Bats are beneficial animals to have on your property, especially in summer when mosquitoes chase you indoors as soon as the sun goes down. However, when bats move into your attic, chimney or garage, it’s never good news. When it’s time for bat removal in Columbia, we hope you call Mid-Atlantic Wildlife Control to get the job done right! We have over a decade of experience in bat removal and use humane and effective methods that work.
So you have bats in your attic, what harm could they do? The key word here is “bats.” You see, bats tend to live and move around in colonies. Large colonies can easily reach 50 to a few hundred members. Imagine how much insects these bats consume! While this may sound like great news, the more bats you have, the more they eat and the more bat urine and guano will accumulate in your attic.
We’ve seen vacant properties before where bats lived unnoticed for several years. You can see where their acidic urine literally ate through the wood and in some areas formed a sort of urine icicles. You can also see piles of guano on the attic floor, sometimes so heavy that they soak through or break the ceiling underneath. Smell is always bad, but there are also health concerns related to bat guano. It’s known to serve as a breeding ground for histoplasma fungus that may lead to an infection called histoplasmosis.
Here is more information about histoplasmosis:
If you watched the video above, you know that histoplasmosis can be contracted by simply breathing in the air in an area where the fungus is present. This means that entering an attic where bats roost or used to roost can be dangerous. But don’t worry, you don’t have to go in there at all. Our team will take complete care of both the bats and their dropping. We will remove damaged insulation, scrape up droppings from beams and other surfaces, as well as disinfect everything. We wear full-face respirators and other personal protective equipment to safeguard ourselves from the risk of contracting histoplasmosis.
Now, if this is the kind of Columbia bat removal service you are looking for, then you are in the right place. If you saw bats flying out from underneath your roof after dusk, it’s likely you have a bat problem.
