Watching a real live bat attack is much scarier than watching one of these fake videos. Bats are a problem all over North America. They can be found in all fifty states, plus they are more common during certain times of the year. In old age, or if there is a lot of deadwood in your attic, bats are a natural part of your environment.
But if you have warm summers and mild winters, and you have allowed your attic to fill up with rotting wood and other garbage products, then you have an infestation problem. In addition, if you have exposed young children to bats, then you may also have a bat infestation problem.
What are the signs of an infestation? How do you know where to look for them? There are many tell-tale signs that help identify bat infestations. The main tell-tale sign that you should watch out for is the presence of guano in your attic. Guano is the remains of bats, and it is usually very dark and smells awful.
What is the normal range for bats to roost in an average attic? In old houses, they would roost in the center of the attic near the floor joists. Nowadays the normal range for a bat colony to roost is somewhere between the floor joists and the ceiling.
If you see a smattering of bats around the edges of your cubby house, but no evidence of a bat colony, then there may be bats in your attic. What does “no evidence of a bat colony” mean? Bats will usually discard their entire breeding colony – every single bat – at the end of the year.
This is called “mating season.” If you find dead or dying bats in your attic, or droppings in your attic, then you most likely have an infestation. You may see evidence of multiple bats when you check around, but it is impossible to know without a thorough inspection of the entire structure.
How can you know if there is a bat activity in your attic? You can check with your local university, or wildlife office, to see if there has been any recent research on bats in your area. Universities have been studying bat life and behavior for years and will surely be able to let you know if there is not a current bat problem.
Wildlife offices can tell you what kind of bats are in your area, and if there is any evidence of bat droppings. Usually, bat droppings contain pheromone scents that can give you an idea of the species of the animal that created the smell.
I would not advise you to try to remove bats yourself. Professional bat removal is best for bat infestations. If you do decide to remove bats yourself, there are some precautions to take. There are products on the market that can help you get rid of bats, but they are for professional bat removal only.
For an individual, there are several ways to do bat removal from your attic. You could hire a pest control company to spray the home with pesticides, or call a professional bat removal service to do it professionally. If you are unsure of how to remove bats yourself, it is better to call a professional.
Make sure that you completely empty out any and all areas that have bats in them. Do not wait to have the bats in your attic examined by an expert until your problem is too large to deal with. The inspection should be free of charge, as it is part of the bat removal service’s job.
