Often judged by their peculiar appearance and nocturnal tendency, bats have a frightening connotation and can be shocking when swooping low over fields and properties at dusk. Bats can get into homes through impossibly small cracks, so it is absolutely essential to have an expert examine where the bats could be getting into your home. Nesting in your attic may seem innocent enough, but bats' very existence can cause expensive damage. Call Wildlife X Team® SE Michigan today at 810.534.7355 to begin the bat removal process today!
Common Bat Problems
Bats, despite their size, can cause severe damage, mostly in the form of unpleasant scents. The minimum size crack needed for them to slip into your house is roughly the diameter of a dime.
If left alone, bat problems can escalate to:
- Large deposits of guano often found in corners of attics
- Presence in attics, basements, and chimneys
- Breeding, causing many more bats to invade your home
- Bites or scratches that can lead to potentially fatal diseases
Are Bats Actually Dangerous?
Bats are not inherently dangerous, but like all wildlife animals, they are best left to their natural habitats. The relocation and removal process is also best left to professionals, as bats will bite if threatened. In order to keep colonies of bats from roosting in attics, proper precautions should be taken to cover or seal all vents, holes, chimneys, windows, and gaps leading inside houses. If you are finding signs of bat presence on your property or want to know how to get rid of bats from your attic and chimney, please call our Wildlife X Team® SE Michigan at 810.534.7355 today.
