It's Bat Time of Year
It doesn’t matter whether it’s Mount Shasta, Redding, Chico, or any other area of the North State, I, as a Small Brown Bat, or my cousin, the Large Brown Bat, will be spreading our wings and be on the prowl. I love this time of year.  The days are warming up and more importantly the nights are too, which means it’s time for me to wake from my winter slumber and begin the spring feast on all of those wonderful insects that are emerging. 
I know that I may annoy you a bit since often times your attics make wonderful homes for me and my siblings.  If I can find a way into your attic through any opening larger than a ¼ to ½ inch, I will! Especially if there are some delicious mosquitoes, crickets, June beetles, moths or other flying insects for me to snack on near your home.  I really am beneficial you know, because I do help keep the bug populations in check.  Beware however, because if you happen to see one of my fellow bats out in the daytime, it means that I’m probably sick or have rabies, so please don’t touch, or they may bite you.
Now if you don’t like me living in your attic call a professional pest control company such as Woods Pest Control to come get me out.  I really don’t mind, I’ll find a new home.  Woods Pest Control knows how to remove me safely and humanely from your home and then seal it up preventing me from reentering your attic space.  I may not be too happy at first as I may try to come “home”, but in a day or two I’ll realize that it will be time to relocate.  If you really like me to hang about, but just not in your home, try hanging some bat boxes about and I’ll see if I like them.  If I do, I’ll move on in!
