WHY DO BATS CHOOSE TO LIVE IN HUMAN STRUCTURES?

The increase of human expansion has resulted in a loss of habitat for bats, forcing them to look for alternative roosts to live in and raise their young. Roof voids, attics, vacant buildings and barns all provide bats with warm, safe places to hide and live. 

HOW DO I KEEP A BAT FROM ROOSTING UNDER THE OVERHANG OF MY PORCH?

Occasionally, a single bat or two will take up temporary residence under the eave of a porch. These bats are not trying to attack people, they are simply in need of a short-term roost. If left alone, the bat will probably leave on its own when the weather turns cooler. However, if you need it removed we can safely do that for you.

Repellent devices are not effective. In fact, when ultrasonic devices were tested by bat experts some of them actually attracted bats! Moth balls are not effective because they evaporate quickly and require frequent replacement. Additionally, chemical toxicants should never be used to solve bat problems. It is a violation of federal law to use a chemical in any way other than for what it is strictly intended, and currently, there are no poisons or chemicals licensed for use against bats. The illegal poisoning of bats may create health hazards and liabilities for property owners. Poisoned bats will die inside the walls and ceiling, creating bacteria and odor, and dying bats may fall to the ground both inside and outside the property where they are more likely to come into contact with children and pets.

Traps are not recommended and have actually been known to drive bats to the inside of a structure. Trapping is also extremely inhumane.

The only safe, humane way to evict bats from a building is by exclusion, a method of using  one-way valves that allow bats to leave the roost but then prevents them from re-entering.
