Many residents of the Coachella Valley may be familiar with bats, but having them in your attic is not ideal. Some bats may carry rabies, and the accumulation of bat feces can also carry serious disease. While bats don’t attack people, those that are infected with rabies can be too sick to fly away if a person comes too close. For this reason it’s highly important that you or your family don’t go near a bat you might see on your property.
Bats hunt for insects at night in open fields and marshes. During the day, they roost in places like caves, tree hollows, bridges, and rock crevices. Bats can also roost in and around homes, in doorways, patios, attics, cracks in chimneys and walls, and under roofing and siding.
The common signs of a bat infestation are: seeing a bat in your house, bat droppings, squeaking and high-pitched sounds, scratch marks on the walls, brown or black stains around holes, dead bats around your property, and foul odors in the attic.
