Bats aren’t commonly a pest in the Ft. Lauderdale area, but when they decide to ‘hang out’ around your property, it could mean severe damages to your home or business. Bats don’t generally approach humans on their own doing, but an infestation brings other kinds of risks.
The Dangers of Bats
Perhaps one of the most well-known risks of having bats around your company or home is the spread of fatal diseases like rabies. However, risks that come from bat waste (also known as bat-guano) are more common with infestations, and may even be more damaging. Bat guano has corrosive properties, so a build-up of it could lead to damaged infrastructure of your home. Guano also contains dangerous fungal spores that can infect anyone who breathes them in, and since guano is quite dry, it can crumble easily when stepped on, creating a health hazard. Bat waste is larger than rat poop and typically forms in small piles right below where the bats are nesting. If you see bat guano on your property, contact the experts at Critter Control® Ft. Lauderdale immediately.
