Another Bat Season Has Begun


We don’t see or hear from bats during the long, Canadian winters we endure. After the snow melts and the weather warms up is when the winged-mammals begin to stir.

If your home has never been inspected for a bat colony, you’re not alone. Many homeowners experience the odd bat in the house, often dismissing it as a one-off occurrence or a fluke.

This is not likely the case, since bats are extremely good navigators who truly have no business flying around inside your living space (there’s no food!). Bats can find their way into your kitchen, living room or other areas of the home by accident — but they usually arrive there from inside your attic. Bats have the ability to enter your attic through holes and gaps much smaller than a finger, making it very difficult to locate the source of the infestation.

Bats living inside houses will often lose their way inside the attic or wall cavities and end up inside the living space. This is especially true for young bats during summer who are still learning to use their echolocation skills .

If you find a bat flying around your house, we suggest a full inspection of the exterior and attic for evidence of a larger colony. The odds are very low its the only one living there.
