Since bats aren’t all that common of household pests in West Palm, it can be difficult to know how to deal with them. Occasionally, though, bats will find your shed, attic, garage, or awning a particularly cozy spot for them to live. They will not normally attempt to harm humans, but they do get to be a nuisance with their noise and odors. Their droppings, known as bat guano, can also be harmful, as it has highly corrosive properties.
Most of the damages that comes with bats are due to their poop. Bat guano is usually found in piles and looks a little bit larger than mice droppings. It’s normally dry, so if you happen to step on it, it will crumble. And since bat guano contains dangerous fungal spores, any airborne particles could spread serious disease. If you find bat guano, be sure to call the experts at Critter Control® West Palm, as you’ll need a professional to properly dispose of it.
Many people don’t want to completely eradicate bats from their properties, so if you want to keep bats around for natural pest control, you can install a bat box on your property. Ideally, bats will use the bat box as a home instead of your house.
