Bats to Rats Owner Daine Patton Tapped for Review of Bat Activity in Lincoln

Bats to Rats Wildlife Control & Prevention ( Owner Daine Patton—who has been taking an average of 30 to 40 calls per day about bats in area buildings—was the featured expert on 1011 NOW September 14 to explain the apparent increase in bat activity. The reality, he said, is that August generally is a high season for bats in Lincoln and there really aren’t more bats than average this year. Rather, people are just home more in 2020 and hearing them, noticing signs of them, and seeing them hanging or flitting about. The tripling of calls for bat service, alas, is just another reality of the isolation COVID created.

Newly located at 3420 N 22nd St., Unit 1, Bats to Rats is experienced in bats and rodent control in buildings of all types. Daine listed a few of the telltale signs that you might have some of the unwanted guests roosting in your space: Look for droppings on the outside of your house. Look up. If you see staining on the outside of your house, that usually means that bats are coming and going in your home. If you see some insulation on your roof that wasn’t there before, that’s because you have bats.
