If you live within the Chevy Chase area, you know that wildlife is a common find throughout the area. While most of the wildlife never causes an immediate issue for Chevy Chase residents, some creatures can cause quite the stir for Chevy Chase residents. When bats decide to call your Chevy Chase attic or basement their home, consider bat removal services through Mid Atlantic Wildlife Control. Bats may seem like small and harmless creatures, and for the most part they are. Bats are not commonly known to attack domestic pets or humans, although there is a common misconception surrounding this fact. However, bats can cause serious damage to a home should they find their way inside. Once inside, homeowners believe that bat removal will be easy and a professional is unnecessary. However, bat removal can become quite tricky and should only be conducted by train professionals and technicians. Bats can find their way into your Chevy Chase home through a number of different ways, many of which can be prevented by simple steps. Some of these steps include:
- Install a chimney cap to prevent bats from entering your chimney.
- Use mesh coverings to protect your ventilation systems throughout your home. Bats are able to enter your Chevy Chase home through laundry vents, kitchen vents, and bathrooms vents.
- Never leave standing food and water outdoors for long periods of time. This can attract insects, which will then attract bats.
- Check your attic, roof, and siding for open gaps and cracks that bats can use to enter your home.
