so now nobody can exclude unless they kill or relocate the wildlife? interesting point of view in this industry to take.
i'm also interested if you can decide which of a 50-100 bats crawling around in a panic inside a metal box when they
expected to emerge and fly are "sick" ones?
if you can really identify sick bats in a trap you should really send an email to the CDC or WHO, I bet they would pay nicely
for that skill.
exclusion is to solve the homeowners problem, they have defects in their home that allowed bats to be there, we all know this.
but in your opinion they will move next door and so in this case you must go offer exclusion for free to the neighbor right?
if not how do you guarantee no bats ever again unless you exterminate all bats in your area?
the idea that you do what the homeowner thinks is best when they aren't the professional says you are not professional.
if I went to a coyote call and the homeowner heard a 330 was a good set for their residential yard, would I put that trap out?
this industry is begging to be regulated and AR groups are always looking for poster boys for the bad methodology that
entirely lacks any evidence of being necessary.
i wish you could see that you do not need to use a bat trap to exclude, how many excluders with 20+ years of experience
are using that tool?
how do they get by without this magical device?
like everyone i get uneducated homeowners calling for advice and assistance every day.
my job is to educate them and dispel myths and make human wildlife conflict the most reduced it can be while making
yesterday morning had a call where the homeowners husband had killed 3 bats the night before that made it into the home.
animal control, and other local law had been there and removed the bats. when i arrived she wouldn't even take my cards because
they have bat images on them. i caught a single bat on her foyer ceiling and animal control gave me a live bat they removed that
by the time i left after excluding she not only took my cards and texted all her friends in this village, but she also let me release
the bats on her property to return to their young, and is allowing the colony to stay till blackout is over for pups.
this is part of my job as a wildlife control professional, what i see in this thread is damaging to our industry and I only feel pain
seeing the unrelenting need to use a device for exclusion that should only be used in extremely specific capture needs.
additionally many people don't know they have bats for many years, so the idea that you will just roll down the block excluding is laughable
at best. 90% of homeowners won't know they are there and 60%+ won't pay if they do.
also I have to say, just because other folks do bad things, vacuum, smash, etc.... that doesn't make it a defensible argument for an industry
seeking professional acknowledgement.
i've seen enough here to completely understand why this industry is going to get twisted by the AR folks until they break!
