Hearing scratching late at night? Fluttering through your walls? We think its a bird, mice, or other rodent.  Well guess again, you've probably got bats in the attic.  Bats in Michigan are dwelling bats, meaning they live in caves or cave like structures.  What better place for a bat to live then a very hot sheltered attic keeping them free from predators and high off the ground making it an easy way out to feed at night.  We generally find that bats will enter a structure 7 to 8 feet and higher.  Big brown and little brown bats are the most common bats to find in your Michigan house attic.  These are colonizing bats because they live in large groups.  These colonies can be referred as maternity or male bachelor colonies. Maternal mothers will have their pups here so they can be nurtured, raised, and protected.

How do Bats Get Into My Attic?

Bats are common in Michigan. Almost as common as a mouse in the attic. Just because you have bats in the attic does not mean your house is old or dirty. Bats will choose homes of brand new construction often times more than older homes. The reason for this, is because most newer homes have several different gable pitches allowing for more construction gaps. Just because you have bats in the attic does not mean your home is poorly built. All homes have construction gaps. Bats chose your home for no other reason than a sheltered area to nest. With that said here are common reason's bats nest in your attic. 
  • Your roof has openings larger than a 1/4 inch. 
  • You have gable vents (screened or un-screened) 
  • You have a ridge vent not properly installed.
  • Your painters did not properly caulk your home. 
  • You are missing a chimney cap.
These are all common reasons to have bats in the attic. We offer bat removal solutions to keep bats out of the attic.  

Seeing a lot of bat droppings in the attic but there are no bats in sight?  Well this is because bats will find crevices and warm places like under your insulation to live.  We assume bats will be hanging upside down up high in the attic.  This can be true sometimes but in Michigan the weather is so up and down, the bats need warm areas to survive.  During the hottest months like August and September you may see bats hanging there.  

Why can't you just go up there and grab the bats?  Well you can't ever get to the whole colony.  Even if you did grab them all up and relocate them to another area they will always come back.  No matter how far away you take them.  Bats are persistent and will try to get back into their roosting areas up to five years.  Its important to make sure your home is bat proofed and all the necessary repairs are done to keep the bats out. Now that you understand bat in the attic and how they get there, there are certain steps to follow in order to properly get rid of them humanely and legally. 
 
 Steps for Proper Bat Removal From the Attic
  1. Locate where the bats are getting in.
  2. Install a one way exit door so the bats can only leave but not return.
  3. Seal off all other potential entry points a bat could use. General rule of thumb is anything a 1/4" or larger. 
  4. Clean up all of the droppings and Damaged insulation in the attic.
  5. Replace the insulation with new insulation.
