I have had a lot of questions asked about bat houses lately, and I have decided I would put voice to these questions and answer them the best I can. We do build bat house or bat box for our customers on demand, but we do educate as to how these bat houses work.

” Why should I use a bat house or have one built in Austin?”

Answer is basically simple. To have a bat house built in a neighborhood can be a good thing. A bat house can give sanctuary for bats that would other wise choose a structure such as a house or business building, if placed correctly and built correctly. Though typically when a person or business decides to think about bat house installation and building or placing them it is usually after they have or have had a bat issue in their own house or business.

Often after bat issues are corrected or a bat exclusion is performed and a bat house is erected it seems that bats will not use the bat house as a refuge. There are measures that can be placed to help secure the bats to the bat house, but the wildlife or bat removal expert needs to be aware of your plans in order to take the right steps to increase your chances that the bat colony may take to the bat house or bat box.

“Will Bats winter over in a bat house or bat box?”

This is a tricky question because bats are mammals and are not cold blooded and it really has to do with where you are located and how harsh the winter is in your location, for example in Northern states the bat colony will not because they can not withstand the cold temperatures in the bat house or bat box and would freeze to death. Bats go into a semi torpor but can not with stand freezing temperatures. In the most southern states this can be a possibility.

“Can I buy a bat house online?”

You can buy many different types of bat house online and most are ok or even great. They come with instructions and if followed you will have your very own bat house in your backyard, but a bat house is just a wood box to a bat colony unless you give them signs or a reason to use it.

“How do bats find a bat house?”

How do bats find their way back time and time again into a house attic space? the answer is memory, pheromones such bat guano, bat urine and other bat pheromones. Our Wildlife removal and animal control guys simply use this knowledge and apply it to helping your chances at a bat colony using your bat house as a home.

I hope this answered some of your questions about bat houses and if you have more questions about bat removal in Austin give us a call!

Question: I found a bat in my house, what do I do?

Answer: Call a wildlife removal company that specializes in bat removal. If at all possible try to keep your eye on the bat. Some people are very scared of bats, For these people I would say close all doors so as to minimize were the bat can get to. This will make it easier for the bat pro to find the bat.

Question: Why are bats living in my attic?

Answer: As our civilization grows new construction is surely to follow. The building of new homes and neighborhoods slowly diminish the natural habitat of bats and eventually the bat colony will adapt or evolve. Once the bat colony realizes that the bat colony can survive in an attic, space or even chimney, the bat colony will take advantage of any small opening or gap to enter the structure.

Attics tend to be a hot spot when dealing with bat removal. Attic spaces make an ideal area. Attic spaces make for great protection against the elements and potential predators. Bats in your attic are simply trying to adapt or evolve to protect it’s species.

Question: Where did these bats come from?

Answer: Since most bats eat insects, evolutionists have traditionally taught that bats evolved from primitive insectivores, as did shrews, moles, etc. Fruit-eaters merely modified their diet due to ecological pressures.

Then in the early ’80s J. D. Smith (Smith pp. 347-365) suggested that megabats and microbats evolved separately, because there are many physiological differences between the two other than just size. Microbats have a complicated shoulder joint and a claw only on the thumb, for example, while megabats have a simple shoulder joint but a claw on both the thumb and first finger. Micros use echo-location, while macros mainly rely on their keen eyesight. Micro teeth are designed for prey, while mega teeth grind plant parts. Megabats can live only in the tropics, needing a year-round food supply; many microbats have the ability to hibernate through cold winters.
Question: How do I get rid of bats?

Answer: The best way to rid yourself of a unwanted bat colony in your house is to hire a professional that is trained in true bat removal and bat control techniques to ensure a safe and humane bat proofing process.

A bat exclusion is the only sure fire way to get rid of bats. A One Way Bat Door is the equipment most bat control experts use. It is extremely effective if installed correctly.

Question: Who do I look for to get rid of theses bats in my attic?

Answer : We highly recommend The Wildlife Professionals for all of your wildlife removal and animal control issues.

Question: When do bats have babies? And why can’t I have bats removed?
Depending on the severity of the season, the species and the region a professional bat control operator can advise the best time for bat removal and bat exclusion.

Most bats are federally protected and it is illegal to exclude bats or close bats out when there is a great possibility that the young bats could be affected or even killed by the process. Bats are extremely important to our ecosystem. Never try to kill a bat colony!
