How Bats May Enter Your Home
Sometimes, bats enter homes through open doors and windows. Other times, bats squeeze through small openings in the the roofs, which tend to be difficult for homeowners to discover until after the bats have settled in, already having made a huge mess.
Bats Are Dangerous To Your Health
Some bats are capable of transmitting rabies to both humans and pets. However, the bigger threat is the bat guano that will pile up over time, which will not just cause severe odor and health problems but also attract other pests. As a result, homeowners who notice bats in their homes should contact a wildlife management specialist to remove them as soon as possible.
How to Remove the Bats
People have been known to attempt to catch bats on their own, but without the proper expertise, experience, and equipment, this tends to be a poor idea. After all, even something as simple as a careless movement from a human can result in serious injuries to a bat. Instead, the best solution to bats roosting in the home is to call wildlife management specialists who have the right tools needed to remove them in a safe, humane manner.
