  • We Can Solve It!
Many of Tennessee's wild animals have learned to adapt and even thrive in our homes. For example some wildlife have found that attics make great places to live. Other animals find refuge under homes or porches. Invariably, these animals cause damage. Rodents, like squirrels and rats, love to chew on electrical wires once in an attic, and this causes a serious fire hazard. Raccoons can cause serious contamination in an attic with their droppings and parasites. Same goes for bat or bird colonies. We specialize in solving Tennessee's wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

We do not handle dog or cat problems. If you need assistance with a domestic animal, such as a dog or a cat, you need to call your local Shelby county animal services for assistance. They can help you out with issues such as stray dogs, stray cats, spay & neuter programs, vaccinations, licenses, pet adoption, bite reports, deceased pets, lost pets, local animal complaints and to report neglected or abused animals. There is no free Collierville animal control for wildlife issues.

Collierville Wildlife Removal Tip: Do Bats Chew On Wires?

Many people know very well the advantage of having bats at the outside of their home or property due to the bat's nature of eating insects. However, as soon as they make their way inside the house, the situation is changed due to the noise they make which is really annoying to some people while these mammals also carry some dangerous diseases that are easily transmitted to human beings.

Now coming to the main point that do bats chew on wires? The answer would be a big No. The reason is they actually fall in the category of mammals and hail from the family of a mammal named chiroptera. These bats have more than 1000 types and all of them have different kind of diets but most of them normally eat insects. They consume insects of their weight. But they never chew on wires, woods or any other similar things.

These mammals have sharp teeth that they use only for eating the night flying insects but not for chewing the wires or woods. You can understand this more clearly if the diet of different kind of bats is discussed in more details.

Some bats are called insectivores as they eat only insects such as mosquitoes, moth and beetles. You might be surprised to know that a small bat can eat around 1200 mosquitoes in an hour. This type of insect consumes a lot of insects so it is really helpful to have them outside at the house which will not require you to use any mosquito's removal spray separately.

Some other types of bats are called frugivores as they mainly like to consume fruits, seeds and pollen from flower. They normally do not prefer to eat insects rather choose fruits like mangoes, dates, etc. Also these types of bats are known to drink the sweet water from humming bird feeders.

Apart from the above two, one more type of the bat is vampire whose diet is fish, bird, lizards, frog, etc. They can even eat other bats as well if required. Specially, this vampire bats love to drink blood, but do not worry as they don't drink human blood rather blood from cow, sheep, horse, etc.

So, if you are worried about your property in case any bats get inside the house, do not panic as they will not damage the property by chewing on wood or wires rather they only search for their foods like insects and fruits. However, living with bats under one roof is really difficult as already said above due to the disease they carry along with them. Also an annoying smell comes from the bats that is not bearable by many.
