Is it one bat or many? If you answer yes to the following questions, there’s a good chance you’re dealing with a bat colony:
- Have you identified guano anywhere in your home or office? Bat droppings are shiny (due to undigested insect and mosquito wings) and break apart, unlike hardened mice/rat droppings. Check attics and chimneys to start.
- Have you seen bats flying away from your home or office just after sunset?
- Do you hear strange sounds (like scratching) coming from your attic or other areas of the home or office?
- Do you smell ammonia in your space?
