Choosing Green Pest Control Products

After my niece had a serious reaction to pest control, I realized that we were up against a few big problems. For starters, I knew that we needed to identify the types of pests that we were struggling with, and then we needed to find green products that would be safe for her to be around. It was a little bit of a challenge at first, but within a few weeks we found a company that offered the perfect line of products. I wanted to start a blog completely committed to pest control, so I started this site. Read more about keeping your family safe here.

Do You Have Bats In Your Belfry?


Bats can be very useful. They eat at least their body weight in bugs every night and that's a good thing, especially when they are eating mosquitoes. However, that usefulness doesn't outweigh the problems when you think that you may have bats in your house and nesting in your attic. If you are worried about bats in your belfry, there are things that you can do that will help you deal with the problem. 

Watch for Bats

The first thing you need to do is to definitely confirm whether or not you have bats. There are a few ways that you can do this. One is that you can go outside and look around your house at dusk and dawn. That's when the bats are most active and are flying in and out of their roosts. What you want to do is to have a couple of adults walk around your house and look at what they might see. You will want to be aware that you might not see a whole lot of bats streaming out of your attic and flying around the neighborhood. You may only see a bat or two or three coming out of your attic, and it can be hard to see one or two bats flying around in the twilight after sunset and before sunrise. It may take you a couple of days of looking to see if you can see them. Also be aware that bats may not leave your attic in the winter because of the weather. They want to be warm, which is part of why they are in your attic. 

Protected Status

One thing you are going to be aware of when you are trying to get rid of the bats in your house is that many bat species have some kind of federal or state protection. That means that you are going to need to check out what the regulations are in your area and what species are covered. The various regulations can make it slightly harder for you to get rid of bats because you will have to make sure that you use non-lethal methods to get rid of the bats, but they will still leave plenty of options open to you to get the bats out of your house. 

Bats may be useful and have an important job to do in the entire ecosystem, but that doesn't mean that you want them in your house. Schedule bat removal to solve the issue.
