Oakland Animal Removal
Oakland Hills and surrounding areas attract wildlife, especially bats. Living at higher altitudes along with an abundance of tall trees, coupled with a moist environment, bats are destined to live Oakland and surrounding areas. Bats have a tendency to live in attics or chimneys when caves are full of other bats. It’s a perfect breeding ground for bats. In areas where it gets too cold, bats will migrate to warmer climates. But, Oakland does not get too cold. So, they tend to stay all year round. Here’s how to bat proof your home to keep these little creatures away from your living spaces.
