One of the unfortunate byproducts of having a bat infestation on your property are the droppings (guano) they leave behind. These bat droppings are tiny, black specks that will accumulate near the site of entry — often indicating a problem that might otherwise go unnoticed. We do not advise homeowners clean-up bat feces on their own. A professional with experience and proper training should always handle and discard wildlife droppings.
These droppings can be dangerous because they may carry a spore that, when disturbed and inhaled, can cause histoplasmosis — a respiratory illness that appears as constant flu-like symptoms, muscle pain, chest pains and shortness of breath. The illness can be potentially fatal if left untreated.
Properly cleaning bat guano can be very difficult without professional help. Bacteria that grow within bat guano can become airborne when disturbed, meaning a professional removal process is necessary to stop the spread. Additionally, the smell of bat droppings can linger. Not only will this create an uncomfortable environment in your home, the wildlife outside may be attracted to the scent in your attic to make a den of their own.
Skedaddle Humane Wildlife Control technicians are trained to identify the risks of each individual situation. Our technicians come ready to roll up their sleeves and remove every last sign that bats have been in your home. After all the droppings, urine and damaged materials have been removed, a liquid bacterial digester will be sprayed in the areas the bats lived to ensure all bacteria and odor is gone. Leave the mess that bats leave up the professionals and contact us or call 1-888-592-0387.
