There is a Bat in my House Montgomery County Ohio
There is a Bat in my House! Call Barnes Wildlife Control at any time of the day or night if you suspect that you have a bat loose within your home at (937) 340-1867.
If you call and tell us that There is a Bat in my House, we will ask you to do a few things while we’re on our way to you. If you know where the bat is, can you shut a door on that room and contain it? If you don’t know where the bat is, then don’t go hunting for it. Don’t chase the bat or swat at it. Keep pets well away. A confused or frightened bat is more likely to bite. A bat on the floor is certainly injured, sick or young – we always use thick leather gloves to handle bats with caution, and with care. Federal law and state regulations protect all bats and it is illegal to harm or kill them. Barnes Wildlife Control uses only humane methods to deal with bats within that legal framework so you no longer will have to search for There is a Bat in my House!
So, if There is a Bat in my House, why don’t I just open a door or window and let it out? Well, answer these few questions before you do that. When did you first notice the bat? Where did you first notice the bat? If the answers involve a bedroom and if you suspect that you were asleep while the bat was in that room, you may not realize or even know if the bat bit or scratched you. Small Brown and Big Brown bats are common here in the Miami Valley, but their bites and their scratches are tiny. Bats can carry rabies and, although rabies infects approximately one percent of bats, the Ohio Department of Health (Visit Site) compiles data, releasing the following statistics – in 2018 there were 53 confirmed rabies cases in Ohio, and 41 of those were bats, 11 were raccoons, and one was a fox. Undetected bat bites pose a real danger. Infants and young children are at particular risk from a bat in the bedroom. Children spend longer asleep, and they cannot always tell us about or show us any injury. We will catch the bat and help send it to the Ohio Department of Health for tests to ensure that you and your family are safe.
How did the bat get in? Did the bat fly in through an open door or window, or was the bat already inside the house structure, in the chimney or the attic? The type of bat or even the time of year may give us a clue. In the summer, young bats just learning to fly and navigate often enter homes by mistake through open doors or windows. In winter, hibernating Little Brown or Big Brown bats in an attic or chimney will still move about at times, leaving to drink and then perhaps finding their way back into the wrong part of the house.
This is when you call Montgomery County Ohio’s Premier Bat Exterminator Company when there is a bat in my house at this https://barneswildlifecontrol.com/montgomery-county-animal-pest-removal/. In extreme cold, they may seek somewhere warmer, such as an area within the house itself. Barnes Wildlife Control can investigate all the possibilities as well as the likely places where bats will hibernate or roost. If we find bats, or evidence of bats, we offer bat exclusions and clean up services.
A bat exclusion involves closing off and sealing bat entry points except for a few of the most used ones. These are then fitted with a humane one-way bat exclusion device or bat valve (THE BAT VALVE). These allow the bats to leave the attic or chimney but do not allow them to return. From May to mid-August when bats may have young, federal laws and state regulations do not permit bat exclusions because the mother bats need to return to their pups. If anyone carries out a bat exclusion incorrectly or seals the house without a bat exclusion, the bats may then try to enter the actual house to escape. Your problem where “There is a Bat in my House” could turn into something far more serious! Barnes Wildlife Control performs only professional quality and humane bat exclusions using one of the best products on the market using The Bat Valve pictured here.
