37. Plug the holes

Last edited Tue Aug 28, 2018, 06:43 AM - Edit history (1)

I'm plugging bat holes in our church basement where the bats in the attic follow air currents through the walls to fly in the at night. Look for small round and long flat hard, black scat for evidence.

Look for:
. Gaps around pipes- fill with foam (Fire break foam near heat), plaster, or a pipe collar
. Seal around your range hood with foam
. Look for holes the size of a dime and fill with plaster (drywall mud)
. Cover plates on wall plugs
. Investigate ultrasonic noise generators to plug in around your house and attic
. Watch at sundown to see whet bats are exciting your house and make one-way exits for the holes (window screen socks); wait two weeks.
. Make sure bats evacuate your attic before you seal their entry holes and wait until September and the babies are grown.

It takes a while but persistence is successful! Good luck!
