Common Damage Caused By Bats
Bats are commonly found in attics and barns, as they enjoy safe, dark places. Hollow trees and bat boxes are ideal places for the creatures to roost, as well. During summer months when bat pups are learning to fly, they accidentally enter buildings through open doors or windows. When bat droppings accumulate in your home, it can cause serious harm for you, your family and pets. Common bat problems include:
- Home insulation contamination
- Harmful disease and bacteria
Despite their reputation for carrying rabies, less than half of one percent of bats actually carry the virus. Nevertheless, bats should never be picked up or grabbed. To keep colonies of the creatures from roosting in attics, proper precautions should be taken to cover or seal all vents, holes, chimneys, windows and gaps leading inside homes.
