HOW DO I GET RID OF BATS FROM AN ATTIC? Bat removal is not a simple task. First, as stated above, the bats are unlikely to actually consume the poison. 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.  When this happens it can be a natural reaction to try chasing the animal out with a racket or a broom. 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. What problems do bats cause when they live in a building?

If a bat is weak, sick looking and found during the day there is a good likelihood it could be carrying rabies. The most common species in North America that people may find in a colony on their property are the Little Brown Bat and the Mexican Free-tailed bat. These bats reach maturity between 6 and 9 months and babies are born between mid-June and July. Bats usually begin leaving the structures about 15 minutes after sunset. Allowing bats to continue taking up residence in your home can lead to greater worries, including health problems and serious damage to your home. Bat exclusion measures should not be performed from mid-May through early-August, as there may be young bats in the colony that are still unable to fly. We can then perform an observation after sunset to locate the access holes while we are at the site. Instead bats are more closely related to primates and shrews. They carry germs and diseases that are considered toxic to humans and allow the growth of fungus spores that can lead to serious lung problems. A quick tip: If a company claiming to do bat work shows up for an inspection without a ladder, be cautious. If you encounter such a problem, it is highly recommended that you contact a pest control professional who is trained in bat removal.

They can live up to 30 years apparently, though average lifespan in the wild may be about 7 years. There are several different approaches to remedying a bat infestation in an attic. Bats usually begin leaving the structures about 15 minutes after sunset. Certain bat species may hibernate in groups or "clusters", so a single bat appearing in your home during the winter could possibly indicate there are more bats hibernating in the structure. Also, urine. The bats must be removed from the attic, and they are protected as colonies, so they must not be killed. You don't want to kill a beneficial bat anyway. Roosting preference depends on the species and even gender of the bats, but we are only concerned with colonizing bats such as the three mentioned above. If you find that the bat is not hanging from anyplace, then your next option is to search for areas in the home where the bat could crawl into something.
