What Are the Signs I Have Bats In My Attic?

Unless you've had the experience before, bats in your home isn't something you think about often.

Do Bats Have an Odor?

If you notice strange odors coming from your attic or even notice that maybe your pet has brought a dead bat into your home, you may have bats.

Below we have provided 4 signs to look for to know if you have a bat problem!

  • 1. Bat Droppings 
    Bat droppings often look dark in color and pebbly. It's usually found in piles near the entrance and exit of where the bats have been living. Bat droppings do pose a health risk to both your pets and your household, make sure to stay away from it as much as you can. Contact us today to come and inspect your home.
  • 2. Oily Streaks Around Your Home 
    If you notice oily streaks around your home, this is a sure mark that bats are in your home or attic. The oil that bats produce on their body rubs off as they are entering into small holes to get to where they have been living. The more they do it, the more these oily streaks become an obvious visual sign.
  • 3. Sounds in the Attic 
    Even though bats are silent flyers, they are usually heard when they are trapped somewhere in your attic or behind home walls. You can hear their wings hitting drywall, wooden structures, or even air vents, depending on where they have been trapped within your household.
  • 4. Strong Pungent Odor from Attic 
    If you go up in your attic and you can smell a strong ammonia-type odor, this is probably a bat infestation. Even if you aren't able to access all of your attics, that strong smell is a very sure sign that your attic may be infested with bats. Contact our expert Birmingham bat control services for the help you and your household deserve.

Can Bats Be A Health Risk?

When bats breach your home, they can pose multiple risks to you and your family. Bats carry more zoonotic viruses (viruses that jump species) per species. Studies over the last few decades have revealed that exposure to bats has resulted in more than half of the confirmed human Rabies cases in the United States.

Bats are known carriers and living reservoirs for more than 60 human-infecting viruses including:

  • Rabies
  • SARS
  • Ebola
  • Nipah

Bats also leave behind unhealthy conditions of urine and guano (bat droppings). Bat guano is known to cause Histoplasmosis pneumonia and can cause severe complications, such as:

  • Acute respiratory infections
  • Heart problems
  • Adrenal insufficiency
  • Meningitis

While bat guano doesn't have a strong odor, the urine will be very noticeable as a pungent ammonia/vinegar smell. It is also fairly corrosive and can cause a variety of structural issues if left unchecked.
