Eliminating bats from your home is important due to the potential disruptions they can cause. Bats can create noise and mess with their presence, impacting the peaceful environment of your living space. Addressing the bat infestation promptly ensures a harmonious atmosphere for both inhabitants and the overall comfort of your home.

These are the most common ways bats can enter your home:

  • Attic Vents: Bats can enter through openings in attic vents that are damaged, improperly sealed, or left open.
  • Chimneys: Bats can enter chimneys that lack proper caps or screens, providing them with easy access to your home.
  • Gaps in Siding: Small gaps or cracks in the siding, roofline, or soffits can serve as entry points for bats to infiltrate your home.
  • Roof Openings: Bats can enter through damaged roof tiles, shingles, or gaps in roofing materials.
  • Unsealed Windows and Doors: Bats can find their way indoors through open windows, doors, or gaps around windows that aren't properly sealed.

The Threats Posed by an Untreated Bat Infestation in Your Home

Bats can have serious impacts on the structural integrity of your home, cause health implications, and can cause other diseases. Don't let the following risks impact the lives of you and your loved ones:

  • Rabies Transmission: Bats can carry and transmit rabies, a deadly viral disease that can be transmitted through bites or scratches, posing a direct threat to human and pet health.
  • Histoplasmosis Risk: Accumulated bat droppings can harbor the fungus that causes histoplasmosis, a respiratory illness that can be contracted by inhaling spores, leading to flu-like symptoms and potential complications.
  • Cryptococcosis Concerns: Guano from bats can contain the fungus responsible for cryptococcosis, a fungal infection that primarily affects the respiratory system and can cause severe pneumonia.
  • Bite or Scratch Infections: Bats may bite or scratch if threatened, potentially introducing bacterial infections such as staph or strep.
  • Allergen Exposure: Bat droppings and particles can become airborne, triggering allergies and respiratory issues in sensitive individuals.
  • Ectoparasite Infestations: Bats can host various ectoparasites, such as bat bugs and mites, which can infest your home and potentially bite humans, causing discomfort and skin reactions.
  • Guano Damage: The accumulation of bat droppings can corrode and deteriorate surfaces over time, leading to costly repairs and maintenance.
  • Attic Insulation Contamination: Bats nesting in attics can contaminate insulation with guano, reducing its efficiency and necessitating replacement.
  • Structural Degradation: Bat nests and guano can damage building materials, weakening structures and compromising the integrity of your home.
  • Psychological Stress: The presence of bats in living areas can cause anxiety, distress, and psychological discomfort for family members, impacting overall well-being.
