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 Rome City 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 Noble 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.

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.

Is it dangerous to have bats in your house? Bats can also damage your home. They can chew into walls, damage insulation or damage wiring as well. Bat guano is a carrier of the fungus histoplasma capsulatum. Another serious risk from bats, although rare, is the possibility of a bat transmitting rabies to a human from a bite.

What time of day are bats most active? Bats are the most active at night between the hours of dusk to dawn. As night approaches, bats begin to increase their activity. They will start flying around their cave and then leave in search of food and water. Bats will typically feed for about an hour or two, rest for a bit, then feed again before daybreak.

Can you die from bat poop? Both humans and animals can be affected. The disease is transmitted to humans by airborne fungus spores from soil contaminated by pigeon and starling droppings (as well as from the droppings of other birds and bats). On occasion, the disease can cause high fever, blood abnormalities, pneumonia and even death. Health Hazards Associated 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.

Bats become a nuisance when they roost in large numbers in human dwellings. The rapid accumulation of guano (bat droppings) is unsanitary, and serves as a fertile breeding ground for a fungal disease called Histoplasmosis, which is transferable to humans who breathe in the fungal spores.

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.

Is Bat Removal covered by homeowners insurance? Homeowner's insurance does not cover bat removal. Bat removal-bat proofing is the responsibility of the homeowner. The reason insurance companies will not cover the bat removal-bat proofing is because the infestation is a general maintenance issue (in the eyes of the all-mighty Insurance companies, anyway).
