WILDLIFE REMOVAL AND EXCLUSION
Bats in the United States are almost always beneficial. Many bats feed on insects and can consume up to half their body weight in one night’s feeding. Occasionally, however, they become a nuisance inside buildings or pose a public health problem. The bats that most often become a problem around people are those that live in colonies or groups, such as little brown bats and big brown bats. These species sometimes hibernate or roost inside buildings. If you need to get rid of bats or have found a bat in your home, it is important to remember that bats can be very dangerous animals if handled incorrectly. Many carry infectious diseases, such as rabies, and should only be handled by wildlife experts who are trained in bat control and expulsion techniques.
