How Do Bats Get into Your Home?
We all love seeing Batman take on the Joker on the big screen, and while the caped crusader may be a welcome sight, a regular bat is not. Bats are nocturnal creatures, and usually will leave people alone, but sometimes they can make their way into our homes. As someone who’s been providing our bat removal services to Delaware and Maryland for years, we wanted to take some time today to talk about some of the most common ways bats can get into your house.
In Through Your Chimney
One of the easiest ways bats can get into your home is through your chimney. Chimneys should be sealed preventing small animals from entering them, but sometimes these seals fail. Bats will fly into your home through your chimney most often looking for warmth and a place to roost. If you have a bat in your chimney you need to get help from a professional Delaware bat removal company.
Holes in Your Attic
Typically, when someone calls us to remove a bat from their home, it’s in their attic. Attics are dark and provide ample roosting space, making them perfect spots for bats to call home. Even if you just have a small hole in your attic, bats and other small animals can make their way in and will attract others. If you’re hearing noises in your attic, get into contact with an experienced Delaware bat removal company.
While bats usually make their way into a home’s attic, they can also make their way into your basement or cellar. Basements/cellars are dark and sometimes damp and make great homes for bats. It can be difficult to flush out a bat from your basement without putting yourself at danger, so you’re best off getting help from a professional bat removal company in Delaware.
