Taking Caution with Pasadena Bats

Throughout the state of Maryland, ten different species of bats continue to call us home. Because of this, you are sure to find Pasadena bats throughout the area should you have residence there. While Pasadena bats may seem small and harmless, they should really be handled with care and by a professional. Pasadena bats can cause serious damage to your home while also carrying harmful parasites and diseases. The main disease that Pasadena bats can carry that is known to be harmful to humans is rabies. Bats can transmit the disease by biting an individual directly or by the infected saliva entering an eye, nose, mouth, or wound of a human without them being aware. When a human becomes infected by rabies, the virus begins to attack their nervous system, which can then infect the brain and ultimately cause death if left untreated. Some rabies symptoms include:

  1. Fever
  2. Headache
  3. Agitation
  4. Difficulty swallowing
  5. Hallucinations

Another well-known disease carried by bats is histoplasmosis. Histoplasmosis is caused by a fungus that grows in the soil contaminated by the droppings of bats and birds. The symptoms of histoplasmosis can be mistaken as those of pneumonia, and like pneumonia, the disease can become fatal if left untreated.
