Bat Prevention Tips: How To Keep Bats Away
Normally Little Rock bats are useful to be around. They eat hundreds of nasty bugs like mosquitoes and other insects. But if
you are really annoyed of them and they are residing at a place where you do not want them to be, follow the bellow
mentioned steps to get rid of them.
1. Preventing them from entering the house
First you have to choose the right time of the year to evacuate the Little Rock bats from your house as it is essential for their
overall survival. You have to find out if you have nursing colony in your house. Because if you remove the bats before
their pups can fly, then they will die in the building. After this, find the locale points of entry. You can do this by
looking for Arkansas bat droppings on or below the entrance.
The points of entry can be poorly-fitted or broken screens, missing shingles or loose tiles, the location where boards or
pipes can come loose.
Just seal all the entry points after finding them out and to prevent re-entry perform repeated sealing.
2. Using repellents
You can use repellents to repel all the bats where they commonly nest. First of the repellents which you can use is mothballs.
They are available in every household. Just put some mothballs in the middle of a cheesecloth and tie it to create a sack. Tie
sack to the area where they nest and the odour of the mothballs will repel them away.
Alternatively you can also use aerosol dog or cat repellent. Spray it to the area where all the Arkansas bats hang out. Remember to do
it during the day whenever they are not around.
3. Using nettings
There aren’t much effective Little Rock bat traps present in the market. But you can still solve the problem using one-way exclusion devices
like funnels or nettings. What you can do is that you can block several of the exits with mesh and install huge amount of exclusion
netting on other openings. So if the bats which are present in the household want to get out, they would have to crawl around the steel
mesh. Now this won’t trap the bats at all but once the Arkansas bats leave the area, they won’t be able to enter back again because of just one
So you do not need to necessarily kill the Arkansas bats at all because it is unethical, unlawful.
