How Do You Find the Areas Where Bats Are Getting In?
Want to know more about the ABC's of what this area under discussion has to propose to every human being who is willing to do things for themselves? During an inspection of the structure needing bat eviction I can determine the size of the colony and the best time of the year to remove the bats. During certain times of the year bats form nursery colonies. Depending on your geographical area the bats can only be removed when the young bats are able to fly. We like to use a one-way door or referred to as a valve.
These unidirectional escapes lets the bats escape not allowing the bats back in. This type of bat control eviction is approved by the organization Bat Conservation International. The utmost critical thing in bat removal from a residence is attention to all the little construction gaps. When closing all construction gaps, anything larger than an a quarter inch should be sealed. You have to seal the entire home to foil bats from getting back in. You will go as far as sealing any fault or construction crack. Ill need to exclude vents to keep bats out, let's start by closing off louver vents, attic vents, and ridge vents if bats can breach them using 1/4 inch screen. These can be painted to match, but I have found it blends in nicely left unpainted.
Inspect chimneys, bricks and mortar may be loose forming gaps. Look for gaps around where the chimney goes through soffit, carefully seal gaps and install a one-way door, if a bat way in is there. Ridge venting systems are feasible bat entrances. When looking at the ridge vent closely you'll usually find the plastic ridge vents deform leaving gaps, I've seen where varmints have chewed a gap in the vent. I will do away with the previous roof vent system and replace it. Primarily, you lay down 1/4 inch hardware cloth this keeps the bats, mice and squirrels from getting through. We will install a one-way bat door here also if the bats were using this area. Finally you'll finish the attic vent with a vent system referred to as Cobra vent, and then finish it with top cap shingles. We try to color match any calking, tin work and exclusion work to make it merge in as if we have not had to fix the construction defects. We use paintable caulking, the silicon based calks will tinge over time.
I build my own one-way doors. After ten years of bat control, I came up with an easy effective one-way valve for bat removal. You can purchase commercially produced bat cones but I personally think they are too short and have no airflow at the base where it is attached to the structure. These one-way doors are left on for about two weeks, to let bats leave. Then I can remove the one-way door and then block the entrance. After the bats have exited through the one-way doors the bats will try for several nights to get back in, by looking for another entrance, this is why sealing every possible entrance needs to be done. This is how to evict bats.Find out more by reading our other articles on this topic and other subjects we have written related to it.

How To Choose Between Roof Repair And Roof Replacement
Live Trapping Raccoons
Squirrels may be a major thorn in your side. They spend enormous amounts of time eating and digging in your garden (or bird feeder) - but what can you do?
You can take major steps and set out poison, but that has its drawbacks.
You can try and trap them, but that has its drawbacks too.
Or, you can try and repel them with simple things found around your house.
People have found all types of things that can be used for repelling squirrels, but as with all things - some work for some people and not for others.
If one home remedy does not work, try another. As said earlier, some people have more success with some than others.
As a last resort, there are commercial repellents which you can buy at your local hardware store. These obviously will cost more but are a stronger repellent and may have a better effect.

Everyone knows that weather damages roofing, but have you ever thought about the roof destruction caused by animals? Animals like squirrels, raccoons, birds, rats, bats, and other small creatures can cause enormous amounts of harm.
Squirrels will chew through anything! Things like wood, aluminum, electrical wires, shingles, vents, and insulation. Many times, squirrels will chew through shingles and use insulation, drywall, wood, and more to build nests in roofs and attics. These nests can extend several feet, and large amounts of dry nesting combined with the squirrels' wiring chewing causes an extreme fire hazard. Also, squirrels attract ticks and fleas which begin to accumulate in their nests and move on to people and pets in the home. To get rid of squirrels, it is not as simple as removing adult squirrels and patching up holes. They will only come back and tear through the holes again, especially if they have young in their nests. You have to remove the nests, adult squirrels, baby squirrels, and completely seal the building to prevent entry again.
Many animals are capable of doing damage to roofs and buildings, and for some animals it is extremely common. If you notice spots of destruction or entry in your roof, rid your home of these animals, and hire a roof repair service to make sure repairs are completed properly and that it won't happen again.
