If you ever see bats flying outside your house, you may wonder, “Are they simply hunting bugs near my house or are they actually hunting here because they live in my house?” This is an important question to ask and one that isn’t always easy to answer.
Here are a few tips to help you determine if bats are living in the structure.
- Do you notice rice-sized black droppings outside your house? Do those droppings reappear when you remove them? If so then you likely have bats.
- Have you encountered a bat in your living area? (Note always follow local health department guidelines for handling bats that may have interacted with people or pets). If this encounter occurred in the winter, then you definitely have bats living in the structure. If during the summer, the rule of thumb is, that you may have bats living in the house. Call virginiawildlifecontrol.com @ 703-520-5868 to have us inspect your house.
- Did you notice rice-sized droppings collected on the attic floor? If so, then you have had bats living in the attic. (Caution, we don’t recommend checking your attic to see as you may expose yourself to a fungal infection known as histoplasmosis). Need to be sure? Then make an appointment for us to perform a thorough bat inspection of your property.
