When bats take up residence in your Orlando home, they often bring with them disease and destruction. These winged creatures do not normally come into close contact with humans, and their presence in your home may not be immediately apparent. If an infestation is allowed to grow, however, it can lead to serious problems for the health of your family and home.
Dangers of Bats
The most well-known danger of bat activity is their potential to spread harmful diseases like rabies, but perhaps the most dangerous part of having bats in your home comes from their fecal waste. Also known as guano, bat feces is often found in piles underneath where the bats roost at night and is dusty in consistency. If disturbed, guano can release harmful bacteria into the air which puts you and your family at risk for dangerous diseases like histoplasmosis. Additionally, guano is corrosive and can damage important structural components of your home over time. If you notice bat guano anywhere on your property, contact the experts at Critter ControlÂ® of Orlando right away.
