I Hear Scratching in the Attic & Walls

If you hear scratching in your ceiling or walls you may think it’s a mouse. Chances are you are hearing the sound of bat claws on your drywall. Bats like very warm spaces therefore underneath your insulation and down your walls is the perfect spot. Bats in Michigan are cavity-dwelling bats so they roost in caves or cave-like structures. Your attic is set up like an artificial cave, a perfect environment. Bats are nocturnal mammals, so the sounds you hear at night are bats coming and going to feast on mosquitoes. Bat removal and bat exclusion work are essential because bats carry many diseases like rabies. Their droppings (bat guano) can cause lung infection diseases like histoplasmosis. When the tiny little fungi spores become airborne they cling to dust and particles moving through your ventilation throughout your house.

If I have Bats, How Do I Get Rid of Them?

Bat Pest Control Services

Bats are excluded from your home or attic through a live exclusion process. This is done by bat-proofing your home with a screen, caulking, caps, etc. Also, a one-way trap door is installed at the entry point so the bats can get out but not get back in. We are not exterminators or a bat pest control company. We strictly and proudly only use poison-free bat control methods. When thinking of an exterminator or pest control company we urge you to think of the humane method for bat removal. Bats are protected both federally and in the state of Michigan. No ultrasonic, high-frequency device or bat repellent will get rid of your bats nor keep them out. Moth balls or “bat away” never work. In fact, it is harmful to have it in your attic or home. FTC gives a warning on the use of ultrasonic pest control devices.

Time of Year

Bat Inspection

Inspect the attic: Check for any entry points that the bats use to enter the attic. These could be small gaps or holes that the bats can squeeze through.

One-Way Bat Door

Install one-way exclusion devices. One-way exclusion devices are designed to allow bats to leave the attic but not re-enter. Install them on all entry points that were identified earlier. It's important to ensure that no bats are left behind in the attic, and the devices should be left in place for several days to make sure all the bats have left.

Seal Entry Points

Seal entry points after all bats have left the attic. This will prevent future entry. Materials like caulk, mesh, or foam insulation can be used to do this.
