HOW DO I GET RID OF BATS FROM AN ATTIC? Bat removal is not a simple task. Bats, being a protected species, must be handled by trained professionals like our team. 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. Check inside during the day and look for daylight after sealing. 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. Releasing them usually sends them right back to your home and trapping is difficult and dangerous for the person and the bat.
What species of bats typically live in attics?
The infestation of ectoparasites and other insects attracted by the dead bats can cause problems even more serious than the bats living there.
Bats are not blind, and they do not intentionally get tangled in your hair.
Since bats consume extremely high numbers of mosquitoes and other night-flying insects, they are very beneficial to have around.
Plus you'd be breaking the law, but that's the least of your concerns, compared to potentially hundreds of stranded baby bats now crawling down your walls, into your house, and eventually dying and rotting & stinking.
When bats take shelter in a home it is almost always an all-female maternity colony setting up house to have their babies.
If there is a bat colony in the attic, it is best to exclude the bats from returning.
First make sure to keep safety in mind.
Other Areas You May Find Bats.
Where you want to start is by looking for places where the bat can hang.
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.
We can now safely remove bat droppings, bird droppings, and other animal waste accumulations from structures.
They are going to locate a new roost site in the area anyway, so it makes no sense to haul them away first.
But they are fragile animals, and they can't claw or chew their way back in, so if you do your job right, you'll never have bats inside again.
There are quite a few different species of bats in North America; however the ones that are known for colonizing are the species that most often cause problems.
If the bats are going to fly right back to their established roost site area, why not just evict them from the structure and save them the hassle of flying back.
TIME OF YEAR: If the attic is warm enough, year round.
The second step involves sealing all gaps, cracks, and holes, leaving the primary access hole(s) open.
Their fragile ability to reproduce and their importance to the ecosystem is why it’s important that these animals aren’t harmed senselessly and is the reason they are usually protected.
Most people notice the odor first.
You'd be amazed at the holes you see at night that escape you by day, and the bat behaviors you see that ensure 100% success.
There are many methods used to remove the bat, such as picking it up with thick leather gloves, gently smothering it in a towel, the old tupperware and paper trick, etc.
Many people think that they should trap the bats and get rid of them this way however this is not the best way to get rid of bats.
Once it dries it can release toxic fungal spores into the air.
Since they are nocturnal and for the most part very quiet animals, they often use attics for years before the odor from the build-up of droppings alerts us to their presence.
They are not.
A quick tip: If a company claiming to do bat work shows up for an inspection without a ladder, be cautious.
The reason bats sometimes appear to be swooping towards us is due to the fact they are simply zoning in on the insects we attract.
Always use a towel or some other kind of garment that you can wrap the bat in to get rid of it.
On many structures it is possible to locate the access point(s) by performing a detailed inspection of the outer structure.
First off, I have to say that if you know what you are doing, you can solve your bat problem permanently.
Contrary to most bat research, Little Browns will also hibernate in structures.
That is the main principle.
