How to Get Rid of Bats In Your Attic
As we mentioned, bats love caves. Since there aren’t really caves in the city, they tend to settle for any place that keeps them up high, warm, dry, and away from any predators. That is why it’s so common for people to find bats living in their attics. Depending on the species, how many bats living up there can range to a few to a hundred. Although, if you have hundreds of bats in your attic, you’ll notice it very soon. Around dusk, they tend to leave their roost so that they can hunt for insects. For this reason, some people consider them a type of pest that they don’t mind living with. However, there are many other issues that you must consider.
Bats themselves commonly carry diseases, ranging from rabies, ebola and the West Nile Virus. A single bite from a bat can have you in the hospital being treated for days on end, resulting in costly unwanted medical bills. Another problem is the guano (feces). While they are up there roosting during the day, the bats are releasing waste that sits in your attic. As the guano dries up, the spores from it become airborne. It can spread through your house and contaminate everything it comes into contact with. You can also breathe in these spores, and this can be very dangerous, especially for pregnant women. Anytime you notice bat activity you should get rid of them instantly to eliminate the harm they cause to your home and family.
