Pest Library Description
Bats are found all across Pennsylvania.
The most common of bats in our area is the little brown bat.
including the tail, the length is about 3.5 inches with a wing span between 8-10 inches.
They are at their largest right before hibernation. The female in most cases is slightly larger than the male.
The fur color is almost bronze in color with hairless or bare wings. The wings are actually fingers with a membrane spread that allow them to fly.
Being the only mammals that fly. There are 8 species common to Pennsylvania; with and addition 2 species found as visitors to the area.
All of the species in our area are considered evening bats or common bats. Defined as true hibernators, in the winter months, they eat nothing surviving off accumulated
body fat. Bats generally live in colonies. Females gather in summer nursery colonies in numbers ranging from just a few to the thousands.
Males are generally solitary finding individual roosting locations.
Disease and Virus
Bats are no more apt to contract rabies than other mammals however, people should not handle them.
There is no scientific evidence to support that bat droppings called Guano can transmit Tb (tuberculosis) to humans. Even so, protective clothing is worn to treat and remove Guano. I am sure none of us wants to be the first scientific evidence in this matter.
Bats are filthy and ridden with lice and other parasites and vectors. Several of these parasites are not transmitted to human and pets, and they normally have short life spans without their host. A species of bedbugs have been associated with this mammal. Histoplasmosis is a common vector found in bird and bat droppings alike.
This virus, as a rule, does not survive in a dry attic where droppings have accumulated. Caution should be used when dealing with dropping regardless.
Poisoning bats can prove to be hazardous to humans, pets, and other wildlife.
extermination for this winged mammal is a questionable practice. With no registered pesticide. We proudly
trap, evict, remove, and deter this animal with a full treatment including sanitation.
|Some bats are able to bite and break human skin without the victim never noticing they have been bitten.||This animal can not gain flight raising from the ground they achieve flight by dropping into flight.|
