Common Bat Damage
Bats, despite their size, can cause severe damage, mostly in the form of unpleasant scents. The minimum size of crack needed for them to slip through is roughly the diameter of a dime.
- Large deposits of guano often found in corners of attics
- Presence in chimneys, although sometimes by accident
- Bites or scratches that can lead to potentially fatal diseases like rabies
Are Bats Actually Dangerous?
The CDC recommends avoiding coming into contact with a bat, since the majority of human rabies cases reported in the last 20 years were transmitted by bats. The relocation and removal process is also best left to professionals, as bats will not hesitate to bite if threatened. If you are finding signs of bats on your property, please call our Wildlife X Team® San Antonio at 830.253.2810 today. We can help you solve your bat problems, now and for good!

More About Bats
Bats mate during fall and winter, but the pups are not fully developed until spring—when bat populations are most prominent. Texas is home to a number of bat species, including the big brown bat, big free-tailed bat, the Mexican free-tailed bat (which, along with the armadillo, is a state mammal!), among others.
