Having bats in your home is an unpleasant experience, to say the least. Many homeowners don’t know how to get rid of them, so they continue living with the flying mammals—as well as having to put up with their smell and the fact that they may be dropping guano all over the place! In order to make sure you never have to deal with this problem again, here are some helpful tips on how to keep bats out of your home once and for all.
Why Do Bats Enter Homes?
Bats can enter homes for a variety of reasons. There may be an opening into your attic and they are looking for another place to roost. Sometimes people put up bat houses without realizing that there is an existing colony living in their home. A homeowner will think they have created an ideal bat environment, but they really just invited them inside!
The first step in how to keep bats out of your home is figuring out where they’re roosting. Once you find their home, you can start preparing a bat exclusion. You may want to hire a professional, but DIY methods are available as well. Please be careful if you go the DIY route! It can be dangerous. Exposure to the animals, the droppings and the height that you’ll need to work at can all be tricky.
Bat Control Options
If a bat is flying around your home, you may be tempted to swat it with a newspaper or try and capture it. While these methods may work, it’s far more effective (and humane) to have an experienced professional from Metro Wildlife and Pest Control do the job. We can assess your home for entry points and install barriers that will keep bats out and allow them to exit on their own.
How Can I Prevent A Bat Infestation?
Bat exclusion begins with sealing all openings in and around your home, especially around roofs and attics. Entry points are likely any time you see a crack, a hole or damaged shingles. Residents can install exclusion devices at these locations. After sealing, there are usually two primary times during which bats will enter homes: when they are migrating in fall or early spring and when their colony swells due to birthing cycles in mid-spring.
