Wacky Pest Wednesday: Bats
Happy last-Wednesday-before-Halloween, Tri-County Pest Control fans, and welcome to our latest edition of Wacky Pest Wednesday! Please join us today as we go over a traditional Halloween pest: the bat. Enjoy!
In the lands of Transylvania, seeing a bat is on the list of the worst things that can happen to you…especially at night. One minute you see this critter flying along, and the next thing you know you wake up with two puncture marks on your neck—not a good start to the day, if you ask us.
If we specialized in vampire removal, then you can bet your Halloween candy haul that we would be there in a jiffy to defend your home with plenty of garlic and make sure that you have a supply of wooden stakes to use against the spooky supernatural being. However, the best we can do for you is to help keep the bats out of your home, which we feel is an implicit version of vampire-control. So hear these two very important tips, and you should be fine this Halloween:
- Be sure that there are no holes in your siding or screens, especially in the attic. Bats only come out at night, and they may want to take refuge in your home if the sun starts to come up and they can’t get back to their habitat in time, so by keeping your home on lockdown, you’ll be able to keep them out.
- Now, it’s imperative to remember that if a bat gets in your home, don’t try to go after it with a baseball bat or a wooden stake. Instead, give us a call, and so long as Dracula is still in bat form, we’ll be able to get it out of your home safely and humanely.
Halloween is undoubteldy a great time of year, but it pays to stay vigilant when it comes to pests. For all you know, that harmless bat you see on Halloween night may be the Count himself in disguise. Stay vigilant, and stay safe against the vampires…err, we mean bats.
Have a great pre-Halloween week!
