How Bats Impact CT Properties

In Connecticut, bats can potentially cause notable property damage. At ProSource, we’re dedicated to providing effective solutions to safeguard your property from these invasive creatures.

Bats Love CT's Diverse Habitats

Bats thrive in Connecticut, thanks to the state’s diverse habitats and abundant food sources. The state’s climate, which ranges from warm summers to cold winters, coupled with extensive forests and a blend of urban and rural landscapes, provides ideal conditions for different bat species. From big brown bats roosting in our attics to little brown bats finding refuge in our buildings and caves, bats find Connecticut an ideal place to live, breed, and feed, making comprehensive bat control an essential aspect of property management in the state.

Bats: The Unseen Property Threat

Bats, while seemingly harmless, can cause significant property damage in Connecticut. They are known for taking up residence in attics, barns, and other structures, where their guano and urine can corrode building materials, stain surfaces, and even pose health risks. Additionally, bats can introduce parasites like ticks and mites into your home. Recognizing these potential issues, ProSource provides comprehensive bat control solutions to mitigate these damages and protect your property.

Key Bat Infestation Warning Signs

Recognizing the warning signs of a bat infestation is crucial to taking swift action. Bats are typically quiet, but you might hear slight squeaking or scratching noises in walls or ceilings, especially at dawn or dusk when bats are most active. Visual signs may include seeing bats flying around your property at dusk, finding guano (bat droppings) near a potential entry point, or noticing stains on walls or ceilings from bat urine. If you spot any of these signs, it’s essential to contact a bat control professional like ProSource to address the issue promptly.

Bat Control FAQs

In Connecticut, several species of bats can be found, but the most common ones that typically come into contact with humans are the Little Brown Bat and the Big Brown Bat. Little Brown Bats are small, typically weighing only a few ounces and with a wingspan of 8-11 inches. Big Brown Bats, as their name suggests, are larger with a wingspan of up to 13 inches. Both species are insectivorous, feeding on a variety of insects including mosquitoes, beetles, and moths. They’re known to roost in buildings and homes, particularly in attics and behind shutters or loose boards, which can sometimes lead to conflicts with homeowners. ProSource Pest Solutions can provide professional bat exclusion services to humanely remove bats from properties and prevent future infestations.
If bats have taken up residence on your property in Connecticut, professional bat control services are often required. Bats are beneficial animals that play a crucial role in our ecosystem by controlling insect populations. However, when they inhabit human dwellings, they can cause problems ranging from noise disturbances to potential health risks due to their droppings, known as guano, which can harbor harmful pathogens. Furthermore, bats are protected by law in Connecticut, and it’s illegal to harm or kill them, making self-removal risky and potentially unlawful. Professional bat control services like those offered by ProSource Pest Solutions use humane and legal methods to exclude bats from your property, clean and sanitize affected areas, and implement measures to prevent future bat infestations.
The frequency of bat control services can depend on several factors, including the size and accessibility of the bat colony, the specific species of bats involved, and the time of year. Bats are typically more active during the warmer months of spring and summer when they are breeding, and services may need to be more frequent during this period to manage the population effectively. However, in Connecticut, it’s illegal to exclude bats from a building during their maternity season, typically from May through August, to protect young bats who can’t yet fly. Outside this period, professional bat control services like ProSource Pest Solutions can perform exclusion work to prevent bats from re-entering your property. After the initial exclusion, regular maintenance checks can help ensure that exclusion measures remain effective and that no new colonies have established.
Bat infestations can occur when these animals find suitable conditions for roosting and raising their young. Bats are primarily attracted to areas that provide shelter and safety from predators. In urban and suburban settings, bats often find these conditions in human structures like houses, barns, bridges, and attics. These places offer a warm, quiet, and dark environment, which is ideal for bats. Small openings or gaps in building structures can allow bats to enter and establish a roost. Additionally, the presence of abundant food sources, like insects, can also attract bats to a particular area. ProSource Pest Solutions offers professional bat exclusion services to address these attractants, providing a comprehensive solution for bat infestations.
In Connecticut, bats are most active during the warmer months, specifically from late spring through early fall. This period coincides with their mating and maternity season. Bats hibernate during the winter months, often in caves or other secluded areas, and awaken in the spring when food sources, primarily insects, become more abundant. From spring through summer, bats are busy foraging for food, mating, and raising their young. By late fall, as temperatures drop and insect populations decline, bats will seek out hibernation sites and become less active. It’s during these active months that human-bat conflicts are most common, and professional bat control services like those provided by ProSource Pest Solutions can be particularly beneficial.
When bats take up residence in buildings or homes, they can cause several types of property damage. One of the primary issues is the accumulation of guano, or bat droppings. Over time, large amounts of guano can stain and damage building materials. Additionally, the weight of the guano can cause structural damage in extreme cases. Guano also presents a health hazard, as it can harbor fungal spores that cause the disease histoplasmosis. Bat urine can also cause stains and a strong, unpleasant odor. Besides these, bats can cause minor physical damage to buildings as they make their way in and out of their roosts, potentially weakening or damaging structures over time. At ProSource Pest Solutions, we offer comprehensive bat exclusion services to mitigate these issues, including humane bat removal, guano clean-up, and preventative measures to keep bats from returning.
When it comes to bat control in Connecticut, humane exclusion is the primary method used. This involves identifying and sealing all potential entry points in the building, except for a few key spots where bats are actively coming and going. One-way exclusion devices are then installed at these spots, which allow bats to exit but not re-enter. Once all bats are confirmed to have left the structure, these last spots are sealed. It’s important to note that this process should not be conducted during the bat maternity season (May-August) to avoid trapping flightless young bats inside. Other treatments can include the installation of bat houses to provide an alternative roosting location for the displaced bats. At ProSource Pest Solutions, we offer comprehensive bat control services that include inspection, exclusion, clean-up of bat guano, and prevention of future bat infestations. Our methods are effective, humane, and in accordance with state laws and regulations.
