I have some great news for those who have been living with bats in your attic during the annual bat exclusion “closed season”. The closed season, which began April 16th, will officially end August 14th. I am very excited that we can finally help those customers who have been patiently waiting for the “season” to open and get the bats out of their attic for good!
Most people are unaware of this closed season and why it is so important to one of Florida’s most beneficial endangered animals. So why is the closed season, also known as the “maternity season”, so important? It’s important because female bats give birth to their young during May and June. These young bats begin to fly around six weeks of age, and cannot leave their roost until then. The closed season helps prevent professional wildlife trappers and pest control companies from unintentionally killing these young bats by trapping them inside a structure.
Do you think you have a bat problem? Bat exclusions should only be done by a licensed and experienced professional who knows and understands the laws that protect these bats. Here in Florida there are numerous laws regarding bat exclusion products and methods, and these laws carry harsh penalties for those that break them. These laws also allow the state to charge both the service provider AND the homeowner for improperly performed bat exclusions. To learn more about these laws, click here.
