Why Bat Mitigation Is Crucial For Your Omaha Home's Safety

If you stand outside in Omaha at night, there's a good chance you'll see a bat flying around. These furry mammals are some of the most unique pests in Omaha, and while they're mostly content to be left alone, they shouldn't be allowed anywhere near your home.

Bat infestations spell trouble for homeowners, no matter which way you go about it. These critters don't intend to cause us harm, but the fact of the matter is they can – and do.

Still don't believe us, or don't see the reason why? Let's take a closer look at the underlying facts below.

Why Are Bat Infestations Unsafe?

Bat infestations are extremely unsafe for you, your pets, and your family. These mammals may not want to inflict any damage, but their mere presence spells trouble for homeowners and their loved ones.

For starters, a large number of roosting bats lead to lots of guano, which becomes acidic as it breaks down. This leads to damage to floors, walls, and ceilings, as well as the corrosion of metal objects like your HVAC system.

Bat guano also transmits serious diseases, including the dreaded histoplasmosis. This doesn't include diseases spread from bat attacks, which can lead to Marburg virus and rabies (not to mention painful bites and scratches).

It's clear you don't want a bat infestation anywhere near your home. Below, we discuss some strategies for discouraging bats from your area.

What Attracts Bats To Omaha Homes?

Bats are attracted to accessible homes, which means any property with food, water, and shelter. As long as your building has an entry point, you can count on bats flying by to explore.

Let's take a look at bat attractant factors in greater detail:

  • Plenty of food, including bugs, fruit, and other pest prey

  • Puddles of stagnant water, including ponds, fountains, bird baths, and more

  • Warm and dry places in your attic, garage rafters, or pump house

Removing attractant factors can help you reduce the possibility of bat infestation, but they cannot remove an established problem around your home. You also can't use DIY methods alone to get rid of bats effectively.

Here's why you need additional support for bat control in Omaha.

Why Bats Cannot Be Controlled Using DIY Methods Alone

Despite the dangers they pose to people and pets, you cannot perform bat control on your own. Nebraska recognizes many types of bats as threatened or endangered species, which means trying to remove them on your own may put you into legal trouble.

Plus, attempting to interact with bats may lead to bites, scratches, or disease. It's not recommended to approach bats unless you are an experienced, well-trained expert.
