Holes along TV cables, water pipes, and cracks in drywall or gaps in ceiling tiles are all possible entrance points. They may make several trips per night.

It may be wise to arrange for an inspection in the spring. We inspect the building/home which allows us to provide a quote for the exclusion and bat-proofing. It is absolutely critical this isn’t done during between May and the end of August. If it's just a few bats, it may not be a big deal. We also inspect the attic or other possible internal roost areas if possible. I do highly recommend that you hire a professional with experience to solve your bat problem. How to Kill a Bat Exclusion is the more humane method and the only effective method of removing bats from your home. Our bat removal specialists at Attic Solutions can help you take your home back from pests. In some instances the primary entrance/exit holes are the only access points available, and basic repairs and an exclusion may be sufficient, while others require a week or more just to perform the complete bat-proofing process. If the bat gets into your home during the nighttime then the best thing you can do is to shut off the room that you believe that it is in and wait till the day. Our inspection costs reflect time, travel, and preparation of the exclusion program details.

It’s good to keep the guano damp so less of the spores drift into the air. Exclusions are usually performed in late summer and early fall. If anyone in the home was unknowingly bitten or scratched, by the time rabies symptoms appear it is too late for help. They are generally harmless animals, they don't chew on wires like rodents do, but the main problem they cause is that they poop and pee a lot. More bats = better chance of being noticed. The other commonly found bat is the Little Brown Bat. Unlike larger nuisance animals like raccoons, it can be difficult to know you have a colony of bats until you have many. Interesting fact: the bats in your attic are actually all females! They are called a maternity colony, and they are in your attic in order to have a safe place to give birth to and raise their young. If bat houses are installed before the exclusion, there is a chance they may start using the bat houses after the exclusion devices are installed. They can leave millions of droppings (guano) all over your attic. Bats are not blind, and they do not intentionally get tangled in your hair.
