Bats are wonderful, misunderstood animals. Contrary to popular belief, bats are virtually harmless insectivores that avoid human contact. They keep to themselves, providing us with a free pest control service in which they feed on hundreds of mosquitoes every night. Bats are only a problem when they roost in our homes. Their guano contains bacteria, and it will damage the insulation, costing you thousands in repairs. Call us if you suspect that some bats are making themselves at home on your property. We provide comprehensive bat control services in Toronto and the surrounding area.
Bats are attracted to attics because they are warm, humid, quiet, and above ground. Walls are also highly sought after because they have stable temperatures. The walls of the home are especially popular in the summer when the attic is simply too hot. Bats may crawl up and down the walls in search of a suitable temperature, where they risk ending up inside the house. Bats are quiet, but you may hear them scratch the walls and make squeaking noises. A bat that has fallen into a wall cavity may also flap its wings. Listen carefully for these noises in the evening when the animals wake up.
How to Get Rid of Bats in the Walls
Bats get in the house by crawling through the little cracks and crevices they find on the side of the house. Gaps between the soffit overhang and the brick wall are commonly used to get inside the attic. To get rid of the bats in your home, you will need to call a licensed wildlife removal company like Bat Control. A technician can find which opening the bats are using as well as every other potential entry point. He or she will then attach a one-way door to the bats’ entry point and seal every other gap they could use in the future.
The one-way door will let the bats out safely. Once out, there will be no way back in. This is why sealing every other gap in the home’s exterior is so crucial. Moreover, it’s important that you get a professional to handle this situation because it is illegal to harm bats. The bats in your home may be in a vulnerable state, nursing their young or hibernating for the winter. Attempting to remove the bats yourself may also cause injury. Bats may bite when they are scared, and there is always the risk that they carry the rabies virus.
