How To Know If You Have A Bat Infestation In Your Home/Attic
Are Bats Flying Around or Near You House?
One of the first telltale signs of a bat infestation within your home is if you see a bat flying inside your house. However, this is sometimes a one-off and they may have simply flown through an open window.
If this becomes a frequent occurrence however, it could mean there are more living within your walls or in your attic. As they are nocturnal animals, head out at dusk to see if there are any bats flying around your home.
If you see a group of them and they seem to be getting into your house, it’s time to call a bat control service. Remember to keep your distance in the meantime as over 50% of bats carry rabies, among other infectious diseases.
Foul Smells or Signs of Bat Droppings
If you start to notice droppings in your attic or outside your home, it could be an indication that there are bats residing in your property.
Bat droppings and urine carry a foul smell that can’t go unnoticed. Also known as guano, bat feces can be incredibly dangerous and carry many diseases or bacteria causing infections in humans.
It’s best to keep your distance if you notice any kind of animal droppings and make sure you don’t touch them!
If you are lying in bed at night and notice strange noises coming from your attic (that sounds like high pitched whining), it could be a sign of bats.
There are other types of wild animal invaders that are also active at night. The sounds you hear are the biggest differentiator. Squeaks are generally rats or mice whereas thumps and louder noises are likely from raccoons.
Bat noises are quite distinct compared to these other types of animals. Combined with the nocturnal activity, if you hear flying or flapping wings, then you can safely presume bats are the likely culprit.
How do Bats Enter a Property?
Bats can gain access to your home by crawling through gaps between the roof and the wall, through cracks in the roof shingles and through gaps in bricks.
Similar to other animals, bats choose to live within your home or attic as they are drawn to warm temperatures. Your attic is not only cozy to them, but it also offers protection from potential predators.
