Bats are much more common throughout the United States than people may think, and professional bat removal services are the best option to eliminate the pests humanely and safely. For the most part, bats prefer larger spaces such as caves and old mining developments for their homes, but human homes are becoming more appealing as those other options disappear.
The Dangers of Bats
Bats carry a disease, including rabies, which can be fatal to humans. Traditionally, bats do not attack humans, but if you try to remove the bat on your own, it may react defensively. If a bat scratches or bites you, you are susceptible to any disease it is carrying.
Bats can also contaminate your home with their droppings, known as guano. When bats find a good roosting spot, there will be a build-up of guano and urine under that spot which can cause a strong odor, attract bugs, and carry the disease histoplasmosis, which can be deadly to humans. If bats decide to make your house their home, they could build a nest and breed, increasing their count to hundreds.
