Bats, Bats and more Bats

Well its that time of year, the bat calls are starting to come in. Here in western NY the average temp this time of year is in the mid 40's but on the occasional day that the temps go north of 50 bats that are living in the walls and attics of homes and business are starting to come to life. This is when we get the call. Now is a great time to get started on bat exclusions. All sealing can be done and one way doors, or check valves as they are commonly called can be installed. At this point in the year bats have not yet given birth and there is no risk of trapping any baby bats in the home. Once May 15th rolls around, one way doors are a no-no, because bats may have given birth and blocking a female bats re-entry into the home will cause the babies to die. After August 15th it will again be safe to install one way doors. In the mean time all other sealing can be done. Bats are very benefical to nature and are mother natures own pest control. They eat thousands of insects a night. While bats outdoors are great, nobody wants to share their home with them. If bats are making their home in your home, Cayuga Creek Nuisance Wildlife Removal can help, give us a call to schedule an inspection. We can be reached at 716-903-0758, or visit us on the web at
