How to Get Rid of Bats in my House

March 7th, 2018

There is nothing more disturbing than discovering you have bats roosting in your attic or other areas of your home uninhabited by humans. Whether you hear them rustling throughout the night, or have encountered one that has mistakenly found entrance into your home, you want nothing more to have them gone and not a moment too soon. You Google, “How to get rid of bats in my house,” and a list of “do it yourself” solutions flood your page. You’re bombarded with information. You are not a biologist, you do not know your local wildlife laws, you are not a carpenter, and now you’re scared of contacting some zoonotic disease. Its now approaching midnight and you stumble back to bed ready to tackle the situation in the morning. Morning comes too soon because you had a restless nights sleep and you start reading about mothballs, mylar balloons, strobe lights, essential oils, and much much more. Unfortunately, as creative as the do it yourselfers get, they are very wrong when it comes to ridding your home of bats. The only way to effectively, and legally exclude bats from your home is to hire a seasoned professional even if you consider yourself more than handy. Tri State Wildlife is your go to company for all of your wildlife exclusion needs 859-635-0037.

The number one reason to hire a professional for getting rid of bats is peace of mind. Tri-State Wildlife’s technicians are thoroughly trained in bat eviction/venting procedures and educate their customers regarding the best solution to rid their property of a bat invasion. The process starts with a detailed inspection of the property designed to identify structural defects, as well as current and potential bat entry points that lead into the interiors of the structure. Even if you know where the bats are entering most bat colonies have multiple entrances into your home as well as areas that could easily be established as an entrance. The inspection is intended to assist in the evaluation of the overall bat colony within the building and offer our clients the best possible approach. In addition, to our detailed inspection Tri State Wildlife is more than happy to help put our customers minds at ease.

In addition to removal/exclusion services, Tri-State Wildlife also offers full and partial attic cleanouts. Tri State Wildlife employees are trained in safe and effective methods of removing bat guano and contaminated insulation. Due to the risk of exposure to diseases such as histoplasmosis proper protective gear and equipment is vital to a safe and effective cleanout.

If you or someone you know is experiencing a problem with bats in their home or structure give Tri State Wildlife a call today, 859-635-0037. Late winter/early spring is a great time to get started on the bat eviction process.

Despite their usefulness, discovering or even suspecting bats living in your home or business is unsettling. Two common bat problems in the Greater Cincinnati Northern Kentucky area include a solitary bat accidentally entering the living space of a structure and bats roosting in the attics or chimneys of homes or building. Signs that bats may be living in a structure include seeing bats going in/out of the building, and the presence of bat droppings (guano).

Tri-State Wildlife Management – Protecting You, Your Property, and Your Investment

Wildlife Removal Independence, KY: The weather has certainly turned much colder this week, so wild animals in Independence, KY and other neighborhoods in the greater Cincinnati area are taking advantage of the warmth that attics of homes and businesses offer. The main 3 culprits of attic-dwelling wildlife include raccoons, squirrels, and bats.

Raccoons are unpleasant house “guests”, since they not only tear apart your home to seek entry, but also they create smelly, unsanitary latrines in your attic insulation. Squirrels are also bad house “guests”, as they will chew entryways and gnaw on EVERYTHING in your attic, including rafters and electrical wires! Of course this is a major hazard, as chewed rafters can weaken the entire structure and chewed electrical wires can start a fire. If you have bats in your attic, you may not sense their presence until the spring, as they’re beginning to hibernate, but they also create unsanitary latrines and and can carry rabies, both important reasons to keep them out of your house. Squirrels and raccoons will stay active throughout the winter, the only exception being if there is a long bout of extreme weather.

All three of these wild animals are prevalent in Independence, KY as well as the rest of Northern Kentucky, Cincinnati, and Southeast Indiana. As Independence grows in human population, more neighborhoods and homes are built, while less natural habitat is available to wildlife. It’s a common misconception that wild animals suffer from neighborhood developments, while the truth is that houses and other man-made structures are much more comfortable habitats for wildlife. Of course, this is to the displeasure of the unfortunate businesses and homeowners who happen to be targeted by wildlife.  Bats, squirrels, and raccoons all take advantage of these man-made structures, especially during the colder months. They are much more comfortable spending their time in warm attic insulation as opposed to den or roost sites in nature.

There are measures that businesses and homeowners in Independence, KY can take to deter wildlife from seeking refuge in their building or home. First, habitat modification, such as keeping landscaping tidy, trees trimmed, and garbage cans and pet food inside can go a long way in keeping wildlife disinterested in your home. Unfortunately, though, with wildlife, there are never any guarantees. You may do everything right, and raccoons, squirrels, and bats may still target your home. Another measure businesses and homeowners can take to try and prevent wildlife entry is to have a wildlife home inspection.

Tri-State Wildlife Management offers thorough, affordable home inspections. You may choose to do this as a precautionary measure, or you may already suspect something has already taken up residence in your attic or home. Tri-State Wildlife Management’s technician / carpenter who performs the inspection, will identify any wildlife entries as well as weak, vulnerable areas that could become future entries. It may seem excessive to a business or homeowner that the vulnerable areas be identified, but it is actually very important; raccoons, squirrels, and bats will all attempt, usually successfully, to reenter a home even after their entry is repaired.

Once an inspection is performed on your home, Tri-State Wildlife Management will be able to tell you whether your home, as of the date of the inspection, is low risk for wildlife entry, or if there is evidence of wildlife entry or vulnerable areas. If there is evidence of wildlife entry, TSWM will suggest a removal and exclusion plan suited to fit your individual needs. As mentioned previously, wildlife will cause damage to your home once excluded if they are not removed from the area, so an exclusion only solution is really no solution at all. TSWM has a carpenter on staff that will repair areas on your home that are being used as entry points, and areas that may be susceptible to future wildlife entry. TSWM only uses wildlife grade construction materials to further deter wildlife from reentering your home. In addition, TSWM offers a variety of wildlife grade chimney caps and covers to prevent wildlife intrusion. Another common wildlife service offered by Tri-State Wildlife Management is attic clean-ups, which are usually performed when an attic has significant raccoon or bat latrines.

TSWM prides itself in being a professional, quality, full service company that will take care of you from the first phone call until your wildlife problem is solved. Call today to schedule your affordable home inspection.
