Contrary to a popular urban myth, Maryland bats are not vampires. They don’t go after humans or go out of their way to bite you. That said, some bats do carry rabies and can transmit it to humans. Needless to say, if you have a colony of bats living in your attic, it may be easier for them to accidentally fly into your living space through an AC vent or chimney. If you wake up in the morning and find a bat in your room, be sure to examine yourself carefully for teeth marks and seek medical help right away if you find any.
But even though getting rabies from bats is possible, it happens rarely and it shouldn’t be your main concern. Instead, think about all the bat guano and urine a large colony of bats could leave in your attic. Bat guano can become a breeding ground for bacteria and fungi. And bat urine can slowly eat away at the wooden beams and rafters, weakening your roof. Besides, cleaning this mess up could be cumbersome and unpleasant.
Take a look at this video showing an attic after bats living there for over three decades.
Bats, although they can be a nuisance when they roost in your attic, are actually very beneficial to the environment. When they fly out to feed at night, they consume thousands of insects including pesky mosquitoes, crop-eating beetles, moths and many other pest insects. Thank bats every time you are able to hang out on your deck after sundown without a single mosquito bite.
For these and other reasons bats are protected by law in many states including Maryland. It is illegal to harm bats or disrupt their habitats, even if it’s on your property or even inside your house. Only licensed Westminster bat removal professionals can do this with a permit from the Maryland Department of Natural Resources. During certain times of year, such as in winter, bats shouldn’t be disturbed at all, because evicting them may lead to certain death. In this case, it’s recommended to postpone bat removal until bats can safely move to a different location.
