Bats are very misunderstood and most people are uninformed about the facts of these flying mammals. Bats are neither vicious animals that might get caught in your hair nor cuddly animals that could be kept as a pet. While they are an essential part of the environment, the last thing you want is to have a bat colony roosting in your home attic, walls, or soffits creating a serious long term problem. Wondering if you have a bat infestation problem?

Here are a few common tell tale signs to help determine if you may have a roosting bat colony.

1. You notice roosting bats – This is the single most common way to discover you have a Post to Post Links II error: No post found with slug "bat-problem-in-house-attic"in your home. If you happen to notice roosting bats in the eaves or in the attic both during the day or at night. Bats are nocturnal, so if you notice them during the day in your attic or along eave points of the roof, you most likely have a bat problem.

2. You find Bat Droppings In the Attic – If you’re a bit worried about heading up to the attic when it’s potentially full of bats, the second most common way to decide if you have a bat problem is to search for droppings in the attic. They actually look quite a bit like rodent droppings, but they’re not quite as scattered. Post to Post Links II error: No post found with slug "bat-guano-removal-in-michigan" tend to be clumped together and located on top of the insulation typically under the taller points of the attic or at the corner connecting areas.

3. You Post to Post Links II error: No post found with slug "hearing-scratching-in-the-attic"Coming From the Attic or Walls – Another fairly typical way to discover you have a bat problem is if you hear an unidentified scratching noise throughout the night in your home, and it seems to be coming from the attic or walls. It can occur during the day as well although most bat activity will be heard around dusk and dawn. While other animals that can infest your home make a variety of noises, bat noises are fairly distinct with a chirping almost clicking type of noise along with the scratching heard from the bats claws dragging against the drywall or paneling.

4. There’s an Ammonia Like Smell – If you do have bats, guano is likely to build up where they’re roosting, and that can lead to an ammonia-like smell. The only problem with this symptom is that by the time you notice it, you probably have a very serious issue on your hands and an attic clean out is most likely needed. Bat guano is very acidic and can quickly begin to deteriorate materials it comes in contact with when your dealing with larger quantities. The most serious problem is the mold that grows on bat feces and can lead to a medical disease called Post to Post Links II error: No post found with slug "histoplasmosis-bat-guano-feces-bird-nesting-waste". If you are at this point of a bat colony infestation an attic restoration is needed to remove all bat guano and damaged insulation, then have the space disinfected, enzyme treated, and mold treated with new insulation installed.

5. You See Bats Leaving Your Home at Dusk – Bats will typically leave the home at dusk to feed, so head outside, and station people at all four corners of your home. Look for any silhouetted bats to fly out. Don’t stop until it’s too dark to view any other bats flying out, to be sure you do this for several nights in a row.

6. Eliminating Bats – If you do discover that you have a bat infestation, the key is to get rid of it immediately. Call a bat pest control company for help. Once the bat exclusion has relocated the colony the company should make certain that all entry point areas are closed off and sealed to keep the issue from reoccurring.
