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 Albion 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.
