Bats are not only an important part of the ecosystem and environment, but they are also an incredibly unique wildlife species. They often become a problem for homeowners when they decide to roost or build a nursing colony in an attic or another section of a building or home. The first reaction to this is to usually want to evict the little critters from one’s home. This is a good idea, as insects, odor and health problems can arise because of accumulations of their droppings. Your safest bet is to contact animal control professionals like Minnesota Wild Animal Management to help you with getting these animals from your home.
How Bats Become Problematic In The Home
The situation with most bat infestations is that they will typically use people’s attics for years before the odor from their droppings alerts homeowners to their presence. This happens because bats are very quiet animals for the most part and because they are nocturnal. Seeing one bat flying inside your home means there is a very small chance it might have entered through an open window or door. This could be dismissed as a one-off event. On the other hand, multiple bats flying around your house means that you probably have a colony living inside your walls or attic. Bat droppings can cause health hazards, which means you need the assistance of a professional pest control service to get rid of them effectively.
Bats Give Birth During Early Summer Months
Early summer is when baby bats are typically born; they have little fur and are very small. Once they become mobile in late summer, they tend to get lost more often than adult bats. The problem with baby bats is that they tend to go exploring when their mothers go out to feed in the evening. This often results in them becoming lost in the walls and ultimately emerging in living areas, as they make their way out through cold air returns, openings in walls or unfinished basements.
If your house is currently under attack by bats, it is wise to call a professional. It is very important that proper inspection techniques and exclusion methods be utilized. If not, you could end up with numerous adults and/or young bats being closed in your walls, eves, or attic.
