HOW DO I GET RID OF BATS FROM AN ATTIC? Bat removal is not a simple task. How To Remove Bats From The Attic? 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.  For this reason an attic, garage or barn can be an ideal space for them. 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. Bats will sometimes appear in your home during the winter months.

The cost of a standard BCI approved bat house ranges from $50 to $75. Each bat can poop 20 pellets per day, and if you multiply that number times hundreds of bats over a couple of years, you get an attic full of bat guano! It smells bad, it corrodes wood and drywall, and it can grow mold. Once you have spent the time confirming bats are in your home you’ll want to look for ways they are getting in. The infestation of ectoparasites and other insects attracted by the dead bats can cause problems even more serious than the bats living there. Maternal colonies choose caves to deliver their young because they want shelter and safety from predators. You may see staining around areas a bat can use to enter your home. However, they are not out in the open. These devices can be placed over the entry and when the bats emerge, they cannot return back to the colony. Prior to this, the adults return each morning and feed the young. The piles of urine and feces can contaminate insulation, rot wood and ruin ceilings. It’s good to keep the guano damp so less of the spores drift into the air.
