Decatur wildlife control Tip of the Month:

What Do I Need to Exclude a Bat from Getting into My Home?
Bats can be hideous little critters. This is especially true when you are finding that they are inside your attic, shed, garage, or other location on your property. This can turn your dream home into a complete nightmare. The thing about bats is that they come out at nighttime. These are nocturnal critters with terrible eyesight, meaning that they need to use their incredible hearing and sense of smell to get around. That may be good for them, but when you see a bat swooping down on you in the middle of the night it can be terrifying.

It’s a Real Issue
The problem with bats is that they are not easy to keep away. Because of how small they are, it is quite easy for them to get into the smallest of nooks or crevices. This poses serious problems, as bats are the carriers of a number of diseases and parasites. Even coming in contact with their feces or urine puts you at risk. It’s why you want to take every measure possible to try to keep them away.

Keeping Them Away
This means you need to take action to try to reduce their ability to come around your home or to find access into your structures. With a few items, you can do the job.

Anti-Bat Oils
This sounds like something you would see on Batman, but there are anti-bat oils. These are a petroleum jelly type substance that you can place around problem areas, such as door frames, windows, siding boards, and ventilation slats. It poses no risk to you, but acts as an irritating deterrent to bats. This should help to keep them away. The great thing about this product is that it will keep other animals away as well. If you are having issues with squirrels and raccoons around your property, this will help you to reduce that issue.

You also want to do a thorough inspection around your home. Look for loose siding boards, gaps, holes, or cracks that a bat could use to easily slide its way into your structure. Keep in mind that it doesn’t take much for a bat to get in. So, you need to be real thorough about the job you do. If you come across in problem areas, you will need sealant, caulk, and steel wool. Before applying the caulk, add some steel wool to it. This will keep the animal from digging his way back through your handiwork. Then apply the sealant to keep the board tight.

Bungee Cord
If you are finding that the bat is getting into your garbage can, then bungee cord will help to seal the lid on top of the can. Wrap it tightly between the two handles, so that it is tight enough to securely hold the lid in place. You also want to remove pet dishes and any other kind of food source for bats. You may also need some insecticides if roaches, grasshoppers, and other insects are drawing the bats to your property.
