Many home owners have problems with bats, and wish to know how to prevent them from using their homes and attics as habitat. Any wild animal will live in an area if that area provides suitable food and shelter requirements. Oftentimes, our suburban homes do offer such requirements. Bats love to roost in a warm, safe attic, and they can fly right outside for their food, insects. Oftentimes, homes near water are susceptible, because bats like to have a drink first, then fly around catching insects, and water can also attract insects, but sometimes bats will roost in a building nowhere near water, and will fly long distances to drink and feed. Once bats have established a roost in a building, they will stay there. If they migrate out during certain times of the year for better temperatures, they will come back the next year. In fact, they will return year after year, and the young born every summer will return year after year as well. Bats will live in an established and suitable area for hundreds of years if the proper conditions hold. You can't just hope that they'll go away.

There is no good product on the market that really works for bat prevention. Some people will buy cheap and gimmicky devices that don't work, and some people, with good intentions, even buy expensive bat houses in the hopes of keeping away bats, but these tactics don't work. If you have a bat problem that you need to get rid of, the best bet is to hire a pro. This is not usually a good field for amateurs, so if you need such services, it might be best to call a professional from the linked list of nationwide pros. Unfortunately, there's no good product or bat repellant to keep bats away. Taking care of a bat problem requires professional work - both professional bat exclusion and professional bat prevention.
