Bats in your attic in Orlando are a nuisance, but you have to be careful how you handle them. There are 13 resident bat species in Florida. Though they can become a nuisance if they take up residence in your home in an attic, garage or other structure, it is illegal to kill bats in Florida. It is not legal to use pesticides or poisons to remove bats from your Florida home.
Get Rid of Bats in Your Belfry
If you have a bat problem in the Orlando area, please contact Critter Control® of Orlando. Our expert bat trappers will help eliminate bats from your home. The only legal way to repel bats from your home is the use of naphthalene or moth balls. However this does not work very well in keeping bats away from your home.
The best way to remove bats is through a practice called exclusion. Through exclusion, a one way device is used that allows bats to leave their roost within your home, but does not allow them to return. However, even this practice is closely monitored by State of Florida guidelines.
There are certain times of the year in which you cannot practice exclusion because it may coincide with the time young bats are born. There are also weather conditions under which exclusion may not be used because removing the bats from their roost may endanger them.
With so many protections on bats, we recommend you consult the experts at Critter Control® of Orlando to help remove bats from your home. Our wildlife experts know all the rules in the State of Florida regarding bat removal.
