Bat Control and Removal
Bats are not as bad as the reputation they have. They keep our insect population in check, consuming about 500 insects in one hour. Another misconception about bats is the myth that they are blind; this is not true, they can actual see quite well. They use high-frequency sounds, called echolocation, as their main method of communication and navigation for hunting at nighttime. Bats mate in the fall but not give birth until June. Due to the fact that the babies are still dependent on their mother for food, 1-way doors are not allowed to be installed for prevention until after August 1st.
Damage and Nuisance Caused by Bats
Bats as well as mice will enter and use any building or structure as a nesting spot. Bats can use any hole as small as a Canadian dime as an entry point. Bats teeth are so small, they can bite you in your sleep and you may not even notice the bite marks. Unfortunately bats have the potential to pass along rabies to humans. Another problem with having bats in your home is that after they are gone the danger still remains -guano. Guano is the urine and droppings from bats and after guano has laid around for a couple of years, a fungus can grow in it releasing spores into the air that cause histoplasmosis in humans. Histoplasmosis can cause serious respiratory diseases, causing fever and chest pains. If left untreated, this bat initiated disease can turn into a chronic lung disease.
