When you hear the word “bat,” do you picture a vampire bat laying wait in the dark corners of your house to attack? If you do, you may be glad to hear that’s not what bats do at all. In reality, they’re only looking for protection and a place to sleep. Though bats have good intentions, your house shouldn’t be their safe haven. At Fox Pest Control, we want to carefully remove your nocturnal guests so you and your family feel safe and secure.
You might already know for sure that you have a bat problem. But here are a couple of the most common signs of a bat problem in Buffalo Area.
Bat droppings will be gathered in attic spaces, often along with urine.
Bat guano and urine together may smell something like ammonia after a while.
During the night or day, bats may move around in their hiding places and cause small noises.

In order to survive, all bats need to roost for a place to sleep. Sometimes, attics, gables, or other home spaces provide the best protection for them.
Bats account for around 70% of all rabies cases in the U.S according to the CDC, although rabies infections are rare thanks to bat control efforts. Bats also harbor many other viruses and pathogens.
If you’re ever in close contact with a bat, seek medical care immediately.
Although not every bat necessarily has rabies, about 70% of all the rabies cases in the United States are caused by interactions between humans and bats.
Some people are afraid that a vampire bat will come and suck their blood. The reality is that, out of the 1,200 species of bats out there, only three of them drink blood. None of these species drink human blood. Most of them go after cattle or other livestock.
Bat feces (called “guano,”) can grow a dangerous type of disease on it called histoplasmosis. This disease affects the lungs and can be life-threatening, especially for people with a history of respiratory disease.
We have never needed pest control in the past and we randomly called Fox. We couldn't be happier with Phil the technician that came to service our home. Phil was extremely knowledgeable, thorough and patient. He answered all of our questions and put us at ease. If all of Fox's technicians are like Phil then you'll be in good hands.

We've been using FOX for the last few years for seasonal pest maintenance. Every time we see some sort of pest activity outside our regular seasonal treatment, they come quick and take care of it. The workers are always kind and courteous and answer my questions and concerns. We've recommended this company to a number of family and friends who have also used FOX for treatment.
