Identify Bats: Why Are Bats Important Animals Most people are afraid of bats, but it is important to remember how these mammals impact the environment. The 40 species of bats living in North America are flying mammals (the only in the world) and can eat 500 or more flying insects in a single night. When there are bats in the house, they are likely looking for safe places to roost during the daytime. Proper precautions should always be taken when handling nuisance bats, so contact a Critter Control bat removal professional in your area if you have bats in your home. Bat Problems: Bat Entry, Bat Noises, Bat Removal Bat problems occur and bat removal is necessary when bats get stuck inside homes and other buildings during the end of summer and beginning of fall. Bats are so small they can squeeze through tiny holes only 3/8 inch wide! This makes them tricky to catch. Bats typically enter through vents, end construction gaps, overhangs or eaves, causing a number of different bat problems. They may also enter houses through open windows and chimneys. Once inside, bats will continue living within a building for years, until bat control, bat exclusion, and bat removal is implemented. If there are multiple bats within a building, this indicates a colony and a major problem. Typical bat damages include urine stains and the collection of droppings. The most common complaint from people with bats in the house are the noises: the scratching, crawling, squeaking, and chirping sounds in attics and within walls.
