Maternity season for bats
Florida is home to thirteen residential species of bats. They’re an amazing creature–the only mammals that can fly! Their wings are extremely similar to a human hand, with joints that can 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 live in your property they could greatly reduce the quantity of mosquitoes and other bothersome insects. The way that they find insects and other sources of food is quite unique. The direction of the returning sound wave indicates in which an item (like an insect) is and how big it is.
Another useful component of bats is their stool (called guano). Guano has an abundant amount of nitrogen, making it a excellent 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’s important for them to have a place to live. They normally live in trees or caves, but sometimes they become comfortable under the eaves of a persons house, or even within the house.
It is harmful for bats to live within the house for a few significant reasons.The first reason is that bats can carry rabies. Though uncommon, it is a possibility, and if a rabid bat were to become fearful and bite someone, the person could contract rabies. A rabid bat is usually signaled by heightened aggression and daytime action. Bats should not be handled. The second reason is that if bat guano collects in the house, someone could contract Histoplasmosis. Inhaling the spores of this fungus can cause serious respiratory issues that could be deadly.
The best and most humane way to rid bats from your home and put them back into the wild is by exclusion. Nuisance Wildlife Relocation will do a thorough search of the house for any openings or holes where a bat might get through. A one time bat door will be placed at every opening so the bat can get out, but not straight in. When dusk hits, the bats will fly outside to search, and be not able to return. Once all the bats have left the structure, all openings will be permanently sealed to prevent any further entry.This method is completely humane and no bats are ever 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 address the issue.
