    Get the Basics About Bat Removal in Tampa

    Bats are nuisances for Tampa, Florida residents when they inhabit the attics, crawlspaces or even basements of houses or commercial buildings. Aside from this slightly inconvenient tendency, the mammals are beneficial for our ecosystem, and highly protected by Florida and United States laws. The most vast mammals in the world after the rodent family, bats contribute to our ecosystem by pollinating flowers, spreading seeds and consuming large quantities of harmful bugs and insects, such as mosquitoes, thus limiting the need for pesticides. Guano, or bat droppings, is an excellent natural fertilizer as well. Through all of these natural functions, bats’ existence contributes to the agricultural industry, helping the economy of the United States.

    Some Tampa, Florida residents are installing bat houses on their properties, so that bats reside inside of them and control the population of harmful bugs and insects surrounding their properties. The fact that bats become an annoyance when inhabiting attics or crawlspaces is mostly due to the fear of bats that many people have. The major issue with bat infestations is actually an accumulation of guano, which can be dangerous for the health of pets and humans if not removed. Bats are not quarrelsome, nor do they attack people. The fear that most people feel comes from fictional or mythological portrayals. In literature and mythology, bats are presented are evil creatures who hang out in cemeteries and church towers. Bats do love church towers, as they love all tall buildings where humans seldom bother them. Bats would much rather be roosting or hibernating in caves or old mine shafts, but those particular places are scarce in Tampa, Florida.

    Even if bats are not aggressive, you should not attempt to remove them on your own. They do have tiny teeth and may bite you if they feel like their lives are in danger. There is also a strict set of state and federal laws regarding the removal of bats from your property.

    Florida state laws demand that bats be left untouched between the months of May and August as the younger bats are unable to fly and would die without their mother. They also hibernate from late November through the spring, so it is important to check with a Bat Specialist as soon as you suspect you may have a colony making use of your attic eaves.

    The guano buildup left behind by bat colonies can pose serious health concerns, especially if not removed for a number of years. The regular exposure to guano is harmful because of toxins that exist in the excrement and are released when the bats defecate or when the guano is disintegrating. Ammonia is also an issue when it comes to guano, as its smell can linger on for years inside of your home or place of business if not properly removed.
