3 Top Dangers of Bats in the Attic

Whether you have a single brown bat or an entire colony of bats in the attic, bats present dangers and you’ll want to get rid of bats quickly. Bats in New Haven are known to cause on average, several thousand dollars in removal and restoration costs. 

  1. Physical Damage:The continual buildup of guano and urine from attic bats roosting damages attic insulation and even drywall. It’s possible that your homeowners insurance will deny this structural damage to your property, leaving you with expensive repair costs.
  2. Rabies: In addition, if a person has been sleeping in an area where a bat was flying around, the bat should be brought in and tested for rabies. Never handle or attempt to grab a bat yourself! Unfortunately, the fatality rate for bat bites and scratches is 100% without proper vaccination within 14 days after exposure. For more information visit the Allen County Indiana website rabies information page.
  3. Histoplasmosis: Inhalation of fungal spores present in bat guano causes this disease. When bats roost in the attic, they leave large volumes of droppings, which can spread disease. Another reason to avoid sweeping up bat poop is that doing so can disperse spores.

How big of a crack can a bat fit through? Their small size makes it easy for bats to tuck themselves into even the smallest of gaps. They can squeeze through holes as small as 6 millimetres or about the size of a dime. Once inside the structure, bats will roost in attics and between walls.

How long does a bat live? Between 20 and 40 years. Compared to a similar-sized animal like a rat that lives only two or three years, bats live between 20 and 40 years. Researchers theorize this has to do with the ability of bats to fly.

Why is bat poop toxic? Histoplasmosis is a disease associated with the droppings of bats known as guano. The disease primarily affects the lungs and can be life threatening, particularly to those with a weakened immune system. It is transmitted when a person inhales spores from fungus that grow on bird and bat droppings.

Process Of Removing Bats From The Attic

Step #1 – Inspection: During the bat inspection we locate entry points & evaluate working conditions for the exclusion process.

Step #2 – Bat Proofing: Every nook and cranny of the building must be sealed up, except for the entrance bats are using.

Step #3 – Bat Exclusion: We use one-way doors to evict bats outside the home and they cannot get back in, hence “one-way door.”

Step #4 – Guano Cleanup: Bats tend to leave a lot of droppings, which is why we offer bat guano cleanup and attic restoration.

What do bats eat? Bats are the most significant predators of night-flying insects. There are at least 40 different kinds of bats in the U.S. that eat nothing but insects. A single little brown bat, which has a body no bigger than an adult human’s thumb, can eat 4 to 8 grams (the weight of about a grape or two) of insects each night.

Bat extermination or Bat eradication by a Bat exterminator is not in the best interest of this very beneficial animal. Bats extermination would negatively affect the environment and reduce the numbers of insect controlling Bats.

Why are bats important? By eating insects, bats save U.S. agriculture billions of dollars per year in pest control. Some studies have estimated that service to be worth over $3.7 billion per year, and possibly as much as $53 billion. This value does not, however, take into account the volume of insects eaten by bats in forest ecosystems. U.S. Department of the Interior

What happens if you have bats? It is illegal to intentionally kill, injure or take any bat or to recklessly damage, destroy or block up their roosts or disturb them. Because bats tend to return to the same roosts each year, these sites are protected whether the bats are present or not.

There are a wide variety of bat species in the US, though it’s usually the colonizing bat types that cause problems in buildings and require bat removal services.
