Bats are the only mammals that are capable of true flight. Their wings resemble human hands with elongated fingers and a wing membrane stretched between. There are over 1,000 bat species worldwide, although the most common bat in the area is the Little Brown Bat and the Big Brown Bat. Bats contribute greatly to humans everyday life by controlling insect populations. A large bat colony can eat up to 500,000 pounds of insects each night!

Bats stay in their roosting area during the day, hanging upside down by their feet. At dusk, the bats awaken and fly out to hunt for insects.

How do bats enter homes?

Bats will enter homes in search of shelter. The attic, chimney, or other areas of your home will offer the animal stable and warm temperatures while being protected from predators. Bats can enter your home through very small holes. They are known to gain entry though chimneys, open windows and doors, and small cracks between ceilings and walls.

Bat Damages

The main problem with bats in the attic or chimney is the number of droppings that will accumulate. Bat droppings will soil insulation, cause terrible odors and stains, and result in a loss of energy efficiency for your home. Bat guano can harbor dangerous fungal spores that can create a health risk inside of your own home.


Histoplasmosis is a respiratory disease. This disease is caused by a fungus that grows in soil enriched in animal droppings. As bat guano accumulates and stays in your attic for some time, the fungus will grow - Creating the disease right above your own head!
