If you believe there is a need for bat netting this means you have most likely already been through the bat inspection process. The process discovers where all the entry holes into the building are. It is wise to inspect for bird and bat entry from time to time. It is also wise to do this before the building needs to be shut down. A clinic in Volusia County, New Smyrna Beach, Florida, had to be closed down because of bats. The health department had to contract with a company to eradicate the bats, which can spread disease. This particular clinic was closed for a week.
Closing down a company can mean thousands if not millions of dollars lost in revenue. It seems practical to take action before the devastation of a bat infestation takes place.
There are over 900 kinds of bats. The big brown bat hibernates in very cold, even freezing, temperatures and it is common to find them sleeping in public buildings, garages and houses during the early winter. It is important to block them from entering in the first place so as not to have to deal with them when they wake up from this hibernation and try to feed. Installation of bat netting is a sure way to keep them out.
Bats can fit through very small holes. Bat netting is very strong, even stronger than average bird netting, and it is knotted and specially designed to be a bat barrier. Bat netting is available in 10’x10’, 25’x25’, and 50’x50’ and with the mesh size of 3/8”. The mesh is made of U.V. protected polyethylene. It can also be ordered to fit any size to cover all of your bat exclusion needs when ordering from a reputable bird control company.
