Bat in Attic Removal & Bat Guano Removal Lakeland Highlands, FL
Lakeland Highlands Bats often become a problem for homeowners. These bats will gain access to homes attics, buildings, and other man-made structures. Bats are known to colonize in large colonies upwards of 1000 bats. Once these bats have gained access to a home’s attic or other structure they will begin to form these large colonies. Bats in an attic or structure occupied by persons can cause serious health risks. Bat fecal matter is called bat guano. This guano can contain a fungus called histoplasmosis.
Types of Bats of Lakeland Highlands Florida
Florida is home to 13 bat species. There are several types of bats within Lakeland Highlands, FL that will colonize in buildings and homes attics. The most common bat that will roost in buildings and homes are the big brown bat.
The photo here is representative of the damage that a bat colony can do if not properly taken care of. The result is usually a very large amount of bat guano buildup below the areas the bats are roosting near. In this example to the left, the bats were roosting in the soffit of a single-family home. These bats had been in the attic for an extended period of time causing a large build of bat guano.
Histoplasmosis is an infectious condition caused by a fungus known as Histoplasma. This fungus is present in the soil, and it is especially common in soil containing bat and bird droppings. Infection occurs when these spores, are inhaled, happening after a roost has been disturbed. Typically, the spores become airborne through a home renovation, cleanup, and demolition projects. Construction workers, farmers, landscapers, and others who frequently work with soil are at an elevated risk of this infection.
Most histoplasmosis infections are mild and produce either no symptoms or a minor influenza-like illness. On occasion, the disease can cause high fever, blood abnormalities, pneumonia, and even death.
Bats gain access to structures through an entry point as small as a 1/2 inch. If you suspect that you have bats within your home’s attic contact Xceptional Wildlife Removal for a no-obligation home inspection.
Snake Removal & Snake Control Lakeland Highlands, FL
Snake removal within the Lakeland Highlands Florida area is another common service request call received. Snakes often find ways into businesses, homes, garages, vents, and even attics. Once they are in an attic, they will burrow holes into the insulation. Once in a structure, it is oftentimes difficult to locate them. This type of snake problem commonly occurs most often during the winter months.
Snakes are searching for a food source, which in many instances are rodents. Snakes are more often found in areas inhabited by rats, and mice. The best practice is to eliminate the food source resulting in an elimination of snakes.
Often times snake types are confused. Many times the Brown Watersnake is often confused with the Florida Cottonmouth. They have similarities in patterns which leads to misidentification. Florida is home to a variety of venomous and nonvenomous snakes, a total of 44. It helps to know the difference between a venomous and a non-venomous snake. A guide to identifying snakes includes their color pattern, head shape, and whether they have pits (or holes) on their heads. Visit Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission website for more information on Florida’s snake species.

These holes vary in size and can be a small hole to a relatively large one. An armadillo hole may be up to a foot in diameter and several feet deep, these animals are excellent diggers and have been known to destroy a lawn in a single night.
