Homeowners typically have more issues and encounters with local wildlife in the springtime. Since this is the season when many new animals are born, there will be a lot of new animals to watch out for around the home. Despite the homeowner’s best efforts, it’s still possible for wild animals to get inside the home or to get close enough to the home to become a nuisance. At this point, it’s a good idea for the homeowner to contact a wildlife removal specialist
What critter or wild animal are you most afraid of? For some, bats evoke a fear like no other. This may come from watching old vampire movies, or because they are nocturnal and come out when it is dark out, or it may just be that you think they may carry disease. Bats are incredibly interesting creatures that mean us humans no harm. However, when they find their way inside a home and make themselves at home, they still need to be removed. They also carry disease and need to be removed by a professional.
There are many reasons that you do not want bats living inside your home. Bats carry diseases that can be passed along to humans, including rabies. If you see any evidence that you may have bats hiding in your siding, roofline, chimney or vents, it is time to call the professionals at Minnesota Wild Animal Management. Bat removal services should always be handled by a trained professional. In fact, if you come into physical contact with a bat, you should be seen quickly by a healthcare professional
Of the seven species of bats that can be found in Minnesota, only two will try to take up residence in your home. Those two species are the little brown myotis and the large brown bat. This sounds like pretty good odds, right? Not exactly. The reality is that most people, even those who are not afraid of bats, do not want any species of bat moving into their house. We understand bats, and we respect the good they do for our environment and various ecosystems. However, we also understand that no one would want to share their home with a bat family
You may have enough knowledge of bats to appreciate that they are intelligent and do a great deal of good for our ecosystem by keeping insect populations in check. You may also know that bats are the only mammal that can fly. However, if you are enjoying a movie in your family room or organizing a box of photos in the attic and you are suddenly dive bombed by a bat or two, this knowledge and appreciation of the intriguing qualities of bats may not be on your mind
Of all of the wild animals that can get into your home, bats can cause some of the most significant problems. Bats carry and transmit diseases to humans, so it is very important that you contact a professional if you think that you have bats in your home. In addition, if you come into close contact (or are bitten) by a bat, you should always seek medical attention immediately. Bats can carry rabies which can be dangerous to humans…
