Trapping Bats

With extremely elongated fingers and a wing membrane stretched between, the bat’s wing anatomically resembles the human hand. There are almost 1,000 bat species worldwide and are nature's natural pest control.

To survive the winter bats hunker down and hibernate, which really is not an issue in the wild but when they colonize in buildings they can quickly roost and become a huge problem. Bats can carry rabies and a whole host of other diseases. Here are some tips to capturing them.

1) Observe your house at dusk to see exactly where the bats are flying out. 2) Carefully inspect the house for entry holes bats can get in holes as little as 3/8 an inch 3) When inspecting the house look for other entryway's and seal them with caulk 4) When you find the entryway in which bats are coming in install one-way exclusion such as netting or other devices. Your local home improvement professional should be able to help you. 5) Wait at least 24 hours and see if bats are still present in the area. 6) Once all bats are gone, remove the exclusion devices and seal the holes. 7) Make sure to throughly clean up droppings left by the bats
