The Potomac area is a quaint residential and commercial area found in Montgomery County, Maryland. While this area is perfect for owning a home, it is also the perfect home for bats. Because of the increasing population of bats in the Potomac area, residents are finding the need for bat removal services. As the weather continues to grow colder, bats will continue to search for places to take shelter. The Potomac area still provides some natural shelter for bats, but also provides plenty of residential homes for bats to use for shelter as well. Bats tend to enter your Potomac home through openings they find along your siding, in your roof tiles, and in your basement. They can also use vent and chimney openings to enter your home to roost. When you begin to hear activity coming from areas of your home, you are more than likely hosting an uninvited bat.
