It’s not rare that people find bats hanging upside down in the corners of their attic or flying around the house. Some bats will decide to reside in your home and breed their babies. If you’re dealing with this problem, you can call an exterminator to get rid of bats efficiently. Here are some reasons to how and why bats would come and stay in your house.
The bat season usually comes in the early summer. Baby bats are born at this time, and they are very small with a little fur. The baby bat’s mother usually goes out to feed in the evening and leave the babies alone, and these baby bats would sometimes go and explore the world on their own. Then, they’d sometimes get lost too, and end up entering your house or fall through small gaps from the roof where they’ve stopped to get a break from flying. That’s why you need to ensure there are no gaps in your ceiling and close all windows when it gets dark in the early summer.
Bats don’t see with their eyes, they see through ultrasonic waves. This is the main reason to why sometimes, bats end up flying through open windows to hunt insects. And when they get in your house, it’s very difficult for them to navigate their way back outside. They would then give up and choose to nest somewhere in your house, usually in dark corners or the attic. That’s when bats will become a problem when they nest in your house, it means you will have baby bats flying around too. To avoid this, call the nearest pest control to get rid of the bats entering your home or just keep your windows and doors closed when you are not inside the house, and it’s already dark out.
Just like all wild creatures, bats will seek warmth during cold nights. Your home probably has all these requirements, and so sometimes bats do enter your home and nest in it on purpose. And there’s no benefit in trying to make your home’s temperature colder just to get rid of the bats. All that you can do is try to drive them out once they’ve nested inside by calling in pest control. The pest control services will also tell you how you can guard your home against bats.
