Anyone else have problems with bats?

I've had to kill 3 bats the last month after they snuck in through our chimney

I've found that using a tennis racket is the best instrument for killing them because they strike with such force (the first two times I used a broom and it took a bit more despite having more reach)

what do you guys use to kill any uninvited bats?

my 2 cats are too old to kill bats BTW, although they do help me locate them and they take swipes. they just don't go for the kill for some reason.....kinda like Kobe vs the Mavericks or something.

advice welcomed, thanks

Check the foundation of your home around the southeast corner. There could be a cave where they camp out. If they're there, head to work and tell the acting CEO of your company that you'd like to work down in the Applied Sciences division, which has been working on military prototypes of various sorts for years. There will be a guy down there with knowledge of everything that the company's been working on. Ask him for the Nomex Survival Suit, it's a suit that's built to withstand knives and other sorts of attacks. Tell him you want to borrow it and that it's for spelunking. Then take the suit and head back home and go back to the southeast corner, then head underground. Put the suit on and attach yourself to some cables so you can install lighting. Now here's where things get tricky, you're going to be attracted to the waterfall that's on the far corner, don't. The bats don't go over there. Stick to the big wall and carve out some stuff so you can get some electricity and some infrastructure down there. Once you get that settled, turn the lights on and the bats should fly around you, but not in an aggressive way. This is where you'll bond with them and come to recognize your true self. This will be the beginning of your relationship with the bats and you'll be able to progress from there accordingly.

Hope this helps.

Be careful. Bats carry alot of diseases especially rabies. They say even if one lands on you rabies testing is required. They usually enter the home where theres access. The smallest crack in chimneys,soffit area,roof line or windows. Hopefully your problem is limited to a few bats and not a nest of 50. I read where chimney caps help keep them out if thats where they are gaining access. Years ago my grandmother had them in her attic and she needed professional intervention at a cost of $2500. I would strongly suggest taking immediate action before they decide to nest in your home. Good Luck.

We had a - we had a really serious problem with Billy Batts. This was really a touchy thing. Tommy had killed a made guy. Batts was part of the Gambino crew and was considered untouchable. And before you could touch a made guy, you had to have a good reason. You had to have a sit down and you better get an okay or you'd be the one who got whacked.

First NEVER KILL BATS unless you must, and only if you really like mosquitoes.

Getting rid of bats is simple, but you must be SURE you know the entry point.

Bats leave at dark to go eat bugs. They're hungriest at dusk because they've slept all day.

You simply go out at about 11pm or midnight and cover it.

Options: Chimney cap from Home Depot

wire mesh - not window screen, but a thicker one with squares about 1/2 cm.

They will simply find a new place to crash, and you don't have to kill them.

yup. my parents live on the connecticut river, and the skeeters got pretty awful, dad got a bat house, (on a tree) and you can notice the difference. bats are extremely beneficial, as long as they stay outside !
