Signs to look for if Bats are present in your home or business:
At dawn or dusk, you may see these mammals entering or leaving your house or business. This is the time you can locate holes in your building structure they are entering. Bat droppings (guano) usually found in the main hole in attics. A single dropping from a little brown bat is about the size of a grain of rice. The big brown bat is twice that size. Is similar to mouse droppings but bat guano is left in large piles and over time turn into a powdery dust.
