The thing is, if you have bats in your basement, it’s indicative of a bat infestation.
Bats prefer higher elevation and tend to enter a structure from the top, such as through the roof or the chimney. By the time they’re occupying the basement, it typically means that they’ve populated the attic and the walls first.
Many people mistakenly try to seal the basement, thinking that will stop the influx of bats there. Unfortunately, it isn’t enough, because those bats aren’t coming in from below—they’re coming in from above.
what to do about it
Bats are a health hazard and a drag on property values, so I recommend you look into bat exclusion if you have any bats in your home. Like we mentioned last week, it’s the off season for most bats (who are either hibernating or migrating), so you’re not likely to see bats in the basement for a while yet.
But it’s still important to remember what having bats in the basement represents when bat season comes around again in a few months! Never hesitate to call us if you have questions!
