Bats can be very beneficial for keeping the Minneapolis mosquito population down. Of course the benefits only apply to bats that remain outside where they belong. A bat that gets into your home is another story. If you find one bat flying around inside of a home or building, there is always a chance that an entire bat community has taken up in your residence. Any sign of bats in your home, especially a bat that looks or acts sick, should result in a call to the Minneapolis bat removal service experts at Minnesota Wild Animal Management, Inc. Our highly trained professionals know how to find where the bats are hiding and how and where they got in. Once all of the bats have been safely removed our team can take active measures to keep them from returning.
Removing Unwanted or Dangerous Bats
Knowing what to do when you encounter an unwanted bat can save you from an unfortunate and possibly dangerous situation. Although rare, bats can carry the rabies virus, which can be transmitted to people and pets. Experts recommend that if an individual wakes up in a room where a bat has been found that they be evaluated by a medical doctor as soon as possible. Make an effort to capture the bat alive and without damage to the head so that it can be tested for rabies. Your doctor may recommend post exposure rabies treatments unless the bat is tested and found to not have rabies.
Single Bat vs Larger Bat Colony
When a single bat is discovered inside of a dwelling there is always a chance that it is part of a larger bat colony. Bats can enter through incredibly small spaces and nest inside of an attic, chimney, walls, eves or basements. They can leave large amounts of bat droppings that can result in fungal spores. Some people are prone to respiratory illness from inhaling fungus.
