More on Bats
Bats are beneficial to Humans and are nature's number 1 pest control. There are 46 species that reside in North America and are most common in the Southwestern areas. Although most bats can benefit us outside, they pose a great health risk and uncomfortable lifestyle indoors. Bats can be found in attics, Barns, porches etc. Bats stay in a sheltered area during the day and come out during the night to feed. Once they find a comfortable roosting site you're bound to hear from them again.
The misconception about bats is that they are blind. The fact is they are not blind but some bats see very well. Their sight is actually best during dusk and dawn. Bats use echolocation to navigate and hunt their food in the dark. They are good hunters and can eat anywhere from 600 to 1000 insects in one hour. 70% of bats are insectivores only a small percentage of bats are carnivorous. The diet of these carnivores bats may consist of fish, frogs, mice and small birds. Vampire bats are native to South America.
Exclusion is the best ways to control or eliminate bat populations. Exclusion involves sealing all entry points to a building either before the young are born or after they are able to fly. Note that before any structure is bat proofed you must evict the bats from the structure. To do so contact a professional. We here at Abolish Pest Control are professionals and have special methods of ridding bats from any structure. All of our methods are safe and humane. top
Bats and disease
Bats have been associated with over 40 viruses during the last 40 years. That alone should concern people, such as rabies (less than one half of one percent of bats are known to be infected with rabies) and Histoplasmosis. Rabies is a dangerous, fatal viral infection. In recent years, there has been increased concern about the risk of rabies transmission following contact with bats. If an injured or ill bat is found in or around a structure, it should be removed because most bats will try to bite when handled. Contact a professional to capture the bat if it has bitten or scratched someone. The bat needs to be captured without touching it with your hands and without crushing its head. If the bat is dead, refrigerate it (DO NOT freeze) and then contact your local health department immediately for instructions.
Accumulated bat droppings can contain the fungus Histoplasma capsulatum. Without proper protection and steps when dealing with Bat droppings you risk infection. Bat guano does not necessarily need to come into contact with soil to be a source of the disease, they do however do need to be dry, particulate and inhale-able. The acute respiratory disease is characterized by respiratory symptoms, a general ill feeling, fever, chest pains, and a dry or nonproductive cough. Chronic lung disease resembles tuberculosis and can worsen over months or years. The disseminated form is fatal unless treated. top
