What property modifications will keep down bat populations?
Bats can search for shelter in walls, attics, chimneys as well as
any other appropriate areas just like all wildlife animals. One
surprising thing with bats is that they are capable of squeezing
through thin cracks and slits in addition, the lesser species only
require an opening of ½ inch and most of the time when homeowners
find out bats in the attic, they panic and feel that it's a disaster
that requires instant attention and the truth is that they might
have been living with bats for an extended period.
Before getting rid of bats, think about partitioning them off from
places where they are more likely to be in contact with human beings
and also allow them to settle somewhere else within the structure
since an active partition can be made from building wooden battens
as well plastic sheeting.
However, the safest and best way to eliminate bats is actually to
exclude them. The best way to remove bats in a way that it's safe to
both bats and humans is to exclude them. Though in old buildings it
might not be a simple task to get rid bats completely because it has
many entry points therefore in such a case you need to inform
wildlife damage control Company who are well experienced in removing
or relocating bats.
Build Bats Out
After ensuring that bats are no longer roosting in the attics as
well as any other areas, then seal off every possible entry holes
and if it's possible to try and enter the attic in the day times as
you look for light shining through holes and cracks as well.
Furthermore, you may also put in a piece of fiberglass padding or
rather a bit of stick in those same holes to blot them to be fixed
from the outside.
In addition to the above try as much as possible to lock off the big
openings with wood, aluminum flashing and also mesh hardware cloth
and make sure to replace all the loose boards along with roofing
Install Exclusion Devices
Before the bats give birth and after the young bats are able to fly,
try and discover the exits that bats use plus closing all entry
holes only on condition that you use the technique described above
which is excluding bats through shutting one existing entry using
mechanisms that will allow the bats to vacate the building while on
the other hand prevent them from reentering.
