Bats carry many diseases and pose serious health risks when living in close proximity to humans. Preventing bats from entering buildings is crucial for humans and bat safety.

What Will Keep Bats Away?

The main way to keep bats from entering your property is to seal any possible entry points and reinforce the structure. Bats love holes, cracks and crevices in walls and ceilings. They can even tear through old screens. Our fully trained team does site inspections to assess all possible entry points.

We reinforce holes and soffit gaps to prevent bats from returning. Our team’s decision sometimes involves replacing the entire soffit line with an alternative material, such as perforated soffit Hardie Board. This will prevent re-entry. These steps are some of the most effective options to protect against bats. For every solution, we will make it look as good as new.

Our trained biologist can continue to watch the property to manage the situation. Urban Jungle offers a one-year warranty on our exclusions and sealing jobs.

Do Bat Deterrents Work?

Bat deterrents are usually the least effective methods to prevent bats from entering your home. Bat deterrents that claim to work include strong essential oils, mint, eucalyptus, spearmint, cinnamon, high-frequency sound emitters and bright lights.

While you can try these methods, we recommend reinforcing and sealing all structures on your property that could be possible entry points.
