Is it time to do something about your bat problem? Mid-Atlantic Wildlife Control can help you with bat removal in Sykesville, MD and surrounding areas. We specialize in humane wildlife removal in Carroll County and throughout Maryland, and bats are some of the nuisance wildlife we frequently deal with.
Bats most commonly roost in attics, whether it’s in a home, garage, barn or commercial property. The temperature is just right for them in an attic, and the darkness is welcome since bats are nocturnal. However, because bats are rather small and fairly quiet, they can often live in attics unnoticed for a long time, especially if it’s a vacant property.
If you want to check whether you have bats in your attic, observe your house from the outside right after the sun goes down. If you see bats coming out from under your roof, you’ve got a problem. But keep in mind that this test is valid only during the warmer months when bats are active. During winter, many bats migrate or hibernate. Hibernating bats will remain in the attic for a long time without leaving to feed. To confirm a bat problem in winter you will actually need to inspect the attic with a flashlight.
So, how do you get rid of these nuisance bats? The process is actually called bat exclusion. It relies on the bat’s feeding rituals which require the bat to leave its roosting spot every night. During the day, we cover all of their exits but one, which we fit with an exclusion device. This way the bats are able to leave but can’t enter the same hole to return to your attic. This is the most humane method of bat removal in Sykesville.
However, bat removal should only be done during certain times of year. If bats are forced outside in winter, they will most certainly starve and die. And if there are young bats in a colony that can’t fly yet, you shouldn’t seal them in. The best time to force the colony to relocate is either before babies are born or when they are old enough to fly.
Although bat exclusion may seem easy, it’s only a part of solving your bat problem. The other part has to do with cleaning your attic, which could be littered with pounds of bat guano spread all over rafters and insulation. Bat guano is not only foul-smelling, bat can also harbor dangerous fungi and bacteria. Lucky for you, we take care of bat guano cleanup when we conduct bat removal. Our technicians will also make sure to identify and close off any vulnerable areas along your roof line to prevent future bat problems.
