Most bats are insectivores that rely on echolocation to identify prey. Bat echolocation is a system in which ultrasonic sounds produce echoes, which provide detailed images of a bat’s surroundings. As bats fly, they emit these high-pitched ultrasonic sounds audible only to other bats. When the sound waves impact an insect, the echoes return to the bat and guide it to the food source. Bats are nocturnal, hunt at night and consume several hundred insects in a few hours.
Bat infestations can cause odor problems, property damage, and contamination. Bats typically reside in building walls, attics or between the roof and the ceiling. The longer the bats infest a building, the more difficult it is to remove them. Bats are carriers of rabies. The inhalation of bat droppings can also lead to histoplasmosis.
Regulations prohibit the disturbance of bat populations May through October when bats are breeding and the young cannot fly. During the other months, Home Paramount conducts bat removal and exclusion. We will conduct a thorough inspection, identify the entry points and design a professional and effective service plan.
