Need bat removal in Silver Spring? Mid-Atlantic Wildlife Control is ready to come to the rescue! We provide humane bat exclusion in Silver Spring and surrounding areas, helping homeowners like you reclaim their attics and chimneys from nuisance bats. Although bats are in general good to have around for insect control, bats living in your attic, especially for a long time, can cause a lot of damage.
Bats in the attic are a serious issue that needs to be addressed right away. And because bats may use existing holes and crevices in your roof, you may not notice a bat problem immediately, unlike you would a hole that a squirrel chewed through.
The first sign of trouble is seeing bats in the sky. While this is not a bad thing, you want to make sure that these bats didn’t come from your attic. Bats are nocturnal, so the best time to go looking for them is after dusk. It may help to have a few people with you to be able to observe your roof from different angles. Gable vents, chimneys and soffits are some of the areas you may want to monitor. Just keep an eye on them and see if any bats fly out after dusk.
If you’ve confirmed that your neighborhood bats are indeed coming from your attic, there is no time to waste. Large colonies of bats living in attics for a long period of time can cause significant damage to the structure. Their guano piles up and soils the insulation. And their acidic urine breaks down the roof deck.
Unfortunately, bats won’t just leave a perfectly nice attic. You will need to hire Silver Spring bat removal professionals to conduct what we call a “bat exclusion.” The exclusion works by installing special one-way doors that will let the bats out but prevent them from entering your attic upon return. This is a humane method that forces bats to relocate without harming them. But, of course, since bats are protected by the Maryland law, it should only be done by licensed professionals and only during certain times of year.
Here is a video from our colleagues in Illinois showing what happens if bat exclusion isn’t done right:
