Bats in Frederick can be useful, especially if you live near Monocacy River where mosquitoes are abundant in summer. However, bats can also be a big nuisance when they choose your attic as their roosting spot. If you have problems with bats, you can rely on Mid-Atlantic Wildlife Control for fast and effective bat removal in Frederick. We are licensed by the Maryland Department of Natural Resources (DNR) and practice humane bat removal.
If bats are so good and help with insects, what’s the harm in letting a few bats live in your attic? The attic is unused and you don’t really go up there much. While this may sound like solid logic to some people, it’s never a good idea to let bats remain in your attic for a long time, even if their presence doesn’t bother you, and here is why:
When we are talking about bats in the attic, it’s rarely just one bat. Bats live in colonies, and the colonies tend to increase in numbers if bats have shelter and plenty of food. Speaking of food, where do you think it all goes? A large bat colony means piles of bat guano in your attic and icicles of bat urine on the rafters. This is not a pretty site, and definitely not a safe one to be around.
Speaking of safety, bats in your attic can pose some dangers, but probably not the ones you are thinking about. Contrary to a popular belief, bats don’t drink blood from people, at least not the kind of bats you find in Maryland. However, bats can carry rabies virus and can transmit it to people through bites. Although this is rare, never attempt to handle a bat, especially with bare hands.
Here are some recommendations about what to do if you have a close encounter with a bat:
Another disease associated with bats is histoplasmosis. Hisotplasma is a fungus that thrives in bat guano. When spores of this fungus are inhaled by people, they can lead to a dangerous lung disease. Although histoplasmosis is for the most part manageable thanks to modern healthcare, it can lead to permanent reduction in lung capacity.
Hopefully, now you see that bats in your home, chimney or wall cavities can be more than a nuisance. But how do you get rid of them? Since bats are protected by Maryland law, the best approach to getting rid of them is by hiring a licensed Frederick bat removal professional. You need someone who knows what they are doing and who can remove bats safely and completely!
You may also want to hire someone who does more than just bat removal. Once the bats are gone, you will be left with piles of guano to clean up, which can be a dangerous task due to the above-mentioned risk of histoplasmosis. No worries, Mid-Atlantic Wildlife Control can take care of that as well!
