Bat Control

While bats eat a lot of mosquitoes and other bugs and are considered important to ecosystems, they do not make good tenants when they infest homes. In fact, they are likely to cause damage in the areas they infest and their droppings can release spores that contribute to histoplasmosis. If you're concerned that bats have invaded your attic or another part of your house, contact Harris Pest Control for effective bat control!

Frequently Asked Questions

Bat Control FAQs

Are bats dangerous?

Although bats are considered beneficial, they can also be dangerous to human and pet health. Bats in South Carolina are associated with life-threatening diseases including rabies. It's important to note that not all bats carry rabies though.

Additional health risks associated with bats comes from their droppings, also called guano. Histoplasmosis is a fungal disease that is contracted through airborne spores of bat guano. Symptoms vary widely but may include flu-like respiratory symptoms, general malaise, fever, chest pains, and a dry or nonproductive cough. In some cases, it can prove fatal. 

Do bats cause damage?

Yes, bats can cause quite a bit of damage when they infest attics and other spaces. Not only do bats damage and contaminate insulation, the accumulation of their droppings and urine can damage support beams, drywall, and other building materials as well as cause decay. Bat droppings also produce an unpleasant odor. 

How can I tell if I have bats in the house?

Signs you have bats in your attic or elsewhere in your home include, but are not limited to:

  • Spotting bats coming and going from an opening in your home at sunrise and sunset
  • The discovery of bat droppings (guano) in the attic, on the porch or deck, and near entry points
  • Chirping sounds coming from your attic and other infested areas
  • Staining at entry points caused by the oil or grease bats excrete through their skin
