Bats have had a bad reputation for a long time. Old tales, books, movies, television, and publicity have caused people to develop misconstrued notions about bats. The truth is, bats are incredibly important to our surrounding eco-system. Do you like mosquitos? Bats do! And they eat all of them so that mosquitos aren't eating you at your backyard cookout party. Aside from insect control, bats play a major role in our environment. It is important to always respect bats, and understand that they are innocent mammals that only want to survive.

For this reason, it is important that you never harm, trap, or kill wild bats. In fact, it is illegal in most states without the proper licenses and permits.

Bats Are Blind

They are not blind at all. In fact, Megachiroptera (tropical fruit bats) have pretty good eye sight because they have a pronounced visual cortex. Although Microchiroptera have smaller eyes, they can still see just fine. They do not use echolocation solely to navigate. They mostly use it to hunt for insects.

Raccoons live just about everywhere, from California all the way to the East Coast. These animals cause numerous problems not only to people, but to the environment as well. They live in hollow logs, under porches, attics and have even been found living In garages and in farm machinery. Usually in winter, Animal Control gets a lot of calls for Raccoons in people's homes. (Mainly being found in attics). Animal control will hopefully find these animals and safely remove them far from your home. Once removed and released the Raccoon has been known to find their way back to its "home". That's why Animal Control has been known to release them far enough away so they cannot return.
