I read through your article about bats and very interested in buying some of the products but not sure which is most effective for our warehouse.
Our warehouse is located in Bali, Indonesia. It’s used to store furniture. The main problem is at nights bats would come and poo on the furniture.
This is not just dangerous but also cost us money as we have to re-do the finishing.
As you can see on picture below the construction which is completely open. High ceiling supported by bamboo poles, no walls nor glass to cover the area.
We hang several blinds on the side to prevent direct sun and rain, but the rest is open, so at night bats can fly however they like. P
With this situation would it be possible for you to recommend which product we could use?
Looking forward to your recommendation.
Based on the photo you sent:
In my experience, the CEILING ULTRA SOUND DEVICE is ideally suited for the job. It’s designed to be attached to the ceiling and it can cover quite a bit of area. As listed on it’s product page, it can protect up to 2500 sq/ft. Based on the image you’ve provided, it appears the roof is pitched at an angle. For this reason I’m afraid you’ll have to install two units to get proper protection. I’m also assuming the bats are coming inside to roost and “hang out”. So if they are in fact landing on the bottom side of the roof line, the Ultra Sound is the way to go.
Now if it turns out they are entering the open space and simply flying around, I’m not sure the Ultra Sound is the remedy to employ. In this scenario, it would be most likely they are coming inside to feed. And if this is true, then there must be an abundant supply of food inside to lure them inside. For most bats it’s insects they’re after. And for this reason one of the best ways to repel the bats would be to remove the “attractant”. In other words, get rid of the insects and you’ll get rid of the bats!
This can best be accomplished by treating the open air space with a SPACE FOGGER an some PERMETHRIN. This treatment may need to be done a few times a week after you close but once you get the local insect population down inside the protected area under the roof, the bats will be forced to go elsewhere for food. This indirect method would prove highly effective and a sure way to deal with unwanted visitors like bats.
