Bat Removal from the Attic
Bat removal from the attic space of a home is a very common call that most animal removal and control companies receive in the late spring to late fall time frame. This is when the bats are the most active and seem to be almost everywhere! Bats are colonized animals and seem to be very at home in really dark hot places such as the attic space of a house. This is where the female bat will have her babies and the attic area will act as a incubator of sorts. When bats are born, they are naked, meaning they have no fur at all. The mother bat does not have enough weight or fur to keep the baby warm by passing on body heat. So what does a mother bat do??? Simple she has her babies where it is already hot...in your attic!
