Bats

Often judged by their peculiar appearance and nocturnal tendency, bats have a frightening connotation and can be shocking when swooping low over fields and properties at dusk. Bats can get into homes through impossibly small cracks, so it is absolutely essential to have an expert examine where the bats could be getting into your home. Nesting in your attic may seem innocent enough, but bats' very existence can cause expensive damage. Call Wildlife X Team® today at (855) WILDLIFE for help beginning the bat removal process today!

Common Bat Problems

Bats, despite their size, can cause severe damage, mostly in the form of unpleasant scents. The minimum size of crack needed for them to slip through is roughly the diameter of a dime.

  • Large deposits of guano often found in corners of attics
  • Presence in chimneys, although sometimes by accident
  • Bites or scratches that can lead to potentially fatal diseases

Are Bats Actually Dangerous?

Bats are not inherently dangerous, but like all wildlife animals, they are best left to their natural habitats. The relocation and removal process is also best left to professionals, as bats will bite if threatened. If you are finding signs of bat presence on your property or if you spot one, or want to know how to get rid of bats from your attic and chimney, please call our Wildlife X Team® at (855) WILDLIFE today. We can help you solve your bat problems, now and for good!

More About Bats

  • Bats are found all around the world and there are hundreds of different species of bat, living in forests and caves, particularly in the Southern Hemisphere. The bumblebee bat found in the jungles of Thailand, is the smallest mammal in the world and weighs less than a penny!
  • Bats hunt at night using their exceptional sight to pick out their prey, generally insects, frogs and small rodents. The size of bat varies with the species, but some bats can have a wingspan of over 2 meters, like the Indonesian giant flying fox! Smaller bat species can be as little as only 2 cm.
  • The Niah Caves in the Malaysian state of Sarawak, on the tropical island of Borneo, is particularly famous for the sightings of thousands of bats. Oddly enough the enormous quantities of the bat’s dung (known as guano), is one of the things that draws so many people towards bats!
  • Some species of bat are known to fly at extreme heights, sometimes up to 2 miles above the ground! The bats senses are so fine tuned that it is thought that some bats can hear footsteps 6 miles away.
  • Bats have a sixth sense known as echolocation. This means that the bat creates a series of supersonic sounds, which the bat then uses to locate prey by the sounds that are reflected back to them.
  • Unlike most species of animal, bats are found in any environment around the world excluding the polar regions. Despite what myths you may have heard, only three species of bat feed on animal blood and they all live in the deep jungles of South America, not Transylvania.
