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.

Property Modifications

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 equipment.

Install Exclusion Devices
