APPEARANCE

Instead of arms, bats have wings that stretch from their hands to their bodies. They also have thumbs used for climbing, fighting, and grasping food. Bats do not use their eyes to locate meals, and instead rely on echolocation to see in the dark. Sound bounces off objects and returns to the typically large ears of bats. Some species of bats have small, simple noses, while others resemble pig snouts.

DIET

Their diet mostly consists of insects. One of the most common bats in the United States, the little brown bat, is an opportunistic feeder that catches prey right out of the air. Other bats feed on fruit, nectar, and even some small reptiles and amphibians.

HABITAT

Where bats roost depends on the species. Some avoid heavily forested areas, preferring spaces near human habitation. They can be found in barns, attics, silos, churches, tree hollows, and on rock ledges. Species that do enjoy tree cover roost in the canopies of forests or under tree bark. We most commonly remove bats from properties in GeorgiaTexasNorth CarolinaLouisiana, and South Carolina.

TREATMENT SOLUTIONS

ENTRY INTO HOMES OR BUSINESSES

ENTRY INTO HOMES OR BUSINESSES

Bats will enter homes or yards in search of food and safe shelter. Occasionally, they will rest in the eaves of homes between meals with no intention of staying long-term. Other times, bats accidentally fly into buildings, which can induce panic and incite fear in both residents and pets.

PROBLEMS & DAMAGE

PROBLEMS & DAMAGE

Though they are mainly nuisance pests, bats can cause some damage to buildings. Collections of bat guano (feces) and urine in areas where the animals roost can lead to structural issues and the possible collapse of ceilings caused by the corrosive nature of their waste as well as health hazards as their droppings contain strains of Histoplasmosis, which affects human lungs. Bats can also carry rabies and other bacteria harmful to people. Additionally, they may host various parasites such as ticks, fleas, tapeworms, and bed bugs.

PREVENTION & EXCLUSION

PREVENTION & EXCLUSION

Bats enter homes through openings and gaps found near windows, doors, roof lines, and chimneys. In order to prevent entry, seal all holes big enough for bats to fly through with screens, caulk, or grates. Additionally, certain mechanical repellents can be useful, though their legality may vary depending on both state and federal regulations.

TRAPPING & REMOVAL

TRAPPING & REMOVAL

Large colonies of bats roosting on private properties can become problematic over time. In order to effectively and safely remove them, contact the trained pest professionals at Trutech for safe and humane bat control services. As wild animals, bats claw and bite when unqualified individuals try control without assistance. Wildlife specialists have the knowledge, tools, and training to humanely and efficiently get rid of bats from homes.
