Bats, such as Little Brown Bat and Big Brown Bats, are beneficial to the environment. Unfortunately, when bats take up residence in your property, they become a nuisance and health concern. Bats left inside the attic area or cathedral ceilings can cause discoloration to the ceilings and leave an accumulation of guano droppings that can cause bacteria, the most prevalent is an air-borne disease to the lungs called histoplasmosis. Bats also carry parasites that can find their way into your living quarters called a bat bug, a blood sucking insect like the bed bug.
Bats can also carry rabies and many other ectoparasites that can be harmful to people and animals.
