If you’ve been hearing fluttering or scratching coming from your walls or attic, you may have a bat or bat infestation.
Some species of bats are looking for warm homes where they can spend the winter safe from the elements. They are also active during the warmer months. If you’ve discovered a bat or colony of bats living in your home, the Bat Control Specialists Of Hudson Valley are the local company you can trust to humanely get rid of bats and along with our bat proofing services to help protect your home against re-infestation.
The key is to identify where the bats have gained access to your home in order for bat proofing to be effective. Here are four possible ways they could have gotten in.
It can be hard to control bats entering your home through roofing. A space only needs to be about the thickness of your pinkie for a bat to be able to squeeze through. A roof could be brand new and still have places that bats can exploit. Roofers protect against water intrusion not bat intrusion. For bat proofing, contact the Bat Control Specialists Of Hudson Valley.
Whether the exterior of your home is brick, stone, or siding, all it takes is for the siding to begin to deteriorate or the brick or stone to crack for a bat to find its way inside your walls to a cozy breeding space. Even without damage, A bat can enter a house in places where walls meet eaves and eaves meet roof lines. Before the cold weather sets in and bats decide to take up residence in your residence, call the Bat Control Specialists Of Hudson Valley.

Just like unwelcomed humans, a bat could waltz right in through the front door, only you might not even realize it. Ensuring that your windows and doors are tightly sealed is one way to bat proof your home. Contacting the Bat Control Specialists Of Hudson Valley is a better way.
Vents are another potential entry point for bats. If the screen is missing or compromised, vents provide a roomy, spacious entry. This makes it less complicated for bats to gain access to your home.
