Do you like mosquitoes? How about gnats? These bugs can be an annoyance, especially during the hotter months in Florida when they rapidly spawn. The best thing you can have around, then, are bats because they feed on such pesky bugs. But, that doesn’t mean that bats belong inside your workplace. That’s when they begin to cause you problems rather than solving some of them. Here are some preventative measures you can take to make sure the bats stay outside, where they can do their job and not interrupt yours.
- Don’t leave doors or windows open for long periods of time.
- Make sure there are no easy access points through vents, wiring, or plumbing.
- Hire a professional bat control expert to identify access points and seal them.
Bats are not aggressive creatures, and will not chew their way into buildings like rodents. Instead, they will roost in quiet, secluded spots. As long as your building is sealed up, you won’t have to worry about bats getting inside and disturbing your business.
Commercial Bat Removal
Maybe it’s too late for you to put bat prevention methods into practice — the bats have already roosted in your place of business. Whatever you do, don’t take any drastic measures. It is illegal to remove bats during certain times of the year, and many species of bats are protected by Florida Law. You don’t want your business to be liable for breaking Florida wildlife laws. But, you can’t just let the bats stay. They can cause the following issues for your business:
- Disrupt your workday
- Scare off customers
- Interfere with your workers
- Damage your building with urine and guano
