Do not let bats infest your attic. It’s important to know the 10 signs of a bat infestation and to take action immediately if you find you have one. Bats are known to carry diseases which can be fatal to humans and other animals, and their droppings contain the same.

Below are the top 10 signs of a bat infestation followed by a plan of action for those who believe they actually have one.

1. You see a bat in your house: This is one of the most obvious signs bats are living in your attic. Of course there could be that rare time that a random bat from the outside flies through your window and hopefully out of another one, but in this case, chances are, the bat was trying to get to its brew with the other bats or has squeezed through a hole in your attic and has come into the common area. If you see a bat flying around your home or even perched somewhere you’ve probably got an infestation and need to call the professionals.

2. Bat droppings (guano): Bat droppings aren’t hard to see. If you have an infestation you’ll usually see droppings on the outside outside of your home near their entry point. Home owners usually find them on porches, decks, window sills and virtually anywhere near their entry point.

3. Bat droppings in the attic: If you’ve paid a visit to your attic and have found what looks like animal droppings, you may have a potential infestation. In this case, you could have more than a bat problem as you won’t be able to identify which animal the droppings may have come from but if you are seeing some of the other signs in this list, you could have a bat problem. Read on.

4. High pitched squeaking sounds: Bats make various high pitched sounds to communicate and help themselves navigate their paths through the night. Of course hearing the sounds of bats around your home in the evening and night time doesn’t necessarily mean you have an infestation, but if this sign and other signs in this list are apparent you could have a problem to content with.

5. Scratching in the walls: Scratching or scurrying in the walls of your home can be a sign that any wild animal is living in your walls or attic, but combined with the other signs in this list, the problem can be narrowed down to a bat problem. Continue reading.

6. Brown or black stains around holes: Bats have a layer of grease on their coats and so wherever they are exiting or entering a home, they tend to leave greasy spots at those locations. If you were to perform a do-it-yourself inspection, and do find areas where there seems to be black smears around holes on your roof or the outside walls, you can almost guarantee bats are living in your attic. Note, these stains can be cleaned up but the area has to be sterilized.

7. Seeing dead bats around property: Like the other points, the sign isn’t always going to be an indicator that you’ve got an infestation, but generally speaking a dead bat on your property (or even in your home) isn’t a good sign. A dead bat usually means other bats are in the area and that you should definitely check out your home’s surroundings to make sure. A dead bat combined with the other signs in this list points to an existing infestation and the professionals need to be called just to make sure and to do an inspection.

8. Attic strange pungent odour: Strange and pungent odours coming from your attic are definitely a sign that some form of wildlife are living in your attic but in order to be sure it’s a bat, you need to take the other signs in this list into consideration. The small and odours may signify an animal infestation of any kind so it’s important to call the professionals who will determine the exact nature of the problem.

9. Smells like ammonia: If you smell a strong odour of ammonia, chances are you have a pile of bat guano somewhere near or inside your home. Guano (droppings) produces an almost toxic odour that’s similar to ammonia and a definite sign bats are somewhere near. Like most of the signs above, guano around the home isn’t necessarily a sign, but if you see it in your attic then you know you need to call someone.

10. You witness bats leaving your attic at sun-down: Bats sleep during the day and fly at night. They can usually be seen leaving a home they’ve setup roost in just around the time of sun-down. Unlike the signs above, seeing bats leaving your home’s attic in the evening is enough of a sign to not only give you the heebie-jeebies but it’s well enough evidence of an infestation.

3 Signs That Bats are Living in Your Home

brmc•You’ve Found a Bat in Your Home

Bat colonies tend to roost in places that are up high like an attic. But, occasionally a bat will follow a wall cavity or pipe looking for space to sleep as well.

•You’ve Heard Bats Fluttering in Your Walls

Bats tend to be very quiet mammals. They are nocturnal but leave their roost at night to feed. You will probably only hear bats if they are living in your walls and they get disturbed by a slamming door or some other loud noise. Bats make small squeaking noises and you may hear them crawling (sounds like scratching) at dusk and dawn when they are waking or returning to the roost.

•You’ve Seen Bat Droppings on Your Walls or Windowsills.

Bat guano sticks to walls and windows. Bats are creatures of habit. They roost together in the the same place year after year. And one other thing you can count on is that bats will leave guano droppings on the entrance to their roost area every night. These droppings may accumulate on a wall, windowsill, or porch, or other place directly below the place where the bats are entering your home.

Guano resembles mouse droppings only larger. Inspect your attic windows for visible droppings and be on the look out for any obvious openings in the exterior where bats are getting in and out. It will probably be up high, but if the bat colony is large, it’ll be hard to miss the guano. source: getbatsout.com

Are Bats Living In My House?

brmcThere are a few clues to look for in determining if bats are living in your house.

1. If you have had two or more encounters with bats flying around your house within one calendar year, then you probably have bat droppings in middle of attic bats.

2. If you find piles of mouse like fecal material in your attic or on the ground outside your house, then you probably have bats. (Bats defecate before they enter your home and below where they roost for the day see photo)bat droppings bat guano Make sure that the fecal material is not old by laying down a piece of newspaper and see if any more droppings fall on the paper. If there is, you have bats. (Just a word of caution about droppings. They can carry a fungus known to cause Histoplasmosis. Don’t breathe the feces and avoid contact with them. Ideally, you should wear a HEPA filter mask and spray the fecal material down with 10% bleach solution).

You can distinguish between bat droppings and mouse droppings in two ways. First, bat droppings tend to be clustered as they will pile up below where the bat is roosting. Second, bat droppings will have a shiny speckled appearance (from all the insect wings) and will crumble like dust when touched. Mouse droppings on the other hand, tend to be scattered about and become hard when dry.

3. You see bats flying around your dark house constantly and even see them disappear. Performing a bat watch at dusk is an ideal way of determining if you have bats. While it is not one hundred percent accurate, it is still worth doing. Perform a bat watch by having people stand by your house at dusk till dark. They should be positioned to see as much of the house as possible. The first person to see a bat should shout out. If you have trouble identifying the specific hole, concentrate on the side of the house where the first person saw the bat. Only perform bat watches on non-rainy nights.

4. If you have a bat flying in your home during the winter time, then you can be certain bats are living in your home as they have decided to hibernate there. Warning: Be sure to follow the rabies protocols in your state. source: icwdm.org

There are several ways to get rid of bats in an attic. If there are just a few bats, and it appears that there is no colony present or if there is a solitary bat in the attic, they can be physically removed by a trained professional who has proper protective equipment.

There are several different approaches to remedying a bat infestation in an attic. However, it is important to note that many states have laws or regulations that address bat control and which provide specific requirements and protections for these animals. It is important to avoid using any home remedies to control bats, including those which involve mixing chemicals.

If you encounter such a problem, it is highly recommended that you contact a bat control professional in Macomb County, MI who is trained in bat removal.

If there is a bat colony in the attic, it is best to exclude the bats from returning. Some social bats develop maternity colonies, or colonies of females gathered to have their young. The young are dependent on their mothers for some time. No colony should be excluded from return until the young are capable of flying. Prior to this, the adults return each morning and feed the young. Restricting access of the females to the young will prevent feeding of the young and they will die. Check the local bat species to determine when it is safe to exclude the colony. Usually state universities will have sections of their websites dedicated to locally found bats and when the young are reared.

When exclusion work is to be done, observing the structure at dusk will give an indication as to the entry and exit points. After the bats have left, the holes can be sealed. Check inside during the day and look for daylight after sealing. Also check for air currents which may disclose other access points.

One-way tubes, cones or other devices can be installed when the entry point is found. These devices can be placed over the entry and when the bats emerge, they cannot return back to the colony. These are very effective. Some people prefer to place bat houses nearby but the likelihood of the displaced bats roosting there is limited.

After the bats are removed, it is best to clean up any guano or urine to prevent spread of disease. Always use personal protection when cleaning up guano or urine. source: orkin.com
