Are bats driving you batty? Even when you cannot see these pests, they are still a big problem. We are here today to help you solve this issue. The question is, what should you know about these leathery home invaders, and what methods work best to get and keep them out of local homes?

Before we talk more about these aviary pests, consider the benefits of professional bat control in Omaha. Call our team at CP Bat Mitigation for fast and effective services to handle bats inside your home. Keep reading to learn more about these pests and discover the best methods for preventing bats locally.

Types Of Bats Common To The Area

There are more than a few different types of bats that live here in Omaha. Thankfully, most common species do not like to invade homes or have little reason to do so. The two species that we find indoors all the time are little brown bats and big brown bats. The main thing that sets these two species apart is size. You can probably guess which one is smaller.

If you have been hearing odd noises in your attic or noticed things like fecal droppings on your attic floor, you might have an active bat infestation. Let us know if you would like us to pay you a visit to identify what types of bats you are dealing with indoors. We will send a technician your way for a quick inspection. 

The Many Problems Bats Around The House Can Create

Bats are not entirely bad pests. In fact, they help a lot with managing local pest populations. If this was the only thing they did, we would have less of a problem with them living inside local attics.

Unfortunately, bats are dangerous to humans. They spread several harmful diseases, the most common being histoplasmosis and rabies. Histoplasmosis is spread through spores that might grow on bat droppings in your attic. You can contract it by breathing in, which makes it a serious problem. Rabies, on the other hand, is spread through bites and sometimes scratches. Bats are especially good at spreading rabies because of their ability to survive this disease. To help you avoid potential problems with bats, here are some things to consider about bat control.

Proactive Bat Prevention Tips For Around Your Home

If you would like to keep bats out of your home, you need to be proactive. One thing you can consider is implementing some basic exclusion tips.

Here are some of the best prevention methods we have to offer.

  • Address damage to your home’s roofline and make sure that all of your shingles are in good order and that there is no damage to your roof.

  • Install a bat-proof cap to your chimney and make sure it is in good condition.
