How do I know if I have bats in my home? Have you ever wondered how to tell if your home has become a bat haven? Keep reading, and we’ll go over some of the most common ways you can tell if you have a bat problem. Some of the most common places we find bats are in attics, eaves, and hanging around any other cool place at your home. Of the 1200+ species of bats, we only find a handful of them in the Charlotte area. Bats are nocturnal, although many times, we see them flying around just before sunset or even during the day when the weather is warm enough. Bats are beneficial to our environment, and some species are even protected by legislation. Some species can see very well, while others rely heavily on echolocation (sonar) to navigate their way around.
Bats found in Charlotte and the surrounding areas can typically enter a structure through as little as 3/8″ gaps. Inadvertently, our houses can create some excellent roosting sites. Open gable vents make a great home for bats.
