Before we delve into Bat removal. Let’s briefly talk about biology and habits of nuisance bats.
Bats are a insectivore, and our little brown bats are responsible for individually eating as many as 150 mosquitos a night. Because of declining natural habitat for them to live in. It is very common for bats to live within homes and other man made structures. Unfortunately they become a nuisance (Though I would respectfully present an eviction notice over and exterminators death sentence). With bats and bat exclusion becoming so commonplace in Western NY. It is pertinent to understand no home is without risk. Materials such as ridge vents, architectural features such as eyebrows, and dormers, and chimneys. Bats have a plethora of ways to enter your home. Though they are not able to chew. These gaps (often as small as 1/4 inch) allow access to your attic, walls, and siding. When this happens bats though so vital to our environment and control of insect populations become a nuisance by definition.
The obvious nuisance is of course there mere presence and potential of entering your living quarters. However one very large detail often times we neglect, and their greatest flaw in infesting our attics, is droppings. Bats consume up to 5X’s there body weight in insects a night. With this comes comparable amounts of droppings. These droppings accumulate in piles below there roosting site, on the ground below there entry point, and any other places they roam in there travels within your walls and attic. Upstate NY bats all carry histoplasmosis. Commonly this can easily develop a fungal infection in your lungs, or a fungal eye infection (ocular histoplasmosis).
