Bats are often thought of as a bad nuisance animal, stemming from the famous blood sucking vampire bat. Well rest assured, there aren’t any in the United States. Though there are more then three dozen varieties in the US, The Little Brown and The Big Brown Bat are the most commonly dealt with in buildings.
Although very important to the ecosystem, because of their diet, mosquitos, beetles, and moths, bats are not something we want to have in our home. Bats can and sometimes do carry rabies, a serious concern for anybody dealing with them. Histoplasmosis is more likely to affect humans, which is found in their droppings, making it a serious issue and something that needs to be dealt with if bats are residing in your attic.
Bats Cause Damage
Bats can cause severe damages to your home or commercial property if allowed to stay a while. They like to take up residence in your attics and walls.
