WHY ARE BAT INFESTATIONS IN SCHOOLS COMMON?
Some reasons we see bats making roosts in schools:
- Most schools are either older buildings that have acquired bat entry gaps through the years, or they are modern construction that has lower construction standards. Bats are quick to find openings.
- Usually, school buildings are the tallest building in the area, surrounded by houses. Bats are drawn to high points.
- Typically, schools have playgrounds and sports fields that can hold water and attract more bugs, resulting in more bats.
