Learn more about bats:
There are a wide variety of bat species in the US, though it’s usually the colonizing bat types that cause problems in buildings. Bats are not aggressive and are often very beneficial in eliminating pesky insects.
Bats are not blind and they also use echolocation as a means of navigating. A bats wings are essentially the same as our arms and hands. The bones of the hand and finger are elongated and serve to support and move the wings. The hind limbs of bats are modified for landing and hanging upside down.
Bats become a nuisance when they roost in large numbers in human dwellings. The rapid and smelly accumulation of Guano (droppings) is unsanitary and serves as a fertile breeding ground for a fungal disease called histoplasmosis, which is transferable to humans. Bats also carry rabies viral disease that caused progressive paralysis and death in mammals, including humans.
