Bats are much more than night-fliers zooming through the sky to feast on insects. They can also be pests that invade your home to nest, so if you hear scratching or screeching noises in your attic or the walls of your house, you may have a bat nesting warmly and snugly. Some areas have put bats on an endangered species list, so before you try and remove the pests yourself, call in a wildlife specialist to help you determine if it is safe to do so – and to assist in safely removing the critters.
You may have inspected your home for signs of entry and found nothing even though you are sure you heard scratchy sounds last night. That is probably because bats can fit into a hole that is half the size of a dime and those are difficult to spot from the ground. Sometimes the holes are under siding, next to wiring entering your home, or under a loose board. The sneaky critters can always find a way into a warm attic when they are cold.
There are jokes about bats in belfries, but the fact is the creatures can cause serious health concerns and are terribly destructive. To set up nests, the small critters shred insulation, tear through wires, and gnaw into wooden beams. To make matters worse, bats then leave piles of dung and pools of urine that can cause health concerns for your family.
At the first sign of a creature in your walls or attic, call in a wildlife removal service that can use the latest in thermal imaging to identify the problem. It is important for your family’s safety to move quickly and remove the potential threat by trapping the bats and letting them go somewhere they can live a long life – far away from your home.
After the bats are gone, the technicians can clean, deodorize, and sanitize the area for you. Calling the wildlife service will make sure you win the bat removal battle against bats in your home.
