Bats are an important part of our ecosystem. They eat a ton of bugs, which keeps keeping the insect up close photo of a batpopulation under control and crops and flowers thriving; however, no matter how great of a role they play in nature, no one wants to find out bats have been inhabiting their home or business. If you suspect a bat infestation on your property, avoid contact with the critters and call for professional removal.

How to Know You Are Dealing With a Bat Infestation

Bats tend to settle in dark, quiet places, making your attic the ideal location. If you think you may have a bat infestation, look out for these common warning signs:

  1. Screeching or fluttering noises
  2. Black or dark grease stains on your walls
  3. Foul, ammonia-like odors

Are Bats Dangerous?

Bats often carry rabies, but this won’t affect you unless you’re bitten. The lesser-known danger of a bat infestation is histoplasmosis. Histoplasmosis is found in bat feces or guano. If you attempt any at-home cleaning methods there is a chance you can come into contact with bat droppings and expose yourself and anyone else in the vicinity to this disease should it become airborne.

Seek Professional Bat Removal

When faced with a bat infestation, the best thing you can do is rely on Eustis bat removal professionals to get rid of the problem. Bats carry a multitude of diseases that are harmful to humans, and if you attempt do-it-yourself removal there is a chance you will corner the critter, causing it to feel threatened and become aggressive. Besides the health concerns, there are a few other problems with DIY removal methods:

  1. Several bat species are protected in Florida, meaning it’s illegal to harm or kill the species. Furthermore, a special removal license is often required to even handle them.
  2. Between the months of April and August, it is illegal to remove bats due to mating season protections. They are legally protected whether they’re occupying your property or not.
  3. Bats tend to climb in tight, high spaces, meaning that trying to get to them yourself can lead to injuries. Professionals are trained on how to safely and properly remove critters from your home and avoid any personal accidents.
