You should feel safe and secure anytime you’re in your home, and having unwanted intruders regardless of what they are, can ruin that sense of security. Bats are becoming more common in Fort Worth each year, and as a result, have developed a reputation for taking up residence in homes throughout the area. Bats don’t normally come into contact with humans, and an infestation that is allowed to grow within your home can lead to some serious health issues for your loved ones.
Bats are most well-known perhaps for their ability to spread harmful diseases like rabies, but one of the biggest hazards of bats comes from their feces, also known as guano. Bat guano is a breeding ground for harmful fungus and bacteria, and if disturbed, can shoot these spores into the air and put your family at risk for dangerous diseases like histoplasmosis.
In addition to the health risks of bat guano, it possesses corrosive properties that can damage important structures within your home if it is allowed to sit for long periods of time. If you notice piles of guano accumulating anywhere on your property, it’s time to call Critter Control®
