Successfully locating bats in your home often means finding them the old-fashioned way.
However, science has also provided a solution in some instances. Our company maintains some bat detectors. These tools can occasionally prove useful during bat inspections or exclusion services, if bats are using echolocation in the attic or in flight when returning or exiting from your home.
The detector works by homing in on the bat’s radar signal. Bats use this echolocation to navigate in the dark, capture flying insects, avoid predators and evade obstacles. While the bat’s radar signal exists at a level above a human’s hearing range, the detector has no problem guiding a technician to the source. It’s a high-tech answer to a low-tech challenge.
