Bats & Rabies
Also known as hydrophobia is a viral zoonotic neuroinvasive disease that causes acuteencephalitis (inflammation of the brain) in mammals. It is most commonly caused by a bite from an infected animal, but occasionally by other forms of contact. If left untreated in humans it is usually fatal. In some countries it is a significant killer of livestock. The rabies virus makes its way to the brain by following theperipheral nerves. Theincubation period of the disease depends on how far the virus must travel to reach thecentral nervous system, usually taking a few months. Once the infection reaches the central nervous system and symptoms begin to show, the untreated infection is usually fatal within days. In the beginning stages of rabies, the symptoms are malaise, headache, and fever, while in later stages it includes acute pain, violent movements, uncontrolled excitements, depressions, and the inability to swallow water (hence the name hydrophobia). In the final stages, the patient begins to have periods of mania and lethargy, and coma. Death generally occurs due to respiratory insufficiency.

Bats & Maternity
In most species of Chioptera, or Bats the female bats usually have only one offspring per year. A baby bat is referred to as a pup. Pups are usually left in the roost when they are not nursing. However, a newborn bat can cling to the fur of the mother and be transported, although they soon grow too large for this. It would be difficult for an adult bat to carry more than one young, but normally only one young is born. Bats often form nursery roosts, with many females giving birth in the same area, be it a cave, a tree hole, or a cavity in a building. Mother bats are able to find their young in colonies of millions of pups. Pups have even been seen to feed on other mothers’ milk if their mother is dry. Only the mother cares for the young, and there is no continuous partnership with male bats.
Many laws are in place or being put into place in order to protect the continuation of bat species. For many years very little law or regulation was in place and we have seen a decline in bat populations die to bats being removed from homes and their young pups left to die unable to fend for themselves. Maternity periods are related to the latitude or how far north your state is in North America. Typically southern states start earlier and northern states start later.
Choosing to go ahead and have bats completely removed or excluded from a home during maternity season is a very poor decision. Motherless pups wander homes in the absence of their mothers searching for them and usually end up all over the homes attic and wall voids and die. Imagine large someone sticking five pounds of ground beef in various spots around your home rotting and the expense of replacing the walls, insulation and deodorizing your home. Removing all bats, and their young during a maternity season is at most a dice throw and the homeowner often becomes the loser and at a considerable expense.
Listen to your bat professional, let them inspect your bat infestation and determine the best time of year (Before April-May and After July-August) . State laws often dictate safe periods but a visual inspection and counting flights is often the best guide to determine when the pups are flying.
Example: A bat colony which typically has fights of 90 or so bats leaving a home nightly begin to jump to numbers closer to 180. This would indicate a maternal colony of 90 and then a pup for each mother flying. Actual numbers will fluctuate daily and a week or so after an increase in flight sizes is normally the best time to have a complete exclusion of your home. An inspection by a professional is always best before attempting any exclusions.
Bats Myths & Facts
However, bats do not belong in our homes and buildings and this web site is designed to help you understand bats and discern yourself from the many myths about them and finding a qualified professional from the many snake salesmen out there with gimmicks to take your money and laugh all the way to the bank. We know how to get rid of bats by bat proofing your
home, building or structure.
1. Bats both large and small are insectivores. Each bat on daily night flight can consumer about 1000 insects an hour or roughly 6000-8000 insects each and every night. This is simply the best natural pest control we have on earth and every bat if handled properly can be returned back to the wild and help us keep all the bug populations down.
2. Bats are not vampires and there is no reaosn to fear them. Myths have been running around for centuries that they can become entangled in your hair and it is far from the truth. Bats have a built in sonar like capability called echo location and can in mid flight remove a tiny mosquito flying. They also know exactly where you are and will avoid any contact with you. They may get close to
your face but they are not trying to harm or frighten you.
3. Bats are flying mammals and live in colonies if you see a bat resting I am confident a colony is also near by in your attic, soffits, behind shutters or even the hollows of a tree.
4. Bats will bite if handled. They have tiny razor like sharp teeth and should only be handled by a trained professional wearing gloves and exercising care in their handling.
5. Bats are not blind. They are however very light sensitive and are nocturnal mammals.
