Attics

There are some spaces that bats favor over the other and one of these spaces happens to be isolated from the rest of the house, namely the attic. The reason why the attic remains such a perfect spot for bats is that they need two basic requirements. Shelter and seclusion. This is because bats are classified as nocturnal animals who are active at night but inactive by day. The shelter seems to be the perfect combination of the two considering that the attic is rarely visited. The relative stable temperatures during extreme heat or cold make it a perfect shelter away from predators to rear their young.

Walls

Bats can also choose unconventional spots to remain tucked away from humans. In most cases, however, this is not intentional. Younger bats, who can’t fly often find themselves stuck in between the narrow openings. To free them, specialists are needed with protective gear as they might or attack.

Pipes

Every outward-facing point can be exploited by bats and other wildlife animals such as raccoons and squirrels, and this also applies to ventilation pipes and vents placed on the side of the walls and other roofs.

Inspection

To understand the situation that our customers are in, we conduct an exterior inspection as well as an interior inspection when needed. This allows us to determine the exact location of the entry points that the bats use to get inside the property and effectively seal it. In most cases, bats will use one entry point to enter and exit the property. The technician will also make notes of additional weak points and will relay this information to the homeowner.

The Bat Cone

The technician will seal all the other entry points located during the initial inspection. After the main entry point is located, the technician will mount a cone-like device angled at a downward angle. Once the bat passes through the cone, it makes it impossible for the bat to re-enter due to the hard plastic material. The bat will then leave the area for good.

Exclusion

After it is determined that the bats vacated the property, the technicians will begin with the last step in the process, the exclusion. The One-Way-Door will be removed and the entry point will be sealed with flashing made out of enforced aluminum plates. This prevents other wildlife animals such as raccoons or squirrels from coming in and taking advantage of the weak spot.

Big Brown Bat

The Big Brown Bat is a protected species in Ontario. They can be recognized by their golden- brown fur, black wings, their short snout, and their pointy long ears. They grow up to about 13cm in length. They eat a steady diet of mostly insects like mealworms, cockroaches, beetles, and flies. The Big Brown Bat is a nocturnal creature meaning that it is inactive during the day and active during the night. One of the signs during nighttime can be rustles, screeches, and thumps indicating that they are active. The bats are often found in colonies and generally pose no threat. They hibernate during the colder months in the winter and give birth around spring. It is important to note that they cannot be removed from homes during specific times of the month. Call our customer service for more information.

Small Brown Bat

Just like its other counterpart, the Small Brown Bat is also a protected bat species in Ontario thus has certain limitations as to how and when to remove it. The Small Brown Bat can be recognized by its short snout golden brown-reddish fur, black wings, and pointy long ears just like the Big Brown Bat. Although very similar in appearance, the Small Brown Bat just as the name implies is smaller in size and can measure up to 9 cm in length. It is also nocturnal and survives on a diet of various insects as well.

The Problem With Bats

Bat Odour

When bats are enclosed in a confined space they can generate incredible foul odours that can be smelled all the way to the lower levels of the property. Most of the smells are due to the bat poop and urine left behind there. The space needs special treatment to get rid of the bat odour through deodorization. Bat poop or formally Bat “guano” is a very serious issue after a long infestation. Specialized equipment is needed to remove and discard the bat poop safely. It is strongly recommended not to clean the feces up yourself due to a high chance of contamination. Our team wears special protective gear to protect themselves and others from contamination.

Property Damage

Bats do not seem to do much other than hang around but do not be fooled. These bats do enough damage behind closed doors that their combined damages can easily rack up to a couple of thousand dollars. Bats can cause materials to deteriorate, insolation to be useless, and items to be unusable.

Health Concerns

Bats carry an alarming amount of transferable diseases including rabies. People can fall ill through direct and direct exposure with their faces. On top of that, the fumes that can be released from their feces and urine can be a dangerous concoction when it sits there virtually on days or even weeks at a time without any circulation.

Bat Concerns

Bats can be incredibly vicious animals and all do about anything to defend and protect their newly-found territory. When you do hear suspicious noises coming from the attic or from the shed, make sure your children and pets are out of reach. Do not attempt to free them by opening up a window or door. Instead, call a licensed reputable bat removal company like Bat Control Stouffville.
