The biggest problem that comes with bats is the guano. While at your property, Bayview bat control will identify the entry points bats are using to access your home and make recommendations to exclude them permanently. What if a bat has gotten into the living quarters of my house, like bedroom or living room? 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. The first reaction is to immediately seal all the holes on the structure. 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.  Because of my experience, and knowing what it takes to do it right, and the consequences of failure, I highly recommend hiring a professional who has a lot of experience. 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. There are no vampire bats in the United States, although they can be found in South America and there are a few in Central America.

Exclusions are usually performed in late summer and early fall. People seldom notice small cracks or gaps on higher buildings, but a 1/2" crack in a mortar joint 30 or 40 feet off the ground becomes a superhighway for bats to enter a structure. This would occur when a bat is picked up or otherwise mistakenly contacted. SECRET PRO TIP FOR GETTING RID OF BATS IN THE ATTIC: I often do the bat exclusion and seal-up work at night! Yes, I'm high on a ladder and crawling all over a roof at night. More bats = better chance of being noticed. You should instead try to open every possible exit for the bat and allow it a chance to escape on its own. Bat houses are not a solution for a bat problem in a structure. Inspection: You have to find out how the bats are getting in and out of the building, where they are living, what species they are, and what damage they have caused. But because they can enter via dozens of other non-primary, you want to seal off potential entry holes beforehand, so that excluded bats don't find an alternate way in. Most people get quite concerned about having a bat in their home because of how dangerous these animals can be. That will result in disaster.

It can accumulate in huge amounts, contaminating an attic and potentially causing lung disease for the people in the house. They are neither strong enough nor are they long-lasting enough to keep bats at bay. Bats are not blind, and they do not intentionally get tangled in your hair. Bats are not rodents, and have little in common with mice or rats. Working in the wildlife control business has allowed me to see this first hand. Once it dries it can release toxic fungal spores into the air. They then fly back out to feed some more. Bats, being a protected species, must be handled by trained professionals like our team.

This can obviously become quite labor intensive on some structures. Instead of using traps, bat control is done by using a systematic exclusion program. You absolutely do not want to remove the bats during the maternity season, when there are young, flightless bats in the attic. These stains are left by the oil on their skin and/or urine. Read more about how to catch bats inside the house here. The second step involves sealing all gaps, cracks, and holes, leaving the primary access hole(s) open. Often people think this swooping is the bat diving in trying to attack people. They can live up to 30 years apparently, though average lifespan in the wild may be about 7 years. Their wingspan is from 8. This makes them look much bigger, especially if one is flying around inside your home. TIME OF YEAR: If the attic is warm enough, year round.
