home carefully, tracking down all the entrypoints bats are using to invade your place. Next, we perform a process called live exclusion (where no bats are harmed and all exit your property), then seal all entry holes completely shut. We also take care of the cleanup process after, so your home is safe and clean!

Besides residential areas, we also have a wealth of experience removing bats from commercial properties! We begin by investigating the area for possible bat entrances, covering holes even as small as 1/4 of an inch. Through our live exclusion process, bats leave the building through one-way exits, and we seal up every hole afterward. Once the bats have been removed, we perform a cleanup process. This includes dealing with guano, replacing damaged insulation, and decontaminating the place.

What Our Customers Say

Is bat feces dangerous to touch or breathe?

The Problem with Bats

When bats enter your home, they make a massive mess. These animals leave their droppings all over the place, leading to pungent smells throughout the house along with some disgusting stains. Bat guano is also known to eat away at surfaces, which leads to structural damage that can collapse your entire home.

But are these all the problems bat guano causes, or are there more reasons to avoid the stuff?

Bat Guano and Disease


What many don't realize is that bat guano is the source of a deadly disease called histoplasmosis. This is a fungus that mostly grows on bat or bird droppings, and it's a dangerous disease.

Sometimes, histoplasmosis doesn't cause any damage. In fact, a lot of people who contract the disease experience little to no symptoms. Yet at other times, the disease can cause a lot of problematic symptoms, such as the following:

  • Fevers and chills.

  • Both headaches and muscle aches.

  • Dry coughs.

  • Discomfort in the chest.

This disease mostly targets the lungs, which is why people who already suffer from lung diseases are particularly vulnerable. These people experience some of the worst effects of histoplasmosis, where they start having bloody coughs, a loss of appetite, and other symptoms of tuberculosis.

Yet the worst instances of histoplasmosis are when the individual already has a compromised or weak immune system. This means the body can't fight off the fungus, so the disease is able to spread to more than just the lungs. It'll affect everything from the mouth to important organs like the liver and even the central nervous system (your brain and spine).

That's why you should seek immediate medical attention if you start experiencing any of these symptoms. Otherwise, you run the risk of permanent damage or even death.

Spread of Bat Guano

Now that you know how dangerous histoplasmosis is, you'll no doubt avoid it. The problem is that this fungus spreads around easily.

That's because bat guano quickly dries up and turns to dust, carrying the diseases with it. So even if you avoid touching bat guano, you can still contract histoplasmosis by being in the same room and breathing it in.

That means you should not touch or breathe in bat guano, or you risk catching a deadly disease.

Removing Bat Droppings

Because bat droppings are so dangerous, you should act quickly to remove them. It's important to take the right precautions to make this as safe as possible.

Step 1: Use Protective Equipment

Before you start cleaning, you need to protect yourself from diseases. You should wear an air filtration mask to prevent yourself from inhaling the particles in the air. You should also put on gloves so you don't touch any guano yourself.

Some people also wear protective clothing to stop the dust-like guano from sticking to their clothes. You can even spray the area with water before you start working, in order to keep dust particles down.

Step 2: Remove the Guano

Your next step is to remove all the guano in the attic. This is a dangerous task, but it's essential. You should use a vacuum or some other specialized device to remove all the droppings. Make sure you don't miss anything.

Step 3: Disinfect the Area

Once the guano is gone, it's time to disinfect the area to get rid of the germs that are too small to be seen. It's recommended you use an enzymatic cleaner for this, as it'll eat away hair and droppings that are too small to be seen.

If you don't have an enzymatic cleaner available, you should use your strongest cleaning agent.

Professional Help

If you don't have the time or you don't feel up to the task of removing guano, you should call a professional. These experts can help with all the steps, from removing the animal to cleaning up the waste afterward.

These experts also already have all the best gear for the job, so they'll deliver better results.
