Like many other animals, bats create problems when they come into conflict with humans. When this happens, control measures, not necessarily lethal, should be taken to solve the problem. The presence of bats in the area or neighborhood is not detrimental. In fact, bats provide many more benefits than most people realize.
Control measures must provide a long-term solution to the problem. Many short-term control measures are illegal and hazardous to both bats and humans. The basic strategy is to get them to permanently move some place other than in your home without harming them in the process.
