Bat piss
 

I have some bats flying around in my shop at night. As they fly they dribble piss. I hate that it gets on my roadster, tools and whatever I have going on. I was wondering if anybody else has had to deal with this. I was thinking that maybe some loud obnoxious music might drive them batty and they will find someplace else to piss.

I remember watching a corny movie called Mars Attacks. Well the Mars guys were even kicking Jim Browns but then somebody played Slim Whitman song and their heads exploded. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0FhQxZnSqc0 Maybe this will work on bats

There are high pitch noise emitters that work very well to evict most unwanted creatures. I would think that bats would be top of that list due to their navigation system relying unsound waves. Check at garden supplies, maybe even Home Depot.

You should do a little research on this, I think you are headed in the right direction. If I remember correctly bats use a high pitched frequency (outside of what humans can hear) for navigation in the dark. Flooding the garage with this frequency might solve the problem.

Bats are like mice, they can get in quite small holes. I would investigate around the eaves and vents to make sure screening has not rotted or been chewed through. Bats like the peak of the gables to hang so start looking there. You could build bat houses, and put the around, quite simple to build. I agree, that Slim Whitman songs could make their heads explode however, but at what cost? You would have to hear it too.

Doors etc are just a small challenge to them. This ought to work https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GSbigjiKLoU

Lack of focus, presumably.

Probably too high pitch to hear, but you can tell when they fly straight for a sec

Back on the farm we would have one person throw rocks in the air after dark and then blow them up with a 12 gauge when their radar folowed the rock... Good thing shells was cheap.

Garlic and a wooden stake is supposed to work on bats, at least some of them.

Maybe they think your vintage car is the Batmobile?

Worked for a guy fixing up house full of bats, not legal to kill here. The guy came in a truck that said Batman on the side. Must have known his trade well. He found a few holes in attic, put up some nylon mesh funnel shapes so they could get out but not in. After a few days came back, took mesh down and filled holes. They never came back. They can get into the smallest spaces, found a whole row of them once when taking off clapboard siding. They love heat and dark.

I had two bats in my garage years ago. I left the door open one night and they came in and would not leave. They were in the corner of the garage. I shot them with a pellet gun. Problem solved.

The high pitch noise devices work wonderfully. Two big ones in the attic and smaller
ones in each vehicle .
