How do bats get into homes?
Bats must enter through existing openings and gaps. They don’t chew wood or tear though as rodents do. When bats have used a spot for entry for a period, they’ll leave dark oily dirty streaks on the spot where they are crawling in and out of your home. Oils from the bat’s fur rub off on the paint or wood and are visible. These marks are a clear sign you have an infestation, and it’s time to evict them. Bats have babies in the summer months, and that’s when they’re most active. Most leave in the winter to warmer climates in the south, but some stay around in North Ga in the milder winters. Do not kill bats, they are excluded from homes and structures only and removed humanely through one-way exit systems.
