Bat Nuisance Concerns?
Bats are nocturnal mammals and usually emerge at dusk. They feed on insects and can eat up to 1000 mosquitoes in an hour. They tend to inhabit dark spaces like attics where they usually wreak havoc. Their droppings also known as bat guano, are a major health hazard to human and pets and after a while large piles of droppings form. Not only do the droppings and urine corrode wood/metal, but the weight of them can collapse the ceiling below the attic. Bats in North America hibernate in the colder weather. They roost in large colonies in attics, chimneys, churches, under bridges and fly out in large clusters. A bat in your home could be a one-time incident, possibly a window or door was left open, but it could also be a telltale sign of a bat infestation in your attic.
Bat Removal and Bat Guano Clean-Up!
While there are plenty of DIY website on bat removal solutions and bat exclusions, it is not only dangerous to try to remove a bat yourself, but it is also illegal to kill a bat. Most bats are federally protected, and it is best to contact a wildlife control specialist to safely and humanely remove bats from homes, attics or any dwelling. Their roosting sites turn into toxic messes. Clean up of bat guano presents a big safety concern. Wearing gloves, mask and following safety practices is very important. Note that a dust mask may provide some protection against dust, molds, and insulation fibers, but does not protect against viruses.
