Bat Entrance Point, Fort Wayne, Indiana - Bat Exclusion
Fort Wayne animal control and bat removal. Bat season is upon us. Bats will enter into homes through the smallest construction openings. This picture shows a common bat entrance point. As time goes by, a lot of chimneys begin to settle and slowly pull away from the house creating a perfect place for bats to enter . From there, bats will crawl up into the soffit. That's when we get the "bats in the attic" call. Once the bats are in the attic they can move freely up and down wall cavities or wall chases. We have actually witnessed bats go through a 1/2" x 1/2" opening. It is amazing how small of a gap bats can come and go through. Keep an eye on your chimney, you may want to caulk any construction gaps before you have bats in your house.
