Bats are not mysterious animals. They are mammals that we know much about. So, if you have a nuisance bat problem in or around your property, we can mostly likely tell you why. Continue reading to learn some pertinent facts about bats, including what attracts them to a property.
Why Bats Like Your House
Bats do not choose to locate in an area for no good reason. Bats like certain properties more than others because of what they have to offer. Most of all, bats are looking for areas that have a water source, ample food, privacy, security from predators, and climate control. In detail, here are the main features and conditions that attract bats to a house or commercial property:
⚠ There was Space. There is an area of your property that has ample space for bats to rest, such as accessible wall voids, crawl spaces, attics, vents, and similar places.
⚠ There is a Body of Water. Your property is located directly nearby a body of water, such as a lake, pond, river, creek, or stream. All mammals need water, and bats are not different.
⚠ There is Food. Your property has a lot of bugs. Bats are insectivores, and eat small flying insects, like mosquitoes, gnats, fleas, flies, and more.
⚠ Your Property is Structurally Vulnerable. Your property has small holes, gaps, and openings that bats can squeeze through to access inside. They only need 3/8th of an inch!
