“We hired Midcoast Wildlife Specialists to help us get rid of some bats in our attic. They came the day I called, sealed everything up, and have come back a few times since to check on things. The team is thorough, professional, and made up of some of the nicest people. Highly recommend if you’re dealing with any unwanted critters!”

Sofija Razgaitis

“A colony of bats had entered out large garage. Once the entry point was found a closed up a device was setup to allow all the bats out but they could not return. The clean up was perfect and the attic of the garage was like new. Highly recommend this company. PLUS they got our insurance to cover almost all the costs.”

The Two Most Common Bats Found In Maine Homes And Buildings And White Nose Syndrome

Bats With White Nosed Syndrome

White-nose syndrome is a disease affecting hibernating bats. Named for the white fungus that appears on the muzzle and other parts of hibernating bats, WNS is associated with extensive mortality of bats in Maine and the US. First documented in New York in the winter of 2006-2007, WNS has spread rapidly across the eastern United States and Canada, and the fungus that causes WNS has been detected as far south as Mississippi and as far west as the state of Washington.

Little Brown Bat

In Maine the little brown bat has been listed as endangered. Little brown bats are at a higher threat due to white nose syndrome (WNS) in eastern North America. The little brown bat lives in three different roosting sites: day roosts, night roost and hibernation roosts. Roosts can be found in buildings, trees, under rocks, wood piles, sometimes in caves, natural hollows , under the sheet metal roofs of trappers’ caches, attics of buildings. Bats rest in night roosts after feeding in the evening which may serve to keep their feces away from the day roosts and thus less noticeable to predators.

Big Brown Bat

The big brown bat can be found in Maine and it is at risk. The big brown bat is one of the most widespread and abundant bats in North America. As its name suggests, the big brown bat is a relatively large bat species with fairly uniform brown fur. The big brown bat commonly roosts in buildings and has adapted well to the presence of humans. The big brown bat feeds mainly on beetles and is an important predator of insect pests.

How Bats Enter Your Maine Home Or Buildings

Maine Bat Control and dormer-areas siding that bats use to enter homes
Bats love old houses and dormer areas because they offer so many possible entrance areas. Bats need just a small crack-about 3/8 by 1-to enter a home or business building and can compress through openings the dimension of a quarter. That’s not much space, so you need to make sure every opening around your dormers is well sealed. It’s best to be proactive and let the pros at Maine Bat Control do an inspection by calling ​​ (207) 380-6652.
Maine Bat Control locate vent openings that bats use to enter attics
A vent is an essential component of a home or building’s roof. But when it comes to problem animals like bats, vents allow bats a way into your attic. Also, a ridge vent, a cover that runs along the peak of a roof to cover the roof deck opening along the ridge, is an entrance for bats if not properly covered by a product like the Peak Protector. Some people are perplexed why there would be an opening at the top of their roof, but the venting at the ridge is an essential part of roof ventilation.
Maine Bat Control located hidden gaps that bats use to enter a building

Bats get entrance into your building more often than not due to badly installed chimney flashing. Wherever joints occur in a building, e.g., walls meeting the roof or a chimney, flashing may be fitted to keep the building watertight. Flashing consists of strips of metal or other material to cover cracks, crevices, and holes. “Flashband,” a Self-adhesive, aluminum-faced bitumen-backed sealing tape, is a quick, efficient, and cost-effective method of flashing used to bat-proof buildings.

Maine Bat Control locates holes created by other wild critters that bats use to enter a building.

When we are bat-proofing a building, our bat experts have to locate the holes in your home that bats use to enter and exit the building. Bats frequently invade holes created by squirrels, birds, or other rodents. To discover if bats are entering and exiting these areas, we do a “bat watch.” In the evening and morning, we station a person on each side of the building with holes and watch to see if bats enter or exit the building.
