 Bat Damage

Bats can wiggle into the smallest, most inconspicuous places. Some of the more common roosting areas in your home are: Crawl spaces, gable vents, ridge vents, roof returns, under broken tiles on your roof, behind shutters, in chimneys, attics, behind roof rack boards, under decks, steps and in your garage.

When they decide to roost in your home as a colony, the feces and urine build up becomes extremely toxic. Bats do carry rabies. Although humans are rarely bitten by bats, their feces or guano carries toxic mold spores called Histoplasmosis. This is an airborn disease that mainly affects your lungs. This disease can be fatal to those with a weak immune system such as the very young or elderly.

Let Florida Wildlife Removal's highly trained professionals safely remove your bats, meticulously remove the guano and replace the insulation in your attic.
