Akron Bat Removal
Description and Appearance of Bats
There are almost 1,000 different species of bats across the world and over 40 of them that reside within the United States. They are a beneficial animal to our global ecosystem because most of them are insectivores who feed on mosquitoes, moths, and beetles and help to control the insect populations of their native regions. Bats have also gained a reputation for all of the different diseases that they can carry.
Bats are noticeable with their pronounced wings, scalloped at the bottom as if it mimics the appearance of an umbrella’s lower edge? The wings are hairless and are protected by a leathery and rubbery skin. Bats have short snouts with rodent-like ears.
Bats can range in size from 2 ½ to 8 inches in length with wingspans of between 8 and 23 inches in width. They have furry bodies and they come in a variety of different colors from tan to gray. Their eyesight is poor, and they heavily rely on their large ears and echolocation to fly and locate food. Bats are the only known mammal that is capable of true flight.
Habitat of Bats
These animals are able to adapt to most environments except for those with extreme conditions like the polar regions and harsh deserts. The environments they live in can include deserts, forests, suburbs, cities, and everywhere in between. Different species of bats prefer different environments. Although most bats prefer to live in warmer climates, they will hibernate in temperate zones in barns, caves, attics, under bridges, tree cavities, and even mines so they can survive the winter months.
Bats prefer dark and safe structures. They thrive in places where fewer people go or where they are safe from predators like in the attic, in the chimneys, or in abandoned buildings. During the morning, they sleep and at night, they go out to hunt for food and return again when they have enough.
Entry and Damage of Bats
Bats are nocturnal animals; thus, they are usually an animal that people will not interact with on a daily basis. The problem arises when bats are looking for areas in which to hibernate. This search can cause them to enter areas such as an attic to find a secure hibernation roost. They are able to enter a home through an opening that is as small as a quarter of an inch in diameter.
They do not chew their way in but can cause damage in a home in other ways. One of the major issues that present are the various diseases that they can carry. It is rare for a person to catch rabies from a bat, but they are known to carry the disease. Their droppings are the perfect catalyst for the growth of the fungus that causes histoplasmosis. Fleas, ticks, and mites are parasites that bats can carry around with them. Finally, their urine and droppings can be caustic and damage a building and create horrible odors.
During the winter months, many species of bats migrate so they can hibernate. They look for places where they can rest for a slowed down body rate for 6 months. This can be caves, mines, or even your home’s attic. Bats hibernate from fall (Oct/Nov) until spring (Mar/Apr). Bats that hibernate in your homes move could move down between wall, and you may sometimes hear a scratching or screeching sound when they move or when they are being disrupted.
Control of Bats
There are numerous ways that people can keep bats from entering their homes. One thing people have done is built bat boxes around their gardens and homes to deter the bats from making their way inside. These give them alternative places to roost. Sealing possible entry points, illuminating attics, and eaves at night, and installing fans in the attic to keep it cool are some of the other measures that people have taken to keep bats out of their homes.
If you have a single bat or two, Akron bat removal won’t be a difficult task. All you need to do is shoo them of and completely seal your building to make sure they won’t return. The problem arises when you have a colony of bats in the attic, the chimney, or any location in your home.
Removal and Exclusion of Bats
If a problem is suspected, professional help should be utilized. Certified professionals will know how to handle the situation legally (as some bat species are protected), safely, and humanely as possible. They will help people to establish a plan for bat removal from the home. It is necessary that removing bats is carried out by professionals because if it is done before all of the animals have been removed, this could cause them to die or enter the home. A professional will know how to handle these delicate situations that are unique to dealing with bats.
Arkon bat removal is not an easy task. There aren’t any effective bat repellant sold in the market that can do the job as expected. Those high-pitched noise makers don’t do the job as well. In fact, FTC issued a warning that these so-called bat repellents on the market do not work. And don’t even attempt to use bat poison either as it can do more harm than good. Not only that, some states protect certain species of bats so if you happen to kill one, you’ll face with many legal issues.
The proper way to remove bats is to exclude the colony and seal off all the possible entry points of the bats in your home. This can be tricky as bats can fit even the tiniest holes. There is no quick and easy way to get rid of bats on your own – let Akron bat removal professionals do the task for you.
