Florida is home to at least thirteen residential species of bats. They’re an awesome creature–the only mammals who can fly! Their wings are extremely like a human hand, with joints that may close and grip. They exert little to no attempt doing this, because gravity keeps their talons closed.They have many useful qualities that humans may overlook. A nocturnal animal, bats will eat tens of thousands of insects in 1 night. If bats are living in your property they could significantly reduce the quantity of mosquitoes and other bothersome insects. The way they find insects and other sources of food is quite unique. When they make a sound, the sound wave goes out and bounces back from the first thing it comes across. The direction of the returning sound wave indicates where an object (like an insect) is and how large it is.
Another helpful component of bats is their stool (called guano). Guano has an abundant amount of nitrogen, making it a wonderful fertilizer. Certain enzymes can be extracted from bat guano and used in laundry detergent and other cleaning products.Bats contribute greatly to the environment, and it is important for them to have a place to call home. They normally live in trees or trees, but sometimes they become comfortable under the eaves of a persons house, or even inside the house.
It’s dangerous for bats to live inside the house for a few important reasons.The first reason is that bats can carry rabies. Though uncommon, it’s a possibility, and if a rabid bat were to become frightened and bite somebody, the person could contract rabies. A rabid bat is usually signaled by increased aggression and daytime action. Bats should not be handled. The second reason is that if bat guano collects from the home, someone could contract Histoplasmosis. Inhaling the spores of the fungus can cause serious respiratory issues that could be deadly.
Nuisance Wildlife Relocation will do a comprehensive search of the home for any openings or holes where a bat could get through. A one time bat door will be set at every opening so that the bat can get out, but not back in. When dusk hits, the bats will fly out to hunt, and be unable to return. Once all of the bats have left the structure, all openings will be permanently sealed to prevent any further entry.This method is totally humane and no bats are harmed during this procedure. This company prides itself on treating animals with the respect they deserve. If a bat is found indoors, Nuisance Wildlife Relocation is available to solve the problem.
