How to Get Rid of Bats

 

There are several ways to get rid of bats from inside a house, its walls or attic space. If a bat gets inside of the living quarters and it appears that there is no colony present in the attic, they can be physically removed by a trained professional who has proper protective equipment.

Don’t try to catch the bat in a towel or sheet, and don’t try to hit the bat with anything. You’ll only keep the bat flying around your home, and you might even cause damage to your personal property. If a bat is inside your home, simply open all of the windows, remove or raise the screens, and open all of the doors that lead to the outside. Turn the lights off inside your home, and the bat will eventually fly out on its own.

Although bats aren’t aggressive creatures, bats are known to be carriers of rabies, so never attempt to handle a bat if you find one in your home or outbuilding. If you have been bitten by a bat, seek immediate medical care at a hospital or emergency care clinic.

There are different techniques and strategies for relocating a bat colony infestation in an attic. Michigan does carry laws and regulations that address bat control which provide specific requirements for removing these protected animals and disposing of their waste and disinfecting the area. It is important to avoid using any home remedies to control bats, including those which involve mixing household cleaning products and chemicals. If you encounter such a problem contacting a wildlife pest control professional who is trained in bat removal and control is recommended.

If there is a bat colony in the attic a live exclusion must be performed with repairs to close off the open areas to prevent the bats from returning. Maternity colonies, or colonies of females gather to have their young who are dependent on their mothers for the active season. No colony should be excluded from return until the young are capable of flying due to the adults which return each morning and feed the young. Closing the access areas would prevent the females from feeding the young and they would die. As your local bat control specialist Drivin’ Me Batty the best plan for when it is safe to exclude the colony.

One-way exclusion tubes are installed once the entry points are determined. These devices can be placed over the entry and when the bats emerge, they cannot return back to the colony. These are very effective when set up along with closing off and repairing all other possible entry points to guarantee the colony cannot return.

After the bat colony has been relocated it is best to have any guano or urine removed, cleaned and disinfected to prevent spread of disease. A mold treatment is typically in order to prevent the growth of fungus and mold which can cause a condition called Histoplasmosis.
