Bats Nuisance Concerns:

  • – Guano (bat droppings) is a fertile ground for fungal diseases called “Histoplasmosis” and can be transferred to humans who breathe in the fungal spores
  • – Histoplasmosis can be fatal
  • – Caused by the fungus Histoplasma capsulatum
  • – Symptoms include fever, anemia, and weight loss
  • – Bat bugs (commonly confused with—and related to–bed bugs) are usually found along with a colony.
  • – Known carriers of rabies and other diseases
  • – Most rabies deaths in the US are associated with bats

Bat Removal:

  • – Can only be killed if creating a nuisance in dwellings
  • – Best technique: APCS will install “ONE WAY” bat doors so that they can get out but not back in
  • – Within a week, APCS will pull traps and seal the entry
  • – For reliable removal, check for more entries and seal them all
  • – Guano clean up services are offered

General Information about Bats:

  • – Nocturnal
  • – A single bat can eat up to 1,200 insects in an hour
  • – Use “Echolocation,” similar to sonar, to navigate around objects in the dark
  • – Usually have one litter a year consisting of 1-2 babies, typically in the late spring
  • – Only need a half inch or less of space to enter a house or building
