Frequently Asked Questions About The Bats In Rochester

bat flying

Contrary to popular belief, bats aren't secret superheroes or vampires dressed in capes. Bats are small, nocturnal mammals belonging to the order Chiroptera. Their bodies are covered with hair ranging from tan to black. These critters can vary in size from 2 3/16 inches to 7 ½ inches in length; their wingspan is around 6 inches to 15 inches long.

A fun fact about bats is that they are the only mammal capable of true flight. However, this fact is not fun if you find them in your Rochester property. The most common types of bats found in Rochester are the little brown bat and the big brown bat. So, if you've discovered bats in or around your property, they're likely one of these two species.

Nonetheless, discovering any species of bats warrants a call to Rochester rodent control. RodentX Wildlife Control is your premier provider of bat management services throughout western and central New York. There's no bat problem too big or too small for us.

How Can You Tell If Bats Are Living In Your Attic?

Things can always go "bump in the night," whether your property is old or new. The likelihood of it being some ghoul or monster are slim to none; however, here in Rochester, there is a much higher chance of bats nesting in your attic.

If you've noticed any of these signs, it's time to call for bat control near you:

  • Your attic has a strong ammonia odor due to feces.
  • You see bats flying toward and away from your house. 
  • You hear scratching or little squeaking noises.
  • Your pet brings a bat home.
  • Your ceilings have stains on them.

The bat control specialists at RodentX Wildlife Control are here to protect your Rochester property with the best wildlife control for bats. Call to learn more.

Are Bats Harmful?

The short answer to this question is yes. However, bats are good for our environment because they consume mosquitoes, reducing mosquito-borne illnesses. At the same time, bats don't belong inside your home or property. Their droppings contaminate the environment and feed other pests. Although they rarely carry rabies, if a bat bites or scratches you, cleanse the wound immediately and see a doctor because they can also carry other diseases.

The best way to control bats in Rochester is to hire home wildlife control services for safe and effective bat removal.

What Are Bats Afraid Of? 

Bats won't be able to enter your home if physical obstacles exist, but certain deterrents work better at repelling them. For example, bats are repelled by the scent of cinnamon, eucalyptus, mothballs, and white phenol. Bright lighting also helps keep them away. Bats also dislike reflective objects, so you can hang old CDs, mirrors, aluminum foil strips, or mylar balloons to deter them.

If you need help removing bats or sanitizing your property due to bats, call RodentX Wildlife Control to get your services started.
