Bats are at times portrayed as bloodsuckers, but in reality, fewer than five out of 2,000+ species actually do. These tiny mammals are well-known for eating significant amounts of insects (effectively keeping the insect population down!) and utilizing echolocation to find their prey.
Unfortunately, as helpful as they can be, bats sometimes make their way into your home, intentionally or accidentally, and cause issues. These mammals belong outside, not in your Ann Arbor home! If you are dealing with bat problems and require bat control, bat exclusion, and bat prevention services, call the professional bat removal company, Critter Control of Ann Arbor, today or contact us here!

Professional Bat Control

Bat control services in Ann ArborA major benefit of bat control for Ann Arbor homeowners is protection against the diseases they can transfer to humans and pets. Some common issues presented by bats include:

  • Bats can create a number of problems for homeowners in Ann Arbor.
  • The amount of droppings they can accumulate creates terrible odors and can pose a health threat to humans.
  • Bats can wiggle their way into homes through holes as small as a dime (6mm).
  • Especially in the summer, bats (especially baby bats) can get into homes accidentally by flying through open windows or doors.
  • Bat droppings, or guano, is considered in certain places to be effective fertilizer, but the generally held belief is that it is extremely hazardous to human health. The fungal spores it contains can cause a respiratory disease known as histoplasmosis.
