Controlling bats in San Luis Obispo, and other parts of the Central Coast of California, creates challenges for some homeowners. Bats congregate in large numbers outdoors, in attics, and in barns. In order to get rid of bats, you need to prevent them from being able to return to their roost spot.
At Brezden Pest Control, our experience has shown that the best way to do this is to put up netting to prevent re-entry. In this way, the bats are not harmed at all. They get a clear sign that their previous spot is no longer accessible and are forced to move along to find a new spot to hang out.
We make sure that the nets are left up for a week to ensure they do not return.Bat droppings can be a nuisance to get rid of and they can harbor many different kinds of toxic molds and fungi which release spores that lead to disease.
Droppings that are left can grow dangerous organisms and poisonous substances if neglected over a long term.Bat droppings can be responsible for histoplasmosis outbreaks in humans and animals. Their droppings can also attract flies and breed other diseases.
Additionally, bats are small and may bite out of fear. Therefore, it’s important to always be cautious around them.
The good news is that only 5% of bats have been proven to carry rabies. The bad news is that unless the offending bat is caught after the bite, painful treatment for rabies can’t be avoided.
