Are Bats Dangerous to your health?

There is no denying that bats transmit several viruses and bacteria. The health risks associated with a bat infestation include:

  • Bat bites
  • Rabies
  • Histoplasmosis
  • Salmonellosis
  • Yersiniosis
  • SARs Coronavirus

Families with small children should especially be cautious if they have bat infestation in any part of their house.

How to resolve a Bat infestation?

If you’ve got bats in your home, or maybe even bats in your chimney, here are the best ways you can treat bat infestation:

Exclude the bats

It’s very difficult to catch bats using traps. The best solution is almost always to use bat exclusion. Your bats will likely leave at night to hunt for bugs and other prey, so why bother with the hassle of trying to trap them in your attic?

A one way door will let your bats out at night to hunt, but then stop them from being able to get back in

Seal up the house

Sealing up the home after you’ve excluded your bats is an important step. Why go through the hassle of removing your bats if you don’t plan on stopping them from getting back in.

It is vital to understand exactly where the bat entry points are and stop them from getting back in by sealing them up.

Bat Repellent

There are several bat repellents that you can find online. These generally come in the shape of teabags and emit an odor that bats cannot stand. Bat repellents are cheap and certainly worth a try. You can toss some of these repellents in the bats’ nesting area and wait for a few days to work. The chances of success for this method are up for debate.
