How Do Bats Get In A Structure
Bats, although they may not seem like it – particularly if they’re flying around inside your home, are tiny critters. A lot of adult bats can enter an opening 3/8″ by 1″ or larger. That’s not a very big opening. Common bat entry points include:
- Attic or gable ends vents
- Roof ridge vents
- Gaps and openings along chimney flashing
- Chimneys and fireplaces
- Loose or missing siding
- Soffit and eaves
- Roof edge drip lines
Are Bats Dangerous
We are often asked if bats are dangerous. The short answer is yes, they can be. Bats are considered a rabies vector species. If you find a bat in the living quarters of your home, your best approach is to contact your local health department and have if tested for rabies. Don’t kill the bat and dispose of it. By doing so you may lose the ability to have it tested for rabies, and some bats are protected by Federal and State laws. Don’t capture the bat and put it outside, Again you lose the ability to test the bat for rabies, and it will probably just reenter the house again.
How Do I Catch A Bat
We don’t recommend untrained homeowners to try and catch a bat. Bats have a lot of tiny and very sharp teeth. Like most animals, they will try to bite, particularly if they feel threatened.
