Imagine. As you’re lying in bed at night, or maybe just getting ready for bed, you see something flying across the room and you have no idea if it’s real. Once the animal stops moving, and you get closer you can easily see it’s a bat in your home. So, now what? Here’s what you need to know about getting bats out of your home and keeping them out.
Are bats dangerous?
The good news is that bats are not dangerous creatures; they might seem like they are scary, but they aren’t aggressive animals, so you don’t need to worry about attacks against you or your family. They are more likely to fear you more than you do them.
The bad news is that their urine and feces can pose serious health concerns and risks, so having that in your home could be dangerous. Getting them out as soon as possible is essential.
How soon can I get rid of these bats?
In some areas, bats are considered a protected species so it’s against the law to kill them. Check with your local laws to determine if this applies to your area. Once you’ve researched the laws, now you can act to calling in a team of professionals to clean up the area.
You’ll also want to make sure that you permanently seal the areas you installed the one-way doors. Only do this once you’re sure the area is no longer toxic and has aired out.
While bats are harmless, really, to you and your family they can be a nuisance. Once the bats leave, be sure to seal up any holes, so this isn’t an ongoing problem for you.
