Tri-Colored Bat Removal and bat control NJ

The habitat of these bats are typically caves, tunnels, and minds because this is where they hibernate. They are often found in the same sites as little brown bats, though the tricolored bats tend to go into the deeper portions, where temperatures and humidity are higher. During the summer, tricolored bats will be found in trees, Barnes, rock crevices, as well as other buildings.


Bats will typically hibernate between the months of October and April. It is between May and September that you will likely find the biggest problems with these rodents because they are now more active.


Why Do They Pose a Problem?


No one actually wants to deal with the bat problem in their home or in their business. The tricolored bats will typically eat small insects, and so while they are an important part of the habitat, they can also provide a significant amount of problems within buildings.


They can cause problems within attics, roofs and other structures because of forcing their way in. They are going to find any way to get inside in order to reach the warm and humid areas. As they continue to go into the hole that they found, that whole may get larger, and other pests may make their way into the building as well.


Bats typically aren’t going to bite unless they are provoked. Still, they aren’t the kind of animal that you want to keep around the house simply because they could bite – and there is no telling what kinds of diseases they may carry.


Further, there is the issue of bat guano, otherwise known as dung. When the guano dries, it breaks apart into a powdery substance. If this powder becomes airborne, there is the possibility of inhaling it – and a respiratory disease known as hisplasmosis can result. This is one of the most severe dangers when dealing with bat guano, and there are plenty of other problems as well.


The guano as well is the urine can cause a smell, stain, and contaminate walls and insulation, and much more. Over time, the guano can add up to a significant weight, causing issues with the structures. There have been issues with bat infestation that have led to a roof collapsing because of the sheer amount of guano that had accumulated over the years.


Cleaning up the bat droppings is not something that can be done by just anyone. It’s classified as hazardous material and pets, children, and uneducated adults should never touch it. The risk of exposure is considered very high, and therefore it requires professionals to come and clear it all out.


Control for Tri-Colored Bats


Once you identify that there are bad, and that you have tricolored bats in your home or other building, you want to make sure that you get them out. There are some things that can be done.


One of the first things you want to do is prevent bats ROM getting inside the buildings. This includes going through and ceiling every last hole. If there is a hole within the roof or access to the attic, they are likely going to be able to get inside. Around the roof, you want to look at the area where the soffit meets the roof as well as fascia boards, chimneys, vents, and loose tiles.


At night is the best time to do the seal of work simply because it’s easy to see the nooks and crannies. It is also possible to see the bats flying in and out around the various openings – giving you a clue as to where the problems are.


The best way to overcome a bat problem is to prevent entry within the structure – and this can take some work.


Ultimately, it is important to contact a bat removal expert in order to take care of the problem. You don’t want to kill the bats because it can be damaging to be habitat as a whole. And while the species are not endangered, they are of special concern across many states. A professional will be able to get the problem under control and provide you with ways to prevent the bats from getting into your building in the future.

Tri-Colored Bat


Bats can be a problem for homeowners as well as businesses. It is important to know how to control them so that they do not continue to pose a problem for your location. These bats can be quite a nuisance, particularly on the eastern side of the United States.


What are Tri-Colored Bats?


The tricolored bat has also been known as the eastern pipistrelle. They are found all across the eastern side of the United States as well as into southern Canada. The first discovery was made in St. Peter, Minnesota in 1934. These bats have never been found in large numbers, and a maternity colony has never been located.


These bats are one of the smallest species of bats found in the United States. They have a dorsal color that ranges from yellowish to grayish brown and sometimes even reddish-brown. Their underside is slightly paler than what is found on the dorsal. They have a tricolored pelage that makes it easier to identify them from the myotis species.
