Bat Control in Florida: 407-729-6946
North America is home to many bat species, but it is only the colonizing bats that cause problems for people. This is because bat colonies need places to roost and raise their young, and oftentimes, man-made structures provide the best habitat currently available. Bats love to live in warm, dry attics. Bats are small and have high metabolisms, and they seek out heat. Attics of homes and buildings provide these necessary shelter requirements. Bats are good animals, mammals of course, and they serve their function and purpose in nature. Unfortunately for people, when a colony chooses to roost in close quarters with people, bats bring with them a number of unpleasant side effects. First of all, many people are uncomfortable with bats. This fear is often unfounded, but some people believe that bats will attack them or that bats fly in people's hair. This is not true. Bats have excellent navigation abilities, and they are not aggressive toward people. However, the presence of bats can keep people away from public places, such as shopping malls, churches, or apartments, all types of buildings I have performed bat control for. As far as legitimate concerns, bats pose a sanitation issue: they usually emit a strong musky smell. They leave a large quantity of droppings that can get everywhere, or accumulate in an attic in high amount. These droppings are unsanitary and in some cases a biohazard. Bat droppings are known to promote the growth of the fungus that causes the disease histoplasmosis in people. Furthermore, the majority of cases of fatal rabies transmission to humans in North America is from bats.
The most common types of colonizing bats to enter people's homes and buildings are the Little Brown Bat (myotis lucifugus), which inhabits much of North America, up through much of Canada, the Big Brown Bat (eptesicus fuscus), which inhabits most of America, and the Brazilian Free-Tailed Bat (tadarida brasiliensis) which lives in the more southern portions of America.
