HOW DO I GET RID OF BATS FROM AN ATTIC? Bat removal is not a simple task. And you MUST NOT do it when there are baby bats present, or you will have a big problem. There is no effective bat repellent for example that can do the job easily. The proper way to get rid of them is to exclude the colony – seal off 100% of possible secondary entry points on the home and remove all of the bats from the building safely.  If the spray can’t be found then a disinfectant or in a ‘worse-case’ scenario- you can use water for keeping dust and bacteria from travelling into the air so easily. It is often very challenging, and it must be done just the right way. An amateur attempt, by someone with no experience, or worse, a pest control company that uses bat poison, could result in disaster – dead, rotting bats, and bats swarming throughout the walls and the home. Accumulations of their droppings (guano) can cause odor and bug problems, which is the primary reason bats should be excluded from a structure occupied by people.

When this happens it can be a natural reaction to try chasing the animal out with a racket or a broom. Almost every person who gets bit does so because they pick up a sick or injured bat. Studies have shown bats have returned from distances of up to 150 miles, so trapping and "moving" bats only creates a false sense of security for homeowners who see the bats "caught and hauled away". They are simple to construct, don’t cost much to build and can be a wonderful way to spend an afternoon teaching children about these lovely creatures. In addition, many will suggest peppermint spray or oil as well as ammonia. How Do You Get Bats Out of the Attic? - The best tool is education.

If you mess it up, you've got a big problem on your hands. Often they pick locations near water sources so the insects they feed on are plentiful and so they don’t have to travel far for water. The observation night can be at any time during the spring, summer, or fall. While poison can be very effective in getting rid of any bats in your home that actually eat the poison (bats feed off live insects so nibbling on a block of poison is unlikely) it is one of the worst choices.

In central Illinois, young bats are present in nursery colonies from early May through early August. As an attic cools down, cool outside air is drawn into any cracks or holes, and the bats follow the air currents to the exit holes. Absolutely not!
