Winter is coming to an end, which means bats are coming out of hibernation. As a homeowner, it is always good to invest in preventative maintenance to ensure these critters do not seek shelter in the warm comforts of your attic or crawlspace. Luckily, if you live in or around Oakland County, the team at My Bat Guy can help you out.
Why & How Bats Enter Your Home
As temperatures rise and bats wake up, they will eventually want to find a good spot to have babies and raise young. Your attic space is ideal because is it warm, protected from the elements, and there is less risk of other critters seeking out the babies as prey. If they have easy access to your space, you can bet they will take advantage of it!
Now, you may think your home is sealed off well and that no bat stands a chance of working its way in. Well, you could be surprised! Bats can squeeze through cracks that are less than half an inch thick, so it is easier than you might think to miss one of their points of entry.
If you aren’t sure where to start when it comes to locating and closing off gaps and openings throughout your home, count on us. We know where to look and we can securely seal up any spot we find.
Already Have A Bat Problem?
Now, if you already have bats in your home, or if you notice any throughout the upcoming weeks, you have to be cautious when proceeding with any removal techniques. First of all, waiting til they leave, then sealing up your space is not an option, as they could have left babies behind. Not only is this illegal, but it is inhumane and could leave you with some unpleasant odors.
It is also against the law to fumigate or poison the bats, as these critters are endangered. Trust us, bats are great for the planet, and they keep the bug and mosquito population down significantly. Without them, we would be suffering!
Having them removed in a safe and humane fashion is always the way to go, and here at My Bat Guy, we make sure that happens. We will get the bats out in a way that is non-harmful, and we will set them free in a more suitable environment, where they are set up to thrive. It’s a win-win – you stay bat-free, and Michigan does not get overpopulated with nasty pests that leave us annoyed and scratching.

Did the bats leave behind some urine stains or piles of guano? Or perhaps they chewed up your wiring or damaged some of the materials throughout your attic. No matter the predicament we can help. We have the equipment to clean, sanitize, and restore your attic space, so you can get back to your normal routine in no time.
