Let us Talk About Bats Since Bat Season is Here!
Bats make habitat of a person’s property to feed on flying insects. Mosquitos, stinkbugs, and moths are popular bugs within a bat’s diet. They also are drawn to properties that have less sound. More sound means more interference with their echolocation. They use echolocation to find food/flying insects since they are blind. Bats are most often found in a person’s attic, cellar, or walls; they are able to enter through the smallest of cracks/crevices.
If a bat finds its way into a common living space within your home, here are a few things to remember:
-Bats fly in a U shape, generally.
-They will try to cling to any bars of ledges in the room (curtain rods).
-Try to avoid being bit, they do carry rabbis on occasion.
-They fly from mid room height to ceiling height.
-They are handled best with leather material gloves.
-Once they are on the ground, they cannot take flight.
Seek medical attention immediately if a bat bites you, to reiterate, as they may carry rabies.
To avoid the presence of bats in your home, do these things:
-Treat for flying bugs/insects with a repelling application or via professional pest control services.
-Have a professional pest control services evaluate your home for entry point vulnerabilities and allow the pest control company to seal those entry points.
-Consider purchasing an echolocation disrupting device if you live in a quiet area.
