Lakeland Bat Removal | Trapping | Control | ExterminatorWhile the 13 different species of Florida bats help maintain the state’s economy and ecosystem by pollinating flowers, spreading fruit and plant seeds, controlling bug overpopulation, and reducing our reliance on pesticides, they can be rather unwelcome guests when roosting in the roofs, rafters, and attics of Lakeland businesses and residences. If you notice signs of bats in your building or on your property, contact the wildlife professionals at Critter Control® of Polk County before attempting any form of bat removal on your own. 

5 Signs You Have a Bat Infestation

An infestation of bats can cause destructive damage to your property and unnerving disturbances that can disrupt sleep and productivity. If you notice any of the following signs, then you likely have bats in your home or business.

1. Bat sightings

An increased presence of bats near your property in the early morning or twilight hours can signify an infestation.

2. Strange noises

Squeaking, scratching, and rustling sounds coming from your attic during the night can point to nocturnal bats living overhead.

3. Dark stains

Bat skin secretes an oily resin that can leave grease marks on ceilings, floors, walls, and points of access.

4. Foul odors

Bat urine produces an unpleasantly overpowering scent that smells like ammonia.

5. Bat feces

Visible mounds of bat droppings, also known as guano, are often deposited in piles around entry and exit points. If left undiscovered, guano can dry into a toxic powdery substance that can release airborne spores that spread infectious diseases such as histoplasmosis.

What Are the Dangers of Bat Removal

Much like any other wild animal, bats will bite and scratch if cornered or mishandled. Wounds from their teeth and claws can transmit rabies to humans and pets. Therefore, bat removal must never be attempted without proper equipment such as protective eyewear and gloves. 

There are also legal ramifications involved with bat removal in the Sunshine State. Because certain species of bats are endangered and thereby protected by law, bat removal without professional exclusion devices is illegal in the state of Florida.
