Did you know that in Georgia, there are 16 species of bats? The most common of those, the Little Brown Bat and Big Brown Bat are the two main ones that just might decide to make a home in your attic. Now, don’t let the name “Big Brown Bat” scare you. Even the large ones are only 3 to 4 ½ inches in size (not including wing span) and weigh just about a half of an ounce. Their tiny size is how these bats are able to find a spot to get into in your home. They find gaps and holes that already exist and squeeze their way in. Some of the most common small spots bats squeeze into are in gaps caused by warped siding, spots where there are missing bricks, broken windows, and louvers and vents in siding.Because of the warmth and darkness, attics can be an ideal place for bats to roost and nurse their young. The bats themselves don’t cause damage to your home because they don’t build nests or gnaw. However, the bat droppings (guano) and urine can build up and this is a health hazard. A common disease that can turn deadly in compromised immune systems is Histoplasmosis.
