What most people don't realize is that bats are mammals and can play an important role in the local ecosystem. Most species of bats are insectivores (70%), three species consume blood, and the remaining species feed off of fruits. Here in Ontario we have three species of bat; Silver Haired Bat, Big Brown Bat, and Little Brown Bat. While bats live outdoors there are instances when bat control specialists are called in to remove bats in a house or business.
Being nocturnal, bats use echolocation to hunt their prey at night. Bats emit their calls into the environment and listen as the echo travels off of the objects around them. Echolocation helps bats pinpoint their prey in the dark. Bats are actually the only mammals capable of self-sustained flight. Since bats are only active at night, professional bat removal is necessary when bats have begun to live in a home or business. Bats are dangerous to humans as they are hosts to parasites, bugs, and rabies. Their guano can also cause lung infections as it builds up. Rabies can be fatal to humans and animals.
