Bat Damage and Control Options

When bats take up residence in a building, they often enter through attic and roof vents chimneys, various conduits and even around windows. Discovery of a few bats in a house is frequently a problem, and can even decrease the value of the home.

There are several kinds of damage that bats can inflict on homes and buildings, including rub marks, and the presence of guano. Bat dropping cause an unpleasant smell, and is one that can even be detected outside of the structure that contains it. Smell is also a major problem when the animals die in hard to reach or inaccessible areas. Decomposition of both the guano and bodies can also attract insect and bug infestations as well.

Guano also provides perfect conditions for the development of microorganisms, many of which are harmful to humans. Accumulations can also result in stains on walls and ceilings, create safety hazards and collapse ceilings. Bat excrement may also contaminate stored food, commercial products, and work surfaces.

The presence of bat roosts near human living areas can result in excreta, animal dander, insect fragments, and various microorganisms entering air ducts. Such contaminants can result in airborne particles of public health significance (Frantz 1988).
