Instructions for Installing a Bat House

Bats can certainly be a nuisance problem if they find their way into our homes and buildings. However, bats also serve a highly important ecological purpose that benefits us, our society, other animals, and the entire surrounding ecosystem. Not only do they consume millions on flying insects (like mosquitoes and gnats) each night, which serves as excellent pest control for us and our crops, their guano helps with pollination, soil fertilization, and more. In turn, the benefits bats offer support our local farming and agriculture enterprises in our communities, and enhances the local economy. They also reduce the quantity of mosquito bites we get on a late summer evening.

If you want to do your part to support local bat populations in your area, you can choose to install a bat house on your property. Continue reading to learn the proper guidelines and recommendations for bat house safety, including instructions on how to install a bat house.

Obtaining a Bat House

You can purchase blueprints online and build your own bat house, but only do so if you are a highly familiar with wood work and building. There are many complex and vital factors that must be taken into consideration when constructing a bat house, so it requires a higher level of skill and experience. If you are not a seasoned carpenter, it is recommended to simply purchase a pre-constructed bat house, online or at your local home and garden store. These are already constructed in adherence to all best practices and humane awareness in the industry.

Installing a Bat House

It is important to never install a bat house near your own house or a neighbor’s house. Furthermore, never mount bat houses directly onto trees. Bats, especially pups, are too vulnerable to predators and other dangers if roosting on the side of a tree. Also, the house does not get enough sunlight to keep it warm inside since it is blocked by the tree’s canopy, and tree limbs can get in the way of a bat’s entry and exit point. Instead, mount your bat houses on metal poles, wooden posts, pivot poles, or on a side of a building, like a shed or barn.

To install your bat house, simply follow the manufacturers instructions provided. If you are building your own bat house, follow these tips:

☑ Choose an area that faces either East or South, and receives 6 to 8 hours of sunlight.

☑ Keep the bat house at least 20 to 30 feet away from obstructing branches and tree limbs.

☑ Place the house in a spot near a natural body of water, like a stream, creek, or pond.

☑ Be sure the bat house is 10 to 20 feet off the ground or tallest plant.

How to Relocate a Bat

Handling a bat is never recommended. But sometimes, homeowners are left no choice but to intervene in moments of emergencies. If you have come across a bat in the house or other area of your property, and cannot wait for professional bat abatement services to arrive, it is important to understand how to safely handle and relocate a bat, for the sake of the bat’s protection, as well as your own.

Continue reading to learn what you need to know about handling a bat, including Kentucky bat tampering and trapping laws that may concern your situation.

Bat in the House

If you have a bat in the house, you can try the escape and evade method. This involves opening all the windows and doors in the vicinity of the bat, while closing off all others, in order to encourage the bat to simply fly outside on its own. Be sure to separate everyone from the area of the bat, including pets.

Bat in the Attic

If you have a bat in the attic, try the escape and evade approach mentioned above. If you cannot access your attic well enough to open a window or door, you can also try bat abatement service. A professional bat control technician will inspect your property for the bat’s entrance, and then implement methods to make the bat leave and seal up the entry way.

Bat on the Ground

If you find a bat on the ground, whether it is a baby or injured, the best practice is to leave it alone and let nature take its course. However, if you want to relocate it, try using the shoe box method. Place an empty shoe box on top of the bat, put on a pair of heavy-duty work gloves, and then use a shovel or garden spade to gently scoop the bat up.

Next, relocate the bat to a farther-away habitat where it will not pose a threat to anyone. Furthermore, never attempt to rehabilitate an injured bat, nor keep it as a pet. Not only are there laws against this, as exotic animal domestication requires specific government permits and more, it also poses several health and safety threats to you, your family, and pets.

Mother Bats  

Sometimes mother bats carry their pups on their backs, and sometimes, there are too many clung to them. In this case, a mother bat cannot take launch and fly. If you find a mother bat with babies clinging to her, your only approach should be to contact a local wildlife removal and control company for professional intervention. They have the proper resources to ensure the safety and rehabilitation of the bat family.

Dead Bat

If you find a dead bat, whether indoors or outside on your lawn, you can use the same shoe box method given for finding bats on the ground, minus the shoe box. Since the bat is dead, it is not going to attempt to escape, so you do not need to contain it. However, be sure to wear protective gloves and relocate the bat to a faraway area where it can safely decompose.

Basically, what seems like an act of protecting your property may actually be against the law.

This scenario is made even more serious considering 3 of Kentucky’s native bat species are federally endangered, and thus, protected on a federal level. This means that a person can face felony charges for tampering with one of these species. If you have nuisance bat activity around your property, be sure to educate yourself on what you can and cannot do within the limits of the state and federal laws governing bats.

The Laws Surrounding Wild Bats

According to KY.Gov, the official website of the Commonwealth of Kentucky, all bats in the state are protected by law. What does this mean for you? It means that it is illegal to trap, domesticate, breed, harm, or kill a bat. Furthermore, there are no intoxicants, or repellents, that are legal for bat control applications. There are exceptions to this law, for instance, in the case that it is proven that bats are damaging a property.

Possible Penalties

If an individual is caught tampering or harming bats, they can face both criminal and civil penalties. This includes jail time, hefty fines, restitution, community service, banishment, loss of professional licenses, loss of gun privileges, and more. It depends on the severity and scope of the incident.

To Get Rid of Nuisance Bats

Should I Be Threatened By the Presence of Bats?

Local bat populations serve a vital ecological importance, which in turn, provides us with several economic benefits as a society. However, when bats get too close, they can inadvertently become a nuisance. If you have notices an exponential presence of bat activity around your house or business, it is important to ensure your property is safeguarded against intrusion and safety hazards.

Continue reading to learn which types of risks nuisance bats pose to you and your property, as well as, how to get rid of them in accordance to local ordinances and best practices.

Louisville Bat Removal and Control Services
Bats should only be handled by licensed professionals.

Disease

The most important reason why you do not want bats too close to your property is the risk of disease. Not only are bats known carriers of the Rabies virus, which once contracted is 100% fatal, they can also possess and transmit several other types of diseases, health complications, and outbreaks. Such risks include Histoplasmosis, which is an upper respiratory disease contracted as a result of toxic spores that grow on bat guano. See our blog, “What is Histoplasmosis?” to learn more about this disease, including who it affects the most and how to prevention tips. Additional risks include lice, mites, ticks, fleas, and other parasites.

Structural Damage

Bats in the Kentucky regions are very small. So small in fact, most can squeeze themselves through an opening as little as 3/8ths of an inch, or .037 inches. To give you an idea of how small this is, consider a dime, which is around .053 inches thick. This means that the tiniest opening in window screens, siding, roof shingles, crumbling mortar, and more, can be an open door for bats to come inside and roost. Furthermore, bats are not solitary, so where there’s one, there’s typically handfuls more. Once inside, bats soil every surface with their droppings, which can result in stains, leaks, wood rot, and all types of costly structural damages.

How to Safely Get Rid of Bats

As mentioned before, bats are important ecologically, which is why they are also protected under law. It is illegal to trap, harm, or kill bats in Kentucky. For this reason, it is necessary to hire a licensed and insured wildlife abatement company that provides non-lethal bat removal services in your town. Coming across a dead, dying, or abandoned bat is also common if you have bats around your property, so you should know how to respond if it ever happens to you. See our blogs, “What to Do If You Find a Dead Bat” and “What To Do If You Find a Bat on the Ground” to be prepared.

The Basic Principles of Echolocation in Bats

By now, you are well-informed that bats are not blind. In fact, they see quite well. Their echolocating abilities are more than just a visual guide; they are a biological instrument that provides an advantage in many areas of Microchiroptera bat life. Here in this blog, you will learn the fundamental facts surrounding echolocation and bats, including which bats are not equipped with natural echolocating abilities.

Louisville Bat Removal and Control 502-553-7622
Louisville Bat Removal and Control 502-553-7622

What is Echolocation?

Dictionary.com defines echolocation as, “the general method of locating objects by determining the time for an echo to return and the direction from which it returns, as by radar or sonar.” But in terms of animals, like bats, they better define it as, “the sonar-like system used by (…) animals to detect and locate objects by emitting usually high-pitched sounds that reflect off the object and return to the animal’s ears or other sensory receptors.”

In plain language, echolocation is like sonar, in that you let out a sound wave, wait for the sound wave to come back to you, and then use that data to define an environmental guide for whatever application you need.

Bats are not the only animals who use echolocation; dolphins and whales are well-known echolocating species, as well as, some birds and species of shrew, and possibly even hedgehogs, are suspected of using the same type of biological gift. For these animals, the primary purposes of echolocation are coordination and direction, evading obstacles, hunting or obtaining food, and interacting socially.

How Does it Work?

Although it is not yet fully understood by the scientific community how echolocation in bats works, but we do have a basic theory. Scientists and researchers have ultimately determined that bats have built-in vocal chords that vibrate when they move air past them.

They emit these extremely high-pitched sounds from their mouths (or sometimes noses) as they fly, which in turn, travel through the air as a sound wave. These traveling sound waves have energy that bounces off anything it comes into contact with.

After emitting these extremely high-pitched sound waves, bats listen carefully for their return, and use the time data to configure their surroundings more precisely. They use this to dart and dive for flying insects, better navigate obstructions, and more.

Dealing With Nuisance Bats?

Although bats are an important part of our Eco-system, and even our economy, they can sometimes pose certain threats if their colonies get too close. If you suspect you have issues with bats, or a bat infestation in the attic or other area of your home, contact our DNR licensed and insured professionals at 553-502-7622 for safe and humane bat control service in Louisville, Kentucky and its surrounding counties.

Do Bats Live Near My House?

Are you concerned about nuisance bats? If so, there are plenty of precautions you can take to protect your assets from animal damage, as well as your loved ones from exposure to infectious diseases and injuries. But first, assess whether or not bats are actually a threat in your area. Chances are, there are local bat populations that exist within your community; however, whether or not they will actually affect your home or property largely depends on your environmental surroundings.

Continue reading to learn how to spot bat activity in and around your property, and what you can do to protect your home and loved ones from nuisance bats.

Louisville Bat Removal and Control 502-553-7622
Louisville Bat Removal and Control 502-553-7622

Environmental Factors

As mentioned, whether or not bats are indeed a possible threat depends on certain factors, namely environmental ones. You see, here in Kentucky, bats are insectivores, which means they eat a diet of insects, mostly flying sorts like gnats, flies, moths, and of course, mosquitoes. They also eat termites, beetles, and several others types of insects, but the flying bugs will easily give away a bat’s location.

Why? Well these insects typically group together in large swarms, which are very visible during dusk. And where do these bugs like to fly? Around water, like streams, creeks, ponds, lakes, and rivers. So if your home is located near a body of water such as these, you can be sure there are bats living nearby that eat up all the swarming insects each night.

To see for yourself, go outside right before the sun sets, when the light is still bright, but receding. Then look above an area of water for a swarm of insects. Be patient, and wait for any signs of bats. If you see a bird-like animal swooping down and darting through the swarm of insects, you are witnessing a bat eating its dinner! They are actually the world’s greatest built-in pest control because a single bat can consume more than 1,000 mosquitoes in just one night! You can thank them for your comfortable backyards and picnic areas.

Want to learn other ways to spot bat activity in and around your house? See our blog, “Top 5 Indications That You Have a Bat Infestation” to develop a checklist that can be investigated for clues.

Does Your Attic Smell Like Ammonia?

Continue reading to learn why the smell of ammonia is a common sign of a bat infestation, and what to do if you have bats in the attic in Louisville.

Bat Droppings

Bat droppings are known as guano. Guano accumulates in mass amounts in the case of a bat infestation, mostly due to the fact that bats are not solitary animals and often come in large numbers. Furthermore, a single bat can consume more than its own body weight in insects each night (up to 1,000 insects), which can lead to a load of droppings. Needless to say, bat guano is a big, unhygienic mess to have on your hands, and must be remediated with haste.

Potential Dangers of Guano

Not only is bat guano unsanitary, it is also toxic and poses several structural and safety hazards. Foremost, overtime bat guano grows fungal spores that can cause a serious respiratory disease known as Histoplasmosis. These fungal spores are caused by a fungus known as Histoplasmosis Capsulatum, which upon inhalation, causes flu-like symptoms, such as coughing and difficulty breathing.

Although not contagious, it can be easily contracted if precaution is not taken, especially among infants, elderly, and those with weakened or suppressed immune systems. See our blog, “What is Histoplasmosis?” to learn details about this illness, including causes, diagnosis, treatment, prevention, and more.

Aside from Histoplasmosis and structural damages, there are several more dangers and concerns surrounding bat droppings that you must take into consideration when dealing with nuisance bats. Read our blog, “Can Bat Guano Hurt Me?” to understand these risks more.

The Smell of Ammonia

As for smell, bat guano accumulations are commonly described as having an odor similar to ammonia, which is found in high concentrations in cat urine. A most unpleasant and strong smell, ammonia-like odors in your attic are a blatant indication of a bat infestation. If you smell ammonia, or any other foul odor in your attic, contact a DNR licensed Louisville bat removal company for information on what to do and how to get rid of them.

Learn All About the Tricolored Bat Formerly Known as the Eastern Pipistrelle

There are 16 known species of bats found here in Kentucky. This makes us a very lucky state since bats serve such a high ecological and economic importance! Of these 16 species of bat, 14 are categorized as permanent residents, making us even luckier, but 3 are unfortunately listed as federally-endangered. For these reasons and more, it is important to preserve and protect our local bat species as much as we can. Read our recent blog, “How to Be Bat Friendly” to learn how you can do your part to contribute to Kentucky bat preservation.

Some of the most common species of bat found in Kentucky include the Virginia big eared bat (Corynorhinus townsendii virginianus), the Indiana bat (Myotis sodalis), the gray bat (Myotis grisescens), the Seminole bat, the Mexican free-tailed bat, Northern Long-eared Bat (Myotis septentrionalis), and much more. In fact, read our recent blog, “Most Common Species of Bat Found in Kentucky” to view the complete list.

In this blog, we would like to spotlight a special bat called the Tricolored bat, which was formally known as the Eastern Pipistrelle. Why the name change? What is this bat like? Continue reading to learn some fun and interesting facts about this singular species of bat found right here in Kentucky.

Louisville Bat Removal and Control 502-553-7622
Eastern Pipistrelle (Pipistrellus subflavus)

Tricolored Bat (Perimyotis subflavus)

The Tricolored bat was initially referred to as the “Eastern Pipistrelle”, or Pipistrellus subflavus. The name was modified because it was technically an inaccurate classification since mounting evidence showed that the Eastern Pipistrelle is a much more distance relative than once thought. As result, the species was removed from the scientific genus Pipistrellus, and placed in its own genus, Perimyotis.

❦ Description

The name gives a good description of what the Tricolored bat looks like. It typically has reddish brown to yellowish brown fur, lighter under bellies, and black wing flesh. But it is their back fur that gives them their name because it has gray at the base, tan in the mid-section, and dark at the tips. On average, the Tricolored bat weighs between 4 to 10 grams, is around 3 and half inches in length, and has a wingspan of 9 and half inches.

❦ Range and Habitat

As mentioned, the Tricolored bat calls Kentucky its home, but generally only in the summer months and during migration. Other times, their range extends elsewhere. In fact, they have an impressive range, extending across the eastern United States and southeastern Canada, south into Central America, and even west into the central Great Plains. When it comes to a place to rest, Tricolored bats like to live alone or in small groups, and make their roosts in hollowed trees, abandoned mines, and caves near running bodies of water.

❦ Diet

Like most Microchiroptera bats, Tricolored bats are insectivores, which means they only eat insects. Their favorites include mosquitoes, gnats, dragonflies, moths, and anything else that flies around at night. A single bat can consume more than twice its body weight in insects in just one night. That adds up to an average of 1,000 insects per bat, per evening! That is incredible pest control for farmers, gardeners, crops, and more.

⊶ Install a Bat House

Bat houses are fun and supportive, all at the same time! See our blog, “The Benefits of Putting Up a Bat House” to learn just how wonderful having bat houses around your property can be, for both you and the local bat populations around town. There are several important rules and guidelines for installing a bat house, so be sure to learn what you need to know before getting started. Bat houses must be specifically constructed and hung. For example, you should not mount a bat house on a tree because it can put bats at risk of certain predators.

⊶ Respect Their Personal Space

Bats sometimes lose their way. They can either enter into an area they are not wanted, get lost from their mother, or even suffer an injury. As a result, it is common to come across a bat. If this ever happens, it is vital that you never attempt to move, touch, trap, harm, or kill a bat under any circumstances. Not only is it inhumane and potentially dangerous to you, it is also against the law. Some bat species that are native to Kentucky are listed as state and federally endangered. See our blog, “Most Common Species of Bat Found in Kentucky” to learn more about threatened bat species in our state. You may also benefit from our blog, “What to Do If You Find a Dead Bat” or “Here’s What to Do if You Have a Bat in the House” for guidance on similar situations.

⊶ Make Wellness Donations

If you want to show your support for both local and national bat populations, you can make wellness donations, money or time, to a bat conservation and Rabies management initiative, such as the Kentucky Wildlife Center, Cave and Karst Protection Program, Bat Conservation International, Merlin Tuttle’s Bat Conservation, the Broadbent Wildlife Sanctuary, and the Kentucky Fish & Wildlife Foundation.
