The beautiful natural areas of Weymouth, MA are home to an abundance of wildlife, including bats. As harmless as they may seem, these critters can cause lots of problems if they’re left to roost on your property for too long. Bats are also a protected species, making bat removal and exclusion difficult at certain times of the year.
If you’re dealing with a bat problem in your Weymouth home or business, the professionals at Critter Control® of Boston are here to help.
Signs of Invasive Bats
There are several signs that bats are roosting on your property, including:
Listen for scratching and screeching noises coming from the attic or walls, especially at night.
Bat guano and urine give off a strong ammonia-like smell and can indicate where the bats might be nesting.
Bats will squeeze through tiny openings in your home to reach a safe space. When they do, they’ll leave greasy stains around these entry points.
The Risks of a Bat Infestation
When nesting, bats can damage the insulation, wiring, and structure of your home. Bat droppings can deteriorate flooring and carry a fungus that can be toxic if inhaled. Bats will also bring fleas and ticks into your home that can latch on to pets or other family members. If they feel threatened, bats will bite or scratch and can transmit diseases like histoplasmosis and rabies.
