The bats may fall through a damaged ceiling and a child accidently come into contact with one, unknowingly becoming infected with the deadly disease. A bat that is out in the daylight, not active or easy to catch can be sick and quite easily with rabies. These bats will form huge colonies, up to several million members in some cases. What Is Rabies? Rabies is a disease that is caused by the virus Lyssavirus Rabies. The virus is found in the saliva of the animal and enters the bloodstream of any living thing it bites. During the spring, summer, and early fall we often schedule inspections in the afternoon or evening. The cool air from your home can escape into the attic through very small cracks and holes, and the bats simply follow the currents to the source, accidentally ending up in your living area. They emit high-pitched chirps and read the sonar-like returns of the sound waves as they bounce back off of objects. I have seen MANY people install a bat house in their yard thinking the bats will move from their attic into the bat house. In very small amounts it's not a huge deal. During these months the bats in your attic are either delivering their baby or taking care of the flightless pup.

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. The first reaction is to immediately seal all the holes on the structure. Female bats give birth to only one baby bat per year, and raise it well. It is possible to perform exclusions in the spring, but spring exclusions must be completed by the middle of May to eliminate the possibility of stranding young bats in the structure. They often crawl down between walls or down along plumbing or wiring, and commonly find their way into basements.

This could even be areas such as between seat cushions, underneath entertainment centers, behind cabinets, or other areas that allow the bat to be virtually invisible. Keep in mind that a bat will avoid sunlight if at all possible. Or, you an just watch the house at dusk and see where they are coming out. What Is Rabies?

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. Never seal your home without performing an exclusion! In some instances the primary entrance/exit holes are the only access points available, and basic repairs and an exclusion may be sufficient, while others require a week or more just to perform the complete bat-proofing process. This would occur when a bat is picked up or otherwise mistakenly contacted. How to Get Rid of Bats in the Attic: The process is definitely not simple. So if you seal at night, you will be sealing some in. If there is a bat colony in the attic, it is best to exclude the bats from returning.
