How to Get Rid of Bats in Your Home

Bat

Your dark attic is a real attractive place for bats to roost and create into a colony. Nah. Don’t think Batman. Batman’s bats roosted in a cave beneath his mansion, not in an attic of a three bedroom home in the suburbia.

Bats can get in through the small openings and gaps in your home so your best bet is to seal them by applying caulk, weatherstrips, or screens. Just leave one possible opening so that the bats can leave your home as night strikes. Seal the opening a half an hour after dark. If you can’t possibly seal of small opening without remodeling your home, try shining a light at their roosting are by installing a bright light. Another trick is to hang mothballs in porous bags (another use for old stretchy stockings) to ward them off.

If, by any chance, a bat finds itself in your home after dark, here’s a neat trick: open all the possible exits points it can have (windows and doors) and turn off all the light inside your home. The bat will most likely fly out.

    Ace Hardware stores sell a guaranteed electronic bat repeller for about $49 called Transonic PRO? It actually says it’s for bats, rodents, spiders, fleas, ticks & other insects!

    How do I know if I have bats in my attic. What kind of noise do they make, either when leaving in the evening or returning in the morning.

    We’ve been trying to get rid of the bats in our roof for two years now. We’ve tried shining a spotlight at the entrance. We tried caulking up the exit after they left at night but the caulk didn’t dry fast enough and they chewed right through it. We tried lining the landing strip with contact paper thinking maybe they would stick, but that didn’t work either. My husband came up with the idea of lining a 3 X 3 piece of cardboard with flypaper strips. We caught five bats the first night we tried it and seven bats the next night. We’re hoping to try again this weekend. I’m not sure how long it will take because we have no idea how many are up there.

    I have bats in my attic . I was just wondering if that netting that Dodson will put over my opening of the aframe will work?

  • Marnie says:

    yah, this would work wonderfully if it weren’t for the fact that i’m deathly afraid of that little thing flying at me while trying to do that
