Wildlife getting into commercial and residential properties in Lemont is a common occurrence. Wildlife, not in their natural habitat, can cause several problems. They can become a threat to health, safety, and properties and as a result, removal of wildlife is necessary.
Wildlife intruding homes and yards may vary depending on where you are located. One of the common property intruders are bats.
Bats can be found anywhere in the world except in places with extreme temperatures. They are the only mammals that can fly.
Bats find shelter in caves, hollow spaces, trees, and unoccupied buildings. They can either be solitary or form colonies.
There are about 1,000 bat species and their behavior may slightly vary according to their species. About 70 percent of bat species eat insects. Did you know that a single bat can consume up to about 1,000 mosquitoes in one hour? Their insect-eating habit makes them an effective insect control, which is beneficial to the environment.
Bats as Pests
While bats can be beneficial to the environment, they can cause problems when they seek shelter in buildings, particularly in attics.
Bats living in attics often remain undetected until they have multiplied at a significant number. The main cause of the problem is bat waste. Bats have a fast metabolism. Their feces can accumulate and fill up an entire space over time. Accumulated bat dung, also called bat guano, can attract other organisms which can be harmful to the health.
Bat urine leaves a strong and pervasive smell, which can make your home an unpleasant place to stay in. Additionally, bat waste can stain walls and cause damage to attic floorboards.
