Bats play an important role in our ecosystem. However, they are also associated with diseases that can be deadly to humans. Several highly fatal diseases have been linked to bats. Rabies is perhaps the most well known disease associated with bats. Along with animals such as dogs, foxes, raccoons, and skunks, bats are one of the primary animals that transmit rabies. If you have bats in the house or bats are present in your commercial or industrial building, contact Bohmz Pest Services for assistance with bat removal, bat control & bat exclusions in Dane County, Rock County, Walworth County & Jefferson County (Madison, Middleton, Verona, Mt.

There are many bat varieties worldwide, but there are 7 species of bats that are commonly found in Wisconsin: Big Brown Bat (Eptesicus fuscus), Little Brown Bat (Myotis lucifugus), Northern Myotis (Myotis septentrionalis), Silver-Haired Bat (Lasionycteris noctivigans), Red Bat (Lasiurus borealis) & the Hoary Bat (Lasiurus cinereus). The Little Brown Bat is the most common Myotis species in the northern two-thirds of the United States and the species most frequently found in buildings. It roosts in colonies in tree hollows and buildings during the summer, often with big brown bats, and hibernates in caves or abandoned mines.

Evidence That You May Have Bats In Your Attic Or Home
Bats seek the safety of dark, enclosed areas like caves to raise their young, called pups, However, when a cave is not available or overpopulated, bats will turn to the household attic because it most resembles a cave.
An attic may even have some advantages over a cave because of the reduction in predators and the advantage of height. The roosts found in attics are composed entirely of females, since they are the ones who raise the pups. Female bats give birth to a single pup anywhere from late April to early June. During this time, the baby bats are helpless and incapable of flight, meaning that bat removal cannot occur during the summer as it would endanger the pups. This is why they will stay in your attic for long periods of time!
The 3 Main Giveaways:
- Seeing Bat Activity during certain times (look at your roof space from the ground during the evening for bats flying around)
The most obvious sign of a bat infestation in your house is, of course, seeing a bat. Note: A single bat might not indicate a full-blown roost. So how can you tell if your home has become a haven to a bat colony? Look for the most obvious sign: bat guano (droppings)
- Bat Guano (see it, and smell it)
First, most homeowners tend to notice the odor that a bat colony can create – it can be extremely pungent! While bats in your attic themselves do not possess a particularly strong odor, their waste, in the form of guano and urine, is extremely pungent. While bats aren’t destructive like rodents, an accumulation of their guano can corrode wood and drywall and be a source for mold growth.
- Hearing the bats (at night time in most cases)
Homeowners can also identify bat activity based on noise, especially if the colony is on the larger size. In general, bats, when in smaller groups, are quiet creatures (unlike other attic rodents such as squirrels) so picking up their noise is generally a tough way to find them.
Other Areas You May Find Bats In Your House
Besides the attic, there are several other places around the home bats like to congregate. If you suspect a bat colony is residing in your home, thoroughly check the following areas for bat activity and attempt to observe how they are getting in the house:
Bats In The Chimney
Chimneys are a common roost site for bats, so if you find yourself in this situation, it is imperative that you do not light a fire. Doing so can cause bats to flee the chimney by entering your house!
In addition to occupying the outer parts of a house, a bat can also make its way into the living area of your home or garage. Removal of a bat from a living space requires care, so please contact a professional like Bohmz Pest Removal to help!
