faq bat
If you have a bat problem, it is best to call an expert to humanely take care of the matter. However, there are some things you can do yourself to keep bats from roosting in your home in the first place. To stop bats from getting in your home, you can close up vents, holes and cracks, old chimneys, etc. You’ll need to block the space while the bats are out and not inside your home.
A typical method for getting rid of bats in your home is to use the exclusion method. This method involves putting tubes or nets in places where the bats get in. The infrastructure lets the animals fly out of their roost but stops them from being able to find their way back in. The excluding equipment is usually left for a week, after which time the bats typically give up trying to get in. When they have left, the spots where they get in can be plugged, sealed, and caulked.

Bats love dark, cozy, dry areas to escape the elements and predators. The attic or other roof spaces are ideal spots for them to roost. If you have outbuildings, these are also common spots.

A bat will easily find any small gap and get in. Be sure cracks and holes around the following areas are well sealed to keep them out:

  • Chimney
  • Windows and
  • Framing
  • Vents
  • Roofing
  • Sidings
  • Walls
  • Fascia boards
  • Any other less-used spaces

It can be tempting to let bats stay. After all, they do help keep insect populations down. While this may be useful, the creatures can also be a nuisance.

When the population expands, it can reach infestation proportions. Large bat populations can get noisy, extremely unhygienic due to guano and urine, and can even cause damage to the structure of your home. So, it is best to remove populations before they become a more severe issue.

In the wild, bats are found in most habitats. They can live in woodlands, deserts, caves, and farmland. They also make their homes in suburban and city buildings.

They roost in many different natural and man-made structures. They often settle in caves, trees, gaps in buildings, bridges, attics, and barns.
