Having bats living in your attic is a serious problem that needs to be dealt with as soon as possible. Bats pose a health and safety risk to your family, but attempting to get rid of them yourself is not the solution. You should leave that job to a professional.
You Can Get Hurt or Get Sick If You Try to Remove Bats Yourself
You can be bitten if you attempt to catch bats or chase them out of your house. A bite can be painful, but that can be the least of your worries. Bats can carry rabies, and the infection can be transmitted through a bite.
Even if you don’t get bitten, just being in an attic where bats have been living can put you in harm’s way if you don’t have protective gear. Bat droppings, which are known as guano, carry microorganisms that can cause disease in humans.
Touching droppings isn’t the only way that you can become infected. If you disturb bat guano by walking around in the attic, pathogens can spread through the air. If you’re not wearing proper protective equipment and you inhale the air, you can become ill.
You Have to Find out How Bats Got into Your Home
Removing bats from your attic is only half the battle. Once they’re out, you’ll have to keep them from coming back. Bats squeeze through tiny openings to get into attics. It can be hard to find those small gaps, but a professional knows how. After entry points have been identified, they’ll have to be sealed so bats won’t be able to get into your attic again.
