About Pest Animal Greensboro and Our Services:
The bats love to roost on the dark and obscure areas of our house. They can use the tiny gaps, holes, cracks, and your vents as an access point to invade your house. Any hole that is as tiny as a quarter can be used as an entry point. A couple of bats during the migration period may not be a cause of concern. However, if you have a colony of bats, you will find yourself in a dire situation. The bat guano can easily accumulate that can damage your structure and spread diseases.
Non-Lethal Methods to Get Rid of Bats
As you all know, most of the species of bats are included in the federal list of protected species. Therefore, you will not be allowed to harm or disturb the bats and their roost. You will have to carry the necessary permits if you want to perform a bat removal process. Here are some of the methods that you can use when driving them away.
Sealing the Entry Points
Your humane method should start by inspecting the affected area. Knowing the area that is receiving the highest level of infestation will allow you to concentrate your efforts at the right place. You can conduct the inspection during sunny day. Wear protective suit to avoid inhaling the fungal spores that can cause illnesses. If there is a serious bat infestation, you can simply watch their movement before dusk. Observe how these creatures are leaving your house. This will help you determine the entry points that they are using. It is also not impossible to find tracks of the bat close to the access point. Seal the entry points using the appropriate construction material. Make sure to do this once the bats are out.
Using Exclusion Devices
When sealing the gaps and holes, you can choose to leave the main entry point open. This is where you will install the exclusion device. This can be made from tubes and nettings. This is designed to allow the bats to leave your property but will block them from returning. Once you install the exclusion device, leave it for at least 1-2 weeks. After that, inspect your attic once more and observe if there are still signs of active infestation. If all signs have been cleared, remove the exclusion device and seal the last hole.
Using Bat House
Bats are actually beneficial to our environment. They can reduce the population of harmful insects such as mosquitoes. If you simply want to remove them inside your house, and you want to encourage them outside your house, then a bat house can be a good option. Install this close to their original roosting place. Choose a bat house the has multiple chambers. You can provide them with an accessible roosting place and prevent them from entering your house.
Removing the bats can be a complex process. If you do not carry license and permit, you might find yourself in a huge legal mess. Therefore, it would be better to let the professional deal with your concern.
