Michigan bats in attic removal service
Michigan bats that get into your attic space or soffits can accumulate a large amount of bat guano (feces). This can lead to staining or discoloration of your siding and also deterioration of your shingles. If you notice a problem with attic bats or any other wildlife animal call us today for a thorough inspection.
Bats carry dangerous diseases, which can be contracted by human beings and their pets if they come in contact with these small flying mammals, their droppings carry disease too if they begin to accumulate in the attic space. Bat guano is extremely acidic and once they begin to pile up and sit for a period of time they may begin to grow mold and those spores can cause a condition known as Histoplasmosis. This is why having bats in the attic of a house can be extremely dangerous to humans and other animals. You should regularly check your attic to ensure that bats haven’t taken up residence there. Look out for these bat signals that might mean it’s time to contact a humane nuisance wildlife control company that specializes in bat exclusion services.
1. Bats at sunrise or sunset
Bats are nocturnal animals, so you won’t see them during the day. But if you see one flying out of the house or around the roof line early in the morning or at night, they may have discovered an entry point and there might be more living in your attic.
2. Bat droppings (guano)
If your attic is infested, you’re likely to encounter the droppings, or guano, outside your home, particularly near any entry points. It’s also possible to come across the droppings on decks, porches, windowsills and in the attic. If you can’t see them, you might smell them. Guano produces a strong, toxic odor similar to that of ammonia.
3. Chirping sounds
Generally, bats communicate by making chirping sounds which is part of their echolocation sonar, which also helps them navigate through specific paths at night and locate food such as flying mosquitoes and other insects. Listen for these sounds in the evening, at night or before dawn.
4. Scratching with in the walls
Scratches or scurrying in the walls of your house might point to a colony of bats in your attic. Bats make their way into the attic space through openings along the roof line and exterior walls, but once inside the attic bats will burrow under the insulation and drop down the wall cavities
5. Stains at entry and exit access points.
A bat has a layer of grease on its coat. It leaves a greasy spot when it continuously enters and exit the same open areas of your home. Look out for these spots around holes in your house, on the walls and even on your roof. If you see these stains, be sure to clean and sterilize the area to prevent the spread of mold and diseases.
