The Dangers of Living With Bats
    While they can be nice to have around, they can be be dangerous when living in people's homes. If bats get into a house, they have the ability to go anywhere in the house though the walls. They can cause extensive damage to the house as well. Bats can also carry rabies and other bat-related diseases, so it is important to be careful around them.


Via, histoplasmosis is an infection caused by breathing in spores from a fungus that is typically found in bat droppings. Most people with histoplasmosis never develop symptoms, but it can be a serious condition for infants and individuals with weakened immune systems. 

Federal Protection

Via, bats contribute a lot to the ecosystem. They are pollinators, they spread seeds, and they eat pests. Because of this, and declining numbers in the population, many species of bats are federally protected. White-nose Syndrome, a fungal disease, has killed millions of bats in North America over the last decade.
