Frequently Asked Questions

People cannot get rabies from having contact with bat guano (feces), blood or urine or from touching a bat on its fur (even though bats should never be handled).

However, if you are bitten by a bat or if saliva from a bat gets into your eyes, nose or mouth, seek medical attention immediately.

Many people think bats are blind, but in fact they can see almost as well as humans.

However, at night their ears are more important than their eyes as they use a special sonar system called ‘echolocation’, meaning they find things using echoes.

Bats are mammals in the order Chiroptera, and are the only mammals that can fly. Other mammals like flying squirrels or flying possum can glide but not fly.

Bats are nocturnal. They are active during the night, dusk or dawn.

Once we assess the attic then we can determine how long the bats have been present.
