If you happen to hear fluttering or scratching in your home, you may have a few bats living in your attic. Although bats, in small numbers, do not pose much of a danger, you will still want to contact wildlife control services to safely and effectively remove the animals. This is because bats will likely stay in your home for long periods of time, breed, and come back again, with more bats added to their colony. Bats in large numbers can be noticeable, dangerous, and damaging.
The damage that occurs from bats living in the home can range from small damages to large damages. Some of these potential issues include:
- Guano: Guano is the term used for bat droppings. When you have several bats living in your attic, piles of guano can be left behind, leaving a strong, unpleasant odor. In addition to the odor, human exposure can lead to Histoplasmosis, which is a potentially serious fungal disease.
- Urine: While bat urine is fresh, it does not have an odor, however, over time the odor will become present and strong. In addition, bat urine can leave stains on household items, walls, furniture, and wood. And it can also cause the wood to deteriorate.
- Chewing: Bats can cause damages to your home by chewing on wood, insulation, and wiring.
- Disease: In addition to Histoplasmosis, bats carry many other diseases that can be transmitted to humans and/or fur babies. These diseases include rabies, Nipah, Hendra, Ebola, and Marburg.

Bat excluders are a device that will allow bats to leave your home but will not allow the bat to return. It is a one-way door to successfully rid of the nuisance animal in your attic.
