With bats, the general filth and annoyance associated with these mammals are the reasons why you need to remove them from your premises as soon as possible.
Bats have a bad rap for being known to drink blood. But in reality, they usually feed on insects. And if you have bats flying around your house, it doesn’t mean it is haunted. It just means you need to remove them. Bats, like people, want to meet their needs, which are fresh water, food, and shelter.
