If you think you have a bat infestation, you need professional help immediately. Bats are nothing for an inexperienced person to mess around with because of the chance of rabies. If you have an infestation of bats in the attic, chances are they are in your walls and basement as well. Some bats enter homes that do not have screens on the chimney or screens on the air vents. Ripped or torn window screens allow bats to enter the home. If one finds its way in, many more can follow and hide in places you will never see them.
The pest control company can work with this problem and find points of entrance in order to prevent future bat infestations. They will eliminate the infestation carefully so as not to cause the bats to attack. A professional exterminator knows the best way to eliminate bats without receiving any bites. As a homeowner, you may not know the proper way to handle a bat infestation. Pest management is important after the infestation is eliminated. You will want to have a guarantee that all bats are gone and no further instances will occur.
Many people use bat houses in their yards to keep bats away from the house, but what they do not realize is that this is attracting more bats to the area. Exterminators will tell you that this may cause more problems and tell you to remove it. Pest control does not just mean clearing the infestation, it means finding all possible reasons why it occurred in the first place to prevent it from happening in the future. If you are not knowledgeable about bats, you need a professional pest control company to take care of the problem. Make sure to ask for a written guarantee that the bats will not return to your home with your estimate.
