Bat colonies typically take residence in attic spaces of —homes, churches – other buildings. they can live there for years without the homeowner ever knowing.
This is a serious issue due to the amount of guano(droppings) that can accumulate in – attic spaces and eaves. Bat’s guano carry many health hazards including histoplasmosis that causes respiratory issues. Not to mention the weight of the accumulated guano will actually weigh down the ceiling -in some cases cause the ceiling to fail and fall into the living place.
Bats also have another secret weapon in their arsenal. most carry Bat bugs. Bat bugs are almost identical to bed bugs and cause the same issue. Bat bugs will feed on the blood of anything living and can be very difficult on their own to get rid of.
Bat control in your home can be very difficult to manage. Bat removal can be dangerous due to the diseases they may carry.

For their size, bats are the slowest reproducing mammals on Earth. At birth, a pup weighs up to 25 percent of its mother’s body weight, which is like a human mother giving birth to a 31 pound baby! Offspring typically are cared for in maternity colonies, where females congregate to bear and raise the young. Male bats do not help to raise the pups
