The town of Potomac in the state of Maryland is a perfect home for some species of bats. The town’s climate and source of wildlife, including insects, provides an ideal habitat for the bat species of Maryland. Bats can often times find a way into the attic of your Potomac home. Attics provide the perfect place to rest for bats because it reminds them of their more natural habitats. Attics are substitutes for caves and crevices of rocks and trees that bats use normally. The roof of your attic will shield the bats from the summer storms and the temperature of your attic is often times the perfect temperature for roosting bats. Bats may seem harmless to leave in your attic, but did you know they can carry diseases and bugs? Bats are known to spread rabies and histoplasmosis, which can be harmful and even fatal to humans. Bats can also carry bed bugs and bat bugs that can infest your home.  Both types of bugs feed on people to survive and can be prevented by the elimination of bats in your home.
