Wacky Pest Wednesday: Bats
Happy Halloween-eve, Tri-County Pest Control fans, and welcome to our latest edition of Wacky Pest Wednesday! Please join us today as we go over a Halloween critter that you’re bound to see tomorrow night: the bat. Enjoy!
In the lands of Transylvania, seeing a bat at night is easily one of the worst things that can happen to you. 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 heat lamps. However, being a pest control company, we can help you keep the bats out of your house in the first place, so that you don’t need to worry about what they can do once they’re inside. As long as you stick to the following tips, you’ll be fine tomorrow night:
Close Up Holes
Be sure that there are no holes in your siding or screens, especially in the attic. Bats are nocturnal and thus they hate the sunlight, so if they’re flying around and sense the sun coming up, they may want to make a quick dash into your home to stay safe. The being said, if you keep your home tight with no entrances, there is less of a chance of them being able to do that.
Know When to Call:
Now, it’s important 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. 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 undoubtedly 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 fun, safe, and pest-free Halloween!
