How to Get Bats Out of a Wall

Bats, just like any other wild animals, are slaves to their instinct. That said they will only get into your home if they think it's important for their survival. That is why they find their way into the walls, attics and that can spell a lot of doom in a home especially if their invasion isn’t put in check.

Bats don’t just destroy your food and everything else, they can also cause disturbances as they claw their way through the walls. They can also chew on electrical wires while sharpening their incisors and that can lead to faults in electrical equipment.

And let me not start on the foul smell when they die inside the walls. That said it is important to know just how to get rid of them once they get inside your walls. Here is how you can go about it:

Expelling the Bats from Your Wall

There are plenty of ways that bats can get their way into your walls. If they find some cracks or an opening through the attic, they will always have a good time making your home their home without paying their share of the rent. Thankfully, home owners can smile because they wouldn’t have to burn their houses to kill the bats.

There are plenty of ways in which they can eliminate bats. One of them is by putting bright lights inside your walls. The latter will make the inside the wall rather unpleasant as they hate bright lights. You can also put gadgets that emit high pitched noises that will drive them away permanently.

And to make sure that they aren’t coming back, always make a point of sealing all entry points. Trapping bats is not a good idea because they can bite and claw when they feel threatened. Always drill a hole inside the walls to place the bright lights or high pitch noise producing gadgets. Remember to have an opening that will allow for the bats to fly out but not come back in.

There are plenty of bat experts you can contact and will help you out with the bat problem that you have.

Are There Any Laws That Protect the Well-Being of Bats?

Despite the fact that bats can be such a nuisance in your home, it is important to note that they are just following instinct. They don’t really know they are inconveniencing you and your family in any way. It is, therefore, a good idea for you to use lawful means of removing them. As the dictum says, prevention is far much better than remedy.

It is, therefore, a good idea to rat-proof your home so as to avoid having them getting in and causing a disturbance. According to the Animal Welfare Act of 2006, it is against the law trapping animals and causing unnecessary suffering.

That includes drowning, suffocating and bludgeoning to death. If possible, calling in an animal control expert could be a brilliant idea altogether as it will be quick and utterly merciful to the rodents. Thankfully, animal control personnel won't cost you that much.
