Signs of a Bat in Your HomeYou’ll typically smell bats before you see or hear them. These shy guests can leave behind up to 20 guano pellets every day. This waste not only presents a strong, unpleasant odor but also quickly rots wood, corrodes drywall, and encourages mold growth. It’s important not just to remove bats but also to properly clean and disinfect your attic space. Hire a professional team to safely remove guano without affecting your health or continuing to compromise your home. You may also hear telltale sounds of a bat colony in your attic. A single bat tends to stay relatively quiet, but a number of bats together will start to squeak. Squeaking sounds are typically signs of a large colony and a new litter of bat pups.
