Bats in Homes

How Do Bats Get Into Attics and Basements?

Bats are small and it is not difficult for them to sneak into even the tiniest crevasses in your home which leads to bats in basement or bats in attics. It is also common for bats to enter through unscreened fireplaces or open windows. If you hear unpleasant noises around your house at night, you may have a bat problem or bats in the attic.

Why Bats Homes Are an Issue

Despite the fact that bats consume many insects in a single feeding, there are many health risks involved with a bats in attic or bats in basement. Many bats transmit diseases, such as rabies, and the defecation of bats homes have been known to cause health problems. This is why it is important that trained experts handle and remove the bats in your basement or attic.

How Are Bats Removed From Homes?

First, the bats in your home will be humanely excluded through the use of one-way doors or check-valves. We identify where the bats are entering and then install these devices over the bat entry points, so when the bats leave at night to feed, they can’t re-enter. It’s important NOT to perform any bat eviction work during the months of June and July, as this is when baby bats are born and the parents will not be able to return to feed their young if one-way doors have been installed, especially for bats in attics. This will lead to dead bats in the attic, which will cause odors, flies and maggots.The trained professionals at Critter Control provide all of these bat-proofing services effectively and efficiently. We will get the bats out of your basement, attic, or any other area of your home.
