Bats are the only true flying mammals. There are many species in Greensboro and all of them are beneficial insect eaters, consuming
literally tons of harmful insects each night. The most common species to
move into houses is the Little Brown Bat (Myotis lucifugus).
These small animals are about 3-1/2 inches long with an 8 inch
wingspread. Their colors range from yellow-brown to dark brown.
Little Brown Bats roost in groups and are drawn to hot attics and
wall voids in the spring and summer to bear their young (one per female)
from about June-August. In the fall, most of these bats fly to winter
hibernation roosts in caves or old mine shafts.
Bats in Greensboro North Carolina should not be regarded as dangerous. However, about one bat in a
thousand MAY have rabies which eventually kills them. Little Brown Bats
cannot easily transmit this disease to humans or pets due to their small
teeth but problems can arise from trying to touch or pick up a sick
bat. Unprovoked attacks are extremely rare.
If bitten by a bat or if infectious material (such as saliva) from a
bat gets into your eyes, nose, mouth, or a wound — wash the affected
area thoroughly and get medical advice immediately. If a bat is found in
a room with a sleeping person, capture it without damaging the head and
place it in a container (See the Greensboro CDC page on “Bats and Rabies”
for more information and correct procedures). Dead bats should be kept
under refrigeration until tested. Contact your Greensboro NC Health District as
soon as possible. To avoid this disease, simply avoid touching bats, be
sure your house is bat-proof (at least the living area) and be sure your
pets are vaccinated. Call your veterinarian for vaccination
Histoplasmosis is another hazard in some states . This airborne
disease may be carried in bird and bat droppings. Few people exposed to
this fungal disease become seriously ill but there is a potential risk
of infection to any one removing or disturbing old, dusty bird or bat
