bat in albany ny

Bats can take over roof and attic spaces of houses, garages and other buildings in order to roost and nest in. Having bats and their young living in or on your home can be very damaging to it. Their feces can be corrosive and contaminate and damage insulation and other building materials, and spread serious illness to you and your family. Histoplasmosis is one such illness that is spread by breathing in a fungus that accumulates within bat droppings. Bats are also carriers of rabies. Bats in general are not super aggressive but like any animal will defend themselves by biting or scratching if they feel trapped or threatened.
