While bats are most known for living in caves and dark creepy houses, they can also take up residence in your attic. The dark and often unused space is perfect for bats, who just want a quiet place to sleep during the day. Bats are nocturnal creatures that feed mostly on insects like mosquitoes, making them wonderful to have around during the summer months. However, you may not want bats getting comfortable INSIDE of your home. As with any wild animals, there are certain risks that come hand in hand with bats moving into your attic.
Since bats are silent creatures, you often won’t hear them moving around too much in your walls unlike other animals. If you do hear them, it would often only be when they are leaving and coming back, or if you slam a door in the house. The only sound you would hear would be a slight rustling. The best way to identify a bat issue is to actually SEE the bats, often you can do this by sitting outside around dusk (when the bats would be leaving for the night) and seeing if you can spot any bats flying out of an area.
If you are experiencing a bat issue, you will want to contact a wildlife removal specialist immediately. It is very tricky to get rid of bats, and the help of a professional is often needed to remedy the problem quickly.
