How to Prevent a Winter Bat Infestation

In warm months, bats can be effective natural pest control agents -- they eat disease-carrying mosquitoes by the thousands. But in the winter, when many insects are dormant, bats are just looking for a warm, dry place to reside, and your home makes an enticing option. Bats especially look to attics for shelter.

Making sure your attic is sealed off from bats is the first step. Close holes, gaps, and cracks leading into your attic, especially under eaves and gutters. Bats can squeeze through much smaller holes than you imagine, so seal anything you see! But make sure all the bats are outside before you seal up holes -- you don't want to accidentally trap a bat inside.

Get Rid of Bats This Winter

Additionally, removing bats' food source will force them to relocate. So getting rid of bugs and flies will make sure bats leave as well. Comprehensive pest control can ensure your home is free of bats, mice, bugs, rats and much more.
