Did you find bats in the attic of your Potomac home? If so, it’s time to call our Potomac bat removal experts. The city of Potomac is located near the Potomac River. Lots of water means lots of insects in summer, which makes both banks of the Potomac an ideal habitat for bats. In nature, bats live in caves, trees and other crevices where they can hide during the daytime. However, as the temperatures drop, bats may move into warmer housing ideal for hibernation—your attic.
If you know anything about bats, you’ve probably read somewhere that bats are beneficial to the environment. That’s absolutely true! They help control the population of insects, which means fewer itchy bumps and more outdoor comfort for you. However, bats living in your attic can be costly and even dangerous for your family!
Bats are rather small, so they don’t have any big claws or teeth to damage your home. However, because bats eat at night and then spend the whole day hanging in your attic and digesting, that’s where their urine and feces end up. Bat urine, like most similar substances, is acidic and may eventually weaken the structure of the wooden beams in your attic. Considering that bats are small, it may take a long time to do major damage. However, bat poop (guano) piles up much faster and may stain your bedroom ceiling.
Both types of excrement will also create an awful smell in your stuffy attic and may even cause the spreading of disease. Bat urine and feces serve as a breeding ground for many fungi and bacteria, including the histoplasmosis virus. If the fungal spores get into your home’s HVAC system, your entire family may get sick.
