Bat in Attics
Seasonal Alert: high
As autumn approaches, some species of bats search for places to hibernate, including attics, basements, and house cellars. While they are helpful as insect predators, their presence can lead to hygiene issues due to the accumulation of guano and urine, resulting in unpleasant odors and a potential risk of disease transmission.

Facts About The “Masked Bandits”
Bats are crucial to our environment, feasting on 3000 insects a night and contributing significantly to pest control. However, they can also become an inconvenience in populated areas; although myths of bats getting tangled in hair or drinking blood have been debunked here in Canada, these creatures still bring about their own set of problems that has managed to capture the attention – and dismay -of many people wanting them gone from their buildings.
- Bats may seem small and harmless, but those who get too close are at risk of being bitten or inhaling their feces which can cause the dangerous lung infection histoplasmosis. The young, elderly, or people with weakened immune systems have a higher chance of developing this flu-like illness if exposed to bats and should take extra precaution when around them.
- Cold temperatures motivate bats to settle in for some much-needed rest, with their hibernation period typically stretching from September until April. If one of its parents is killed, a young bat may choose to join them and not fight for survival. In addition, these nocturnal creatures feed every 24 to 48 hours – so trying hard as you might won’t help rid your home of an entire colony since there’s likely more where that came from.
- Keeping bats at bay is no easy feat – their ability to navigate even the tiniest entry points of 1cm in diameter leaves homeowners vulnerable. But with consequences such as horrific odors and further damage, it’s worth finding a way to prevent these critters from entering your abode.
