How To Remove Bats From The Attic? Nuisance bats suspected of having rabies should always be left for professionals to remove.
HOW DO I GET RID OF BATS FROM AN ATTIC? Bat removal is not a simple task. So, one day you were coming into your home in the early evening and you notice a bat either working its way through some loose board in the siding of your house or maybe it even swoops writing through the doorway and into your home. 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. Can't I just seal the entry holes shut at night when the bats are out? 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. If it was that easy to solve bat problems, I would not be working 70+ hours a week from April through October.
