Bats will often enter homes and other buildings because they are searching for a warm and safe place to roost. Bats are known to roost in caves, trees, and other natural structures, but they will also take advantage of man-made structures that provide shelter.
Homes and buildings provide ideal roosting conditions for bats, as they offer protection from extreme weather, predators, and other threats. Bats are also attracted to the warmth and darkness of attics and wall voids, which are similar to their natural roosting sites.
Bats should not be allowed to roost in homes and other buildings as they can cause damage and create unsanitary conditions. If you have a bat infestation, it’s recommended to consult with a professional wildlife control expert Like New England Wildlife Control to safely remove the bats and prevent them from returning.
Sightings: If you see a bat inside your home, this is the most obvious sign that one is present.
Noises: Bats can make squeaking or scratching noises, especially when they are roosting or in the process of trying to escape.
Droppings: Bats leave behind droppings, which are usually dark and pellet-like, and can often be found near the roosting area.
Smells: Bats have a strong, musty odor that can be noticeable if there are several of them in your home.
Entry points: Bats can enter homes through small cracks and gaps around windows, doors, rooflines, or chimneys. If you see evidence of bats entering or exiting your home, this could indicate that they have taken up residence inside.
Bats can sometimes become a nuisance to humans, especially when they take up residence in buildings. Bats living in homes or other structures can create unpleasant odors and droppings, and their presence can lead to health concerns such as the transmission of diseases such as rabies. Bats are also known to cause damage to structures by chewing on wood and electrical wires. In addition, bat colonies can produce loud, high-pitched noises that can be disruptive to humans, especially at night. While bats are beneficial to the environment and play an important role in maintaining the balance of ecosystems, it is important to address and manage nuisance concerns in a humane and responsible manner to ensure the well-being of both bats and humans.
Removing bats from a building should only be done by a trained professional, as it can be dangerous for both the bats and the individuals attempting to remove them. Bats are protected by law in many areas and removing them without proper permits can result in fines or other legal consequences. The most effective and safe method for removing bats from a building is to identify and seal all entry points, except for one, and then install a bat-specific exclusion device. This allows the bats to leave the structure naturally but prevents them from returning.
Using repellents to try to get rid of bats is generally not recommended as they can be ineffective and can harm the bats. Repellents can cause bats to become stressed, which can result in health problems and even death. Additionally, repellents can cause bats to scatter, making it more difficult to properly exclude them and more likely that they will enter other parts of the building. It is important to use humane and effective methods for removing bats and to always consider the well-being of these important animals.
