Bat Identification & Prevention

What are bats?

Bats belong to the scientific order of Chiroptera, and they are the only mammals capable of true and sustained flight. Bats range in size from a few inches long and an ounce in weight to a few feet long and up to three pounds. Bats are easily recognized by their thin wings, large ears, short snouts, and fur-covered body. Depending on the species of bat you are dealing with, the fur on their body may be rusty brown, dark brown, or gray and black.

It’s important to note that professional bat removal is essential with this pest, as they do present serious health and safety risks.

Are bats dangerous?

Even though bats are essential to our ecosystem, they present serious dangers when they infest your property. Bat droppings are known for spreading diseases like histoplasmosis, and they typically need to be removed by a professional to stop the spread of pathogens.

Bats are also known carriers of illnesses such as rabies, and you may not even know you’ve been bitten or scratched by an infected bat. If you stumble across bats’ hiding spaces, they may attack you, increasing your chances of picking up a serious disease.

Our bat control specialists at BigHeart Wildlife Removal are ready to help protect you and those you care about from the dangers of this pest.

Why do I have a bat problem?

Bats love warm and secluded areas, and if they spot an opening into attics, wall voids, or other dark and safe spots, they will slip inside and settle down. Bats also flock to properties where there is an easy source of pest prey or an easy source of moisture. Removing the factors that might be causing your bat problem is an essential step in bat control for your property.

Where will I find bats?

Bats love tight and narrow spaces, and they are nocturnal creatures. You are likely to find bats hiding in attics or storage areas, in elevated spaces in garages, in the space between wall voids, or outdoors in hollowed trees and other sheltered areas. At BigHeart Wildlife Removal, we help you find these hiding spots as part of our bat removal treatments.
