Bat maternity season is coming to a close here in Raleigh and the surrounding area; bats are starting to become more active in their roosting sites found in homes and commercial structure throughout the triangle area. Pups “baby bats” are in the process of learning how to fly so many homeowners will start to see even more activity around their homes or buildings. During this time bats will leave their roosting sites at dusk and will seek food sources throughout the night returning in the early dawn hours to nestle down for the day. Homeowners will find droppings and could hear scratching or high pitch sounds coming from these roosting sites, with the maturity of the baby bats the colonies will start to cumulate more fecal matter due to the influx of feeding. If people see signs of bats in or around their homes or buildings they should take actions to rid their homes of these bats and take exclusion methods to prevent the bats from returning once excluded. Bats can be found in gable vents, ridge vents, construction gaps and chimneys of buildings. The first sign of bat infestations is their droppings that they leave behind when they are flying in and out of their roosting sites. Bat busters has been dealing with bat exclusion in the Raleigh area of North Carolina for the last 14 years and has excluded bats from homes and buildings in Raleigh, Cary, Apex, Wake Forest, Holly Springs, Chapel Hill, Durham and Fayetteville.
