Bats are exceptional helpers in the surrounding Eco-systems when it comes to insect control; but when it comes to homes and businesses, they are not something you want to have around. Not only are bats capable of causing tremendous structural damage inside and out, but their presence can also pose several health risks to both people and pets. Unfortunately, bat infestations are quite common since they can gain access inside somewhere through a hole as little as 3/8th of an inch wide.

So many homes and buildings are susceptible to bat infestations. And once they are inside, the problems really start to get serious. They can get through crumbling mortar, dry rotting wood, attic vents, exterior cracks, and more. For these reasons, it is vital to address a bat infestation problem right away by contacting a local and trusted Virginia Wildlife Removal and Control Company for non-lethal bat abatement service.

So, who can you trust for prompt and professional bat abatement and extraction in a moment’s notice? Residents of the Old Dominion will tell you to call none other than the leaders in bat removal and control:

Dealing With Nuisance Bats?

When you hear noises in the attic, or spot some suspicious animal droppings around your window seals, it is time to take action.

Do they spread contagious illnesses or parasites? The answers to these questions are very important, mostly because they are true. Fortunately, there are safe and effective remedies for cleaning up after a bat infestation, so long as you choose the right provider for the job.

Bat Diseases

By far, the most stigmatized disease surrounding bats is Rabies. Although bats are known carriers of the deadly virus, it does not mean that all bats are actually infected. If they are infected, bats can spread the virus to both humans and other animals through blood, mucus, or saliva. Because the virus attacks the central nervous system, there is no cure, making it 100% fatal. For this reason, it is vital to keep pets properly vaccinated. If you find a dead, injured, or abandoned bat on your property, see our blog, “What To Do If You Find a Bat” for proper instructions.

Aside from the Rabies virus, bats can spread a wide range of parasites, such as lice, ticks, fleas, and mites. Although not fatal, these outbreaks can be quite uncomfortable, unhygienic, and difficult to eliminate. Parasites like these are very common, and they grow at incredibly fast rates. If such outbreaks are not managed efficiently, it can take a lot of time, money, and construction to resolve. Practically all bat infestations cause some kind of parasitic outbreak, most often, bat mites. See our blog, “Is a Bat Mite the Same Thing as a Bed Bug?” to learn how to distinguish bat mites from similar pests.

Histoplasmosis

Histoplasmosis is a not an illness that is spread by infected bats, but rather, a result of an on-going bat infestation. Histoplasmosis is a serious lung infection that is caused by over-exposure to fungal spores that grow on bat droppings (guano). These Histoplasma capsulatum fungal spores develop on bat guano, and then become airborne. Upon inhalation, pets and people can become infected. Some people may experience more severe complications if it spreads to other parts of the body, known as Disseminated Histoplasmosis. It is especially serious for those with suppressed immune systems, such as babies and elderly folk.

How to Use One-Way Screening to Get Rid of Bats

Sometimes, bats like to use your stuff as their own, namely for a place to live. This time of year, it is common for bats to roost inside jungle gyms, play sets, tree houses, bird houses, siding, soffits, roofing, attics, and more. If you are noticing bats flying in and out of a certain area of your property night after night, there is a simple and humane technique that might keep them out for good. It involves using one-way screening, which is inexpensive and easy to come by. Continue reading to learn where to get it, how to use it, and what to do if the bats still stick around.

Virginia Bat Removal and Control 804-729-9097

One-Way Mesh Screening

One-way screening is simply metal mesh material that is highly pliable. It is available in rolls or sheets at most home improvement stores. You can expect to pay between $4 and $11 for your materials, depending on how much you need and the retailor you choose. A couple great features of one-way screening is its light weight and flexibility, both of which makes it easy to handle and apply. Furthermore, it comes in bulk quantities, allowing you to custom cut the size you need to cover the space the bats are entering though.

How to Use One-Way Screening

One-way screening will allow bats to exit the area they continue to occupy each night, but it will not allow them to re-enter. So, the key is to install your mesh screening while bats are inside. This way, when they wake for the evening to hunt, they will squeeze through and leave, but they will not be able to squeeze back through the other way.

You see, all you have to do is cut a piece of your wire mesh screen to size. You need just enough material to cover the bottom and top of the entry point, including the sides. When you install the screening, you will need to leave a “lip” of screen handing off of the bottom. This is where the bats will squeeze through to get out, but they won’t be able to get back in this way.

Add Some Bat Houses

After you have excluded the bats with your one-way screening technique, it is encouraged to hang a bat house nearby to continue supporting the local bat populations. Furthermore, this will divert their focus on roosting in the bat house, rather than you own house! See our blog, “Tips for Adding Bat Houses to Your Property” to learn what you need to know about bat house installation and management.

How to Follow Up

Once you divert the bats away from their hang-out, it is important that you follow up by having your home inspected for bats. If you have one bat in or around your house, you likely have more. This is especially true when bats are found inside a home or building. To protect your home from future bat infestations, contact a local Virginia bat removal and control company for bat-proofing and abatement service.

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.

Where Do Bats Go in the Winter?

Now that the snow is here, all the local Virginia wildlife are carrying out their winter plans; bats included. Many people assume that all bats migrate just as birds do, but this is not entirely true. Some bats may migrate to warmer climates, but several others will remain right here in Old Dominion. Continue reading to learn more about bat habitats in winter, and what to do if your house winds up being one of them.

Eastern Red bats migrate south for the winter.

Bats and Migration

In the winter, Virginia insects diminish in accessibility, making it difficult for bats to thrive through the season. For this reason, many bat species migrate to warmer climates, sometimes thousands of miles away. Here in Virginia, there are around 15 different species of bat, including the Gray bat, Indiana Bat, Rafinesque’s Big-Eared bat (also known as the Southeastern Big-eared bat), Eastern Small-footed bat, Northern Long-eared bat, Eastern Pipistrelle bat, Silver-Haired bat, Eastern Red bat, Hoary bat, Seminole bat, American Long-Eared bat, Lump-Nosed bat, Ozark Big-Eared bat, Townsend’s Big-Eared bat, Northern Myotis, and of course our state bat, the Virginia Big-Eared bat.

Of these species, the ones that migrate in the fall are Eastern Red bats, Silver-Haired bats, and Hoary bats. These migrating species take shelter in trees, which go bare in the winter, making them quite undesirable. So as a solution, they take flight to Southern regions, like Mexico and the Caribbean. Some stop as near as Arizona and Texas.

Bats That Do Not Migrate

As for the species of bat that do not migrate, well they just find some adequate shelter to keep them warm and protect them from predators, and then slip right into torpor for the remainder of the season. Winter bat roosts often wind up being hollowed trees, abandoned mines, caves, and of course, our very own houses and buildings. Here, bats will enter into hibernation, also known as hibernacula or torpor. This period generally begins around mid-October, but can sometimes be delayed until the temperatures begin to remain under 40 degrees Fahrenheit. Once in hibernacula, bats remain in a torpor-like state until spring emerges with warmer weather.

Bats in the Attic

As a result of land over-development and additional environmental impacts, many local bat populations have been forced to seek shelter in our very own buildings, homes, and structures. It is quite common to find roosting bats in attics, roofs, gutters, downspouts, garages, crawl spaces, wall voids, sheds, barns, pool houses, and even children’s tree houses.

How to Get Rid of Bats on Your Property

Although bats are vital parts of the surrounding ecosystem and highly beneficial to our local economies, we do not want to find them in our house or building. When this happens, trust a licensed and insured Virginia bat removal company for safe and humane bat abatement service at an affordable price.

Bats are Very Small

The species of bats native to Virginia are very small. In fact, they are so small, they can fit through an opening as tiny as 3/8ths of an inch! That is basically the thickness of a nickel. Their small stature aids them in finding access to our homes. Anything from missing roof shingles to crumbling mortar can give bats a perfectly good entrance into the interior spaces of your house.

Common Bat Entry Points:

✦ Crumbling Mortar or Wall Plaster
✦ Missing or Loose Roof Shingles
✦ Torn Window Screens
✦ Cracks or Holes in Siding
✦ Rotted Window Seals
✦ Broken Door Frames
✦ Missing or Cracked Soffits
✦ Chimneys
✦ Attic and Roof Vents
✦ Broken Gutters or Downspouts

If your home has any vulnerable spots such as the ones listed above, it could be the entrance bats used to get inside your attic. Fortunately, all of these vulnerabilities can be resolved with proper bat exclusion services. A bat removal and control company will implement technological methods and strategies to seal up all openings and defects of your home’s exterior to prevent further animal intrusion. They can also use various other strategies, such as environmental modifications and biological applications, to add to your home’s security against nuisance wildlife.

Attic Damages Caused by Bats

Bats leave behind a large mess of bat droppings, urine saturation, property damages, and even bat bugs. There are many common damages bats are known to cause; and the larger the colony, the more mess you will be faced with following extraction. Not only are damages something to worry about, bats and bat droppings can present several serious health risks to both humans and pets. This makes cleanup and repair just as vital as the process of bat removal. A licensed and insured Indianapolis bat control company can provide the proper decontamination, sterilization, deodorization, and restoration your attic needs to recover from a bat infestation.

The Most Common Signs of Bats in the Attic

Here in Virginia, there are several species of bat native to our state; as much as 15, in fact. Of these various species, some are known to live in closer range to urban and metropolitan areas, such as the big brown bat and the little brown bat. As a result, these bat species are often found roosting in residential attics, and therefore, categorized as nuisance pests. Although our local bat populations serve a vital ecological purpose that provides our societies with both environmental and economic benefits, it is not a good situation to have them living inside or around your home.

If you suspect that you might have a bat infestation, continue reading to learn which signs to look for that might prove your suspicions to be true, as well as, how to get rid of bats in the attic.

Bats in the Attic

By understanding which signs point to bat activity, you can better stay on top of home protection and maintenance. As soon as you see any signs that suggest you have bats around the house, or worse, inside, it is important to act fast and resolve the problem before it can turn into a large, costly nightmare.

You see, bats create big messes with their droppings and urine, destroying attic insulation and floorboards, which can lead to ceiling stains and indoor odors. Furthermore, rotted bat droppings (guano) can develop harmful fungal spores that can travel through air ducts and impact the health of both people and pets inside a home.

Here are the most common signs that you have bats in the attic:

☑ Ceiling and Wall Stains
☑ Lingering Odors in Certain Rooms
☑ Strange Noises or Fluttering Sounds in Walls
☑ Dark Greasy Stains Around Attic Windows and Vents
☑ Bat Droppings on Roof or Window Ledges
☑ Seeing Bats Fly Around at Dusk and Dawn Near Your House

Special Note: If you see a bat or two hanging from the eaves of your roof or porch, you might not have to worry; this is common bat behavior at dusk. They are simply resting in between hunting sessions. However, if you see any of the signs listed above, there could be reason for concern. Contact a local and licensed bat removal and control company for humane bat extraction and exclusion services.

How Do Bats Get Inside of a House?

Bats only require a very tiny opening to enter your property. In fact, a gap as little as 3/8th of an inch are all they need to gain access to the common areas the target, such as attics, crawl spaces, garages, chimneys, roofs, and various other areas of a property. Often times, bats use roof and ridge vents, gables, soffits, and chimneys to get inside; however, they can also get lucky with a torn screen door, an open window, loose roof shingles, broken siding, and similar opportunities.

Where Do Bats Hide in a House?

The most common areas for bats to roost inside residential properties are attics and wall voids. They are also commonly found in crawl spaces, roof accessories (flashing, vents, turbines, etc.), and chimneys. Outside of a house, bats are commonly found roosting in log piles, sheds, garages, barns, tree houses, hollow trees, and tree cavities.

How Can I Tell if I Have Bats in the House?

One of the most common signs of bat presence in a house, and often the initial once notice, is hearing strange noises in the walls or ceilings, such as squeaking, chirping, and chattering. You may also hear fluttering noises from their wings as they shuffle around their roosting area. Also, visually spotting bat guano (dropping) or actual bats, is another tell-tale sign that bats are inside. Additional signs include oil stains around entry points, foul odors lingering indoors, and yellow and brown-like stains on ceilings and walls.

Will a Bat Attack Me? My Pets?

Bats are afraid of humans and pets more than you are of them. For this reason, they do everything they can to avoid interaction with either. In the case that a bat is nursing or protecting her young, or ill, they may defend themselves by biting if they are provoked in some way. Often times, curious dogs and cats fall victim to an angry bat trying to fend them off. Pet vaccinations are critical for reasons just like this, and much more.

Do Bats Have Rabies?

Although bats are known carriers of the Rabies virus, not all bats are infected with Rabies. However, you should always treat all bats as if they are actively infected in order to remain as protected as possible. There is no reason to take a chance. Rabies is 100% fatal, and also 100% preventable. Get your pets vaccinated annually, and yourself as well if you work in an environment where exposure is more likely.

What Do I Do if I Find a Bat in the House?

If you find a bat in the house, first get all people and pets to a guarded room. Then open all windows and doors, and gently encourage the bat to fly out of the house using a broom or long handled-device. Do your best not to touch the bat at all; instead, gently glide the broom against the surface near the bat to encourage it to fly away. If this does not work, your next step is to contact a local and licensed Virginia bat removal and control company for emergency bat extraction service.
