Learning Bat Behavior & Keeping Bats Out: What Works?

  • Virginia Beach residential bat controlDo bats eat a lot of insects? YES! A bat's diet is primarily insects — bats are integral to keeping the insect population down.
  • Do bats often get in homes? Bats are commonly found in your home, looking for a safe place to raise their babies.
  • Where are bats found inside your home? A colony of bats has a tendency to congregate in areas like the chimneys, or your attic. They're mostly nocturnal, so you won't usually see bats during the day. Special care and caution are necessary when handling and removing bats from the home.
  • So how do I keep bats out? A common removal method is one-way doors — this way, the bats can get out but can't get back in.
  • What can Critter Control do to help? To make sure your residential bat control issues never happen again, our trained technicians will implement exclusion techniques like adding roof seals or installing vent screens, chimney caps, and more. Read more about our process in the Keep Bats Out section below.

Bat Damage

  • Regardless of their tiny size, bats can (and will) create an enormous amount of residential damage. A large colony of bats in your house is a very unfortunate and potentially dangerous situation. 
  • A colony of bats can be very dangerous. The accumulation of bat feces can lead to dangerous diseases for humans.
  • Bat feces can leave behind pungent odors and stains that are difficult to remove, especially without professional help.

Critter Control's Virginia Beach technicians are experienced in bat removal and ready to clean up and repair any mess that the bats created, like cleaning up feces, replacing soiled insulation, and repair any entry holes and apply roof seals.
