The colonies of the bats can become too large and they may sleep the entire day, the following are the method that you can use to know if you have the bats in your home. The bat colonies like roosting in the places which are high up in an attic, but sometime the bats may follow up a pip or a cavity trying to get a place where they can sleep.
When it comes to making the noise, the bats are known to be quiet animals. They go out in the night and they leave the roost to go to feed outside. You may only hear the bats when they live in your walls since they get disturbed by the slamming door or loud noise. The bats do make the squeaking noises and you may hear them when the crawl or when they scratch at the dusk or during the down when they wake or when they return to a roost. The bats also can chatter and this is the clue that they live in your place. The chattering is the sound that the bats may make at the dusk before they can fly out so that they can go to feed. The babies can also be vocal when they are hungry or when they mothers do return from the night hunting of the insects. The bats can live in the colonies of over 600 bats in the home and they may never make enough noise to let the owners know about it.
The bats are normally the creatures of habit and they can roost together in one area day after day. One thing that you have to count on is that bats may leave the guano droppings at the entrance of the roosts area each night. The droppings can accumulate on the porch, windowsill or on the wall or other place where bats enter in your home.
Their guano may resemble the mouse dropping but they are larger. You can inspect the attic window to get visible droppings and you should be on the lookout for the obvious openings within the exterior where the bats get in or out.
When you notice one of the three things, you should inspect your home for the bats. At the sunset, you can take lawn chair outside, look up to your house while sitting down; you will be able to see the bats while leaving the roost during the night. In case you have the bats in the house, this is one way that you can see them.
