Health Risks Bats

• Histoplasmosis is a fungal infection that thrives in bat guano. The infection can cause serious respiratory ailments. The elderly, young children, people with immunity disorders and asthma sufferers are also at risk for developing meningitis. Common symptoms include chills, fever, chest pain, cough, mouth sores, neck stiffness, shortness of breath, rashes, skin lesions and skin nodules. Scarring in the chest area may also cause complications involving blood vessels, heart, esophagus and lymph nodes.

• Rabies is a potentially fatal disease. If you are bitten by a wild animal, you should seek immediate medical attention. Don’t wait for the symptoms of rabies to appear. Bat bites are extremely small and difficult to detect. The rabies virus infects the central nervous system and brain.

• Mites depend on wild animals and other living hosts for their sustenance. Many people make the mistake of assuming that mites are actually bed bugs. Even professional exterminators fail to properly identify the little buggers. Make sure you consult a knowledgeable pest control professional if you experience a bat infestation. Treating a residence or business for bedbugs will not eliminate disease carrying mites.
