Removing bats from your house is a risky undertaking because bat removals take place at heights and the chance of bodily injury can be therefore very high. This is where professionals are needed because of their professionalism and their priority for safety. They are very aware of the local laws that surround bat preservation and handling. They will conduct very detailed interior inspections to make sure that they have all the information needed to undertake a calculated and humane bat remove process with a device called the Bat Cone. The Bat Cone is a device that lets bat out while not letting them back in the property. Once removed, the technicians will then proceed to remove the Bat Cone and seal the property.
Even though they are dangerous, they do not pose a specific threat to humans, but it is the other way around. The bat species most commonly found in Ontario, namely the Small Brown Bat is on the endangered species list and enjoys a special privilege to be protected by the government. Deforestation and rapid urbanization are partially to blame for this. A devastating fungal infection is also cause named the White Nose syndrome. It is a fungus that develops around the nose of the bats and will cause the bat to perish. This makes the bat extremely sensitive to its environment.
So how do bats and where do bats get inside. As earlier mentioned before, ats will take advantage of the entry points found around the upper floors of the perimeter. These can include and are not limited to:
- Open windows and even open garage doors. This is very obvious, but many people just forget to close their windows and doors.
- Corners of the roof. An unsuspecting place but through wear and tear there can be enough space for the bat to wring itself through.
- Attic windows and vents. Attic windows are often forgotten and vents such as the soffit or even the vents under the gable can provide the bats with adequate room to proceed.
- There are gaps between the fasciae. This is a very common way for the bat to make its way inside.
The best way to prevent bats from entering the interior is by hiring a professional bat removal technician that has experience with removing bats and know where to look. Call our customer service representatives to book your next appointment!
