How do I get rid of bats in my attic?

Bats are a common sight at twilight in Chattanooga as they hunt for flying bugs. Unfortunately, bats sometimes decide to start roosting in the attics of local homes. Bat guano is extremely corrosive and can destroy the insulation, ductwork and flooring of your attic, while bats themselves can be vectors for rabies.

If you’ve discovered a bat infestation in your attic in Chattanooga, follow these tip to get rid of the bats:

  • Place bright lights in your attic. Bats are nocturnal critters that hate strong light and are likely to leave your attic in search of a new home if it becomes too bright for them.
  • Create constant noise in your attic using an ultrasonic repellent or speakers playing loud music. Because they have sensitive ears, bats find too much noise intolerable and will likely abandon your attic.
  • Scatter mothballs around your attic. The smell is extremely repulsive to bats and will discourage them from using your attic as a roost.
  • Install mesh barriers over any exterior vent openings. Unlike rodents, bats cannot bite and claw through these barriers, which will prevent them from invading your attic through vents.
  • Get help from a licensed wildlife control company in Chattanooga. With special training in bat removal, wildlife management technicians will be able to quickly remove all bats from your attic, often through installation of a one-way valve over the bats’ point of entry. The professionals can also use caulk or weatherstripping to seal up holes which allow bats to access your home.
