Bats can certainly be annoying, and possibly dangerous, pests particularly if they take up residence in or outside of your home. The most frequent complaints from homeowners regarding bats are:
- They are living in the attic or chimney
- They are swarming around the house
- There is a foul odor due to bat droppings
- There is a loose bat stuck somewhere inside the house
If you have bats in your home, you will probably want to have them removed by a professional as soon as possible.
Getting Rid of Bats in Your House
First, you need to identify where and how bats are getting into your home. Your home will need to be fully inspected. Bats can enter through a crack or a hole that is as small as 3/8 of an inch. Also, the species of bat needs to be identified. Different bat species have different birthing and hibernating seasons so it is important to identify the type of bat that is in your home. Once you have identified the bats, you can then start the process of bat exclusion. This is when they gradually fly out of the house but they are not allowed to fly back in. This can be accomplished with the use of nets and other equipment. Do not attempt to trap the bats, and you certainly should not kill them, as that is unlawful in Georgia.
