What Are The Camden Maine Bat Removal Problems Associated With Bats In A Camden, Maine, Home?
Bats can carry mites, fleas, and especially bat bugs. These blood-sucking parasites that feed on bat blood are closely related to bed bugs. The two are often confused as they have very similar appearances. Bat bugs prefer bat blood and stay within a bat colony but can feed on humans, causing a similar bite to a bed bug.
One of the most significant issues with having bats inside an attic or wall cavity is the collection of bat guano. Unfortunately, bats are not potty trained only to poop outside. During the summer months, when bats feed heavily on insects, each bat can produce 10+ droppings daily inside the home. If many bats are in your home, this guano can accumulate quickly – think compound interest.
The primary diseases associated with bats are rabies and histoplasmosis. Histoplasmosis is a fungal disease that can be contracted by breathing in the spores that grow in bat guano. Bat waste is mixed in with the attic insulation, with some piles of guano accumulating where the bats do most of their roosting above the insulation. In large bat infestations, we have observed piles of bat guano over 1 foot high in certain attic spots.
We can completely remove the contaminated insulation and sanitize the area. Finally, we install new insulation making the attic as close to new as possible.

Also, one of the things that we notice in our line of work is the odor from the mixture of bat droppings and urine. On some bat inspections, the noxious odor is evident and detected upon entering the home’s second floor.
While we have mentioned some of the negatives of having bats roosting in Camden, Maine homes, we believe bats are a vital part of our ecosystem.
All our bat removal methods are live removals utilizing one-way exit doors that let the bats leave the house on their own during their regular life pattern of feeding at night.
