- Shiny – Bat poop, unlike mouse poop, is filled with shiny insect body parts from their diet. You may catch it reflecting light out of the corner of your eye.
- Texture – It is dry and will crumble easily.
- Size – It varies in size depending on the bat species but is typically larger than mouse droppings.
- Location – You may find it sticking to the outside of your house, generally higher up on the wall or window. In places you wouldn’t find a mouse unless it somehow managed to walk sideways across an exterior wall.
Although bat poop is not good for us to be exposed to directly, there is a great following of people that believe bat poop is the best fertilizer ever . And I have say, I don’t think they’re all wrong about that.
Microbes are single-cell organisms so tiny that millions can fit into the eye of a needle.They are the oldest form of life on earth. Microbes in bat poop have been found to have bio remediation capabilities. This means bat guano can aid in cleansing toxic soils.
While we realize serious gardeners or farmers will pay a hefty price for bat guano fertilizer, there are safety precautions that need to be taken when cleaning up after a bat infestation. An easy way to think about this is like black mold. Black mold is a fungus that will grow in your home and make you very sick. It doesn’t grow in every home, it needs the right conditions, but once it does we all recognize that it is very dangerous. You wouldn’t cleanup black mold yourself, so don’t try to cleanup bat poop yourself either. Even if you intend to go put it in your garden.
As a bat removal company we answer a lot of questions about bat guano, better known as bat poop. We also have a lot of pictures on file of bat poop we have removed from homes and businesses across the country. Gross, we know.
Bat guano fertilizer helps hold together loose soils and makes dense soils lighter. This property alone can benefit the texture of the soil but in addition, bat poop is not easily washed away from the soil. Which means it benefits the plants and soil much longer than some inorganic fertilizers which are more easily removed from the soil.
Bat guano typically contains three major nutrients: 10% nitrogen, 3% phosphorus and 1% potassium. It also has many smaller micronutrients plants need for healthy growth. So what do the big three nutrients do?
Having bat poop in your attic is gross. We understand people’s desire to have it gone as soon as possible. Like mouse poop that can carry hantavirus, bat poop can carry histoplasma capsulatum which is the fungus that can cause you to become sick with the histoplasmosis virus .
The microbes can also increase water-holding capacity and air space by loosening the soil. Bat guano microbes are also efficient decomposers and help control the incidence of soil diseases and dangerous nematodes . Bat guano can also be added to a compost pile to speed up the decomposition process.
Bat poop is widely accepted as a great fertilizer. Here is why it makes a great fertilizer and why you shouldn’t handle the bat poop in your attic alone.
