Common Bat Removal Questions

Throughout the state of Maryland, there are seven different species of bats that can be found. While these bats are quite useful in our ecosystem, they are not useful in our Maryland homes. That is why bat removal services are essential when a bat has made its way into your Maryland home. Bat removal should be conducted humanely and by a professional so the animals are never harmed during the process. However, when dealing with bat removal, many Maryland residents have a number of questions. Here are some of the more commonly asked questions regarding bat removal.

  1. Will a bat leave without human force? Bats could potentially leave your home after a period of time, but they will leave behind serious damage. You should never assume a bat will leave your Maryland home on its own accord. If you know that a bat is living in your attic or other area of your house, bat removal services should be called immediately before any serious damage can occur.
  2. Is bat removal for my attic necessary? Bat removal is always necessary once a bat enters your attic. Bat droppings can cause serious health risks to your family while bat activity can cause damage to the structure of your attic. As soon as bats are spotted in your attic, bat removal services should be your next step.
  3. Should I trap the bats myself? Never attempt to trap a bat or remove a bat on your own. This could put yourself and the bat in harm’s way. Always leave bat removal to the professionals.
  4. Are bats dangerous to humans? While bats are not known to specifically attack humans, they can be harmful. Bat guano can cause serious health problems for humans due to exposure. Bats are also the number one cause for rabies infection in humans.
