Today we inspected a home in Goodrich Michigan and located a large maternal colony roosting in the attic. It’s important we get rid of the bats before maternity season or we will be waiting until August. Above is an entry point into the attic. Things to look for while locating the entry point of a bats is to look for the dark staining. Staining is caused from the dirt and oils of the bat fur going in and out of the hole. An exclusion device can be installed to evict the bats from the attic and keep them from returning.
Once we evict the bats from the attic we have to clean out the bat guano for health risk concerns. If the fungi and bacteria in the bat feces becomes airborne the tenants are at risk of lung infection diseases like histoplasmosis. A full attic restoration is requested to get this attic back to its proper state.
