As fall approaches, we begin to think about cooler temperatures, autumn leaves, pumpkin patches, fresh baked goods and spooky images of witches, ghouls and even bats. Bats are a traditional image of Halloween fun and fall, but when they invade your home or property, they become a true nuisance. Bats are the only mammals that can fly and help our ecosystem by eating many insects, keeping bug populations in check. There are 40 species of bats in the US and 7 species in Minnesota alone. Only two species of bats will live in dwellings — the little brown Myotis and the large brown bat. If you suspect that bats have invaded your home, get rid of them quickly before you have any more problems. Minnesota Wild Animal Management Inc. serves Woodbury MN and can safely and humanely rid your home or property of bats quickly, while preventing them from returning.
Dangers Of Bats Living On Your Property
In addition to being a bit spooky, bats can carry and transmit diseases, including rabies, and they pose danger to your family and your pets. Bat droppings (bat guano) are also unsanitary and can also transmit histoplasmosis, a disease that can be serious. Bats generally enter a dwelling looking for a place to nest or sleep. They most often enter through open areas of your home’s siding, roofline, chimney, vents, and fascia. If you have seen a bat anywhere in your home, hear squeaking noises, scratching at dusk or dawn when they enter or leave, or you find bat droppings on walls or window sills, you may have a bat problem.
