Bats are nocturnal mammals that feed mostly on insects. There are several bat species native to Arkansas, the most common being the Red Bat and they’re usually the first bat to emerge from darkness in the evening.
Bats can enter dwellings through very small openings (approximately ½ inch) and are commonly found in attics. Bat entry is made through holes in rooflines, chimneys, gables or vents. Once inside their droppings (guano) accumulate which can be extremely odorous and serve as a breeding ground for disease.
Bats are known carriers of rabies and other insects such as ticks and fleas.
Since they feed at night, Curry’s trained and licensed bat pest control professionals will identify and seal off entry points after dusk to prevent bats from reentering your home. Any remaining bats will be safety captured and released to find a new home in a natural sheltered area. If you have bats, then don’t try to handle them yourself. Call Curry’s today.
