When it comes to bats, it’s a good idea to call a professional for humane bat removal in Eldersbug, especially if you have a large colony of bats. How would you know? Simply walk outside after the sun goes down and watch the roof. If there are bats in your attic, you will see dozens or hundreds of them flying out from under the roof. Bats do this every day in summer, but in winter they hibernate, so they could be more difficult to spot. In any case, if you suspect bats, call Mid-Atlantic Wildlife Control, so that we can come out and investigate!
How Bats Enter Attics
Attics are perfect roosting spots for bats because they are high up, provide shade during the day and warmth during colder months. In the wild, bats live in caves and in the trees, but since in urban and suburban areas it can be hard to find suitable caves or trees, attics are the next best thing.
Maryland bats are rather small and don’t need a big entrance hole. In fact, they don’t even have to get all the way inside your attic. In warmer climates, bats can even live under the sheets of terracotta tiles between the tiles and the roof deck. In colder climates, they often roost inside attics, as well as inside the soffits.
Many homes have gaps in areas where the edge of the roof meets the fascia board. If that space is closed off, bats could also try to gain access through unscreened roof vents. Take a look at this video showing hundreds of bats flying out from underneath the roof of this house:
