The following are some common bat questions that our customers ask us:
I have been told that bats will leave my attic on their own after 6 – 8 weeks. Is that true?
No. In fact, bats may hibernate through the winter in a tight space in your attic or within the walls or crawlspaces of your home. The only way to ensure they are permanently excluded is to use humane removal techniques and to install professional bat proofing.
I’ve been told that you have to catch the bats and relocate them far away from your house otherwise they will get back in. Is that true?
No. Following our humane removal procedure, we install professional bat proofing in all possible entry points. The bats will not be able to get back in – we guarantee it! In fact, if a bat does manage to chew back into your home, we will return and complete the process again for free.
How do I know if I have bats in my home or building?
Bats are often associated with strong smells and large accumulations of droppings. If you think you have bats in your home, you should consult a wildlife specialist because there are some serious health risks associated with bats and their feces/urine.
