See what black furry thing is flying around in your living room? Pay attention to stools that produce an unpleasant smell?...
You may have bats in the attic, chimney, basement, or any part of your house, and you need to get rid of them!
Bats have small soft bodies, which allows them to squeeze into small spaces that you may not even see. Generally speaking, bats are not evil, they are very suitable for the ecosystem.
Bats prefer to nest in the same spot every night and while they may migrate depending on the season and the region, they likely will return if you don’t take steps to prevent it in the future.
Let’s get into the process and how to get rid of bats yourself at your house.
What is the bat? Bats are one of the most misunderstood creatures in the world.
They are the second-largest group of mammals after rodents. There are 962 species in 19 families, 185 genera and genus. It is the only group of mammals that has the ability to fly.
Except for some islands in the polar regions and the ocean, they are distributed all over the world and have been well adapted to living in human homes.
Bats have good eyesight but rely on sound waves to move in the dark, this echolocation system involves reflecting sound waves back from the object, which allows them to accurately understand the size and distance of the object.
They feed on insects and only come out at night, the bat found in the home is a miniature bat.
Bats roost wherever it calls home, the habitat is always hidden and well protected. The number of a flock of bats ranges from hundreds to millions.
It breeds once a year, about 2-6 months of pregnancy, and produces one litter at a time, bat mothers who feed their cubs may have territorial awareness.
They are usually not aggressive, but if they feel threatened, they will attack with their teeth and claws.
Trust us; you don't want to risk being bitten by a bat.
Fun fact: nobody knows why bats like to hang upside down when they roost ^_^
Why did the bat come to your house? Usually, many people don't know that there are bats in their homes until they see a bat flying past them repeatedly in the living room and bedroom.
In most cases, bats have already settled in your attic or on the walls long before you start to see them flying around.
If you want to get rid of the bats that live in or near your home, you first need to understand why they came and continue to go there.
So, what attracted them to your house? Let us find out.
If there are a lot of insects in your house, please pay attention that bats may be in your garden or around bright lights in your home.
Nothing attracts bats to your residence more than a lush insect population.
2. Stillwater Sources
Bats usually look for any area with Stillwater, these water sources tend to attract insects such as mosquitoes, which are food for bats.
The fixed water source or static water source can be drains, trash cans, buckets, and anything that can hold water for a long time.
3. Fruits, food
We all know that bats like to eat insects, and some species of them are also like to eat fruits.
If you have fruits such as apples, mangoes, etc. on your land, it may be a good time to start preparing for bat control.
4. Open the window
Although uncommon, it is not impossible for bats to fly through open windows, especially when preying on insects.
This does not mean that there is a bat somewhere in your home. However, this may mean that there is one somewhere in the area, which means your home is still vulnerable to bats.
5. Safe place
Bats can be also attracted to your home because it provides them with protection and warm areas.
They are very sensitive to temperature and temperature changes, which makes the human homeland an attractive prospect.
The reality is that as long as you live in a house, especially a house close enough to the bat colony, bats will always enter.
There are too many crevices on your property, and these crevices are the starting point for you to ignore this possibility.
Why should you get rid of bats from your living areas? Although bats are essential for controlling insects in crops, you don't want them to live in your home.
The main reasons for removing bats from your home are rabies, allergies, and the risk of droppings that ultimately damage your home.
When dealing with these creatures, bat droppings or bat droppings are a serious problem.
The stool has a strong and unpleasant smell, which is not something you want to breathe every day.
Inhaling the smell of bat guano also increases the risk of infection. This infection, called histoplasmosis, is caused by a fungus in the guano of bats.
This is why professional anti-bat cleaners use respirators.
Bat urine has a very pungent smell-much like ammonia, their urine may also cause the wooden floor to become brittle.
Leptospirosis - this is a bacterial disease found in the urine of bats.
Contact with bacteria, especially open wounds, can cause fever, vomiting, liver and kidney damage, and may even be fatal.
Although this is not common, there are still a small number of bats that carry rabies. Being bitten by a bat means that you may be infected with this disease.
How to get rid of batsfrom your living areas? First, it must be pointed out that killing bats is illegal in many countries.
Bats, as pest controllers and pollinators, play a vital role in the ecosystem.
But because bats are a threat to health through the spread of potential zoonotic diseases, it is necessary to keep them away from humans.
1. Block the entry point
These animals tend to return to the places where they used to live. Once you have successfully removed the bats from your house, the first thing you should do is to prevent them from returning.
Sealing any entry point for bats into your home is the best way to do this. You can use plaster and mortar to close any gaps or cracks you find.
2. Use natural bat repellent
Contains peppermint and spearmint essential oils, which give off an odor that bats don't like. These are natural products and will not harm nearby bats, other animals, and humans.
3. Install the bait bat house
Nothing attracts them more than a better home.
4. Remove food, static water from your garden
5. Install the lights
Although it may be very expensive, the logic still works. Just as vampires can be repelled by the sun, bats can also be repelled by bright light.
6. Use mothballs
Mothballs are used as insect repellent in many households. This is mainly due to the presence of naphthalene in mothballs. This smell can repel almost any pest; even bats, which are always elusive, will run out of it.
But this also means that the smell will spread to other parts of the house, making your life uncomfortable. Long-term exposure to this smell can even cause health complications.
7. Use Alarm/ Ultrasonic/ Sprinkler Repeller
Bats live in your attic or roof because it is quiet and dark, change these conditions and it will drive the animals away.
Or by making noise with sonic, alarm, music, or even wind chimes, you can ensure that your home is suitable for any bat.
8. Use phenol
If you want to drive these bats out of your home, phenol is a very effective method. Bats are clean creatures, and they feel uncomfortable due to their strong and foul smell.
The smell of phenol makes them uncomfortable, for this reason, white phenol is particularly recommended.
Take some phenol and pour it into a spray bottle. Apply it to any area where you suspect a creature is hiding.
9. Adjust the temperature
Bats are finicky creatures in the sense that they like their habitat just so. Most species prefer temperatures ranging from 80-90 degrees Fahrenheit. Anything less or more than that facilitates bat removal from the house.
10. Call a professional
In some cases, if you feel that you cannot handle the bat problem, or it becomes difficult to deal with, it is a good idea to call a professional bat exterminator. If you don't want to take the risk of contracting the disease from inhalation or contact with bat guano, this is even recommended.
Bats are one of the main players in the ecosystem, they help us keep our balance by removing nasty insects, and also help our tropical rain forests grow through pollination and dispersion.
However, they may be the most annoying and annoying pests, and there is no place for them to live in your attic, roof, etc.
