Have you seen bats roaming in your home lately? It’s winter in New England and where else is warmer than your home for bats? Bats tend to hibernate in warm and dark places in your home in the New England area from October through April. If you see a bat, there is a potential that a colony might be found in your home.
If you hear squeaking sounds, they might be moving up and down behind the wall. Hibernating bats are also responsive to the temperature inside a house. If the temperature in the attic drops, they might move to another part of the house that is much warmer than where they are staying. They might move around if the temperature gets really warm, tricking them to believe that spring has arrived. Like all other mammals, they would also consistently fly out to get water.
In America, bats are the most common cause for rabies and it is important to get rid of them as soon as you see them in your home. It is important to not attempt to capture or trap bats by yourself as you do not want to get contaminated by diseases. Contact Baystate Wildlife now to have the expert handle it for you.
