A Common Sign Of Infestation: Bats In The House
Bats infesting homes in Missouri are a common nuisance issue for homeowners to deal with. Bats showing up inside living quarters of the home are often younger juveniles. Being new to their surroundings and becoming more mobile the young bats will explore and accidentally become lost and end up inside the house.
Bats in the house can be both terrifying and concerning, but no worries, the bats aren’t going to come down and get in your hair or suck your blood, those are just old wives tales. But we don’t blame you for finding these winged critters pretty freaky. What we mean by concerning is there may be a larger problem brewing in the upper levels of the home whenever you find a bat flying around the house; because the bat(s) may be apart of a colony in the attic.
To determine if this is just a rogue bat or an actual bat colony, The Wildlife Command Center will do a thorough inspection of the property. Maternity bat colonies are the most common when there’s a larger issue at hand. These bats will number from several dozen to several hundred bats in the colony.
Finding Evidence Of The Colony; “How Do I Know If I Have Bats In My Attic?”
During the bat inspection process we will access the attic and upper levels of the roof. These are important steps in order to read the signs of a possible bat infestation. Below we divulge the services we offer for Granite City bat control.
1. Attic Inspection; Finding Droppings & Bats
During the attic inspection we look for bat droppings within the insulation, or sometimes we can even see the bats themselves when there is a larger colony, but it is generally not very common to see them as the bats tend to be hiding in tight spots. Bat Droppings are the most obvious sign when looking through the attic for bats.
2. Roof Inspection; Locating Primary Entry Points
During the roof inspection we fully examine the exterior of the building in hopes of locating the primary entry the bats are using to gain access. This spot will either be obvious, or not at all. Sometimes all we find are a couple droppings on the side of the building below the entry, while more obvious conditions include grease marks or urine stains around the entry. There are a multitude of areas that bats can access a home, so the attic inspection is generally the most common place to find evidence of bats.
The Solution: “How Do You Get Rid Of Bats When A Problem Is Discovered?”
How Do You Get Rid Of Bats You Ask? Well, if a bat colony is present inside the home, your home will need a service known as bat exclusion. This process involves sealing and wiring off the exterior of the building. Sealing from the inside is often ineffective and incomplete due to various crevices bats will travel around. Sealing all potential secondary entry points is important, but we never seal the actual entry point. Instead we install a device over the main entry to allow the bats to pass through it, and when they come back the bats will be unable to get back inside. These devices have multiple nicknames, but are most commonly referred to as “one way doors” or “bat cones.”
Bat Guano Cleanup And Attic Restoration; “Can You Clean What The Bats Leave Behind?”
Can we do cleanup too? Absolutely! There can be issues with bat guano mixed with home insulation. Bats are one of the most common animals that will force attic restoration to be justified. The Wildlife Command Center has you covered in this department as well providing attic sanitation and bat guano cleanup services to restore your attic and get rid of all traces of contamination. Insurance can sometimes help with bat guano cleanup. Consult with us for advice on this too.
Pheromones or Scent Left Behind By Bats; This Stuff Needs To Go!
The attic cleanup process must be done correctly to ensure no pheromones (or scent) is left behind. Pheromones left inside the attic can attract more bats to your home in the future. Although no bats should be able to get inside after the bat exclusion is completed, it’s still important because other species of animals can be attracted to your home from bat pheromones as well. Scent coming from your house is like saying to all critters; come on in! Once we complete the work, your home will be telling the animals just the opposite! Call our team at The Wildlife Command Center for bat guano remediation, cleanup, and insulation removal in Granite City.
Professionals & Bat Removal; “How Do I Find Someone Qualified?”
It’s takes a good deal experience to correctly perform bat work, and we at The Wildlife Command Center have what it takes. Our bat exclusion techniques have been proven effective though the many years working in this trade.
Never hire someone who doesn’t handle bat problems on a regular basis!!! There are many companies that will euthanize bats, and to put this in lighter terms, that just isn’t cool. Bats are also federally protected and anyone who attempts to kill bats will be subject to heavy fines. Others will be con artists as well, so be weary of a company without a reputation. The homeowners responsibility is to research the company they want to hire. We encourage you to look us up as well. Unlike other companies, we don’t just want paid, but we genuinely care about solving your issues.

Top 5 Bat Problems In Missouri
- Bats In The Attic – When bats invade an attic space they are likely to build up large amounts of guano deposits scattered throughout the attic. The Wildlife Command Center can provide attic cleanup when bats make a mess.
- Bats In The Chimney- Bats are very common to invade the chimney area. Many people will get bats flying around in the house when bats are present inside their chimney. This is generally due to an open flu in the chimney.
- Bats In Vents- Vents can be highly attractive to bats because of the drafts protruding from the vents. People will often notice bats in vents when waste begins to accumulate somewhere below the vent area.
- Bats In The House- The hot summer seasons can drive bats to come down from an attic into living areas. Bats do this because the attic becomes too hot for them, so they go lower seeking cooler temps.
- Bats In Church- One of the more common structures for bats to invade are churches. Many times churches have open steeples, welcoming many different creatures including bats. The Wildlife Command Center can help.
