How to get bats out of the attic
So, You have bats in your attic…..what do you do now? They cause
extensive amounts of damage with scratching, chattering and piles of
guano. They leave a horrible mess of feces. . They roost in large
colonies, and if they have pups you can t move them.
To get rid bats in the attic, you need to follow a simple series of
steps. Find out how the bats are getting in. Bats can fit through a
space as small as 3/8 inch wide, so don’t overlook any crack or
crevice! Inspect the whole roof structure, ridge row and eaves
thoroughly. If you familiarize yourself with bat’s habits It will
help you know what signs to look for. Bat holes will have a large
concentration of black greasy residue around them.
You now know where the bats are roosting, and how they are getting
in. You have determined if there are pups. You now have to decide
their fate. Do you want to make them just leave? Do you want to kill
them? Each of these choices has its own results. If you kill them,
how do you do it, what do you do with the carcasses? Is that even
legal in your area? If you make them leave, how do you keep them
out, and where do they go? Once you have found all the holes and you
have decided how to handle your infestation, you can look at
options. If you decided to kill them, You could block all the holes
to the attic at once and use poison. While this is possible, it’s
not a very good choice.
Even if you don’t mind cleaning up the carcasses, this could take
several days. In cleaning up you could miss one or two bodies, and
you have to deal with residual poison left in your home. If you just
want them to leave, Exclusion tunnels are a simple and versatile
choice to get rid of the bats in your attic. They are even easy for
you build or install, yourself with a few simple tools, a little
time, and a few materials. With this method you would seal all but
the busiest bat hole. The large end of the funnel is placed over
that central whole the bat s use regularly. Exclusion funnels allow
the bat to exit through its bat hole to the outside, but not be able
to get back in. This is an effective way to force the bat to go
elsewhere. After you are sure all the bat s have exited, remove the
funnel, and seal up the final hole.
