If nuisance bats have been a problem in or around your property all year, now is the time to put a stop to all the animal damages. Take a stance against nuisance bat activity and damage by implementing a New Year’s resolution to get rid of bats once and for all. Continue reading to learn exactly what you need to do to accomplish your 2020 goal and keep your home protected from destructive wildlife.
How to Get Rid of Bats
The first place to think about for bat prevention is the exterior of the property. Roof shingles, windows, doors, siding, overhangs, awnings, porches, and more should all be inspected for openings and vulnerabilities. A licensed contractor should be hired to provide professional sealing and repair services to ensure this step is done properly. Once you know your property is adequately sealed from the outside, you can move onto the next phase of bat control and prevention.
There are several products available on the market for nuisance bat control. You can consider trying out some of these devices to see if they can work for you. If they do not seem to add any value, simply return them for a refund. One such device available is an ultrasonic wave machine that use high-pitched sonar emissions to keep bats away. You can also consider a sound machine that emits the sounds of certain predators that bats fear.
Aside from home repairs and electronic devices, you can also install automatic lights outside of your property to keep bats from entering your territory. Bats like the dark, so they will stay clear of bright, lit-up areas. By having them set on motion sensors, you can save energy and keep additional nuisance wildlife away.
If you live in the country or rural area, try compromising with the local bat population by setting out bat houses far from your home. These are just like bird houses except the opening is at the bottom, allowing bats to fly in and hang from the top. This will not only keep them occupied and away from your living quarters, it can also give licensed exclusionists an advantage when relocating them to a safer habitat.
Hire a Professional Bat Removal Company
If you notice or find evidence of a bat infestation in or around your property, it is important to understand that bat removal is not a do-it-yourself job. Never attempt to touch, trap, harm, or kill a bat under any circumstances. Not only can this be dangerous to you and the bat, it can be against the law if the bat is a threatened or federally-protected species. Here in Virginia, our very own state bat, the Virginia Big-Eared Bat (Corynorhinus Townsendii Virginianus), is endangered.
Always use professional bat removal services to get rid of bats, or inspect your home if you suspect bats are inside. They retain the proper licensing and training to LEGALLY and safely remove bats and prevent their return. Never try to catch, harm, or kill a wild bat. Call a bat removal service instead! They use safe and non-lethal methods to remove bats and relocate them to a faraway habitat.
