Bats in Boiling Springs Freshman gym being handled says Spartanburg District 2.
In a statement from DHEC, they said that they have captured one bat.
District 2 has called in a wildlife expert, Mike Harrell with Realtech Wildlife, who identified areas that the bats could enter in, crews have now filled all of those holes. They have created a chute that the bats can leave the building from, but not enter back in.
Boiling Springs isn’t the only school that has dealt with bats. Harrell helped Byrnes High School when they had a bat situation in their gym in 2014.
Woodruff High School and Hartwell Elementary has also dealt with bats in their schools.
As the temperatures warm up, Harrell says we will see more bats, as they chase insects.
Harrell recommends that if you see a bat problem, you should contact a wildlife expert to get them out of your home.
