Best Options for Repelling and Removing Bats

Home Improvement

Bats are generally harmless creatures, but they're not exactly a desirable house guest. If you find that you have bats roosting in your attic, shed, or any other area of your home, it's important that you properly remove them and then bat-proof the area. This article will provide some guidelines for doing this. However, it is strongly advised that you enlist professional bat removal in Salem to help you out.

Repellent Options

There are many articles out there that will tell you about special DIY bat repellents to chase the bats out of your home. Some stores will even sell commercial-grade bat repellents. Here are the pros and cons of some of these options:

  1. Moth ballsMany people have reported success at repelling bats from an area using moth balls. The scent may be what does the trick. However, the proven effectiveness of this method is low, and likely won't last for long.
  2. Lights and noiseThe idea that bright lights and loud noises would repel bats may seem like a pretty logical one. After all, it's well known that bats like the dark, and ultrasonic sound emitters can disorient and confuse bats. However, when bats have found a good roosting place, they will often find ways around such obstacles (or simply ignore them altogether) in order to get back home. While you may be able to temporarily keep them away, eventually, they will come to roost again.
  3. Commercial repellentsThe effectiveness of commercial-grade repellents is questionable at best. Many people have reported that these repellents don't drive bats away at all, so they're likely not worth your money.

So if none of the generally recommended means of repelling bats are effective, then what option do you have? Poisoning and killing the animals is out of the question, as it is illegal throughout most of the country, and trapping them to release elsewhere can be dangerous for you and the bats. Plus, as has already been mentioned, bats tend to find a way back to their roosting spot eventually.

In the end, your best option for getting the bats out of your house is to simply wait until nightfall, when they will all leave to feed. When they have left your home, you can move on to the next step.

Bat-Proofing Your Home

As soon as all the bats have left their nesting area in your home, you need to seal off whatever entrances they've been using. It's important that you find all of these entrances to ensure that you don't allow any bats back into your home. The best way to pinpoint these entrances is to watch the outside of your home at nightfall to see where the bats are coming out. Then, once they've all left, you can climb up there and seal off the entrance with whatever materials are appropriate for the area.

You may not get every entrance the very first time you try to bat-proof your home. There may be multiple ways that the bats are getting in, so just keep an eye on the place where they roost to see if they come back. If they do, repeat the process above until you have sealed off every entrance.

The bats may hang around your house for a little while afterwards, trying to find a way inside, but eventually they will move on to find another roosting place.

When getting rid of bats, thoroughness is key. The last thing you want to do is accidentally seal a bat inside your home, so you need to make sure that every bat is gone before beginning to bat-proof your house. Hiring professional bat removal in Salem can ensure that this is done properly.
