Wacky Pest Wednesday: Bats
Happy Wednesday, Tri-County Pest Control fans, and welcome to our latest edition of Wacky Pest Wednesday! Today, we’re going to take a look at a pest that you’re bound to see this summer: the bat.
Bats are what we consider to be a beneficial pest, since they will eat several other invasive pests such as mosquitoes, beetles, and moths. Due to this diet, they are extremely important to the immediate ecosystem for population control, and will become much more active as summer takes its full hold.
However, if a bat found it’s way into your home, by no means should you keep it there. They are known for carrying several diseases, such as rabies, and their droppings can give off aerial microbes that can cause severe breathing complications in those with asthma or other breathing issues. Bats will often group together, so if you have one bat inside, chances are that you have a few.
We cannot stress enough that you should not touch or try to get rid of a bat on your own. Bats are not your average pest–they will fight back. Instead, give us a call, and we’ll handle bat removal in a safe and humane way that will leave the bat returning to the ecosystem where he belongs.
So, if you find yourself in a position this summer where you have Dracula in your attic, give us a call right away. Whether he is a bat or a vampire, you can be assured that we will get him out safely, and give your family back the sense of security that they rightfully deserve.
Enjoy the rest of your week, Tri-County Pest Control fans!
