Management of bat bugs requires the eviction of the colony of bats which are the source of the insects. Exclusion of the bats will prevent future infestations as the bat bugs will ultimately die in the absence of their bat hosts. However, in the immediate period after bat removal, bat bug sightings may increase as they migrate in search of new hosts.
Evicting bats requires a very experienced person who is schooled in bat habits and respects the bat as a valued part of our ecosystem. It is very important to shut down exclusion work during the time when the young are too young to fly (August). The goal in exclusion is to block off all entry and exit holes except one. This hole is an exit-only and after a week or two the home can be inspected to be sure all bats have exited and this final hole can be sealed.
As part of our bat exclusion, guano clean-up and spraying for bat bugs can also be performed.

I barely avoided a disaster when my dog needed to go outside at around 1am this morning. These cute baby skunks were right outside the door. That could have been one stinky mistake. Skunks will try to avoid spraying but if they feel threatened all bets are off. The...
