Are Bats Dangerous?
Many people question whether one or two bats in the attic is really that big of a deal. Unfortunately, it definitely can be and these pests need to be removed. Bats are primarily dangerous because of their innate ability to carry and transmit diseases. The most common disease bats may carry is rabies. Rabies is a deadly disease to humans and if exposed or bitten by a bat, your chances of rabies greatly increase. In this situation, many people find themselves in the hospital receiving a multitude of injections to prevent rabies from occurring. Even if you have no direct exposure to the actual bats, their feces can also make you very sick. Bat droppings, also known as guano, can create toxic spores called Histoplasmosis. This is yet another dangerous disease that can make humans and pets ill.
Residential Attic Bat Removal & Prevention
Bats love to hide in attics. Attics are within a bats fly zone, making attics an ideal place to nest and raise their young. Bats easily invade attics as weaknesses in the soffit, fascia, vents, and roof overlaps can occur. Bats are so small that they can weasel their way in places that are as small as ⅜ of an inch.
