What Are Bats in the Attic?

There Are 2 Types Of Bats In The Attic: 

Pipistrelle Bat. This is the most common bat species found in U.S. homes. Pipistrelle bats weigh about 1.5 ounces, making them the smallest bat in the world. Their wingspan is 6 to 7 inches, and their nDeg 60 (measurement of wing span divided by wingspan) is 1.5 to 1.9. They are named for the French city of Poitiers, where they typically live.

  • Big Brown Bat.

The big brown bat is distinguished by its larger wings and head. The big brown bat is a nocturnal mammal and is, therefore, most active at night. Big brown bats are federally protected. The bat is endangered in Kansas.

Signs of Bats Infestation In Attic:

  • Hear Sounds in the Attic.

If you hear sounds coming from your attic, do not go near it. This is a sign that you have a bat infestation in your attic.

  • Attic Has a Strong Pungent Odor.

Attic odor has a meaty, musty odor. Termites may live in a structure for several years, and the risk of infestation increases with age. The presence of termites is usually indicated by discarded wings, mud tubes, or swarming. The presence of one adult termite or termite swarmer may mean that an infestation exists.

  • You See Bats Flying to And from Home

In summary, if you are experiencing bats in your home after midnight, the attic may be their residence. The activity usually happens in late summer, when the bats are returning to their roost. In a very small percentage of cases, a bat may hibernate in the attic, and this can only be determined by accessing the attic and visually inspecting the bat.

  • Guano (Bat Droppings) Around Home.

The first sign of bats in the attic is bat droppings, which are small, round, tan or grey, and approximately the size of a pinhead. Additional signs of bats in the attic are bat urine stains, bat guano that smells bad, and guano that stains the ceiling. Bat droppings found in attics and other living areas are indications that there may be a bat infestation. Bat droppings are about 1/8-5/16 inch long and 1/8-3/8 inch wide. These droppings may contain 2-3 (20 to 40) droppings each. House sparrows, starlings, and pigeons may also leave behind similar pellets.

  • Oily Streaks Around Certain Parts of Home.

Bats can cause damage to your home by leaving behind droppings, urine, and other waste material which attracts insects. Bats carry various parasites, and their droppings can carry histoplasmosis. There is also the risk of bats getting into your home, potentially spreading rabies. To protect your home and family, you should have bats removed from your attic.

How to Get Rid of Bats In Attic:

3. Make sure there are no sources of water in the loft.

4. Remove all piles of items from the attic.
