When bats choose your Jacksonville home to nest in, they can bring disease and destruction with them. Since these winged critters do not typically approach humans on their own, their effects may not be noticeable at first. However, letting an infestation fester could lead to problems greater than homeowners may think.
While bats are most known for their ability to spread harmful diseases like rabies, perhaps the most damaging element of their presence is their waste. Also known as guano, bat poop is a little larger than rat poop and gathers in large piles below where the bats are nesting. Since it dries quickly, if you step on bat guano it will crumble and release harmful bacteria into the air, possibly spreading diseases like histoplasmosis. Additionally, bat guano has highly corrosive properties and can cause severe damages to the interior of your home. If you notice bat guano around you home, contact the experts at Critter Control® Jacksonville immediately.
